George Herbert Walker Bush, the 41st president of the United States, has died at age 94.
His death was announced by his family Friday night on Twitter. The president's health had been in decline in recent months.
"George Herbert Walker Bush, World War II naval aviator, Texas oil pioneer, and 41st President of the United States of America, died on November 30, 2018. He was 94 and is survived by his five children and their spouses, 17 grandchildren, eight great grandchildren, and two siblings," the former president's office said in a statement. "He was preceded in death by his wife of 73 years, Barbara; his second child Pauline "Robin" Bush; and his brothers Prescott and William or "Bucky" Bush."
His son George W. Bush, who served as the country's 43rd president, released a statement of his own from the family...
There are people lauding this man as a hero, but the fact of the matter is that this man was a globalist. This man, George H.W. Bush even said on 18 April, 1991, that "Nations that nurture ideas will move forward in years to come. Nations that stick to stale old notions and ideologies will falter and fail." Could the stale old notions and ideologies mentioned in his speech be referring to national sovereignty with a free enterprise economy? We already witnessed the loss of old-fashioned ways of thinking as a result of the 20th Century, which has only progressed in the 21st Century. Our old-fashioned ways of thinking are already being lost, so we need to defend them lest we lose them again.

This past Sunday at my Baptist Church Pastor Steve's sermon was about the lineage of Jesus on his Mother's side going back to King David. The Lord's Supper was also celebrated with bread and grape juice. I partook of the Lord's Supper at my Baptist Church.

So by your breezy generalization from a sample of a dozen or so, if all Masons are like Bush, and Bush was a Progressive warmongering statist, then your relatives and acquaintances were too. This might explain your politics then.
Jim, for at least the second time this yearâ€”a new record, perhapsâ€”you are right. There are a lot of Masons in Southern Baptist churches. Another good reason to â€ścome out from among themâ€ť and become an Independent Baptist.
I sure did, Neil, my father was a Freemason. Unfortunately, my mother got to him to go to a church once, and it was a Pentecostal one. People frothing at the mouth, do not set a good example. đź‘Ž

I already gave you an example of a very imperfect person, and Freemason, Warren G. Harding. He was one of the worst Presidents in history.
Also, I knew masons in the Methodist Church that I attended before I went to a bible-believing church. If you went to a Baptist Church you might have ran into Masons. that is one thing that John Ankerberg was complain about in his series on Freemasons there are too many of them in the Southern Baptist Church âť—

How do you know that? Do you hang out with Masons a lot?
Solomon is a blind hypocrite: the people who have destroyed civility in public discourse are mainly Democrats, who in past generations (as you should know) didn't call everyone who disagreed with them a racist or fascist. They only called them heartless or uncaring.
Besides, Bush's policies were not all that different from Democrats', so less need for confrontational language anyway.
Bush acted like a Mason for one thing, not like some anti-Christian Dominionist âť—đź‘Ť from a story done about HW Bush when he was in his late 80s.
John Solomon wrote: At the time, [Bushâ€™s style] didnâ€™t seem to be leadership qualities to the public. Some even saw it as weakness,â€ť says Roman Popadiuk, a national-security spokesman in the Bush White House who today heads his presidential-library foundation.
â€śBut now people are looking back at how he treated people and how Washington is now. And theyâ€™re appreciating how he harkened back to an era in which people were treated with respect and in which politics had some civility,â€ť Popadiuk says. â€śThe mutually cooperative way he tried to address things, the calm way he handled things in crisis. People see it today as a strength.â€ť
As his successor, Bill Clinton, puts it: people have come to value â€śthe contrast between his kind of conservatism and that which dominates todayâ€”less extreme in substance, less harsh in rhetoric, more open to reasonable compromise.â€ť

Brother Conner, I am not missing what you are saying to sc and I believe you have a valid point. Although I think your attempt to have her produce what you want is futile. (Not because she is not capable). I will, however give you the links that you request ..

Just trying to help out, read my first post, it had nothing to do with Bush, per se, it had to do with helping sc to build a good case.
Maybe if we are going to point out ties to Catholicism then we should be putting up examples of these men forcing the RCC religion on people through their governance or rulings. If that cannot be shown then it has no bearing on how they served in public life or should not be a thing disdained about them. Surely it is sad for their personal life, but apart from the grace of God there go we
It's easy when one goes straight to the source to make a case. When asked what he saw when looking into the eyes of "pope" benedict, Bush stated that he saw "God". Kavanaugh,a proud Jesuit,of course, cited his trip with Bush to see the pope as a high point. And the present faux pa has commended Bush to the Lord.
If so, this is nothing unique. Ron Paul, popular among limited-gov't conservatives, spoke well of the pope, and it was Ronald Reagan who established diplomatic relations with the Vatican church-state, no doubt to curry favor with RCC voters. This is why I was astounded to hear Trump contradict the pope. The man may be a Loose Cannon, but some things need to be said.
Writers, journalists, and TV talking heads take Rome seriously, even when criticizing. Hollywood and New York have long thought that Christianity is Catholic: https://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/ChristianityIsCatholic Only redneck nutters in Flyover States are Baptists, these ignorant fools think.
What is no secret and perhaps more disturbing, Neil, is that GHW was very tight with the vatican. Can someone be a Christian and embrace Rome and its faux pas? ... only in extreme ignorance The present faux pa has "commended" Bush to the Lord. Sadly, he thinks that it is in his power to do such. Lord help the Roman Catholics come out of this deception.
