Bill, I suspect that if you checked the leanings of strong church goers you also would find strong gun support. The likelihood of strengthening gun regulations is a pipe dream, it just is not going to happen. Its a mental health issue anyway.

GC, My last post was a Prayer as well.

America has many, many more Christians than NRA bought (or scared) Politicians. I've been thru most States in America and the one common denominator is the multitude of Steeples reaching toward the Sky in every Hamlet, Town or City from Bladenboro, North Carolina, to Wilkes Barre, Pennsylvania to Salt Lake City, Utah to Seattle, Washington to Los Angeles California to New York, New York.

We as a society have a MAJOR problem that is killing and maiming Our most innocent, Our School Children and Teachers !

The 8th Commandment that was carved on the Tablets that Moses brought down from the Mountain clearly stated "Thou Shall Not Kill". We've allowed the NRA to own the Politicians in every State to turn their Eyes away in their worship of Mammon and Greed for Power even though 80% of Us want change.

Our Churches and the Christian People are extremely powerful in numbers as We recently witnessed on the Beer/Wine Vote. It's time for us Christian Soldiers to stand for what's right. People Who need a Gun to Kill a Buck or a Bear don't need a High Velocity Assault Pistol or Rifle that shoots numerous times in seconds and can be re-loaded in seconds. People Who own Guns should be held responsible for the actions of their Guns should their Children or others kill others with their Guns like a 50 Year minimum should they fail to secure them for starters.

One of the saddest and most Vile things that has exposed our Children and Teachers is that The North Carolina Legislature has cut funding for Mental Health Care, yet now allow Guns on Campuses thanks to their Fear of the NRA.

We are a Strong Nation, not a spineless pathetic one Who is owned by Rich Man's Gold such as that served up to Politicians by the Lobby for Gun and Weapon Manufacturers who own the NRA !

Australia's Conservative Politicians stepped up and banned Assault Weapons several Years ago and the mass Murders stopped ! Now they are considered Heros for their fortitude !

The Cheryl and Morris Brisson Fundraising Committee of New Center Baptist Church in Bladenboro want to thank the citizens of Bladen, Robeson, and Columbus County’s for their show of Christian love and concern toward Cheryl and Morris at this trying time in their lives. The purchase of Boston Butts and donations that were made to them was outstanding. Special thanks to the members of New Center Baptist Church who assisted with the project, and a very special thanks to Berry Lewis of Carolina Country Catering, Ronald Allen of Allen Brothers Farms, Charles Ray Peterson, Jerry Willoughby, Bo Pharr and Jeff Edwards for the various ways they assisted.
Please remember Cheryl and Morris in your daily prayers as she continues to fight esophagus cancer. Thanks again for helping us make this fundraiser a success.

The problem with your logic Herb is that this is not
Iran; this is not Israel; this is the United States of America. Founded by people who came here to "freely" worship God. And there is only one God. The idea that people only pray to the One and Only God on public school property only when their school is being attacked or after it has been attacked and children are left dead; is foreign to what our nation was founded upon. I DID SOMETHING THAT I WAS NOT SUPPOSE TO DO-I PRAYED. Let that ring in all of our ears until our nation gets back to what it was founded upon.

But I digress. Sixty-nine years ago this month, a revival "broke out" in the Oak Grove community as Oak Grove Original Free Will Baptist church gathered to pray for rain. A person who lived in the community saw a Christian walking to the prayer meeting. The Christian invited the onlooker to go to the prayer service. Upon the invitation, the onlooker was said to have stated that "it was useless to pray for rain". That is a non-biblical statement.

The Christian proceeded on to the prayer meeting and the church prayed for rain. It began to rain and the showers came down right to the onlookers land line and stopped. Needless to say, the next time the church met to pray for rain, the onlooker gladly went to the church house to kneel beside others to pray for rain. I might add, that souls were saved in that revival.

Here in June again, sixty-nine years later, Oak Grove Free Will Baptist is holding REVIVAL SERVICES through Friday night(it is dry and souls are in need of being saved. Look at the line up of speakers on BOL's upcoming events. Come join us; who knows, it may start raining H20 and there may be a harvest of souls. If you are saved, COME AND GET REEVIVED; if you are lost, COME AND GET SAVED. God knows our nation needs both.

Are we willing to allow Muslim children to carry their Qurans and bow to Mecca at the appropriate time each day. Will we let the Jewish children read their Torah's? Lets not forget the atheists and agnostics, they will demand equal time for meditation and certainly will not want their children exposed to religion. I suppose I could name a few other obscure religious groups that will demand equal time, but that is enough to chew on. It gets complicated in a public school, hence the need for separation of church and state. Life is complicated enough in our schools.

Bill, Isn't it ironic that the only time teachers can pray on a public school campus is while a hostage situation is in progress or the carnage has already been left behind. As long as I have my right mind I will remember a teacher after one of these shootings say, "I DID SOMETHING I WAS NOT SUPPOSE TO DO, I PRAYED". How sad, for one of the leaders of our precious children and grandchildren to have to make such a statement; when all the while she should have been able with a clear unfettered conscience to have been able to say, praise God I lead my little ones in prayer at the start of each school day.

What have We become as a Nation ? There have been 47 SCHOOL Shootings in America since The Sandy Hook 2nd Grade Massacre. Since then North Carolina's General Assembly has made it legal to have Guns on School Campuses. Are they more afraid of the NRA or us ? I think they should be more concerned with the latter.

My First Grand Child will attend Kindergarten this Fall and He like I was at 5 Years of age should never need to be concerned about hiding in School Closets to keep from being Killed by a Person with a Gun.

The Bible's 8th Commandment TRUMPS the US Constitution's 2nd Amendment.

It's time for Christian Pastors and Christians to step up and end this madness !

Failure to do so is pure uncovered weakness !

We as American People owe it to Our Children to Protect them. To date across America it ain't happening ! :!muscle:

Went to the West Bladen graduation ceremony last night, the gym was packed, everyone in the crowd was silent while their graduates received their diplomas, the speakers were short and direct in their comments, one of the best, well organized graduations I've ever attended. The administration as well as all the folks in attendance at this event need to be praised for their efforts. -- WELL DONE WBHS

It is a total shame that elected officials cant sit down and discuss the needs of the students in Bladen County and leave personal interest out of the conversation. This is our future attending those schools, I have 3 of my own attending 3 different schools in Bladen County. We need unity in between the Board of Commissioners and the Board of Education to further the needs of our county school system. I am not ashamed to say that I voted FOR the tax increase, the money was going to our school system in Bladen County. I was disappointed when it did not pass and here we are, can't even sit down in a room with the 2 boards and try to come up with a solution to the problem. I understand the situation in East Arcadia, as I ride by the school and looks bad, but this is not the only school that needs some major work done to it!

A rumor, actually a lie, is being circulated in Bladenboro that the two-cent tax increase proposed in the upcoming budget is necessary due to the 'previous administration' leaving the town in a terrible financial condition. After talking with the Town Administrator, she stated this is 'a lie' (her own words). I was part of that previous administration and have known all along that the town's finances were solvent. The fund balance has always exceeded the minimum required by the state and though some of the overall funds may have been used for budgeting over the years, it helped the citizens during difficult economic conditions. No town funds were squandered by the 'previous administration' in order to harm the current board! Bladenboro's municipal election in November, 2013 was waged on the premise of 'abuse of power'. Now that we have a new mayor, three new council members and a new administrator, I suppose their proposals and actions are irrelevant regardless of how they impact the citizens. I am opposed to this two-cent tax increase and unless you enjoy paying more taxes (by the way, the county is doing revaluations as you're reading this, so your county property taxes will increase also), then don't bother to attend the public hearing on June 9th. Otherwise, if you agree with this post, make your presence known at the Bladenboro Town Hall on June 9th at 7:00 PM regarding this matter.
