Op Ed: Burgeoning Police State: Where’s the Clergy?

What is it going to take for pastors and churches to wake up and realize that America is in the throes of a burgeoning police state?

Ladies and gentlemen, the long-standing veneration for law and order does not include blind submission to governmental abuse of power.

Yet, it seems that very few Christian conservatives are even paying attention to what is happening before their very eyes.
For example, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has purchased more than 2 billion rounds of hollow-point ammunition (enough to wage a 30-year war); the DHS has purchased over 7,000 AR-15s.
The DHS calls them Personal Defense Weapons (PDW).

These are the same semi-automatic rifles with high capacity magazines that when you and I buy them are called “assault rifles.”

Dear Christian friend, how can you stay in a church where the pastor will not take a stand for your liberties?

How can you give such a church your tithes and offerings?

Do you not realize that any pastor and church that refuses to fight and protect your liberties is helping to put the shackles of tyranny and oppression around the necks of your families?
Regardless of how sound you believe your pastor to be doctrinally, or how educated he is, or how much Hebrew and Greek he knows, or how warm and caring he is, or how much you personally like him, if he is not willing to take a public stand for your liberties, he is a willing accomplice to the demise of our republic.
Christian, please wake up! Your liberties are being systematically expunged.

While you are waving your hands and praising Jesus and are fixated on your pastor and church staying doctrinally pure, the sacred principles that protect your right to freely worship, and speak, and defend your family are disappearing.

    The other night on Fox News Channel, Charles Krauthammer (who definitely doesn’t seem to be a liberal and who’s not crazy about Obama) said that he’s satisfied by Homeland Security’s explanation that all that ammo and arms are necessary for the training of the Border Patrol.

    I think we all know that training takes LOTS of ammunition, so maybe the billions of rounds isn’t excessive after all. The hollow points will be used during actual patrols? All those vicious-looking “assault” rifles will be used to patrol the border(s)? Those “mine-resistant” vehicles will protect Border Patrol agents?

    I don’t begrudge the Border Patrol any and all equipment that makes it more likely they’ll survive any encounter with a gang from Mexico (or a gang of al Qaeda terrorists).

    I’m somewhat reassured by Krauthammer’s explanation. I HOPE he’s absolutely correct.

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
