There are many pundits who have said over the years that real reason for the attack on God, the accuracy of the Bible, and all things Christian is twofold. On one hand, it is about our world leaders wanting more control, which happens when they are seen as more powerful once God is factored out. Secondly, and more sinister of all, it is clear that eliminating Christ creates a world that is more callous to the poor and helpless. As the Georgia Guidestones and even the U.N.’s own white papers tell us, that is their ultimate end game.
The poor and destitute stand to pay the price in Texas as officers “in Tulsa have been told they cannot participate in the Salvation Army’s holiday donation drive while in uniform,” reports Police One. The anti-God left has once again confused the right of displaying religion with endorsing a religion, and the slight was done on purposes, as is usually the case.
Tulsa Salvation Army Capt. Ken Chapman was informed that police will no longer be allowed to take part in the holiday fundraising because of the anti-First Amendment demons at the Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF).
The worst part about this is that maybe Jordan needed to take a few arrows and go to court. Have the police no lawyers? Are there no Christian lawyers in Texas who would take such a case for little or no money on principle alone? Surely there are. Instead of fighting back, Oklahoma is cowering to the FFRF like a slave before Cesear.
Ringing bells to prompt donations “violated the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment by favoring a specific religion over another,” the heretical group said. However, until a Hindu, Islamist, or other religion asks for such bell ringing and are declined, how is one religion being shown favor?
This is the kind of common sense that could easily win court cases, but far too often, communities and businesses refuse to fight back. As such, the bully often wins by default.
The FFRF claims that they support “the constitutional principle of separation between state and church, and to educate the public on matters relating to nontheism,” but that is not what that separation even means. As the rock band Rush stated, non-theism is still a religious decision since “if you choose not to decide, you still have made a choice.”
Secondly, there is nothing in the Constitution that prevents an officer in uniform from raising money for the mighty mice men who dwell on the moon of green cheese if he or she wishes to! While they are there to protect and to serve, they may worship as they see fit and when they see fit unless otherwise called to action.
The group opines that the charity involvement “suggests that Christianity is the preferred religion of the Tulsa Police Department,” though many officers are certainly engaged in other religions…which is their right. Participation would only be a problem if the officers were forced to do it.
Needless to say, there have been no reports of that having been the case in even a single instance.
Last year, $5,000 was raised for the Salvation Army.
Let that number really stew in one’s mind and then let it be remembered what was declared earlier. All signs do seem to point to a godless society that quickly aims to harm the poorest among us, in this case to the tune of five grand.
If even the most godless of people cannot see that this is a real danger, then the evil that we fear has already won.
