Sickening

One week before the most solemn day in the Christian year, the city of Davenport, Iowa removed Good Friday from its municipal calendar, setting off a storm of complaints from Christians and union members whose contracts give them that day off.

Good Friday becomes Spring Holiday on Davenport's calendar.Taking a recommendation by the Davenport Civil Rights Commission to change the holiday's name to something more ecumenical, City Administrator Craig Malin sent a memo to municipal employees announcing Good Friday would officially be known as "Spring Holiday."

"My phone has been ringing off the hook since Saturday," said city council alderman Bill Edmond. "People are genuinely upset because this is nothing but political correctness run amok."

Edmond said the city administrator made the change unilaterally and did not bring it to the council for a vote, a requirement for a change in policy.

I think this type of thing comes about because we are not speaking out in numbers. The loudest voice gets his way. We need to speak out where it counts maybe? Altho we are warned that these things would happen in the bible so yes, it is just one more sign of the times. Did anyone hear of this so called christian milita group that was just busted? I dont think we need that kind of thing either, and will post a separate post on that so we are informed as to what is going on. Another sign of the times maybe?

I think the only thing we can do is when we see things like this is to make our voices heard. Write letters to your local newspaper, make calls to specific people to make sure that not only are people in this town effected but others who may live far away are also effected.

I tell you what, we Christians need to get our armor of God on and keep it on and stand up for Christ and spread the gospel where we can. End times seems closer and closer.

Satan may think he's won a few battles here but nothing can take away the truth of the gospel, nothing can take away the sacrifice our Savior made for us. He cannot cancel out the cross and all it means no matter how hard he might try! The devil may be powerful but our God is more powerful. We need to stand firm in our faith, go where God calls us and pray. Prayer is powerful. Let's keep praying for each other, the lost, and our country and it's leaders.
Let's keep spreading the good news of the Easter message and celebrate our risen Christ!
