Are You A Christian? ARE YOU?

It's Freedom of Religion, Mr Obama and Mrs Clinton. The First Amendment of the Constitution of The United States of America is very clear on this point. It says, "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof..."

The word used is "Religion". Before you accuse me of splitting hairs (Ronco makes a wonderfully sharp hair splitter), words matter. There is an ocean of difference between "religion" and "worship". An oily, stinky, gulfy-like ocean, but an ocean, nevertheless.

Freedom of religion is used to refer to the tolerance of different theological systems of belief, while freedom of worship is defined as freedom of individual action. Last November at the memorial service for the Fort Hood shooting victims, Obama used the term “freedom of worship” instead of "freedom of religion". He did it again just days later in speeches in Japan and China. In December Hillary Clinton also used "freedom of worship" three times in a speech at Georgetown University. Not once did she say “freedom of religion”. In January while addressing senators, Clinton used the phrase “freedom of worship” four times.

This is not accidental. This is a deliberate distortion of the language of our Constitution by the President of the United States of America and a former first lady and sitting Senator who well know the correct verbiage.

Freedom of worship might allow church services, but leaves out protection for Christian schools, publications, and Christian ministries. Freedom of religion means that ministries designed to help the homeless or felons change their lives, or to help those less fortunate or from blighted areas train for jobs, can teach what the Bible teaches. Under freedom of worship, these ministries could become illegal, as they are in many parts of the world.

Do not believe for a second that these two professional politicians have accidentally juxtaposed words. You must ask WHY are they intentionally changing the wording of our Constitution from Freedom of Religion to Freedom of Worship. They are deliberately presenting to the world a change of a fundamental right of U.S. citizens. We enjoy the fundamental right to Freedom of Religion.

This President is no longer even being subtle about his agenda to change the United States to a Socialist state with substantially less individual freedom. This treasonous behavior must be stopped. Most Americans claim to be Christians. November 2nd we Must take back the House of Representatives and the Senate. If you vote for a liberal, a democrat, you will be complicit in the destruction of this nation and the disintegration of our fundamental right to Freedom of Religion. As a Christian man that believes that Jesus died for my sins (aplenty), I will not sacrifice my right to Religion. I will not deny my God. I will die rather than have a power-hungry government tell me I cannot worship and do all the other things God calls me to do.

Are you a Christian?

Are you a Christian?

Are you really a Christian?
