Drugs, Democrats, and Dismemberment..."
Happy Labor Day!"
"Repent for the kingdom of God is at hand"Ö Jesus
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
Psalms 94:1-23. "Who will rise up against the wicked?"
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
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.
