Southern Baptists Attack Judge Roy Moore for Upholding Traditional Definition of Marriage



For years I’ve followed the career of Judge Roy Moore. He is the man who, as Chief Justice of the Alabama Supreme Court, defied the orders of a federal judge and kept the Ten Commandments in the Alabama Judicial Building. Judge Moore was ultimately removed from his post as Chief Justice as a result of his decision and his refusal to back down from it.

I admire a man with the courage of his convictions, who believes and acts on his beliefs, in this case that America is “one nation, under God”, no matter the cost.

The powers that be were unimpressed with the good judge’s stand on the Ten Commandments, and for obvious reason: they lack any comprehension of what the Constitution says, replacing it instead with their own interpretation of what the Constitution means.

That’s called progressivism.

Not one to take such a setback too seriously, in 2012 Roy Moore put his name in the ring for his former position of Chief Justice, which he won easily over Democratic candidate Bob Vance.

Judge Roy Moore is in hot water again, this time for maintaining his Christian belief in the Biblical and Alabama State definition of marriage, i.e. between one man and one woman. He’s catching flak from the oddest of places for this position, too.

Who knew that supposedly Bible-believing Christians would oppose the Biblical definition of marriage!

Russell Moore (no relation to Judge Roy Moore), the head of the Southern Baptist Convention’s public policy arm, “says Alabama judges who in good conscience cannot issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples, should resign instead of fighting the law while in office.”


The Southern Baptist Convention’s mission statement says,

As a convention of churches, our missional vision is to present the Gospel of Jesus Christ to every person in the world and to make disciples of all the nations.

Russell Moore appears to be clueless about the Gospel of Jesus Christ and the Bible, which defines marriage quite clearly in Genesis 2:21-24:

21 So the LORD God caused the man to fall into a deep sleep; and while he was sleeping, he took one of the man’s ribs and closed up the place with flesh.

22 Then the LORD God made a woman from the rib he had taken out of the man, and he brought her to the man.

23 The man said, “This is now bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh; she shall be called ‘woman, ‘ for she was taken out of man.”

24 For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and they will become one flesh.

That a leader of the Southern Baptist Convention is ignorant of this leaves me profoundly sad over the state of Southern Baptists.

Alabama is a conservative state where over 80%of the population voted for a law denying marriage to same-sex couples. Clearly the majority of people in Alabama feel the same as Judge Roy Moore: marriage is between one man and one woman.

It’s a shame the folks at the Southern Baptist Convention comprehend neither Alabama state law nor the Bible itself.

Attacking Judge Roy Moore for supporting both his own Christian beliefs and the laws of Alabama is bizarre for a supposedly Bible-believing Christian man heading a supposedly Bible-believing Christian organization of churches.

Literary Hypocrisy Tramples Freedom of Thought and Religion


Fred & Louise Hamilton Elementary School has what’s called “Read To Myself” time. One might reasonably expect that “Read To Myself” time is when you can, you know, read to yourself from any book you want. It’s your time, right?


While you can read “Hunger Games” at Fred & Louise Hamilton Elementary School during “Read To Myself” time, don’t you dare try reading The Bible. That simply will not be tolerated.

literary-hypocrisy-tramples-freedom-of-thought-and-religionAn unnamed female student attends Fred & Louise Hamilton Elementary School. A few weeks ago during “Read To Myself” time this child discovered the error of her ways when her book of choice, The Bible, was removed from her hands by her teacher.

The teacher felt The Bible was inappropriate for this girl to read yet had no issue with other children reading “Hunger Games”.

“They are letting them read the Hunger Games, that’s kids killing kids, why can’t she read the Bible,” said parent Jennifer Muse.

If The Bible is so “inappropriate” for a child to read, why is there a copy of The Bible in the school’s library?

Michael Berry, senior counsel with the Liberty Institute, says the alleged incident happened about two weeks ago.

“So if it’s appropriate for their own library, why on Earth would it not be appropriate for their own students?”

The hypocrisy is almost too much to bear!

The school board is “investigating the incident” and already issued a statement rationalizing the removal of The Bible from a student, saying books read during “Read To Myself” time must fit certain criteria they define as “just right“.

Un huh.

The family wishes to remain anonymous to avoid any retaliation, but contacted The Liberty Institute to pursue their case.

Diamond Rio’s Uplifting and Inspirational Song In God We Still Trust



For the religious among us here is a lovely song that’s been around a while but bears listening to again as we lead up to a US Presidential election where the values of the two candidates couldn’t be more clear.

In Obama we have a man who hates America and apologizes to the world for her success. In Romney we have a man who has character, integrity, moral fibre and a willingness to put America back on the road to recovery.

Just a thought to ponder as you listen to this lovely and inspiring song by Diamond Rio…

Pastor Terry Jones Barred Entry. So Much for Freedom of Speech in Canada…


Florida Pastor Terry Jones is best known for his outspoken opposition to islam.  He made international headlines when he burned a Koran two years ago on the anniversary of 9/11.   He also created and promoted “International Burn a Koran Day” as a way of protesting against radical islam.

Terry Jones was scheduled to debate Toronto imam on the film Innocence of Muslims outside Ontario’s legislature Thursday evening, but instead spent over 4 hours being searched and interrogated by Canadian Border Services Agency (CBSA) agents before being denied entry into the country.

Eventually both Terry Jones and his assistant, Wayne Sapp, were handed letters from CBSA explaining they would not be allowed into Canada.

“Dr. Jones’ letter said they were denying him entry to Canada because years ago in Germany, when he lived there, he was fined by the German government for using the title doctor,” said Fran Ingram of Stand Up America Now, the U.S. organization that promotes Mr. Jones.

The CBSA letter also demanded that Mr. Jones provide a criminal records check before attempting to  enter into Canada again.

While the CBSA is arguing they had valid reasons for keeping Pastor Jones out of Canada it just doesn’t pass the smell test.

CBSA cited a note from German officials who were upset that Jones used the designation “Dr.” from an institution they refused to recognize and a claim that they didn’t have enough information about an alleged breach of peace bond against Mr. Sapp as the reasons why they were not allowing the two into Canada.

Yeah, okay.  That’s sketchy at best, and disingenuous to say the very least.

For reasons unknown, the Canadian government was not interested in allowing a Christian Pastor to debate a muslim imam in Ontario.

Odd, since they were perfectly willing to allow radical muslim Dr. Bilal Philps to speak at an islamic conference in Calgary earlier this year. Philips has been kicked out of two countries (Germany & Kenya) and banned from two others (Britain & Australia) for his outspoken views on homosexuality, among other things.

But since Philips was born in Canada it’s completely okay for him to speak, right?  But an American Christian pastor? Forget about it.

I guess that means that Ann Barnhardt is also unwelcome in Canada since she is

1) a Christian, and
2) burned a Koran and posted the video on YouTube.

It would seem that Freedom of Speech is based, not on our Charter of Rights and Freedoms, but on which religion you happen to preach.

Islam 1, Christianity 0.

How very open-minded of the Canadian government…

Freedoms: Yours Until They Are Stolen

People don’t give a whit about freedom as long as they naively believe the government is not goring their ox, which, they painfully discover with time, it was their own personal inalienable rights that were stealthily chipped away in silence until those freedoms no longer exist.

Lutheran Pastor Martin Niemöller

Frequently, freedom-lovers allude to the famous “First They Came For” passage that refers to the dark 1930s, when Nazi Fuhrer Adolf Hitler was stoking up a full head of steam for his relentless rampage to enslave and conquer the world.

The chilling quote which warns of the dire consequences awaiting those who do not speak up, was penned by Lutheran clergyman Martin Niemöller (see his biography on page 6 of Rights and Freedoms Bulletin #91, June 30, 2012)

“In Germany, they came first for the Communists, and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a Communist.
“Then they came for the Jews, and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a Jew.
“Then they came for the trade unionists, and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a trade unionist.
“Then they came for the Catholics, and I didn’t speak up because I was a Protestant.
“Then they came for me, and by that time, nobody was left to speak up.”

For some inexplicable reason man has a nasty habit of wanting to repeat history in the name of “progressivism”.

By inserting altered passages into the “First They Came For” theme that are appropriate to a present-day context, it is easy to see how the cunning globalists, through brainwashing techniques, are successfully managing to repeat history by stealing individual freedoms while the masses sleep.

Here are some examples:

First they came for the petroleum industry, and you didn’t speak up because you were against big business polluting and making profits.

Then they came for the fur industry, and you didn’t speak up because you weren’t a trapper whose livelihood depended on the markets and working on the land.

Then they came for the tobacco industry, and you didn’t speak up because you aren’t a smoker and hate those who are.

Then they came for the corporations’ rights to advertise and promote in print, electronically and on billboards or to sponsor whoever they choose, but you didn’t speak up because you don’t own a business.

Then they stripped the tobacco companies of their intellectual property rights, such as packaging designs and logos, but you didn’t speak up because you don’t own–and don’t intend to own–any copyrights or patents. (However, once it is established in precedent-setting law that the government can ban intellectual property, then it has the vehicle to use to confiscate any and all of an individual’s intellectual, personal and fee simple property.)

Then they did confiscate fee simple mineral claims, and you didn’t speak up because you’re not a miner or prospector whose livelihood depends on the land.

Then they came for the forestry industry, and you didn’t speak up because you’re not a logger whose livelihood depends on the land.

Then they told the farmers where and for how much to sell their grain, and you didn’t speak up because you’re not an agronomist.

Then they came for the farmlands, and you didn’t speak up because you’re not a farmer whose livelihood depends on the land.

Then they came for the ranchers who depend on land to run their herds, and you didn’t speak up because you don’t raise livestock.

Then they came for the firearms, and you didn’t speak up because you’re not a gun owner and don’t like those who are.

Then they came after the churches, and you didn’t speak up because you’re not a religious person.

Then they took away 5,000 people’s mailing addresses in one town, and you didn’t speak up because you still had your postal address and the post office wasn’t losing your cheques and personal letters.

Then they passed one piece of evil legislation, treaty and policy after another through the parliamentary factories and United Nations Councils that dictate what you can and cannot do with your property, how you will behave, what you can speak and write, what you can eat, wear and own, where you can live, and what kind of light bulbs you can use, and you didn’t speak up because you weren’t paying attention.

Then they came forward with unfounded accusations and charged innocent people unjustly in the courts, and you didn’t speak up because you selfishly didn’t care what they did to somebody else as long as it wasn’t you who was being persecuted and prosecuted.

One day, they will surely come for you and your mind, intellectual, personal and real property, land, business, home, vehicles, money, and other valuables — even your children — then they’ll go for your soul, which they will conquer because you aren’t a spiritual person.

By then, nobody will be left to speak up in your defence.

You get the idea how the demonizing game works.

As Niemöller warned, people cannot rely on others to fight their fight.

You and you alone are personally responsible for vigilance in protecting your freedoms which are only yours until you let somebody else come along and steal them from you.

Yours in Liberty,

Jane Gaffin — Whitehorse, Yukon

Athiests won’t feed the football team but they don’t want anyone else feeding the team either

Ridgeland High School Panthers Football Logo

Don’t you just love the whining morons who complain that a church is doing something even though the whiners won’t do it themselves?

Ridgeland High School Panthers Football Logo

Take the case of churches in LaFayette, Georgia, providing meals to local football teams before games.  Here are people (yes, churches are in fact filled with people) doing a great thing (feeding young athletes).  I find it bizarre that feeding kids could possibly be deemed “unconstitutional”, yet that’s the word being bandied about by the lunatic fringe, aka the Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF).

The FFRF hates God and demands that the rest of the world fall in line with their opinion.  It would seem that Freedom of Speech applies only to the FFRF and nobody else.

Sorry… nobody’s buying that crap here.

Freedom of Religion is not Freedom FROM Religion, yet that’s what these idiots constantly promote.  Any mention of God or church even in the most distant way is an invitation to the FFRF to sue you.

Obviously these folks don’t have anything better to do, such as making meals for young athletes like those evil church folk do, and must instead mandate that nobody else make meals for the kids either.

“Taking public school football teams to church, even for a meal, is unconstitutional,” FFRF attorney Andrew Seidel wrote in a letter to the district. “This program is an egregious violation of the Establishment Clause and must cease immediately.”

Seidel said taking school children to churches and having ministers “present the Gospel of Jesus Christ” and having the food blessed “shatters the protections the First Amendment put in place.”

In other words… How dare churches feed young football players?!?!  It oughta be a crime!!!

How very… enlightened of them.

Sometimes Profoundly Stupid Actions Have Consequences… Imagine That Adam M. Smith!


Adam M. Smith isn’t normally a stupid person.  He was the chief financial officer for a very large company up until just the other day when they fired him for his incredibly bad judgment and, well, plain rudeness to a Chick-Fil-A employee at a drive-thru in Tucson, Arizona.

Adam M. Smith was so profoundly stupid to not only videotape his rude and abusive diatribe, but also to post it on YouTube for the entire world to see!

In his video (below) Adam M. Smith expresses his displeasure with Chick-Fil-A president Dan Cathy’s [allegedly] hate-filled comments to Baptist Press.  He hasn’t a clue what those comments were, of course, but that’s entirely beside the point.

Here’s what Dan Cathy actually said:

“We are very much supportive of the family – the biblical definition of the family unit. We are a family-owned business, a family-led business, and we are married to our first wives. We give God thanks for that.”

Not only did he NOT mention gay marriage, he took a pretty good shot at heterosexual folks instead.  His family takes the institution of marriage seriously and as a result the members of his family are all married to their first wives.  That’s very unlike the rest of the nation where divorce rates run well over 50% and second marriages are the norm.

Ever looking for a Christian to scapegoat, the Lame-Stream Press went wild and declared that Dan Cathy hates gays, that Dan Cathy is homophobic, and that Dan Cathy is filled with hate.

All because he said,

“We are very much supportive of the family – the biblical definition of the family unit.”

Oh the horror!

Christian University wants Christian employees? Oh the horror!


Can you imagine a media uproar over a Jewish university wanting to employ Jewish people?  Or a Muslim university wanting to employ Muslims? Of course not.  So why all the uproar over a Christian university wanting to employ practicing Christians?

The answer, of course, is pretty simple.  Christianity is currently the only religion that it is politically correct to slander and abuse.

The Bible makes clear a set of rules for living.  You may have heard of them.  They’re called the Ten Commandments.  Expecting Christian employees to adhere to them as best they possibly can on this mortal coil while working at a Christian university isn’t a stretch.  In fact it actually makes sense.

“Imagine that, a Christian university wants to promote Christian values…..weird,” wrote Heather Harrison.

I practically laughed out loud when I read the comments of McKinley Starks, identified as an openly homosexual student at Shorter University.

“How can a self-proclaimed Christian university come out with a document that is not Christ-like at all?  I feel that Shorter, the GBC, the Board of Trustees, and/or whoever can do what they want to the school. It’s their school, but I cannot personally attend a school so full of hate.”

He was referring to the Personal Lifestyle Statement that staff are required to sign and uphold if they want to work at Shorter University.

That document basically says the University wants its employees to be practicing Christians who attend a local church.  Describing the document as “not Christ-like at all” is laughable, unless you can find some way to claim that Christ himself had nothing to do with the Ten Commandments.

“We have a right to hire only Christians,” President Don Dowless stated. “I think that anybody who adheres to a lifestyle that is outside of what the biblical mandate is and of what the board has passed, including the president, would not be allowed to continue here.”

I’m not the only one who agrees with Shorter University’s stand on this issue.  Joe Coffey commented on the original story saying how proud he was of the stand Shorter President Don Dowless is making.

Religious Intolerance invades Nova Scotia School


William Swinimer’s story shocks me, not because I can’t believe it happened, but because of how the vice-principal of Forest Heights Community School in Chester Basin, N.S. characterized William’s T-shirt.

The moronic school bureaucrat called the T-shirt offensive and was nothing more than “hate talk.”

The language on this so-called “offensive” T-shirt?

“Life is Wasted Without Jesus”

Yeah, that just screams of hatred, doesn’t it?

Perhaps in the minds of idiots it does, but anyone with the common sense God gave a gnat will comprehend that William Swinimer is merely exercising his Right to Freedom of Speech and his Right to Freedom of Religion.

I guess he should have worn a T-shirt promoting one of the “approved” religions, although the vice-principal didn’t seem willing to identify which religions would be okay to have on a T-shirt.

That said, I can’t imagine any student would have been suspended from school for 5 days if they had, for example, worn a T-shirt that said “Life is wasted without Allah.”  No, the school would never have dared attack a Muslim student in this fashion.

Interestingly, the school’s Staff List has been removed from the school’s website.  A web search shows that it existed at until recently but has since been taken down.

I guess the vice-principal is willing to issue a suspension for wearing a T-shirt but the he or she is too cowardly to stand up and express his or her rationale for it.  Even worse, the school board is protecting this yahoo by removing the staff list from the internet.

Gotta love gutless God-hating bureaucrats.

What I do love about Willian Swinimer is his response to the stupid edict of the so-far unnamed and protected vice-principal.

“I believe this is worth standing up for — it’s not just standing up for religious rights, it’s standing up for my rights as a Canadian citizen; for freedom of speech, freedom of religion. I don’t think this is right.”

Swinimer has worn the Jesus T-shirt every day since his series of in-school and at-home suspensions began and will wear it again when he returns to school after his 5-day at-home suspension ends.

Do you think this bureaucritter will have the backbone to carry out his or her threat to suspend William for the rest of the school year for wearing his Jesus shirt again?

If the comments of South Shore Regional School Board superintendant Nancy Pynch-Worthylake are anything to go by, they probably will.

Freedom of Speech? Not for Christian Pastors in Alberta…


As the lunatic left tries desperately to find some way of slowing down the Wildrose electoral juggernaut, such bastions of tolerance as Warren Kinsella and the Edmonton Journal have declared that pastors have no right to actually write about what they believe.

This is hardly surprising from either source, both of whom believe tolerance should only be applied to their views, not anyone else’s.  Freedom of Speech rights only apply to left-wing ideas and pastors such as Edmonton’s Allan Hunsperger should, well, just shut up.

It’s typical of the left.  Tolerance is a one-way street, that one way being their way, of course.  Any opposing views are nothing more than hate.  The very title of Mr. Kinsella’s post, Danielle Smith defends hate, made that very clear.

Hating God is completely okay, but expressing the Bible’s (and God’s) viewpoint that sin will place you in Hell for eternity is somehow inherently evil and hate-filled, if the likes of Kinsella are to be believed.

It matters not whether the sin is homosexuality, adultery, lust or any other made clear in the Bible, any Pastor who would preach approvingly of that which God hates (sin) isn’t much of a preacher.

The line that seemed to so offend both Kinsella and the Edmonton Journal is this:

“You see, you can live the way you were born, and if you die the way you were born then you will suffer the rest of eternity in the lake of fire, hell, a place of eternal suffering.”

This statement is true of every single one of us despite the fact it was written specifically addressing homosexuality.  There is not a human being alive that can claim to be sinless and therefore un-deserving of that lake of fire.

Imagine that… a preacher writing about sin and salvation.

I’m shocked!

If Christians do not believe in self-defense, somebody forgot to tell the good folks at South Side Freewill Baptist Church


South Side Freewill Baptist Church is located in the town of Boiling Springs, North Carolina.  It’s a small town of just 4,301 according to the town’s website.

One of the debates that will rage on until the end of time is whether or not the Bible teaches self-defense. Personally I believe it does, but that’s not the point.  It’s not in debate at all for the parishioners of South Side Freewill Baptist Church.

jesse-gates When 38-year-old Jesse Gates kicked in the doors of the church during their Sunday worship service and pointed his shotgun at Reverend Henry Guyton everyone was shocked and terrified.

Aaron Guyton, a concealed weapons permit holder and Reverend Guyton’s grandson, decided that this was the perfect opportunity to put his beliefs on self-defense into action.

Guyton held Gates at gunpoint while fellow parishioners disarmed Jesse Gates and held him until police could arrive. Reverend Guyton was the man who actually plucked the shotgun from Gates’ hands.

Nobody was injured and no shots were fired, a fact that’s consistent with the vast majority of defensive uses of firearms.

Sheriff Chuck Wright made a point of praising Aaron Guyton for having his concealed weapons permit and being willing to use his firearm to defend himself, his fellow parishioners and his grandfather.

“We’re very fortunate we didn’t have gruesome scenes to work there,” Sheriff Chuck Wright said. “I like the fact that a concealed weapons permit holder was prepared to protect the worshippers.”

The United Nations’ War on Christianity


A cultural showdown is in production on the world stage against the values of the estimated 2.1 billion who belong to the world-dominant Christian religion.

To establish a global government that reigns with uncompromising command-and-control power over every aspect of human life–family, children, business, money, food, education, home, dress, religion, etc.–the United Nations must first conquer Christianity to gain complete authority over the individual followers.

Collecting 192 Marxist member nations under the umbrella of the United Nations–all willing to do the UN’s dirty work–translates into waging a gigantic holy war against Christianity.

The biggest obstacle thwarting the UN’s insatiable ambition is that Christians hold to a doctrine of inalienable God-given rights of freedoms, liberties and religion and the staunch belief that church and state will remain separate.

The principle of separation renders governments powerless to achieve the UN’s goal when a church refuses to denounce God and engage in a satanic private-public partnership with the Establishment, unlike the Islamic countries where religion has an umbilical attachment to the state.

To date, these factors have frustrated the UNbelievers at the United Nations, a cult controlled by a bunch of psychopathic Illuminati lunatics, from replacing the indomitable Christian religion with an irrational One World Religion that uses the UN Charter as its bible.

Can you get fired for wearing a symbol of your faith to work? Only if it’s a Christian symbol…


The government of Britain is about to argue before the European Court of Human Rights that because the cross or crucifix is not a “requirement” of the Christian faith, wearing a cross to work is grounds for dismissal from your job.

Wearing symbols of other religions, such as a turban or a hijab, are (of course) exempt from this absurd religious symbol restriction.   Wearing a cross will offend people, but wearing a turban or hijab or some other article of religious significance will not.  That’s the logic at play here, and it’s ridiculous.

Can you imagine going to work one day and being told that if you do not remove your cross that you would be fired?  Can you imagine the same threat being used against a Sikh, a Muslim or a Jew?

What’s next?  Will the British Government tell Jewish men that they can no longer wear a yarmulke in public?  They wouldn’t dare.

How about Wiccans or Celtic Druids?  Shall we ban them from wearing symbols of their religion and fire them if they don’t toe the line as well?

I say again, these idiots wouldn’t dare.

Freedom of Religion just doesn’t mean what it used to, that’s for sure.  Britain, the land that gave us our Common Law heritage of Rights and Freedoms through the Magna Carta and other historic documents, clearly has lost her way.

Bishop of Peterborough Donald Allister said, “It is a duty of a Christian to be public about their faith as well as private, and that is clear New Testament teaching.”

The Nanny State is in full swing in Britain and whatever nonsense goes on in Britain inevitably makes its way across the Atlantic to North America.

God save us all from this politically correct nonsense!

Individual Rights: What’s the big deal?


I am in the middle of an email conversation with a colleague who professes to believe in the Individual Rights and Freedoms of all Canadians.  I say “professes”, because this individual seems unable to grasp the concept of Individual Rights at all.

This individual asked a small group of us whether or not we each individually believed in the Supremacy of God.  Now before any atheists or the God-hating among us runs away, I would urge you to read the rest of this article.  You just might be surprised.

First of all, it’s a great question. However, by demanding an answer to that question from a group of individuals who believe strongly in the Rights of the Individual, that tells me the person asking the question and more importantly, demanding an answer to it, hasn’t got a clue what an individual right really is.

Every human being is born with the freedom to believe what they choose about the Supremacy of God, or even if there is a God in the first place.

Believing what we want about God is our Individual Right.

Whether I like it or not, and whether I agree with them or not.

We, as individuals, are certainly under no obligation to answer any demands others may have about what we do or do not believe.

To insist that I or anyone else is obligated to answer a question simply because someone asked it is, in my opinion, insane.

The Hypocrisy of Allowing Islamic Prayer in Schools


Religious Tolerance is such a misunderstood concept.  It was meant to mean we should be tolerant of all religion, yet it was perverted a long time ago.  That perversion has only become more extreme in the post-9/11 era.

Take, for example, the case of Mr. Jody McLoud.  In 2000, Mr. McLoud was the Principal of Roane County High School in Kingston, Tennessee.

The United States Supreme Court had recently ruled that prayer in school was against the law.  Ludicrous, of course, but the highest court in the land is often out of touch with reality.

In their ruling Santa Fe Independent School District v. Doe, they said:

The Court bases its conclusion that the true purpose of the policy is to endorse student prayer on its view of the school district’s history of Establishment Clause violations and the context in which the policy was written, that is, as “the latest step in developing litigation brought as a challenge to institutional practices that unquestionably violated the Establishment Clause.”

In a word… Bullshit.

Outside of the Second Amendment, the so-called Establishment Clause of the First Amendment is probably the most misunderstood and misapplied Amendment of the US Constitution!

The wall of separation is not in law (in principle, not practice) nor Constitution.  It WAS in a letter – Thomas Jefferson’s Jan 1, 1802 letter, called the Wall of Separation Letter, was to the Danbury Baptist Association.

The National Anthem BANNED… at Indiana’s Goshen College?


As bizarre as it sounds, Indiana’s Goshen College has banned the playing of the American National Anthem for being “too violent.”  Singing the words to the Anthem was banned a year ago, and now they have even banned playing the music.

The Goshen College Board of Directors told College President Jim Brenneman to

“find an alternative to playing the National Anthem that fits with sports tradition, that honors country and that resonates with Goshen College’s core values and respects the views of diverse constituencies.”

How remarkable….

Mennonites, a religious group of Dutch/German descent, that, in times of persecution, flees across continents and oceans to places of safe haven.

Once arriving in their new homes they live on the fringes of mainstream society not really being full participants. Here in Canada and the United States, making every opportunity available to avoid full societal participation, taxation and military service, but, conspicuously, availing themselves of every other benefit a free democracy has to offer.
