Don't be fooled
Stand up America for your freedoms, especially your religious freedom.
If you have been listening to the news the last few weeks, you are aware that our Government is requiring insurance companies to provide contraceptives under the new health care mandate. In addition, they initially stated the Catholic Church would have to provide this for their employees although it violates their beliefs and President Obama signed an executive order promising this would not occur in order to get health care passed. Our President's answer to the uproar this caused was to require the insurance company to provide the contraception instead of the Catholic employer. Only time will show the real outcome of our government's involvement in our religious freedoms guaranteed by the separation of church and state.
The latest sensation in this debate has been the testimony of a female law student at Georgetown University talking about the difficulty she and her peers have paying for their contraceptives while in college. This my friends has been stated as a matter of women's health issues. Does anyone believe such a story?
In Sumter County as well as all 159 counties in Georgia as well as most states in our country, contraceptives are available to everyone through the Health Dept. As a social service employee for 30 years, I know for a fact these services are available and have been for years. If this is already available to our citizens, why would mandating insurance companies to provide contraceptive be a matter of women's health?
You, my fellow citizens, are being duped! Is this law student too good to go to the available clinics for her contraceptives? So what is the real agenda here? Is it just the Govt. intervening in the personal morals and private lives of our citizens? I urge you to consider whether you want this kind of interference into your private life and your faith. It is not about getting all the freebies you can get, it is about your ability to hold on to your freedoms. Speak up, don't give them away because you may never get them back!
Who has the key?
Please open the five (5) locked up new tennis courts at the Americus high school new tennis court complex. We repeatedly see people having to leave the new tennis court complex during non-school event hours and weekends. Please let us know "exactly" who has authority, decision-making, and leadership over the "lock and key" situations/circumstances involving the SPLOST FUNDED new AHS tennis court complex on OAK Ave. Thank you for the community recreation oppertunities.
Supports Jacob Battle
I would like to make a stand supporting Jacob Battle. I know Jacob to be a very strong Christian man who has beliefs and opinions that need to be shared. I've read recently where someone does not like his writings. Sounds like she has a problem with hearing the truth. Jacob, being an African American, can say things that other groups can't say. He speaks the truth and the Truth often hurts. Please continue Jacob, the Majority awaits.
It’s a hateful world
As i listen to the legendarysong that Louis Armstrong sang about the wonderful world he vision's within his world, In his day, Is far different than this world we live In today He sang of things on, and above the earth, which many people are confused about the difference of earth, and the world. Maybe Mr. Armstrong was a believer. But Jesus had a different view of the world In John 16: 33, He said, In the world you shall have troubles. 1stJohn 2: 15:16 confirms what Jesus said about the world, love not the world, neither the things In the world, for all that Is In the world Is the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life. John said If any man love the world, the love of God Is not In him. All over the earth we see acts of hate being perpetrated on Innocent people, our Youth are killing one another, In schools, In the streets, and In our homes. Who can be more Innocent than an unborn baby, but they are being murder by the billions on earth, through abortion by the world. Sex trafficking of little girls, boys, and women belong to the hateful world. Uni bombers fill with rage, which is evoke by their fears, and anger, causes them to murder people, and self destruct. Race relations on every front is being challenged. The perpetual struggle for superior status Is being perpetrated by all nations. This is a product of the world, pride, which keep people blind to worthlessness. The Holy Bible say we are as a vapor, here today, gone tomorrow. So what Is the solution for a hateful people, Jesus answer that question In John 16: 33, He said In me you shall have peace, may be this Is where Louis Armstrong saw beauty at. Why don't you let Jesus help you see the beauty In your brothers, and sisters? Jesus said It was by love, and kindness that we were drown to him. Forgive and live together In unity. Shalom to them who obey.
Jacob Battle Sr.
