I Prayed have prayed
Father, we want a godly culture in America. Keep our government from discriminating against those who hold to the Bible.

Years ago, Supreme Court Justice Alito predicted that those who hold to a biblical view of marriage would be targeted by their government. Now, not even a decade later, he has been proved right.

From WORLD. There’s no worse feeling than being proven right when you’ve predicted something would go wrong. … With a jeremiad appropriate to an Old Testament prophet, Justice Samuel Alito is experiencing just such unwelcome vindication this week from his dissent in the gay marriage case, Obergefell v. Hodges. There, Alito predicted that a day would soon come when people of faith who held to traditional morality regarding sexuality would be “labeled as bigots and treated as such” by their government. Well, that day has come less than one decade later. …

A Missouri state employee who identifies as “a lesbian who presents masculine” sued her employer, the Department of Corrections, alleging she was “improperly stereotyped and discriminated against based on sex.” During voir dire, the portion of the pretrial process when the attorneys interview potential jurors, her attorney asked whether any prospective jurors “went to a conservative Christian church” where “it was taught that people [who] are homosexual shouldn’t have the same rights as everyone else” because “what they did” was “a sin.” [The] plaintiff’s attorney asked the judge to dismiss two jurors who said homosexuality was a sin. … The judge granted the motion. …

Missouri appealed the case to the U.S. Supreme Court, where the justices issued an order on Tuesday declining to take the petition. But Justice Alito … proceeded to launch full bore against religious discrimination targeting people of faith in jury pools. … Rather than trusting that jurors can set aside their religious beliefs and focus on the facts of the case, the attorneys and judges … decided that targeting people of faith was acceptable.

The Supreme Court and lower courts have issued scores of opinions condemning racial discrimination in jury pools, which used to be a real problem in many parts of the country. … That was deeply wrong, and the same principle should hold for hand-picking a jury based on religion — discriminating based on religion violates the First Amendment just as much as discriminating based on race violates the 14th. …

It’s so sad! The last time, 10 years ago when I was called to Jury Duty. I was asked if I could render a fair decision. I simply said “I will have to pray about it”. I was dismissed and never got another Jury Duty call. I’m not ashamed of God!

Leftist Christianity is worse than Paganism. see John Zmirak posts on the Stream. Time to wake up. Be careful what church you attend and give money to. The Christian charities at the border are the worst for smuggling in illegals.

Watch this video and see what is really going on with “He gets US” The video was intended as a rebuke to conservative Christians. Jesus was not about smuggling illegals into US or washing gay mens feet.

Deuteronomy 16:18-19
Lord I seek the practice of Biblical Justice in our Courts and the protection of people of faith from being disqualified to serve on Juries.
Psalm 37:30 The mouth of the righteous utters wisdom, and his tongue speaks justice.
