Those Beautiful, Lit-up, Bejeweled ‘Christmas’ Trees

“I am a Jew, and every single one of my ancestors was Jewish.
And it does not bother me even a little bit when people call
those beautiful, lit-up, bejeweled trees ‘Christmas’ trees.
I don’t feel threatened. I don’t feel discriminated against.”

Benjamin Jeremy “Ben” Stein
Actor, Writer, Lawyer, Commentator,

Where One Stands in Times of Challenge & Controversy

This Blessing is Global!

“To hate a nationality,
to hate a location because of its people,
to hate someone
is:
– self-destructive (the acid of hatred is destroying you from the inside out),
– self-cursing (the hatred you’re verbalizing, expressing, acting out, demonstrating and
writing are magnetizing the negativity of the same and worse to happen to you, immediately or later),
– a demonstration of a lack of a measure of intelligence about the Human Family,
and
– a demonstration of a lack of knowledge about The Blessing of Genesis 12:3

~ Michelle ‘Chaella’ Boddie

Independence & Permanent Peace

“Violence as a way of achieving racial justice is both impractical and immoral.
I am not unmindful of the fact that violence often brings about momentary results.
Nations have frequently won their independence in battle.
But in spite of temporary victories, violence never brings permanent peace.”

~ Martin Luther King, Jr.,
Pastor, Activist & Humanitarian

The Starless Midnight of Racism & War

“I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war
that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality…
I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word.”

~ Martin Luther King, Jr.,
Pastor, Activist & Humanitarian

The Favor and Blessing on Your Life

“They are jealous of the favor and blessing on your life. Take it as a compliment.
They don’t talk about average people. They talk about exceptional people.
They don’t talk about people that aren’t doing anything.
They talk about people who are taking new ground;
people that are making a difference — people that stand out”
~ Joel Osteen,
Pastor of Lakewood Church, Motivational Speaker & Author
