John and Jodi Pogline: Faith and history


To the editor:

We wish to thank Mr. Troy Taylor for providing clear facts for Mr. James Merett and the rest of the Craig Daily Press readers.

It is good to know someone else is interested in the truth about our Founding Fathers and is willing to research the public record to verify their “sworn public confessions of Biblical faith.”

America should be ashamed of its departure from the foundational principles upon which it was built. It is sad that 93 percent of our present day politicians don’t even have Biblical knowledge, let alone a confession of Biblical faith.

Pastor Potter is correct. We were founded upon Biblical principles. Mr. Jeremy Browning needs to return to his American history classes and review the colonization of America by the Puritans in 1607 as they searched for freedom from religious persecution.

The American Revolution of 1775-1783 was fought for independence from English taxation without representation and had nothing to do with sex.

If Mr. Browning wishes to know what a pastor’s duty is, he should research the Bible for his facts and especially read Ephesians 4:11-13.

Thank you again, Mr. Taylor, for setting the record straight about our Founding Fathers.

It is always best to have facts to support one’s opinion.

John and Jodi Pogline

I am sorry but I have a really hard time taking moral advice and anything regarding family values from the Pogline Family. I wish that they had better instilled their "values" in their children.

Those that protest the most have the most to hide. These people Bring back the memory of a lovely woman named Rose Scott.

"Those that protest the most have the most to hide"?

What a horrible thing to say or believe.

You'll know them by their fruits....fruits being how they act and what they say. You've shown yourself.

I agree with GreyStone. What exactly do you mean Taxslave? I am sorry but if there were only one bad apple in that family tree it would be one thing. When the whole crop is rotten it speaks volumes of how they were raised. In regards to their statement that America has lost it's Christian Faith I am reluctant to believe that. I do not agree that 93% of the American Population has lost their faith in God. If that were the case, Mr. Potter would be a representative of a vast minority, which I highly doubt.

"Those that protest the most have the most to hide."

Another example: Pastor Ted Haggard, preaching at New Life Church in Colorado Springs against deviant sexuality, Got caught with Meth doing bad things. Now he has been saved and is fleecing more gullible followers.

I think you all are missing the point here. This country was not founded on religious principles, it FORCED into it, do your history folks. The mass genocide done in the 16 and 17 century's where had you not followed the Catholic church you were garnered a witch and put to death. I myself am Pagan, and I KNOW the truth IS NOT in the bible nor in the ways of the catholic church, OR ANY church for that matter.

Just for the sake of discussion, let's say that you're right, there never has been a separation of church and state in the US. Do you think this is right? Do you think the government should actively pursue Christian ideals and persecute all others? Or, would you prefer a country with true religious freedom?

chefbaden, You are right there have been atrocities committed in the name of all gods over the past few thousand years. Muslims, Christians, Mormons and even Pagan Sun Worshiping Romans or Pagan Greeks have all declared war on other theologies in the name of their beliefs. Every person can proclaim exactly what you did in your previous statement, that they KNOW THE TRUTH. I am pretty sure that Mr. Potter is convinced that he KNOWS THE TRUTH and that the Pope KNOWS THE TRUTH. The real TRUTH is that none of us know the truth because faith is not a knowledge of certain fact it is a belief. According to Merriam-Webster Faith is a firm belief in something which there is no proof. For example, you have faith in your beliefs and you stand by them. Can you prove that your religion is any more or less plausible than another? The answer is no. Religious or spiritual beliefs are taken on faith because of their very nature, they are beliefs. I am glad that you have faith and that you have found a personal truth, but do not cut down the beliefs of others who do not believe like you. Doing so makes you nothing more than a Pagan version of Mr. Potter.
