Supreme Court Unanimously Rules in Favor of Woman Who Was Told to Stop Praying in Her Own Home

Published

This is a significant Supreme Court victory, but mostly, because it is absolutely crazy that it ever had to make it on their docket in the first place.

That’s right: a lower court had previously ruled that a woman did not have a Constitutional right to pray in her own home.

Trending: As If The Matt Gaetz Case Couldn’t Get Any Weirder…

The case, Sause v. Bauer, centers on Mary Anne Sause, a devout Catholic who was playing her radio in her home when, according to her attorneys, police were called to investigate “a minor noise complaint.”

Sause says the cops harassed her and threatened to take her to jail when she asked why she would be arrested. Sause says that’s when things escalated.

According to The Christian Post, when the retired nurse asked the officers for permission to pray silently, the officers allowed it and then ordered her to stop praying.

Sause later sued the officers, but their command was upheld by the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals.

NBC reports that the courts sided with the officers, ruling that although “the conduct of the officers was unprofessional, there was no court decision finding a First Amendment violation based on facts like those in her case.”

The lower court went on to say that the officers did not violate her First Amendment rights despite Sause’s testimony that when she showed them a copy of the Constitution, “One officer laughed and said, ‘That’s just a piece of paper’ and, ‘That doesn’t work here,'” The Christian Post reported.

It is certainly outrageous that the police officers would tell the woman to stop praying–when she was praying silently. 

But what is far beyond outrageous is that a Circuit Court upheld that the officers had a right to do tell her to stop praying. Have we really gotten this far removed from the Constitution?

Fortunately, Sause did not take this sitting down, and brought her case before the Supreme Court which ruled in her favor.

This is exactly why it is such a victory not just for conservatives, but for the very spirit of our founding documents, that Trump can now appoint another originalist to the court.

It should not be a rare and radical thing to interpret the Constitution as the Founding Fathers did. Our nation was supremely unique at the time the Constitution was written precisely because it acknowledged the right of the people to have a free press and to worship as they chose. Over time, leftists have begun to interpret the First Amendment as something meant to protect the government from religion–but in reality, it’s meant to protect religion from the government.

It never should have gotten to the point where any court would uphold an officer’s right to instruct a citizen to stop praying silently. Let’s hope this SCOTUS ruling is a good indicator that times are changing for the better.

The Systemic Antisemitism Of the Woke Culture and Modern Leftism

They claim to be fighting against hatred, but truth is there is systemic antisemitism of woke and cancel culture which media doesn’t report.

The far left has been injecting Antisemitism into the American political discourse since the early 1970s when leftist African American leaders such as Jesse Jackson, Andrew Young, Louis Farrakhan, and the beloved bigot, Al Sharpton, all went public with their Antisemitism. One would think that in today’s times of wokeism and cancel culture, the Jew-haters of the left would be exposed, shamed, and weeded out of the leftist movements. However, the opposite is happening. antisemitism of woke culture According to Melissa Langsam Braunstein of the National Examiner, fighting Antisemitism can get you canceled. Woke theology teaches that Jews are privileged oppressors. So, when Jews are literally assaulted on the streets by the Left’s political allies, the incidents become Rorschach tests. Many view Jews as victims, but the woke prefer to intimate that Jews must be the aggressors. As a general rule, leftists don’t blame victims unless they’re Jewish. One thing you may have noticed with the rise of Anti-Semitic attacks in the U.S. concurrent with the recent Israel-Hamas war is that Antisemitism is that in most cases liberals didn’t criticize anti-Semitic attacks without mentioning Islamophobia despite the fact that there was no actual link between the two. But that’s not totally new. In 2019 when some Democrats wanted to rebuke Rep. Omar for her Antisemitism, the Congressional Black Caucus blocked the resolution because it didn’t mention Islamophobia. Instead, they passed a generic resolution that basically said that being mean to others is bad. Really? I learned that lesson when I was a child watching programs such as Romper Room, Howdy Doody, and Captain Kangaroo. As for the Jew-hating Rep Omar, she not only voted for the measure but celebrated it as a step toward fighting Islamophobia. At the end of June 2021, “April Powers, previously Chief Equity and Inclusion Officer…

How to Keep Your Kids From Becoming Liberal

here is beauty and goodness in a community of like-minded families.

Socialism, atheism, hyper-sexualism, wokeism, and the belief that America is evil is now the norm in government schools. I saw this coming years ago before my wife and I started our family which led us to homeschool our children. But we quickly learned that simply schooling at home was not enough. Please read the following message from my wife. It could save your family a lot of heartache, like it saved ours. Brandon Vallorani, Founder of Flag and Cross and Thrasher Coffee I began homeschooling in 2000, when my oldest daughter turned 4 years old. Armed with my bachelor’€™s degree in education and a lifelong desire to teach, I felt confident in my abilities. By 2012, our dream of a full house came true. We now had 7 children ages 16 years old down to newborn. Life was crazy but good. In the midst of raising an infant, toddlers, and teenagers, I had begun to notice some serious learning struggles with one of our children. Over the next two years, I sought help anywhere I could turn. Desperately trying to fix our problems, I scheduled appointments for testing with child psychologists and made numerous changes to our homeschool routine. Countless hours were spent in prayer. Nothing was working. I was overwhelmed and on the verge of quitting completely. And then I attended an informational meeting about Classical Conversations. Immediately inspired, my plan was to save€ the youngest members of our family by joining a Classical Conversations Community. I had been homeschooling for 14 years without a support system, and we all needed friends to stand in the gap. At this informational meeting, I learned about Classical Christian education: grammar, dialectic, and rhetorical stages. I saw a Director light up as she described the beauty of the program. They spoke about…
