My question is: When will we (christian folks) say its enough of taking our "rights" away from us all?? Its our Nation, lets Stand Up and say ITS enough!!!!! I'm sick of people getting offended about everything we Christian Americans are doing. What about these other religions that is pushing their way into our Great Nation (ONE NATION UNDER GOD)?? I'm just tired of it all, I would love to see our Counties turn back to our Lord and start praying on our knees. WE are going to be sorry if we don't.
Look at the world today, its unreal. Someone always telling us WE can't pray. ITS shameful that they are telling us this When in fact this is OUR NATION! Wake us FOLKS, lets starting taking back our RIGHTS as ONE NATION UNDER GOD. Stop believing we can't do nothing WE ALL can if we COME together!!!!!!!!!!
KEY WORD: COME together in Unity. Stop judging our brother and sisters, just love them, pray for them. WE are going to need them all one day to fight for our Families.
Jesus Lord Please help us all to see.

Look at all the signs in this world. If you are 40,50,60 and even 70 yrs.old look how far this world has changed since you were little. Its sickening to see the world in this kind of shape! Creedy people making that dollar and don't allow you to attend church on Sundays. That is the Lords day folks!!!
If we could just Stop and realize "PRAYING DAYS" back then was the answer to everything. That's what made this Nation great was people from all walks of life knew their was Freedom in America because we worship a TRUE KING!
Now days you can't even mention the name JESUS CHRIST because someone gets upset, well they all need to just get over it!!! WE need to step back and start from the good ole days, spending time on our knees before the LORD.

I think it is a real shame that Christians seem to be losing their rights. We are a powerful group and can band together and make a difference when we have had enough. I would begin with not buying from any store that does not recognize Christmas.

Your rights........do your rights include pushing your religion on everyone else? You may want to think of it from both sides, as soon as you gain the ability to have state sponsored prayer, you open it up to ALL religions. We are a diverse nation, keep at it, you'll get what you ask for.

In all sincerity I ask which rights are being taken away from Christians? I'm a Christian and I can't think of any that I've lost.

When we think of America, most think of freedom. When compared to many nations, we are a free country, but I wonder how many have noticed our rights being taken away incrementally? It starts with little things, and the intrusion on our liberties grow larger. I am going to mention examples I know of personally, and I welcome anyone else to add to this list.

1. The right to decide about our children's education. What gives the government the right to mandate that parents have to send their children to school? Why shouldn't farmers for instance, who have children, be able to raise their kids up to be the future farmers, instead of sending them to school?

2. The right of an employer to pay an employee what he feels is a fair wage based on the market. Why should someone be forced to pay a wage they cannot afford because the government decides on a minimum wage?

3. The right of an employer to hire who they want with their own money. What gives the government the right to force someone to hire people they don't wish to, based on anti-descrimination legislation? I can see that with regard to government institutions, but not private businesses.

4. The right of a church to take political positions. Why should a church be forced to pay taxes just because they want to exercise their right to free speech? Political speech and Christian doctrine sometimes go hand in hand, when it comes to preaching about good and evil.

5. The right to use your property as you see fit. Why should the government be able to use zoning laws to prevent you from doing what you want with your own property?

6. The right of the automobile industry to decide for themselves what kind of automobiles to make. The government has no business setting safe standards, and should not be creating unreasonable environmental standards that prevent the sale of high mileage diesel powered cars that are currently being sold overseas.

7. The right of individuals to own weapons. While the government has not completely stripped us of our right to bear arms, they have taken things to an unconstitutional level, and are trying to move further in this direction.

8. The right of individuals to drill for oil, without having the government tell them they cannot because of environmentalists. The government has been putting this nation at risk by making us dependent on foreign oil, when we have a large supply under our feet.

We have been gradually allowing the government to take away our freedoms, without considering that once they have taken away one thing, they will move to strip you of other rights. I know that it was not that long ago the liberal judges on the Supreme Court ruled the government can take your house and tear it down to build something that will bring the city more tax revenue. This is clearly an abuse, and completely unconstitutional.

I think it is time that we put liberals on the defensive, and start trying to repeal the laws already on the books that are stripping us of our rights. It seems that when they take one piece of ground, they move on to the next, figuring nobody can ever do anything about it anymore. We need to start forcing them to defend what they already have, so they don't have as much time and resources to push for more laws.

You went on an off topic rant. How are Christians losing their "rights?"

I think when religion has enough power to tell counties that it is against the law to even have alcohol in your possession, they seem to be forcing their beliefs on everybody already. What more rights do you think Christians deserve? I am curious to what extent you want to extend the Christianity Power? The United States, whether we like it or not is made up of more than just Christianity, now do you want to be fair to all of them or be an oppressive religion and rule by might makes right?

Agreed. When religion of any kind Christian or otherwise has control of a government whats going on in Egypt happens.

For instance : Taking prayer out of public schools! Telling us We can't have prayer in them and if we do they (people) will throw a fit or say we offend them!! But these other religions can pray to their Gods anytime and we as Jesus christians shouldn't say anything. Telling us that we can't how Bible studies in our homes. That's another example of our rights taken away. Now the Government wants to control our schools with non American curriculum. When does it stop???? Im tired of other countries running this Great Nation we call AMERICA THE GREAT!

SOUNDS like to me you have a attitude toward Prayer in school. I wonder how many times someone in your family prayed many of Prayers for you or a family member? It seems most other religious only attacks the Jesus Christ Christians the most anyway I wonder if its because they know their is Power in that name? I don't have a religion like most I most differently have a true relationship with my God so there is a big difference

What about killing these innocent babies? Is that right?? What about teaching killing in other countries that believes that you only must serve "their gods"? Is that right??
What is wrong with the world is people has turned their back on the King of King and his mercy will not last forever on this nasty, ugly, hateful world. Look at how things is going today, the wonders and signs is telling us all We need to fall upon our knees and Pray like never before!!
The judgment is coming very soon, every knee shall bow One day, I hope your God/Gods will save your eternal soul in the end. Im not pushing nothing on you Im just stating the fact that I know.

Last time I checked prayer of any kind isn't allowed in a public school. Christian or otherwise. I'm sure no one has told you that you can't have a service of any kind in your own private home. If someone has and you believed them... It's your own fault for not knowing your rights.... I'm not even sure what a "non American curriculum" would be. You're right we should never be ashamed of the gospel if Christ but we live in a county where you can single out an individual for their beliefs. We should teach our children to pray themselves. There is nothing wrong with saying a prayer to yourself while in school.

I hope and PRAY that this nation that we call the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA will fall on their knees and pray to the Lord above to have mercy upon all of us cause in the near future we are going to need our sisters and brothers in christ. Its funny how people have double standards in America. They say Christians are crazy but they don't mind speeding the green (money) that they earn everyday!
The reason I say Double standards is because they LOVE to spend the money that the LORD has blessed the USA with all these years and it HAS on the back IN GOD WE TRUST! If people don't like the blessing that our GOD pours out on his people why do people like to spend that money?
IS killing innocent babies right??? No, its not!
Freedom is what made this nation great, everyone wanted to come from other countries to the USA because we had the freedom. Slowly everyday it is getting taken away. Just like the gun laws, telling us that we can't pray in public, for the courtrooms to take down the ten commandments, take down the CROSSES (that stood for a meaning), freedom of speech (isn't really allowed anymore), etc...... IF AMericans keep sitting back the other countries will take over AMERICA and it will not be the FREEDOM we all know!!!!

So you really think that god cares what country you are from, what political party you are affiliated with? That's pretty messed up to think that god cares for this country's citizens more than others. That's one F'ed up god..... Again you'll get what you're asking for is you pursue it. Your cause is easy to pursue when you have tunnel vision and cannot see that our country is diverse and always has been. Your sense of freedom is perverse, it seems as though freedom should only apply to those of the Christian religion....have fun with that one.

My God is controller of all this world. You may not agree with me but I fully understand the King James Bible a lot better then you do. My God cares about you as well maybe there's reason why this forum was started so that you can see that HE loves you just as much as he loves me. Sounds like to me that you may have a problem with my words that I have posted about the King of King, I will never give up the fight to act and live for what I know is right in the eyes of Jesus our Lord and Savior. Its always worth fighting for something that you know is right. Freedom is always at a price to pay, I mean look at all the Soldiers that died so that YOU and I could have Freedom today?!! It wasn't Free! It was a price to bare so that YOU and I could live and worship freely. I will keep you (whoever you are) in my thoughts and Prayers that you will see the light in your tunnel vision that you have of me.

by the way. GOD loves the Muslims just as much as he does anyone. WE must pray for everyone in this nation good or bad that they will come to know the Lord and Savior like I do. Jesus didn't hang on that cross for nothing. He didn't rise again for nothing! He came to Earth so that you could have everlasting life in the Kingdom of God. That is something to live for daily.
