Pray for #CelineDion after the death of her beloved husband.

This morning, I just happened (as if ANYTHING "just happens") to watch a clip from the "Touched by an Angel" TV series from 1998, where Andrew (who is the "angel of death" in the series) escorted two children to her dressing room. Aside from whether there really is a literal "angel of death" (the Bible really doesn't say), you might say that Andrew just visited her home again, and escorted the man she loved so dearly, René Angélil, into eternity, and we entrust his soul to a merciful God.

As the Bible commands, I "weep with those that weep". :'( Celine, embrace God's love. <3

When I was being briefed for ministry in #SanBernardino yesterday with the Harvest Christian Fellowship's Crisis Response Team, I was told to be cautious about answering the question "why would God allow this?" It was never raised by anyone I spoke with. But I did speak with a gentleman whose sister worked there but was out sick last Wednesday when the terrorist act occurred.

I'm reminded of a story of a man who came to work one Monday only to have a fellow employee accidentally drop a toolbox on his foot. The injury was so severe that he had to miss work the following day. He may well have asked why God allowed that to happen. Oh, I forgot to mention that his injury occurred on Monday, September 10, 2001 and he worked at the World Trade Center. Now I think he knows what God had in mind!

Fully automatic rifles, magazines removable without a tool, and magazines that hold more than 10 rounds are all illegal in California. Nothing that you can buy legally in California can be considered an "assault rifle", nor would any self respecting soldier take a California-legal rifle into combat. These two terrorists in #SanBernardino violated a huge number of EXISTING LAWS and I seriously doubt that proposed laws to further disarm LAW ABIDING citizens would have deterred them. As it was, they took advantage of the fact that the facility they targeted was a "gun free zone", ensuring that none of their victims would be able to defend themselves by shooting back.

Those who say only the police and military should have guns are misguided. The fact is that civilian concealed carry permit holders have a LOWER INCIDENCE of gun related crime than even POLICE OFFICERS! As William S. Burroughs wrote:

"After a shooting spree, they always want to take the guns away from the people who didn't do it. I sure as hell wouldn't want to live in a society where the only people allowed guns are the police and the military."

Our founding fathers agreed and codified our unalienable, God-given right to self defense in the Second Amendment in order to defend the Constitution itself "against all enemies, foreign and domestic". Those who violate the second amendment provision that those rights "shall not be abridged" have blood on their hands and will answer to Almighty God.

Even if you're not a ham radio operator, one or more of us could save your life during a disaster, IF we're allowed to install the antenna[e] needed and allowed by Federal law. Please read and consider signing this petition. The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) won't act without legislation from Congress.
