Last week, the attorney general of the United States, Michael Mukasey, collapsed at the end of a speech he was giving to the Federalist Society in Washington, D.C. Kathyryn Jean Lopez, of the national Review Online writes, that while he was ‘heckled and called a “tyrant” by one of the dinner guests (a Washington State supreme-court judge),’ at the same time, as soon as he collapsed, once several people rushed to his aid, people all around her bowed their heads and prayed for his health and safety.
The Sacramento Pravda shares a story today of the Cannon-Jackson Thanksgiving, four generations of an African-American family that gathers each year to partake of turkey (several of them), all the side dishes and ‘Robert Redford’ desert (you have to read what’s in it).
This year, there are 150 of them gathering – Christian, Muslim, Catholic, Protestant – and they are all welcome. Even the gay cousin. The Cannons and Jacksons oppose gay marriage, but welcome each family member.
States one of the matriarchs, Dorothy Hill, “About five years ago, we were talking about homosexuality as it relates to our biblical training, and one gay cousin was very bold, adamant and vehement, and no one held it against her. We have backsliders and sinners, but no atheists, not that they’d be left out. “The whole point is family.”
Enjoy the day with your family.
