I understand everyone has a right to their own religious beliefs and will defend that right. But why do christians have to be quiet and others don't. I have no problem reposting this. I do have a problem being asked to not show my religion too much! I have a problem with the media and anyone else who leaves out words like Christ or God because they may be afraid to offend someone. It offends me!
On the "Today Show", Matt Lauer interviewed one of the wives of one of the Navy Seals killed along with the US ambassador in Libya. He asked what she would say to her children about their dad and how she would want them to remember him. Her answer, and I quote, "His love for Christ", and then continued on with a few other things. Throughout the day and on MSN homepage, replaying the story, they have edited the "Love for Christ" part out. Why? Because using the word Christ might offend someone! Well, I am a Christian and I am offended! I'm offended that they would edit it out. Offended that we as Christians are asked to tread lightly so as not to offend someone of another religion. This man loved his country and loved his God and gave his life for both, just as Christ gave His life for him.
This Founding Principle is actually embedded in our Declaration of Independence: “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”
I hope every Christian who is offended will copy this and paste it to their status.....
If we ever forget that we're one nation under GOD, then we will be a nation gone under. -Ronald Reagan
**Before you say it, I already know that a lot of you don't copy & paste.** it's easy... hold your finger on this post when the word copy appears just touch it then go to your home page and where it says "what's on your mind" touch it and hold your finger where you would start writing your comment and "paste" should appear??????????. If you read to the end, can I get an "Amen!"
