Furman Grad, Sociology major but it was little tougher than Auburn football players had Had three dates with beautiful women the summer of 1978. Did not marry any of em. Never married anybody cause what was available was undesirable and what was desirable was unaffordable. Unlucky in love as they say and even still it is sometimes heartbreaking.

Immigration prayer for Jeff Sessions

   In Baptist world and beyond Wednesday night is prayer meeting. So I called several folks last night after hearing reports on NPR about the rallies nationwide for immigration reform yesterday.

   I called Trinka Payton of the Liberty Hill Baptist Church in Collinsville, Alabama and asked her to mentions Sessions in prayer

I texted my friend Randall Balmer at Dartmouth.

Called a friend in Bham and caught him at the Barrons game at the new field, but he said he would pray during the 7th inning stretch.

Tried to get word to Malcolm Argo of the FBC Americus, Georgia

My Presbyterian friend in Raleigh John Baker, texted him and asked him to get Ernie to pray.

     Senator Jeff Sessions is on the wrong side of History on immigration reform. Children who have been in our public schools since 6th grade and have done their work and demonstrated character have earned their citizenship, no further questions, no sabotage by the border fence.

   I am convinced the Judge Frank Johnson of page 120 of Taylor Branch's The King Years is speaking from the grave to tell Sessions his version of "The Law" doesn't allow for the circumstances that gave Johnson the Lincolnesque moment to stand up to George Wallace's lawyers at Key Moment in the Selma Struggle.

If Senator Sessions wants some Christian input in this moment, invite UMC Bama Bishop Willimon to testify under oath before Congress what he saw in Bama

Invite Robert Parham of ethics the son in law of former Bama SBC Prez Walter Nunn to testify.

Read my Indian Springs blog here at this site.

Senator, John C Calhoun is dead. Long live Martin King and Judge Frank Johnson, and the saints on the Justice Porch of the National Cathedral in Washington, D.C.

Let Freedom Ring.
