    When faith trumps even a job - By Bill Johnson, The Rocky Mountain News
    I get it. It is what too many of us have become these days, what we say and do when those who are not like us step out of line and buck the system. For whatever the cause might be. If you have a beef and your bloodlines don't run to the Mayflower or, at least, the last ship to dock at Ellis Island, just shut it up.

    I get it. Why are they moaning and walking off a steady paying job in the good, old U.S.A. when they could just as easily be sitting back home in Somalia getting their heads chopped off or watching their families die?
