If it is on your radar you know that the Anglican church in Africa has split from the world wide communion of the Anglican church over the issue of homosexuality. The African church has read their Bibles and determined that since they are supposed to be Christians they should follow what the Bible says. Thus they removed three priests for their homosexual activities. Now something called “The Employment and Relations Court” has ordered the church to reinstate the priests and pay them their back salaries. This is a dangerous step for freedom of religion in the world.
Read your First Amendment.
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.In order to keep the government from establishing the requirements of such things as church attendance, tax supported churches, government appointed pastors and government mandated doctrines those little things called “the establishment clause” and the “free exercise clause” were inserted. If you look at the remaining freedoms mentioned in the First and Second Amendments and know anything of the religious wars of England you can see how all of those are necessary to guarantee freedom of worship. The Progressive leaning courts are committed to undermining and destroying that freedom.
The reason free worship is such a problem to the Progressives is that it places God above the elites of congress and education. It says that there are limits to government power. It maintains that the rights we have are “endowed by their Creator” and not granted at the whim of bureaucrats.
What is a guarantee of freedom for citizens is a threat of limitation to the power of elites.
Be aware of the courts working to take away all of your freedoms. Keep in mind that it is just to keep you safe. If is for your own protection. You need mature, Progressive adults to limit your choices so that Utopia will arrive.
