It's all good i mean were all free to do as we wish right?

but why was the road blessed in the first place?

Lakeland is half way between Orlando and Tampa, I can't remember the names, but there was one heck of a gang war going on. Lakeland had grew up, and they were fighting over who was going to get to sale there drugs ware kinda crap. Somthing like 12-14 yong men got killed, a church in poke county was able to get them to make peace after a vary bloody drive by at this spot, so as part of the PEACE process both gangs gathered at the spot and a prayed for there lost friends and the area was blessed. It is kind of like a safe zone now. If you wanna be a atheist that's fine, but can't you stop working ageist the "little bit" of good the church is doing?

WOW. Talk about people with too much time on their hands. Life must be pretty good, indeed, when you can spend your time and effort in this manner. What's next tiny dogs in purses?

Lol, "unholy water"? If a priest blesses holy water, who blesses unholy water?

No one said a darn thing about being a better person than some one. Maybe i am wrong here, but i think it is better for the hole area when we don't have a drug/gang war going on.

Why is it in an Australian newspaper?

The whole thing is daft.

Quote:
Polk Under Prayer director Richard Geringswald said his group's blessings - which also include Bible verses written on bricks buried alongside Interstate 4 - were intended to make one group feel unwelcome.

"Mainly the drug crowd, that they would be dissuaded to come in to the county," he said.


Good luck with that. I'm sure a few buried bricks and some oil will wipe that problem right out.

Good point, I mean it was nothing more than a "look at me look at me" deal anyways. Just hope the gang war is over, and wish people would let things be, after all who cares what your faith is, we can all agree ending a gang war is a good thing.

I've read several stories about the blessing issue, but have not seen this mentioned. Do you have a source? As a matter of fact, your post is the only one that seems to come up saying anything about that.

From one of the Polk Under Prayer guys in why it was blessed:

(link)

Quote:

“It’s objective is to place Holy Angels at all roads that lead into or out of Polk County,” the blog post said. “A strip of anointed oil has been placed over all lanes of highway at the county line and a prayer has been given at each location asking God to have angels inspect every vehicle that travels into or out of this county and to bring under conviction to those who seek evil and we asked God to bring them to a state of submission and repentance.”

The post added, “If they will not submit to God’s way of living, then the prayer is to have them incarcerated or removed from the county.”


Sounds like religious nutbaggery having nothing to do with gang wars...

So to sum up. Blessing the road does no harm, but also does no good - and has the effect of pissing people off that think you should be out working a job while you are blessing roads.

I just unblessed all those roads right here from the comfort of my home by casting a great big old nonbeliever spell from my bag of atheist secret powders and magic charms. All the spells contain Eye of Newt Gingrich as a primary ingredient. Muhahahaha! Muhahahahahaha! Spooky.

That's way scarier than gang violence.
