can this happen

Tuesday’s article about Mercy Unlimited and The West Ohio Food Bank points out two disturbing facts. First, any expression of Christian faith is unwelcome by our federal government. Since the Food Bank receives food from the feds it is required to censor the sincere, heartfelt concerns that Mercy Unlimited shares for the spiritual welfare of its clients.

Mr. Bright owes it to the community to share with us just how many “repeated violations” involved sharing the Gospel and praying with clients. I really doubt that people were coerced into listening . Many of us in this area have experienced this antagonism to our faith, usually from employers who tolerate all kinds of unethical behavior from some employees but seek out Christians to censor when problems arise. Secondly, we now have (again) a President who made sure that a Muslim terrorist received a burial according to his religious beliefs, but will deny Christians the right to express themselves in our own country. As it was put years ago, sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ can be likened to one beggar telling another beggar where to find bread. The operative word here is sharing.
