Joe - I can never remember whether his name is Francis Scott Key or Francis Key Scott.

Joe said...

sue(small "s"): Francis Scott Key is correct.

sue said...

Joe (with a big J) - Either way, you gotta respect the guy.

Krystal said...

I think you made this quote up. No way ANY of our Father's could have believed in something as imbecile as the "Almighty" or the narrow mindednes of there being an "only Savior"!

You make it sound like Francis Key had some type of Judeo Christian belief system or something!

***sheesh***

I can only imagine that he is turning in his grave or in heaven helplessly watching how this nation has fallen into a deep hole of moral decay.

Joe said...

sue(small "s"): I sure do.

Krystal: Who would have thunk it?

Leticia: He may be watching, but he know the ending better than we do.

Oh, you're so right...our Founding Fathers were definitely not Christians...& neither was our country founded on Jud/Chrstn principles, either...
