(COMMENTS IN PARENTHESES IN BLACK)
Ake Green, pastor of a Pentecostal church, was sentenced to one month in prison!
This is an elderly man, a gentle and humble man of God (MAN OF GOD??) who loves people and loves the Lord (LOVES THE LORD??) . So what did he do to be sent to prison? What was his crime?
Sentenced to Prison for PREACHING THE GOSPEL! (AND WHAT GOSPEL WOULD THAT BE??)
Do not let this happen in your church. Join our nationwide campaign for free speech by signing our FREEDOM OF SPEECH online petition right now.
Pastor Green was condemned in Swedish court for citing biblical references at his church in Kalmar, Sweden - like Romans 1:24-27 - against sexual immorality.
Prosecutors claim that Pastor Green's sermon was a "hate speech against homosexuals." Ridiculous!
God is clear on the issue. It is our responsibility as Christians (WHAT KIND OF CHRISTIANS??) and our right as free citizens to proclaim biblical truth.
Tragically, it seems the right to free speech has been struck down in Sweden. A Swedish hate crimes law forbids criticism of homosexuality. Canada recently passed similar legislation.
These laws have become weapons to intimidate and punish those who dare to cry out for morality and truth. (WHAT KIND OF TRUTH??)
The governor in the state of California recently passed similar legislation into law!
Attacks on your religious free speech are gaining momentum!
"Americans United for Separation of Church and State: (AU) claims that it is illegal for your church and your church leaders to take a stand on issues that may be of concern in the elections. (ABSOLUTELY WRONG!! THERE IS NOTHING THAT KEEPS A 'CHURCH' FROM SAYING ANYTHING IT WANTS -- ALL THEY WOULD HAVE TO DO IS RENOUNCE THEIR TAX-EXEMPT STATUS!!)
They threaten lawsuits and the loss of churches' tax-exempt status. (SO WHAT!! BIG DEAL!! NO 'CHURCH' SHOULD BE TAX EXEMPT ANYWAY!!)
Right now, in the midst of a high stakes national election campaign, many church pastors and Christian leaders are silent. They are afraid to talk about same-sex marriage, abortion, and any issues of morality that might pertain to an election.
(THIS IS PERSECUTION?? THE FACT THAT A 'CHURCH' MIGHT LOSE ITS TAX-EXEMPT STATUS IF IT SPEAKS OUT AGAINST IMMORALITY?? THEY HAVE NO IDEA WHAT PERSECUTION IS!!)
What an affront to the First Amendment! It is only a matter of time before our freedoms are eroded enough so that YOUR PASTOR, AND EVEN YOU, FACE ARREST for speaking publicly from God's Word or personal Bible-based conviction.
We cannot allow that to happen! Will you join me to stop this persecution of Christians (WHAT KIND OF CHRISTIANS??) from COMING TO AMERICA?
Just sign our FREEDOM OF SPEECH online petition in support of the "Houses of Worship Free Speech Restoration Act (H.R. 235)."
The "Houses of Worship Free Speech Restoration Act" would protect religious free speech in churches and other houses of worship by stopping government intimidation.
And it would keep America from throwing innocent believers (WHAT KIND OF BELIEVERS??) like Ake Green behind bars for quoting scripture!
Alone, I am only one voice...you are only one voice. But together, we can lift a mighty cry for freedom! So, please sign our FREEDOM OF SPEECH online petition today.
And after you sign the petition, please forward this email on to five friends or family members who want to fight for First Amendment freedoms by joining our Center for Moral Clarity petition campaign. Please do this immediately, for the sake of freedom. Thank you.
(WHAT HYPOCRISY! IT IS THE SELF-RIGHTEOUS RELIGIOUS WORLD, LIKE THIS 'PASTOR' IN SWEDEN, WHO HATE TRUE CHRISTIANS!!!!)
