So, at work yesterday, one of the girls said, let me tell you what my sister said happened at her school where she teaches. And she went on to say that the Book Mobile was at the school. And ONE parent objected because among all the other books, there were some that spoke of God or Christianity. So the ignorant school district forced them to remove those books!!!
Are you hopping mad yet?! If you aren't you should be and shame on you for not being so. All over America one or two bellyachers and hollarers are scaring school districts and cities into giving up rights that are STILL protected by the Constitution and supported in The Courts by throwing a tantrum and stomping their feet and threatening to sue.
If it doesn't scare you and sicken you, then I have only one question for you? Are you just plain stupid?
Today it's Christian books, symbols, speech, etc. But what about tomorrow? What group may decide to use the same tactics to threaten certain science publications that don't agree with their views. Or history publications because it portrays their homeland at a time when it was behaving badly? Or medical publications because they don't agree with the treatments put forth? Fahrenheit 451 was a work of fiction. But are you gonna sit back and let it become a reality?!
Say you could care less about books, symbols and free speech? Then why don't you care that a small minority is changing the face of America? This is supposed to be a Democracy! Do you understand the meaning of the word? Do you really want to end up living in a land where 90% of the people are living a way of life that only pleases the 10%?
I'll tell you what I told my co-worker. Send you sister this link:
Liberty Institute. There she can find resources under issues explaining what her rights still are under the law as it stands. Students can find the truth about their rights. And the military and cities can find information and help as well! You can get help if you or an organization you are involved with are attacked in this manner. And you can get involved and give help in many forms, from volunteering, signing petitions to giving financial donations.
If you sit back and do nothing, don't even open your mouth to complain when the freedoms we have are gone. In Texas when a few are trying to ride heard on the majority we say the tail is wagging the dog. I say, chop the tail off, so the dog may live in peace!
