Some issues just lend themselves very naturally to national campaigns. With this in mind, we offer this suggestion to Her Thighness …
This past weekend(Dec 19-21) was a festival of high school football state championship games, ten games in all. The previous weekend featured the Six Man championships.
Texas high school football is organized by classification according to the student population of each school with 5A being the largest, followed by 4A, 3A, 2A, 1A and then Six Man. Each classification has two divisions, once again student population determines which teams in each district are designated Div I or II.
With that out of the way, twelve state champions were crowned in all. What is amazing about the two Six Man championship games played on 14 Dec., the attendance for the Div.I game between Crowell(population 928) and May(population 1,942) was 6,842. In contrast, the attendance at the Florida 8A state championship game was 9,979.
The total attendance for all twelve state championship games was in excess of 230,000. The 5A Div.I state championship game, featuring the #2 team in the country set a new attendance record for a Texas state championship game breaking a record that had stood since 1977, with 54,347.
Even Gov. Perry was there to celebrate the festivities, presenting the game offensive and defensive MVP awards, as well as the Championship Trophies.
Besides numerous teams repeating as state champs, one team, Aledo High School, won the 4A Div.II championship and also set a new National Record for most points scored in a season,breaking the 1,000 point barrier with 1,023.
It was a festival for those of us who truly love our high school football. The finality of it means another long nine month wait until we get to do it again.
BTW, the attendance records at this year’s state championship festivities is also a little embarrassing to the numerous NCAA bowl games.
You can read all about this military “couple” that had their “marriage” “blessed” at the Ft. Bragg chapel at The Fayetteville Observer. Where the Rev. Harry Abernathy said:
…the liturgy was one of blessing, not marriage, but the two were very similar. He added that the couple’s relationship was a sign of God’s love.
I have no idea where this alleged Rev. gets his information or how he was ordained, God views homosexual behavior as an abomination.
Lev. 20:13“`If a man lies with a man as one lies with a woman, both of them have done what is detestable. They must be put to death; their blood will be on their own heads.
Lev. 21:6[Priests] must be holy to their God and must not profane the name of their God. Because they present the offerings made to the LORD by fire, the food of their God, they are to be holy
Of course the favorite buzz word to describe me and those that agree with me is “homophobe.” Which, in its pure translation, makes us appear as fearful of men. Nothing could be further from the truth, but I can live with that label since the post-modern definition also includes “disgust” for this type of behavior.
Also, since words do have meaning, I will never use the word “gay” in describing the disgusting and unnatural sexual practices of those who have gender identity disorder.
However, what I do fear is the damage done to society as a whole by the promotion of this abominable practice by so many. Take for example the following story of a man raised by his mother and her “partner.” Growing Up With Two Mothers:The Untold Children’s View:
Whether homosexuality is chosen or inbred, whether gay marriage gets legalized or not, being strange is hard; it takes a mental toll, makes it harder to find friends, interferes with professional growth, and sometimes leads one down a sodden path to self-medication in the form of alcoholism, drugs, gambling, antisocial behavior, and irresponsible sex. The children of same-sex couples have a tough road ahead of them—I know, because I have been there. The last thing we should do is make them feel guilty if the strain gets to them and they feel strange. We owe them, at the least, a dose of honesty.
As more and more states allow homosexuals to “marry,” the greater the risk to any children that are adopted by these “couples.” They certainly won’t be producing off spring.
“A man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and they will become one flesh. ” (Gen. 2:23, 24)
Then we have a more revealing look at the vile practices of too many homosexuals in this piece, Why I Cannot Blame Russia And India For Taking On The Gays:
Gay male culture in the United States, Canada, Latin America, and much of Europe is sick. It is literally plagued with disease — not only HIV (which is rising again), but also syphilis (which has made a comeback). And Michelangelo Signorile, the dowager prince of gay news at the Huffington Post, admitted at long last what gay watchdog groups had been denying for decades upon decades: the chronic, timeless state of the homosexual man is to chase after pubescent boys.
There is much more disturbing information included in the above article.
As for what has happened at Ft. Bragg, a proud and storied Army base since 1918(as Camp Bragg), where too many American heroes to list have trained and defended this great nation, has now been debased by the very forces who’s intention it is to destroy all that America stands for.
I offer no apology while I vomit at this outrage.
Tuesday on the Senate floor, Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) took a swipe at his fellow Republicans who disagreed with him on support of the Ryan-Murray budget deal, saying that Republicans who vote against the budget deal lack “intellectual integrity.”
Really, John? Really?
Actually, I think lost my intellectual integrity in 2008 when I voted for John McCain.
But then, when I really think about it, I wasn’t voting for McCain at all. I was voting for Sarah Palin.
