440 Miles

Well, normally I don't write about politics or religion or subjects of that nature but I did want to let everyone know about a personal friend of mine, Scott Teague, who is making a 440 mile walk from my hometown of Mountain City, Tenn to Washington DC in hopes to speak with Congress and ask them to write and enact a law which protects display of The Ten Commandments in Courthouses, public buildings and schools.

I believe it was in September when the Mayor expressed concern because one man was offended by the display of The Ten Commandments in the courthouse in Mountain City. It was then that Scott Teague, a businessman in Mountain City, organized a group to keep the Ten Commandments in courthouse. In just a short time he had collected approximately 9,240 signatures in favor of keeping the plaque where it was. That is over half the people in a county of 18,000. The Ten Commandments are still displayed in the courthouse.

Scott says his mission is to make America aware that because of our separation of the Ten Commandments our country has experienced moral decay and economic crisis. My vision is to inspire God-fearing Americans to reclaim their beliefs of almighty God and to call upon his namesake to protect and heal our land.”

Good Luck Scott, May God continue to bless you on your journey. Please know that my thoughts and prayers are with you.
