One Nation Under God…

And that God to which the Pledge of Allegiance is referring, is not Allah, who is not the same as the Christian God.

Now that students attending public schools are no longer forced to participate in the recitation of the Pledge of Allegiance, they are free to be forced to delve into the history of the Islamic religion, forced to write out and confess the Shahada, the Islamic profession of faith, and forced to learn Islamic teachings from the Quran.

Students may opt out of saying the Pledge of Allegiance; however, at least at this school in Maryland, they may not opt out of assignments and verbal professions on Islam.

Recently, a Christian student was punished for refusing to write out and confess the Shahada and do other things that the school wanted her to do because it violated her Christian beliefs. If you want to know what the shahada is, it is this: “There is no god but Allah, and Muhammad is the messenger of Allah.”

How would forcing students to say, “Jesus is the way, the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Jesus” go over in the public schools?

Can anyone see any hypocrisy here?

Apparently, the history class spent one day on Christianity and two weeks on Islam. You have to wonder what would happen if someone tried to make kids recite the Nicene Creed. One, that would never happen, and two, if it did, anyone who didn’t want to do it would be excused from it in no time flat.

When it’s in reference to Islam, anything goes, but Christianity is hardly mentioned any more. Oh, and you’re also penalized if you don’t want to profess Islamic faith that is in direct contrast with your Christian faith.

“…liberty and justice for all.” Indeed.

**** WARNING **** If you like the pope, stop reading.

A while back, we wrote about Pope Francis’s impending visit to Philadelphia, which is at the very end of the World Meeting of Families, a Catholic thing that meets every three years in various places. He is meeting to discuss “the impact of love and life of families on our society.”

Every time we see another article about the anticipated arrival of the political figure in white, it always annoys us.

We’re wondering why the pope has to go to Philadelphia and inconvenience a lot of people. Seems to us he can just make whatever speeches he wants to make on the internet and not inconvenience a soul. Wouldn’t that be the considerate and loving thing to do?

We see pictures of this person with security guards and police all around him and we wonder about the pictures. What we see is someone who is obviously very powerful, yet he is supposed to be a Christian and Christians are supposed to be humble.

The pope is also going to use the lectern that Abraham Lincoln used for his Gettysburg Address. It’s being rented from a private collector, and Robert Ciaruffoli, the president of the World Meeting of Families said, “Its simple beauty and humble role in one of American history’s most important moments reflects, in many ways, Pope Francis’ own world view.”

We wonder how much it will cost to rent the lectern and wonder if speaking from a regular old lectern wouldn’t be simpler and humbler.

“…simple beauty and humble role” may be the pope’s world view for others but it doesn’t seem to be a view he has for himself. Stopping up traffic, closing bridges, and giving people headaches getting to work while having multiple guards and policemen protecting him is not what we’d call simple beauty or a humble role.

Thinking back, one of the pope’s meetings was about environmental issues, yet he’s flying to America.

Isn’t that supposed to be bad for the environment, pope?!?

is apparently not good for the gander.

A store in Kentucky specializes in printing t-shirts and its owner happens to be a Christian. In 2012, he got an order from homosexuals for a gay pride t-shirt. They were planning to use them for a gay pride event, but the owner of the store refused the order because it went against his faith. He is now being prosecuted for discrimination.

We just read an article that said another Christian man asked several gay bakeries to make him a pro-traditional wedding cake. All of the bakeries refused, some of them rather violently (not a surprise there). Needless to say, these bakeries are not being prosecuted for discrimination.

So why aren’t they being prosecuted? They participated in discrimination against a man who just wanted a pro-traditional wedding cake. But that is the gay bakeries’ right; they can refuse to promote an idea contrary to their belief, just like it’s the t-shirt company’s right to refuse to make gay pride shirts.

In America, people traditionally weren’t forced to promote things that violated their conscience. Therefore, a Christian t-shirt company owner shouldn’t be forced to make gay pride t-shirts for gays, just like gays shouldn’t be forced to promote Christian values.

What hypocrites, though. The gay bakeries are run by people who are so weak that they would force their will on others while others must bow to them. What is good for the goose is not good for the gander if it means prosecuting someone for discrimination.

We’ve noticed that whenever there is something that doesn’t make sense or whenever there are a lot of inconsistencies, that liars are at work. Liars don’t make sense, and in order to avoid admitting their lie, they have to lie again, and as a result they are very inconsistent.

Where there is truth, everything is in order. One can logically follow from one point to the next, because honest people don’t lie. As a result, everything makes sense and there is no inconsistency.

Where there are lies, the opposite is true.

We were thinking about what the person in the White House has been doing with closing national parks during his theater “shut down”. We were going to go over to the Liberty Bell and Independence Hall to take some photos of the mean and scary looking guards who are surely there. Then we thought – if they can guard the park to keep criminal Americans and others out, surely they can keep the park open and let those same Americans and others in. Either way, they are there and they are getting paid.

Then we remembered. Where there is lying, there are inconsistencies. Lying is one of the most despicable crimes a person can commit. We actually despise unashamed, blatant liars and hope to never succumb to the temptation to become one. Liars are losers.
