No Casino in Gettysburg!!!

Well, the almighty dollar has reared its ugly head yet again. There has been a proposal to erect a 5000 slot gambling casino in Gettysburg, PA in the U.S., sight of the most decisive battle of our Civil War.

I'm not a gambling fan myself, but aside from the issue of gambling itself, this proposed casino does not fit the historic feel of the area and would be inappropriate.

If you have ever been to Gettysburg, or studied the Civil War and oppose this casino, go to http://www.nocasinogettysburg.com for more information.

"Slavery ended in medieval Europe only because the church extended its sacraments to all slaves and then managed to impose a ban on the enslavement of Christians (and of Jews). Within the context of medieval Europe, that prohibition was effectively a rule of universal abolition. "— Rodney Stark
