Because freedom can't protect itself
At some point in history, we seem to have lost the passion for ALL of the human rights. This country was formed to annihilate religious tyranny, (among other things), and instead give all the people the absolute FREEDOM and RIGHT to worship in any way they see fit, as long as these faith expressions did not interfere with the freedoms and rights of others. Now, the people who are of the 'faiths' of the originating founders, have found themselves the targets of discrimination, of legal harassment, violent assault, government-forced business practices, and other human-behavioral maladies as printed in news articles around the country.
This, all because of the 'great' work of the ACLU, Obama, and others who continue to fight to detract from the positivity of a TRUE faith-based life; the kind of life that has historically contributed the MOST positive things to this society and culture. This is a trend that can be observed both in biblical and secular historical reference. At NO time has the radical Islamic influence been positive in ANY SOCIETY OR CULTURE, yet, those who represent us , especially at the executive level of our government, have catered to, or even WELCOMED this illicit group into the fold of power. It is a regrettable trend for which a severe retribution shall be inflicted. A famous leader, (Franklin) says that a society that will sacrifice some freedoms to save others, deserves neither! When we sacrifice our right, as a church leader, to hire anyone we choose into our church staff, or when we sacrifice our right to choose which company will provide us with healthcare administration and services, or when we sacrifice our right to public expression of Christian faith, we have set about on a path that will lead us to the ultimate loss of the rights and freedoms that define the United States of America.
Whenever the citizens of any society have completely lost touch with their creator, their true humanity, or respect for the truly precious essence that is the gift of life itself, and have lost respect for each other, then we have a society of evil and hopelessness that will ultimately be overrun with the kind of tyranny never before seen in Earth's history!
