Texas Insider Report: AUSTIN, Texas – A tiny group of Henderson County residents want to force the County Commissioners and the County Judge to remove the nativity scene from the Court House Square in Athens, Texas. A national organization which calls itself Freedom from Religion is backing the Atheists in Henderson County. Mr. Obama mocked Christians once when he didn’t think the microphone was turned on. He insinuated we are backward and ignorant because we cling to our religion and our guns.
He was making fun of us, but we proudly accept the badge of honor Mr. Obama placed on us. A few Atheists cannot take away the things Christians and Texans hold dear.
When they mess with Christmas, they are messing with Texas. We do not take it kindly that one or two Atheists want to force the whole USA to think like they think.
The Atheists are only a tiny minority, but they want to rule. We do not want to take away their right to believe whatever they want to believe, and THEY HAVE NO RIGHT TO TAKE OUR RIGHTS AWAY FROM US.
Their demand to put up a display honoring the Atheistic Religion is disingenuous and childish. They only want to do this to interfere with the Christian celebration.
There is going to be a rally on the Courthouse Square in Athens, TX at NOON ON DECEMBER 17. We are asking everyone to come support the Commissioners and County Judge who have so far stood up to the bullies who want to destroy our First Amendment Rights.
Please understand, this assault is on every religious denomination which believes in God and/or Christ. That includes Baptists, Methodists, Church of Christ, Church of God, Presbyterian, Episcopalians, Mormons, Quakers, Lutherans, Catholics, Jews, etc.
We hope there will be a huge crowd on the Court House Square in Athens, to support the commissioners and the county judge. Local ministers and citizens of all denominations will be there to Lead with messages and prayers for our country and our Constitution which are under assault.
This is going to be a little birthday present for Jesus to thank him for what he has done for all of mankind. We know people are busy at this time of the year but THIS IS CHRIST’S BIRTHDAY for heaven’s sake!!! If you cannot be there, please pray for the rally to be a success.
We should not let a few Atheists keep us from being able to celebrate a birthday in a peaceful manner. If the Atheists do not want to come they have the right to stay home. But they do not have the right to disrupt our meeting. The right to assemble is also one of our rights listed in the first 10 Amendments.
If the Atheists do not want to look at the nativity scene when they walk or drive by the courthouse, they can simply turn their heads.
Many Christians live in foreign countries where the majority of the people worship a different god. They respectfully ignore the religious displays which are common in that country. Christians wouldn’t try to force the foreign country to change the traditions the people have celebrated for centuries or for thousands of years.
In fact, there are some “minority” Christian groups in America who do not worship like other Christian groups, but they don’t try to force everyone to worship on Saturday or observe the same rituals they observe. That is because Christians are basically tolerant people, and they are not bigoted like the Atheists who want to prevent Christians from celebrating Christ’s birthday.
If the Atheists do not like celebrating Christmas, I suggest they go find a country which does everything exactly like they want it done. When they find such a country, they should move there. They’re welcome to stay in this country, but they must behave if they want to live peacefully among us.
In addition to asking Christians to attend the rally in Athens on Dec. 17, I am also asking elected officials from other counties across the Great State of Texas to allow your citizens to put up nativity scenes on the court house squares. Our founding fathers allowed church groups to hold church services inside the court house when the federal buildings were not being used to conduct the people’s business; so there is a precedent for allowing the citizens to use public facilities.
This is America and a few Atheists cannot take away our Constitutional right to Freedom OF Religion just because they do not want religion themselves. They can remain godless if they choose.
America was primarily settled by Christians and Jews who were being persecuted because of their religious beliefs. Christians and Jews are peaceful people. We are not persecuting anyone for their religious beliefs. We simply want to be able to exercise our religious rights which were given to us in the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.
It is time for Christians to draw a line in the sand like William B. Travis did at the Alamo.
Texans will not let them run us out of our own country.
Joseph Stalin said:
“America is like a healthy body, and its resistance is threefold: its patriotism, its morality, and its spiritual life. If we can undermine these three areas, America will collapse from within.
The movie “Agenda” tells about a 1958 Book: “The Naked Communist” by Cleon Scousin (Author’s name may not be spelled correctly.). This book lists 45 Communist goals designed to move our people and our culture in a direction that was designed to destroy us.
Following are a few of those Communist goals from the 1958 book, “The Naked Communist”:
Goal # 28: Eliminate prayer in the schools on the grounds that it violates the principle of “Separation of Church and State.”
Goal # 40: Discredit the family as an institution. Encourage promiscuity and easy divorce.
Goal # 17: Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for Socialism…Soften the curriculum. Get control of teacher associations.
Goal # 24: Eliminate all laws governing obscenity by calling them”censorship” and a violation of free speech and free press.
Goal # 25: Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography in books, magazines, motion pictures, and television.
Goal # 26: Present homosexuality, degeneracy, and promiscuity as “normal, natural, and healthy.”
Goals # 20 – 21: Infiltrate the press; gain control of key positions in radio, television, and motion pictures.
Goal # 27: Infiltrate the churches and replace revealed religion with “social” religion. Discredit the Bible.
The Communists have been quietly working behind the scenes to destroy Americans’ inalienable rights listed in the Constitution and Bill of Rights. Their goal is to destroy our foundations and everything Americans believe in.
Recently the military changed the rules about homosexuals serving openly in the military.
California schools teach first graders how to have sex and the curriculum teaches them they can choose if they want to be a boy or a girl.
President Obama omitted the words “Endowed by our Creator” from the Declaration of Independence. He made this “mistake” twice.
A Democratic campaign commercial showed children reciting the Pledge of Allegiance. The words “under God” were omitted (twice).
The ACLU filed suit: Navy Chaplains Can No Longer Mention Jesus’ Name In Prayer.
College adds Sexual Orientation to Application – to Increase Diversity.
College Bans National Anthem – Too Violent.
Mayor of New York City (Bloomberg) did not invite clergy to the 911 Memorial Service.
ACLU filed suit to have a cross removed from the side of a rural dessert road. The cross had been there for over fifty years.
The Ten Commandments have been removed form the walls of most schools. Some people think words such as Don’t kill, Don’t steal, and Honor your parents might be harmful to children.
Some cities and towns have passed ordinances disallowing “Manger Scenes” at Christmas time, and store clerks have been ordered to say “Happy Winter” or “Happy Holidays” instead of “Merry Christmas”.
There was a recent proposal to change the way we count time. Don’t use BC and AD any more because those designations tie all time to the birth of Christ. They want to call it Common Time now. Thankfully this did not pass.
The U.S. mint “accidentally” printed silver dollars without the U.S. Motto, “In God We Trust.” They recalled the coins and printed the motto on the edge of the coins so that you can now see the words if you have a magnifying glass.
The president almost always displays a flag behind him when he speaks. The flag bears the words “E. Pluribus Unum.” This is a subtle and gradual attempt to change the national motto from “In God We Trust” to “E. Pluribus Unum”. Liberals interpret these words to mean “Out of one — Many” implying America is a nation of diverse people.
But the motto actually means “Out of Many — ONE” which actually means the USA is a UNITED country though the people come from many places. E. Pluribus Unum encourages assimilation, NOT diversity. The first three letters of diversity are “div.” These are also the first three letters of the word Divide as in “United we stand; Divided we fall.”
Diversity ( noun) To give variety to something, To engage in varied operations, to distribute over a wide range of types or classes.
di-verse (adj.) unalike in characteristics, having various forms or qualities.
It is time to get involved. Ask your local Tea Party to show the movie “Agenda”.
We must get organized before the election of Nov, 6, 2012. We must replace elected officials who have a Socialistic Agenda in mind for the United States of America. We must elect representatives who believe the Constitution is the law of the land. We must be informed about our rights so socialists cannot twist the meaning of the words in the Constitution and make us believe the Constitution says something it does not say.
Those who want to take away our freedoms cannot be taken for granted; they are devious and very clever. We must stand up to them and fight back with informed rebuttal.
