Connecting the Dots in an Unconnected World

No More Free Exercise of Religion

Do we still possess the freedom of religion in the United States? That is a question that we should never be required to ask. The First Amendment of the Constitution of the United States reads:

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

However, a liberal judiciary and activist judges have reinterpreted the first amendment to the point that a pair of Florida men may go to jail for praying at their school. An August 15, 2009 Fox News article titled, Florida Principal, Athletic Director Could Go to Jail for Prayer Before Lunch at School, details the account and charges being brought against these two Christian men.

While Islam and Satan worship are to be tolerated, Bible believing Christians have become the persecuted people of 21st century America. It is insane that men might go to jail for praying at school. Not only are Christian rights being snatched away all manner of American freedom is disappearing. It is time to speak up and have your voice heard. To do nothing is to give away the privilege of a free people.

History records Baptist as a most persecuted people. Could history repeat itself in America?

Attempting to connect the dots…

Romans 1:16

“Those who expect to reap the blessings of freedom, must, like men, undergo the fatigue of supporting it. “
~Thomas Paine
