Proof religious freedom is NOT dead!

I have been following the writing of Joseph Farah for years and WND since WorldNetDaily days. I saw Mr. Farah’s column The war on freedom of religion,” July 12, 2022, and I wanted you to know that there is hope for freedom of religion in this country.

On May 13, 2022, the Louisiana Supreme Court ruled in favor of Pastor Tony Spell of Life Tabernacle Church in Central, Louisiana. Pastor Spell had been cited, arrested, jailed, put on house arrest and surveilled 24-7 because of his refusal to obey Gov. John Bel Edwards’ COVID orders. Edwards’ orders had made numerous exceptions for office buildings, shopping malls, large “box stores” including Wal-Mart, Target, Home Depot and the like – but wanted to limit church attendance to 50, then 10 people. Pastor Spell refused to quit opening his church to any who wanted voluntarily to come to worship.

After 26 months of litigation in the lower courts, the Louisiana Supreme Court quashed all charges against the pastor in a strongly worded decision vindicating our constitutionally protected, God-given rights. The court ruled, “Pandemic or not, this court cannot look the other way when the state infringes upon a citizen’s fundamental right to exercise his religion. ‘All government originates with the people, is founded on their will alone and is instituted to protect the rights of the individual and for the good of the whole. …’ In granting power to the government, our citizens not only reserved the right to freely exercise religion, they instructed this right ‘be preserved inviolate by the state.’ La. Const. art. I, sec. 1. As judges, we have no more solemn duty than to protect the fundamental rights reserved by the people from government overreach.”

All criminal charges against Pastor Spell were quashed by the Louisiana Supreme Court, and he is still fighting against the governor in a civil lawsuit.

What sweeter words could be written by a court in this day and age? Government limited by the fundamental law from infringing the rights of the people. I felt you may be buoyed by this decision.

With kindest regards for you in the struggle,

News flash: Criminals don’t obey gun laws

New Jersey already has gun laws like those proposed in Oregon. Criminals don’t obey laws; they don’t apply for permits, don’t pay fees, don’t register guns. They only get fingerprinted if and when caught. They illegally get guns and use them in violent crimes.

The best gun control law is the Sixth Commandment, “Thou Shalt Not Murder.” In a secular society, that law is ignored while restrictions are placed on honest citizens.

A military family – but no more

As a U.S. Army veteran (’68-’71), let me add the current debate over indoctrination by the LGBT faction. My son left the Army after 11 years due to this, as he said it voided his contract – homosexuals were not embraced openly when he enlisted.

I am now of the unfortunate determination of not wanting ANY of my 14 grandsons to serve in any branch due to LGBT and COVID experimental shots (with the terrible consequences). Call me unpatriotic if you will, but my grandsons are NOT social/medical experiments.

Follow the money

Joe Biden provided billions of dollars to the Taliban. In return the Taliban revealed the exact location and details of the al-Qaida leader Ayman al-Zawahiri to Biden. A strike was arranged to take out Zawahiri.

The mission was successful, and Biden starts crowing about his achievement trying to shore up his sagging popularity without giving any credit to the Taliban for helping him.

One wonders if Biden can figure out where the strike took place in Afghanistan or who Zawahiri was.

A family affair

Please expect the Biden Crime Family to be held to account at the same time the Clinton Crime Family, Obama Crime Family, Pelosi Crime Family, Pritzger Crime Family, Schiff Crime Family, Rockefeller Crime Family, Gates Crime Family and, Rothschild Crime Family are held accountable.
