No Limits and an $81,000 Shakedown/Settlement All In The Name Of God!Posted Sunday, September 4, 2011, at 4:41 PM
Jesus said, "Father, forgive these people, because they don't know what they are doing." And the soldiers gambled for his clothes by throwing dice. Luke 23:34
A City Attorney that did not know the law.
A City Council that did not know the law but should have been better informed by their attorney.
A "church" that saw an opportunity and ran with it.
A former mayor who has always been about what is good for him and "satisfaction" at any cost but all in the name of "community" (can you say oppurtunist?).
And last but not least---the $81,000 shakedown...by a "CHURCH"---but all in the name of God (so it is all good or is that God?).
I am Jewish. I am not exactly an "expert" on religion but I was always told the being "a good Christian" means that you embrace forgiveness, tolerance and the flaws of humanity. LOVE THY NEIGHBOR!!
What kind of "church" comes into a town and holds a community hostage over some obscure law? Way to engratiate your way into a community. Then add to the mix that the former Mayor of Mountain Home aided and abetted these folks! Has all the fixings of a great Sunday night CBS movie.
The really sad part in all of this is that this "church" plans to stay in this community after systematicaly and in a very calculating manner extorting $81,000 from this community. How very Christian of you pastor, sir.
What a fine example you shall be for the youth of this community. What a fine example you will be to the "broken" of this community who seek your gospel! What a fine lesson of tolerance for your fellow man pastor, sir. What a fine example of LOVE THY NEIGHBOR!
The fine people of Mountain Home were ripe for the picking and the God fearing pastor received a message from God I am sure that told him he needed to lead by example. What a fine example indeed. Well done pator, sir. Jesse Jackson could not have done it better!
I find this story a sad one but you have taught us all a very valuable lesson in this community pastor, sir. Never trust the smooth talking guy in the cheap suit who professes "trust me in the name of God I am here to help" and then speeds off in his Lincoln or Caddy to the farthest attorney office.
This is a fairly warm community but these acts will certainly set us back a bit. I pray that the community will remember your lesson pator, sir and welcome you into this community with the same warmth you have shown those of us who pay taxes.
I am attempting now to figure out where to place my strip club (aka gentleman's club) in an effort to welcome you to my community. Yet more souls for you to save! May God be with you pator, sir and all of your flock. Welcome to Mountain Home.
"Intelligence plus character--that is the goal of true education. The complete education gives one not only power of concentration, but worthy objectives upon which to concentrate... If we are not careful, our colleges will produce a group of close-minded, unscientific, illogical propagandists, consumed with immoral acts. Be careful, "brethren!" Be careful, teachers!

I have lived in Mountain Home for over 11 years now. I love to be outdoors in wide open spaces (as long as it does not involve camping...in a tent and an out house). I dislike Government waste/abuse of tax dollars and "sky is the limit" spending by those that we elect to represent "us." I value free speech when what is stated is factual (as opposed to lies, gossip and un-truths). I love the Chicago White Sox (I never said I was perfect) and the Broncos are okay too! I am 38 years old and married to a guy who is active duty USAF (and a Cubs fan...he is the "perfect" one). I am anti-nuclear and against further desecration of our planet with waste that we can do little to nothing with. If you dislike blunt, this is not the blog for you. Enjoy!
