Allen Blood Drive is Monday Blood donors can show their community and school spirit by donating with Oklahoma Blood Institute (OBI) Monday, October 29th. Allen High School is sponsoring a blood drive from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., at 110 N. Richmond.
Each blood donor will receive the choice of a free University of Oklahoma or Oklahoma State University blood donor T-shirt and a chance to win a pair of tickets to the 2012 Bedlam football game.*
Masonic Breakfast Saturday
The Allen Masonic Lodge will be serving breakfast from 7:00 to 10:00 a.m. on Saturday, October 27th. The fundraiser will be held at the lodge on West Broadway. A menu of sausage, biscuits, gravy, scrambled eggs, hash browns and coffee has been planned. Due to the increasing cost of food and supplies the Masons will now be charging $8 per breakfast. Additional donations will be accepted and greatly appreciated.
Any donor who prefers to support Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals - locally, Children’s Hospital Foundation - can forgo the T-shirt. In turn, Oklahoma Blood Institute will make a monetary donation of similar value to Children’s Hospital Foundation. It’s a chance to ‘doubly give’ to local children battling critical health conditions. “One in three people will need blood in a lifetime,” said John Armitage, president and CEO of Oklahoma Blood Institute. “That is why we are asking everyone to show community support through blood donation along with their
school spirit during football season.”
Trick or Treat will be observed in the Town of Allen on Tuesday October 30
Country Comments by Bill Robinson, Publisher As a youngster I never had a “store bought” Halloween costume. I can remember dressing up as a cowboy and a ghost but it was always with items that we already had. As one who never spent a dollar on a Halloween costume, you can imagine my surprise when I read this past week that Americans will spend $370-million on Halloween costumes . . . for their pets! That is $70-million more than last year. An estimated 15percent of pet owners will buy outfits for their pets. If you are one of those, please bring your pet by the office so we can take a picture. —CC— Halloween was one of my favorite days as a child. We seldom got candy except on holidays and Halloween was the one time we could get a sack full of different treats. To this day I love candy. In fact, Dayna and I ate at Cracker barrel this weekend and on the way out I bought six packages of candy. You would think that would last a long time but it didn’t. How different candy bars got their names is very interesting. Mr. Goodbar owes its name to bad hearing. When management first tried the new chocolate-and-peanut bar in 1925, a taster said, “That’s a good bar.” Milton Hershey misheard the remark as “Mr. Goodbar” and kept the name. Junior Mints is a pun on the popular Broadway play from the 1940s Junior Miss. Get it? Tootsie Rolls borrowed the nickname of creator Leo Hirshfield’s daughter. Kit Kat debuted in 1935 as Rowntree’s Chocolate Crisp. Two years later, it changed its name to Kit Kat as a nod to the Kit-Cat Club, an early 18th century British men’s club. 3 Musketeers wasn’t always a chocolate bar. When the treat was introduced in 1932, it consisted of separate chocolate, vanilla and strawberry pieces, hence the name. Snickers is named for inventor Frank Mars’ favorite horse. Charleston Chew is a nod to the Charleston dance, which was still popular when the candy boogied onto the shelves in 1922. Milky Way bars weren’t named after their home galaxy. The name comes from a type of malted milkshake that was popular in the early 1920s. In 1920 the Curtiss Candy Company introduced the Baby Ruth candy bar causing a certain baseball player with a very similar name to take notice. Babe Ruth was having a monstrous year – his 54 home runs in the 1920 season were more than any other team the American League! If you were going to misappropriate someone’s name for a candy bar, Ruth’s was a logical choice. Sensing opportunity, the Great Bambino struck back by creating his own Babe Ruth Home Run Bar. Curtis quickly sued Ruth’s company for trademark infringement. But what happened next was surprising: When the Sultan of Swat accused the company of using his name, Curtiss feigned shock. Its bar was named after “Baby” Ruth Cleveland, daughter of President Grover Cleveland. For years, this has been the oft-repeated explanation, but the argument makes no sense. Cleveland had been out of office for more than two decades and dead for 12 years when the bar debuted. “Baby” Ruth herself had died of diphtheria in 1904, at just 12 years old. Although the country’s most famous baseball star would seem much more likely to have a namesake candy than a dead child, the courts sided with Curtiss. When Ruth learned of the verdict, he bellowed, “Well, I ain’t eatin’ your damned candy bar anymore!” Somehow the Baby Ruth bar survived without his support. —CC— During the Great Depression some candy bars were prescribed for health benefits. For example, the Goo Goo Cluster was prescribed for malnourishment. The claim was “a nourishing lunch for a nickel.”

Baby Ruths were prescribed for chronic fatigue. Their claim was “according to calorimetric tests, a person weighing 120 pounds can drive a car continuously for six hours and 40 minutes on the energy contained in one Baby Ruth.” Milky Way bars were prescribed for Vitamin A deficiency. Their claim was that it contained Vitamin A, noted chiefly for boosting growth and preventing infections, and the Sunshine Vitamin D, which prevents rickets. So, if you want to be really healthy, eat more candy. —CC— For those that eat too much candy at Halloween and decide to go on a diet, Patricia Lansma shares one of her favorite “diet” recipes . . . My three sisters and I have weight problems and are always sharing diet tips. One day my oldest sister was showing us a low-fat cookbook and pointed out a chicken dish she had tried the night before. Reading the ingredients, I commented, “It looks like it would taste really bland.” “It did,” she replied, “until I added cheese and sour cream.” And, on a more local note, my good friend Dianna Brannan tells a story about her grandmother’s favorite diet food . . . Slim Fast. Of course she always added two scoops of ice cream to make it taste better.

The Allen High School football season is rapidly winding down in 2012. Coach Kenny Deaton’s Mustangs will host Paoli this week as they battle the Pugs in the final home game of the year. Allen and Paoli will meet in a 7:30 p.m. showdown Friday at the Allen Stadium. “We will have play a solid game to have a chance for another win,” said Coach Deaton. “Paoli is a big, physical team. They’ll probably try to pound the ball right at us with their running game. We’ll have to slow them down and make some plays when we have the football.” Paoli is coming off a shocking 34-0 loss to Oklahoma Christian Academy. The Mustang defense will be looking to hold down the Pugs again on Friday night. Last week, Allen romped to an impressive 54-14 drubbing of the Macomb Hornets. The 40-point blowout was engineered by an offensive showing by Justin Deaton, Colten Browning and Conner Johnson.

Mustangs scored on Colten Browning’s 9-yard TD run. Johnson added a PAST kick to extend the lead to 21-0. Justin Deaton rocketed 22 yards for another Allen touchdown later in the quarter.

Dakota Nickell sprinted 47 yards to make it 34-0. The total swelled to 40-0 when Connor Johnson hauled in a 29-yard TD toss from Justin Deaton. Macomb finally got on the scoreboard late in the third quarter. The Hornets connected on a 45-yard touchdown pass to make it 40-6. In the fourth quarter, Allen went back to Conner Johnson for a 27-yard touchdown pass from Justin Deaton. Johnson
then toed his third PAT kick to swell the lead to 47-6. Macomb countered with a 9-yard touchdown pass and a successful conversion run. The effort cut the deficit to 47-14. Allen struck back on Colten Browning’s cross-country, 95yard touchdown run. Johnson followed with his fourth PAT kick to round out the final score at 54-14. “It was good to get back in the win column,” said Coach Deaton. “It was a good team effort. Everyone got into the game and everyone contributed to the win. For the most part, we came out and handled our business pretty well. I am proud of all of them. Looking ahead, Allen hosts Paoli this week and then finishes up the football campaign November 2 nd on the road against Fox.

and this year I will be in the Gift Shop. If you decide to come for the day, come in and say hello. T hey have a sorghum mill on the grounds that day and the cane that is used is all piled on the grounds near where a mule is going around and around, pulling the press that is grinding the cane. You don’t see these much anymore. After the sorghum is made, you can buy small jars of this newly made sorghum right on the grounds. When I drive home late in the afternoon and get to Sulphur, all the streets are blocked off for their Halloween Carnival and we have to detour for several blocks around the activity. They have decorated their streets for many years with Scarecrows, Pumpkins, Lanterns, and all sorts of holiday decorations and I enjoy seeing them. Healdton has not been decorating Main Street for that many years but it is good that our school groups have taken that over. This year the displays are especially good. I like the one in front of the newspaper office. The figure is dressed up with overalls, straw hat, glasses, etc.,
and is sitting on a bale of hay, reading a newspaper. A lso, the World Series in Baseball is coming up soon and I like to watch that contest, because it is one that I know most of the rules and can follow the game. This story is one that I have run before but I always think of it during the playoffs. I read this story several years ago in a book on baseball history. I think this is the kind of thing that might well have happened years ago, when the big stadiums were being built. This book in entitled Laughs from the Dugout by Milton J. Shapiro and he wrote it sometime in the 1960’s. “Probably the funniest day in all of baseball happened on opening day in Brooklyn in 1913. That was the day a brand new field called Ebbets Field was to open. Charley Ebbets had built this field for his Brooklyn Dodgers. The morning of the great day came, but nobody could buy a ticket because the ticket sellers failed to show up. Finally they were able to man the ticket booths where thousands were lined up to buy tick-
Aline Harris of Holdenville, Oklahoma passed away Saturday, October 20, 2012 in Choctaw, Oklahoma at the age of 77 years. Graveside services were held at 10:00 a.m. Monday, October 22nd, at the Non Cemetery with Pastor Alan Lewis officiating. Aline was born January 7, 1935 in Gerty to Bill and Beaulah Prince. She attended school in Non and Allen. Aline married Coy Harris on October 6, 1951. She was a homemaker and loved
spending time with her grandsons and two great granddaughters. Aline is preceded in death by her parents, two brothers, five sisters, daughter Debra Ann Harris, and grandson Justin Harmon. She is survived by her husband Coy of the home; sisters Patty Yeager of Shawnee, and Bobbie Breshears of Dearpark, Texas;
ets. However, no one could get into the park because the keys could not be found to open the gates. Locksmiths were found and the police were on hand to try and calm the thousands of ticket holders. The gates were finally opened and the festivities started. They began with a parade headed by Charley Ebbets and the Mayor of New York City, followed by players of both teams and an assortment of celebrities. When the procession reached the flagpole to hoist the flag, no one had remembered to bring the flag. Finally a flag was produced, ceremonies completed and the opening day contest began. The teams took the field and the Brooklyn pitcher struck out the first batter. It was then remembered the guest of honor, the Mayor of New York City, had not thrown out the first ball in traditional ceremony. The game was stopped for this event to take place. They disregarded the first out. The Mayor threw out the first ball and the game began all over again.” This is one of the many great baseball stories that has been told over and over again through the years and is a part of baseball history.

Pharmacist’s View No Heart for Heartland Flyer
Lots of people from the Allen area drive over to Pauls Valley and take a very popular passenger train called the “Heartland Flyer” down to Fort Worth for a day. It’s fun to ride a train and take kids to visit the zoo or something down in Texas. Taxpayers in Oklahoma paid dearly and worked hard to get rail service back to Oklahoma and it’s a success. Well, not completely. The Heartland is operated by Burlington North and I don’t know for sure but I suspect having the Heartland on their tracks is about as welcome as a hair in a biscuit. Some say that BN and its predecessor were glad to get rid of those fast passenger trains. Hauling freight was profitable and hauling people was a pain. At least freight didn’t complain when you got them wet or make them late. I mentioned hitting a bad storm coming home from Dallas. It turns out the Heartland Flyer did too—with far worse results for the passengers.
Christina Gayler can attest to that. She, husband James and their three children, ages 8, 3, and 1, rode the flyer down for a special day at the Zoo. The train started home at 5:25 pm and Burlington North, who operates the train for Amtrak, set a low speed limit because of the rain. The train soon fell way behind schedule and when it got up in Oklahoma (near Gene Autry) a limb fell across the track. While the helpless crew waited on someone else to come drag it off, the train was struck by lightning which disabled one of its two engines. Freight locomotives were driven to take the disabled locomotives off. The power went out and so did the air and the restrooms. Amtrak officials announced free beverages but when the passengers ambled back for some the concessions operators hadn’t gotten the word. Sorry—the passengers had to pay. But what they
didn’t know was this was just part one of a bad trip. Pulling into Purcell, six hours and 30 minutes late, spirits of the hapless passengers and cranky children were boosted—just to be on the move again. Air was working and the toilets were operational. It wasn’t far to Oklahoma City. The train also stops in Norman and it was there the passengers were warned that the train might face more delays and many got off. They had had enough. Passengers still left on the train started packing as the train slipped out of the station at Norman. They were ready for a quick get-away from this mobile torture chamber and ready to get their kids home. The train eased up to Flood Ave. and Rock Creek Road (still in Norman) and stopped once more. This time the crew got off—left the passengers and their babies just sitting there. The crew had reached their maximum
Surely, we should never feel satisfaction that even the basest person went to eternal separation from God! Jesus surrendered His life so that every person would be forgiven and not go there and His sacrifice was made even for the worst and most despicable person you can imagine. God does not want anyone to go to there. Hell was “prepared for the devil and his angels,” not for man. (Matt 25:41) It is described as a place of “everlasting fire” that shall “never be quenched.” (Mark 9:43) It is a place of such unending excruciating torment and anguish that it should never be wished upon one’s worst enemy. The person who would wish hell upon any other human is surely himself deserving of the place. Sometimes people say they cannot believe God will send anyone to such a place. God will not send anyone there. Anyone who goes there will
go as a result of their own doing. God has done everything possible to keep each of us out of eternal punishment. He sacrificed His own Son to prevent us from suffering our deserved torment, but if we “trample the Son of God underfoot” and consider His Son’s life’s blood as something common or inferior, how can we expect God to save us? “Of how much worse punishment, do you suppose, will he be thought worthy who has trampled the Son of God underfoot, counted the blood of the covenant by which he was sanctified a common thing, and insulted the Spirit of grace?” (Heb 10:29) Let’s put our faith in Jesus and obey Him. Then, we’ll never need to worry about going to that place.
Light from God’s Word
Mark Legg, Allen church of Christ Have you ever told someone to “go to hell?” If you haven’t, that’s great! Give thanks to God! Can there be anything worse than wanting someone to go there? Surely that’s the most unloving, most terrible desire we can wish for anyone! However, is there someone that you would expect to go to that place of punishment upon their death – maybe an enemy or perhaps a person of low morals and despicable character – and you would be pleased to know they died and went there?
shift hours and a replacement crew had to come and drive the pitiful survivors on up to their destination in Oklahoma City. About 8 more passengers bailed out here on Flood and where they went no one knows but I suppose they eventually threaded their way across the tracks and went home. There was a time not so long ago when we depended on the railroads for dependable transport. I can remember some of my New York buddies (back when I was in the service) who would try to go home from Boston every weekend. When the snow flew and the
ice got bad, they knew they could always catch a train. No matter how bad it got—the trains ran. Now I sometimes read after a little snow dusting that the Heartland Flyer is cancelled along with other passenger trains. Last week, a crew walked away leaving exhausted and stressed out passengers to fend for themselves and their kids. What next? And what happened to make the railroads like they have become? I hope all of you had a better weekend than the passengers on this Amtrak did and be sure and go to Church Sunday. Wayne Bullard, D. Ph firstname.lastname@example.org

Atwood First Baptist Church This was 2 week old Katelynn Craseâ€™s first day at Sunday School, and she seemed to be taking to it like a duck to water. Of course she has â€œmamasâ€? of all ages ready to come on the run if she needs anything, and Iâ€™m sure Zoey, Ray Lynn, and Torie will try their best to get there first.
On October 27th our church will have their October Festival. We will meet at the church at 6:00. The details of the rest of the party has yet to be decided, but it will most likely involve a hayride and hot dogs. As always, everyone is invited and we hope that you can come.
Harmony Missionary Church News Our Lordâ€™s Day at Harmony Missionary Baptist Church of
Gerty began service with singing Only Trust Him, There Is Power In The Blood, and Trust And Obey. Harmony Trio sang Never Alone and Greater Is He That Is In Me. Devotional Reading was â€œResisting the Spiritâ€?, Zechariah 7:10-12. It was marvelous to have Bro. Don and Sister Wanda Parr in service. Bro. Don preached his first sermon at Harmony twentyeight years ago. He was our pastor for eight years. Sister Marsh said we wanted to keep him until the Lord came but High Hill Missionary Baptist Church called him and God led him to be their pastor. He has pastured at Shady Grove the last several years, resigning about two months ago. He had heart surgery in April, his second heart surgery over the years. Since both our adult teachers were out, Bro. Don taught our lesson. They have the same Sunday School book as ours, â€œWitnessing in the Spiritâ€?, Luke 24:45-49, Acts 1:8, 2:36-38, and 5:31-32. The Spirit empowers the message of the gospel to convict the sinner of his lost condition and leads him to trust Jesus for salvation. Witness to others as you trust the Spirit to use the gospel through your testimony to win the lost. â€œYe shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem and in all Judea, and in Samaria and unto the uttermost part of the earth.â€? Acts 1:8 Sister Wanda sang alto with us in Iâ€™ll Meet You By The River, and Iâ€™ll Meet You In The Morning. Bro. Bill sang When The Saints Go Marching In. Bro. Donâ€™s message was â€œThe History of Israelâ€?, Genesis 46:1-8. We were greatly blessed to have Bro. Don and Sister Wanda in service. Shady Grove and his family are giving Bro. Don a retirement service on November 3rd.

Zoey McDonald and Torie Hammonds opened the worship service by reciting Psalm 86:5 and singing â€œJesus Loves Me.â€? Later, Tom Spillman brought another special song titled â€œWhen the Savior Reached Down for Me.â€? The two songs combined preach the gospel message all by themselves. Churches could have worship services without music, but itâ€™s hard to imagine what it would be like, and our community is blessed to have so many people who have been given a talent for music. Rev. Karch brought the second of a two part sermon about the churches addressed in Revelation. It was taken from scripture beginning at Revelation 2:18 and continuing through 3:19. The fourth church to receive a message from Jesus was Thyatira. It was commended for its love, service, and endurance, but it was at fault for tolerating a woman described as a Jezebel who was a false teacher and was leading other members into sin. She and everyone who followed her would be severely punished unless they repented. Sardis, the next church, was going through the motions but were really a cold, dead church. They were warned that Jesus would return like a thief in the night. After Jesus returns there will be no more opportunities to win people to Christ. The people in the Philadelphia church were doing all they were
supposed to be doing. Jesus commended them and promised that he would protect them from the great time of testing that will come upon the whole world. The last church was Laodicea. They were commended for nothing and were upbraided for being lukewarm. Though they regarded themselves as being rich in worldly goods, they were poor, blind, and naked spiritually. Still, Jesus welcomed them to turn from their indifference and become excited and diligent about living life with
him as their Lord and Savior. The warning and the invitation that Jesus sent to the church at Laodicea is one which todayâ€™s churches and individuals need to heed. Are we excited about serving God or are we lukewarm about our relationship and obedience to our Lord Jesus? If we are lukewarm, Jesus is ready to welcome us to turn from our indifference and find that close relationship with him that makes serving him exciting and fulfilling.

Atwood Church of the Nazarene
We enjoyed the beautiful autumn weather as we attended church this Sunday. Our preacherâ€™s wife, Murphy, has been sick for several years and we want to especially remember her in our prayers. She comes to church, even though she is feeling bad. Many times prayer in the only answer when the doctors donâ€™t know the problem. October is pastor appreciation month. We thank God for sending Murphy and Larry our way fifteen years ago. Our special â€œThank you for Giving to the Lord,â€? was sung by Bro. Larry. We never know whose life we are influencing, good or bad. We need to use our time and talents for God. His sermon was taken from Hebrews 4:14-16 and entitled â€œHold on to Faith.â€? Most of us can weather a bad day now and then. Some of us will experience trials that seem to have no end in sight. All of us will experience times when we just want the world to stop! Jesus knew how difficult life could be. The world turned on Him, friends deserted Him, and some wanted Him dead. Yet, through it all, He found the strength to keep moving forward. He maintained His integrity and His relationship with the Father. We donâ€™t have to solve our problems on our own, we have God. Prayer is often most needed when it is most difficult. We are encouraged to become bold and confident. When problems seem bigger than God, this is an opportunity to see God in action. We have a God that can handle it all. It is in those times of great need that we discover unlimited mercy and grace to help us. When we trust him completely we discover that mustard-seed faith is enough. Saturday, Trisha will have her Halloween party at 2:00 at her house. Also Sunday evening at 4:00, we will have our annual wiener roast and hayride at the river. Meet at the church. We want to remind you about our Christmas Bazaar November 3rd, from 9:00-2:00. You should be able to find some gifts and baked goods. We will be serving lunch, so come and enjoy our homemade soups and fried pies.
Itâ€™s Ho, Ho, Homocide
With the Christmas season well on its way, everyone at the North Pole is working hard to make this a holiday to remember. Despite the efforts of the arctic inhabitants, productivity is at an all time low, upsetting many and putting Santaâ€™s legacy at stake. Desperate for a change, there are many who are willing to do almost anything to increase efficiency and restore peace at the North Pole. But there is only one who will go too far and commit an act of murder in this mystical place. The annual Allen Murder Mystery, sponsored by the Allen Schoolâ€™s Art Club and the Allen Sorority, will be held Saturday, November 10th, at 6:30 p.m. in the school cafeteria. This yearâ€™s play is entitled â€œHo, Ho, Homicideâ€? and will have a Christmas theme. Guest detectives will be served a Christmas dinner, then invited to participate in uncovering the culprit. Cost of the evening is $10 for adults and $5 for students. A family package is available for $30. Tickets are being sold by the Art Club and Sorority members, and are also available from Mrs. Janice Deaton at the high school or at The Advocate office. As you join together for a holly, jolly Christmas party you will mingle with magical guests. In the end, you will need to decipher between the evil and the innocent, the righteous and the responsible, the naughty and the nice. To insure that the Christmas legacy continues unchanged, you will be called upon to employ your sleuthing skills to make certain that the criminal is caught. Make plans now to bring the family and enjoy a fun time!

HCCD Hookin’ Kids on Conservation
The Hughes County Conservation District (HCCD) recently hosted its 1st Annual 5th Grade Fishing Clinic for area students. The District invited all area schools to participate, however with Fall Break and prior planned events only three schools participated this year: Holdenville, Moss and Calvin. HCCD worked closely with the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Holdenville Fish Hatchery to provide the students with a valuable outdoor learning experience. The students learned how to identify the different varieties of Oklahoma fish and how to properly cast a rod and reel. The students were then able to spend the next hour trying to lure a fish onto their hook. While not all students were successful, everyone enjoyed the perfect weather for the event and discovering the other wildlife around the area. HCCD would like to thank the volunteers that helped to make this event a success. Thank you to Bill Newman, Don Groom and Clayton Porter of the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation, Shannon Wofford of the Hughes County Farm Service Agency, Taryn Wofford of the Pontotoc County Meat Science 4-H Club, the City of Holdenville and the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) Holdenville Field Office. The District would like to give a special thank you to Dale Jenkins, HCCD Vice-Chairman for volunteering the use of his pond for the event. For further information on any of the programs offered by the District or to see additional pictures of the event visit the HCCD website at hughesccd.webs.com or contact Andrea Jones at the HCCD office at 419 E. Highway, Holdenville, Oklahoma 74848 or by phone at (405) 379-2570. Visiting recently in Ada, at the home of Mr. and Mrs. C.C. Manuel and Jeffrey, were Martha Files, Isaiah and Desiree Files, Paul Evett and Betty Finney. —O&A— Recent guests in the homes of Carl and June Vinson and Lynn and Debbie Vinson were Chris and Ethan Vinson of Norman, Ron and Londa Litki of Ft. Worth, Texas, and Phillip Vinson of Cushing. —O&A— During the recent Fall Break from school, the Youth Group of the Allen First Baptist Church enjoyed an outing to Norman and Oklahoma City. In Norman they attended a 3-D movie at the Warner Theater, and in OKC they spent time at the Outlet Mall. Making the trip were Steve and Krysten Hall, Tyler Mann, Brett Mann, Preston Wallace, Kayla Lawler, Jeffrey Deaton, Jailyn Porter, Savannah Cook, Emily Wade, Alison Sells and Hannah Heck. —O&A— For the OU fans watching last Saturday’s game on TV . . . if you were alert when the camera was scanning the crowd you saw our own Eva Crabtree. You’ll not find a more loyal OU fan than Ms. Crabtree.

Concerned Patriotic American An Imam in the Middle East said, “The White House will be the Muslim House.” The head of C.A.I.R. (Counsel for American Islamic Relations) said, “We are not here to assimilate, we are here to become the dominant religion.” The Brotherhood Leader, Muhammad Mahdi Othman Akef said, “The Americans will come into the bosom of Islam.” Obama said in one of his books, “If an ugly situation develops, I will go with the Muslims.” An ugly situation is in development now. There are many Islamic groups in the United States that are now planning the takeover of our country. A few of them are ISNA, MSA, ICNA, IIIT, NAIT, MAYA, IAPA and, of course, C.A.I.R. The Muslim Brotherhood is alive and thriving with one of them already in the White House. Obama said, “This is no longer a Christian Nation.” He even attempted to tell churches who they could hire as ministers, but the U.S. Supreme Court in a rare unanimous ruling struck that down. Obama said, “I am a citizen of the world.” I don’t want a citizen of the world in our White House. Too many have given their lives and many others have suffered for our freedoms. Many take those freedoms for granted. Freedom is not free. If Obama should get another term, we will kiss those freedoms goodbye, renounce our Christianity or be beheaded. That is pure fact.
