Follow this link to the story of an African American pastor fined and jailed for peacefully protesting at an abortion facility in California. There are a growing number of incidences in this country where people of religious conscience are being censored, punished, or marginalized simply because of their religious views. We need to be aware of these things without panic or getting wrapped up in conspiracy theories, but also with the understanding that the times are changing and the priviledged position that Christianity had enjoyed in this country is rapidly disappearing. God may be trying to get our attention and help us, as Christians, to wake up and stop taking our freedoms and our Faith for granted. Jesus told us that in the world we would have many troubles but that we were not to fear because he had overcome the world. Now is chance to understand this and act.
