MAN, oh, man!

They won't invite Pastor Joe to the Kansas State Legislature again!

They invited Pastor Joe Wright of Wichita's Central Christian Church to deliver the invocation -- and he told God on them!

No sooner had their guest chaplain concluded his prayer than three Democrats in the state Legislature were on their feet at microphones protesting, "He can't talk like that to us!" Rep. Delbert Gross considered the invocation, gross, calling it "divisive," "sanctimonious" and "overbearing."

What in the world did Pastor Joe say in Topeka that incited the righteous wrath of three Democrats from Hays and Kansas City?

I've secured the entire text of the invocation so you can evaluate it:

"Heavenly Father, we come before you today to ask Your forgiveness and to seek Your direction and guidance.  We know Your word says, 'Woe to those who call evil good,' but that is exactly what we have done. We have lost our spiritual equilibrium and inverted our values.

We confess that we have ridiculed the absolute truth of Your word in the name of moral pluralism.

We have worshipped other gods and called it 'multiculturalism.'

We have endorsed perversion and called it 'an alternative lifestyle.'

We have exploited the poor and called it 'a lottery.'

We have neglected the needy and called it 'self-preservation.'

We have rewarded laziness and called it 'welfare.'

In the name of 'choice,' we have killed our unborn.

In the name of 'right to life,' we have killed abortionists.

We have neglected to discipline our children and called it 'building esteem.'

We have abused power and called it 'political savvy.'

We've coveted our neighbors' possessions and called it 'taxes.'

We've polluted the air with profanity and pornography and called it 'freedom of expression.'

We've ridiculed the time-honored values of our forefathers and called it 'enlightenment.'

Search us, oh God, and know our hearts today.  Try us, and show us any wicked in us. Cleanse us from every sin, and set us free.

Guide and bless these men and women who have been sent here by the people of Kansas and who have been ordained by You to govern this great state.  Grant them Your wisdom to rule, and may their decisions direct us to the center of Your will.

I ask it in the name of your son, the living Savior,  Jesus Christ.

Amen." - Check out the Immigration by the Numbers Video

Three questions:


Where did I come from?


Why am I here? and


Where am I going

after this life?

"One man awake, awakens another.

The second awakens

his next door brother.


The three awake can rouse a town,

By turning the whole place

upside down.


The many awake can make such a fuss,

It finally awakens the rest of us.

One man up with dawn in his eyes,

Surely then multiplies."
