Have you ever read alarming an email and thought "Oh, that's probably in CA somewhere?" We'll I had to double-check this one to make sure that it really said our Gov. Tim Kaine of our state, VA, really fired 5 chaplains! Yes, and the crime was praying in Jesus' Name! Saints, we must really be prayerful, and most of all, I pray for the boldness to be like the chaplains!
Also one that is equally threatening to our freedom to preach the Word, is a hate crime legislation that died because of the threat of a Bush veto back in 2007, but now it is resurging as an amendment the to Defense Authorization Act. It has now passed congress, 60-39, according to this article.
Obama challenges McCain on stalled hate crimes bill
Although this bill sounds good on the surface, it has the potential to do as is currently happening in Canada when this Catholic priest taught against homosexuality.

Saints, this was not a protestor on the street. Read this excerpt from the article:
The priest was teaching about homosexual "marriage" and homosexuality from a biblical perspective, and about Catholic doctrine in defense of the church's stance on marriage. "If there's a loss of that kind of religious liberties in Canada, then the church had better sit up and take notice," Sheldon contends.
We are in the last days! How do we know we are in the last days? It is not an earthquake or a nuclear threat as you might think. John tells us that we know becasue those antichrist spirits are already in the earth! Who is an antichrist? He who denies the Father AND the Son!
Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time … Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son. 1 John 2:18, 22
If we say we love God, but we don't love Jesus, then we have a problem. Again John clarifies, every one that loveth Him that begot, loveth Him also that is begotten by Him. We can't deny Jesus in our prayers in an attempt not to offend; this is only a work of the spirit of antichrist in the last days!
