God is always timely Monumental offense (News; Brittany Pickering; August 28, 2013; Oklahoma Gazette) … That’s a false description of challenging God’s word. I am neither a pastor, priest, monk, Jewish or any of these things, but I am a man who has probably broken every law God has placed up this world. And it

Moore sends hate runnin’

Opposite a large crowd of Moore supporters, 10 Westboro protesters held signs that said, “God Hates Oklahoma,” “Mourn For Your Sins” and “Destruction Is Imminent.” According to Westboro’s website, the church members believe the tornadoes were “God’s wrath.” The Kansas church protesters had a permit to protest for 30 minutes at 2 p.m., but counter-protesters
