Franklin Graham: America’s New Enemies are “Progressives and Godless Secularism”
Graham reported on his latest Decision America Tour prayer rally in Boston on Tuesday, which he said on Facebook was attended by over 3,000 people on the Capitol grounds. Graham said that he and the attendees prayed for God’s forgiveness and for the healing of America, as he also encouraged Christians to run for office and vote in the coming elections.
In an earlier post, he reflected that Boston is known as the “cradle of liberty” due to its historical connections to the The American Revolutionary War.
“In 1775, Paul Revere’s famed signal lanterns hung from the Old North Church steeple to warn that the enemy was coming. I’m not hanging lanterns, but I am going state to state warning the people of our nation about the enemy,” Graham wrote.
“The enemy is not the British today, but godless secularism and people who call themselves progressives who are undermining the morals and the God-given biblical foundation that our Founding Fathers gave this nation. These foundations are under attack, and the election coming up is so critical for America’s future.”

4 pork chops (They can still be frozen.) OR 2-3 lbs. pork ribs
12 oz. bottle chili sauce
1 cup grape jelly
Grease the crockpot with oil cooking spray. Place the pork chops in the crockpot. In a bowl, mix the chili sauce and grape jelly. Pour the mixture on the pork chops. Cook on low for 6-8 hours (8 hours if frozen). These pork chops or ribs will fall of the bone! Super Yummy!
Four – Prep
A Millennium Primer was written to be a “summary” of the Old Farmer’s Almanacs from 1792 to 1999. The editor wanted it to be like a “suitcase you’ve packed for your journey into the next millennium.” It’s broken down into seven sections covering the human connection, health and food, self-reliance, animals, the sky, time and space and prediction. Here are some of the old sayings I found in the book — some interesting, some accurate, and some never proven to be true!
“When sheep collect and huddle, tomorrow will become a puddle.”
“St. Swithin’s Day (July 15) if thou dost rain, for 40 days it will remain.” (Not proven to be true.)
“Bats flying late in the evening foretell a fine next day.”
“Cows give more milk and the sea more fish when the wind’s from the west.”
“If a fowl roll in the sand, rain is at hand.”
“There’ll be one snow in the coming winter for every fog in August.”
The book also gives advice on using insects as thermometers. Grasshoppers are loudest at 95F, but can’t make noise below 62F. If you hear a house cricket, count how many times he chirps in 14 seconds and add 40 for the temperature where the cricket is. Ants don’t emerge from their dens unless it is 55F or above. Bees cluster outside their hive at 102F and inside at 57F. No noise from insects means it is 40F or below.
There are also tips on predicting the weather by the moon. Researchers are finding there is a correlation between the full moon, cloudiness, rainfall and thunderstorms. The full moon can raise the temperature of the lower four miles of the Earth’s atmosphere by a few hundredths of a degree – enough to affect the weather.

“Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that ye should follow his steps: who did no sin, neither was guile found in his mouth: who, when he was reviled, reviled not again; . . . but committed [himself] to him that judgeth righteously.”
I Peter 2:21-23 (KJV)
Status: Failed to Advance after 54-42 Senate Vote on 9/22/15
In September, the U.S. Senate voted 54-42 to advance the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act this week. Unfortunately, procedural rules required it to receive 60 votes to advance. See how your Senators voted and let them know what you think about their vote.
