When will the outstanding Christian leaders in this country start speaking out against not only the atrocities against Christians all over the world but here in our country? There is growing anti-Semitism and a war against Christians here. Even Jesus called the Pharisees vipers when they corrupted the Temple. Recently I read a report from Alliance Defending Freedom about the harm wrought against Christian values and religious liberty internationally by our own government during the Obama administration. Quote: "We've had good U.S. State Departments and we've had bad State Departments, but we've never had anything like we have now. Our own government, using your tax dollars, is coercing poor nations around the world to line up and bow down to radical policies regarding abortion and redefining marriage. The Obama Administration is trying to force nations across the globe to redefine marriage, limit their populations in many ways, including increased abortion, and to curtail religious liberty. The demands were clear: support this radical agenda, or the U.S. government would cut off aid. Many poor countries felt they had no choice but to conform." Reference AllianceDefendingFreedom.org for more information.

For decades the ACLU has been working to destroy religious freedom in this country and yet very few are speaking up. So how about you? Some have said to me, "It must take courage to write a letter to the editor and sign your name." For me it's a deep abiding faith that to stay silent denotes approval of what is going on. I, in all good conscience, cannot stay silent when I see corruption of our liberties being eradicated on a daily basis. Yes, there are rebuttals but what is happening here today happened in Germany prior to World War II and if we stay silent we could pay dearly for it.
