I'm sickened by what I knew was coming long ago. From what many now observe and believe themselves, Christian beliefs are becoming passe, politically incorrect, close minded, anti everything, insignificant, biased, and myth-like.
The numbers of those who embrace Christianity have dwindled. Christian churches across America have closed their doors.
Those of you who are not Christians, do understand that believers have a moral code and many of you yourselves also embrace somewhat conservative beliefs. You may be atheist or agnostic but you desire to raise your kids in a productive way where they obey the laws, have integrity, and character... all positive attributes that ensure a promising future.
What's wrong with removing prayer from schools? Same sex marriage across the nation? Removing the Ten Commandments? Stopping the Pledge of Allegiance("One nation under God")? Saying or printing Happy Holidays instead of Merry Christmas? And on and on...
What does it hurt if people want to choose how to live their lives and not have certain belief structures shoved down their throats. Well! The reverse is happening. Christians are being persecuted. Our nostrils are filled with the stench of moral decay and if we attempt to display the ways of Christ and His teachings, we get a door slammed in our face.
I read where a bakery shop owner was recently forced by the court system to pay a gay couple $175,000 because they refused to service their wedding.
Wow! Yeah... dill's soap box.
