I have a great idea, forget going to the voting booth, we can vote via our smart phones. One click and you have the next law, congressman, governor, and even president. This whole Electoral College thing; it is completely unfair. How can a few people out in Montana have the equal standing as the city of Las Angeles, New York City, or Chicago? It is dumb. I know at the moment we are a Republic. I understand the reason for the Electoral College, yet in this great time of advancement we can set our feelings aside and allow the smartest people in the room to make the choices for us.

I have heard it said this way; human civilization began in Mesopotamia and we then spread out all over the globe. The farther people went the more innovative and smart their offspring became. Then people started to invade the United States and some tried to cross the country. People like my family only made it as far as Iowa. Yay me! But, those really innovative and adventurous types made it all the way to California the state with the greatest of ideas, policies, and tolerance. I would happily forbid anyone in Iowa to vote and give our will to the great people of California.

We should not have to wait and wait for clean water in Detroit and to stop the insane wars that we keep getting into to further an elitist agenda. It’s time to stop sending people to prison because of the color of their skin. It is time to treat people with respect regardless of their gender and sexual orientation, to pay people a living wage and make sure everyone receives healthcare. We live in a country that truly needs a reformed education system. Not a Betsy DeVos!

So, as long as we have it clear, no more unfair Electoral College, and to vote, no ID is necessary. Please, people in Sweden feel free to interfere with our elections the Russians got it wrong! Basically you must know how to operate a smart phone and like clean water. Simple, or is it?

“Shaken up”

I know I am going to get some flack for this and almost decided not to post this yet even when a tragedy, one as terrible as violent acts on elected officials takes place it is cause to pause and think.  Maybe I am just morbid in my thinking. Maybe I just say what the first thing is that comes to my mind. Yet it appears members of Congress were shot by a coward.
 Rightly so, members of Congress are “shaken up.” I don’t want to undermine this, yet maybe just maybe.  These men who vote to send soldiers into combat for profit, who wish to essentially kill people by taking away healthcare, these privileged few who lord over the people with draconian laws imprisoning more people than Russia and China combined, the list goes on. Let me make it clear these acts of violence against unarmed people are cowardly and detestable, yet so is the actions of those who were “shaken up.”  It is easy to impose life threatening action from behind a desk, it is not so fun when the shoes on the other foot. 
I pray for the Congress this day the members and officers injured, and those traumatized by this wicked event.  Maybe it will bring about unity and a time of reflection on why there is such division in America. 
God bless.

Nate Sprott takes you on a no holds barred look into the madness of religion in this first comedy special.  If you get offended easy you might as well not listen!

As we are still trying to get over the election of 2016 hoping that things do not get any worse, Nate gives us some words of Jesus regarding division.  As you know we are experiencing great division in this country.  Is it a sign of the times? Are we on a path towards a great revival?  Or our we headed down the road of destruction?  Find out on this episode of The Backyard Preacher Podcast.

“Owe no one nothing but to love one another.”  During this divisive time we must look to the scriptures to see how we as Christians should act during a Trump Administration.  Nate will discuss Romans chapter 13, allowing us to deal with the upcoming crisis.

 

What the heck, Donald Trump is President elect!  This news has rocked many to the core as they stand in disbelief that such a man could be President of this country.  As I have said before it is not Trump we must be concerned with, it is his followers who have been emboldened to live out their built up hate.  We must not lower ourselves to their level.  We must instead be Christ to all people, love overcomes, we must fight the good fight even if it leads us to our own cross!

The church needs to read our own parables given by our Master.  We should also ask for repentance for our love of money.  Money has truly become our God.
