MONTGOMERY, Ala., Nov. 18, 2021 /Christian Newswire/ — Pastor Harold Shurtleff and Camp Constitution wanted to hold an event in the Boston Commons. But when they asked to raise their Christian flag on the City flagpole, Boston said no.
On the surface that might not seem surprising — until we learn that 284 organizations have asked to raise their flags on the City flagpole during the past 15 years, and the City of Boston has approved every one of them — except the Christian flag, which features a cross.
Virginia’s George Mason – Purpose of Bill of Rights is to Limit Government!
“Congress shall make no law respecting the establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof.”Thus began the first of the Ten Amendments, or Bill of Rights, which were approved SEPTEMBER 25, 1789.
“The Father of the Bill of Rights” was George Mason of Virginia.George Mason was the richest man in Virginia, owning 15,000 acres…
RICHMOND, Va., Oct. 28, 2021 /Christian Newswire/ — The Parental Rights Foundation, on behalf of a Virginia family, today sued Virginia Attorney General Mark Herring, challenging a new Virginia statute that says parents may not consider religion when hiring a babysitter.
Jane and Scott adopted their daughter, M.W., in 2015. Because M.W. has medical conditions, the couple has hired babysitters to help with her care for several hours each week, helping her get ready for school, driving her to and from school, and supervising her after school…

On January 16, 1993, President George H. W. Bush proclaimed the first Religious Freedom Day, commemorating the anniversary of the 1786 passage of the Virginia Statute for Religious Freedom. That statute was authored by Thomas Jefferson, and it served as a model for the opening lines of the First Amendment. President Bush noted in his Religious Freedom Day proclamation that freedom of religion is the “first of all freedoms enumerated in our Bill of Rights.”
Those who violate the Law need to pay the fair and just penalty under said law of that no one should disagree. Yet in America, you are now guilty until proven innocent and treated like prisoners in a gulag.This is wrong and unconstitutionalno matter the crime.

Notwithstanding all the hysterical rhetoric surrounding the events of January 6, 2021, two critical things stand out. The first is that what happened was much more hoax than insurrection. In fact, in my judgment, it wasn’t an insurrection at all. . .
CONTEXT:Chapter 1 includes a brief introduction (Philippians 1:1–2) followed by three key sections. First, Paul gives thanks and prayer on behalf of the Philippian Christians (Philippians 1:3–11). Second, he focuses on the expansion of the gospel (Philippians 1:12–18). Third, he emphasizes that, for the believer, to live is Christ and to die is gain (Philippians 1:19–30). Along the way, Paul explains that how the Christian life is a reflection of what they set their mind on. He stresses the importance of rejoicing and joy and connects the faith to concepts such as glory.
Our text today would seem to be a verse that all peoples could get behind, but we would of course be wrong in our postmodern world. Think of it who would object to someone loving more, by using knowledge and discernment.
It is not until we apply the last word that folks take issue. You see they want you to love everyone (especially them), they want you to think you are smart (even if they think you are dumb and treat you as such) but apply discernment and you have crossed the line.
Discernment according to Webster’s 1828 dictionary is The act of discerning; also, the power or faculty of the mind, by which it distinguishes one thing from another, as truth from falsehood, virtue from vice; acuteness of judgment; the power of perceiving differences of things or ideas, and their relations and tendencies. The errors of youth often proceed from the want of discernment.
Everyone applies this to their daily lives. We make judgments on what to buy, what is safe, who our kids should or should not hang out with, etc. These JUDGEMENTS are part of our normal routine and no one complains, until…
… once you start using your “smarts” and applying discernment, especially in a Biblical manner, then you are a Bigot, Racist, or some newfangled term I can’t keep up with. If you speak out against Abortion, any LGBTQ issue or anything the Bible says we are to stand up for you are labeled a troublemaker and accused of being judgemental.
Or maybe we are just dedicated Christians and believers in the Constitution, no matter the label.
James Monroe, 5th President “When the people become ignorant & corrupt … they become the willing instruments of their own … ruin”
James Monroe’s great-grandfather, Captain Andrew Monroe, fought as a Royalist on behalf of King Charles I in the English Civil War. He was taken prisoner, and in 1647, was exiled to Virginia. There Andrew acquired a farm, which grew in two generations to 1,100 acres, part of which was inherited by Colonel Spence Monroe. Spence signed Richard Henry Lee’s Westmoreland Protests in 1765 against the British Stamp Act. Spence’s son, James Monroe, was born APRIL 28, 1758, and was baptized in the Anglican Church in Washington Parish, Westmoreland County, Virginia, the same country George Washington was born in…
“Befuddling.” “Inexplicable.” “Baffling.” Those are just three of the words Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas used to describe his colleagues’ latest response to the 2020 election. After three months of mixed signals, the justices finally turned down a case that had most conservatives holding their breaths — a lawsuit against Pennsylvania’s expanded mail-in balloting order. The issue, many said, was moot. But the dangers of lawlessness, Thomas fired back, is not…
