Because if Christians ever got together and created their own parallel markets and institutions, the established markets and institutions would suddenly be dis-established–left high and dry and irrelevant. And the best the worldly folk can do is to keep attacking Christians, keep us on the defensive, so we won’t suddenly wake up and realize how strong we could be.
We have no king but Jesus Christ.
Example: Education, or what we laughingly refer to as “education.” What do you suppose would happen to the public schools if tens of millions of Christian children left and never came back? How hard is that to figure out? Or the colleges and universities: what if there were enough Christian colleges for Christian families to send their kids to?
What if there were banks owned and operated by Christians, serving Christians, social media platforms that never censor Christians, cable news shows owned by Christians, etc. etc.? You see the point. All those left-wing-friendly institutions, for most of the people in America, would become irrelevant. They would either have to clean up their act or die.
Don’t look for CNN/MSNBC to clean up their act under any circumstances. They will go under. (Not a dry eye in the house!)
Or, as we like to say on this blog… Starve the beast.
But all the other restrictions, the court allowed to remain in place. No singing. Limited number of worshipers allowed to come inside. All the court did was to allow a few people to venture into a house of worship.
Yeah, we’re still waking up in Mandatistan every day–where there is no legislation, no debate, no compromise: just a lot of “mandates” handed down by tinpot tyrants who never apply them to themselves.
The court could have sided with the plaintiffs all the way, and told Gov. Noisome no, you can’t keep people out of church, you can’t prohibit them from singing or praying together, you can’t limit the church to 25% capacity. They could’ve done those things, but didn’t.
Justices Kavanagh and Barrett, whom we fought for, prayed for, and defended–guess what? They’ve let us down again! It seems they’re pretty cool with most of the restrictions.
“Permission to worship God, O master!”
Starting to sound like the Book of Exodus, isn’t it?
P.S.–Y’know what I’d like to see ’em restrict in California? A “Pride” parade! Go on, California–restrict that! I dare you.
Where do people think computers get their “smarts” from? Do you think a Google gizmo can “know” anything that some human programmer didn’t put in?
Sometimes we, as Christians, have to purchase goods and services from non-Christians, or even from bad people–because that’s the fallen world we live in. But God forbid we should ever turn to Google for any kind of guidance.
“Alexa, what must I do to be saved?” is a foolish question.
Liberals will not rest until they destroy the Christian religion.
This is why they’re always trying to force Christians to take part in same-sex pseudo-marriages. In 2015 Australia was working on legislation to force the Roman Catholic Church to change its teachings. Here in America, the Obama crowd tried to dictate to churches whom they could hire to teach church school–but ran up against a 9-0 Supreme Court ruling.
Yeah, the government’s gonna do all those wonderful things that God never got around to doing, and all it takes is infinite money, infinite coercion, and The Smartest People In The World calling all the shots. If only we give them enough power over us, they’ll give us paradise on earth.

A Minnesota resident who put up Christmas lights has received an anonymous letter from some neighborhood nut who complains, we quote:
“I couldn’t help but notice your Christmas light display. During these unprecedented times, we have all experienced challenges which casual words just don’t describe what we’re feeling. The idea of twinkling colorful lights are a reminder of divisions that continue to run through our society, a reminder of systemic biases against our neighbors who don’t celebrate Christmas or who can’t afford to put up lights of their own.” There was also some bilge about “educating ourselves about the harmful impact an outward-facing display like yours can have.”
Great Caesar’s ghost. What unnatural womb gave birth to… that?
This presumably human being makes two points:
If someone else doesn’t celebrate Christmas, you shouldn’t be allowed to, either.
If someone else can’t afford something, you shouldn’t be allowed to have it.
We are also asked to believe that the American people really dig this schiff and have voted for four solid years of it.
No way. Absolutely no way.
But take a good look–this is Far Left Crazy wowserism. This is a peek into the inner mind of the Democrat Party. That’s the party that steals elections. This is what you find inside their heads.
I always have trouble wrapping my mind around the fact that in historically Christian countries–like the U.S. Canada, and Britain–there are people, born and raised in this country, who hate Christianity and embrace, with open eyes, alien moral standards dreamed up by crackpots and villains.
They can also look at Venezuela and still say, with a straight face, “Socialism works!”
