2010 years ago, man brutalized and murdered Jesus. They were forgiven. Now man is at it again, albeit not in such a violent manner, as yet. And it's not just Jesus they're after although He is a preferred target.
While the Left in this country insists that there is no "war on God" - even as they continually attack anything to do with Him - they also fallaciously repeat the claim that the constitution erected a wall of separation between church and state. There is no such wall except in the imaginations of those who wish it to be.
Along with the deteriorating state of our society, America is now engaging in religious persecution and, in this case, prosecution. Ironically, this is the very thing the Founders sought to prohibit by their constitutional intent. How the liberals have bastardized the words.
Case in point: In Pensacola ,Florida, a school principal and an athletic director are facing a $5,000 fine and up to six months in prison. Their "crime"? They said "grace" at a luncheon, one at which there were no students present, according to one report. According to the article in the Washington Times, the school district had settled a suit - filed by the ACLU - out of court, agreeing to a variety of demands by the organization, one of which is chilling. From the article:
Mr. Staver said the district also agreed to forbid senior class President Mary Allen from speaking at the school's May 30 graduation ceremony on the chance that the young woman, a known Christian, might say something religious."A known Christian"? That sounds like the disclosure of a criminal or otherwise sinister affiliation. And the ACLU wanted her banned from speaking on the chance that she may "say something religious". Excuse me, but aren't the two middle letters in their acronym "C" and "L", standing for Civil Liberties?
"She was the first student body president in 33 years not allowed to speak," he said.
Twisting the intended meaning of the Founders words to fit an agenda diametrically opposed to those very words is bad enough. Locking people up for daring to utter the name of God or his Son is precisely the type of behavior the Founders wanted to prevent, and now the left has successfully managed to distort that intent and use it against the people.
There is a consequence, however, that could make all of this seem insignificant by comparison. Lest we forget, we managed to piss off God long before Jesus came along, enough for him to wipe us all out, save for one man's family and a menagerie of animals. One would think the murder of His Son would have brought his wrath once more, but it was his Son that begged for mercy on our behalf. If these cretins manage to make it a crime to remember them, God and Son could very well become sufficiently angry again. Who will save us then? Sphere: Related Content
