The Holy Grail is not a church anymore and it's their building

To The Daily Sun,

The Holy Grail is NOT a church anymore. It was SOLD and is now a restaurant which serves food and drink. Really good food and drink, too! That cross has not, nor ever will, cause the owners any "mystical" downfalls. Mr. Blake and HIS religious "meddling" is the issue. John Demakowski may call it "preaching," but I will call it bordering on harassment.

Mr. Blake has on NUMEROUS occasions entered the establishment with letters and "sermons" for the owners. If Mr. Blake is not there to eat, drink, work, or do maintenance, then he should not be IN the restaurant. The owners do not, nor should ever have to remove the cross because Mr. Blake finds it offensive. It is THEIR building and they may do as they wish with it. And if you consider me a "meddler," than I will continue. I don't oppose God, I oppose John and Mr. Blake for their pointing the "finger of God" at everyone they think needs it — even when they don't.

I will leave with this quote,"Going to church doesn't make you a Christian; anymore than standing in a garage makes you a car."

The 'Love Army' was reall an army of hate that inspired more hate

To The Daily Sun,

The misnamed "Women's March" on Jan. 21 was an enormous missed opportunity to help women, families, and our country. It was simply a leftist, anti-Trump, pro-abortion rally, with women fronting for the same old leftist anti-American groups. The rally was led by self-important people, who have terrified themselves with their irrational imaginings, trying to inspire terror, feelings of victimization, and anti-Trump activism.

Some attendees reported enjoying the rally, and everyone probably expected an uplifting, helpful, constructive event. But I suspect many women were disappointed, experiencing what the people saw from home: another far-left, radical, anti-Trump, anti-abortion rally put on by vulgar, partisan, violent, disrespectful, and irrational sounding people without a constructive message.

When I was a child, my mouth would have been washed with soap for speaking even a few of Ashley Judd's words. Vulgarity wasn't enough for Madonna who considered blowing up the White House. Speaker Donna Hylton, a great role model, went to prison for her part in the kidnapping, sodomizing, and murder of a gay man. Speaker Angela Davis, two-time Communist Party vice presidential candidate, wants the early release of the murderers of law enforcement officers.
Speakers expressed concern about Islamophobia, but I found none concerned about FGM and honor killings even in this country, or the execution of gays and oppression of women in Muslim countries.

Many speakers suggested that women are disrespected and abused. Perhaps they should abandon their "pussy" hats, vagina costumes, and outfits that suggest they shouldn't be taken seriously, and leave the liberal men they associate with.

I found no speakers who addressed the real problems that make success difficult for American females (and males), being forced to attend bad schools, policies that lead to broken families and single motherhood, lack of good jobs, crime, drugs, etc.

I understand that it's easier and more appealing to complain and tell people they're victims than to tell people the truth that their own behavior and choices are the biggest obstacles to their success.

Imagine the difference it would make in Americans' lives if we had school choice so each child got a good education, policies and behaviors so each child grows up in a two parent home, a growing economy providing good jobs for everyone, and a society that leads people to do the right things just because they are right.

The Women's March called itself a "Love Army," but it really was just an army that hates and inspires hate for its political opponents. The Women's March was a wasted opportunity because its objective was to gain political power, not to improve the lives of the American people.
