    I don’t recall seeing a single article yesterday commemorating the Kennedy assassination.
    Even short term history is being forgotten…

    Wow, you’re right. My mother’s birthday was yesterday as well (I remembered), and it wasn’t brought up last night for the first time I can ever remember. It’s always been in the spirit of “That was a bummer of a 16th birthday surprise”. The enemy has done a fantastic job of distraction in the last year. Normal life, times and seasons are changing fast.

    55 years ago and the more time that passes, the more theories arise as to who killed the man or even as to whether he was shot from the front or the back… So much palace intrigue …
    His father had some character shortcomings… yet, i get a smile out of Roosevelt appointing the Irishman our ambassador to Great Britain…

    I’ll tell you why I think it matters…
    The was the singular event that changed the national disposition…our core attitude changed from optimism to suspicion.
    All the insane bull stuff that I read from conspiracy theorists had it’s genesis in Dallas, 1963…

    My doorbell chimed and there stood a delivery man, “the President has been shot!” We turned on my TV and he, his helper and i stood there speechless. ”
    It did indeed change all of us. The United States was not so united after all…
    Later i watched Oswald’s perp walk thru the Dallas police station’s hall and a short guy stepped out of the men gathered and shot Oswald – he grimaced and collapsed right in front of the news cameras. “They” told us that Ruby idolized Jackie Kennedy and this was his retaliation… ? ….
    Everything “they” told “us” was calculated to mollify the masses… It is no wonder that we don’t trust those running the show anymore.
    (my mother had a friend, retired FBI, who swore that Roosevelt couldn’t lie in state in an open coffin because he had committed suicide by shooting himself in the head…?.. never heard that anywhere else)
    It seems to me that every decade brings us closer to the chaos that will serve the anti christ’s move to total control… but that is just how it seems… to me ?

    So, a Calvary Chapel pastor just raped a couple women and murdered another woman when she refused to go along with his pervert demands.

  7. Michael says:

    Let’s be clear.
    He was a former pastor who hadn’t had a church in over a decade. I didn’t post it because I really don’t think it has anything to do with CC today.

    The thing that stood out to me was how David Fitzgerald (who is a current Calvary Chapel pastor) went out of his way to state biblically that this was out of character for Bruce and that the only reason he believes he did it is because there’s so much evidence. Clearly Fitzgerald didn’t know Bruce well enough to judge him accurately. Or maybe he’s just a terrible judge of people. But at any rate, instead of coming to quasi defense of a terrible person who did terrible things, maybe he should just express his condolences to the victims and their families and leave it at that.

    I meant “to state publically”. I really hate when I type the word I mean to type but then don’t catch it when autocorrect changes it to a completely different word.

  10. Michael says:

    I agree that the best public response would be a simple declaration of condolence.
    On the other hand, I recently had a good friend and co-worker commit murder…and it was out of character as I usually don’t comport with murderers as a rule.
    I still don’t get it…

    Personally, I’m glad there were no articles remembering Kennedy’s assassination. I was really kind of surprised that we made it 8 whole years without Obama being shot. And now Trump provokes so much anger and anxiety who knows what will happen to him. It seems good to me that nobody is bringing a presidential assassination forward as something to be thought about or discussed.

  12. j2theperson says:

    I understand that it would be quite shocking to have a friend or acquaintance commit such a heinous act. And I get that a natural reaction would be to think it came out of nowhere. But it’s the height of tackiness and rudeness to go say that publically to a newspaper vs just keeping your thoughts to private discussions with friends.

    I’m sorry that you have experienced a friend doing such a thing.

  13. Michael says:


    I agree and have said nothing locally outside of a very small circle.

    J2 @ 7:16… sobering observations…
