WEEKLY UPDATE FOR FEBRUARY 10TH, 2017
Greetings from Tyler,
Religious liberty in the United States used to mean that the government couldn’t interfere in the beliefs or actions of people’s conduct of their own lives, providing that they weren’t violating established laws or the rights of other citizens. There was certainly no thought that the state could compel citizens to activity in violation of Biblical tenets, period. That was then, before every agency of government was the arbiter of fairness and equality, applied to foreigners as well as citizens.
It was also prior to the time that the State required us to pay for “health insurance” policies that include sex change operations, abortions and a host of services inapplicable to pretty much everybody with any traditional belief system considered religious. As every American knows, it is a mandate, required of every citizen. As for the hordes of foreigners thrust into our midst, they needn’t worry too much about the government’s mandate. They’re all on the receiving end of it anyway. But, as all we American citizens know, the fine, or is it a tax, extracted from those of us who refuse to participate, also pays for all manner of elective nonsense, including various psychological therapies so much in demand post-election.
Now, according to some of the lawsuits raining down on the new administration from organizations funded by George Soros, “religious liberty” now means that people wanting to enter the country, even from nations that have transformed into sprawling terrorist training centers, have a Constitutional “right” to come into the United States at the expense of citizens who’ve been robbed of their own rights and liberties by the government. It doesn’t matter if their form of religion demands our transformation to the tenets of Islam, or the necessity that they give their lives to wipe out as many infidels as possible. It doesn’t even matter if they hold Sharia (Muslim religious law) to be a higher authority than the Constitution that has been convoluted by activist judges to force them upon us.
Holding Sharia dear means they may very well practice brutal female mutilation and believe fervently in their right to carry out “honor killings.” Some of the most western-oriented, civilized Muslims living in the west do, in fact, hold open the possibility of “honor killing” for any female that “dishonors” the family. And it doesn’t take much, by American standards, for that possibility to be triggered. If, for example, a girl or woman dares go out of the home escorted by someone other than a mother, father or brother, that could do it. If she’s escorted by a male, not from her own family, or seen to be flirtatious in public, chances are she’s as good as dead…
