ACLU Attempting to Criminalize Christianity: ‘Communism is the Goal’
Catholic Lane ^ | 3/25/11 | J. Matt Barber

Posted on 03/25/2011 2:21:00 PM PDT by Mary Kochan

An ACLU-crafted Consent Decree has been used as a weapon to threaten school district employees with fines and jail time for merely praying over a meal, and for exercising — even while away from school — their sincerely held Christian faith. You read that right. The ACLU is literally seeking to criminalize Christianity.

Well it would be good counsel for us to let them know that God IS watching and God IS listening. Nuff said.

For the moment, the ideological heirs of those that believe the flames of liberty must be extinguished and the aspirations of the individual curtailed for the alleged good of humanity have grown more sophisticated in their methods of getting the people to comply with their agenda. However, as Americans draw ever closer to the breaking point of just how much they are willing to put up with as frankly we are fast approaching the threshold where there is precious little left for the state to steal, we must ask with concern: will the aspiring despots among us resort to the violent tendencies of their philosophical progenitors in the attempt to bring about socialism’s ultimate triumph?

The person who wrote this article needs to take journalism 101. Your post correctly noted that the important part of this article was the paragraph in the last 1/3 of the piece. The stuff that was in the front was not news. It was a rehash of 60 years of history. It could have been included in front of any number of similar articles. One can only hope that the readers don’t get weary before they get to the newsworthy stuff.

And if God is a little busy taking care of the serious stuff— I will volunteer to stand in for Him -and stand against His enemies any day-cause He’s got my back-and all the country anywhere near my travels.
