Al Green Sunday Morning Sermon:"A Change Is Gonna Come."

Impeaching Donald Trump; part of a real Christian God's plan, no?

Here's your Sunday Morning Sermon peeps, via the inimitable American church crooner and love-soother Al Green:
We kinda figured that most of our Weber County Forum readers probably skipped their formal LDS church services this morning, so's we'll suggest you just happily sing along. Although we confess that we don't know much about Mr. Green's personal personal politics, we'll nevertheless leap to the conclusion that Mr. Green's "Change is Gonna Come" message might have something to do with impeaching Donald Trump, which would be part of a real Christian God's plan, no?

Seems a mite creepy no?

Hey! here's a little something a mite scary, Weber County residents.

Read up and weep, peeps!

Weber County Forum Sunday Sermon: The Death of Christianity in the U.S.

Twisted Chistianity? Faustian Bargain?

"You might wonder if my condemnation is too harsh. It is not, for the Spirit of the Lord has convicted me to shout from the mountaintop how God’s precious children are being devoured by the hatred and bigotry of those who have positioned themselves as the voice of God in America."

Read up. Peeps.
"As a young man, I walked down the sawdust aisle at a Southern Baptist church and gave my heart to Jesus. Besides offering my broken heart, I also gave my mind to understanding God, and my arm to procuring God’s call for justice. I have always considered myself to be an evangelical, but I can no longer allow my name to be tarnished by that political party masquerading as Christian. Like many women and men of good will who still struggle to believe, but not in the evangelical political agenda, I too no longer want or wish to be associated with an ideology responsible for tearing humanity apart. But if you, dear reader, still cling to a hate-mongering ideology, may I humbly suggest you get saved."

Great Sunday rant, No?

As everyone knows, your blogmeister loves great rants, especially on Sunday mornings.
