I have a vivid memory of hearing this sung by a woman at a church I can’t recall. I was new in the area and was church shopping. The woman sang it pitch perfect beautiful, another of the hunerts in our churches’ talent pool for our conservative indie film company.
Mark Lowry is one of the most unappreciated singers in America. The guy has a great voice.
I’m reminded of this poem, too, about another mother of a great son:
By all means, let’s legalize all drugs, so that every law-abiding citizen can have that opportunity.
Yeah, but they’ll all vote Democrat, which is the point of the exercise.
You’ll have pot shops in Seattle,Jimmy,selling stuff way more powerful than what we had back in the 70s.
Comedians who perform in Seattle often poke fun at what a haven it is for weirdos and druggies. One comedian I saw compared a downtown park with Dawn of the Dead, and another one said after visiting Pike Place Market: “God bless you, Seattle. Most cities would lock those people up, but you just let ‘em roam free…”
So that’ll give you an idea of what this place is like BEFORE legalization. I can’t wait to see what it’ll be like in a couple years. At least the comedians will have plenty of material to work with.
Sounds like downtown Vancouver…step lightly to miss the drug addicts and panhandlers.
We call that “meth mouth”. Repeated meth use ruins the jawbone, teeth, and gums. It literally takes away your substance…
Yeah,the moonshiners in Tennessee have moved on.
I know there is a dedicated post coming today, but until then, a reminder:
When the attack on Pearl Harbor was over, the U.S. human toll:
USA: 218 KIA, 364 WIA.
USN: 2,008 KIA, 710 WIA.
USMC: 109 KIA, 69 WIA.
Civilians: 68 KIA, 35 WIA.
TOTAL: 2,403 KIA, 1,178 WIA.
God bless and save America.
My latest Facebook rant:
Every once in a while some Leftist – typically at some Media Entertainment Conglomerate – performs a jig over some library, typically in the American South, allegedly “banning” a book. Today, I learned that jig is being performed by Carolyn Kellogg at the LATimes. Her target: a library in South Carolina. The book: actually it’s a comic book – Alan Moore’s “Neonomicon”.
I’ve searched within the entire Jefferson-Madison Regional Library system for books by conservative authors. Here is a list of books, using Kellogg’s (and the Left’s) standard that if a library chooses not to shelve it, that are “banned” by this library system:
“Ideas Have Consequences”, by Richard M. Weaver
“The Politics of Prudence” by Russell Kirk
“American Cicero” by Brad Birzer
“Marriage: The Rock on which the Family is Built” by William E. May
“Adam and Eve After the Pill” by Mary Eberstadt
“Love and Economics: It Takes a Family to Raise a Village” by Jennifer Roback Morse Phd
These are just a few books that can’t be challenged by families using the Jefferson-Madison Regional Library system in Central Virginia because the powers that be won’t even allow them to be shelved. What are those running this library system afraid? That someone might begin to question Left-wing dogma? Does Kellogg and the Leftist editors at the LATimes (and elsewhere) *really* want to discuss “banned” books?!? Fine, bring it on!
Btw, Kellogg might want to look into an incident in September 2000, when students at the University of California, Berkeley seized copies of “Cop Killer: How Mumia-Abu Jamal Conned Millions Into Believing He Was Framed” by Dan Flynn during a protest and burned them. But that was just another moment of Left-wing censorship flushed down the memory hole.
Who is really trying to keep material out of people’s hands and thoughts out of people’s heads? Really?
What a wuss. This isn’t really about religion at all. It’s about some spoiled punk who can’t handle being around people who disagree with him.
One of my best high school friends was Jewish. And this was at a catholic school that required the whole school to attend mandatory mass services together. But he didn’t whine about it, or complain to the administration. He understood that it was part of getting a good education. He sat respectfully and enjoyed the service. He didn’t give us a hard time about it; in fact we had some really interesting conversations about the differences between going to church and going to Temple. We all learned from each other and we all got along; there was no butthurt whining. That’s how these things are supposed to work.
