THE GOVERNMENT HATES GOD
Why we must refuse federal funds
Here is a another pathetic story of government officials gone wild. Georgia seniors receive meals at a senior center, most of the cost is met with Federal funds so now they are prohibited from offering prayers of thanksgiving to the God who actually provides all things to all men.
It wont stop there. yet another reason to reject federal funds at the local level.
PORT WENTWORTH, Ga. — Preston Blackwelder proudly showed off a painting of his grandmother that had hung next to the front door of his Port Wentworth home.She was the woman who led him to God, Blackwelder said Friday.And with that firm religious footing, Blackwelder said it would be preposterous to stop praying before meals at Port Wentworth’s Ed Young Senior Citizens Center near Savannah because of a federal guideline.”She would say pray anyway,” Blackwelder said of his grandmother. “She’d say don’t listen.”But Senior Citizens Inc. officials said Friday the meals they are contracted by the city to provide to Ed Young visitors are mostly covered with federal money, which ushers in the burden of separating church and state.On Thursday, the usual open prayer before meals at the center was traded in for a moment of silence.The dilemma is being hashed out by the Port Wentworth city attorney, said Mayor Glenn “Pig” Jones.
