Police Stop Prayers Outside White House
World Net Daily ^ | Sep 30 2012 | Dave Tombers

Posted on 09/30/2012 8:46:20 PM PDT by Old Sarge

Dozens of people have already been arrested over the weekend for kneeling and praying in front of the White House.

ActsFive29, a group of like-minded, pro-life defenders launched the D.C. prayer rally knowing their members could indeed be arrested, but asserting it’s worth it, because, “The future of religious freedom in America is at risk.”

Wonder if they prayed on rugs with a lump of clay on their foreheads (Christian prayers naturally) if this would have happened?

Maybe so, but I have searched three times for that thread title, and THIS is the only one that shows up...

Swindell told WND that just four years ago she was arrested and deported from communist China for standing up for religious freedom there.

“I stood in Tiananmen Square holding a banner that said, ‘Jesus Christ is King’ and was arrested,” Swindell said. “I never imagined that just four years later I’d be standing in front of the White House risking the very same thing.”

She told WND that she intended to hold the same banner declaring “Jesus Christ is King” in front of the White House Sunday afternoon, and fully expected to be arrested for it.

During the height of the Lewinsky scandal I flew to DC for the weekend and paraded in front of the WH with a poster sized eviction notice that gave them 30 days to vacate. I wasn’t arrested. How could they arrest these people?

Muslims can’t stand any reference to “Christ being King”, or someone actually praying to the God of Israel...

“How could they arrest these people?”

I’ve heard they’re really jumpy about people in front of the White House after 9-11. When Bill Clinton was campaigning for President in Louisville in the Fall of 92, I stood at the back of his downtown appearance with others holding Pro-Life signs. We weren’t chanting or blocking anyone’s view. We were allowed to stay there. I bet we would be arrested or made to leave today. When a crazy older woman saw us, she charged at one of the older ladies in our group but fell down before she could tackle the woman in our group. She then got up and went away. You should have seen the angry look on her face when she charged, it was like she was demon possessed.

Daydreaming about +1,000,000 people praying in front of the White House...jails full...national guard breaking heads...gays spitting on the kneeling people in prayer... muslim protesters crying racism and Jihad... and all across America people looking at their TVs and finally waking up.

You are a super hero!

I heard you one on the radio talking to Larry Elder about the rapist 'toon during the 'rat convention 2 or 3 weeks ago.

The first time I heard you on the radio was when you had called in to talk to Ray Bream on 870 KRLA.

I'm glad some of the ol' time FReepers are still active.....

Far too many have wandered away from FR for various reasons, much to the detriment of this site.

People who look at TV will not wake up. You have to turn it off to perceive reality.

It’s like showing a Cross made of nickel to a vampire, actually.

It could be considered a terrorist act, in that the buildings might actually collapse.

...but it is okay for a mass of Muslims to go into the street, blocking traffic , to bow to Satan, while farting at God.

"You know how many Muslims are in this area? On Friday the street used to be packed, and we had a pass from the police to block the streets," said Saad Madaha, 32, a consultant originally from Ghana who prays at Masjid Manhattan in a narrow basement beneath a night club.

Officials at apartment buildings on the Upper West Side say illegally parked cabbies are creating a safety hazard.outside an Muslims Islamic Center

Those cabs have no drivers: they are inside, at prayers...5 times a day.

It’s getting hard to tell the difference between the white house and the Temple Mount these days , the muslims won’t let you pray at either.

THIS IS NOT MY AMERICA
These people need to file a law suit

Face East

Throw down a rug

get down on your honches ass high

pray....they won’t be able to tell if you are praying to God or that fake Baal wannabe, Allah.

That’s it! By Skippy!

We take their ritual, co-opt it and pray to our God!

No one will know the difference and the government will be “too afraid” to hurt anyone’s feelings....

Sum bitch!

never occurred to me why I can’t catch a cab at certain times of day.

Sometimes I just stand around wondering if there are any cabs and now I know where they go!

Now I can plan accordingly. I can walk, take the subway or if I am going to be running around town just rent a limo from CLS.

In general, the cabs will be abandoned during the following times...
from: http://www.jgiesen.de/astro/PrayerTimes/index.html

Islam Prayer Times
For Muslims it is obligatory to perform five prayers throughout the day and the night.
These are: Fajr, Dhuhr, Asr, Maghrib, Isha.
The times of the prayer are determined by the position of the sun.

1.Fajr Time
Dawn Prayer (before sunrise)
Beginning time for morning prayers

Angle of the sun under the horizon
Islamic Society of North America: 15°
University Of Karachi, Muslim World League: 18°
Umm Al-Qura University: 19°

Sunrise Shuruq
end time for morning prayers

2.Dhuhr, Zhuhr Noon Prayer

The time of Zuhr starts when sun passes its zenith.

3.Asr Afternoon Prayer

begins when the length of the shadow of a vertical rod
Hanafi: is equal to its shadow at noon plus twice the length of the rod.
Shafi: is equal to the length of the rod plus its shadow at noon.
It ends about 10 minutes before sunset.

4.Maghrib Sunset Prayer

begins immediately after sunset

5.Isha Evening (Night) Prayer

begins, at moderate latitudes, when the sky is completely dark and ends just before the Dawn Prayer.
Angle of the sun under the horizon
Islamic Society of North America: 15°
Muslim World League: 17°
University Of Karachi: 18°
Umm Al-Qura University: 90 minutes after the Sunset

Specific times: several Muslim sites give exact details for any location; an example: http://www.islamicfinder.org/ http://www.islamicfinder.org/cityPrayer.php?country=USA

See also: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Salah

OTOH, see also:: Matthew 6:7 And in praying do not heap up empty phrases [KJV: “vain repetitions”] as the Gentiles [KJV: “heathen”] do; for they think that they will be heard for their many words.

And also Matthew 6:1 “Beware of practicing your piety before men in order to be seen by them; for then you will have no reward from your Father who is in heaven.

Hello, my friend. We have been in this battle together here for a long time. What is happening to our country is surreal.

I got my first limerick on the air on the Ray Bream show one night. The Paula Jones story hit and he asked for a limerick. At that time, Ray had the overnight show on KABC.

That Paula, he thought was some filly
When pants dropped, she thought him quite silly
But then later she’d file
And he’s soon lose his smile
He shouldn’t have whipped out old willy

After that start, I’ve probably written over 15,000 limericks and I did two Clinton books.
