IT BEGINS: US Marine Court-Martialed For Refusing To Remove Bible Verse From Computer

A United States Marine was convicted at a court-martial for refusing to remove a Bible verse on her computer – a verse of Scripture the military determined “could easily be seen as contrary to good order and discipline.”

The plight of Lance Corporal Monifa Sterling seems unbelievable, but it’s disgustingly all too real

“No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their righteousness is of me, saith the LORD.” Isaiah 54:17 (KJV)

They say that if you put a frog into boiling water, it will jump out. But if you put the same frog in cold water and gradually turn up the heat, it will never jump out until it’s too late, and get cooked. That’s exactly how the Obama administration is removing our freedoms, one at a time. And he has been astonishing successful. America in 2015 is a place Jesus Christ and the Bible are considered hate speech, and the LGBT Agenda is glorified. A place where everyone has rights except the bible believing Christian, run by an administration that allows Iran to have nuclear weapons but posting a Bible verse to your personal computer is illegal.

America, the wolf is in the White House and you are losing the battle for your liberty. It’s time to wake up, or admit defeat.

A United States Marine was convicted at a court-martial for refusing to remove a Bible verse on her computer – a verse of Scripture the military determined “could easily be seen as contrary to good order and discipline.”

The plight of Lance Corporal Monifa Sterling seems unbelievable – a member of the Armed Forces criminally prosecuted for displaying a slightly altered passage of Scripture from the Old Testament: “No weapon formed against me shall prosper.”

Sterling, who represented herself at trial, was convicted February 1, 2014 in a court-martial at Camp Lejune, North Carolina after she refused to obey orders from a staff sergeant to remove the Bible verses from her desk.

She was found guilty of failing to go to her appointed place of duty, disrespect toward a superior commissioned officer, and four specifications of disobeying the lawful order of a noncommissioned officer.

Both lower court and the appellate court ruled that the Religious Freedom Restoration Act did not apply to her case because displaying a Bible verse does not constitute religious exercise.

However, a religious liberty law firm and a high-powered, former U.S. solicitor general have taken up her case and have filed an appeal to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Armed Forces.

“If the government can order a Marine not to display a Bible verse, they could try and order her not to get a religious tattoo, or go to church on Sunday,” said Liberty Institute attorney Michael Berry. “Restricting a Marine’s free exercise of religion is blatantly unconstitutional.”

Sterling wised up and finally got legal counsel. Now representing her are the Liberty Institute along with former U.S. Solicitor General Paul Clement, also a law professor at Georgetown University. Clement most recently won a Supreme Court victory on behalf of Hobby Lobby against the Affordable Care Act.

Ronald Reagan Warned Us On The Gradual Creep Of Socialism:

Liberty Institute and Clement plan to argue that the appellate court should have applied the Religious Freedom Restoration Act in Sterling’s case – protecting her right to post Bible verses as a form of religious exercise.

According to the appellate court’s decision, they were not convinced “that displaying religious text at a shared government workstation would be protected even in a civilian federal workplace.” They also considered the fact that Sterling’s desk was shared by other Marines.

“The implication is clear – the junior Marine sharing the desk and the other Marines coming to the desk for assistance would be exposed to biblical quotations in the military workplace,” the court declared. “It is not hard to imagine the divisive impact to good order and discipline that may result when a service member is compelled to work at a government desk festooned with religious quotations.”

Festooned with religious quotations?

Attorney Berry points out that other Marines were allowed to decorate their desks. However, the lower courts refused to allow that evidence to be admitted. And at the time of the incident – Sterling was not sharing a desk.

“This was a conflict between her and her supervisor,” he told me. “Her supervisor clearly said she did not like the tone of the Bible verses.”

Berry said the supervisor cursed at Sterling and ordered her to immediately remove the verses. She refused the order. The following day, she discovered the verses had been removed and thrown in the trash.

“Adding insult to injury, the government charged her with the crime of failing to obey a direct order because she did not remove the Bible verse,” Berry said.

According to court documents, the military maintains the “verbiage” – “No weapon formed against me shall prosper” could “easily been seen as contrary to good order and discipline.”

“Maintaining discipline and morale in the military work center could very well require that the work center remain relatively free of divisive or contentious issues such as personal beliefs, religion, politics, etc.”

Liberty Institute attorney Hiram Sasser told me it was outrageous “that such a small strip of paper could so frighten a drill sergeant.”

“This is a very scary time when you are not allowed to have a very small printed Bible verse in your own personal workspace because it might offend other Marines,” Sasser told me. “Our Marines are trained to deal with some of the most hostile people on the planet. I don’t think they are afraid of tiny words on a tiny piece of paper.”

Reagan Warned Us About Obama, We Didn’t Listen:

The Bible verse incident happened in May 2013. A few months later she was accused of failing to wear an appropriate uniform because of a medical condition. Berry told me he believes the military was trumping up the charge sheet “to make it look that things were worse than they were.”

As it now stands – Sterling is unemployed and looking for work. It’s a process made harder because of the bad conduct discharge from the military.

Hopefully Liberty Institute will be able to restore this Christian Marine’s good name and expunge the charge. Anything less could jeopardize the standing of every person of faith serving in the Armed Forces. Should that happen – God help us all. source

It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.”Ronald Reagan, January 5, 1967

When Will Pope Francis And The Roman Catholic Church Apologize For The Slaughter Of Millions Of Christians During The Spanish Inquisition?

When will Pope Francis and the Roman Catholic Church apologize for the millions of Christians slaughtered during the 300 years of the Spanish Inquisition?

Pope Francis, ruler of the Roman Catholic Church as well as the king of Vatican City, has been on an ‘apology tour’ lately, attempting to placate critics of the Roman Harlot with pretend apologies for past atrocities. If he really meant business, Pope Francis would apologize for 300 years of slaughtering Christians for the crimes of owning a Bible and not worshipping the Roman eucharist. The truth about the Spanish Inquisition has been all but wiped from our collective memory, but thank God for men like historian John Foxe who faithfully recorded those atrocities and put them in a book called Foxe’s Book of Martyrs, a must-read for all true Christians. You will get so much more out of your study of books of like Revelation, Zechariah and Lamentations after reading Foxe’s Book of Martyrs and getting the context.

“And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration.” Revelation 17:6 (KJB)

For 300 years, the Roman Catholic Church, the true enemy of biblical Christianity, slaughtered millions of Christians by burning them at the stake, tied up while being forced to watch priests and bishops rape their wives and murder their children as they were fed to the flames. Hebrews describes it quite well when it prophetically says “And others had trial of cruel mockings and scourgings, yea, moreover of bonds and imprisonment: They were stoned, they were sawn asunder, were tempted, were slain with the sword: they wandered about in sheepskins and goatskins; being destitute, afflicted, tormented;” in Hebrews 11:37,38 (KJB). God’s answer to the Spanish Inquisition was the King James Bible, and everytime you open that Book and hold it in your hands, you are reading a Book literally bathed in blood that countless others gave their life to produce.

Pope Francis apologizes for forced assimilation of Indigenous children at residential schools

FROM CBC: The first day of Pope Francis’s “penitential pilgrimage” began with a heartfelt apology delivered at the site of one of Canada’s largest residential schools and ended eight hours later with blessings and songs at an intimate service in the only designated Indigenous church in Canada.

In a morning event in a First Nation community in central Alberta, Pope Francis apologized for members of the Catholic Church who co-operated with Canada’s “devastating” policy of Indigenous residential schools.

He said the forced assimilation of Indigenous peoples into Christian society destroyed their cultures, severed their families and marginalized generations in ways still being felt today.

“I humbly beg forgiveness for the evil committed by so many Christians against the Indigenous peoples,” Francis told thousands of Indigenous people, including many survivors, who converged on Maskwacis, Alta., about 100 kilometres south of Edmonton

To applause from those gathered, the Pope repeatedly begged forgiveness for actions of the past, supported by many members of the Church, which created the “disastrous error” and “deplorable evil” of residential schools. He said the memories of the children who never returned from residential schools have left him with a sense of “sorrow, indignation and shame.” READ MORE

They Will Use The COVID-19 Vaccine ‘Religious Exemption’ To Make It Easier To Identify The Body Of Christ When Time Comes For The Camps

Religious Exemption makes rounding up all the unvaccinated Christians to place them in concentration camps on Bill Gates farmland super easy.

NOW THE END BEGINS SHARE:

Religious exemptions, once used sparingly around the country to get exempted from various required vaccines, are becoming a much more widely used loophole against the mandated COVID-19 shot.

Christians all across America are right now scrambling for what’s known as a ‘religious exemption’ which will allow them to not have to receive the COVID-19 vaccine injection based on their religious and spiritual beliefs. Christians think this a good thing, but hold on now, this may be exactly what the government is hoping you will do.

“Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name’s sake.” Matthew 24:9 (KJB)

Across all of the liberal media news outlets right now, various commentators and pundits are calling for the unvaccinated to be removed from society, to be denied access to food, water, and emergency medical attention. At the highest levels of the American government, the order has already been given to start withholding life-saving medicine to people battling COVID. None of this is fear mongering or speculation, it is happening. Receiving a religious exemption tells the government that you identify with the Body Of Jesus Christ, you are putting yourself on a hit list of your own making. When it comes time for the unvaccinated to be removed, and Bill A416 is pending in New York State right now, rounding up all the unvaccinated Christians to place them in concentration camps located on Bill Gates 240,000 acres of farmland will be just as easy as shooting ducks in a barrel.

“If thou hast run with the footmen, and they have wearied thee, then how canst thou contend with horses? and if in the land of peace, wherein thou trustedst, they wearied thee, then how wilt thou do in the swelling of Jordan?” Jeremiah 12:5 (KJB)

On a related side note, I have been receiving some feedback today about this afternoon’s Prophecy News Podcast, with some saying that I have “gone too far”, and that I am scaring people and should pull back. I would like to reply with the following two thoughts. The smartest thing that Albert Einstein ever came up with was not his Theory of General Relativity, E=mc2, or anything else from that fertile brain. No, the smartest thing that Einstein ever did was to flee Nazi Germany in 1932 while he could still get out. He was smart enough to read the ‘handwriting on the wall’ and do something about it. How about you, Christian? You say you are saved and believe the Bible, if so, then that makes you smarter than Einstein ever was. Don’t get mad at me for telling you the truth of what’s happening, do something about it.

As COVID-19 vaccine mandates rise, religious exemptions grow and that’s a problem

FROM THE ASSOCIATED PRESS: An estimated 2,600 Los Angeles Police Department employees are citing religious objections to try to get out of the required COVID-19 vaccination. In Washington state, thousands of state workers are seeking similar exemptions. And in Arkansas, a hospital has been swamped with so many such requests from employees that it is apparently calling their bluff.

Religious objections, once used sparingly around the country to get exempted from various required vaccines, are becoming a much more widely used loophole against the COVID-19 shot. And it is only likely to grow following President Joe Biden’s sweeping new vaccine mandates covering more than 100 million Americans, including executive branch employees and workers at businesses with more than 100 people on the payroll.

The administration acknowledges that a small minority of Americans will use — and some may seek to exploit — religious exemptions. But it said it believes even marginal improvements in vaccination rates will save lives.

It is not clear how many federal employees have asked for a religious exemption, though union officials say there will be many requests. The Labor Department has said an accommodation can be denied if it causes an undue burden on the employer. In the states, mask and vaccine requirements vary, but most offer exemptions for certain medical conditions or religious or philosophical objections. The use of such exemptions, particularly by parents on behalf of their schoolchildren, has been growing over the past decade.

The allowance was enshrined in the federal Civil Rights Act of 1964, which says employers must make reasonable accommodations for employees who object to work requirements because of “sincerely held” religious beliefs.

A religious belief does not have to be recognized by an organized religion, and it can be new, unusual or “seem illogical or unreasonable to others,” according to rules laid out by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. But it can’t be founded solely on political or social ideas. That puts employers in the position of determining what is a legitimate religious belief and what is a dodge. Many major religious denominations have no objections to the COVID-19 vaccines. But the rollout has prompted heated debates because of the longtime role that cell lines derived from fetal tissue have played, directly or indirectly, in the research and development of various vaccines and medicines.

Roman Catholic leaders in New Orleans and St. Louis went so far as to call Johnson & Johnson’s COVID-19 shot “morally compromised.” J&J has stressed that there is no fetal tissue in its vaccine. Moreover, the Vatican’s doctrine office has said it is “morally acceptable” for Catholics to receive COVID-19 vaccines that are based on research that used cells derived from aborted fetuses. Pope Francis himself has said it would be “suicide” not to get the shot, and he has been fully vaccinated with the Pfizer formula. READ MORE

The Demon-Infused Fascists Of ANTIFA Ruthlessly Attack A Public Christian Prayer Gathering In Portland, Howling At The Name Of Jesus Christ

Shocking video shows ANTIFA members assaulting a group of Christians, including children, who were gathering in Portland, Oregon Saturday for a scheduled prayer event.

Nothing funnier than a group like ANTIFA, fascist to the core, going around spouting nonsense about being “anti-fascist”, you have to be imbecilic to believe that even for a second. But there is nothing funny about violently attacking Christians holding a prayer and preaching service, destroying their equipment and spraying them in the face with chemicals. Interesting thing, when you watch the video of the attack, what sets these devils off is when the name of Jesus is spoken over the PA system. ANTIFA literally begins to howl in rage.

Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.” John 8:44 (KJB)

So where is the outrage from the Democrats? Lol, that’s funny. They have no time to deal with actual persecution of Christians by Biden voters when they have much more important things to do like the January 6th Commission. And never you mind, mister, about all that silly $2,000,000,000.00 in damage done by ANTIFA and Black Lives Matter, the 20 people that were murdered and the two women that were raped. That was ‘peaceful protest’, and we won’t be mentioning that again.

‘Ruthless’ ANTIFA Attacks Christians, Children at Prayer Event in Portland, Oregon

FROM CBN NEWS: Journalist Andy Ngo shared a video of the large group carrying shields and weapons as they yelled profanity at the worshippers. The Christians can be heard praying as the ANTIFA members became more aggressive and violent.

A woman attending the event described the group as “ruthless.”

“Antifa just rolled in like an angry mob, started throwing flash bombs at everybody, macing everybody … rotten eggs,” she said. “They threw a flash bomb into a group of kids that were out there from four months old to like 10.”

Another attendee helped Pastor Pawlowski, who was sprayed in the face with mace.

“Walked up to ask them to stop throwing things at the children,” the man explained. “There’s kids down there, I mean they’re toddlers and they sprayed me too.”

Pastor Pawlowski, who leads the Fortress of Adullam Church in Calgary, Canada, gained attention earlier this year for reportedly violating public health restrictions on in-person worship gatherings.

ANTIFA members also destroyed a sound system and other music equipment by throwing it into the Willamette River.

“Where is your god now?” can be heard amongst the chaos.

According to The Post Millennial, the Portland Police Department did not intervene during the incident and would not interact with either group. READ MORE
