Stifling Free Speech the Old Fashioned Liberal Way

1st Amendment of the United States Constitution:

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.

I believe it says freedom OF speech, not freedom FROM speech. If you are offended by what I am saying, you have a right not to listen. Simply walk away. If I don’t like what is on television, do I sue the network which airs the programming? No. I simply change the channel.

These liberals (the article originate in the UK, but there are similar examples in the US, and will be more, I’m sure.) who move into a neighborhood where a church has been for nearly half a century worshiping the same way virtually the entire time, and then complain about the noise are blatantly gaming the system. They are just like idiots who move into a neighborhood under the approach/departure path of a large airport that has been there for decades, and then complain about the noise. The argument is at best frivolous.  If we refer to what the Bible calls “sin” as “sin,” then according to liberals we are guilty of hate crimes. If we endorse candidates from the pulpit (who most likely won’t be liberal), then churches risk losing their tax exempt status. Now they will stand right outside our doors and complain that they can hear us and it bothers them.

This is part of why liberals and communists want to remove God religion from the public square.  Liberals just can’t stand the concept of “sin.”  If no one tells them what they are doing is wrong, they can feel better about themselves.  The other part of the process is the destruction of the moral underpinning of society.  The communists have always known that a populace with no moral foundation is easy to control.  You can see the fruits of their labors in the dumbing down of our society and the emergence of moral relativism, or the concept of the “gray area.”  In reality, EVERYTHING is either right or wrong.  It is man’s lack of understanding of where the demarcation line between the two lies that makes it seem “gray” to many.  Once you see something as gray, you are open to manipulation by proponents of EITHER side of the argument.

If you are a Christian, you should be encouraging your pastors to preach the word boldly, and you should be standing shoulder to shoulder with him to resist the onslaught of liberal attacks.  If not, you will soon lose both your freedom of speech, and your freedom to exercise worship in the religion of your choice.

Even if you are not a Christian, and you don’t go to church, the same still applies to you.  You must protect the freedom of speech and exercise of religion for all (What about islam, you ask? When an entire religion teaches that you or I must be converted or killed, then the protection no longer applies.  The freedom of your fist ends at the tip of my nose).  If one of us loses these precious rights, all of us will.  Whether they be lions, liberals, or muslims, if you appease them by sacrificing your brother, it just delays the inevitable.  They’ll be coming for you next.

FAITH UNDER FIRE

Newest attack on Christianity: Just shut up!

Noise ordinances latest weapon against churches

A Christian legal organization in the United Kingdom is reporting a skirmish victory in the latest war against Christians and their churches – the demand that they essentially be silent in their worship.

Cases have cropped up in recent months both in the U.K. as well as the United States in which governmental bodies have demanded that Christian groups essentially be silent – so that no one can hear their worship.

The Christian Legal Centre in the U.K. is reporting a victory in a battle, although the war remains.

The group said this week there has been a “last-minute out of court settlement” that will allow a 600-member church in London to continue its worship.

The Lambeth Council previously had issued a noise abatement notice to the All Nations Centre in Kennington which prevented the church from using any amplification for its worship music and its pastor’s preaching.

No allowance was made for any of the seniors in the congregation, some of whom have hearing difficulties, officials said.

The noise abatement order was issued last fall without warning or discussion, shortly after the church, which has been in the same location for more than 45 years, began to publicize its services in its own neighborhood.  (This is just like idiots who buy a house under the approach/departure path to a large airport that has been there for decades, and then complain about the noise.  Why do we have to suffer for their stupidity?  This is about freedom OF speech, not freedom FROM speech.)
