Teaching the uncompromising Word of God from the Bible and the Prophetic
I would like to hear from people both in the United States and those in other countries on this very important topic for all Christians. In the United States, the military Chaplains are forbidden from praying, especially in public, using the name of "In the name of Jesus." That ruling is a blatant disrespect for Christians' freedom of speech and creates religious persecution.
For too long, have we sat by and not raised to the fight to protect our rights as citizens. We hear of religious persecution in other countries. And no, we are not saying that these military "pastors" are being killed or tortured--but they are being fired from the military, loose their retirements after many years of service, kicked out of military housing, and left on the side of the road with no assistance--all because they pray "in the name of Jesus."
Our children are encouraged to learn and practice Islamic prayers, learn about terrorism, learn about other cultures, but they cannot exercise their own Constitutional Rights! CHRISTIANS ARISE--it may not be your style to get involved in political areas--but this does affect your rights now and in the future for your children and grandchildren.
Prayer was taken out of schools without a whimper--because our parent's generation didn't get involved. Two sit downs of non-involvement doesn't make it better. WRITE YOUR CONGRESSMAN AND SENATORS--WRITE THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES. WRITE THE MILITARY COURTS
GET INVOLVED AND SAY NO TO TAKING AWAY ANY MORE RELIGIOUS FREEDOMS! Our kids are being killed in Iraq for democratic freedoms--well, we want them to be here too! One soldier fighting in the desert and one fighting in the church--both should be protected under the Constitution.
IN THE NAME OF JESUS! We declare our voices upon those laws that say we have the right to worship when, where, and how we are lead by the GOD we choose to acknowledge. IN THE NAME OF JESUS CHRIST! I refuse to be silenced; I refuse to let others be silenced because I will not speak out about religious injustices.
PLEASE WRITE A LETTER TODAY! MAKE YOUR VOICE BE HEARD! If the government can tell me how to pray, they will soon be tellilng me what to buy and where to live--sounds like the coming of the antichrist to me .... SPEAK UP! Protect your right to pray!!
