The winds of change are here.
The First Amendment is passe’.
Christianity is being targeted by federal and state governments at the same time they coddle Islam.
In Texas, the Obama Government pressured a pro life group to “keep your faith to yourself.” Pro Life Revolution is a group which provides support for pregnant women in abusive relationships. Countless abortions take place because pregnant women are coerced into them by their abusive husbands/boyfriends/hook-ups.
Pro Life Revolution applied for tax-exempt status in 2011. The IRS, as they have done with other conservative, pro life, and Christian groups, dragged their feet for over two years before approving their status.
Even more, Pro Life Revolution received a phone a phone call, which was recorded, from IRS Exempt Organization Specialist Sherry Wan in March 2012. Ms. Wan leaned on Pro Life Revolution in a most unfriendly way:
“You cannot force your religion or force your beliefs on somebody else…. You have to know your boundaries. You have to know your limits. You have to respect other people’s beliefs.”
In other words, you’re Christian. Shut up.
In Michigan, a similar anti-Christian scenario played itself out. The Roseville Public School System would give permission slips for students to attend a Bible class.
The class was held at a local Baptist Church, not on school property.
The school system did not provide transportation to take the students to the class.
Nonetheless, Muslims were offended. The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) wrote a convincing letter to the school district:
“School staff and teachers are not to serve as advocates for one particular religion or congregation within a religion by passing out slips inviting parents to give permission for their children to attend religious instruction. . . According to the United States Supreme Court, the First Amendment clearly requires that public school students and their parents are never given the impression that their school/school district prefers a specific religion over others or sanctions religion in general.”
The school district caved and apologized.
Over in Dearborn (MI), CAIR made a different demand. They railed that Dearborn schools did not accommodate the prayer requirements of Muslim students. According to the Arab American News, the district caved, as their press release states:
DEARBORN — The Council on American Islamic Relations of Michigan (CAIR-MI) staff recently met with Dearborn Public Schools Superintendent Brian Whiston to discuss concerns from some parents regarding prayer accommodations in Dearborn Public Schools. Dearborn Public Schools has implemented a policy which fully accommodates student-led prayer in all the schools, as well as unexcused absences for students who leave early on Fridays for Jumu’ah prayers. CAIR-MI is currently in discussion with Melvindale Public Schools to get similar accommodations for students that are now in place for Dearborn Public Schools.
