Shortly after the funeral Freddie Gray who died while in police custody, all hell broke out in Baltimore. The police were even attacked. Some news sources are claiming that the police even threw bricks at teenagers protesting.
Buildings, cars and other property were set on fire and several police officers and even journalists were hurt badly. Many businesses were even looting. It seemed like a repeat of the Furguson riots during the fall when a jury exonerated former police officer Darren Wilson of charges against him.
Maryland Governor, Larry Hogan had to declare a state of emergency and brought in the National Guard to help restore order. Things seem to not have calmed down and may get worse. Baltimore is much larger than Furguson and due to the funeral, many outsiders have come in among them, instigators. Schools, business and other events were cancelled including the Baltimore Orioles baseball game.
After consultation with Baltimore City Police Department, tonight’s game between the Orioles & White Sox at Oriole Park has been postponed.

Just days after the March for Marriage, the Supreme Court is scheduled to hear the oral arguments for and against so-called same-sex marriage. Already many have set up campsites outside of the court believing the decision to be “history in the making.”
The justices will decide if States have a right to prevent same-sex marriage based on their own constitutions and so forth. It is expected that many will show up at the court supporting same-sex marriage and traditional marriage. A decision by the court in favor of same-sex marriage can affect how a State views and exercises its own sovereignty as well as how Christians and other religious groups can exercise their faith privately and publicly.
In light of the decision of the SCOTUS to knock down DOMA & Prop 8 in 2013, it is believed that they will decide this time in favor for same-sex marriage. According to historians, it has been the trend of the SCOTUS to see where the public moves on an issue before deciding on it. Unfortunately, the media supports same-sex marriage and has fed the people false statistics claiming that a large majority of American favor same-sex marriage when, in fact, that is not true. As Christians, we know that the times will get worse before the final coming, so I will not hold my breath into thinking the SCOTUS will defend traditional marriage. All we can do is hope, pray and endure the persecution that is to come.
