For We Cannot Stop Speaking What We Have Seen And Heard

20 10 2007

Recently, two counties in NC have banned officials from invoking “Jesus’ Name” in their prayers. Councilman D.J. Haire had the following response:

“I am a child of God first,” he said. “I like being an elected official, but I’m not going to manipulate the Word of God to satisfy them.”

His response sounds a lot like two other guys I’ve read about.

Although Haire’s life is not at stake for his stand, he even sounds a bit like the guy in this picture: Anyone have a guess as to who the one depicted as the speaker in this picture is? And where he is at?).

I am not sure if you seriously wanted us to guess but the man in the picture is Martin Luther at the Diet of Worms.
