    City leaders and local pastors... what? No outcry about the separation of "church and state"? It's really too bad the pastors don't have the fortitude to stand up against the "state".

    I read comments from all the do nothings in this town who only complain. Why dont you do something like pray where ever you are. it doesn't matter. God does answer prayer. Make no mistake. That's my say

    Breathing regular. Try holding your breath for about a week. Works every time.

    @TiredofDB , Well that wouldn't work if he was praying for something besides his own death. It's pray to God but row to shore for those who believe in God. For the rest it's row to shore. So it works either way. But now I know if I'm "tired" of someone I can just request they cause their own death. Could be National Pray for Others to Die Day?

    You're not doing anything wrong. God hears your prayers. You must have faith and believe. He loves you. If you have not given your life to Christ Jesus today would be great. Ask him to forgive you of your sins and to come into your heart. Find a church home (Liberty Church in FF) is where I go. Be blessed ☺

    The Mister, I complain about this every year. It should take place on a church property not the steps of city hall.

    I hope they paid to rent the space for this private party.

    This should never happen at City Hall, period. Therefore, we should have an atheist gathering at the same event. Equal time?
