Criminalizing Religious Insults
News from Russia today (literally today), is that they are making moves to criminalize religious insults. "Insulting the feelings of religious believers could be punishable by a fine of $10,000 and 3 years in prison; insulting churches, mosques or synagogues would carry a higher fine and a 5 year prison sentence." Think about it - a country that once (not very long ago) had no tolerance for any religion, will now throw you in jail for insulting a religion. It's pure genius - on satan's part!
That snake is clever. At first glance it sounds pretty good - doesn't it? Stop all those insults and bad art mocking Christ. Yet, insulting a religion put Jesus on the cross 2,000 years ago (of course He permitted it to happen, He went there on His own, for us). If these laws in Russia make there way across Europe, they will have to tear down the statues on the Charles Bridge in Prague (above). Why, because these images of Christ and His disciples are an insult to other religions, are they not? The idea that He could die for the sins of all people, to save them and unite them to God - is certainly an insult to Islam and others.
They need to go. And take that cross off your neck - it needs to go too - it's insulting......
Europe? How about America? We're already there. I'm telling you, that snake is a genius - very impressive, cloaked in such beautiful clothing and such fine words - pure genius.
