School sends deputy to warn 7-year-old about Bible verses: "Officials at a California public grade school who dispatched a sheriff’s deputy to stop a 7-year-old from sharing Bible verses with his classmates because someone could be “offended” now are being warned of “civil rights violations.” See Whose "rights" will rule in a "democratized" world?

Deck this! Angels, stars banished from Christmas trees. "...a tree is all right as a decoration. So are snowflakes. But a tree with lights isn’t, unless there’s an appropriate 'dialogue' within the 'unit or living area.' Under no circumstances are angels appropriate, the school has announced. Neither is mistletoe. And banished, too, are stars when they are 'at the top of trees.' The commentary comes from Catherine Sevcenko and points out that the instructions all come from the school’s Department of Environmental Health & Safety."

Obama orders agencies to stop asking for job applicants’ criminal records: "President Obama ordered federal agencies to stop requiring job applicants to declare on applications whether they have a criminal record... drawing fire from some conservatives for taking actions that may undermine bipartisan efforts to reduce prison populations.... The administration is offering $8 million in grants for job training.... 'Public safety does have to be the top priority, and that doesn't seem to be the president's top priority,' said Mr. Cuccinelli, a Republican." See Alinsky's Rules for Radicals

Los Angeles Allows 98 MILLION Gallons of Water to Flow Into Ocean Each Year: "California has a shortage of water, NOT due to a drought, but do to government actions (giving needed water to salmon and delta smelt) and inaction.... Although drier days may see river water at a trickle, it carries more than 98 million gallons a day –water wasted as it drains out to the Pacific and during times of peak flow, the river carries more than 118 billion gallons a day– enough water to supply 800,000 homes in a year....  Incompetent, mismanaged and yes, corrupt government is the cause..."

For Churches That Won't Perform Same-Sex Weddings, Insurance Begins to Look Iffy: "...pastors and church members are experiencing a wave of anxiety over what many of them deem the 'nightmare scenario': lawsuits or government action designed to force them to perform or recognize same-sex marriages."  See Why hate crimes laws would ban Biblical Christianity

Obama: 'If Catholics Have Their Schools... and Protestants Have Theirs ... that Encourages Division': "Likening religious schools to segregation--a racist system that forced blacks to attend different schools and use different facilities than whites in the American South--President Barack Obama told a town hall meeting for youth in Belfast, Northern Ireland on Monday that there should not be Catholic and Protestant schools because such schools cause division." See Trusting God as Freedom Fades


Micro-Totalitarianism: "Professors at the University of California at Berkeley have been officially warned against saying such things as 'America is the land of opportunity.' Why? Because this is considered to be an act of 'micro-aggression' against minorities and women. Supposedly it shows that you don’t take their grievances seriously and are therefore guilty of being aggressive toward them."


U.S. State Dept. Invites Muslim Leaders, Denies Christians: "After inviting a number of foreign religious leaders, mostly Muslim, the U.S. State Department, for the second time in a row, denied the sole Christian representative a visa -- despite (or perhaps because of) the fact that Christians are the ones being persecuted by Muslims.

      "Sister Diana, an influential Iraqi Christian leader and spokeswoman who was scheduled to visit the U.S. to advocate for persecuted Christians in the Mideast, earlier this month was denied a visa by the U.S. State Department.... Sister Diana was to be one of a delegation of religious leaders from Iraq... to visit Washington, D.C., to describe the situation of their people. Every single religious leader from this delegation was granted a visa -- except for the only Christian representative, Sister Diana." See Global War on Christian Values


As Floridians Are Displaced, Rubio Demands More Foreign Workers: "In the second phase, the guest worker began working alongside the American worker, who was supposed to oversee and critique them. And in the last 30 days the guest worker completely took over the American worker’s job, while the American worker sat by and watched, tasked only with keeping them from making serious mistakes.

       “It was really, extremely uncomfortable,' the ex-employee said. 'You’re thinking ‘I can’t believe that I’ve worked this many years for this company, and I’ve worked these crazy on-call hours, and I’ve worked in the middle of the night on all these projects, and they’re just replacing me with somebody from India.'

      "On their last day of employment, he and the other replaced workers were asked to turn over their badges, their Disney season passes, and their laptops and then asked to leave. And that was it.... His lawyer is working on a class action lawsuit, and has made it his mission to ensure other workers don’t suffer the same fate. 'I’m a really patriotic person.... It’s just so humiliating and so anti-American

9.8 Million Federal Employees Delinquent on Taxes: "The current delinquency rate is 3.1 percent of 9.8 million federal workers; in 2013, the delinquency rate stood at 3.3 percent. Department of Housing and Urban Development employees are the worst offenders, with a delinquency rate of 4.7 percent. By contrast, those at the Treasury Department touted the least number of delinquencies, with a rate of 1.2 percent, AP reported.

Have Americans Lost ALL of Our Constitutional Rights?  "The 1st Amendment protects speech, religion, assembly and the press.... The Supreme Court has also interpreted the First Amendment as protecting freedom of association. However, the government is arresting those speaking out… and violently crushing peaceful assemblies which attempt to petition the government for redress. A federal judge found that the law allowing indefinite detention of Americans without due process has a 'chilling effect' on free speech....

     "Mass spying by the NSA violates our freedom of association.... The threat of being labeled a terrorist for exercising our First Amendment rights certainly violates the First Amendment....

     "Of course, Muslims are more or less subject to a separate system of justice in America.....

      "The 4th Amendment prevents unlawful search and seizure: The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated.... But the government is spying on everything we do..." See Trusting God as Freedom Fades

This human rights ruling flies in the face of UK justice: "A system that was meant to prevent a return to brutal totalitarianism has ended up supporting killers. The Left-wing ideology of judicial activism is now so twisted, so devoid of humane values, that it gives its backing to some of most vicious monsters in modern British criminal history....

     "One is mass murderer Jeremy Bamber, who cold-bloodedly shot dead five members of his family, including two young children.... Another is Douglas Vinter from Middlesbrough, who stabbed and strangled his wife to death in 2008 soon after he had been released from prison for a previous killing. The third is Peter Moore, a sadist who butchered four men 'for fun' in north Wales in 1995." See The Power and Perversions of Laws

Federal Prosecutor Warns Anti-Muslim Internet Postings are Subject to Federal Jurisdiction: "...if you’re reading this, you may be violating Muslim civil rights. Apparently one of those civil rights is the right not to be criticized. And the perpetrator is a Tennessee lawyer who was appointed US Attorney by Barack Hussein Obama....

      "Killian and Moore will provide input on how civil rights can be violated by those who post inflammatory documents targeted at Muslims on social media. ...

35% of German Muslims have multiple wives, all funded by welfare: "The average German family struggles financially with large tax burdens and as a result have only 1.3 children per family.... Meanwhile Muslim immigrants have as many as 3-4 wives, perhaps 6-7 children from each wife, and all of this is funded by welfare as none of these wives work."

Workshops in White Privilege: "One of the 'diversity' training documents... suggests that white people 'wear a white wristband as a reminder about your privilege, and as a personal commitment to explain why you wear the wristband.' It also suggests that white people ponder questions such as 'How do I ignore privilege? What am I doing today to undo my privilege?' .... For those white people who might find their thoughts drifting away from such self-flagellation during the day, here are its other suggestions for keeping unearned guilt in the forefront of one’s consciousness."

Black Skin Privilege and the American Dream: "As it happens, the term 'white skin privilege' was first popularized in the 1970s by the SDS radicals of 'Weatherman,' who were carrying on a terrorist war against '“Amerikkka,' a spelling designed to stigmatize the United States as a nation of Klansmen. Led by presidential friends, Bill Ayers and his wife Bernardine Dohrn, the Weather terrorists called on other whites to renounce their privilege and join a global race war already in progress."

The UN Convention on the Rights of the Child: "What Difference Does the Treaty Make as Far as Affecting our Parental Rights in America? According to the Supremacy Clause in Article VI of the U.S. Constitution, a treaty directly applies to all citizens in the United States. ...'All treaties made, or which shall be made, under the authority of the United States, shall be the supreme law of the land... anything in the constitution of the laws of any state to the contrary notwithstanding. Therefore, otherwise valid state laws pertaining to education and parents’ rights throughout the states which conflict with the provisions of the Treaty will be nullified by our own U.S. Constitution.'...

     "The Treaty makes it clear that infringement on a child’s rights in any of these areas could cause the parents to be prosecuted with the possibility of having the child removed from the home."

Terrorist? Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell: "FBI agents aren’t allowed to treat individuals associated with terrorist groups as potential threats....The fact that a terrorism suspect is associated with a terrorist group means nothing.... 

     "While two George Soros-funded nonprofits, the Center for American Progress and Media Matters for America, use the Alinsky playbook to try to convince Americans that 'Islamophobia,' a make-believe mental illness, is a threat to American democracy and pluralism, the embattled Obama administration is currently in full-time damage control mode as the president’s foreign policy aimed at appeasing totalitarian Islamic theocrats collapses."

Meaningful Work: [Sowell] "What is 'meaningful work'? The underlying notion seems to be that it is work whose performance is satisfying or enjoyable in itself. But if that is the only kind of work that people should have to do, how is garbage to be collected, bed pans emptied in hospitals or jobs with life-threatening dangers to be performed?... In the real world, many things are done simply because they have to be done, not because doing them brings immediate pleasure to those who do them.....

    "Some of our more Utopian intellectuals lament that many people work 'just for the money.'... Subsidizing them in idleness while they wait for 'meaningful work' is just asking for trouble..."

War on home gardens - Canada town outlaws food self-sufficiency: (8-6-12) "A Canadian couple that has been growing a beautiful, meticulously-maintained front yard vegetable and herb garden has been ordered by city officials to uproot most of it by September 1 or else face lofty fines. ...the town of Drummondville in Quebec is actually planning to ban all front yard gardens in the municipality beginning this fall; a move the spells the end of food self-sufficiency for many Canadians...."

Man Faces 2 Years in Prison for Shooting Grizzly While Defending Family: "Jeremy M. Hill, 33, pleaded not guilty to killing the grizzly with a rifle on his 20-acre property near Porthill, Idaho, at the Canadian border....Hill has six children ranging in age from 14 years old to 10 months old and at least five were reportedly home when the grizzly appeared and was later killed."

Scottish Murderer Converts to Islam for Better Food & Benefits in Prison: "...one hardened criminal in Scotland — convicted of stabbing an 82-year old grandmother to death — who allegedly converted to Islam to avoid having to work long hours in the prison laundry and to enjoy the presumably better Halal meals afforded to Muslim prisoners.... Since converting, Millar will reportedly be excused from work on Fridays to attend prayers....

     "...if someone expresses an interest in conversion... no one, including prison guards, are allowed to question the inmate’s motivation. ...converting to Islam in prison has become akin to joining an 'exclusive club'...Not only are these jails ‘colleges for crime’, but they are also, potentially, terrorism incubators too."

Governments can't do everything: "What do Obamacare, the London riots and a possible French debt crisis have in common? ...the culprit is a state grown so large it has over-promised benefits, oversold citizens on what they have a 'right' to but can no longer expect. The rioters in Britain may claim they are smashing, burning, beating and grabbing because the government has not provided them jobs or opportunities, but most such claims are ludicrous. The generations of the last 40 years are the most-provided for in history....The rioting is a culmination of decades of liberal social theorists and politicians telling us that there are no consequences to our bad behaviour - we are not responsible..."


A Christian Business in the Left's Crosshairs: "Chick-fil-A is an American success story.... It employs some 50,000 workers across the country at 1,500 outlets in nearly 40 states and the District of Columbia....So, what’s the problem? Well, Chick-fil-A is run by devout Christians who believe in strong marriages, devoted families, and the highest standards of character for their workers. The restaurant chain’s official corporate mission is to 'glorify God' and 'enrich the lives of everyone we touch.' The company’s community-service initiatives, funded through its WinShape Foundation, support foster-care, scholarship, summer-camp, and marriage-enrichment programs....
    "For the Left, these Biblically based corporate principles constitute social-justice high crimes and misdemeanors....Over the past month, several progressive-activist blogs have waged an ugly war against Chick-fil-A. The company’s alleged atrocity: One of its independent outlets in Pennsylvania donated some sandwiches and brownies to a marriage seminar run by the Pennsylvania Family Institute, which happens to oppose same-sex marriage.
    "In the name of tolerance, the anti-Chick-fil-A hawks sneered at the company’s main product as 'Jesus Chicken,' derided its no-Sunday-work policy, and attacked its operators as 'anti-gay.'... It’s being done by the hysterical bullies trying to drive them off of college grounds and out of their neighborhoods in the name of 'human rights.'
     "These were the same tactics the left-wing mob used in California to intimidate supporters of the Proposition 8 traditional-marriage initiative. Individual donors were put on an 'Anti-Gay Black List.'"

Truth On Trial: “I am on trial, but on trial with me is the freedom of expression of many Dutch citizens.' ...Wilders faces a year in prison or a fine of up to 7,600 euros for supposedly inciting hatred against Muslims – which he has supposedly done by telling the truth about how Islamic jihadists use the texts and teachings of Islam themselves to incite hatred and violence against non-Muslims....

 "He added: 'I am sitting here as a suspect because I have spoken nothing but the truth.....The Wilders trial is a turning point for the West: will Western authorities defend the hard-won principle of the freedom of speech as a bulwark against tyranny...or will they – in the interests of suicidal political correctness — allow Islamic supremacists to obliterate that freedom in the interests of establishing in the West the Sharia principle that Islam is not to be questioned or criticized...?"

ACLU protects teeth-rattling car music: "'The throbbing, molar-rattling bass punctuated with profanity-laced lyrics coming from the car in front of you carries the same weight as a political candidate...asking for votes with a bullhorn.'...

 Mothers crying over raw milk: "Four weeks after the government moved to shut down Amish farmer Dan Allgyer for selling fresh, unpasteurized milk across state lines, angry moms who made up much of his customer base rallied on the Capitol’s grounds Monday to demand that Congress rein in the food police....The FDA and the Justice Department sought a court injunction after FDA agents conducted a one-year sting operation, complete with fake aliases and lab testing, to determine that the milk they surreptitiously obtained from Mr. Allgyer was, in fact, unpasteurized."

We only drank unpasteurized milk when I was growing up in Norway. It didn't make anyone sick. But Norway has changed a lot since then:

Norwegian MP Has Had Enough of Labour´s Mad Demographic Experiments: "The labor Party has turned Oslo into an ethnically divided city. In the Grorud Valley the indigenous [Norwegian] population is moving out and non-Western [Muslim] immigrants are moving in. Norwegians feel ostracized in their own neighborhoods.... In the Grorud Valley blonde girls are harassed into dying their hair dark. Children are throated with beatings if their lunch box contains salami [pork offends the Muslims] Boys of immigrant background threaten to beat Norwegian boys."

Gold medalist resigns, thanks to pro-’gay’ criticism: "Two-time gymnastics gold medal winner Peter Vidmar has resigned upon receiving harsh criticism from homosexual and lesbian athletes and activists, who complained that he had donated $2,000 to promote California’s Proposition 8, which defines marriage as between one man and one woman."

Free Speech Under Assault at Sinclair Community College: "Last October, Sinclair Community College (SCC) prohibited a paralegal studies student, Ethel Borel-Donohue, from distributing pamphlets to her fellow students after a class. The pamphlets focused on the link between abortion and the use of oral contraceptives to higher rates of breast cancer. October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, but Judge Michael Brigner...banned the distribution after receiving a complaint from a student who had had an abortion..."

Universities Slap the First Amendment in the Face: "...the civility/anti-bullying...advocates are so persistent that even Congress is considering new anti-harassment legislation that would strip students of their basic First Amendment freedoms on campus....

     "By political definition, popular views need no protection. It is unpopular notions [like the sanctity of life] that are in the greatest peril -- and it was primarily to protect their expression that the First Amendment was adopted." See Why "Hate crime" laws would ban Biblical Christianity

Foster parents argue Christians should be allowed to help: "A husband and wife whose dispute with local city officials over their plan to resume providing care for foster children escalated to the point a court concluded Christians only have 'qualified' rights to their faith now is asking those local officials to change their decision. The case involves Eunice and Owen Johns, who were rejected by local foster care authorities because they would not promise to promote homosexuality to children."

U.S. Muslim group 'attacks free speech': "The Council on American-Islamic Relations alleges it suffered damage after former federal agent David Gaubatz and his son, Chris Gaubatz, obtained access to CAIR internal documents under false pretenses....Posing as a Muslim, Chris Gaubatz gathered some 12,000 pages of documents, which were meant to be shredded.... Daniel Horowitz, one of three high-profile lawyers representing the targets of CAIR's lawsuit, calls the complaint a 'blatant attack on the First Amendment.'...Horowitz said CAIR knows it can't win the case, but it 'can... [make] it so expensive to speak against them that no one can challenge' the Saudi-funded group."

The next link raises some difficult questions that I can't answer: Muslims have burned countless Bibles in Saudi Arabia and Egypt. Our U.S. military has also burned numerous Bibles -- without much (if any) public protest. Yet, when a man burns his own Quran (which commands the killing of Jews and Christians), our president protests and Muslims feel free to kill 12 more people. How might such heated reactions affect America's future freedom with respect to faith, free speech and personal property?

       In 2005, some Danish editorial cartoons led to mass murder in the Middle East. That, in turn, led to significant media fear and suppression of news critical of Islam. As Christians we are committed to demonstrate God's love -- but also to recognize evil and to refuse to compromise. How far might we be forced to bend to satisfy the demands of Muslim radicals and our accommodating leaders? Two things are certain: Freedom is fading and Sharia law threatens America as well as Europe. See Joshua 1:9

Will Koran-Burning be banned in the United States? "As an American in the United States of America, you are allowed to do many things. You can burn the flag. You can burn the Bible. You can produce obscene art and sometimes even get government money to finance it. You can make movies and TV shows that ridicule Christianity, traditional morality, and that take the Lord’s name in vain. If anybody objects to this, you can just accuse him of trying to impose his values on others. Then start talking about the Salem Witch Trial.... But can you burn a Koran? Yes, but maybe not for long.....

     "As a result of his plan to burn a Koran in the U.S.A., Terry Jones received death threats. His website was shut down. The mortgage on his church’s property was called in and – what a coincidence – the church’s property insurance was cancelled.... All this happened to a private group which wanted to burn a privately-owned book on private property....

     "President Obama, rather than defend American principles of freedom of speech and freedom of religion, put the rioters on the same level as Pastor Jones: 'The desecration of any holy text, including the Koran, is an act of extreme intolerance and bigotry. However, to attack and kill innocent people in response is outrageous, and an affront to human decency and dignity.

     "The U.S. Army has confiscated and burned Bibles in Afghanistan. Where was the outcry over that?"

Obama condemns Koran burning 'bigotry': "The desecration of any holy text, including the Koran, is an act of extreme intolerance and bigotry,' Mr Obama said in a statement honoring those killed in the attacks. 'However, to attack and kill innocent people in response is outrageous, and an affront to human decency and dignity."

US Army now warning Chaplains: If you don't like the homosexual agenda, get out! "Among the first casualties in the homosexualization of the US military caused by the repeal of 'Don't Ask Don't Tell' (DADT) are the military chaplains who still profess traditional Christian (or Jewish) belief. And it's starting right away. It's becoming clear that any open disagreement with homosexuality will not be tolerated." See "Hate crime" laws ban Biblical Christianity

Muslim teacher goes off to Mecca with AG's [US Attorney General's] blessing: "Safoorah Khan, 29, was hired to teach middle school math in November 2007....After nine months on the job, Khan requested a three-week leave of absence in order to perform the hajj — the pilgrimage to Mecca that all Muslims are obliged to undertake at least once in their lives if they can afford it. Employers are required by law to honor requests for religious accommodations provided that they do not impose 'undue hardship' on the employer or other employees. [School] officials maintained that a three-week absence in December — which would have denied the school its only math lab instructor right before exams — was unreasonable and was not covered by the teachers' union contract. They denied her request.

      "Khan decided to make the trip anyway and submitted her resignation. She also submitted a letter of complaint to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, charging that the school board's refusal to grant the 19-day leave amounted to religious discrimination. ...Now the Justice Department has taken up her case. ...to combat 'a real head wind of intolerance against Muslim communities'....The next scheduled hajj that will fall during a school vacation will be in eight years.... But why accommodate your students and your employer when you can sue?" See Spreading Islam through Public Schools

 It's called freedom of speech: "The woman who burst out with 'except Obama' when New Jersey Democratic Rep. Frank Pallone was reading in Congress the Constitution's requirement that the president be a 'natural born Citizen' was simply exercising her free speech rights, according to a law team representing her.... 'The sad irony here is that Ms. Cao was arrested for exercising her constitutional right to free speech at the very moment that Congress was making a show of reading aloud the Constitution."
