Father Jonathan Morris got my attention today when he stated on the news that Air Force officials had objected to a video with the word “God” in it. Can you recall another time in our nation’s history when our leaders, especially in Washington DC have exhibited such intolerance at the mention of God? Yet Americans in Coffee County Tennessee fear being prosecuted for speaking against Islam.
Bill Killian, a U.S. attorney, earlier this week addressed a crowd at the Coffee County Civic Center and read statutes verbatim from PowerPoint slides that defined hate crimes, civil rights violations, and federally prescribed violations and penalties. It is clear why Tennesseans and Americans would feel their freedom of speech is threatened when he released this statement before the event: ”This is an educational effort with civil rights laws as they play into freedom of religion and exercising freedom of religion. This is also to inform the public what federal laws are in effect and what the consequences are.” Indeed very interesting considering the DOJ and FBI have not scheduled meetings addressing the concerns of any other group but Muslims. Anyone surprised? Twelve such outreach sessions are planned for Tennessee alone.
It seems Christians are expected to accept that God and prayer are banned from high school and college sporting events and graduations; the Christmas tree is suppose to be a “holiday tree”; the ten commandments are banned from many public buildings; Easter break is now “spring” break, and the list goes on. Meanwhile Muslim’s are granted special recognition not granted to any other religious organization. Following the Benghazi attack, Obama went to the UN and announced, “The future does not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam”, adding, “Intolerance is a form of violence.” We have the President of the United States stating, “Intolerance is a form of violence”–what exactly is his definition of ‘intolerance?’ What about the ‘intolerance’ of God, which Christians are experiencing today? Are you angry yet that God and our freedom are under attack, not from outside forces but from the inside? Obama’s financial and verbal aid to terrorist Islamic regimes such as the Muslim Brotherhood and anti-God organizations should turn that “thrill up your leg” into a chill down your spine.
