Dream of Grandure

A dream of Mine

Mr. President:

Every person I know has dreams that are too high to achieve. These are dreams of Grandeur. I have one very lofty one. Please follow the lines of my thought. Be entertained and I hope informed. Of all the e-mails I have sent you, I hope this one is put in your hands and read by you. I hope you post it for all to see for the good of all to have.

I’m an actor at heart. So ACT 1 Scene 1 of.


I enter from stage right in my church sanctuary. I am dressed in black overlapping leather plate medieval armor. Emblazoned on the chest peace is a white Pegasus. I wear over this a Black hooded cape with a red lining. The hood is pulled over my head. I have heavy boots on my feet and a blond cedar walking staff in my left hand. On stage is the entry to an Imaginary commander’s tent. Behind the entry are two tables. One large table that is at the front of the platform; a small one is at the back of the platform. There are rolled up papers on the large table and a basin and water pitcher on the small table. I climb the three steps of the platform and enter the staging area. As I do so a boy 10 or 11 years of age enters and calls to me.
“Commander, commander the enemy is beginning to move. I’ve come to warn you of their movement.”

I answer, “Don’t worry lad it’s not their time to move yet. This is a false action to put us off guard. This is what I want you to do. Go to the high place and sit. Take some food and water and watch them from there. When you see their torches begin to gather in the center of their encampment and next begin to slowly go to the front lines. Then you come and tell me. “

He turns to leave and I speak again.

“Oh! Lad, have you heard if the replacements have arrived. “

He speaks.

“Sir, I have heard they have arrived but I have not seen them.”

“Good, now go son and keep your eyes open.”

“Yes sir, right away sir.”

The lad leaves and I enter the staging area and go to the small table. There I lay my staff against the table and pour water into the basin. I remove the hood and reveal I am wearing a steel helm. This I remove and set on the table. I dipped my hands into the water and wash my face and hands. I dry them with a towel and walk to the larger table. I unroll a map and begin to study it. I look up and see the audience. I pause moment and say

.“At last you have arrived. Each of you is needed and each of you will have a different and very important assignment.
Some of these assignments will be tough and some not nice. Each however must be done. The army of Satan is on the move; we must stop them at the river and hold them there. The battle is the Lords and he will be victorious.
The chairman of the National Education Association has sworn the he will inflict our children by establishing a course on, “How to be a homosexual”. This course will be placed in all public schools starting in kindergarten. This must not happen. We must protest this action at all levels of government.
The homosexual lobby is moving to declare Gay Unions as true marriages so they can have the same rights as other married couples. We must support the Marriage Amendment, which states that marriage is the union of one man and one woman.”
As I am speaking a man gets up and walks away. I ask
“Are you leaving and why?”
He turns and speaks.” I am leaving because I do not want to hear your words of hate.”

“Words of hate” says I”

“Yes” he says, “I am the chairman of the local Education board. You do not want to allow the homosexual to be what he is. That is hate. You are against homosexual marriage as a way to beat down the homosexual. It is just pure hate.”
As I faced this man I speak with power.

“In this country anyone can be what he or she wishes to be. I do not dispute that. However, no one can teach our children subjects that we as parents do not approve of. As for marriage, that is a union given by God Almighty to his people for the life style which God himself setup for his

people. Marriage is a triune life style, one man, and one woman in a lifetime communion with GOD. It is a holy institution not to be tampered with by man.

“But that is teaching hate to your children and denying the homosexual a full measure of life. “
He says.
“No” say I,” To teach the truth is not hate.”

He speaks, “Your truth. There is more than one point of view. Teaching your truth is teaching hate.

“There is but one truth and it is the truth for all.” Say I, “God has given, we Christians two (2) mandates. The first is that we as Christians cannot conscience or support in any way shape or form the life style of homosexuality.

The second mandate says we must show the Homosexual the love of Christ and give him the right to choose. If he Chooses Christ and gives up the old way. We must accept him into our lives. If he chooses the old way, we must kick his dust from our feet and walk away. But the offer of the Lord Christ will always be there until God Himself takes it away. It is God’s way or Mans way that is the only choice.
“You’re wrong! There are more choices than that. I am leaving; I want no part of this.’
As he leaves I speak.
“Man has many ways and many paths to follow. Christ said “I am the way the truth and the light, no one comes unto the Father except by me.”
I turn to the audience and look with concern. I speak.
“Another problem is about to be pushed hard by Satan’s Harpies. Abortion is the murder of the unborn. A national effort is being mounted to prevent parents for being notified if their child is pregnant and an abortion is to be performed”
As I am speaking a lady gets up and begins to leave. I stop and then I speak to her.
“Is something wrong? May I help you?
She turns to me.
“Yes, something is and I am leaving.”
“Why” I asked
“I am the chair woman of the National center of Planned Parenthood. You want to interfere with the woman’s right to choose.”
“You mean the right of a woman to kill her baby.”

“No, it is not a baby until it is fully born. Until then it is a bunch of cells or a fetus but not a baby.”
“Madam”, say I.” We have a saying here in the south. If it walks like a duck and it has feathers like a duck. If it quacks like a duck and it looks like a duck. It’s got to be a DUCK.
If it is made of a human ovum and a human sperm whether it is in Petri dish or a woman’s womb it is a human baby. It makes no difference if it is two cells or 20 cells or a fully formed body. It is still a baby; to take its life is murder.
The American Medical Association has stated that with proper prenatal care abortion is not necessary. The AMA also states that there is no medical necessity or reason to perform Partial Birth Abortion. It is proven however that a greedy doctor can make thousands of dollars in six months by selling baby parts to research companies. Most of these companies are out of this country where the laws that prohibit the practice can’t touch them. The only proven reasons for abortion are convenience and money.”

She walks out saying “Your wrong.”

I watch her as she leaves then my eyes cross to the audience. As I look at the audience I notice nine (9) robed people in the front row just listening to me. I look at them and I speak.
“As to the nine (9) persons seated before me. I have read the letter written by Thomas Jefferson and I purpose to change one word in that letter. That word is church. I will change it to a word that has more practical meaning today. That word is denomination. Jefferson was not talking about a wall of separation between God and state because he knew that you could not separate the Lord God and our government. He was referring to the

differences between the denominations or sects in our country. He did not want to offend one denomination in preference over another.
Jefferson believed in God and sought after God for advice in his life, as did Washington and Adams.
If you will look at the charter of the vary building in which you hold your court sessions. That charter states that the building is to be used for court sessions on weekdays and church services on Sunday. Your court building is a very large church. But you know this don’t you, and it is the last thing that you want this country to know. Right!
The last sentence of Jefferson’s original draft of the Letter is a clause, which he left out in the final draft because he did not want to offend anyone group. It states!”Discipline of each respective sect!”
How respectful this president was. In no way did Jefferson wish to separate church and our Government. He went on and thanked the people for
Their prayers and would pray for them as well. Does this sound like a separation of church and state? Thomas Jefferson is actually asking for prayer that he might do a good job in office.
The facts are that you are basing your judgments on a misunderstanding and the lies of anti-God zealots. You cannot successfully separate God and this Government, because this Government is, as our Fore Father wanted it to be. That is our laws and our Government, are based on God’s precepts and rules. Stating it any other way is a falsehood!
I turn and go to the little table and retrieve my helm and staff. The boy enters and alerts me to the enemy movement. As I leave the little window in my staff lights up and I look at the audience and say.
‘The light of the Lord my God is here. The battle is his.”
I then leave the room.
I said this was a dream. I pray to God that it will come true for someone even if it does not come true for me.


I dream of great things, I do the little things.
I dream of great deeds of valor, I do needed things of necessity.
I dream of fighting for God and Country, I teach lessons to my little ones As God would have it done.
I have done one great thing. I bowed down to the Cross and gave, myself to the one who gave his all for me.
