No pain, no gain. Exercising the First Amendment.

It's stated in the header why this blog. The overarching motivation is spiritual outreach. To help fellow (true) Christians discern false ones. So, the First Amendment freedom to exercise religion.

As the end of the End Times approach, there are going to be a LOT more false christians around. In fact, they will become the majority and will murder the minority. And so the murderers will believe they are the true believers because their god allowed them to remove their adversaries. In a way, it's already started as those on the Left strive silence those on the Right using the world's legal system. (Look for a uniting of false christians with radical Muslims and radicalized Jews in the future.)

But as the Apostle Paul said, that's the fate of true believers. "... we are considered as sheep to be slaughtered." (Romans 8:36.) Such is life when you're a living sacrifice. We know we're blessed when people falsely say all kinds of evil against us because of our faith. So, while, admittedly it hurts a bit, we try to consider it a "momentary trouble." It goes with the territory.

But maybe you're wondering if this blog is written in retaliation?

We hope not. For that would be sin. In the Bible, the Apostle Paul said, "Do not take revenge, my friends, but leave room for God's wrath, for it is written: 'It is mine to avenge; I will repay,' says the Lord." Romans 12:19

Can you write about someone without the spirit of retaliation? Sure, God does it in the Bible all the time. See 1 Timothy 1:19-20 where the Apostle Paul names names. (Gasp!) And of course, you know He named Jezebel.

But you know what? There will come a time when everything is laid bare and we will all have to give an account to God. So everything about you is going to be known someday by everybody. For some who have shipwrecked their faith, that time might come sooner rather than later.

But in addition to the First Amendment freedom to exercise our religion, our blogger does this exercise as a good American. To exercise your First Amendment freedom of speech. Which clearly is under attack . . . by our fellow "americans." Even judges.

So "Use it or lose it," as is said.

Have you noticed how those who have nothing to fear don't try to silence their opponents? As with the debate between Creationists and Evolutionists? Or by getting Injunctions Against Harassment to shut you up?

Interestingly there was a similar situation in Quartzsite (Arizona) recently where a Denise Florian, a public official, sought and obtained an Injunction to shut up Jennifer Jones. Search the web for "Denise Florian." She's left some colorful voice mails around. (Warning: Language.)

According to reports, Florian made it clear to the judge that she wanted Jones to stop publishing stuff about her. (As here on this blog?) Florian consider that "harassment." And so misused harassment law to harass.

Fortunately, even though Judge Larry King did not comply with the law and granted the Injunction, he did not go so far as to tell Jones she didn't have a First Amendment right to free speech.

But we will admit that, in a bit of irony, if cheating judge Mary Hamm hadn't told our blogger he didn't have a First Amendment right to free speech, we might not be here today. For that was one of the spiritual signs our blogger took as guidance.

Likewise, if the late Melody Bodine hadn't sought an Injunction Against Harassment against our blogger, we certainly wouldn't be here today. So, if you will, she started this blog.

Then she did it again in her latest incarnation as Melody Thomas-Morgan. We're forced to conclude that, in a perverse sort of way, she must enjoy the attention.

So, as long as our blogger is told he doesn't have a right to Free Speech, he hopes to continue to fight for your rights. After all, like Jennifer Jones, you could be next. All it takes is a colorful woman who has a lot to hide.
