Article [I] (Amendment 1 – Freedom of expression and religion) 13
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.
The above is a direct quote of our sacred Constitution. I say scared because these rights are God-given and not man-given. There are men that have tried taking the common man’s rights which has caused great and terrible havoc on humanity.
This month we in California have seen the incredibly ignorant way the governor has been stripping away the right of all the people. In his warped mind he thinks he is helping out the little guys. But he and the rest of the leaders cannot see past their noses. In adding more foolish laws like this California AB2943 and making it sound like it’s a great idea.
Here are the reason why this bill and any other bill like this is wrong:
~ First off– I oppose any addition to any laws that take away rights in order to stop people from their God-given Faith and free speech. Leave it to California to try to do something like this.
~ Secondly, I oppose this type of bullying not just because I am a Christian pastor but as a citizen, husband, father and grandfather. This bill is horribly shortsighted and does nothing for the First Amendment.
∼ Thirdly, by trying to stop a group of people from “hurting” another group, Jerry Brown is doing the same exact thing that he is “trying to fix” and that to me is foolish and shortsighted.
~ Fourthly, anytime you start taking away God-given rights, you start on a very slippery slope.
A slope that ends up with Hitler, Lenin, Stalin and Mao types. Just those good “humanitarian” men I’ve just mentioned, are responsible for killing roughly 132 million people.
This is a considerable number killed by men who had great intentions but little by little, took away people’s rights, until they were the all-powerful dictators we know them to be.
To Christians, it is time to wake up from the comfy slumber we are in! What must we do?
- Wake up from the slumber!
- Pray and fast for California, and our country.
- Pray for those lost souls in leadership.
- For all to come to the full knowledge of our Lord and Savior.
- Do something. Being saved is a verb…it takes action. A call to Christian action! (Click on this link )
- Pass the information on to others.
