Let Freedom Ring

Sun, Nov. 10, 2013 Posted: 10:46 PM


The First Amendment

"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances."

As demonstrated during the recent government "shutdown", the current administration pays no regard to the U.S. Constitution -especially the First Amendment. Methods used during the "shutdown" abused power. From closing National Parks to threatening priests on military bases, the "shutdown" used scare tactics in attempt to intimidate the American people.

We must remember that the Founding Father established three branches of government. They are the legislative, executive, and judicial. In other words, it consists of Congress, the President, and the Supreme Court. The branches of government are to ensure check and balances so that no branch is too powerful. It is most disconcerting that President Obama and his administration certainly seem to disregard that. Their actions convey a "what they say goes" attitude.

Phyllis Schlafly has written a very insightful article exposing the truths about last month's government "shutdown". We urge you to read her article called Obama's Politics About Government Shutdown in its entirety here: http://www.unitetheusa.org/id104.html. It is important to be informed about the truth and know the facts about what has been happening.

No matter what the day may bring or what the headlines say, hold close to the fact that Jesus Christ is the King of Kings. He is the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow. The future rests in His hands. We must continue to pray and work hard to defend faith and freedom.

God bless you,
