“Ooooh! What you just thought!”
[Thanks to Susan for the nooze tip.]
Is Britain still going to be here by 2100? I have my doubts.
So now they’ve got a law against “protesting” within 500 feet of an abortion clinic (that’s a place where they kill babies). “Protesting” includes prayer–even silent prayer (https://www.christianitytoday.com/news/2023/january/uk-abortion-clinic-prayer-buffer-pspo-religious-freedom-adf.html).
What? How do they know you’re praying silently? Do they read your mind?
This isn’t quite a law yet, although people have been arrested for praying and charged with I don’t know what–felony prayer, maybe? It’s a Public Space Protection Order. Its supporters want it to become national legislation applying everywhere in the UK. Currently it’s only “sorta” law in a few major cities. I guess if you’re out for a walk in the country and you pray silently, they can’t bust you for it. Yet. The almost-law went on the books last year.
Supposedly this creates a “safe space” around the abortion abattoir. Ain’t too safe for the babies, though, is it?
What if some violent gang member, hired as a police officer to meet a Diversity Quota, just, well, thinks you’re praying silently–you look like you might be doing it–and clubs or tazes you just in case?
Our War for Independence has never looked like such a good idea as it does now.

There have been similar arrests here in the USA, although not under a law that forbids prayer specifically. Rather, people have been arrested because their attitude of prayer (heads bowed, hands clasped, etc.) creates a “hostile or threatening environment” for the women going into the abortuaries, even if the silent prayer is going on across the street from the abortuary. When I used to be part of a prayer group in front of one of my city’s abortuaries, simply stepping accidentally on a blade of grass from the facility’s lawn that had straggled onto the public sidewalk where we were standing (supposedly at a legal distance from the place) could get someone arrested for trespassing.
That abortuary has since closed, by the way. God heard our prayers, even the silent ones.
Somehow, every Godless reproate in the Western world has managed to worm their way into power. There is a breaking point coming.
Daniel understood the prohibition of prayer. He boldly prayed anyway, although he knew the horrible death that awaited him if he did.
Somehow we Americans got pulled into exile without actually going anywhere.
Brother Lee, I have a fairly good idea of how this kind of thing might have come about in much of the Western world. I need a few days to type it out, it’s a bit long, and may seem a bit harsh, so instead of posting it here, I would like to run it by you, and let you decide if you would like to post it.
Okay, you can email it to me. But I would rather not be harsh toward any of my guests here.
I understand, that is why, if you feel it is too harsh, you do not have to post it. It may take a day or two, but I will email it when I am done.
