    KILLING RELIGIOUS FREEDOM IN AMERICA Much has been made about the Transgender Day Of Visibility falling on Easter Sunday March 31, 2024. The left wants us to think that it falls on every March 31st and it just happened to fall on Easter this year. What they dont tell you is that although this holiday has been unofficially recognized since 2009 it was Joe Biden that signed an executive order in 2021 officially declaring it a holiday but no one really knew that much about it until it the White House announced it with much fanfare a few day before this Easter 2024. Why transgenders need a day of visibility makes no sense to me because that is all we hear about these days. There are the other days on the calendar devoted to transgenders and promoting their visibility. International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia, and Biphobia, observed on May 17. International Drag Day is celebrated on July 16. International Pronouns Day is celebrated on October 17th. Transgender Awareness Week occurs in November. Transgender Day of Remembrance occurs on November 20th. Then if you throw in National Black HIV/AIDS Awareness Day, Aromantic Spectrum Awareness Week, whatever that is, National LGBT Health Awareness Week, Day of Silence, Lesbian Visibility Day, Harvey Milk Day, Pulse Night of Remembrance, Celebrate Bisexuality Day, LGBT History Month, National Coming Out Day, Spirit Day, Asexuality Awareness Week, Intersex Awareness Day, Intersex Day of Remembrance, and World AIDS Day.

    I would say the Alphabet Mafia is pretty well visible to the average American. Whether Joe Bidens proclamation honoring the Transgender Day Of Visibility was intended as a slight to Christians or not transgenderism is a demonic lie and of course satan is the father of all lies. Speaking to a group of men Jesus said “You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies” John 8:44. Christians make up a vastly larger percentage of the population than people who claim to be transgender but that doesnt matter to the Communists/Fascists in this country. We are the enemy. There has been a war between Christ and satan from before the foundation of the world when Christ expelled satan and his angels from heaven. Revelations 12:7 through 11 says 7 And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels, 8 And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven. 9 And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.

    10 And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night. 11 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death. |Satan being cast out of heaven| When satan deceived Adam and Eve he did it by appealing to their vanity. Genesis 3:5 “For God knows that when you eat from it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.” Because of mans sin we have been plagued little by gods like Karl Marx, Margaret Sanger, Woodrow Wilson, V.I. Lenin, Franklin Roosevelt, Saul Alinsky, Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, Bill Gates, George Soros and Joe Biden who think that they know what is best for the rest of us who have the common sense to know who God is and that we are not Him. The assault on religion picked up steam with the advent of Communism. A contemporary of Karl Marx was Mikhail Bakunin. He said that if God really existed, it would be necessary to abolish him. Bakunin said that religion enslaves, debases, and corrupts, and that all religions are cruel, all founded on blood.

    Bakunin liked satan however. He hailed him as the eternal rebel, the first freethinker and the emancipator of worlds. This is similar to Saul Alinskys praise of satan in the forward of his book Rules For Radicals. Alinsky called satan the very first radical...who rebelled against the establishment. Saul Alinsky had a huge impact on the political philosophies of Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama. Cardinal Fulton Sheen said that Communists have failed to convince the world that there is no God but they have convinced the world that there is a devil. Karl Marx said that Man makes religion, religion does not make man. Religion is the sigh of the oppressed creature, the heart of a heartless world, and the soul of soulless conditions. It is the opium of the people. V.I. Lenin compared religion to necrophilia, which is the perversion of having sex with dead people and he even compared it to a venereal disease. He said that there is nothing more abominable than religion. One of the goals of the Communist party was subverting the church. Manning Johnson, a black American Communist of the 1930s and 40s who later left the party and became a staunch anti-communist said that the party according to my knowledge and experience, realized that without subverting the millions of persons in church, revolution in the United States is unthinkable; it is impossible.

    For that reason a corps of trained persons was necessary who would be in a position to work successfully toward this end among the churchgoers. The foundation of American society has been based primarily on the strength of the family and the church. Both have been under assault by the left because if the family and church are destroyed people have nowhere to turn to other than the state and this is the goal of the Communist party because the state is their god. |Mikhail Balkunin| So we know full well that Communists hate Christianity and Christians. All we have to do is look back at how many Christians have been tortured and killed in the most hideous manner. I had a friend named Paul Coman who had been a Christian living in Romania during the Communist regime of Nicolae Ceau?escu. He was as brutal of a Communist that ever was. Paul was possibly the most dedicated Christian that I have ever known. He was arrested by the secret police and placed in a cell so crowded that he could not sit or lie down and the lights were kept on 24/7. He was savagely beaten and tortured. One method of torture they used on him was standing him in a hollowed out tree and bending him backwards. After he finished his jail sentence they dropped him off a few miles from home barely conscious and a living skeleton from malnutrition.

    He managed to crawl all the way home on his hands and knees where his family nursed him back to health. We became friends after he escaped to the United States. One day I took him on a tour of the Tennessee State Museum in Nashville. I was amazed when we toured the section displaying how the early settlers of Nashville lived in the late 1700s. He explained to me in detail what everything was used for because his country was so backward under Communism that their people were still using the same primitive tools that our ancestors in Americas pioneer days were using over 200 years ago. Paul was one of the millions of Christians persecuted by the Communists since the Bolshevik revolution in Russia 1917. Many were tortured so severely that they renounced their faith and their torturers did blasphemous things like forcing Christians to take communion using urine and human feces rather than wine and bread. One Christian in Romania named Florescu was beaten and prodded with red hot pokers. Starving rats were released into his cell and he had to continually fight them off. He had to watch as his 14 year old son was beaten in front of him. They wanted Florescu to renounce Christ and the father told his son that he wanted to give in because he couldnt take seeing him beaten anymore.

    Florescu said that he would do what they wanted him to do. The son responded Father, dont do me the injustice of having a traitor as a parent. Withstand! If they kill me I will die with the words Jesus and my fatherland. In a rage his captors beat his son to death splattering his blood all over the cell. Florescu survived but was both physically and mentally scarred for life. The Communists in Russia, Eastern Europe, China and Communist nations all over the world hate all religions, especially the big three. Christianity, Judaism and Islam. In Western Europe and the U.S. the cultural Marxist movement pushes the idea that there are two classes of people. The oppressed and the oppressors. The oppressors are white Christians and Jews. This is one reason that there is so much antisemitism in the Democrat party today and many Democrats are anti Israel. Many leftists mistakenly believe that most Jews are white. There have always been native Palestinian Jews that are as dark as any Arab people. People of color, homosexuals, bisexuals, transsexuals and Muslims are seen as the oppressed. The Communists promote the spread of Islam in the Western world because it is so diametrically opposed to Christianity.

    It serves their cause to allow the spread of the Islamic religion in the U.S. for now Yet the Communists persecuted Islam in the Soviet Union and the Chinese Communist Party persecutes the Islamic people in China today. If there is ever a total Communist takeover of America Islam will be persecuted the same as they are now in China. For the time being in Western Europe and America promoting the spread of Islam is seen as destabilizing to the traditional Judeo Christian ethic and it is supported by the Communists/ Fascists. Atheism is the fastest growing religion in America today. The god that they worship is man and by extension the state. There is nothing higher. Contrary to what leftist historians will tell you America was founded on the Judeo-Christian ethic. Even the founding fathers who were religious skeptics like Benjamin Franklin realized the importance of religion in society. Bidens new diversity czar Zakiya Carr Johnson just said that America is a failed historic model and demanded the destruction of tradition at every juncture on the altar of antiracism. This also means Americas Judeo-Christian tradition which has been, along with the family the stability of American society.

    Her words are straight out of the Communist playbook which makes her a Neo-Marxist. In 2008 when Obama said that he wanted to fundamentally change America this is exactly what he meant. Karl Marx would be very proud of his accomplishments so far. The destruction of Americas Judeo-Christian ethic could be traced back to the latter half of the 19th century. Horace Mann introduced the public school system to Massachusetts when he became secretary of education there in 1837. The concept of public schools would later spread to the entire country. He based his educational reform ideas on the German model of a more centralized and secular educational system. Americas educational system had been modeled after the Greek Paideia prior to the ideas of Mann. It is essentially the part of upbringing and education that forms the soul of a human being — and it is key to the formation of a culture. The core curriculum was the seven liberal arts. They were rhetoric, grammar, logic, astronomy, arithmetic, geometry and music. The Greeks designed their educational system to be available to all classes of people rich and poor. Through critical thinking man could ultimately discover God. After Europe became Christian the Greek Paideia became the Christian Paideia and this system made its way to America.

    Manns system would teach children what to think. The Christian Paideia taught children how to think. They were more likely to reach their own conclusions. The great thinkers such as Plato, Socrates, Aristotle, Rousseau, Montesquieu, Hume, Locke, Adam Smith, our Founding Fathers, Lincoln and other early 19th century figures were beneficiaries of the Christian Paideia. Lincoln had probably no more than a second grade education but he learned the process of critical thinking. Although many poor people in rural and urban early America did not have access to education because their labor was required to make ends meet the ones who were educated received a top quality education. All you have to do is read the letters of an educated ten year old from that period. Their use of grammar would put a modern college professor to shame. We have access to more information and an education today than any period in world history but far too many of our people are illiterate and ignorant. Being ignorant simply means that they lack knowledge. Many though are willfully ignorant which makes them stupid. Children are routinely graduating from school today who cant read and write. Or they cant make change at McDonalds.

    As a security supervisor I had incident reports on a routine basis that were so poorly written that I couldnt even decipher them or turn them in. The Communists/Fascists want us to be uneducated because it is virtually impossible to control a highly educated populace. That is a population who are educated to think for themselves and not those who are brainwashed by indoctrination. Beginning in the late 1800s, with the growth of Manns public school system and other progressive educational reformers like John Dewey over time America saw the virtual death of the Christian Paideia and critical thinking. Mann promoted Normal schools that were colleges built for the sole purpose of educating teachers. Although public education was nonsectarian or affiliated with any religious faith the administrators and teachers had a healthy respect for religion. They understood the importance of religion regarding the molding of character in young people. The school day would usually start with a prayer or Bible readings and prayers were routinely said prior to special school events such as graduation ceremonies and athletic events. Nobody freaked out if a teacher read the Bible in class or conducted Bible studies in class.

    This all began to change with a Supreme Court decision called Everson vs. the Board of Education in 1947. If you ask most Americans whether or not there is such a thing as a separation of church and state they will say yes because it is in the Constitution. They would be wrong, however. There is no such thing as separation of church and state in the Constitution. The first amendment is very clear. It reads that Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof. What this means is that Congress cannot establish a national religion and that it cannot prohibit anyone from worshiping the way that they please. National religions were common in Europe and America was going to be different. The Founders never intended for church and state to be completely separate. They considered religion indispensable to the nation that they were creating. The phrase separation of church and state comes from a letter that Thomas Jefferson wrote to the Danbury Baptist Association as president in 1802. Although Jefferson believed that religion should be a private matter he also understood how indispensable religion was to our nation. Thomas Jefferson and James Madison worked to disestablish the Anglican Church as the state religion of Virginia which was written into law in 1786.

    Yet Thomas Jefferson and James Madison would never try to tell another state how they should approach religious liberty in their own state. Before Everson vs. the Board of Education each state determined its own approach to religion. For example the state of Tennessee could legislate that the Catholic Church or the Baptist Church, or any denomination could be their state religion. I would not be in favor of a state religion but any state in the Union could have a state religion if they wanted one and the Federal government could not do anything about it. They could also have public prayers, display the Ten Commandments on public property and government buildings. Menorahs or Christian displays could be allowed on public property and in government buildings. This is the wall of separation that Jefferson talked about in the Danbury letter. The wall of separation between the Federal government and the individual states. In 1947 the Supreme Court, in a 5 to 4 decision changed the original meaning of the First Amendment. The ruling stated that neither a state nor the Federal government could pass laws which aid one religion, aid all religions, or prefer one religion over another. A modern strict separation view was born.

    The five justices did not look to the Constitution for the source of their ruling but to Jeffersons Danbury letter and they totally misunderstood what Jefferson was trying to say. It was ironic that they would misconstrue the words of the man who wrote the Declaration Of Independence. The same man who wrote We hold these truths to be self evident that all men are created equal and endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. As Joe Biden might say You know the thing. He is also the same president who attended a Christian church in the U.S. capital for the entire eight years he was in office. Incredibly Jefferson was being used as a pawn to separate religion from the public square. |Benjamin Franklin, John Adams and Thomas Jefferson with the Declaration Of Independence| The nations moral infrastructure began to crack after Everson vs. the Board of Education ruling. Liberal justice William O. Douglas wrote in a court case in 1952 that We are a religious people whose institutions presuppose a supreme being. This is something that the Founders would have strongly agreed with. Religion in the public domain suffered another great blow in the years 1962 and 1963.

    In 1962s court case called Engel vs. Vitale the Supreme Court ruled that a generic school prayer violated the courts new definition of the 1st Amendment. The prayer went like this. Almighty God, we acknowledge our dependence upon thee, and we beg thy blessings upon us, our parents, our teachers, and our country, Amen. In June 1963 a case called Abington School District vs. Schempp the Supreme Court ruled that Bible readings and prayer in school were unconstitutional. Is America better off since the early 1960s? Not according to statistics. Marriage rates have fallen, birth rates have fallen, the numbers of Americans giving to charity have fallen. On the other hand the numbers of children being raised without fathers, behavioral problems in school, and crime has risen dramatically since the end of prayer in school. Divorce rates have risen as well as the number of children born out of wedlock. Many of the key players in the destruction of Americas moral infrastructure are despicable people. Karl Marx was a worthless moral degenerate and you can read his backstory in my article entitled Killing Common Sense published on November 9, 2022. The Supreme Court Justice Hugo Black, who was the chief designer of the Everson VS The Board Of Education ruling, and is still a hero of the so called progressive left, was a former member of the Ku Klux Klan who hated blacks, Catholics and Jews.

    It was his hatred of the Catholic church that motivated him to design the ruling that overturned the original meaning of the First Amendment regarding religious liberty. You can read more about him in my article entitled The Beginning Of The End Of Religious Freedom In America. Then there was Madalyn Murray OHair who had a lot to do with one of the lawsuits banning the reading of the Bible and saying prayers in public schools which was Abington School District vs. Schempp. She was an angry atheist and Communist who had tried to defect to the Soviet Union just before her lawsuit against the Baltimore City school system. Her son William J. Murray was used as an unwilling pawn in her lawsuit as a child and he is now a pastor and serves as the chairman of the Religious Freedom Coalition. You can read about Madalyn OHair in my article The Angry Atheist published May 27, 2018. I would highly recommend pastor Murrays book Let Us Pray in which he goes into much detail about his mothers sordid past and what it was like to be raised by such a dysfunctional person. I realized many years ago now that there was a war on religion in this country. As a child, and as a young adult I remember many religious symbols such as nativity scenes, menorahs, and crosses on city and state property.

    The state capital would be decorated every Christmas and you would see religious displays during the holidays in public schools. One of my fondest memories as a child was Harveys nativity scene that flanked the south side of the Parthenon. It was there for years and people would travel miles to see it. For me Christmas was not the same if I didnt get to see it at least once before Christmas. Fred Harvey Junior eventually sold it to a foreign buyer because of the expensive upkeep. Because of the ACLU and other Communist groups it would not be possible to have this nativity scene today because Centennial park is city owned property. Another fond memory that I had was how the L&C Tower, which was our first tall building in Nashville, would turn all the office lights out except for lights that made the figure of a cross at Christmastime. The Life and Casualty Insurance Company is privately owned but they discontinued this practice years ago. Unfortunately I was probably in my late forties when I finally realized that the Everson VS The Board Of Education ruling in 1947 was a false interpretation of the 1st Amendment regarding religious liberty. This false interpretation is what I was taught in school.

    It was pastor Bill Murrays book, Let Us Pray that opened my eyes to the fact that there is no separation of church and state. The ACLU and other groups have made much progress in the war to destroy religious liberty in this country. If there has been any doubt to what demonic forces we have been fighting over the years the Covid lockdowns should have opened a lot of eyes. |Harveys nativity scene| |The Tennessee State Capital at Christmas| During Covid lockdowns liquor stores were allowed to stay open because they were considered essential but church services were banned. Alcohol and drug related problems increased during the Covid lockdowns as well as the number of suicides. During the height of Covid and during the George Floyd riots rioters and protestors were encouraged by leftist mayors, governors and government officials to be in the streets but again churches were locked down. Pastors were arrested for violating lockdown orders. Some in front of their church congregants. One of the most ridiculous arrests I saw was people who were in their cars at a drive in church in Mississippi. In the past few years there has been a rise in anti Christian rhetoric. More and more churches are burned and vandalized.

    Canada has had a wave of church burnings. The Biden DOJ has declared war on the church. They are monitoring Bible sales. The DOJ is also monitoring Catholics who prefer the traditional Latin mass. Most Christians are being targeted as Christian Nationalists and by extension domestic terrorists. We are the bitter clingers that Obama talked about. You know, the people that hold on to their religion and their guns. Yes, you can call me a proud bitter clinger. I am a Christian and I love my country. What real Christian doesnt? They try to make it racial by calling us white Christian Nationalists. Okay, I will take the bait. I am white, I am a Christian, and I love my country. At least I hope I love my country because I served 21 years defending it. I raised my hand to swear allegiance to its Constitution at least five times. My allegiance to the Constitution didnt expire upon my discharge from the armed forces. Yes, I believe that all men are created equal and endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. These words are anathema to Biden and the Communist/Fascist left. My God is the one true God and their God is the state.

    There is nothing higher than that to them. The early Christians werent fed to the lions in Rome because they believed in Christ but because they wouldnt swear allegiance to Caesar. I trust the fate of American people in the hands of a Christian Nationalist government more than I trust their fate in the hands of a secular Communist/Fascist government. Even when so-called Christianity was at its worst in Europe and America during the Spanish Inquisition and the burning of witches a few thousand people lost their lives over several centuries. Over 100 million people died at the hands of the atheist Communists during the twentieth century alone. Elections have dire consequences. America can vote Biden back into office this November and hasten the demise of religion in this country. Yes Trump is a heathen and hurts the feelings of suburban women with his harsh tweets but there has been no president more friendlier to religion in America perhaps since Ronald Reagan. God sometimes uses the most unlikely people to further his cause. Trump had the moral fortitude to place our embassy in Jerusalem. Something that has been promised by a multitude of presidents since 1967 but has never been done until Donald Trump did it.

    Trump will not be weak and wishy washy with his support of Israel like Biden has been trying to placate his Islamic voting block and brainwashed antisemitic leftists. The Bible is clear about who the victor will be in the war between Christ and Satan. Spoiler alert. It wont be satan and his evil followers. Yet we also know that things are going to get pretty rough for his people here on earth before Christ wins the final victory. We are definitely in the final days but we havent seen anything yet. We do have the ability to slow that process down based on the actions of righteous people. That is why this election is so important. Regardless of what happens we know that the Lord is with us. Psalm 27:1-The LORD is my light and my salvation-- whom shall I fear? The LORD is the stronghold of my life-- of whom shall I be afraid? When evil men advance against me to devour my flesh, when my enemies and my foes attack me, they will stumble and fall.
