In reply to Dick Ford's "Shariah Law" letter: this is why we should keep religion out of government.
Freedom of religion is our right to believe but the law is the law common to all regardless of religion. We have the law of one wife; though some religions you can have more (government only has to support one wife with benefits).
Murder is illegal, though by some religions you can kill those that do not believe. And no, I am not an atheist, I am a Christian and not all Christians interpret the Bible the same so keep the law the law, and religion in the churches, temples, tabernacles and home.
A friend wrote and asked me if I had heard of UN Agenda 21 and its policy of "Sustainable Development." He said, "You will be shocked and scared to death."
It turns out that UN Agenda 21 is a plan to achieve a "one world" government to be administered by the UN. No more individual nations with their individual populations as American, German, English, etc.
This will be and is being accomplished under different names such as cap and trade, smart growth, global warming, social justice, public/private partnerships and more.
The policy of sustainable development is quietly being carried out in local communities under names such as community visioning, historic preservation or orderly development. In many cases, city governments do not know or realize that they are actually enforcing international policy.
Actually, sustainable development is about the transformation of America.
The most frightening thing to me is that almost every community in our country is, today, unwittingly carrying out some of this Agenda 21 policy.
I do not have the space to elaborate on all the facets of the Agenda 21 policy. If you have a computer, go to UN Agenda 21. You will find all the information and more that will scare you and show you how insidiously our country is being taken away from us, with our help.
No drug has been so widely accepted worldwide was tobacco and tobacco products.
Yet, no drug has affected the human race worldwide as much as this single drug. It has affected every nation on earth, both financially and health-wise. It has caused more deaths and injury than all wars combined. No one has been left untouched by this drug.
The careless use of this product has caused the destruction of millions of homes and those that occupied them. Trillions of acres of forest have also been destroyed.
There is no correct way to figure the cost in lives and property from the use of this drug. Al nations must take a look at the cost to human life and property from its use.
Highlands County should move forward with its tobacco issue.
