What's Going On?

ACLU Sues to Remove 10 Commandments Display From NM Courthouse Lawn


California: High School Math Teacher to Be Fired for Calling Student ‘Jew Boy’



These stories caught my eye this past week.  All of them, except the last, occurred the third week of February.  And none of them are related to the battery the Catholic Church is undergoing regarding the mandate to have them go against their beliefs, a mandate that is wrongly focusing on women’s health and not the fact that this Administration is acting in direct contradiction to the First Amendment:   Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof

America, what is going on?


My mind cannot begin to comprehend the assault religion is undergoing in our nation.  It wasn’t long ago that we all remembered our Judeo-Christian heritage.  While some did not agree, they did not attack what our country is founded upon, at least not this openly and frequently.


Questions:  What are your thoughts as you read these headlines?  How does it make you feel?  What other headlines are catching your attention?
