Okay, folks, what more can the government take away from us? They have taken God out of the school, want to take God off the back of our money, and now we cannot even have a day representing what this country was based upon. Where are you Christians?
Someone told me one day that they didn't have anything to do with politics. You'd better, or we'll be restricted to what we teach in our churches. We will not be able to teach the Word of God. I am so afraid of what this country is coming to.
How did this happen? This is my theory, not anyone's. Just mine. I believe we are afraid to stand up for the truth. We sugar-coat it to make it sound good. We forget to tell our children the little word, "no." We let them do more or less what they want to and never reprimand them. We as parents, have lowered the gap. We do not inspect laws that are being voted upon until it's too late. We let other people in government do what they want, not what their constituents want. We are letting atheists and homosexuals convince us and our children that what they believe is right, and the Bible is not to be believed. We allow all kinds of programs to be on television that encourage foul language, homosexual acts, sex before marriage and many other things. Are we asleep or just ignorant?
I have copied below something we all should be interested in. Religious freedom. This is from Family Research Council, http://www.frc.org/alert/pentagon-consultant-no-gospel-witness-for-chaplains. I can only ask, what will be next? Go to the above website and sign a petition to keep this from happening. I just signed it. This is taking things too far.

The very troops who defend our religious freedom are at risk of having their own taken away.
Last week, anti-Christian and left-wing activists met at the Pentagon with military officials to discuss pressing issues in the military. What issues would be of such importance to gain such a high-level hearing?
According to these far-left consultants, religion is one of the chief problems plaguing our troops. As theWashington Post reported, some are saying that "religious proselytizing" is at the top of the list of problems in the armed forces -- even on par with sexual assault.
As a result of such complaints from the left, the Air Force has -- according to the Post --published, but not yet distributed a new document with the directive that leaders of all levels (including chaplains) may not "promote their personal religious beliefs to their subordinates or to extend preferential treatment for any religion." The penalty these secularists are seeking for those who don't comply with their view of religious speech is court-martial.
If this policy goes forward, Christians within the military who speak of their faith could now be prosecuted as enemies of the state. This has the potential to destroy military recruiting across the services as Americans realize that their faith will be suppressed by joining the military.
Our brave troops deserve better. If chaplains and other personnel are censored from offering the full solace of the Gospel, there is no religious freedom in the military.
Please join me in signing the petition to Secretary Hagel urging him to protect the religious freedom of our troops - and not to proceed with the purge of religion within the ranks called for by anti-Christian activists.
I believe if we all stick together, we can defeat these wrongs. Pray and work to do that.
