Freedoms – Final Thoughts
One hour and nothing new, Freedom of Speech, couldn’t get any boundaries. We don’t need a boundary if people will really use common sense, but even that has different meanings to different people. I understand that if we limit any part of the freedom we limit ALL freedoms. HOW do we get the ones pushing the limits with the vulgarity in art and television, “clothing malfunctions”, and the like to understand that there is a large group of us who don’t want a PG-13 film to have sex scenes that are deemed OK because they have a cover over them while they are in bed “acting”?
Wasn’t the original intent for us to be able speak out against the government without fear of losing our heads?
Freedom of Religion, we could have had a 2 hour show on that alone. I found in my research that those who had no knowledge of either religion or REAL information on our forefathers seemed to be the experts!
As I said on the show, I don’t want to have some government prayer in school or a Bible in every desk, BUT, I don’t want us rewriting history. The majority of the founders held seminary degrees. They fasted and prayed as part of the official duties and one of the first official books printed and distributed by the government was THE BIBLE! LET ME BE CLEAR! I am not pushing for a “Christian Nation” here. Let’s just get the facts straight. Allow me my freedoms and I will allow you yours.
We should ALL be allowed to practice our beliefs in freedom. The government should not be afraid of participating in events during the holidays… Merry Christmas, Happy Chanukah, Happy Nothing day, a Christmas tree in front of City Hall, a Menorah, a whatever! Let’s have a celebration of what made this country great, the mix of beliefs with a basis in Judeo/Christian principles, a mix of ethnicities, nationalities and classes WITH NONE OF THE UGLIES!
God Bless America!
