Watchwoman on the Wall

THE GOOD NEWS IS THAT WE’RE ONTO THEM AND WE’RE EXPOSING THEM!

 

Watchwoman:  Every time you hear, see or read the word “controversial” pay attention.  ( Click to the right to see it used  →  http://blog.beliefnet.com/watchwomanonthewall/?p=13326 ) It is 99.99% of the time used to describe something that is NOT at all controversial.  God has already ruled on it and He has declared absolutely that it is sin and will take men and women to hell.  That is NOT controversial.  It is a settled matter!  It is almost always about a man approved sin being widely committed and sanctioned, promulgated to adults by the apostate church, the anti-Christian government, the pig-pen-porn-prone-Hollyweird establishment and entertainment/indoctrination/brainwashing industry, all upheld, and pushed into the heads of public-government school children from kindergarten through college who are being taught daily to hate and reject decent morals of elders and the God of our Holy Bible (both the Torah and the King James Bible) by the National Education Association (NEA) and aided and abetted by the atheistic, anti-Christ, moral-less, anti-American, communist-controlled unions who in turn dictate the morays of the mainstream news media, including every venue; TV, magazines, Internet, books, and newspapers.  (Just a thought??? Have you ever heard the word “controversial” associated with Obamacare?  I don’t recall hearing that ever!)  ▬  Donna Calvin
