    The church reminds me of the Republican party who is still in denial about losing the election in November.

    Jim Liebelt - Conservative Commentary, Blog Articles

    "Seeking to highlight a phenomenon that has become so common that it's often overlooked by clergy, a new analysis of data about children of divorce reveals that kids raised in happy, intact marriages are twice as likely to worship later in life than children whose parents divorce amicably.

    Researchers say they hope the unprecedented project will awaken pastors to a common oversight contributing to the decline in mainline Christian denominations and religious affiliation in general."

    Why Heaven is straight up....don't you remember? All the church steeples point directly into the sky. The one thing they didn't understand was that every twelve hours up becomes down and down becomes up. The old flat earth concept doesn't work for much these days.

    Oh...and a Christian funeral buries the body facing east......that way they will be able to spot Jesus when the trumpet sounds and he comes floating in on a cloud. Then they can come ripping up out of that dirt and join him.

    Matthew 24:27: “For as the lightning comes from the east and flashes to the west, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be"

    1 Thessalonians

    4:16 "For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first"

    4:17 "Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord."

    Never heard that.

    I do know Muslims are buried facing Mecca, maybe for the same reasons.
