There is more in store, as you already must suspect. Lindsay Beyerstein is still doing incredible investigative work on the traps that are being set to catch us all before we have a chance to notice. Freedom of religion is the foundation of this country, in theory. In practice it never was, only certain religions were given respect. The Native American tribes had religion, and they were told to convert or be massacred. They were massacred.
I hope you are not feeling too upset that I overturn your illusions. This was never a very free country, but it always had the imagination of becoming one. The fact is that we have moved closer to the ideal at the same time that other forces have been moving against us. The government has been taken over by people inimical to freedom, but we never planned for it to be otherwise when we made our constitution.
The purpose of that document was to slow the slide.
We are here now and there is no time. It is all as it is supposed to be but we have to wake up and take our places in the drama that unfolds. This illegitimate regime will be peacefully transformed by our truth.
Lindsay refers us to a Washington Post article from Saturday, by Erwin Chemerinsky, which reveals a little known bill that passed the house of representatives this summer.
The Public Expression of Religion Act – H.R. 2679 – provides that attorneys who successfully challenge government actions as violating the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment shall not be entitled to recover attorneys fees.
