Leaders Speak Out on Supreme Court Same-Sex Marriage Ruling | Christian Activities





While most people assumed the liberal-leaning Supreme Court would make the decision to redefine the institution of marriage to accommodate homosexual couples, it is a decision that caused many leaders to voice their dissent.

Several of the opposing Chief Justices felt their circumvented and reinvented the Constitution in making their ruling and some pointed to the history or diverse cutures where for thousands of years, marriage has been between a man and a woman.

Other leaders felt the ruling unconstitutionally took the decision out of the American people's hands and put more power into the courts.

Happy Father's Day 2015


My father and me

 My father would be 105 if he were alive today. Although he has been gone for many year, and I am now a woman of 61, I still miss him very much. If you still have your dad, make peace, make up, and tell him you love him.

Happy Father's Day!


Father's Day Haiku

How everlasting
Are the bonds between fathers
And their little girls.

Father's Day Poems

Col. William Allen Darden

For Father's Day, why not give your father the gift of appreciation?

This collection of Father's Day poetry was written in honor of father's everywhere, but most especially, for my own father.

Father's Day Acrostic

Fathers are not appreciated
As much as they should be.
They toil at work and work at home
Hoping to meet out needs,
Each day beings new occasions --
Reasons for appreciation,
Showing thanks for his deeds.

Dad, I wish I could tell you this,
As I sit with m y memories --
You are so very dearly missed.

For Father's Day

For all the times I never told you thank you,
For all the times I ignored what you said,
For all the years I acted so indifferent,
I want to say how much I thank you, Dad.

These are the things I should have often told you,
But usually they were left unsaid;
Now these are words that weigh heavy upon me -
How much I want to say, I love you, Dad.

For all the times you reached and I rebuffed you,
For all the years I scoffed at things you said,
I want to say how much I miss my father,
And how I wish I could tell you now, Dad.
