bible belt

Last week  I did a post on a school in Louisiana that the ACLU filed a lawsuit stating that they had discriminated against a student who claimed to be Buddhist.  That was a very bizarre story, given that the named school and teachers supposedly singled out a student for refusing to say that God created the universe, even calling him stupid.  The ACLU did no investigation they just filed the lawsuit.  This school has in it’s belief’s that they believe that God exists, and creationism is taught.  I will put a link to the story at the end.

Now we have this:

“NC High School Football Coach Ordered To Cease Baptisms, Leading Prayers”

Apparently Wisconsin-based nonprofit Freedom from Religion Foundation started writing letters to the school ordering the Coach to cease ‘baptisms and prayers.’  They had a picture of a baptism of a player that they said the Coach did and was implied it was a school function.  But the school has since proven that this was at a church that many of the players attended.  And apparently the firm had received a letter from a parent complaining about the coach who frequently prayed with players.  And encouraged them to be baptized.  Hello!  I get the rules that have been put in place for the schools, I get the freedom from religion people.  But what about our rights to freedom of speech, freedom to worship.  Other religions are accommodated with prayer rooms, but we can’t mention prayer or baptism because it violates the constitution?

There evidently are a few hold outs in the south with the Bible Belt, fighting for their rights to express freedom of speech and religion.  And it appears there is a systematic cleansing taking place, of the Bible Belt to strip it of the last vestiges of God, and freedom.  The Coach has since said, at the request of the school district that he would not lead the team in prayers any longer.

To quote, Satan is overtaking this country so fast it’s mindboggling, that more can not see this.  The church is silent paralyzed with political correctness, and fear of government, preaching the cotton candy, love fest that the fear of God and our liberties and freedoms given us by God are being systematically stripped in front of our eyes.  Speak up. It’s time to realize what is happening, it’s time to speak out, it’s time to prepare for the tribulation in the world that is fast approaching here.

This is just what Hitler did in WW2.  The name of God is taken out of the church, schools, and state buildings and replaced with an image of government.

Silence in the face of evil is itself evil: God will not hold us guiltless. Not to speak is to speak. Not to act is to act.  Dietrich Bonhoeffer
