This is a Christian blog dealing with various issues. “Discernment is not simply a matter of telling the difference between what is right and wrong; rather it is the difference between right and almost right.” -Charles Spurgeon. Scripture is my authority for all things regarding to life and godliness. 2 Cor. 10: 5 We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.

Free Speech? Not If You Disagree With Obama: three recent incidents of punishment for public disagreement
The Obama administration has minimized the threat of Islamic terrorism while elevating the threat potential from “right-wing extremism.”
As WND reported in April 2009, a DHS intelligence and analysis assessment classified “right-wing extremists” as a terrorist threat, identifying as especially dangerous military veterans who have fought in foreign wars and are “disgruntled” about the country’s direction...
Last month, WND reported Marine veteran Brandon Raub, 27, was arrested by a swarm of FBI and Secret Service agents and forcibly detained in a psychiatric ward for comments he had posted on Facebook that expressed dissatisfaction with the U.S. government.
A member of the U.S. Army Band who said he was reprimanded for having anti-Obama bumper stickers on his personal car, serving Chick-fil-A sandwiches at a party and reading books written by conservative authors like Sean Hannity is now facing Article 15 charges – which cropped up shortly after he went public with his complaints.
