    Pearl Harbor

    I had expected someone to create a topic for this subject today, but since no one has, I cannot let this day pass unnoticed. I believe FDR's response to this cowardly and dastardly attack by the Empire of Japan is an appropriate reminder of the significance of this day...

    Must God Submit His Decisions to Us for Our Approval?
