Blamed It On – Music Video

Max Ribner Band

I blamed it on my brother, I blamed it on my sister, I blamed it on my father, I blamed it on my mother. Forgot about my individuality.
Release the fear, the beginning is near. Reflect peace, joy, happiness and bliss.
Find your spirit, find your gods.
In demand for equality. Hold your fist up high, right now is the time to unify.
I know the cure is being pure.
Feel the force, earth wind water fire, gonna take you higher.

We sought to create a nation whose moral force was much larger than our military force.

Behold the Profit that Hides the Sins of the World- sermon video

Community Christian Church of Springfield

The media does not question the deaths of the poor when profit is the motive behind their deaths but cannot tell us enough about Mosques in Boston and Islam in Russia. But who owned the plant in West, Texas? Where did the owners go to church? How were they so radicalized in their lust for money that they would place an entire town at risk? And why do we accept the deaths of the poor in indifference and silence?
