Religious Freedom

religionThe First Amendment grants the freedom of religious belief and practice. We believe that religious freedom is broader than just the right to attend a house of worship. It also protects individuals and organizations from having to sacrifice their personal value system to government or cultural dictum. Religious liberty enables us practice our beliefs legally, peacefully and publicly without retaliation.

UK Bureaucrats Abandon Term “Christmas” Over Fears It May Offend Minorities

UK Bureaucrats Abandon Term “Christmas” Over Fears It May Offend Minorities Authored by Paul Joseph Watson via Summit News, Bureaucrats in the UK were forced to abandon using the word “Christmas” as part of a campaign over fears it would offend minorities. Yes, really. Civil servants wanted to use the word as part of a COVID-19 test drive aimed at students that was originally called “Don’t take COVID home for Christmas.” However, the phrasing was vetoed after bosses worried it would upset non-Christians. “We have been advised by Cabinet Office that we should not use the word Christmas – as the Government campaign needs to be inclusive and some religions don’t celebrate Christmas,” an email seen by The Mail on Sunday read. “The other option was ‘festive season’ which keeps the emotional motivation.” “We have gone with ‘Don’t take COVID-19 home for the holidays,” they subsequently decided, despite another official pointing out that calling Christmas “holidays” was an “Americanism.” Conservative MP Saqib Bhatti rubbished the idea that the government should be pandering to people who are so easily offended. “As a Muslim, I find it ridiculous we can’t enjoy this special time of year. I look forward to showing my new son his first Christmas tree. The idea you can’t mention Christmas is completely ridiculous,” Bhatti said. “I’m proud of that and proud to celebrate Christmas. The Blob needs to stop waging war on Christmas and get on with delivering for the British people,” he added. Leftists have long declared claims about a politically correct “war on Christmas” to be a right-wing myth, although innumerable examples crop up every single year. As in previous years, Christmas TV commercials in the UK this year are top heavy on “diversity,” with virtually no focus on Christian themes. *  *  * Brand new merch now available! Get

Will 2022 Midterms Be The Next Great Crisis Backlash?

Will 2022 Midterms Be The Next Great Crisis Backlash? Authored by Andrew Busch via RealClearPolitics.com, At least twice in U.S. history, big political shakeups occurred in midterm elections that served as endpoints to periods of crisis, privation, and extraordinary government expansion and regimentation. The first was in November 1918. That election was held in the midst of the Spanish flu pandemic and just days before the armistice was signed ending World War I. The Allied breakthrough in France was well advanced and the handwriting was on the wall for the kaiser’s forces. Since entering the war in April 1917, Americans had endured extreme regimentation under the auspices of Woodrow Wilson’s “war socialism.” Rationing of consumer items was coupled with unprecedented government control over basic features of economic life, including a federal takeover of the nation’s railroads. These economic controls were combined with stringent political and social controls. With Wilson’s support, Congress passed the Sedition Act and the Espionage Act, clamping down (among other things) on publication or dissemination of arguments critical of the war effort or otherwise detrimental to national morale. Hundreds were imprisoned, including the Socialist Party’s perennial presidential candidate, Eugene Debs, who had urged young men not to comply with the draft. Spurred by war propaganda and encouraged by the administration, some exuberant patriots persecuted German Americans. Campaigning in 1918 was curtailed due to the Spanish flu, as was turnout on Election Day. Nevertheless, Republicans, including former President Theodore Roosevelt, campaigned vigorously as skeptics of Wilson’s Fourteen Points and critics of his war measures.  Republican candidates around the country demanded the end of wartime controls and regimentation. In 1920, Warren G. Harding would win the presidency on the promise of “A return to normalcy,” but it was Republicans in 1918 who first tested that theme, as they promised

Disney Under Fire For Blocking Simpsons Episode From Hong Kong Streaming Services

Disney Under Fire For Blocking Simpsons Episode From Hong Kong Streaming Services A month ago we reported that Hong Kong’s new pro-China film censorship law could see an eventual ban on Netflix and Amazon and other streaming services. The legislation was part of the continuing unfolding of the sweeping pro-China ‘national security law’ of June 2020, with the film censorship even working retroactively for any movies or programming “found to be contrary to national security interests”. Questions are now being asked about why Disney’s streaming service in Hong Kong, Disney Plus, has blocked a popular episode of the “Simpsons”. The episode in question features reference to the famous “tank man” photo from the June 1989 Tiananmen Square protests and massacre. The episode entitled “Goo Goo Gai Pan” also features jokes or references that could be deemed offensive to people of Chinese or Asian descent. The Simpsons The censorship law which was enacted late last month brings Hong Kong in closer to conformity to the kind of blatant censoring and wholesale blocking of content that’s long existed on the mainland. The law spells out that films are prohibited from any content aiming to “endorse, support, glorify, encourage and incite activities that might endanger national security.” According to The Wall Street Journal on Monday: Disney launched its streaming service, Disney+, earlier in November in Hong Kong featuring an array of programming owned by the entertainment giant, including 32 seasons of the animated comedy series. Yet one episode is missing from “The Simpsons” lineup: Titled “Goo Goo Gai Pan,” the episode from season 16 centers on a trip to China by the show’s namesake family. Along the way they encounter a plaque at Tiananmen Square in Beijing that reads: “On this site, in 1989, nothing happened.” The scene is an obvious sarcastic shot aimed directly at Chinese Communist propaganda and its well-known whitewashing of the
