'Tolerance' really means changing our religion

Some of the people who do not want to live God’s laws want the majority of the people to not do so also. They say to close the Bibles and be tolerant. In order to make them “feel comfortable,” for example, they want transgenders to shower with our daughters or sons, which makes the majority “feel uncomfortable.”

People I know have hired gays to work for them and they are treated well. But, when it becomes “official law” then “our” churches and businesses will be sued because their demands maybe against “our” beliefs! If we don’t stand up for our freedom of religion now, it will be gone.

All of our laws actually can be considered to discriminate. When a woman is in labor and needs to get to the hospital fast, she sill has to obey the speed laws. If a person isn’t preferred for something, then that person is supposed to get superior treatment (top of the list) and society is forced to give all that is wanted or be sued, at the expense of the “feelings” of the majority? Can people see that when that happens, they are asking the majority to suspend their beliefs? If you were adopted, would you like to have two mommies or two daddies?

We must fight for religious freedom, now. After we have done all we can do, God will finish the victory. But, how can “we” win a battle “we” don’t fight? We are here for a purpose. Our faith must include our actions. This is about family, religion and freedom.

Our state and national representatives need truckloads of letters right now.
