Beebe pagan temple: Town has temple banned for not believing in Christian God
Examiner.com ^ | June 19, 2014

Posted on 06/19/2014 4:57:06 PM PDT by Hugin

Yet once the mayor and other neighbors learned the news that this church as in fact a pagan place of worship and not one that pays tribute to God the Father (of Christian religion), negative issues immediately arose. According to the press release, Dahl had also allegedly spoken with city officials in Beebe about temporarily renting a part of a local park for a religious celebration. While it seemed that everyone was behind it at first, as soon as word got out that the event would actually be the 12th annual Arkansas Pagan Pride, Dahl claimed he was told he would need to pay full price to use the small area and could not have any profiting sales or items of any kind.

News Max then adds that a formal letter regarding the soon-to-be banned Beebe pagan temple was sent to their home. Apparently, the letter was a letter of declination, saying that they would not be provided a permit to market or even open the temple. The worst piece about this information, adds Dahl, is that he and his wife hadn’t even applied for a permit yet with the Arkansas town.

Now everytime a story comes out about muslims slaughtering Christians somewhere in the world, liberals will pull out this story and say “see? it works both ways.”

It’s clearly a violation of the 1st Amendment.

“12th annual Arkansas Pagan Pride”

Can we have a moratorium on all this damn ‘pride’. Pride is a SIN. What’s next? Gluttony and wrath parades. Stop the damn parades!

This is just some silly blog crap aka “Examiner” but if it turned out to be true, the “temple” will end up owning that town. What part of the first amendment don’t they understand?

Christianity is very special it is the religion of the common person in this country. But, there are others as well. Pagans should have the same right to invoke their Gods as any other religion. Our country was founded on traditional Christian virtues and one of them is enshrined in the first amendment.

If Muslims can practice their religion in America, what’s wrong with a new religion?

I looked at their website. They seem to be very short on religious teaching of any sort, and very long on selling stuff.

Rename to Gay Pride like all the other pagans in other cities and they’ll be approved and good to go.

Muslims expect the world to bow to their religion.

Pagans do not, and had to sue the federal government, because of their unique,
‘no tittular head’, setup.

Muslims can only point to 1963, as the year of
an American office being established.

American Pagans can point to the Colonial year of 1640, and in Connecticut, to society’s reaction,
many years before the town of Salem gained
it’s so-called notoriety.
