'Today unfortunately many in the media would like nothing better than to ridicule Christians,' Carroll [Florida Lieutenant Governor Jennifer Carroll] said at the Faith and Freedom Coalition rally. 'They promote The Da Vinci code, they place doubt in the public's mind that Christ was not risen, and they condemn the passion of Christ.' [Isn't that what Maryhill School of Theology does?]
The coalition rally coincided with the start of the three-day Republican Party gathering known as Presidency 5. Presidency 5 highlights include a televised debate between GOP presidential candidates and a straw poll of Florida GOP activists.
Carroll added that the media sensationalize stories about removing God from the Pledge of Allegiance and putting prayer back in schools.
"These are very sad times when we allow the minority to poison the minds of the majority," Carroll said and then added: "This is exactly what dictators and socialist rulers did." [Isn't that what the RH people do?]
Carroll is a Navy veteran who in 2003 became the first black female Republican elected to the Florida Legislature and last year became the state's first black lieutenant governor.
She was one of a long list of people, including GOP presidential candidates Gov. Rick Perry and Mitt Romney, who spoke to a crowd of several hundred people at the coalition rally.
Several of the speakers mentioned God and the Bible, but Carroll in her remarks challenged those in attendance to show their faith and help bring about a "righteous government." [Also known as "Religious Identity in the Public Square".]
"Ladies and gentlemen, Christianity is in a fight and it is one of the greatest trials we have seen in modern times," Carroll said. [Can we hear an 'Amen'?]
She also said that "in today's society we will trust the car salesman and the government more than we trust in the Lord." [BOOM! That's right in the kisser! Right Miriam Santiago?]
Howard Simon, executive director of the American Civil Liberties Union, said Carroll is free to follow any religion she wants. But he said she and other politicians want to force their religious beliefs on others in the state. [Isn't this the same language the pro-RH people are speaking?]
"What the Lt. Gov., Gov. Scott and much of the legislature want is not freedom of religion, but government-funded, government-sponsored and government-enforced religion," Simon said. "Fortunately, our constitutional values protect every Floridian from politicians who mix religion and public policy for political gain." (AP)
When a group of people especially a politician decides on important matter based on what his conscience tells him, and that his conscience was shaped by his religious conviction, his values, his very own upbringing by his own family...
Is that forcing my religion on you?
If I make a law that defends the traditional view of marriage, is that forcing my religion on you?
If I insist that marriage is the union of man and woman ONLY with the purpose of pro-creation and mutual support and love, is that forcing my religion on you?
The problem with media is that they tell you what to do. They do not want to tell you what to do.
The greatest irony is that media is against tyranny and dictatorship, the vanguard of democracy but the MEDIA EXECUTIVES will never be told what to say or do.
They are one of the biggest bullies this side of the planet.
And that is one hard fact that they know but they will never accept.
