A Florida ministry that feeds the poor said a state agriculture department official told them they would not be allowed to receive USDA food unless they removed portraits of Christ, the Ten Commandments, a banner that read “Jesus is Lord” and stopping giving Bibles to the needy. “They told us they could no longer allow us to have any religious information where the USDA food is going to be,” said Kay Daly, executive director of the Christian Service Center. So why did the government have an issue with the religious group’s religious decorations? A spokesperson for the Florida Department of Agriculture

FTA: “We decided to eliminate the USDA food and we’re going to trust God to provide,” she told me. “If God can multiply fish and loaves for 10,000 people, he can certainly bring in food for our food pantry so we can continue to feed the hungry.”

Amen! God owns the cattle on a thousand hills. He will provide. And may the USDA official eat his words.

The idea of any entity accepting anything from the government is self-imprisonment . We should reject Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, highway money and all other federal blackmail schemes. We provinces that once were states, cannot ever regain our Constitutional status until we reject everything the Feds offer except for the 23 things the states told the feds to do for them in the Constitution.

I have something I want to tell the Feds to do for me but I can´t say it here.

I wonder if the Muslims were to set up a food program and get in on the Fed food dump whether they would be restricted from giving what they believe is spiritual comfort? I doubt seriously they would get anything but good press and Welfare Workers down at the center shaking hands and saying McCains version of the Muslim thank god, that they use as they kill people!

I´m not sure how one would define "public trust" ... but according to Wiki:

The No Religious Test Clause of the United States Constitution is found in Article VI, paragraph 3, and states that:

The Senators and Representatives before mentioned, and the Members of the several State Legislatures, and all executive and judicial Officers, both of the United States and of the several States, shall be bound by Oath or Affirmation, to support this Constitution; but no religious test shall ever be required as a qualification to any office or public trust under the United States.

The secular liberal progressive State everywhere wants to establish itself as the sole source of all charity, and remove all sources of private charity, especially the Christian Churches from their traditional role in this field. It even wants to take over the money collected by these same churches for charity by removing their tax exemptions.

In a new study, researchers found an increased risk of multiple sclerosis (MS) among women who have taken oral contraceptives. However, the findings do not mean women should stop using birth control, the researchers say. Utilizing membership data from Kaiser Permanente Southern California, researchers analyzed the health records of 305 women aged 14 to 48 who were diagnosed with MS or its precursor, clinically isolated syndrome (CIS), between 2008 and 2011. They looked at the women’s birth control use up to three years prior to the onset of MS symptoms. Overall, researchers found a 30 percent increased risk of developing

After President Barack Obama bowed to critics in November and allowed people with canceled health insurance policies to keep their coverage for another year, the White House quickly hit the spin cycle. In a telephone briefing with reporters that same day, senior administration officials said their “enforcement discretion” allowed them to tweak the Affordable Care Act to ensure that it would be implemented with minimal disruption. Previous administrations had done the same thing with complicated new laws, they said, and the slow-motion rollout of the sprawling health care law was sure to encounter more problems

It´s time to get the feds out of kids´ lunch boxes.

Solar power has won the global argument. Photovoltaic energy is already so cheap that it competes with oil, diesel and liquefied natural gas in much of Asia without subsidies. Roughly 29pc of electricity capacity added in America last year came from solar, rising to 100pc even in Massachusetts and Vermont.[Snip] The technology is improving so fast--helped by the US military--that it has achieved a virtous circle.
