Beware; The Enemy Within!

September, 2013, Middlesex County Board of Supervisor, Carlton Revere announced at the board meeting that prayer was being suspended due to fears from a recent litigation case that occurred in Pittsylvania, VA, where that county's board of supervisors were sued for starting their board meetings with an opening prayer.  A direct assault on the first amendment of the Bill of Rights attached to the United States Constitution that is the right of every American regardless of government office.  We reported on the original Pittsylvania case on this site.

Article One of the Bill of Rights reads as follows;

"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."

Chairman Carlton Revere was following the advice of the Middlesex county attorney, Mike Soberick.  Mr Soberick is supposed to be in the position of protecting the county and it's citizens from an entire host of issues to include unfair attacks against the freedoms of the county's own citizens.  Instead Mike Soberick caves to the will of some sickofant fringe group that goes by the name, "Freedom From Religion Foundation", who supposedly sent the county an email from the foundation's staff attorney.

  Everyone can look and see that even the United States Congress opens it's meetings with prayer.  How is it that counties are being attacked for what Congress practices in front of the media everyday?  Stopping the sickofant fringe groups from attacking the rights of the people is real simple.  Force them to sue every county in every state to try and stop our freedoms.  This would quickly force these fringe groups into bankruptcy.  

  As noted above in the first amendment to the Constitution, freedom of religion, speech and the press is all under one umbrella for a reason.  They are all intertwined and the same.  You take away one, you take away all of them.  It's a direct attack on the American People as a whole by a minority that wants to dominate your very thoughts and dictate all your actions.  It's anarchistic.

Thomas Jefferson:  "Of liberty then I would say that, in the whole plenitude of it's extent, it is unobstructed action according to our will, but rightful liberty is unobstructed action according to our will within limits drawn around us by the equal rights of others.  I do not add "within the limits of law," because law is often but the tyrant's will and always so when it violates the rights of an individual."

  In other words, the folks at the "Freedom From Religion Foundation", are very clearly obstructing the rights of their fellow citizens as defined by the First Amendment of the US Constitution.

  Further;  It is a time tested and well proven fact that prayer before meetings is a natural deterrent to violence during the meeting and a positive influence to the proper flow of said meetings.  

  That would mean the folks over at the Freedom From Religion Foundation have opened up the county of Middlesex to potential violence and anarchy and that the county attorney, Mike Soberick, has facilitated this action of his own will and against the citizens of the county at which we would recommend that the citizens of Middlesex county seek the fair removal, for just cause,  of any further services and or dis services of this spineless weezle of a county attorney.

"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports.  In vain would that man claim the tribute of patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness-these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens.  The mere politician, equally with the pious man, ought to respect and cherish them.  A volume could not trace all their connections with private and public felicity.  Let it simply be asked, Where is security for property, for reputation, for life, if the sense of religious obligation desert the oaths which are the instruments of investigation in courts of justice?  And let us with caution indulge the supposition that morality can be maintained without religion.  Whatever may be conceded to the influence of refined education on minds of peculiar structure, reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principle." 
George Washington

   Again we say, Beware The Enemy Within!

Gloucester, VA Chick-Fil-A Continues In The News

Chick-fil-A Kiss-Ins Divide LGBT Movement

Carly McGehee, 24, had been trying for months to plan a "kiss-in" to protest fried-chicken chain Chick-fil-A's long history of donating money to groups that oppose same-sex marriage and promote conversion therapy, a controversial practice intended to "cure" gay people.
But there was no real catalyst for the event until now.
This summer, the company's chief executive Dan Cathy gave a pair of interviews saying he was “guilty as charged” of supporting “the biblical definition of the family unit" and that gay marriage invites "God's judgment on our nation."
The company now sits at the center of a furious debate over same-sex marriage, gay rights and free speech while some politicians rally around it and others urge the company to stay out of their cities. McGehee, of Dallas, thought the time was right.
On Friday night, she estimates about 15,000 same-sex supporters will show up at Chick-fil-A restaurants nationwide to snap photos, and hug, kiss or hold hands with someone of the same-sex. One of her main goals for the event is to give hope to the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender youth living in the South, who hear messages condemning gay marriage more often than words of support, McGehee said.
"Tonight is for those kids that are growing up in, say, a small town in Texas, like I did, so that they can see that they're not different, that they're loved and accepted and they shouldn't be ashamed of who they are," McGehee said. She also hopes to show the world that the American people "aren't going stand for discrimination and intolerance."

As I have said before, let those in the gay community convert to the Wicca religion or the Satanist religion.  Those are the two religions that recognize same sex marriages.  We do not need to create extra laws for minorities that are not already in existence.  I have a zero sum issue for gay rights.  Gay marriage is not a gay right according to the state.  Want to argue that on the proper end?  1st Amendment, to the bill of rights, Congress shall make no law respecting establishment of religion nor  prohibiting the free exercise thereof.  Gay marriage is not a Christian value, therefore the need to recognize it as such does not exist.
 It is a recognized value under Wicca and Satanism.  Paganism may also recognize it as well.  Therein lies the answers to this dilemma.  The state is under no obligation whatsoever to recognize the issues and to do so is to go against the Constitution of the Untied States and also the Bill of Rights of the US.  If gay people wish to get married, then let them follow the paths where it is accepted.  No issues there.  
  Gay marriage is a privilege, not a right.  Now here is what is really going on with the protests.  It's an attempt to silence the freedom of speech made by the owner of the Chick-Fil-A franchise as well as a very blatant attack on Christianity itself.  Just because you do not like his view does not give you the right to attack him for it.  Any gay person who protests the owners right to the freedom of speech attacks themselves for the right to be gay openly.  Think about it.
