Sunday Faith Blog

Our blogger buddy Constitutional Insurgent (CI) is left his home this weekend for Texas where he’ll be a week before leaving for “across the pond,” as he puts it.  That would probably mean an area of upheaval, where he could be in peril.

My post today is to ask you all to pray for CI’s safety and with gratitude toward him for his service.   I also ask for prayers for his wife and daughters, that they will face yet another deployment with the courage they have faced it with before.

CI,  I know you’ll probably still comment from time to time, but just know that we’re thinking of you and are wishing you THE BEST.


Ecclesiastes 3:8 – A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace.

Z     ALSO, when I heard that there are Bible Studies in the White House, I knew this would happen.   But I’m still amazed.  Imagine?  Other White Houses have had these but this is TRUMP and the hate emerges in such strength.  I wonder if anybody yelled when THIS happened, just to name one?

  1. Prayers for CI (not on the government dime ☺ ).
    As for Bible Studies on the government dime…
    Congress’ First Act: A Resolution to Pray
    On September 6, 1774, the first act of the first session of the Continental Congress was to pass a resolution to open its next meeting with prayer. This prayer included reading Psalm 35 and the following words:
    O Lord our heavenly Father, high and mighty King of kings and Lord of lords, who dost from thy throne behold all the dwellers on earth, and reignest with power supreme and uncontrolled over all the kingdoms, empires, and governments; look down in mercy, we beseech thee, on these American States … desiring to be henceforth dependent only on thee; to thee they have appealed for the righteousness of their cause; to thee do they now look up for that countenance and support which thou alone canst give; take them, therefore, heavenly Father, under thy nurturing care … Be thou present, God of wisdom, and direct the councils of this honorable assembly … that order, harmony, and peace may be effectually restored, and truth and justice, religion and piety, prevail and flourish amongst thy people … and crown them with everlasting glory in the world to come. All this we ask in the name and through the merits of Jesus Christ, thy Son, our Saviour. Amen! (Journals of Congress, via Morris, pp 246,249f; Federer, pp 136,137; Barton, p92)

    No prayers to “Allah” there.

    Thoughts and prayers for CI. Texas can be a dangerous place because folks there carry their shotguns, deer rifles, and assorted hand weapons with them in their pickup trucks just in case somebody with a Notre Dame or University of Oklahoma bumper sticker crosses their path. Things haven’t been the same since they passed all those laws against drinking and driving, and closed the drive-in liquor stores.

    Seriously, my God be with CI and know that the Gheeezer’s are thinking about him

    Have a safe deployment CI. By the time you get back, Trump will have fixed everything! 😉


  4. Baysider says:

    Thank you CI. Whether we agree with each direction of the military by our leaders, your very presence stands in the gap between a peaceful life for us, and those who want to get our stuff. Bottom line. So thank you, blessings to your family, and safety/success in your deployment.


  5. Kid says:

    CI – Absolutely. CI has some control over events, as his family does not. It is harder, certainly at times, to be sitting at home hoping the doorbell never rings.

    Pay no attention to the ‘special people’ Z. Or laugh at them as they have nothing to stand on to cause any change in that situation. Let them suffer and I for one enjoy their suffering.

    ONLY read this if you can take it…this horrible accident is one I only post FOR PRAYERS, not to make anybody as unhappy as the facts made me…I can’t stop thinking about the mother…. just read and pray or just pray, thanks:\

    Kid, I wouldn’t kid ourselves…if you’re responding to the Bible Study in the WH with your second comment, they could very well get it thrown out of the “PUBLIC BUILDING”…of course, Reagan had them, and other presidents, but it’s TRUMP they have to hate the most.
    And yes, I think it’s harder at home. How about the world wars without email, no phone calls…not hearing from a husband for a year? Unbelievable fear, 24/7.


    Baysider…I hope you’re doing well.

    Bob, very funnY!

    Ed, a friend just got back from TX, near Ft Worth…where he and some friends went to the rodeo….he told me there was a singing of The Star Spangled Banner, then I'[m Proud to Be An American….flags all over, then a Christian prayer……and everyone was cheering, loving their country and their God.
    Like it used to be everywhere…..let’s see how long TX can continue like this with the libs moving in there in droves.
    Sadly, too, our textbooks are largely written/published in TX, and they’re turning much more liberal, too. (financed by largely Arab governments, by the way)

    I want to thank BLOGLESS SUNDAY at THE PIRATES COVE for listing me in the top 15 posts…in regard to “How can felons run if they can’t vote?” post..
    Also, if this person comes back, I’m sorry I couldn’t leave a comment but my whole name is needed and doesn’t have “will not publish” next to it…so…consider this a hearty thanks! I do thank you!


  8. Kid says:

    Z, They had snail mail in at least WWII, and it was air mail. Tons of letters between my Mom and Dad those 4 years.


  9. Kid says:

    Z, There is no ‘seperation of Church and State’ in the constitution.


  10. Wow Z – I am truly honoured! So much so that I’m at a bit of a loss for words. That, coupled with me having a short break in a very long day……as much as I enjoy discussions on the roles of government and religion, I’ll hold my fire other than to say that I certainly have no issue with WH staff holding an informal and voluntary bible study.

    I really appreciate the prayers and well wishes!


  11. geeez2014 says:

    Kid, they waited weeks and probably months between letters…that would have killed me. I know there was snail mail….Some guy on Batan during the death marches wasn’t getting much mail! Lovely that there were ‘tons’ of letters between your folks! Do you have any of them?
    And ya, I know there’s no separation in the constitution….but look how successful the atheists have been getting chaplains fired, etc., in the military! The Ten Commandments out of public buildings…etc I’m still surprised Moses is on some walls in Congress!


  12. Kid says:

    Mail to/from POW camps was likely poor if at all. But between non-POW and home I think it was pretty good. Someone with experience could clear that up. I don’t have the metrics but I think it was pretty decent between Europe and the USA.

    Yes, they have ahd success because – activist judges. You go judge shopping you’ll always find one to accomodate which is why the SC was so important and still is.


  13. geeez2014 says:

    Kid, would you admit communication wasn’t as fast as it is now and women waited weeks to hear their loved ones were okay? I know people who did…but yes, mail worked…if there weren’t raging battles or death marches, etc.
    SC or not isn’t helping…10 Commandments are OUT.


  14. Kid says:

    Z, I don’t know. Had to be depent on plane space availability and scheduling. Probably a very variable answer.

    Well, As long as we keep fighting the swamp, silly comments by Trump be damned, there is a chance. Trump is fighting a war wtih democrats, their media, most republicans. I give leeway. It’s America’s last chance. 10 Commandments could come back. The lunatic fringe is not that hard to beat if you want to. We have lately been giving in to PC, to blacks, to BLM, teo the Black caucus. Let’s put our boots back on and tell them to put up or shut up. They bring nothing of value to America and if they feel persecuted let them show it in indisputable terms. They all get much more than us normal folks and thet can all go to hell as far as I’m concerned.


  15. Baysider says:

    🙂 MAIL STORY. How likely is this?
    In the exodus from the Philippines in 1941 Col. Wendell Fertig’s plane went down on the wild and woolly island of Mindanao from which he organized and ran an ersatz resistance group during the war.

    He gave a letter for the army & his wife to 2 buddies who escaped by small boat and – unbelievably – slipped through the Japanese net and the waves to make it to Australia. He told them to deliver that letter to army command with the intent they’d forward a portion to his wife. They didn’t. Instead, they just dropped it in an ordinary letter box. In Australia. In early 1942! Months later she got it in San Francisco and was able to pin his location for the army because of a private code between them.

    Z, I’m ‘well’ – sooo much happening. We should share over a hamburger.


  16. geeez2014 says:

    CI, we’re on your side! Sorry that did get stuck in moderation, but thanks for writing.


  17. geeez2014 says:

    KID! An email is faster than ANY Snail mail..that’s my only point!!!

    Baysider, let’s meet at The Counter again the week after this one…I’ll be gone a few days this week. Email me what days work for you. Looking forward to seeing you.
    That mail story is amazing!


  18. Kid says:

    Z, Absolutely. I was just trying to stay in the moment (1940’s) I Think my folks got letters within a couple weeks of sending. yea, imagine even that delay.


  19. Kid says:

    So imagine a Supreme Court Case on Can the president and Willing members in attendance reflect on the Bible messages. It’s laughable in the legal sense.


  20. geeez2014 says:

    Kid “Can the president and Willing members in attendance reflect on the Bible messages. It’s laughable in the legal sense.”
    You need to go to law school QUICK and defend this! ! Great statement!


  21. geeez2014 says:

    Oh NO!~ FOX is going to miss Bolling…he was a good one but I’m sure he’s done now, too..Ailes, O’Reilly, the Left tried it with Hannity but didn’t succeed,. and now who’d have thought it’d be Bolling, who’s supposed to be SO happily married, according to his remarks.
    So sad.


  22. Kid says:

    Z, who knows about Bolling. Not I, but this is their favored method for silencing the right.

    I have no idea what went on, but I will tell you this – I have had women in the workplace taunt me, tease me, waggle in front of me, and if I had responded to that, I could easily be substituted for a Bolling in this story. Just a little perspective from the other side. Not saying that happened.

    I will tell you though at one place I worked, 4 women left and told me they could no longer work there knowing they couldn’t have me. Yea, I thought it was ridiculous too buit still.


  23. Kid says:

    More specifically, it is easy for a guy to think a woman is just fooling around and tossing loaded comments out there, and it is then easy for the guy to think, sure I’ll play, it doesn’t mean anything – all in fun then Whammo, you find yourself in court.


  24. Which makes the “Pence Policy” understandable.


  25. geeez2014 says:

    kid, he’s sent pix of men’s private parts…the news calls it “unsolicited”… pretty bad. BUT, no proof. yet. He’s a good guy and I hope he is proven innocent.
    sure, it’s ‘all fun’ if it’s just ‘cute’ remarks..but this bad.


  26. geeez2014 says:

    CI, it’s a pleasure ….good luck with the week’s work before you go.

    Ed…if it were only that. But it’s texting male genitalia to women. Another woman came out today saying she got some. this happened a while back, so I KNOW there is an all-out search for ANYTHING ANTI REPUBLICAN, ANYTHING ANTI FOX…..

    This is SOROS…Clinton and Obama.


  27. Kid says:

    If he did then he is a moron.

    I’m content to call it 50/50 until something concrete shows up. even the idiot obama was smart enough to conclude (his words I read), that never send anyone an email with incriminating content becuause emails never go away.

    Btw – they don’t. clinton may have bleached-bit her server but every on of those emails travelled over the internet and believe me – Someone Has Them on backup
