Terrorism should be defeated with love...and superior firepower...- Terry Ingle
"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness." --Declaration of Independence, July 4, 1776

"Socialism is precisely the religion that must overwhelm Christianity. … In the new order, Socialism will triumph by first capturing the culture via infiltration of schools, universities, churches and the media by transforming the consciousness of society." Antonio Gramsci - Marxist - teacher of Saul Alinsky

I can hardly wait!!!

I'm SO looking forward to the retreat this year. I look forward to it every year, but this summer has been particularly draining. I definitely need a boost. I've been told that the attendance is going to be way down this year. I have asked a few guys why they aren't coming and I get,"Can't afford it", "Been there, done that", "Don't have the time", and my personal favorite, "Not interested". To me it begs the question, "WHY"???? I know that money is tight right now, for everyone, and I know that 120 bucks is a lot, I can't afford it either, (refer to blogs below) but I can't afford not to go. I'm just spiritually wasted...pooped...worn out. I need to be with other guys who are going through the same thing and looking for a Godly kick in the butt to keep going. If you are reading this please, take a few seconds right where you are to say a prayer for those that are going, for the speakers, the organizers, and staff, that we would see God move in a mighty way in the hearts and lives of those that are feeling just a bit beat up. Thanks...
