Is This Really What America Has Come To?
Students Wearing Pro-life Beanies Kicked Out of Smithsonian Museum...
“Sometimes people don’t want to hear the truth because they don’t want their illusions destroyed.” ~ Friedrich Nietzsche (1844-1900)
A few days ago, Fox News reported the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum booted a dozen Catholic high school students and their chaperones for wearing beanies embroidered with a pro-life message.
Is this what we have come to in this country?
How hell-bent-for-leather are abortion supporters who would deliberately violate the students’ constitutional rights over a simple pro-life beanie?
On Jan. 20, students and chaperones from Our Lady of the Rosary School in Greenville, South Carolina, traveled to Washington, D.C., for this year’s National March for Life. The group members wore matching blue beanies with the words “Rosary PRO-LIFE.”
The American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ), representing the parents of some of the students involved, alleges that the museum staff mocked the students, shouted expletives, and claimed the museum was a “neutral zone” where political or religious messages were not allowed.
The first amendment protects our right to free speech without government interference. The Smithsonian is a federal entity that receives nearly $1 billion annually from the government. Perhaps the museum staff were ignorant of that fact... or they are so afraid of the truth they will go out of their way to rid it from their presence?
Hatred of truth is rapidly spreading around America with no sign of letting up any time soon. This rise of hated for truth in our country continues to be fueled by the mainstream news media, Hollywood celebrities, mass-market magazines, entertainers, politicians, social media influencers, and even some pro-abortion “Christian” churches that intend to deceive and manipulate people.
But it goes even deeper than that…
People who hate the truth do so because they hate God. They love themselves more than they love God and others. People who hate the truth want to be little “gods” themselves. They want to do what they want, when they want, to whomever they want, and to do it without restraint. When it comes to God’s laws and morality, many people want to decide for themselves what is right and wrong.
They refuse to believe that God has authority over their lives...
But sadly, belief in absolute truth has come to be seen by many as the ultimate sin of intolerance. In their minds, if there is no absolute truth, there is no absolute standard of right and wrong. Why? Because they do not want to be accountable to anyone, much less God, for their actions.
These days, not only do many people not want the truth, but they will denigrate anyone who attempts to tell them the truth. Truth is hate speech to those who hate the truth. Hating the truth long enough can cause one’s conscience to become misinformed and their heart to be hardened...
For the heart of this people has become dull, with their ears they scarcely hear, and they have closed their eyes, otherwise, they would see with their eyes, hear with their ears, and understand with their heart and return, and I would heal them. (Matthew 13:15)
