  1. Hmmmm…so I thought the U.S. Constitution’s 1st Amendment covered “freedom of religion” over 200 years ago?

    Soooo…if the freedom-stealing thugs in Mordor-on-the-Potomac (D.C.) don’t respect the U.S. Constitution’s Bill of Rights codification of our natural rights given by God above, what makes the Tejas Legislature think that the D.C. aristocrats and bureaucrats will respect Texas state law, specifically the “Pastor Protection Act”?

    And when our D.C. plantation masters send their badged jackboots and/or their military to enforce their new totalitarian edicts that violate the Constitution’s “Freedom of Religion” provision and Texas’ “Pastor Protection Act”, who will have the backbone and/or the wherewithal to resist D.C.’s armed coercions?

    Oh…we are Texas. We have lots and lots of gun-owning citizens who will stand up to the Beast. Well, sure we will. Look at the bloody battle we gave them to protect the Bill of Rights to the U.S. Constitution that D.C. so willingly tramples at will now with such Orwellian legislation as the (un)Patriot Act.

    For those who think that the mere presence of nice, sophisticated weapons is sufficient to deter aggressive and murderous psychopaths without the resolve to utilize said weapons under circumstances of proper provocation, it’s not working out too well for the Iraqi military when ISIS attacks and the Iraqi soldiers flee en masse leaving piles of their state-of-the-art weaponry for ISIS.

    We’ll know when the Texas Legislature and the Governor is serious about protecting our God-given rights when they take concrete steps towards re-establishing the organized State of Texas militia…and not a toothless group of parade-ground Boy Scouts…but, a well-regulated (as in trained and trained and mo’ trained) military force equipped with “every terrible implement of the soldier”.

    We also have the unorganized Texas militia, consisting of every able-bodied man and woman in the state…but, that hasn’t worked out so well to date in stopping the serious denigration of our once-sacred civil rights for which our Forefathers bled and died on the field of battle.

    “The power of the sword, say the minority…, is in the hands of Congress. My friends and countrymen, it is not so, for The powers of the sword are in the hands of the yeomanry of America from sixteen to sixty. The militia of these free commonwealths, entitled and accustomed to their arms, when compared with any possible army, must be tremendous and irresistible. Who are the militia? Are they not ourselves? Is it feared, then, that we shall turn our arms each man against his own bosom. Congress has no power to disarm the militia. Their swords and every terrible implement of the soldier are the birthright of Americans. The unlimited power of the sword is not in the hands of either the federal or state governments but where, I trust in God, it will always remain, in the hands of the people.”
