The Religious Freedom Restoration Act of 1993.
What happened? The majority of our population ignored God.
What happened? The idea of religious freedom was used against a sacrament of the left.
They were fine when it was a natter of letting Indian tribes use peyote in ceremonies and rituals, but a Christian use it to resist compulsory participation in abortificants? Completely unacceptable to them.
What happened? The Rats and many Pubbies lost their way and showed themselves to be a bunch of godless, cloven hooved heathens. Damn their souls.
Read your Bible.
None of what is happening is surprising in the least.
Let’s get real, here. The Dems voted for it because they thought it was about Indians using Mescaline.
The Left still defends religious freedom for Muslims. And only Muslims.
The founders never intended Congress to be a lifetime career choice.
What happened? Get today’s news as written 2,000 years ago....
2 Timothy 3: This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.
2 For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,
3 Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,
4 Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;
5 Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.
6 For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts,
7 Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.
8 Now as Jannes and Jambres withstood Moses, so do these also resist the truth: men of corrupt minds, reprobate concerning the faith.
9 But they shall proceed no further: for their folly shall be manifest unto all men, as their’s also was.
10 But thou hast fully known my doctrine, manner of life, purpose, faith, longsuffering, charity, patience,
11 Persecutions, afflictions, which came unto me at Antioch, at Iconium, at Lystra; what persecutions I endured: but out of them all the Lord delivered me.
12 Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution.
13 But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived.
14 But continue thou in the things which thou hast learned and hast been assured of, knowing of whom thou hast learned them;
The 1960’s happened.
And all the Hubert Humprhies and Scoop Jacksons died off, allowing the SDS crowd to seize control of that party.
To libs and socialists and democrats Government is the Almighty God and the first commandment in the Liberal Bible is... Thou Shalt Have No Other Gods Before Him/Her/It!
You are right and it will get worse. Best to keep our eyes on and our hope in God.
Leftists are liberal only when in a minority position, demanding tolerance only when they would lose to intolerance. Once they reach dominance, they drop the liberal/tolerant pretext and go full-on mob-supported authoritarian.
Prayer for the Protection of Religious Liberty
O God our Creator,
from your provident hand we have received
our right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
You have called us as your people and given us
the right and the duty to worship you, the only true God,
and your Son, Jesus Christ.
Through the power and working of your Holy Spirit,
you call us to live out our faith in the midst of the world,
bringing the light and the saving truth of the Gospel
to every corner of society.
We ask you to bless us
in our vigilance for the gift of religious liberty.
Give us the strength of mind and heart
to readily defend our freedoms when they are threatened;
give us courage in making our voices heard
on behalf of the rights of your Church
and the freedom of conscience of all people of faith.
Grant, we pray, O heavenly Father,
a clear and united voice to all your sons and daughters
gathered in your Church
in this decisive hour in the history of our nation,
so that, with every trial withstood
and every danger overcome—
for the sake of our children, our grandchildren,
and all who come after us—
this great land will always be "one nation, under God,
indivisible, with liberty and justice for all."
We ask this through Christ our Lord.
DNC Convention, 2012, they voted on Jerusalem, on Jews, and on God http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cncbOEoQbOg - and they clearly voted against God. They actually booed God and only got Him into their platform through vote fraud on the third voice ballot.
That’s right. For those who did not see the DemonRAT convention, ....I only saw this portion of it...; when the RATs put up a verbal vote for taking God out of their platform, the “Nays” resounded much louder that the “YEAs”. When they thrice asked for a vote, the platform was booed...and when...for political reasons...they decided to leave God in the RAT platform...the crowd erupted in a very loud BOOing.
The RATs are Godless IMO
I VERY much remember watching that and was incredulous. I knew then that the Democrats were pretty much being manipulated by an evil force that most of them no longer even believe exists. It was the death knell of the Democrat Party...and I hope I live to see it die politically. I pray for Truth to be triumphant in the souls of those who support the party.
What happened is very simple the idea of religious freedom got in the way of leftist ideology to the point that it interfered with the lefts most holy sacrament abortion. Because this has happened as far as doctrinaire leftists are concerned religious freedom has to sacrificed . Can’t have any resistance to the ideology espoused by the party of slavery ,segregation ,socialism & sodomy.
