Many people are having a difficult time understanding how the Biden Administration, the mainstream news media and corporations assault on “misinformation” and “disinformation” relates to Christian persecution. There is a reason why the Founding Fathers placed freedom of speech, religion, the press, and peaceful assembly together as enumerated rights in the First Amendment. Without free speech there can be no peaceable assembly. The absence of free speech begets religious persecution. A free press is supposed to hold accountability to overreaching government. This new era of government, media and corporate collusion to censor free speech is now taking an extreme turn toward religious freedom.
Case in point is the extreme radical reaction to the leaked Supreme Court decision to end federally-legalized abortion and kick it back to the states to decide. Those who are pro-life are targeted by the pro-death crowd. Crisis Pregnancy Centers that offer alternatives to abortion and are often operated by Christians have been vandalized and protested. Churches across America, Catholic churches in particular, have been targeted with vandalism and protests because of their pro-life convictions. Joe Biden, a” Catholic, is largely silent on the attacks, but his Press Secretary Jen Psaki danced around the violence and vandalism: We don’t support that…We understand the passion. We understand the concern. But what the President’s position is is that that should be peaceful–the protests.” This is a far cry from violence will be met with force.
The President and leaders of the Democratic Party have encouraged protests, knowing full well that they will include, incite or intend vandalism and violence. They also know that the pro-life side of the abortion issue is majority Christian. And this is where free speech and religious persecution intersect. The pro-death crowd is using their aggressive form of weaponized free speech to persecute Christians who do not believe as they do. And because the hypocritical Democratic Party leadership, many of whom are Catholic, disagree with both the Catholic Church’s pro-life stance and individuals who are pro-life, they turn a blind eye toward protecting the religious and free speech rights of pro-life Christians, encouraging “protests” yet “understanding the passion.” Talk about a dog whistle.
And the angry dogs are descending on the homes of Supreme Court justices. Breitbart reported that about 100 abortion activists marched on the homes of Justice Brett Kavanaugh and Chief Justice John Roberts. Activists said none of the justices homes were out of bounds. Lacie Wooten-Holway told The Washington Post, referring to Kavanaugh, “We’re about to get doomsday, so I’m not going to be civil to that man at all.” MSNBC, a leftist media outlet, held a panel discussing the leaked SCOTUS decision. The outcome was summed up on a Twitter post: “MSNBC panel’s Amy Hagstrom Miller: “Christian extremism” drives the “terrorist” pro-life movement.”
On one hand, free speech is being weaponized against Christians at the encouragement of government, while on the other hand, free speech is being censored or drowned out from the pro-life movement. This is the short step toward violent persecution when free speech is allowed to be one sided. Whether it is abortion or COVID or other issues, your free speech is being censored by collusion of government, media and corporations. It always leads to religious persecution—think WWII Germany, current China, Soviet Russia. The First Amendment stands in the breech, and even that is weaponized when it is one sided. Learn Ephesians 6. Memorize verse 19: “And for me, that utterance may be given unto me, that I may open my mouth boldly, to make known the mystery of the gospel.” If you do not, there may come a time when you can’t.
