Free Speech Chilled

Everyone has heard about the Houston Mayor Parker who subpoenaed pastors sermons and emails for a lawsuit in which they have no part. It certainly crosses a red line of the First Amendment. So a friend on Facebook (thanks, Jane) asks if the policy will be expanded. Should Imams be forced to submit their sermons in the mosque? How about university professors? Maybe their lectures should be reviewed as well.

Anne Graham Lotz wrote a great note to the Houston Mayor. Here is a portion:

“So…I have written a note to Mayor Annise Parker, City Hall, 901 Bagby Street, Houston, Texas 77002, telling her that God loves her, that I am praying for her, and urging her to read the Bible I included with my note.  Although I am not a pastor, I also sent her a copy of the “speech” I delivered at the Official Observance of the National Day of Prayer in Washington, DC. , calling on people to repent of their sin, cry out to the Lord…for the Day of the Lord is near; it will come like destruction from the Almighty.  Joel 1:14-15

I agree with Eric Metaxas. The red line has been crossed. Persecution of God’s people has begun. In response to the question the Lord voices in Psalm 94:16, I want to answer clearly, I will!       Will you? ” Charisma News

Who will rise up for me against the evildoers? Who will stand up for me against the workers of iniquity? Psalm 94:16

My heading today uses the word “chilled”, perhaps it should say “killed”. We are at crossroads in our nations history. Christians must wake up, stand up and speak up. There is no time to lose. Start by voting in this critical mid-term election. Pray and compare candidates and indeed parties on how they stack up to Biblical values. This is no game, folks. If you do not vote, you can’t complain about the direction our country is headed. VOTE!
