    • Why do the u.s.a. think that GOD will always put up with the things that she is doing? We are having so many bad thing happing in our country now,ie; the trade center boming, all the bad weather where people are bing killed, young children are killing now, and now same sex marriages.GOD is trying to tell us something but we are not listening.If GOD was going to let this go on in his heaven why would anyone want to go there? Americans are always saying God bless americia, but what really needs to happen is americia needs to start blessing God.
