The Faith Tones


(inspiration: Bluebird of Bitterness)

With those hairdoos, how could I help but search on them?

All of the women were trained church musicians, accomplished pianists and organists, and were members of the Lottie Moon Missionary Baptist Church in Winston-Salem NC. Their combined talents, along with their availability, proved to be quite productive. They quickly became a much sought-after group among numerous Southern Baptist churches often lacking in talented or inspirational musical devotionals in the area.

…the original members of The Faith Tones performed in hundreds of non-denominational churches across the Southeastern and Southern U.S. for the next eight years up until 1972.

The last known documented performance of The Faith Tones took place on October 26, 1971 during a week-long revival celebration at the Tyro Baptist Church in Lexington, North Carolina.

Supreme Court Guts Second Amendment By Refusing To Hear Semi-Auto Ban Case

Is it time to panic? Have Gorsuch and Trump abandoned the 2nd Amendment?

35 I would have to turn in my Internet Gun Guy card if I did not point out: It’s not an “automatic rifle ban” that was ignored by SCOTUS. It was Maryland’s idiotic Assault Weapons Ban.

Just a refresher: An “assault rifle” is a real thing, capable of shooting more than one round per trigger pull. They are, naturally, tightly controlled by US law. An “assault weapon” is a political distinction that boils down to “guns a liberal ignoramus finds scary”.

Somehow I doubt this will have too enormous an impact on the nation in the long run.
