Today's wimp Christians told to "SHUT UP AND TAKE IT!"

Heard something galactically outrageous on the radio on the way into the office this morning. Some Christian station had a brief public service message, apparently it's a daily blurb about Christians and the law. This one started out talking about why Christians need to "foster good relationships" with local, state and federal government. And do you know why it was saying this? Because, the announcer said, ever since this past summer's Kelo decision in the Supreme Court, governments can seize private property - including land that church buildings sit on - and give it over to someone else for private development. So it's up to churches to "behave" themselves lest they risk government coming in and taking their property away.

Did you hear that: THESE $*%@-ING LILY-LIVERED "CHRISTIANS" ON THE RADIO ARE TELLING THEIR FELLOW BELIEVERS TO LET GOVERNMENT RUN ALL OVER THEM!

Where is the old blood that once coursed through the veins of the American Christian? The spirit that cast off the shackles of overseas tyranny and our own ignorance? Why, it is in the very nature of the Christian to stand in defiance of government, if that government is in the wrong. We are accountable to God, after all... and not the state. And now these "Christians" are telling us that we should allow government to have such oversight of our property not only without protest, but with meek surrender?

Last night I asked if America deserves to persevere any longer. When this kind of crap is what it means to be a "good follower of Jesus Christ", then the answer to that question is a fully qualified "No!" Maybe America should collapse, and let a stronger, more noble breed of citizenry rise from the ashes... because idiots who think we should cower in fear over government like this are NOT the kind of posterity that the Founders wanted to entrust this nation to.
