Events in the world, United States, and North Carolina have me just feeling so powerless. I have little power to stand up, and if I do I have to be ready to face reprisals because of where I live. Being a Christian that does not agree with the hate that has been growing in my religion does not compute in my rural Southern area. But nooses at Duke University and the NC General Assembly having its own Religious Restoration Freedom Act has just made the world a bit sadder. The idea that corporations can hold religious beliefs is just crazy and the fact that the State that had Baptist push for the Bill of Rights now being so far from the history of when religous freedom really was threatened scares me. Religious people came here to be free of businesses discriminating against them, of having government rules infringe upon their beliefs and life. Now these "institutions are helping to indoctrinate hate and the belief that God is OK with it. Guess that is why this pic I re-read on my Blog reminded me of why we must speak out when something is wrong.
Government Sanctioned Hate and Discrimination of any people group is WRONG!
The thing about this Law, whether you believe it singles out one group or not is that it's broad enough that ANY religion or group can employ its merit. I'm not saying you're wrong for not agreeing with it, just that YOU still have the CHOICE to employ the Law or not. And for the people and places that DO, you can show your lack of support by not patroning them.
And he is the reason why I still have hope that things can change. That evil can be overcome, that good will win, that desperation will be forgotten, and that hope can always save us. Thank you, Doctor... For helping me believe.
