Synopsis: December 15, 1791, the day Virginia voted to ratify, was the day the Bill of Rights became part of the United States Constitution. These ten amendments were designed to limit the power of the federal government. Too many Americans, including judges, don’t remember the real reason for the Bill of Rights nor the original intent of them. And . . . no, “separation of church and state” is not there! Now you have an opportunity to commemorate the Bill of Rights on their birthday!
US Attorney General Jeff Sessions issued two very important memos addressing Title VII and religious freedom. Both of these had been misinterpreted over the last eight years which resulted in misrepresenting what the original intents of the authors of Title VII and the First Amendment were. These memos bring common sense back into these documents.
A former US Marshall who is now in Pennsylvania’s State Senate is fed up with the anti-American NFL protests surrounding the National Motto and says they cannot go “unrebuked.” Senator Mike Regan, Republican from York County, is circulating a co-sponsorship memo for a resolution condemning the anti-American protests on the gridiron the weekend of September 23rd and 24th.
The American Family Association of Pennsylvania (AFA of PA), a statewide traditional values group and an advocate for the First Amendment, has contacted Beaver Area School District superintendent Dr. Carrie Rowe and asked her take to up First Liberty Institute’s offer to sit down and discuss how the school district might provide for religious expression in the future. Graduation Day on June 2nd should have been a happy time for all graduating seniors, but when one’s speech has been censored by the administration that takes away from the significant milestone in a student’s life.
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 around the corner as assaults on the holiday are mounting. Can government entities put up a Christmas display that includes Baby Jesus? Can schools allow children to sing Christmas carols or students to hand out Christmas cards? You may be surprised by the answer!
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!!
