Last May I was invited to attend the St. Charles County Christian Home Educators High School graduation. I am pictured here in the dignitaries row with colleagues from Lindenwood University and St. Charles County Community College. As I sat there, I reflected on how great it is that we still are able to educate our children in the manner we see fit without fear of persecution. Now, with the recent attack on the Kentucky clerk, I wonder how long we will enjoy our freedoms before more of them are gone.
PERSECUTION: n. The act or practice of persecuting; the infliction of pain, punishment or death upon others unjustly, particularly for adhering to a religious creed or mode of worship, either by way of penalty or for compelling them to renounce their principles.
If you think the story is going to stop with just the clerk from Kentucky, fasten your seat belts because we are in for a rough ride. The radical Left is trying to create a new country—one where the Christians are banished from all public offices.
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)
