There is a rank due to the United States, among nations, which will be withheld, if not absolutely lost, by the reputation of weakness. If we desire to avoid insult, we must be able to repel it; if we desire to secure peace, one of the most powerful instruments of our rising prosperity, it must be known that we are at all times ready for war.

Mexican Mayors' Mayhem

Well, No $#!^, Sherlock

According to a FoxNews story, a coalition of Mexican Mayors is blaming the rise in their country's violence and crime on the U.S. It turns out, we are deporting Mexican criminals, who are, among their other crimes, in our country illegally. We don't want their riff-raff, and they cry when we send them back, going so far as to ask us not to send them back.

The way I see it, all those who refuse to go through the process of being here legally should be sent back.

We got this in our POST OFFICE box this weekend. "So what?" you might ask. So, I repeat; it was in our POST OFFICE box...where we receive our mail. This is your tax dollars at "work" people.

Sixteenth Sunday after Pentecost

Luke 15:1-10, Ezekiel 34:11-24

In the name of the Father and of the + Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

"This man eats with sinners and tax collectors," His detractors cry. "This man, claiming to be holy, claiming to be sent from God in Heaven, claiming to be the Son of God, eats with the most vile and detestable and unholy lot on earth. How can one so holy deign to dwell among and associate with the unholy? It's unheard of. It's reprehensible. It's sacrilegious."

Fifteenth Sunday after Pentecost

Luke 14:25-35

In the name of the Father and of the + Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
If anyone comes to Me and does not hate his father and mother, wife and children, brothers and sisters, yes, and his own life also, he cannot be My disciple. And whoever does not bear his cross and come after Me cannot be My disciple.

And so, Jesus implores us to count the cost. Counting the cost is always a good idea, as Jesus explains. If you're going to build a tower, you're going to count the cost. You figure what the materials and labor is going to cost and balance that against your budget in order to insure that you have enough to finish to job. Otherwise, you'll be mocked as one who began a job you couldn't finish.
