I came across an interesting article today about Bloomington. It claims Bloomington, not Bloomington-Normal or McLean County, is in the top 10 small cities for educated millenials. With 2 colleges and a major employer like State Farm, it probably is. (Even if State Farm is moving jobs out).
The article notes 40 parks, 3 golf courses, the Zoo, and Constitution Trail. It also mentions a population of 175,000 in the metro area. I wonder where all those people are hiding!
One thing is much more interesting. Now click on this link and page down to Bloomington – #7 http://www.businessinsider.com/the-best-small-cities-for-recent-college-graduates-2015-5
They included a picture of the History Museum downtown. Look closer at the picture. I really hope somebody photo-shopped it. Downtown Bloomington is rarely on my itinerary, so I won’t be heading down to see for myself.
On the retaining wall 2 phrases are visible: Freedom of Speech and Freedom of Worship
Would somebody in the area please see if that is what the wall REALLY says?
Think the 1st Amendment isn’t under attack? WORSHIP is no where in it:
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof;
Why would the word Worship be exchanged for Religion?
That one is easy. It’s impossible to fundamentally transform a country who believes in a God other than government. Therefore, go worship your God in your church and keep him there. The moral teachings of the Bible have no place in the public arena. Euthanasia, abortion, gay marriage, drug legalization, pre-K to college indoctrination through common core, etc are much more difficult if the population believes One nation, Under God. Therefore, re-write the Bill of Rights. Take God out of it. Separation of church and State, even though it is no where in the Constitution or the Bill of Rights.
Christianity in American, according to a recent poll, has declined almost 10%. When churches re-write doctrine to fit today, it’s not surprising. If they don’t stand for life and morality, or worse promote redistribution of wealth (social justice), why would their members want to be Christian? Churches who fall for whatever is currently “in” stand for nothing.
For those who do understand that your RIGHT to your faith is under attack, what are you going to do about it? If the Museum wall really says Worship, what are you going to do about it? If the article changed the picture, what are you going to do about it?
If you are going to be a nice little sheep and stay quiet, fine. That’s exactly what they want you to do.
Send me a pic of the real wall please: [email protected]
