Quotes from the Founding Fathers

The Dragon Thanks and Gives a 'Hat Tip' to the "#Mono-theism" Site on the Internet that featured this article 

Although I am the Pastor of my Own Church, I like to point out that OUR main purpose is to help improve mankind's lot in life in any way we can, by providing fresh vegetables and food, along with govt help in the form of grants for our rural neighbors ... at the same time I would like to point out that THREE evils were put into place during the Sumerian Empire circa 3180 B.C. ... Government, Banks, Religion.   Government is here to restrain your mind and, sometimes, your body, while banks restrain your finances and earning ability, and Religion restrains your soul.  But the Fontanetum Team is here to put an end to all of that.  We will introduce you to God for perhaps the First Time in your Life,  as a Light Worker it is what I do.  Peace, Love, and Light to All! ~ Pastor Dave 4/3/12
