In today’s PC wars, Christians will be the sacrificial lambs offered to satisfy the “Ugly Left Mob”…

The United States has entered a new era of heresy hunting and witch burning. In today’s PC wars, Christians will be the sacrificial lambs offered to satisfy the mob, hauled off to the hoosegow just as their forefathers in the faith were taken to the Coliseum to keep pagan Romans happy.
Our sliding nation has already reached a point where Americans celebrate their fellow citizens being taken away in chains for believing their faith. “Our” government is not merely complicit but its chief enforcer—and sadly, it is a bipartisan undertaking.
When Christians begin to be hauled off to the hoosegow for refusing to participate in sin, can the nation be far from that time Christ warned about: “the time is coming that whoever kills you will think that he is offering a service to God” (John 16:2)?
Christians are strong not weak. It takes strength to tell someone the truth when he/she does not want to hear it. It takes strength to go against the crowd and against what has become the norm. It takes strength to stand when all others are kneeling and bowing to a secular mindset. When the media tells one on a daily basis that the thing God abhors is good and the righteousness of God is backwards, inflammatory, mean, judgmental, and hypocritical. It takes strength to stand in adversity. To love when you are hated. Jesus said the days will come when men will hate you for my sake. That is exactly what is happening. Jesus did have a few choice words for hard-hearted, stiff-necked, stubborn individuals. He said it in love, they took it with offense. Remember, Jesus said what He said out of love, that is why He could say what He said, cast out devils, heal the sick, raise the dead etc. Are we doing the same? Jesus said, “The works I do shall you do also because I go unto my Father.” Power is not just when we talk the talk, but when we also walk the walk. Be blessed!!
As Kim Davis was dragged out of a federal courtroom to a local jail cell for refusing to violate her religious beliefs about sexuality and marriage, a group of LGBT activists chanted out their response.
Seeing Davis sent to jail for an ideological crime, in a capricious decision that ignores the First Amendment, they shouted: “Love won! Love won!”
With that, the first hints of twilight gathered over America’s religious liberty as a dark day of Christian persecution dawns in our nation.
“Having Kim Davis in federal custody removes all doubt of the criminalization of Christianity in our country,” Mike Huckabee said. Ted Cruz agreed, “Those who are persecuting Kim Davis believe that Christians should not serve in public office.”
It actually goes further than that. Homosexual activist extremists have never been coy about their desire to use the power of the state to legitimize their lifestyle choice. Having won that, they want to see Christians —and those of any other faith who disagree with their agenda—driven out of every segment of American society: fired from corporate board rooms, demoted in the military, cut loose from fire departments, and forced to close any business they may run.
But Davis’ arrest on Thursday—for “contempt of court” by U.S. District Judge David Bunning, a Republican appointee—raises the ante. For the first time, a Christian who refuses to participate in the gay “marriage” ceremony has been sent to jail for her beliefs.
Forget the fact that Davis, as an elected official—unlike Bunning, or the Supreme Court for that matter—may better reflect the views of her Kentucky constituents than the policy positions of GLAAD. She, and all faithful Christians, must be taught a lesson. Davis will serve as the example that one simply does not stand up to the world’s most powerful, aggressive, politically influential “persecuted minority.”
It should come as little surprise that Hillary Clinton supports The Man and the mob. She retweeted a news story of Davis’ arrest with the message: “Marriage equality is the law of the land. Officials should be held to their duty to uphold the law—end of story.”
Of course, it was not that long ago that Hillary and her cohorts flooded the media with the message that the law doesn’t matter, especially if it involves sexuality and a courthouse. Suddenly, she has morphed into the George Wallace/”law and order” candidate of 2016.
The Obama administration also found the imprisonment of intellectual dissidents to be “appropriate,” since —in the words of White House press secretary Josh Earnest – “the principle of the rule of law is central to our democracy.”
The rule of law apparently does not apply to the Obama administration’s refusal to defend the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), his multiple grants of executive amnesty to illegal aliens covered by the never-passed DREAM Act, his appointment of “recess” appointees when Congress was not actually in recess, or his even his numerous actions to ignore the wording of his own ObamaCare law.
Obama can be a serially lawless president, and that’s fine. But a Christian refuses to personally participate in a union that Barack Obama said he opposed when he ran for president in 2008? Off with her head!
The politics, though they sometimes provide a moment’s satisfaction, can obscure the deeper moral and spiritual aspects of this shift.

WHAT IS CHRISTIAN PERSECUTION?

Christian persecution is any hostility experienced from the world as a result of one’s identification as a Christian. From verbal harassment to hostile feelings, attitudes and actions, Christians in areas with severe religious restrictions pay a heavy price for their faith. Beatings, physical torture, confinement, isolation, rape, severe punishment, imprisonment, slavery, discrimination in education and employment, and even death are just a few examples of the persecution they experience on a daily basis.

According to The Pew Research Center, over 75% of the world’s population lives in areas with severe religious restrictions (and many of these people are Christians). Also, according to the United States Department of State, Christians in more than 60 countries face persecution from their governments or surrounding neighbors simply because of their belief in Jesus Christ.

WHERE DOES CHRISTIAN PERSECUTION OCCUR?

The World Watch List ranks the top 50 countries where Christians face the greatest persecution. See what life is like for persecuted Christians in each of these countries.

WHY PERSECUTION OCCURS:

AUTHORITARIAN GOVERNMENTS SEEK TO CONTROL ALL RELIGIOUS THOUGHT AND EXPRESSION
There are numerous reasons why Christians are persecuted. In some countries, severe abuse of Christians takes place under authoritarian governments. In the case of North Korea and other communist countries, authoritarian governments seek to control all religious thought and expression as part of a comprehensive plan to control all aspects of political and civic life. These governments regard some religious groups as enemies of the state because they hold religious beliefs that may challenge loyalty to the rulers.

HOSTILITY TOWARDS NONTRADITIONAL AND MINORITY RELIGIOUS GROUPS IMAGE OF NIGERIA
Another reason why Christians are persecuted is hostility towards nontraditional and minority religious groups. For example, in Niger, more than 98 percent of the population is Islamic, and hostility comes more from society than from the government. Historically, Islam in West Africa has been moderate, but in the last 20 years, dozens of Islamic associations have emerged, like the Izala movement, which aims to restrict the freedom of ‘deviant Muslims’ and minority religious groups like Christians.

THE LACK OF BASIC HUMAN RIGHTS
The lack of basic human rights is another significant part of persecution in some countries. For instance, in Eritrea, there are violations of the freedom of expression, assembly, and religious belief and movement, in addition to extrajudicial killings, enforced disappearances, extended detention, torture, and indefinite national service, which cause many Eritreans to flee the country.

Freedom of religion, like all freedoms of thought and expression, is inherent. Our beliefs help define who we are and serve as a foundation for what we contribute to our societies. However, today, many people live under governments that abuse or restrict freedom of religion. Christians in such areas suffer deeply, and are denied basic freedoms that humans should be entitled to.

In 1948, the United Nations General Assembly adopted the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. This declaration came as a result of the treatment of the Jews in Nazi Germany. The document states that every person is entitled to basic human rights. This reaffirmed the dignity and worth of all human beings no matter what a person’s race, color, sex, language, religion, political or other opinion, national or social origin, property, birth, or other status. In 1966, the United Nations developed the International Covenant of Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR) in addition to the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Article 18 of the ICCPR focuses on four elements of religious freedom:

Everyone shall have the right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion. This right shall include freedom to have or to adopt a religion or belief of his choice, and freedom, either individually or in community with others, and in public or private, to manifest his religion or belief in worship, observance, practice and teaching.

No one shall be subject to coercion which would impair his freedom to have or to adopt a religion or belief of his choice.
Freedom to manifest one’s religion or beliefs may be subject only to such limitations as are prescribed by law and are necessary to protect public safety, order, health, or morals or the fundamental rights and freedoms of others.

The States Parties to the present Covenant undertake to have respect for the liberty of parents and, when applicable, legal guardians to ensure the religious and moral education of their children in conformity with their own convictions.

A Note for our Readers:
Support SrhNews.Blog to help build a global news network that provides a credible source for world news We believe Christians need and deserve their own global news network to keep the worldwide Church informed, and to offer Christians a positive alternative to the anti-Christian bigotry of the mainstream news media. Ever since Donald Trump was elected president, it is painfully clear that the mainstream media covers liberals glowingly and conservatives critically.
Now journalists spread false, negative rumors about President Trump before any evidence is even produced.
Americans need an alternative to the mainstream media. That’s why SrhNews. Blog exists. Please make a gift to support SrhNews.Blog
