Letter to the Editor Tea party event will honor God and country

Posted: Friday, October 5, 2012 6:18 pm

Editor,

Our theme for the five TEA Parties since April 15, 2009, has been 2 Chronicles 7:14: “If my people who are called by my name shall humble them themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways then will I hear from Heaven and forgive their sin and will heal their land.”

    “I used to enjoy reading the comments made on this site but since some people are posting so much stuff on here and attacking each other I can't stand reading any more this will be my last time to read the comments.”

    A poster who admits they’re so narrow-minded they can’t stand to read the TRUTHS they HATE so much, isn’t that revealing?

    “Reply to TaP's post of 9:35 p.m. Oct 7:”

    “I want to thank you for confirming your broad support for the DNC 2012 platform.”
    The TRUTH is I never stated I support or do not support the DNC 2012 Platform, that’s a FALSE CONCLUSION you reached, because you started with a FALSE PREMISE, didn’t you Sharecropper?
    “That helps to know just where your stand on the issues.”
    Had you read my posts, you would know that I defend what those Liberal, Radical Founding Fathers wrote in the Constitution of the United States of America, isn’t that the Law of the United States of America, Sharecropper?
    “And, I agree with the premise that "power corrupts, and absolute power corrupts absolutely."

    Glad we agree on at least one thing, Sharecropper.

    “Perhaps you could comment on this scenario: What if Chick-fil-A proposed to build a restaurant in Dekalb or Cherokee County? Would you, David Rains, and the lawyers responsible for fully 30% of his campaign funds, in keeping with the Democrat tradition, oppose such a restaurant?”
    That’s typical of Republicans, they seem to want to always deal with hypotheticals, don’t they Sharecropper?
    “Would you (a)merely protest (b)try to run them off by intimidation, or (c) mount a robust legal challenge, questioning their very right to exist as a business?”

    When are you going to deal with reality Sharecropper?

    “As a corrollary to the question above, how would you expect the Tea Party to respond to such a restaurant proposal?”
    I have never been to a “Tea Party” gathering, but I’m sure they would do as the Koch Brothers who finance the “Tea Party” tells them to respond, isn’t that the correct answer Sharecropper?
    BTW, The Koch Brothers are tied as the Fourth Richest people in the United States of America, with each of them having $31 BILLION in Wealth and their so GREEDY, even with $62 BILLION of combined wealth, they still haven’t Sated their Insatiable lust for even More Billions of Dollars and More Power, but don’t let that deter you from spreading your False Accusations, as you have the opportunity Sharecropper.

    “Which response would best represent freedom?”

    Those who are familiar with what those Liberal, Radical Founding Fathers wrote in the Constitution of the United States of America, both of your presumed scenarios, would fall under the First Amendment to the U. S. Constitution, which allows those people to seek a redress of their Grievances, but since those you allow to do your thinking for you show their Disdain for that portion of the Constitution of the United States of America, you listen to them, rather than heeding what those Radical Founding Fathers wrote in the U. S. Constitution, don’t you Sharecropper?

    While you’re in the mood to speculate, what if the Mayan Calendar is correct and the world ends in December 2012, what then, Sharecropper?

    “I read Mary Ann Cole's invitation to the TEA Party event. Love her, hate her, or indifferent, her letter was without malice, and inclusive.”

    Whether you love her, or hate her, Mary Cole’s letter was inviting only Republicans to a Republican Political Rally, cloaked as an event of the Tea Party, and the TRUTH is the Koch Brothers who are tied as the FOURTH RICHEST persons in the United States of America, (at $31 BILLION each) on “FORBES” Magazine’s list of the Wealthiest people in the United States of America, and no matter what anybody tells you the “Tea Party” would never have been created, without the Koch Brothers financing the “Tea Party” to divert the attention of the American People from their Insatiable GREED for more Money and therefore More Power.
    As the old axiom truly states, “Power CORRUPTS, Absolute Power CORRUPTS Absolutely!”

    “Therefore, I don't believe she deserved TaP's condemnation.”
    The TRUTH only hurts when it should and the TRUTHS I posted, hit you and others right between their eyes, didn’t they Sharecropper?
    “TaP should refrain from lecturing others about a book he apparently knows little of, and believes even less.”

    If you were familiar with the teachings of the Bible and what 2 Chronicles 7:14: “If my people who are called by my name shall humble them themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways then will I hear from Heaven and forgive their sin and will heal their land.”

    The FACT is the Law of Moses was addressed to the Children of Israel, and there were few Children of Israel at the “Tea Party, Mary Cole’s letter referred to was there Sharecropper?

    Matter of FACT under the teachings of 2 Chronicles 7:14, the Gentiles, that mostly attended Mary Cole’s “Tea Party, were considered unclean, and you can read below how Christ referred to those Gentiles, in Matthew Chapter 6, verse beginning with verse 5.
    5. And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites are: for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.
    6. But thou when thou prayest, enter into your closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and they Father which seeth in secret will reward thee openly.
    7. But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen [Gentiles] do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking.

    The above is what Christ taught his followers before he died on the Cross, and initiated his teachings of Love, so Gentiles were referred to s heathen in the context of 2 Chronicles 7:14, weren’t they Sharecropper?
    “I suggest next time there is a TEA Party event, TaP should organize a little counter-protest. He could call his group something original, like NeverTaxedEnoughAlready, or simply "Democrat."
    Sharecropper, like those who emulate Joseph Goebbels who was Adolf Hitler’s Propaganda Minister, where he only allowed the German people to read in their Newspapers and hear on their Radio Stations, what Hitler wanted them to read and hear, and that’s exactly what Sharecropper, and his comrades are seeking to do, only allow what they believe to be read on this Forum, and that’s a sad commentary on those people who must not be aware of the atrocities Joseph Goebbels caused as the Propaganda Minister for Adolf Hitler, which caused the Holocaust, where Hitler murdered 6 Million Jews, and as Voltaire stated many years ago,
    Those who can make you believe absurdities can make you commit atrocities. Voltaire
    It’s evident Sharecropper and his comrades aren’t in agreement with what Voltaire states below, are they?
    I do not agree with what you have to say, but I'll defend to the death your right to say it. Voltaire
    Voltaire stated the following about the time of the birth of the United States and the Koch Brothers and their BILLIONAIRE comrades have honed it as their Religion haven’t they Sharecropper?
    Men use thought only as authority for their injustice, and employ speech only to conceal their thoughts. Voltaire


    “TaP could carry a little sign that says, "David Rains and I APPROVE the DNC 2012 platform of unrestricted abortion, "gay" "marriage," gun control, booing God--and more taxes. The TEA Party can go jump in the harbor."

    While Sharecropper and his comrades could carry large signs that say, We emulate the TYRNNICAL practices of Joseph Goebbels, the Propaganda Minister for Adolf Hitler, wouldn’t that be the TRUTH Sharecropper?

    I would not invite Roy Moore to speak at a dog funeral, much less a public gathering in which you are wanting to garner public support. Way to show America the ignorance in Alabama.

    “Others have been contacted including U.S. Rep. Robert Aderholt, who has provided us with U.S. Constitutions to distribute.”

    Is Congressman Aderholt being generous with TAX PAYERS Money when he provides the Tea Party and their guest with copies of the U. S. Constitution, or is he “wasting” Tax Payers money to further his CORRUPTED Political Agenda, Mary Anne Cole?
    “All candidates, national, state and local, are encouraged to attend and speak.”

    Isn’t it ironic that you list only Republican politicians to attend your Tea party, why was the Democrat Nominee for the Chief Justice of the Alabama Supreme Court not invited to speak at your “Tea Party,” Mary Anne Cole?
    After all Judge Vance hasn’t blasphemed the Alabama Constitution or the U. S. Constitution, as Judge Roy Moore did when he was the Chief Justice of the Alabama Supreme Court, yet you dishonor your Tea party, by inviting a person who has shown their HATE and DISDAIN for the Alabama Constitution and the U. S. Constitution, Judge Roy Moore, while not inviting his Democrat Opponent, what does that say about you and your Tea Party, Mary Anne Cole?

    The Children of God in 2 Chronicles 7:14 were called the Children of Israel are you seeking to make the claim that only the Children of Israel, are the only children of God today, if that’s what you are claiming, you make all of the teaching of Christ NULL and void, and in Fact there will be very few “Children of Israel” at your “Tea Party,” will there be Mary Anne Cole?
    Those who seek to further their CORRUPTED Political Agenda, with their own self-righteousness, Christ called them Hypocrites as he called the Publicans, didn’t he Mary Anne Cole?
