William Penn received a charter from King Charles the Second to found Pennsylvania. Evidently, the king owed William some money, so in partial payment the king gave the land to him.
Instead of doing like other colonists did and just take over the land, Mr. Penn bought the land from the natives. This makes Pennsylvania the first and possibly the only state freely sold by the Native Americans. Penn named Philadelphia from the Greek philos “love” and adelphos “brother” and It has been referred to as the City of Brotherly Love even since.
It truly was the city of brotherly love as the city did not have the problems of being attacked by the Native Americans like many of the other colonies were. That makes sense, as the land was purchased from the Native American tribes.
Today, the phrase “The City of Brotherly Love” is under attack. An extremely small contingent of radical homosexual people managed to force the city through liberal activist judges to incorporate support city-wide for the homosexual lifestyle.
In a further attack, these homosexuals attacked the Boy Scouts of America and their facility in Philadelphia because the parent organization and the Boy Scout Code follow God’s laws. Naturally, God’s laws treat men lying with men and men lying with animals as abominable.
The boy scouts have a permanent lease with the city of Philadelphia for $1 a year for the land on which their building is located. This was deeded because of the great good the Boy Scouts organization accomplishes in that and other cities around the country.
They teach the scouts honesty, integrity and all of the commandments. The children receive a healthy respect for our Creator. And each troop accomplishes a thousand times the good as a government sponsored after school basketball game. You become a scout and you lose all interest in the gangs.
The Boy Scouts of America built this building with their own funds and the homosexual activists tried to make the scouts abandon it. I might add that the building is the only one supporting the entire city of Philadelphia!
The homosexuals lost the most recent court battle to destroy an organization that teaches righteousness. The Boy Scouts of America won the court trial for now and their civil and constitutional rights were preserved.
Please keep the Scouts in your prayers that they may be protected from a decadent lifestyle choice.
