Christian persecution is a reality in foreign countries, but we never thought we would see it here in the land of the free and the home of the brave. We sometimes see people being mean spirited in the private sector, but when it comes from our government, it’s time to call a foul. Whether you like the man occupying the White House or not, he is the commander of the military and is ultimately, responsible for the behavior of all branches of our military. This week the Army started training their soldiers to view Christians and those who adhere to Biblical principles as domestic haters.
Communists, Muslims, Atheists and those who are hostile to the Bible have historically despised Christians. Now we find ourselves in a situation where our government is treating Christians, who stand for protecting innocent life and have done more to help the planet than any other group of people, (Salvation Army, hospitals, soup kitchens, Samaritan’s Purse, YMCA, prison ministries, food pantries, helping foreign countries, etc.) as though they were the bad guys.
We hear about deplorable abuses in other countries where they don’t have constitutional protections, but what attacks on our first amendment are happening here? We expect our government to protect the innocent and punish the guilty? What happens when our government starts arresting the good guys?
Springfield is in the heart of the “Bible Belt” of our country. If it could happen here, it can happen anywhere. (read the story at ChristianNews.net)
