Is it right for some in government to tell us who we want to live with in our neighborhoods or associate with in our workplaces or schools? We are charged with “hate crimes” if we speak out against the evils of terrorists who attack our country and despise our core values. Some “alternative lifestyles” or their “special groups” are constantly telling us what to accept as good. I believe that we as American citizens have a right to speak out against injustices wherever they happen to exist. As the Constitution states, God gives us this right, not the people in our government; that is what “inalienable” means.
We have people in Congress who think that the only solution to every problem is to throw money at it as long as it is not theirs. They want to take my hard-earned money and create massive bureaucracies to “give” relief to the less fortunate (who have stopped looking for a job and like sitting back and collecting more and more). Every one of us is known to the people in our government through our Social Security Number and the records they or their civilian information gatherers compile about us.

Because they think the only real education our children get should be provided by the state, our right to love and protect our families has been taken away from us. This government has allowed the Teachers Unions around the country to operated with impunity. Consequently, our right to have a say in our children’s educations in schools that we pay for has been taken away from us. When did we give up the right to act in the best interest of our family in choosing where we will spend our money or what school should be allowed to teach our children? If I want to send my child to a private school, that is my right. If I want to teach my child at home, I should be allowed to do so as long as my child can pass all the tests taken by the ones who attend public schools.
When did we give up the right to resist anyone who ridicules us for whatever reasons they choose? I believe in God and am proud to say so. That is not a hate crime; it is a fact. I don’t insist that you do, but I would love to help you if you want or need it. If you decide on your own to accept my God, I will do everything I can to help you on your way to eternal life.
If you choose to live with someone of the same sex, that is your right. If you want the state to condone that union, that is your right. If you want the Catholic Church to condone your union, that is not your right. It is mine. You can call your union anything you want, but you will not receive the blessings of the Holy Spirit or the sanctifying grace that comes from the sacrament of Matrimony, which is reserved for a Man and Women who are joined together by God.
I for one am sick and tired (to borrow a phrase from Bill Cosby) of hearing people give convoluted explanations to justify actions at the city, county, state, and federal levels. The hair stands up on my head when I hear them or our president say “Let me make this very clear.” I know I am in for a snow job when I hear those words from any official, especially my president. I will resist to my dying breath anyone who tries to take my rights away from me or my family, and that is not a Hate Crime. My rights come from Almighty God and not the sniveling, wheedling, dishonest politicians in our government. If you agree with me, hug your children and give them butterfly kisses and then step up and let your elected officials know where you stand.
