Please understand that when it comes to “Civil Rights” or, as the Liberals, Progressives, and their minority tenants more and more want to call them, “Civil Liberties,” all Americans must remember that, if your White, Christian, and/or Heterosexual – i.e., part of what is the norm – those aren’t for you. “Civil Rights” weren’t created, developed, and promulgated for your protection; they are solely meant for the benefit of minorities, more often than not at your expense. They are a sword aimed you, not a shield for your protection.
The lone exception to this is that, going by the slant of media coverage and the prevalence and results of lawsuits of federal investigations, “Civil Rights” are a sword in the hands of any womyn who chooses to attack a Straight, White man with it. Whether or not this is also true of attacks against non-White and/or Queer males is unknown but doubtful.
This means that supporting “Civil Rights” is directly contrary to the interests of the normal or normative American. That being the case, whether or not any individual still decides to support “Civil Rights” is a matter of moral choice – charity is, after all, always contrary to one’s self interests yet is a good act.
It’s a sick, evil thing when faith and the casual expression thereof becomes an actionable offense. Yet this is becoming more and more the case, at least when that faith and its expression are of the normative, Christian variety.
According to U.S. Bank in Walton, KY being a Christian and not hiding the light of your faith under a bushel of political correctness and silence is an Ethics Violation and cause for termination.
It does not bode well for America’s future that we, as a people, have allowed this sort of persecution of America’s religion to be considered acceptable in any way shape or form.
A former Northern Kentucky bank teller claims she was fired from her job for telling customer to “Have a blessed day.”
“I say ‘have a blessed day’ all of the time,” says Polly Neace. “I don’t think there’s any better kind of day you can have than a blessed day.”
Neace filed a lawsuit against U.S. Bank claiming she was discriminated against for her religious beliefs.
Neace clams after years of saying “Have a blessed day” to customers, she was reprimanded in March 2011.
In a Code of Ethics violation, US Bank states several customers complained when Neace said, “Have a blessed day.”
That Code of Ethics Violation warns Neace that “effective immediately you will no longer discuss the subject of faith or religion with customers and co-workers alike.”
“I was upset with the fact they were stifling me and not allowing me to act on my beliefs,” Neace says.
Neace admits she was reprimanded again a few months later.
“A customer went through the drive thru and I waited on them. She said, ‘God bless you.’ I said, ‘Thank you, God bless you too,” says Neace.
And then, after complaining about a situation at the bank, Neace claims she jokingly told a manager she might as well go back to saying, “Have a blessed day” and be fired.
The next day, Neace was fired.
In many ways this is far, far worse than A&E’s short-lived assault upon Duck Dynasty’s Phil Robertson. They were just kowtowing to a segment of what they thought were their audience whereas U.S. Bank has instituted a policy by which to persecute Christians.
Polly Neace – An American Martyr
Do not mistake me. Neace did also, according to the Ethics Violation, reprimand a bank customer for blaspheming and talk to that customer about salvation, and that seems to be solid grounds for a reprimand. However, the rest of what led to her termination is nothing but religious persecution and bigotry.
Be absolutely assured that, if Nease was a Muslim and interjected Islamic phrases into normal conversation as is their wont, things would be quite different. The bank would dare reprimand or terminate a Muslim for being a Muslim because that would violate their “Civil Rights.” Indeed, if a Muslim employee chastised a customer for blaspheming Allah, it would be the customer that the bank would declare to be in the wrong.
It’s a sad time when being a Christian becomes an ethics violation. It’s fairly worrisome for me as well because I’m not Christian and, if America’s enemies can successfully persecute the Christian majority, me and mine, mere statistical outliers, are very much at risk.
“God Bless Elections!” is exactly what the Romeike family should be proclaiming unto the Heavens because it was solely the fact that the Obama Regime fears the upcoming midterm elections that has allowed the stay in America.
The Happy Romeike Family
The Romeikes are devout Christians from Germany who wanted to homeschool their children because of what they perceived as the secularist agenda in German public schools. This is illegal is Germany and the parents faced both persecution and possible prosecution by the German authorities.
In 2008, after enduring two years of ever-increasing persecution and threats by the German government, they fled to America where they applied for asylum after settling in Tennessee. In 2010 Immigration Judge Lawrence O. Burman granted this request for asylum. This should have been the happy end of it. It wasn’t.
Obama’s and Holders’ Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) almost immediately appealed Judge Burman’s decision and got their appeal on docket of the 6th Circuit Court of Appeals in California, who were quick to over the immigration judges grant of asylum to the Romeike family.
Finally, in 2014 the US Supreme Court refused to hear Romeiki’s further appeal. Legally this doomed the family to deportation and the likely destruction of their family as a unit upon their return to Germany. In theory this should have been the sad end of it. It wasn’t.
The whole case made the national news and the public outcry over the Obama Regime’s behavior was fairly intense – to intense for Obama and other Democrats in a midterm election year, especially one where they’re weakened by the failure of ObamaCare and the retirement of many of the politicians. Hence, they granted the Romeike family â€œindefinite deferred status,â€ which will allow them to stay in the US.
One need only watch the viciousness and pageantry of their assaults upon anyone, especially any “celebrity” or public figure who does not maintain and spout their dogma about the special state of “grace” of: queers, abortion, women’s proper place in society, and/or the specially protected minority groups in order to see this as being cold, hard fact. These Leftists do not tolerate such heresies and are both quick and strident in their calls for their victim to profess his or her faith and failing before they destroy them as utterly as they are capable of doing.
If the above isn’t enough to prove that the Politically Correct Liberals’ and Progressives’ conduct the inquisition against heretics, look at how they respond to any Black that commits apostasy and actually speaks out for America and against the failures and destructive behaviors of the “Black Community.” And, as well, look at how they encourage the “Faithful” Blacks to treat these apostates.
