San Francisco has become the latest epicenter for religious persecution by the liberal left. What is the crime you ask? Brace yourself my friends. Put the cookie on the table and swallow the mouthful of milk because when you hear what the Catholic church has done now, you are going to spit Oreos all over you computer screen.
Are you ready?
The Catholic church is under fire for “forcing catholic doctrine” in their schools.
SHOCKING, I know. How dare they stand on religious convictions.
According to a report posted by Todd Starne’s on his Facebook today, the San Francisco Board of Supervisors passes resolution calling on Archdiocese to renounce morality clause for Catholic school workers. San Francisco says the Catholic Church’s morals conflict with the city’s morals.
Yes you read that right… the city’s morals.
As San Francisco’s archbishop tries to make its Catholic schools more Catholic, city and state officials are poised to push back, saying any effort to discriminate against employees will be met with legal action. (read more here)
Religious church goers have told me for years, “Oh Monica, they will never come change our doctrine. My pastor will be OK. Oh that school choice thing… we have full control over our curriculum. We can’t forget the infamous “Jesus is coming back” excuse. Christian colleges have refused to take a stand because they think somehow they are exempt, and will always have control over their hiring practices and lifestyle statements.
The left pushes and we fall deeper into our slumber.
It’s time to wake up. It’s time to take our place on the battle field and say WE HAVE HAD ENOUGH. Our founders CAME to America to have Religious Freedom, and we are giving it away because we think it’s too hard” and “too depressing” to take a stand. I call it for what it is. Laziness and apathy. Let’s get it together.
You have an opportunity NOW
Right here in Indiana, we have our own religious freedom battle brewing and we have a choice. We can decide to come out of the church building and speak for Religious Freedom, or we can stick our heads back in the sand for another lullaby. We can choose to speak out, or lose our religious freedom.
What will it be church?
The left is not bashful. In fact, the group who killed the marriage amendment last year, “Indiana Freedom for Some,” (they like to think of themselves as Freedom Indiana) came out ironically against Religious Freedom and have called for a rally on Monday to stand against Religious Freedom.
So church, let me be blunt. You have a choice. Stand now, or lose your freedom for good. We will meet at the statehouse on Monday at 9 am wearing green. Will you bring your church buses, your voice, and come support our lawmakers who will be voting for Religious freedom? Will you choose to speak? Or will you keep the church doors closed and hope all the bad news goes away?
There is a war on Christianity…. and it will be at your doorstep before you know it.
Choose to stand now.
They came first for the Communists, and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a Communist.
Then they came for the Jews, and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a Jew.
Then they came for the trade unionists, and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a trade unionist.
Then they came for the Catholics, and I didn’t speak up because I was Protestant.
Then they came for me, and by that time no one was left to speak up.”
