Recent headlines continue to tell the story of how freedom of speech in America is under attack by socialists in the Democratic Party. In California, for example, Democratic Governor Gavin Newsom signed a bill into law to discipline doctors with possible suspension of their licenses for spreading “misinformation” or “disinformation” about COVID 19. The law targets doctors who speak out against harmful treatments of COVID mandated by the federal government and backed by big pharmaceutical companies and corporate-controlled medical associations. Alternative treatments that were proven effective against COVID were maligned by government-industry-media alliances that promoted COVID vaccines.
Unfortunately for the masses, the mRNA vaccines for COVID proved to be far less effective than advertised and fraught with long-term side effects, including heart issues and death. Despite these findings in scientific peer-reviewed studies, the government, media, and big corporate medical companies continue to promote a false narrative that the vaccines are both safe and effective. Even worse, they have censored dissenting opinions and studies that prove the effectiveness of less invasive alternative treatments and preventatives for COVID. This censorship is counter to the advancement of true science and it crosses the line of Constitutional guarantees of free speech as demonstrated by California’s unfathomable censorship.
The Constitution says that “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.” This addresses Congress and the government. However, corporations are not bound by the same guarantee. What we are seeing in this country is not only the government putting pressure on people to comply with the government propaganda, but also an unholy alliance between government and corporations to censor free speech. Social media giants acted in league with the FBI and Centers for Disease Control, for example, to censor dissent on the handling of COVID.
The Department of Justice also pressured parents attending school board meetings with threats of being characterized and investigated as domestic terrorists for protesting against sexualization of their children by public schools. Now a group of senators led by Ted Cruz (R-TX) once again warned Attorney General Merrick Garland to not police speech against transgender surgeries for children. Why is all this important to Christians? It is Christians who oppose the immoral abominations promoted by Democratic Party agendas. Your free speech rights affect your freedom of religion. These people are and will target religious freedom as they are emboldened with targeting free speech. As the Apostle Paul prays in Ephesians 6:20 “that I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak.” We all need to exercise our free speech that we not lose it.
