I've been telling my husband that for a week now. Something's coming!
Like I said, creepy, I want all the liquor stores on the border and all the go-go bars!
The Clinton's and their DNC cohorts would love to get Christians all in one state and do a Waco on them.
I think you're right. Unlike many here, I do believe our founding fathers intended separation of church and state. But I think the ACLU wants and has been achieving separation of nation and culture.
I think the Immigration Act of 1965 is a part of the problem, and it was clearly an intentional effort to bring those other than Judeo-Christians into our country. The only way to describe this change in our laws is "laboratory experiment."
In short, our elites didn't and don't know what they are doing. And they have no shame or regret. They were hoping that culture was synonymous with race; it simply isn't. Culture takes generations to assimilate. Culture entails values. Culture is often best transmitted with a catalyst of religion.
So yes, some civil disobedience is overdue. I would also ask those of you involved with churches to insist that they follow traditional teachings of morality. Despite my position that the marriage can and should be considered at a secular level as well as a religious one, with priests, pastors, reverends, and rabbis agreeing to break our civic laws, how can we expect our secular leaders to obey?
I don't think secession would be "running away" (we'd still be on the same soil), but a regrouping and reconstitution of Christian folks into a more effective existence to protect our beliefs/values.
Federal anti-discrimination laws would probably prevent de jure discrimination against secularists, but if a developer says "This town of 5,000 people is for God-fearing Christians. Our police will enforce strict blue laws, morality codes etc." I highly doubt non-Christians would choose to live in that town.
Once secluded in such a town, would it really matter if the state the town was located in permitted abortion or pornography or homosexual marriage... 50 miles away?? I highly doubt it would impact residents of such a town, or their children, at all.
Orthodox Jews and the Amish have been doing this for decades -- look at towns such as Monsey or Kiryas Joel in New York, for example. There's no reason Christians couldn't do the same.
Your going to have to do more than fight at the ballot box. Both the rats and the republicans are importing a population hostile to liberty. You will be outnumbered and have only 3 choices. Give up, seceede, or start shooting.
I disagree. Merely starting a commune or something would not address the problems Christians endure by the federal government.
Okay, so why don't you let me know where the government is forcing you to bow down to the emperor, as long as we are taking things in context. Or to follow another possible reason for rebellion, how is the government forcing you to be homosexual or aborting your babies, etc. ? The only exception to obeying the government is when they attempt to force you to do something sinful.
So your solution is to, what - pick up your toys and go home ?????? Is that what Jesus wants us to do ???
Since Jesus would like us to love the unborn children enough to protect them, then my solution would be to concentrate enough conservative Christians in one location (then secede from the union) so that abortion would be ended in that geographical part of the country where it now is allowed.
Insofar as picking up toys and going home, I'll leave that to the cowards who turn to failed solutions as unborn children are murdered by the millions.
And it is sinful not to protect innocent human life if you can do so (Rahab, Moses' mother, Jesus' parents, etc.). Loving your neighbor (even the unborn ones)is mandatory, and to love them is to protect them. I submit for your consideration a book that specifically deals with the ethics of what we're discussing in painstaking detail: Politically Correct Death by Christian Philosopher Francis Beckwith. (see especially his hypothetical dialogue between Socrates and a law enforcement officer regarding civil disobedience).
you can't be serious. There are no historical government worthy of rebellion? God sez shut up and take it, (Russians, Poles, Vietnamese, American Colonials, etc...)?
The wacko fantasy is to belief that everything will get better in our government as millions of babies are murdered, and to think of these millions of murders as not enough reason to divorce our government as the colonists had.
there is only so far this idiotic secession thing is going to go.
Funny. That's exactly what was said about those who wanted a Declaration of Independence in 1776.
