The Age Of Intolerance

 

 

 

” Duck Dynasty’s Phil Robertson, in his career-detonating interview with GQ, gave a rather thoughtful vernacular exegesis of the Bible’s line on sin, while carefully insisting that he and other Christians are obligated to love all sinners and leave it to the Almighty to adjudicate the competing charms of drunkards, fornicators, and homosexuals. Nevertheless, GLAAD — “the gatekeepers of politically correct gayness” as the (gay) novelist Bret Easton Ellis sneered — saw their opportunity and seized it. By taking out TV’s leading cable star, they would teach an important lesson pour encourager les autres — that espousing conventional Christian morality, even off-air, is incompatible with American celebrity.

  Some of my comrades, who really should know better, wonder why, instead of insisting Robertson be defenestrated, GLAAD wouldn’t rather “start a conversation.” But, if you don’t need to, why bother? Most Christian opponents of gay marriage oppose gay marriage; they don’t oppose the right of gays to advocate it. Yet thug groups like GLAAD increasingly oppose the right of Christians even to argue their corner. It’s quicker and more effective to silence them.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Obama Continues War On Free Speech

 

 

The Obama Administration has declared war on the First Amendment — free speech. Groups that try to educate Americans about the Constitution have been put through the IRS wringer. The Justice Department scoured the emails and tracked the whereabouts of a television news reporter. These are just a couple of cases in which the Obama Administration turned its back on the First Amendment, and its protection of freedom of speech and the free exercise of one’s deeply held beliefs.

Furthermore, a number of military members have recently disclosed an alarming rise in First Amendment violations against military chaplains and members.

For example, one service member received a severe reprimand from his commanding officer for respectfully expressing his faith’s religious position in a personal religious blog. An Air Force officer was told that he could not keep a Bible on his desk because it might offend someone. And, an Army training presentation labeled Evangelical Christianity as an example of religious extremism, equating it to such organizations as the KKK and al-Qaeda. “

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Army Email Labels Christian Ministries as “Domestic Hate Groups”

 

 

“A U.S. Army officer sent an email to dozens of subordinates listing the American Family Association and Family Research Council as “domestic hate groups” because they oppose homosexuality — and warned officers to monitor soldiers who might be supporters of the groups.

“Just want to ensure everyone is somewhat educated on some of the groups out there that do not share our Army Values,” read an email from Lt. Col.  Jack Rich to three dozen subordinates at Fort Campbell in Kentucky. “When we see behaviors that are inconsistent with Army Values – don’t just walk by – do the right thing and address the concern before it becomes a problem.”

Tony Perkins, president of the Family Research Council, told Fox News he was disturbed by the contents of the email.

“It’s very disturbing to see where the Obama Administration is taking the military and using it as a laboratory for social experimentation  — and also as an instrument to fundamentally change the culture,” he said. “The message is very clear – if you are a Christian who believes in the Bible, who believes in transcendent truth, there is no place for you in the military.”

The Army denied there is any attack on Christians or those who hold religious beliefs.” “

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Rio Norte Line

In light of news reports that Guantanamo Bay may be closed with its occupants slated to be brought inside the borders of the USA, it is important to understand the POTENTIAL Definition of TERRORIST.  We now have official acceptance of a “Presidential Kill List” and indefinite DETENTION of terrorists “accepted” by OUR federal Government.  The ALLOWANCE of the suspension of habeus corpus WITHIN the borders of the USA during a time when WAR HAS NOT BEEN DECLARED, lays the groundwork for U.S. citizens to be “detained” and “held” by the mere addition of a name to some “security list” with NO RIGHT TO CONFRONTATION OF YOUR ACCUSER, OR EVEN BEING INFORMED OF THE CHARGES AND EVIDENCE AGAINST YOU !

What is a potential terrorist in the eyes of the current Administration?  The Homeland Environment Threat Analysis Division of the current administration’s Department of Homeland Security published their PERCEPTIONS…

Study: Black Americans Feel Less Empowered Under Obama Than They Once Did

 

 

  ” The study found that while the election of Obama initially boosted feelings of political empowerment among black Americans, those sentiments significantly faded in the years that followed—especially among conservative and religious blacks.

These two groups make up a large segment of the black population, with 56 percent of blacks identifying as “born again,” and 39 percent of blacks as “somewhat conservative,” according to the study.

“First we saw the ’empowerment effect,’ the boost that happens when a member of your group gets elected to an important political position,” says study author James L. Gibson, a professor of government and African-American studies at Washington University. Gibson’s findings are based on national surveys conducted between 2005 and 2011.”
