Drugs, Democrats, and Dismemberment..." Happy Labor Day!"

"Repent for the kingdom of God is at hand"Ö Jesus Christ ~

The annual Granite City, IL Labor Day parade was begun with an assault by auxiliary officer Dan Grayson physically grabbing and shoving Angela as she led the troops, approximately 50 proclaimers, into the enemyís camp to proclaim the truth of the abomination going on in this City of Slaughter, Jeremiah 19:5Ö everyday. This once great city known for its prosperous steel mill is now infamously set apart for its three main industries: drugs, democrats, and the dismemberment of unborn children.

The Jerry Lewis MDA Telethon was being televised raising money and public awareness of this debilitating and sometimes fatal disease for Jerryís kids, and proclaimers were raising the standard in Granite City, Illinois by bringing the battle to the streets by showing the truth and giving a strong rebuke for Godís kids. Usually, Labor Day celebrations indicate an end to summer heat but temperatures from the opposition were rising at this event..

God was looking for a few good men and women to help Him deliver His mail, and thatís exactly what we did. "Stop the Killing Granite City!" Brother David held a death toll sign from this past weekís carnage at Hope(less) abortion mill, the biggest in the Midwest, known for no parental consent and specializing in late-term murder of the preborn. "This is how many babies were killed this past week, what are you gonna do about it? Jesus wanted these babies to live." Sister Grace called out to the parade participants, "This is what you represent by being in this parade" as she held the picture of a fully developed baby whose body was held by a gloved hand and whose severed head was laying off to the side. ABORTION..God have mercy!

Approx. 13,104 lil American boys & girls have been murdered in the past year in Granite City, IL by the hands of homegrown terrorists. Can you hear their cries? Just like Abel, innocent blood cries out for vengeance in Granite City. Unfortunately, the 75 local churches just sing a lil louder, and the political leaders look the other way. Apathy is lethal. Silence kills.

Psalms 94:1-23. "Who will rise up against the wicked?" This weekend was a big celebration for this City of Slaughter. This was an opportunity of a lifetime to have nothing to do with evil, but to rather expose it, Ephesians 5:11. Granite City, IL was enjoying picnics and a large parade, while only two blocks down from the festivities, children are being dismembered and dying daily with a burial by sewer. This once great city was known for a steel mill, now, it's known for baby dumping at a deathmill.

A older woman on a float throwing beads yelled "Letís have fun today," a proclaimer replied, "Yeah, thatís what they said in the Nazi Holocaust, letís just sing a lil louder,". The woman retorted, "Weíll worry about that tomorrow!"

A young girl no more than 7 years old ran up to Brother David and yelled "shut up" then she spit on him and warned him "youíll be getting more than a butt whipping if you donít shut up!". And ran back to her smiling mother. Bro David replied, "Honey, Iíve been spit on before, Jesus has a plan for your life". Politicians looked in amazement as their names were called out for being supportive of the Kerry-Edwards bloody- choice team and the innocent blood on their hands. "Senator Haines, you canít be pro-choice and Catholic!"

We stood with the graphic signs and scriptures at strategic points along the parade route, as much as the Granite City gestappo agents, Sgt. Knight, Auxiliary Officer Dan Grayson, and Officer C. McLaren, tried to silence our message, it only brought more attention to the truth of abortion and the truth of Christian persecution. Itís fun following Jesus, until you see where Heís going. Proclaimers were ordered to stay up on the sidewalk and threatened with arrest if they stepped onto the street. Parade-goers were cursing, grabbing our signs, and running into the parade without so much as a glance from the three jack-booted thugs. There seemed to be an imbalance in the scales of justice, such is to be expected when you stand for Christ.

Granite City cheerleaders tried to stay focused on their chants until they saw Baby Malachi ripped to pieces hanging on a sign, "oooh!" they exclaimed. One older man on the Knights of Columbus float was overheard commenting to a lady next to him, "theyíre right!". We noticed most on this float hung their heads in shame.

Congressman Jerry Costello went out of his way to turn the corner and tell the proclaimers that heís pro-life. When confronted with Granite Cityís holocaust on the unborn the mandatory response from most Granitonians is, "Iím Catholic", like itís a badge of honor. But we all know thatís just being religious..so what are you doing? After all, it was the religious people that killed Jesus. One man walking in the parade looked at out sign which read "Repent, for the Kingdom of heaven is at hand" and the man replied, "Repent from what?" and laughed.

The shedding of innocent blood was the sin responsible for the enslavement and captivity of apostate Israel and Judah as well as the devastation of a number of communities and nations. In like manner, America is full of the blood of millions of pre-born children. Does enslavement await our nation as well? Ezekiel 22:3-4, 6-9 And say: "This is what the Sovereign Lord says: O city that brings on herself doom by shedding blood in her midst and defiles herself by making idols, you have become guilty because of the blood you have shed and have become defiled by the idols you have made. You have brought your days to a close, and the end of your years has come. Therefore I will make you an object of scorn to the nations and a laughingstock to all the countriesÖ"

When innocent blood speaks. God listens. The blood of murdered people will always cry out to God for vengeance until their murderers are properly held accountable or when the day of final justice comes upon all mankind, Genesis 4:10.
