There is an interesting phenomenon on Facebook, which seems to be a norm now. If you take a stand and post it, how dare anyone challenge you?  And if one does respond then tell the world that you love Jesus, who is your savior. Quote from the Bible by all means possible, and your self-righteousness will save your day. After all, you just quoted the Bible!

I have always found it offensive when people wrap themselves in the American flag, and declare themselves patriots, who do not do the patriotic thing, and that is to give public discourse a chance. Instead, with their Bible quoting, they go out and buy into a particular view totally, like sheep, rather than question everything.

I’d rather see a person who deeply believes in God keep it to himself, not preaching how holy he or she is, no one cares, no one really with an ounce of brains wants to know about. Religion is a man or woman’s personal relationship with God, and it should never be for public consumption. People who do that in my opinion are phonies, afraid that God will judge their own personal behavior, so off they go trying to make points with God. Sad.

And like the American flag wrappers, who take pride in the destructive power of war based on this country’s machinery and weapons, they overlook the destructive power it wields over children and innocents who suffer on both sides of the battlefield, forgetting that they send in sons and daughters to die, for what? They should try to put their Jesus loving proclamations to good use and pray for peace, Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of GOD!

  • Someone told me, "Joe's Blog is funny, take a look, you'll laugh!" I don't think what you wrote is funny! I make a comment of
    my opinion and get personally attacked..No intelligent, reasonable comeback! You called me a moron,a mental Midget?..You personally attack me for having an opinion..Your blog was about not being able to voice your own opinion! quoting you: "If you take a stand and post it, how dare anyone challenge you? And if one does respond then tell the world that you love Jesus"....Almost
    exactly what you just did! My dictionary calls that hypocrisy!Don't bother to insult me again no one will be reading it!

    You are a brave soul Anonymous. You give morons a bad name. Maybe there is some aid from the government you can get for that condition. Maybe a scripture to cover it?

  • But how can you write on someone else's blog? Wouldn't Joe have let us know it wasn't him?

  • You know what I love the most? The fact that you are all so consumed by how bad you look. The fact that I exposed you for the hypocrites that you are and the war-mongering morons you continue to be.

  • To anonymous at 3:29 not a post, a comment:in answer to this... "Sounds like the same one that wrote "idiot" comments on another Blogue back in June"..It was Joe's son Mike who posted a scathing comment to his father.because he was mad..I guess the Apple doesn't fall far from the tree, if you read Joe's comments on here.. I'm so glad that
    jesus loves me, but I'm a Jew..Shalom!

  • It says Joes son wrote the post, not the idiot comments that went on for days. (They didn't call Joe an idiot! The person who was citing "script by script" was called the idiot.) He wouldn't let up! Made a lot of references to "certain" types of people. disgraceful! Educate yourself and read the blog before you make comments. And as far as Joes apples, "the best ever plucked off the old apple tree!!" Good night!

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at 6:05 PM  

  • They were making reference to Joe's son, as the "apple" not falling far from the tree. Well, that's a great tree to be an apple from! So anonymous with the nasty comments, you haven't got a clue! Bless you all!
