Christians: Empty the Churches and Fill the Streets

David Green, founder and CEO of Hobby Lobby, has, through great hesitation, decided to sue the federal government to ensure his rights to pursue his religious rights as guaranteed in the First Amendment to the United States Constitution.

This is just another in a long line of needless lawsuits arising out of an unjust and unconstitutional law, affectionately called Obamacare by Barack Obama, or otherwise given the ironic title of Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, which accomplishes neither patient protection, nor affordable care.

The Constitutional questions are not questions at all. There is no more clear wording in the Bill of Rights than: "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof." There simply is no more clear admonition than "Congress shall make no law..." What part of "no" is vague? What part of "congress" is vague? What part of "law" is vague? What part of "prohibiting the free exercise thereof" is vague?

Very clearly, if Congress makes a law, drafts a law or passes a law that prohibits the free exercise of religion, i.e. requires that Christians, in order to obey such law, must violate their religious beliefs against abortion by funding that activity, providing that activity through any means, which violates their admonition from God in the Ten Commandments not to kill, is not unconstitutional, then words mean nothing.

Unfortunately, we have seen all too often that when it comes to federal government power, the federal Supreme Court, has found in favor of the government and against the citizen. It is hostile to religion. It is hostile to liberty.

If it is found that Hobby Lobby is forced to violate their freedom of religion, it is the intent of David Green to close its doors. Realistically, they will probably sell their assets to some other large retailer and the stores will stay open under another name. Christian values, however, will be largely diminished.

There are a long list of reasons Obamacare should have been ruled unconstitutional, not just for the violation of religious freedoms inherent in its language, but the violations of individual liberty wherein a mandate requiring the people to purchase anything, including medical coverage, is a violation of the Constitution.

Finding Obamacare constitutional is an example of how the Supreme Court is acting illegally by failing to uphold the Constitution. It is why every judgment made by this Supreme Court is an affront to justice. Allowing any nine people in the nation to encumber the entire population with unwanted, unwarranted violations of liberty is political malpractice. It changes the very fundamentals of a republican form of government and arrives at a system much more akin to an oligarchy.

Christians must fight back against these abuses of government. They are now involved in the fight and while many Christians find it unpalatable to engage in politics, politics have engaged them. To honor God is not to forfeit His will to bureaucrats because of sloth and a refusal to take up Christ's defense in the public square. It is the duty of Christians to empty the churches and fill the streets.

  1. "and while many Christians find it unpalatable to engage in politics, politics have engaged them."

    No truer words have ever been spoken. The time for Christians to hem and haw and try to avoid confrontation are over.

  2. The idea of Christian America still existing is I fear, a wishful dream. That ideal started dying after WW2 and became replaced by Communism. When people can
    place videos like this of themselves on the internet and feel good about it and others see nothing wrong, our beloved Republic is dead.
    Warning: viewing this video will leave the images permanently seared in your brain and can never be removed.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=krcqHRkubyw&feature=player_detailpage

  3. Thank you for posting this. Every day, Christians are waking and understanding that they cannot call themselves Christian if they do not take a stand. It is past time to make this stand and the lateness of Christians to the fight will cost us dearly. Inaction will cost more. Christ didn't give his life so we could live the easy life, he gave us the opportunity to defend our faith against difficult foes. Satan is alive and well after all. Satan cannot stand against God's people. II Chronicles 7:14 pretty much sums up my feelings. I will suggest this blog to a couple of friends who will appreciate what you have to say. God Bless. Stay Ready.

  4. What part of "no" is vague? The part that seems vague in "shall not be infringed"

  6. The authority of the SCOTUS is the first lie of attrition by the domestics.. the SCOTUS has no constitutional authority to interpret the constitutionality of anything but law created by the congress UNDER the constitution.. any ruling they make regarding anything other than those laws is a violation and usurpation of the restrictions placed on them by the constitution itself. It has no lawful authority or legal standing even in its own court. Article 3 section 2.. "arising under this constitution"..

  8. Sorry, but this is heresy plain and simple: "It is the duty of Christians to empty the churches and fill the streets."

    1. Explain yourself. It is heresy to explain that Christians have to do more than sit in the pew to defend the liberty needed to pursue Christian values? Don't just do a "drive by", explain yourself.
