I don’t know when this happened exactly, but I have noticed it over the years. Here is part of an article that I read and I had to share it with you.
“So this is where we are:
Military Chaplains are being reprimanded for speaking explicitly about Jesus and the Bible.
Christians are sued when they attempt to live out their Biblical based values.
The President scolds Christians for not “celebrating” perverse lifestyle choices which contradict scripture.
A Fire Chief was suspended merely because a book he wrote espoused biblical values.
And a motivational speaker is fired for mentioning Jesus in a combating stress speech to High School students in Texas.
How is it that America, founded on Judeo-Christian values, is suddenly, for all intents and purposes, adverse to those biblical values? How have we come to this place in history where America, many of whose founders claimed a personal relationship in Jesus Christ, is actively silencing citizens who would do the same?
And, in the words of my friend, Duane Patterson, when was “the right to not be offended” in the Bill of Rights?
President John Adams said:
Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.
Senator Daniel Webster noted:

We have allowed this because we have “turned the other cheek” too much. Over the past fifty or so years, we have allowed the government and our elected officials to chip away at our rights as Americans a little bit at a time. Now, we are beginning to notice, but it may be too late. We can’t change it without radical change happening and I am not sure that America and its people are ready for that.
Truly, America isn’t ready for that kind of change. Our country has moved in this direction for so long, it would take an intervention from God Himself to get us back on the right track again.
