I’m so glad so many of you made it! I was stuck with a cancelled flight in Los Angeles. We had a vigil with my church last night, and we encountered an enormous amount of support and gratitude from passersby (some of whom stopped and joined us). What a change from four years ago! My gratitude and prayers are with you.

it was such a blessing to be part of this event. I worshipped with the crowd at the New York Presby Church. What a fellowship we enjoyed there. And special thanks to the folks who made the wonderful beans & rice for dinner. Here’s what I wrote, sorta based on Rev. Warnock’s testimony:

The troops would like to thank you. Not the evil American troops, but the ones that chop the heads off their captives. The ones that blow up babies in the markets for the moon god Allah. They would like to send a warm thank you and an Allah Akbar. But, unfortunately, the United States Marine Corps is looking to destroy them so you “christians” for peace can go protest the United States Marine Corps.I refuse to worship at the altar of fear and dhimmitude. You guys hate America more than you love Jesus. He’s just convenient to hide behind.
