America, Church, and Driving: PRAY FOR US SINNERS JACKSON #10 :00CHRISTIAN BAPTIST SUN. SERVICE 9:30 AM&11:00 AM SUN.

I’ll be honest, you could say most of these were from a horror game and I wouldn’t doubt you.  Implying America isn’t a horror game lately. America isn’t a game. It is just a horror. Visible from i-40, between Interstate 40 and old Route 66, the Groom, TX cross Englewood Ohio @saathi1013 #i feel like you would appreciate this YEP. hey so fun fact about that last one it’s located right by the I-75 highway and anyone driving in or out of cincinnati could see it from the road and it was horrifying the first time i saw it because i felt like i was about to die. the statue was called king of kings, but i only ever heard it referred to as touchdown jesus. just imagine yourself kicking a football through those lofty open arms…..ohio 1, satan 0. in 2010 touchdown jesus was very sadly struck by lightning and burned down, possibly because so many heathens were calling him touchdown jesus and imagining playing football with the lord. or possibly because that’s just what happens when you build a giant styrofoam and fiberglass statue next to an artificial pond on a hill in the middle of rural ohio. fortunately our good friends down in englewood have contingency plans for god’s wrath and the end of the world, so they built a new statue named lux mundi. unfortunately, lux mundi is not as amped to play football. but he does look like he’s down for hugs. RIP, touchdown jesus. we miss you. 😢 The skeletal remains of touchdown Jesus is one of the more horrifying things I’ve seen. The line “heathens were calling him touchdown Jesus and imagining playing football with the Lord” is hilarious to me because one of the most pervasive Christian summer camp/“get the kids excited” songs is called My Father’s House and talks about Heaven as a great vacation destination, and everyone’s favorite line is “It’s a big, big yard where we can play football! TOUCHDOWN!” And yes, please do imagine several hundred kids getting more excited about playing football with God than literally anything else that week.

Memes, Ballers, and 🤖: Baller Alert's Black History Month Facts Baller Alert's Black History Month Facts- blogged by- @peachkyss ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Did you know that BridgetBiddyMason was one of the first African American women to buy property in America? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ When Bridget "Biddy" Mason began purchasing property, she used the land for gardening and built small, wooden houses to rent for additional income. She did this for the next 18 years. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Bridget moved to her own land in 1884, sold the initial piece for $1,500 and built a commercial building on another part. She rented out storerooms on the first floor and lived with her family on the second. The neighborhood developed quickly. And by the late 1800’s Biddy was the wealthiest African American woman in L.A. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Bridget didn't just sit on her money. She made sure to uplift others by starting a travel’s aid center and an elementary school for Black children. In 1872, she was instrumental in founding the city’s First African Methodist Episcopal church, the first Black church in L.A. She donated the land where the church was built. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ On January 15, 1891, Bridget "Biddy" Mason passed away and had amassed a fortune of $300,000. bablackhistory

Abc, Children, and Church: Maryland Church May Shut Down After City Fines Them $12K for Helping the Homeless Posted by Jay Syrmopoulos ca Patapsco FREETHOUGHTPROJECT Dundalk, MD The Patapsco United Methodist Church faces a fine of $12,000 for offering a safe haven for the homeless after a disgruntled neighbor decided that the church's helping hand to the homeless was hurting his business <p><a href="https://libertybill.tumblr.com/post/154428453172/afpe-from" class="tumblr_blog">libertybill</a>:</p><blockquote> <p><a href="http://theun--sj.tumblr.com/post/154428376848/from" class="tumblr_blog">theun–sj</a>:</p> <blockquote> <p><a href="http://afpe.tumblr.com/post/154425493019/from" class="tumblr_blog">afpe</a>:</p> <blockquote>From: <a href="http://www.dcclothesline.com/2016/12/07/maryland-church-may-shut-down-after-city-fines-them-12k-for-helping-the-homeless/">http://www.dcclothesline.com/2016/12/07/maryland-church-may-shut-down-after-city-fines-them-12k-for-helping-the-homeless/</a> <p> ““I showed up Wednesday morning to find a citation on the door that said we’re going to be fined $12,000 and have a court date because we have unhoused homeless people sleeping outside the church at night,” Reverend Katie Grover of the Patapsco United Methodist Church told ABC 2. </p> <p> The church has a court date scheduled for December 21 for the code violation, which entails homeless men, women and children sleeping outside the church doors because they feel safe there and have nowhere else to go. </p> <p> The a citation received by the church was for operating a “non-permitted rooming and boarding house,” but Grover pushed back against that notion stating, “They’re not paying me rent or paying us rent to board here, so I don’t know how that is defined.” </p> <p> After speaking with the code enforcement office, Reverend Grover said that if the church complies then the fine would be dismissed. If the church is forced to pay the fine there is a good chance they would no longer be able to continue a program to feed the poor – with a chance the church may need to shut down altogether. </p> <p> Grover was clear that she feels it’s the church’s duty to be a safe haven for all people. </p> <p> “We feel we here as a church that it’s scriptural mandate that’s it an imperative to care for the least, the last, the lost, the poor, the hungry,” she said. </p> <p> But Chester Bartko, owner of a produce stand next door, says the church’s actions are hurting his business. </p> <p> “We have a greenhouse and we sell flowers and shrubbery, and the homeless started camping right next to our retail sales area,” says Bartko. </p> <p> He alleges that the homeless killed one of his trees, by urinating on it, so he called the county to complain. </p> <p> “They dump gallons of urine on it,” Bartko said. </p> <p> “I want them moved out of here,” he continued. “The county and state has facilities for homeless people. They shouldn’t be here living like this.” </p> <p> And while Bartko is right that people shouldn’t be living like this, his actions do nothing to alleviate the problem and only serve to exacerbate an already tenuous situation for those living on the street — by relying on state force.” Honestly, I could post the entire article because it just gets worse and worse but instead you should go read it. </p> <p> Frankly, I’m disgusted that the only time the state desides to step in to stuff churches are doing are when they’re actually doing something GOOD. </p> <p> Phone Number To The Church (perhaps you can ask them how to donate to them to help fight their case and even provide proper lodging for the homeless) (410)-288-5488 </p> <p> City Council: (410)-396-4804 </p> <p> I attempted to find the phone number Chester Bartko and his business, but I only found his personal information (home address and stuff) so I can’t give you any of that but if anyone has the ability to go on google maps, find his stand next to the church, thus being able to find the name and being able to find the phone number, please add it onto this post if you do. </p> <p> This isn’t ok. </p> </blockquote> But without government, who will destroy churches for helping the poor eh, <a class="tumblelog" href="https://tmblr.co/mIiX85InXZ_5gFO1XlH6zKA">@libertybill</a> </blockquote> <p>Giving shelter to the homeless? We can’t have that kind of unbridled free market activity? <br/></p> </blockquote>
