To wake up to morning news for this day. To know and understand they Vatican's position that Israel doesn't have a Biblical right to its land, there is no longer a Chosen People, and etcetera, and how about the gathering of wiccans in Oklahoma. The TV got some footage of it. Also, Tony Blair's sister in law now converted to Islam. On and on it goes. And we know it will be getting even worse.By the way, I wrote to the Vatican, and I wrote to PM Netanyahu. I would encourage you all to pray for Israel and to pray for us here as it appears that as followers of Christ, we are considered non-relevant, and almost useless to society if you listen to MSNBC, ABC, CBS, CNBC and NBC and of course, PBS or NPR.Patty Hayes
