Religious freedom is under seige

Published

on

The Dallas-Fort Worth based religious liberty organization Liberty First recently just put out a 418-page booklet called “Undeniable: The Survey of Hostility to Religion in America.” It is an extensive read of how so called Civil Liberty-Libertarians and/or Free Thinker-Atheist groups who are in reality just a part of the first wave front group for the Progressives in their attempt to “fundamentally transform America” into their utopia, in which their understanding of “Situational Ethics” will allow them to force upon the American people their worldview that runs counter to many people of faith.

If you think what I just stated is hot air, you need to look no further than the Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF). It was founded by Anne Nicol Gaylor who prior to the founding FFRF was and still was up until her death in June 2015 an advocate of so called abortion rights (i.e. Pre-Born Baby/Child Murder) and population control (which it means eventually legalized murder of anyone deemed unfit). She also served on the board of directors on what is known today as NARAL Pro-Choice America. She also wrote a book that also became one of her proudest statements in political activism. That statement and book is called; “Abortion is a Blessing” (the book is out of print but the entire book can be read at their website). Granted you can talk about how pregnancy is no cake walk and yes there were women that died in child birth but that is another article in itself.

The American Civil Liberties Union was founded by Roger Baldwin who opposed America entering World War I and actually supported the Communist regime of Russia that recently took over that respected nation, but eventually Baldwin did condemn the actions of Joseph Stalin and tried to put a distance between his ACLU and open activists of Communism in America. Still, the ACLU to this very day is a first wave progressive attack group. Both the ACLU and FFRF are supporters of the “Do No Harm” act, which if it ever passed would modify the Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA) in the favor of Pro-Abortion and LGBT activists. They could not object to doing business with homosexual activists nor they can object to funding abortion and birth control plans in the company health care policy (nor can any religious organization object). Now do you understand why they just want to limit your faith to just the four walls of your church? Abortion and the LGBTQ agenda are just the tip of the iceberg, and there are other groups that share the same mind set with the ALCU and FFRF.

Residents take sides as Rowan County commissioners decided to appeal prayer lawsuit to Supreme Court | Salisbury Post

http://www.salisburypost.com/2017/09/26/residents-take-sides-as-rowan-county-commissioners-decided-to-appeal-prayer-lawsuit-to-supreme-court/Of the 20 people who spoke, most were in favor of the commissioners appealing the 4th Circuit Court decision that said the commissioners acted unconstitutionally by offering sectarian prayers before their meetings.

But six of the 20 asked the commissioners not to appeal the ruling and to accept the verdict.

“We all understand that this is a predominantly Christian county,” said Whitney Peckman. “However, we are a rapidly changing community, and many more ethnicities and religions are now represented.”

In 2011 there were 600 attacks on religious freedom, fast forward to 2016 and that number jumps to 1400 (133% increase). After eight years of President Barack Obama, the progressives have become embolden than ever to eventually push their world view and agenda and finally do away with what the founders intended including Freedom ‘OF’ Religion. The first wave progressive groups did a great job of twisting the 1st Amendment like a pretzel and inserting Thomas Jefferson’s letter to the Danbury Baptists into the 1st Amendment and twisting that letter as well. The state used to protect faith, but that has been turned on its head and now the State can tell Churches what to do but the Church can’t object has to submit to whatever the state wants.

First Liberty is fighting the battle that should have been fraught long ago. “Undeniable” documents the legal threats made by the likes of the ACLU, FFRF etc etc, and how public schools and universities and local governments are really breaking the law while trying to avoid a fight with the first wave progressives. These Progressives might have the money, but First Liberty has the knowledge and try to make us understand the rights people of faith have. The book is free and available on either hard copy and digital download by visiting https://firstliberty.org/Undeniable/. The time to fight is now, because Progressivism is becoming the State Civic Religion if not already.

Downgrading religious freedom would cheapen our own lives

http://www.philly.com/philly/opinion/commentary/downgrading-religious-freedom-would-cheapen-our-own-lives-20170922.htmlHowever, the ability to live according to one’s conscience is now at risk. The recent contentious national debates over same-sex marriage, contraception, and transgender bathrooms have battered the very principle that protects conscience rights. The solution to these conflicts, some suggest, is to downgrade our First Amendment rights by limiting its expression only to our homes or houses of worship.

Ken Ham on how science confirms the Bible

Ken Ham on how science confirms the Bible

One of my biggest pet peeves is the attempt by atheists to use “science” to disprove the Bible. It’s unfortunate on many levels, not the least of which being Pascal’s Wager, but the strangest part is how much of science must be ignored in order to make the claim a Biblical worldview runs counter to modern science.

Some may object to this topic being part of mostly political news site, but it’s been more widely covered in recent years by liberal sites attempting to paint the Biblical worldview in a negative light, so it’s good to give equal time to the counterarguments.

There are better videos than Ken Ham’s discussion on the topic, but few are more easily understood. It’s well worth the hour.

Bettie Cook Scott is a racist politician. And she’s a Democrat.

Bettie Cook Scott is a racist politician And shes a Democrat

Racism is owned by the Republican Party. That’s the narrative the press and their handlers, the Democratic Party, wants America to believe. Someone forgot to get that memo to Michigan state representative Bettie Cook Scott.

Detroit Rep. Bettie Cook Scott on Asian opponent: ‘Don’t vote for the ching-chong!’

https://www.metrotimes.com/news-hits/archives/2018/08/16/detroit-rep-bettie-cook-scott-on-asian-opponent-dont-vote-for-the-ching-chongMore than a dozen community groups have called on Rep. Bettie Cook Scott (D-Detroit) to apologize for a series of racial slurs sources say she used to describe her primary election opponent, Rep. Stephanie Chang (D-Detroit).

Scott is alleged to have referred to Chang as “ching-chang” and “the ching-chong” to multiple voters outside polling precincts during last Tuesday’s election. She’s also said to have called one of Chang’s campaign volunteers an “immigrant,” saying “you don’t belong here” and “I want you out of my country.”

My Take

There are two important takeaways here. First is the hypocrisy surrounding Scott, a (formerly) rising star in the Michigan Democratic Party. If the comments she made were spoken by anyone other than a Democrat, the calls wouldn’t be for an apology. The press and social groups would be calling for her to step down and jump into a hole somewhere.

The second point is that in the real world, the one not seen through the lens of liberals and the media, racism exists everywhere. It is not owned by Republicans, conservatives, old people, white people, or any other classification. One can even make a valid argument that it’s no more prominent in the Republican Party than it is in the Democratic Party that supports groups like Antifa and Black Lives Matter.

Racism must be eliminated from society. That will never happen as long as so many people naively believe it only exists in the minds of certain people on the political right. It exists everywhere. Accept that and we can work to make it stop.

Our List of Demands for the Conservation of Liberty – Part II

Our List of Demands for the Conservation of Liberty Part II

Leftists incessantly issue lists of demands for the restriction of Liberty, It’s time to reverse the trend towards freedom.

This is our second part of our series of what we on the Pro-Liberty Right want for the preservation of Liberty. Part I is here.

6. The Left needs to stop trying to control private property with Intergalactic Background Checks. [aka ‘enhanced’ or ‘Universal’]

If there is one constant in the Liberty grabber universe, it’s that half of them are incessantly calling for gun confiscation while the rest deny they are calling for gun confiscation. They also love to parrot the line that it would be impossible to round-up everyone’s guns as a way of deflecting the issue. Except that those on the Pro-liberty side thought the same thing in the UK and Australia. Their Liberty grabber nightmare began with gun registration, under the solemn promise that it wouldn’t lead to gun confiscation. [Sound familiar?] Then of course at the next occasion of a serious crisis, this registration data was used for gun confiscation.

The fact is gun confiscation takes several precursor steps, the most critical being the assertion of government control over private property with Intergalactic Background Checks. Curiously enough, the Liberty grabbers tend to want language inserted into these laws mandating the reportage of lost or stolen firearms. Those types of rules are of primary importance only if the point of these measures is to turn them into a registration scheme.

7. The Liberty Grabber Left needs to stop pushing for even more controls on freedom.

It is also axiomatic that Leftists will exploit any opportunity to start ever-expansive controls over Liberty. The Left is a virtual fountainhead of new and more creative ways of clamping down on freedom. Having run out of new and improved ways of making it difficult, embarrassing and expensive to buy a firearm [While also lying about it at the same time] the Left has moved on to imposing controls over the purchase of ammunition. Then of course they also are making demands on how these are stored.

8. Stop attacking those who only wish to defend themselves.

There is nothing more loathsome than Leftists who excel at hurling insults at the country’s estimated 150 Million innocent gun owners. We’ve been labelled with almost everything from being Terrorists to baby killers for wanting nothing more than to be able to defend our families and ourselves.

Those who incessantly work overtime to demonize the innocent should keep one word in mind: Deterrence. The widespread ownership of weapons in most areas deters criminals since they don’t know who can fight back. This also explains why places with tight controls on Liberty tend to have higher crime rates. Curiously enough, for people who love the term ‘Commonsense’ they certainly don’t seem to well versed in it.

9. The Left needs to become educated about that which they want to control.

Granted, it might be too much to expect the Liberty Grabbers from knowing the difference between a direct impingement and gas piston actuation, but they should at least know the difference between a semi-auto and select fire. Nothing screams uninformed more than someone who confuses a clip with a magazine or some who uses them interchangeably in a claim that one can fire off 30 rounds in half a second.

Lack of knowedge is usually a negative in most cases, but in the realm of Liberty Control, the Leftists wear it as a badge of honour.

10. The Left needs to stop lying about guns.

We made these two separate items to prove a point. While some gaffes of the Liberty grabber elite are relatively harmless, there are those that are a danger to Liberty. It should go without saying that we live in an age in which the knowledge of the world is literally at one’s fingertips. There is no rational excuse for a lack of knowledge on the most rudimentary aspects of certain subjects. By the same token, there is no excuse for the propagation of deliberate false impressions and Lies particularly on the subject of self-defense.

One of the most infamous examples stems from the creation the phrase “Assault Weapon”:

The weapons’ menacing looks, coupled with the public’s confusion over fully automatic machine guns versus semi-automatic assault weapons—anything that looks like a machine gun is assumed to be a machine gun—can only increase the chance of public support for restrictions on these weapons.

The Takeaway.

The nation’s Left has gone on for years demanding compromises on the part of the Pro-Liberty Right. It is time that they step up to the plate and show they can be ‘bi-partisan’ for once. These steps aren’t really that extraordinary, in fact they merely bolster Liberty. Some Leftists still purport to be Liberal, supporting these items would go a long way in showing that is truly the case.
