Of Revolutions and Defeating the Giants with Bridges

But the Consul's brow was sad,
And the Consul's speech was low,
And darkly looked he at the wall,
And darkly at the foe.
`Their van will be upon us
Before the bridge goes down;
And if they once may win the bridge,
What hope to save the town?


XXVII.
Then out spake brave Horatius,
The Captain of the Gate:
`To every man upon this earth
Death cometh soon or late.
And how can man die better
Than facing fearful odds,

For he ashes of his fathers,
And the temples of his Gods,

I wrote about how everything in the media spoke about starting a revolution.  And then of course was the bridges in New York

I couldn't help but think of posts past when I read these headlines:

Praying to a Different "god" in a Christian Church?

I am just done.  You cannot get any more blasphemous than this...To me this is just like when the A.C. seats on the throne in the Jewish Temple and declares himself the messiah.
