Today is the National Day of Prayer and President Trump took advantage of the day to sign an executive order protecting religious liberty. The executive order focused on the Johnston Amendment in an effort to weaken its strangle hold on churches and other religious organizations.
Tonight those city council members who were elected to uphold the Constitution chose instead to ignore it and deny its very existence. City Council has voted to remove the war memorial because atheists found part of it offensive — the Tyrants Bench with a paraphrase of William Penn’s quote “Men who aren’t governed by God will be governed by tyrants.” The American Family Association of Pennsylvania (AFA of PA), an advocate for the First Amendment and the Founding Fathers understanding of it, is appalled that not one city council member had the courage to stand up against the bullies from the American Atheists, but instead gave in to their unconstitutional demands.
Today is the 225th anniversary of the passage of the Bill of Rights. Too many Americans don’t even know what the first ten amendments to the Constitution say, let alone the reason why these were so important to the founding of this nation.
The end of November, the City of Franklin received an email from a family in a neighboring town complaining about the Nativity display that had been present in the city’s Bandstand Park for as long as anyone could remember. To press the issue of a possible violation of the separation of church and state, the author of the email, who simply signed it “RM, SJ and family,” cc’d the Freedom From Religion Foundation, the Wisconsin based atheist group. The American Family Association of Pennsylvania (AFA of PA) is headquartered in Franklin and immediately began offering information to the mayor and city manager.

Christmas must be getting close as atheists are out to take away the Reason for the Season – Jesus Christ. Another group of atheists is upset about a quote on a bench. By the way, the quote is very similar to one of William Penn’s!!
PA Senate leadership is the only thing standing in the way of a vote in the full Senate that would give public schools the green light to post the National Motto In God We Trust in their buildings.
Franklin Graham’s Decision American Tour is coming to Harrisburg from noon till 1:00 today at Soldiers & Sailors Grove (501 N. 3rd Street) in Harrisburg to hold a prayer rally for our nation.
Before Monday night’s football game all members of the Pittsburgh Steelers and Washington Redskins not only stood for the National Anthem, but stepped forward to assist the military in holding the giant US Flag.
Homosexual activists are targeting Christian colleges and universities which have taken advantage of the component of Title IX that allows them to seek a waiver if adhering to government policies goes against their religious teachings. These activists are seeking to intimidate these schools by posting their names on a “Shame List.” Lancaster Bible College is on that list!
