To anyone paying attention, it comes as no surprise when Progressives try to eliminate any reference to the Christian faith in America in the name of “being tolerant” of others. A recent incident in Davenport, Iowa is just the latest example of their extremist behavior.
Just days before the most holy day on the Christian calendar, the Davenport Civil Rights Commission recommended that Good Friday be changed to something less religious. Following that, the City Administrator illegally sent a memo to employees notifying them that Good Friday would now be called “Spring Holiday.”
The move was illegal because policy changes require a vote by the city council. But as we learned from the hijacking of healthcare by the Federal government, silly little things like the law or the Constitution should never interfere with a Progressive agenda.
When asked to explain there actions, the Civil Rights Commission said it recommended changing the name to better reflect the city’s diversity and maintain a separation of church and state when it came to official municipal holidays.
“We merely made a recommendation that the name be changed to something other than Good Friday,” said Tim Hart, the commission’s chairman. “Our Constitution calls for separation of church and state. Davenport touts itself as a diverse city and given all the different types of religious and ethnic backgrounds we represent, we suggested the change.”
Fortunately for the citizens of Davenport, the city council took immediate steps to correct this overstepping of authority. But the fact that it happened at all should give every citizen, Christian and non-Christian alike, reason for serious concern about the direction of this great nation for the following reasons:
- A government agency given the responsibility of protecting the civil rights of ALL citizens decided that the only way to protect the civil rights of one group was by violating the civil rights of another.
- A government employee is so ignorant of the law that he willingly violates it, or he knows the law but treats his position as an entitlement where he can do what he wants because “he knows best.”
- “Diversity” is being used to replace the Constitutional rights of ALL Americans?
- “Separation of Church and State” appears nowhere in the Constitution and has been used to bludgeon the Christian heritage of America.
I know it’s probably just my fanatical right-wing extremist point-of-view, but doesn’t it seem that every time a Progressive talks about tolerance, they are usually trying to eliminate those they don’t agree with, which is the ultimate display of intolerance?
In my never-ending mission to tick off the progressive, liberal left-wing nutjobs, let me wish my readers the most blessed Good Friday. Today we recognize the ultimate sacrifice of God’s Son to pay the penalty for our sins.
Because He died, we can live.
Oh, by the way. . . as the end of that video reminds us. . . Sunday’s coming!
