What great quotes, Herky! And your cautions are well-stated. I think, as Christians, we need to pray and think about just where we will draw the line - and what we will do when we reach it.

I'm sorry I didn't FFQF today, but I was led in a little different direction, from the Bill of Rights to the Declaration of Independence - the start of a series, no less. :)

Happy FFQF! Have a blessed weekend, my friend.

Hello Jean. Thanks for reading and leaving your comment.

Yes, you are right. Even we Christians should learn to stop talking and start praying.

It's alright that you didn't participate today. Considering that I forgot to do WW (crazy busy! wah!), I don't think you owe me any apology.

But your post sounds great. I'm going to check it out!

Happy FFQF! And you too have a great weekend!

I have to admit that I've become addicted to your Friday posts... there's enough food for thought to last for a week! And the quotes! Marvelous.

I agree on the Second Amendment rights, and on your statement of Christian duty. I think there is all too often talking to those who can't do anything about a situation, and ignoring the ONE who can! Prayer leads to miracles.

So, keep up the great work... I'm waiting for next Friday!

Nothing shy of brilliant! Great post and magnificent quotes. I almost used Thomas Paine's words; yet, at WordPress we are really limited on space.

Sir, you may continue to repeat yourselves as many times as you like! What you are repeating NEEDS to be heard over and over again by most Americans.

Finally your ability to connect Scripture with the Constitution and/or the Founders remains spectacular!

Outstanding post. I apologize that I didn't get anything published today. I hope to remit a tardy post this weekend.

Hello all. Thanks for your reading, and leaving such kind words.

Mike -- Thank you! I am glad you enjoy it so much. You know, you are welcome to participate yourself any time, if you so desire. There are not many participants right now, and it would be wonderful to have you join us. Participating in the meme is very simple. All it requires, You can find more instructions here.

JP -- Thanks for your kind words. I am honored. I am off to see your post for this week!

Cato -- I understand about not being able to participate. It's alright. I hope you can still do it this weekend.

Happy FFQF!

As long as Americans are fat and happy, there will seldom be a serious concern for how government is run. When a violent revolution does finally occur in the U.S., it will be because things got too bad for too many people. Until then, we don't need guns as long as there's plenty of fried food and reality TV.

And that ends my sarcastic rant.

Hello Steve. Welcome to my blog! Thanks for reading and leaving your comment.

Oh, I completely understand your statement! Our Founders warned us not to get so caught up in those things, but to be virtuous, industrious, frugal, and alert.

I guess we are just another example (among the many throughout the history of human civilization) that is paying the price for not heeding the wise advice of our forefathers.

Your history blog looks fantastic! I'm sure I'll be coming back often.
