Into The Blaze

Glenn Beck, and his staff, have recently started a website called, “The Blaze” which is set up “to post, report and analyze stories of interest on a wide range of topics from politics and culture to faith and family.”

On the site was a story about “BIKINI-CLAD STRIPPERS PROTEST CHURCH IN RURAL OHIO”. Of course I could not pass up reading this one, and once inside the story, and after reading the various replies, I just had to sign up and leave my own comments. Following was my reply which was mainly directed at the other responders more then the actual story.

As a people we are only truly free when we have the freedom to do the things we'd like to do without abuse from others. The same freedom that provides protection for the religious folks in this country to gather and sing praises to whatever they believe, is the exact same freedom the strippers should enjoy.

I served over twenty years in the military to defend this freedom for ALL Americans, and I really get annoyed when religious people think that they are somehow superior to everyone else.

You are free to worship any way you'd like. When you decide to rise up out of your place of worship and start forcing your beliefs on others, this is where you need to take a serious look inside yourselves. You do not tolerate others encroaching on your right to worship, so I would love for one of you to explain why it is acceptable for you to go after those who do not believe the same things as you.


UPDATE: Here's a video of the next phase of the situation...
