Do you ever get that sick feeling in the pit of your stomach? We sometimes get it from falling but for most of us that have our feet firmly planted on the ground, except for the occasional carnival ride, it’s there to let your body know…….YOU ARE ABOUT TO GET HURT! There have been quite a few stories in the national media lately that have given me and I’m sure quite a few of you that OMG feeling. You may have even thrown up a little into your mouth over the assault on our religious freedom here in America!
If you have not felt this as of late you should probably stop reading and move on to someone elses site who either doesn’t care or doesn’t believe in the freedom of religion. Here’s the first amendment just in case you forgot it:
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.
Last I heard, the words have not changed. You have the freedom to exercise your religion! Congress can’t do anything about it! The states can ( that’s a little “s”) and if you read the amendment it says this only applies to Congress not making laws for establishing a “State” religion and I’m pretty sure that laws, on the federal level, can only be drafted by Congress. SOOOOOOOOOO who has the authority on the Hill to do otherwise. You want the simple answer…………NO ONE! NOT A SINGLE SOUL!
So how has our faiths come under fire so much lately in the courts? Would someone tell me where it says in the U.S. Constitution that the Supreme Court is given interpretive power of the constitution! It’s not there! I’ll give Section 1 to you;
The judicial Power of the United States, shall be vested in one supreme Court, and in such inferior Courts as the Congress may from time to time ordain and establish. The Judges, both of the supreme and inferior Courts, shall hold their Offices during good Behavior, and shall, at stated Times, receive for their Services a Compensation which shall not be diminished during their Continuance in Office.
So if Congress can’t make a law stopping us from exercising our religion and the courts don’t have the power to make the Constitution say only what they want it to say how are our liberties vanishing right before our eyes? If you want the simple answer again……. WE LET THEM!
Let’s look at some events from just recently that torques my butt! Little boy was reading his BIBLE at recess and had it confiscated from him. AT RECESS! Atheist parents are suing to get the schools to take out the UNDER GOD from the pledge. They’ve taken Christian prayer out of morning school activities while at the same time allowing Muslims to take over the cafeteria several times a day to worship allah! (Just got that sick feeling again) They are using our choir kids to sing praises to Allah while at the same time taking the prayer at the beginning of a school sporting events out of the pregame traditions. BHO had Notre Dame (sp?) take down all religious artifacts or cover them up at his speech a couple of years ago. There are countless crosses and copies of the Ten Commandments that are being taken down all over the country just on the “threat” of lawsuits from organizations like the ACLU and FFRF (freedom from religion foundation) or whatever they call themselves. WHY because we let them.
People have been tought all their lives about the “separation of church and state”. Find that one for me in the Constitution and I’ll let you post on my blog. NO REALLY whatever you wanna write! We’ve been so secularized that we rarely even see advertisements for TV church except on the church channels. We can show gay this and teens having sex that but “No God Please”…….or I’ll sue you!
Then there’s the hot topic of the day……..the mandate for all institutions that offer employee healthcare to pay for said employees birth control methods including the “morning after pill”. Ooooops! No wonder the birthrate in America is so low. Anyways, when the Catholics “raised hell” about it what did the feds do? They said fine, you don’t have to but whatever coverage you pay for from a 3rd party insurer has to provide it through their coverage! AIN’T THAT THE SAME THING? If congress can’t make a law establishing a religion or prohibit the exercise or any religion then I bet the president damn sure doesn’t have that power either. Speaking of the anti-Christian ruler of the free world, Did you know that his administration forced military chaplains NOT to read the Pope’s message to the church about this issue. I’ve been told that those same chaplains are not supposed to mention Jesus Christ in their sermons and are required to hold pagan services? Tell me if I’m wrong, I don’t know any personally.
I’m pretty upset that both the Catholic church and the United Methodists backed Obamacare while at the same time not being smart enough to figure over the last several hundred years what getting in bed with the government will get you into. When you have a president who bows to our enemies and on the same trip tells Israel that it should just go along with the Palestinians and divide Jerusalem……YOU HAVER SERIOUS ISSUES!
We had scripture in schools way back when. The first Bibles published in America were done so through congress for the intent of being tought in schools. They even allowed church ( of all faiths) to be held in federal buildings at one time long ago. We tought scripture in Congress itself right along with the Constitution. I guess we had less lawyers back then on the Hill……just sayin.
Where are the true “LIBERALS” that actually fight for our liberties? Where are the true Republicans who understand the rule of law and uphold them for the sake of this great republic?
The word Liberal has lost it’s meaning altogether and the poor Republicans don’t even know the meaning of what a true republic even is anymore. Both parties have elements of the progressive backstabbers running rampant throughout the hallowed halls of this great nation while at the same time tell us just to “get along” and do what I tell you is best for you!
When you get back into the Constitution read it with a sense that you had just fought the revolution yourself. You may have had family members die in your arms fighting off the crown. You had lived under the tyrannical king of England and his governors for too terribly long. You knew what absolute power does…….It corrupts absolutely of course!
So when you go to draft a Constitution, knowing that any document made by man couldn’t be perfect, you DO make it a work of “negative liberties” but not negative liberties for the people but to keep the federal government out of our lives! 18……that’s it! Anything else is delegated to the states and to its PEOPLE! Here ya go;
The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.- 10th Amendment if you didn’t know!
NOTE: After the last “,” it says OR TO THE PEOPLE!
That’s right we still have a say. The Supreme Court is not the end all be all. Neither is Congress nor the damn Executive branch. US as in me and you as individuals! You NEVER hear that anymore. Is it any wonder we let them stomp on us all the time with their jackboots and the all powerful pen.
When you get into bed with the federal government you, for some reason, give up your liberties to be your own entity. Remember that you ALWAYS have to Pay the Piper. Do you remember what happens when you don’t pay the Piper?
When it comes to religion…….WHATEVER…..you want to exercise in this country is kewl with me. That’s between you and God when you are no longer on this earth! BUT if you are part of a religion that is illegal in these United States you need to pack your crap and go back to where you came from. This includes all you who just can’t get along and have to cut people’s heads off to all those that think it’s “ok” or “commanded” to marry little girls.
Stand up, get on your feet and make some phone calls. Figure this crap out quick because if you haven’t noticed………the world is falling apart and no one in any level of “government” is going to figure it out for you. Stop letting the school board dictate how you feed your children or how that child worships or when for that matter. If you aren’t religious tell your kids that it’s ok not to pray in school but be respectful to those who do. If you don’t want them saying the “under God” part of the pledge………..tell them they don’t have to but don’t make my child suffer for your battle with the almighty! Just let Lucifer tell you how it’s going to him when you get there.
YUP if you haven’t noticed…….I’m angry and you should be also at the audacity of our government and it’s president to mandate anything to anyone that isn’t covered in the constitution. This isn’t just about religious freedom…..it’s about EVERY liberty you enjoy or at least once did!
