Prayer march draws thousands to the Mall seeking healing for the nation

Thousands of Christians gathered on the Mall in Washington on Saturday, waving U.S. flags, kneeling in small prayer circles alongside monuments, singing and listening to speakers who called on the nation to come together and heal.

That is only correct if you look at the Roman empire and not the Roman republic as the Roman republic was lead by two consuls who were elected by the comitia centuriata.  The consuls then only stayed in office for one year and were only able to rule if they both agreed as one consul could veto the other consul in everything.

If all roads led to Rome, then Roman roads have to be circular.

Actually it was.  Only the elite had the money to run things.  And wealth gave a person the experience to 'balance the books'.  The Doges of Venice were usually one of the elite merchants.  It was their responsibility to see to it that operating costs were made for the city.  If there was a shortfall, it was the Doge that was responsible in covering it from his own pockets.  If they couldn't then, they'd be blinded and exiled among other things.  Not too many failed in over a thousand years.

I hope they aren't in D.C thinking Trump is some kind of messiah. Some evangelicals thought he was fulfilling the prophesy of Cyrus, both most have seen him for what he is. Honestly think about how much of these scriptures apply to Trump. Be honest. And these do seem like perilous times do they not?

2Timothy  3:1  This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. 
2Timothy  3:2  For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, 
2Timothy  3:3  Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, 
2Timothy  3:4  Traitors, heady, high minded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;

The Greeks were credited with creating the idea of democracy, but for them it only applied to land owners and the elite.  They had no concept of democracy for everyone as they also had slaves.  Rome was an empire with an emperor, not a democracy.  Romans created the current christian religion, though so maybe that is why you confused them.

And are confused about who the comita centuriata was?  It wasn't "the people".

From the OP link, quoting Franklin Graham:

There are those that would like to tear this nation apart, to keep a conservative justice off the bench. The president said he was going to appoint conservatives,” Graham said. “He’s keeping his word; he’s kept his promise. We now need to just pray that God would watch over and protect him.”

_____________
Immediately before the solar virus arrived, I directly warned Franklin Graham here, about his blind loyalty to this President.

The Graham family sadly has a thorough history of cozying up to vile Presidents. His late father, Billy Graham, told president Nixon on the secret White House tapes that he would like to “slash the throats of Nixon’s political enemies.”

Franklin Graham is a classic case of the blind leading the blind. A shepherd, happily leading his flock into the Lake of Fire. In fact, he wades into the Lake of Fire, and coaxes his followers, saying, “see, it’s not dangerous.”

Franklin Graham should have learned a lesson from his father’s statement, when another undeniable crook, Nixon resigned in disgrace.

When speaking in support of Nixon, on the now infamous secret tapes, against the free press, The Reverend Billy Graham stated, “I felt like slashing their throats.”

At the 1:30 minute mark ...

If I stand as a witness against the false Church, Mr. Graham, it will be as if far more than the gates of Hell have prevailed. It will be the East wind blowing the chaff.

Trump, like Snowden was a human plaga, sent to destroy .... acknowledged by lost souls, as anything more.

The whole world will be a better place when people put down this nonsense and actually start helping people instead of wishing a magic genie will do it for them.

It would make sense to destroy the Coliseum.   Also the Pantheon.   Aren't preserving and honoring slave owners?

Whether they were built by slaves or not, I don't think destroying historical buildings is a good idea.  It is very different than removing modern statues of reprobates like Onate or Custer.

Slaves of that time were not slaves because of their race AND once they were freed they were free. Nice try.

That also depends on what time period of the Roman republic you are talking about.  After 318 BC consuls no longer picked who were senators as that power went to the censor.  Also the censor was required to pick any newly elected magistrate as a senator and plebeians were capable of becoming magistrates.

Also in around 368 BC the Lex Licinia Sextia had two of its three laws passed, the third law was passed later and it required one of the two consuls to of been a plebeian if I remember correctly

A reasonable argument.

I’ve often wondered what we would be like without faith in a Higher Power.

The problem is, our ability to cause mass extinction may require an intervention.

Even more perplexing is the early forecast, around two thousand years ago that just such a technology would appear. My arguments in early 2011 here would be underlined in more than “genie”-like fashion. It wasn’t “magic” that caused the seas to rise at Fukushima, it was something more profound.

HBOMax has a new series called “Raised by Wolves.”  You should check it out.

There were also laws punishing slave owners for mistreating slaves and term limits for slavery.

I agree, I should have noted sarcasm in my post.

So where is Trump’s nemesis? His annoying prophet of old? His Moses, saying, “let The People go?”

Don’t bother asking Franklin Graham, son of the late evangelist Billy Graham, because he was sitting, close to front and center, at the super spreader event .... defiantly maskless.

Franklin Graham at White House Rose Garden Super Spreader Event - https://www.washingtonpost.com/graphics/2020/politics/coronavirus-attendees-barrett-nomination-ceremony/

Source 

Franklin Graham is “deceived” by a cult leader, with no excuse for a delusion so obvious.

Watching the gates of Hell prevail, and obeying the Dark Lord, are one and the same.

The misfortune of the United States, has only barely begun.

Raptor, old soul, I’m sensing a wee bit of a grudge against Franklin a Graham in your posts.
