Comedy Corner: Bedside Manners Susie's husband had been slipping in and out of a coma for several months. Things looked grim, but she was by his bedside every single day. One day as he slipped back into consciousness, he motioned for her to come close to him. She pulled the chair close to the bed and leaned her ear close to be able to hear him.

"You know" he whispered, his eyes filling with tears, "you have been with me through all the bad times. When I got fired, you stuck right beside me. When my business went under, there you were. When we lost the house, you were there. When I got shot, you stuck with me. When my health started failing, you were still by my side. "And you know what?"

"What, dear?" she asked gently, smiling to herself. "I think you're bad luck."


How are Men and Women Different: Money A man will pay $10 for a $5 item he needs. A woman will pay $5 for a $10 item that she doesn't need, because it's on sale.

Bathrooms A man has five items in his bathroom: a toothbrush, razor, shaving cream, a bar of soap, and a towel from the Motel 6.

The average number of items in a woman's bathroom is 328. The average man would not be able to identify most of them.

iTunes Review 1 Star by Kilton05 Aug 13, 2015 Hypocritical, Blasphemous and Boring God and guns?!!!! Any true Christian that follows Jesus teachings would never make a connection between firearms and the Father. Jesus taught love and forgiveness, turn the other cheek, not shoot first ask questions later. The time you spend on guns and politics dwarfs the time you dedicate to God. Making evident what’s in your heart. (We Googled and found a show that Kilton05 likes The Skepticrat an Atheist left wing show) So I think he’s a troll.


Obama supporters like guns to! 5 star by ron4sc, Aug 03, 2015 I love the praise and worship of our Lord on this podcast. The show is funny and informative and never strays away from a biblical interpretation of current events. I will give it five stars but I was going to give it four because every show has a comment implying our president is trying to send the black helicopters to take our guns. He may be on the wrong side of gun control, but it's no different that millions of people, like me, who grew up in an urban environment. The show would be better if you spent more time discussing the bible and less time discussing divisive Washington politics. Love the show otherwise and keep the jokes coming to. I’ve told several to the family at the dinner table.

Bible Verse 23 Now before faith came, we were held captive under the law, imprisoned until the coming faith would be revealed.24 So then, the law was our guardian until Christ came, in order that we might be justified by faith. 25 But now that faith has come, we are no longer under a guardian, 26 for in Christ Jesus you are all sons of God, through faith. 27 For as many of you as were baptized into Christ have put on Christ. 28 There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is no male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus. 29 And if you are Christ’s, then you are Abraham’s offspring, heirs according to promise. Gal 3:23-29 (ESV)

NRA Armed Citizen Armed Citizen in TX Stops Shooting Spree and Saves Cop by Making 50+ Yard Shot With a Pistol

This is a pretty amazing story. An armed private citizen assisted a police officer who was pinned down by the gunfire of a madman who had just killed 3 people and could have killed many more. Amazingly the concerned citizen, Vic Stacy, did so by taking a shot of 50+ yards using only a pistol.

The caliber and gun are unknown, but Stacy mentions a “magnum bullet” which could mean a .357 or .44. Stacy landed multiple shots on the shooter and this allowed the police officer to also land shots with his AR-15 while the suspect was distracted.

According to,

Stacy raised his gun, fired, and landed one heck of a shot – by his estimate “a good 165 yards” – with a pistol (we do not know the make or caliber at this time). Stacy wasn’t even sure if he could make the shot at that distance: “I hope this magnum bullet’ll hold up, you know, this distance. And sure enough it did and I hit him in the thigh.”

At that point, Conner returned fire against Stacy with his AR-15. He missed his shot, luckily, but that gave dead-eye Stacy another opportunity to pull the trigger. Stacy “hit him again and put three more in him … The patrolman got two shots in him with that AR-15. And it seems like he’s all over with, then.”

Conner died on the scene, but if it wasn’t for the aid of Vic Stacy, the body count might have been a lot higher.

According to follow up reports, the distance was corrected to around 50 yards. Support God and Guns by the following:
