FREEDOM OR ANARCHY,Campaign of Conscience

The Free Thought Project,The Daily Sheeple & FREEDOM OR ANARCHY Campaign of Conscience are dedicated to holding those who claim authority over our lives accountable. “Each of us has a unique part to play in the healing of the world.”
“Every record has been destroyed or falsified, every book rewritten, every picture has been repainted, every statue and street building has been renamed, every date has been altered. And the process is continuing day by day and minute by minute. History has stopped. Nothing exists except an endless present in which the Party is always right.” - George Orwell, 1984

"Until the philosophy which holds one race superior and another inferior is finally and permanently discredited and abandoned, everywhere is war and until there are no longer first-class and second-class citizens of any nation, until the color of a man's skin is of no more significance than the color of his eyes. And until the basic human rights are equally guaranteed to all without regard to race, there is war. And until that day, the dream of lasting peace, world citizenship, rule of international morality, will remain but a fleeting illusion to be pursued, but never attained... now everywhere is war." - - Haile Selassie I of Ethiopia - Popularized by Bob Marley in the song War

STEALING FROM THE CITIZENRY

The right to tell the Government to kiss my Ass Important Message for All Law Enforcers Freedom; what it is, and what it is not. Unadulterated freedom is an unattainable goal; that is what the founders of America knew and understood, which was their impetus behind the documents that established our great nation. They also knew that one of the primary driving forces in human nature is the unconscious desire to be truly free. This meant to them that mankind if totally left completely unrestricted would pursue all things in life without any awareness or acknowledgement of the consequences of his/her own actions leaving only the individual conscience if they had one as a control on behavior. This would not bode well in the development of a great society. Yet the founders of America chose to allow men/women as much liberty as could be, with minimum impact on the freedom or liberties of others

THE WAR ON THE CROSS

THE WAR ON THE CROSS

There is a war being waged against a major symbol of Christianity – the cross.
In 1925, a large cross was erected in Bladensburg, Maryland, to honor fallen soldiers of World War I. But now that cross is being challenged by a lawsuit from the American Humanist Association. It lost its 2014 lawsuit against it, but it is appealing the case.
Last week, there was a bipartisan effort among members of Congress to save the Bladensburg cross. They filed a friend of the court brief to support this memorial.
First Liberty Institute is instrumental in the fight to save the cross from being demolished. It has been leading the charge in fighting these kinds of cases.
First Liberty Institute’s founder and president is Kelly Shackelford, who said, “In a time when America is divided over many issues, there is one thing members of the House and Senate, both Democratic and Republican, have agreed on, along with 90 percent of the American public – our veterans memorials should be protected. We must always strive to honor the selfless sacrifice of our fallen heroes.”
Jeremy Dys is an attorney with First Liberty, and I spoke with him about the case on my radio show recently.
Jeremy told me, “There seems to be a general allergy to religion any time any religious symbol appears in public.” He noted this applies to Christian symbols in particular and stars of David.
Dys said, “What we’re attempting to do in all these cases is to allow these veterans who erect these monuments to honor their comrades who have fallen in arms.”

He noted, “In the case of the Bladensburg Veterans Memorial outside of Washington, D.C., that was actually even erected by the mothers of these fallen soldiers from World War I.”
Dys added, “When you have these moms who scraped together dimes and nickels in order to be able to erect this memorial, and you still have children and grandchildren and probably great-grandchildren now that gather around that memorial on Armistice Day, it’s remarkable that someone would have the gall to try to knock down what one mother called ‘the tombstone of her son that she could actually visit,’ instead of the one that’s listed in Flanders Field.”
The American Humanist Association sued to have this cross removed because it believes it violates the separation of church and state, because the cross supposedly establishes religion.
The Constitution does not mention the “separation of church and state.” Instead, the First Amendment begins, “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion or prohibiting the free exercise thereof …”
Historically, it was understood in America that “establishing religion” was the creation of a national church, such as the Church of England, which was “by law established.” When we became a free country, this was no longer to be the case – that we would have a state church at the national level “by law established.”
At the time of the adoption of the Constitution and the First Amendment, even some of the individual states had state churches. That was not ideal, and they withered away of their own volition.
But to say that having a memorial cross to honor the fallen “establishes religion” distorts the founders’ words.
These groups that sue against crosses in the public square attempt to jettison America from our true history.
It was the founders of this nation that systematically hired chaplains for the military and legislatures. For the first 200 years or so of our national existence, most of their prayers were Christian ones.
The founders declared national days of thanksgiving to God. Jefferson did that on the state level, but refused to do that on the national level because he thought it was the province of the states.
Our nation’s first commander in chief was, of course, George Washington. I’ve visited his tomb at Mount Vernon and written in stone above his sarcophagus are the words of Jesus Christ from John 11 – promising that those who believe in Him will live, even after they die. Do those words need to be sandblasted away?
Of course, ultimately the cross is controversial because it points to Jesus’ voluntary sacrifice to forgive sinners who believe.
Meanwhile, if we don’t defend the memorial crosses now, we could go the way of China, where it is reported that the Communist government is now undertaking a systematic removal of thousands of crosses in that country, including those atop churches.
This war on the cross by anti-Christian legal groups reminds me of the movie portrayal of Count Dracula, who flinches and becomes powerless at even the sight of a cross. I pray they will not succeed in their efforts to tear down these memorial crosses to honor the fallen.
