At a congressional prayer breakfast, after his colleagues spoke about the recent tsunami tragedy, Delay stood up and read this from the Bible:


A reading of the Gospel, in Matthew 7:21 through 27.

Not every one who says to me, "Lord, Lord," will enter the kingdom of heaven; but only the one who does the will of my Father in heaven.

Many will say to me on that day, "Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name? Did we not drive out demons in your name? Did we not do mighty deeds in your name?"

Then I will declare to them solemnly, "I never knew you: depart from me, you evil doers."

Everyone who listens to these words of mine, and acts on them, will be like a wise man, who built his house on a rock:

The rain fell, the floods came, and the winds blew, and buffeted the house, but it did not collapse; it has been set solidly on rock.

And everyone who listens to these words of mine, but does not act on them, will be like a fool who built his house on sand:

The rain fell, the floods came, and the winds blew, and buffeted the house, and it collapsed and was completely ruined.

Just in case you're having trouble believing Delay would be so ignorant.

Tom DeLay, in general, is pretty embarrassing. This is just another in a long line.

Cbus, what's your point?

Do you think those type of comments are appropriate from anyone, especially the Senate majority leader of the United States, after such a great tragedy?

I don't.

What's your problem Cbus? If you have something to say, say it. Why do you have to jump in with the snot nosed emoticons everytime RF posts something?

Luk 13:1 There were present at that season some that told him of the Galilaeans, whose blood Pilate had mingled with their sacrifices.
Luk 13:2 And Jesus answering said unto them, Suppose ye that these Galilaeans were sinners above all the Galilaeans, because they suffered such things?
Luk 13:3 I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish.
Luk 13:4 Or those eighteen, upon whom the tower in Siloam fell, and slew them, think ye that they were sinners above all men that dwelt in Jerusalem?
Luk 13:5 I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish.


Delay's out of line using those Scriptures there. The above are much more fitting for such a disastrous loss of human life.

The Christian response is to be heartbroken because there are hundreds of thousand souls who died without Jesus Christ as their Savior and Lord rather than cheering from the stands that judgment day came for so many.

Your own personal Cbus
Someone to hear your prayers
Someone who cares
Your own personal Cbus
Someone to hear your prayers
Someone who’s there

Feeling unknown
And you’re all alone
Flesh and bone
By the telephone
Lift up the receiver
He’ll make you a believer

Take second best
Put me to the test
Things on your chest
You need to confess
He will deliver
You know he's a forgiver

Reach out and touch faith
Reach out and touch faith

Your own personal Cbus...
