Donald Trump can impose a temporary ban on seven Muslim majority nations that house fewer than 10% of the world’s Muslims and liberals will freak out that he’s “discriminating against Muslims,” and “violating religious freedom.”
If only liberals were as concerned about the religious liberty of Christians as they are about Muslims. But alas, Christians aren’t a minority group in America (and liberals tend to see the world in terms of the “oppressors” and the “oppressed”), so they don’t care much when their religious freedom is violated.
The “Freedom From Religion Foundation” (FFRF) recently threatened a predominantly Christian town in Mississippi with a mere 300 residents with a $500,000 lawsuit if they don’t remove a Christian flag from the Veterans Memorial Park. A bit overkill, don’t you think?
The citizens there weren’t ready to fork over $1,600 per citizen, and weren’t going to sacrifice their religious freedom, either.
More than 100 residents of a predominantly Christian town in Mississippi took part in a rally on Saturday where they temporarily rehung a Christian flag at a local park after being threatened with a lawsuit by the FFRF.
Rienzi Mayor Walter Williams initially decided to take the flag down for the time being.
“I never dreamed that something like this would have happened in a town this small, but it happened,” Rienzi told WREG.
The town’s residents were unhappy with Rienzi’s decision and Kevin Nelms organized a rally to protest the move.
“There just comes a point in time when you’ve got to be politically incorrect and take a stand,” Nelms told WREG. “We’re not gonna let other people, or a foundation or anybody else up in Wisconsin tell us that we can’t fly our flag … you’re gonna take one down, we’re gonna put a hundred back up.”
The Saturday event kicked off with a 12-mile ride from the Veterans of Foreign Wars of the U.S. facility in Corinth, Miss., to the Veterans Memorial Park in Rienzi. Many of the participants were motorcyclists and bore Christian flags on the backs of their bikes.

FFRF claims to be fighting for the purpose of the separation of church and state – how was that town violating that by hanging a flag, using no tax funds to do so, in a town where everyone is a Christian? If this entire situation was identical but it were a Muslim community flying a Muslim flag, liberals would be crying “Islamophobia” to anyone who dared to take it down.
FFRF’s true goal hardly appears to be the separation of church and state – but rather the destruction of the church. Good on the Christians who stood up to them.
Share this if you feel every Christian deserves to express their faith!
