A thread on our great Republic: I spent yesterday @TJMonticello the author of the #DeclarationOfIndependence our 3rd president #ThomasJefferson and standing in his study, his bedroom, reading his words, touching his papers, I found myself reflecting on the state of our nation. 1/
Jefferson was no doubt a complicated, conflicted man. He wrote "all men are created equal" and yet, he owned African slaves. He fathered 4 living children with his 15 year old slave #SallyHemings and kept her as his concubine until his death. A period of over 35 years. 2/
The Jefferson I admire, Is the one who believes passionately in #ReligiousFreedom and who wrote it into Virginia's fabric as a commonwealth. He understood that every generation must renew its founding ideals & documents. He believed it should happen every 19 years. 3/

On Sunday, Christians in ABU Zaria, St Augustine of Hippo Chapel, Kongo Campus were denied access to the hall they've been using for Mass in the last 15 years. They were forced to hold mass outside because a certain director instructed that the Church

returns the letter of permission to worship in the hall that was issued to them 15 years ago until when a permanent site is approved for them.

15 years down the lane, no permanent site to worship and now, the hall has been denied.
Right to Worship is the fundamental human right of every Nigerian guaranteed by the controversial constitution.

Note that ABU Zaria is a Federal University and not some religious institution.

@SeanathanCory @walden4pa53 @HoLichette @backtothewind0 @BernieSanders I love #ChristianMythology,
it has many beautiful parts.
But like the people who wrote it,
it is full of cruel & evil things.

Goodness was in the world long before any middle eastern men wrote the bible. Some #mythos worship knowledge instead of demonizing it.
@SeanathanCory @walden4pa53 @HoLichette @backtothewind0 @BernieSanders One red flag for me as a little girl growing up w bible study was the way they dealt with questions. Why did they assume a deity crushed up a gold statue to poison water that made the whole town sick for revenge. Doesn’t a pathogen
make more sense?
They didn’t understand germs🤷🏻‍♀️
@SeanathanCory @walden4pa53 @HoLichette @backtothewind0 @BernieSanders Surely SOMEONE in the town must have proposed the idea that there must be another explanation.
Theres always several possible questions to rule out before defaulting to magic.

Or how about the burning bush?
If it really happened,
what else could have lit it ablaze?

[A thread] Morrison is gearing up for an election based on "freedom". His rhetoric the last few days has been around giving Australians choices (he actually used this justify his #EV backflip). #auspol 1/9
Morrison is subtly, and not so subtly, painting Labor as anti-freedom and dictatorial. He is being backed of course by Murdoch. He cannot fight an election on fiscal rectitude as he has blown out a trillion dollar debt and tripled the deficit. #auspol 2/9
He is using the Victorian lockdowns and other Labor states border closures (WA and QLD) as political weapons - using them as evidence of Labor's willingness to curtail personal freedoms and choice. #auspol 3/9…

A thread on order, chaos and freedom of speech

In our world with time, order emerges from chaos, and chaos emerges from order. Hence even in complete anarchy, freedom of speech slowly becomes a logical option, people can still believe what they want (1/n)
But when they speak openly about it in a public discourse, they stand to be corrected, by opinions which the public deem are better. What we call things around us, and each other, including people who find themselves on the fringes of society (2/n)
For example, what people call a transgender woman, evolves from what people feel is socially acceptable speech, and order emerges even without things being mandated as law. That is why freedom of speech is the primary way a society regulates itself (3/n)

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?

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

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
