Dan Clements, Your Constitutional Warrior  Monday June 12, 2017

Why aren’t more Americans more opened minded when it comes to what they think is true and factual, when they are shown that it is not? Why when ideas are debated do some turn so violent they will attack fellow Americans? America was founded on ideas that were debated and talked out. Some of the ideas were found to be good and other no so much. But our founders did debate and did manage to create a country we should all be proud of!!!

For more than 30 years folks who attended centers of higher learning were taught there is only one way to look at anything, and views that differ from the “norm” should be defeated, not just through debate, but if needs be these differing views need to be violently opposed. Anti-freedom ideas are to be advanced at any cost, and those who are opposed to them are labeled with some of the most hateful rhetoric that can be found!!!

America, freedom, and liberty are ideas that need to be defended. We can’t force folks to believe in these ideas, but we can debate these ideas to see if they stand up to fair scrutiny. We need to oppose the violence of the anti-freedom crowds as they try to shut free speech down and control the ideas that affect the American way of life.

To walk through life with a closed mind will make you intellectually poor, and your life will be lessor for it!!! To challenge what we and others believe with a loving attitude is a long, good and well established tradition of America, and if we loose this tradition, we will cease to exist as a nation!!!

Daily Bible Reading: Acts 7:54-60 When they heard these things they were cut to the heart, and they gnashed at him with their teeth.55 But he, being full of the Holy Spirit, gazed into heaven and saw the glory of God, and Jesus standing at the right hand of God,56 and said, “Look! I see the heavens opened and the Son of Man standing at the right hand of God!”57 Then they cried out with a loud voice, stopped their ears, and ran at him with one accord; 58 and they cast him out of the city and stoned him. And the witnesses laid down their clothes at the feet of a young man named Saul.59 And they stoned Stephen as he was calling on God and saying, “Lord Jesus, receive my spirit.”60 Then he knelt down and cried out with a loud voice, “Lord, do not charge them with this sin.” And when he had said this, he fell asleep.

Quotemeal: “We need never shout across the spaces to an absent God. He is nearer than our own soul, closer than our most secret thoughts.” — A. W. Tozer
