Man Sentenced to Prison for Standing on a Sidewalk, Informing People of Their Rights

The Free Thought Project – by John Vibes

Big Rapids, MI — A former pastor will serve time in jail for a conviction of “jury tampering,” after he was arrested and charged with a felony for handing out jury information pamphlets outside of a courthouse.

Keith Wood is innocent. He was merely attempting to educate his neighbors about their rights on a jury, which should be protected free speech. However, courts are intent on using their power to hide the full scope of the jurors’ responsibility and they will apparently go to great lengths to do so — including throwing an entirely innocent man in prison.   Continue reading

Who is the God of the Bible?

The New Testament is now being read and taught as an abstract document which saves no one and condemns man to a life of serving Judaism and the lusts of his own flesh. You cannot believe what you refused to take literally or to understand. You condemn yourself to eternal damnation if you do not believe the gospel of Jesus Christ. You cannot believe what you either refuse to read or relegate that which you read in the same place in your mind as one of Picasso’s junk works of art.   Continue reading

I looked at her, and said, “I’m interested in buying a refrigerator.”

She didn’t quite know how to respond.   Continue reading

Dallas Morning News – by James Raglan
