'The Federal Government continued its fight against Christians recently as they worked to stop Missouri Christians from baptizing in "public" waters. The National Park Service recently began requiring churches to obtain special use permits in order to baptize converts in public waters. The National Park Service (NPS) also began requiring these churches that wanted to baptize to give the NPS notice of their plans forty-eight hours in advance. To make sure that they churches didn’t try and skirt the rules the NPS even brought in boulders and large rocks to place along the path so that the churches couldn’t drive up their elderly congregants to observe the baptisms. Thankfully, Missouri Congressman Rep. Jason Smith stepped in and provided the necessary support to get the NPS to back down and rescind their policies.  

In Olympia, Washington a church was denied a permit to have their baptisms in Heritage parks. The Attorney General said that partaking in a religious sacrament on public property was a violation of the state constitution.

As Christian congregations are being marginalized, the federal government is teaming up with smaller public entities to accommodate the views and beliefs of American Muslims. Universities across the country have spent thousands of dollars installing foot baths for Muslim student to use before their daily prayers. The University of Michigan spent $25,000 to install these foot baths on their Dearborn, MI campus.

Airports across the nation have provided foot washing basins to Islamic taxi drivers, with one airport even providing prayer rugs! In San Francisco’s International Airport officials used tax dollars to build a place of worship for their Muslim employees.'  Todd Starnes, Fox News

Evidently, separation of church and state applies only to Christians and Christian organizations.

  1. The pandering to Islam is out of fear. They know there is no need to fear Christians. Islam is conquering the world and everyone is too afraid to say no.
