Therefore, this is what the LORD says: You have not obeyed me; you have not proclaimed freedom for your fellow countrymen. So I now proclaim “freedom” for you, declares the LORD — “freedom” to fall by the sword, plague and famine. I will make you abhorrent to all the kingdoms of the earth.
This quote is appropriate for the current time. It’s nearly the 4th of July (2011), a time when the U.S. celebrates “Independence Day,” a proclamation of freedom, the crescendo sentiment expressed in the Declaration of Independence.
It’s also appropriate due to the fact that the U.S. Sentencing Commission voted unanimously to retroactively apply last years long overdue “crack disparity” punishment laws. (Sentencing Project | FAMM) But frankly the law didn’t go far enough, and I nearly choked when I heard it meant that the first prisoners could begin to be released by November. “Yeah, might as well keep them in prison for 4 or 5 more months, what’s the big deal? Why let them out during the warm months when employment prospects are higher than the winter and living on the street is more comfortable? They won’t be able to get a job anyway, what’s the big deal, lots of people can earns some serious overtime by then, and smuggle in some more drugs to them, or make their interest payments on their illegal court charges even higher, I don’t understand why we’re not kicking them even harder while they’re down!”
Let's see, some of Deuteronomy 28 is already coming to pass. Still not living up to our Founding Documents, still getting ready to be cut in to little pieces by their own tongues, still trying to force everyone to worship their Evil Religion of Terrorist Mean-Spirited Fanatical Control-Freak Hate.
Obama, Holder, Califano, Chabot, Fay, Feinstein, Drug Czars Kerlikowski, Bennett, and Walters, and all you ministers who blaspheme God by worshipping the Drug War Tree and Fruit, you are really headed for some serious pain come Judgement Day. All of us at Christians Against Prohibition are praying for you, praying you repent and bear the fruits of repentance, praying that the healing power of God’s Holy Spirit covers you with love and gets in to your hard, hard, heads and hearts. We also pray that you stop proselytizing others to make them twice the children of hell as you.
