I want to digress back to Christmas for a moment in this edition of CrossChek. Let see if I remember this correctly–virtually all department stores have mandated through policy, signage, and whatever method is needed that Merry Christmas is struck in favor of Happy Holidays. The age old tradition of putting up a crèche in the public square has been pretty successfully squelched lest some poor soul that believes in a false god, or no god at all is offended. But all that is really aimed only at Christianity. You disagree perhaps.
If so this may prove you wrong. Evidently it is okay for a bunch of hateful, zealous, atheists, who want to not only offend, but actually abuse, those of us that are Christians . . . NO PROBLEM!
At least it is not in a problem in the Illinois State Capital Building (who was it from Illinois that just won a big election in “08?). The radical FfRF (Freedom From Religion Foundation) posted and was allowed to post this sign in the Capital Building which states:
At this season of the Winter Solstice, may reason prevail. There are no gods, no devils, no angels, no heaven or hell. There is only our natural world. Religion is but a myth and superstition that hardens hearts and enslaves minds.
I thought it was the Christians who are “narrow-minded” and “intolerant.” Evidently this sign hanging in the IL Capital is not a problem for Secretary of State Jesse White who is “omnipotent” over state property regs. Obviously freedom of speech as posited in the First Amendment of the United States Constitution and in conjunction with the 14th Amendment, which forbids state action that has the effect of disapproving, inhibiting or evincing hostility toward religion only applies to Christians. It clearly must not apply to atheists, agnostics, etc..
So now I am clear on this. It is only Christians that can’t use hate speech, or commit hate crimes like putting up a crèche in our town square or even on our private property. Don’t you feel better about understanding who is in the right and who is not.
There is good news though. A lawsuit has been brought against Mr. White by a William J. Kelly. According to World Net Daily, the lawsuit, filed in the Northern District in Illinois, said, “The United States Supreme Court has specifically held, for instance, that the Constitution affirmatively mandates accommodation, not merely tolerance, of all religions, and forbids hostility toward any …”
At least somebody has some guts! Can I say guts or is that hate speech against fat people?
