I think its time to talk about #ReligiousFreedom and exactly where one person’s #freedom starts, and another’s ends. And no I’m not talking about a woman’s body dividing cells, I’m talking about breathing adults who #vote
#ReligiousFreedom is SO important to everybody. And I agree that I ALSO want my own #FreedomOfReligion. But other people DON’T get to define that.
I am in charge of my own #belief systems. You could even say I’m RESPONSIBLE for them🤔
No matter how wacky they got, the point in time where I am no longer allowed to practice my #Religion, would start IF it harmed another breathing adult, and that word #harm is pretty loaded too, isn’t it?
How do we define #Freedom?
How do we define #Life?

A reminder: many faiths see the Texas abortion ban as a VIOLATION of #ReligiousFreedom. #utpol…
While we're a big tent on abortion and public policies related to reproduction, we find this from @johnastoehr to be an important gut-check. At what point does a law violate moral agency and cross into unrighteous dominion?…

#BREAKING: A federal court just tossed out a lawsuit by a former Catholic-school guidance counselor who broke her contract by entering a same-sex union in violation of Church teaching. This is a big win for #ReligiousFreedom.…
The guidance counselor claimed that asking Catholic teachers to uphold Catholic teaching is illegal discrimination.…
.@BECKETlaw argued that Catholic schools exist to teach the faith to the next generation, and they can’t do that effectively if the law forces them to employ teachers who oppose core aspects of the Catholic faith.…

The #Constitution was founded on the idea that the role of government is to protect God-given rights.

Now, that doctrine is under assault, and the numerous rights of Americans are in jeopardy. (Thread👇)

Watch FREE on @EpochTVus:…
As a new narrative is being taught to America’s youth: #FreeSpeech is being worn down through #Censorship, #ReligiousFreedom is being suppressed, and the right to bear arms is being called into doubt.

As history itself is being rewritten, what does the future hold for America?
Join host @JoshJPhilipp as he speaks with experts including @DineshDSouza, @VDHanson, Rick Green, Trevor Loudon, @MaryGrabar, Thomas K. Lindsay, Kevin Roberts, Craig Parshall, Dustin Bass, and K. Lloyd Billingsley in “America Rewritten.”…

From requiring a mask outdoors, to subjecting citizens to gov’t pre-approval for a BBQ, to restricting the free exercise of religion — enough is enough

The unending control over people’s lives must end — that’s why I filed suit against St. Louis Co today
3 weeks ago I sent a letter to St Louis Co expressing deep concern about the ongoing Stay-At-Hone-Order & asked for evidence for their extreme restrictions. Not only did they ignore our request for justification, they pulled a bait and switch & issued a new amended order
After review of the amended order it become clear, given the number of typos & blatant inconsistencies that this was rushed out the door in an attempt to appease our office and avoid litigation.

It did not. #COVIDー19

Protecting the LGBTQIA community from discrimination is a great thing. About damn time, in fact.

"But my religious freedoms!" we're hearing.
They still exist. This is just stopping you enforcing your faith on other people.
You know, infringing on THEIR religious freedoms.
You know who else complained about losing their religious freedoms?

White people, when black people were protected from discrimination.

Men, when women were protected from discrimination.
It sounds like your religion is built around telling other people what they can and can't do.

Rather than telling you how to live your own damn life.

#China's crackdown on its tiny congregation of #Jews. ~100 practising in a community of ~1,000. That such a small group can attract the #CommunistParty’s ire shows how far the suppression goes @TelegraphWorld @Telegraph… #religiousfreedom #Hanukkah
Ancestors of those in #China claiming Jewish heritage – prob merchants from Persia – settled >1,000 yrs ago in Kaifeng, then a bustling imperial capital during Northern Song Dynasty. Through dynasties, wars, natural disasters, Cultural Revolution, they kept their history alive
Pressure now renewed under Chinese leader Xi Jinping's campaign against foreign influence, unsanctioned religions - all part of push to 'Sinicise' faith in #China. But the Kaifeng #Jews are a resilient bunch - as I discovered on a recent visit

It is with much dismay that we must report, in the occasion of research for an article we are writing, that we have learned about direct ties between the Gluten Free Certification and OU Ko$her Certification that have existed since 2005!
#Supremacy 🐗…
”The GFCO was developed in cooperation with the Food Services, Inc., a subsidiary of the Orthodox Union (the “OU”), the world’s largest and oldest kosher certification agency.”

“The OU’s nearly 500 field representatives, proficient in modern food production techniques and chemical and biological processes, will conduct plant inspections and product reviews for the GFCO.”

And so there is a money flow from GF to Orthodox Union!🐗

In Fulton v. City of Philadelphia, experts weigh in on faith-based #fostercare and #religiousfreedom.

From @asmauddinesq:
"For Catholics, foster care is not merely good; it is holy." #FreeToFoster

From Archbishop @ThomasWenski, @usccbfreedom
"It's no wonder that so many successful foster parents say that the support of their faith community and the religious agencies they partner with has been a vital resource." #FreeToFoster #SCOTUS #Fulton #fostercare

Great news! Two Texas brothers just defeated one of the dumbest attacks on #ReligiousFreedom you will find: Their school banned them from all sports and clubs unless they cut sacred braids they’ve kept as a religious vow since birth. 1/ Image
In Cesar’s infancy, his parents made a religious vow never to cut a lock of his hair if he was healed from meningitis. He was healed, and he and his brother have kept the vow ever since. This kind of “promesa” has deep roots among Mexican Catholics. 2/ Image
From K-6th grade, the Mathis TX school district let the boys keep their hair without any problems. But in 7th grade (2017) the district barred them from all interscholastic competition. Cesar was banned from football; Diego was taken off the Science Team. 3/ Image

This is the #DemPartyPlatform for 2020. This part is called: Supporting Faith & Service
Only one party has a stated plan to support all our communities of faith in all their diversity. No individual or group is left out or targeted as worthy of suspicion & discrimination. 1/13 Image
Religious freedom is a core American value and a core value of the Democratic Party. 2/13

.@AdeleScalia inspired me. Justice Ginsburg was more than a seat on #SCOTUS. Let’s tweet accordingly (thread)
Justice Ginsburg passed away yesterday after a long battle with cancer. She fought hard to continue serving as long as she could, including participating in oral arguments from a hospital room in May. She embraced suffering for what she believed to be a just cause. (1/5)
She had a remarkable legal career. A gifted advocate and legal strategist at the ACLU, she then served on the DC Circuit and spent nearly three decades on SCOTUS. She was a trailblazer in a generation in which few women would become lawyers, much less make it to #SCOTUS. (2/5)

(1/4) #Catholics for Biden event in #Pittsburgh? Seriously?

@JoeBiden chose a running mate who is overtly & stringently anti-Catholic, imposing religious tests on public office when asking if a judge appointee was a member of #KnightsofColumbus. #prolife…
(2/4) And then there’s @JoeBiden’s total support for #abortion, the greatest human rights issue of our time.

And it’s actually not just one issue-it’s 60 million issues.

60 million lives have been lost since #Roe.

60 million.
(3/4) Every year, thousands of #lateterm babies who feel pain are aborted.

Thousands feel pain. Science says so. @JoeBiden supports late term #abortions & he wants taxpayers to pay for it.

#Catholics for Biden are comfortable w/ thousands of late term, pain-filled abortions.

When we read headlines about people groups being persecuted, harassed, arrested, beaten, imprisoned or even killed for their faith, our hearts should yearn for a way that their hardships can be eased because they are just like us.
Whether it is the believers in China or the christians being killed in Zangon Kataf area in Kaduna state,
We must engage in prayer for them, that the God will deliver them from these attacks, strengthen them, and cause the hearts of their persecutors to bow to His divine will.
And like Paul in 2 Corinthians 12:9, they will get God's revelation which says, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.’ Therefore, I will boast more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me.” #ReligiousFreedom

Today’s #SCOTUS win in #Espinoza v. Montana Board of Revenue is a BIG VICTORY for #religiousfreedom not just in schools, but across the board. Here’s why (THREAD):
First, the Court said that Blaine Amendments are “born of bigotry” and “arose at a time of pervasive hostility to the Catholic Church” and thus have a “shameful pedigree.” (2/9)
If you have any doubts about the rampant discrimination behind Blaine Amendments, Justice Alito included in his concurring opinion an 1871 Thomas Nast cartoon from our brief that shows the anti-Catholic bigotry of the day. (3/9)
