What would you say if I told you that five people were cited and two of them arrested for worshipping at an outdoor church service in Moscow? What would you say if I told you I'm not talking about Moscow, the capital of Russia, but Moscow, a city in Idaho? That's right, this happened, not under atheistic communism, but right here in the good ole USA! What does it say about current affairs in America when our government is reluctant to arrest either anarchists, who assault law enforcement and accost the law-abiding, or arsonists, who loot and burn down businesses, but more than ready to arrest worshippers for not wearing masks in an outdoor church service?
Our Justice Department issued a letter yesterday to the city of San Fransisco, calling upon it to end its "draconian" coronavirus rules for houses of worship. According to the letter, San Francisco’s draconian policy is an unconstitutional impediment upon people's religious freedom. "There is," as the Justice Department's letter emphatically states, "no pandemic exception for the Constitution." While this is inarguable, it is nonetheless being illegally imposed throughout this country with impunity, not to mention with little protest from a pliable public. Being too panicked over our present pandemic, thanks to panic promoting politicians, as well as to a panic promoting press, the American people, out of fear for their lives, are suddenly surrendering their constitutional freedoms.
It is most unfortunate that the famous quote of Patrick Henry has been only partially recited in its propagation. Henry's full quote, as you can see for yourself, speaks most poignantly to our present-day peril: "Is life so dear or peace so sweet as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take, but as for me, give me liberty, or give me death!" As another American has astutely observed, our nation will remain the land of the free only so long as it continues to be the home of the brave! The more we become a land of cowards the more our constitutional liberties will be suspended by the coercive legislation of our country's out of control leaders.
