Is this a feasible scenario?

You don't have to be a news expert to see that our country is changing for the worse. More and more, our rights as Christians are being taken away, and it's quite clear that our once-great nation is turning away from God.

I think we are in the End Days. And soon (maybe even in our generation) we will see our government attempt to push God away completely. I foresee the day when Bibles will be banned from both public arenas and in the home.

How?

Here is a scenario I've been thinking about: As muslim nutcases continue to launch attacks on our soil, I think more and more people will become fearful for their safety. I can see a time in the future that our government will ban all religious practices in the U.S. They will never ban just islam, as that would be considered discriminatory. Instead, government will ban all religion - and the general public will support this. Government will proclaim that religion is equal to "hate speech" and, for the safety of our country, should be disallowed.

Thoughts?

There is no doubt that the leftists would like to impose your scenario. But, our written Constitution, with its Bill Of Rights will stand in their way. True, they have and will continue to nibble away at our rights, using courts and zoning laws, and other restrictions, not to mention social pressure. But, to accomplish their complete agenda, they would have to amend The Constitution, and that is unlikely anytime soon if at all.

Hi Jasmine.  I doubt they will ban Bibles, most people simply don't care to read it, or twist and pervert it to say what they wish.
I'm not saying your scenario is impossible.  I'm sure if given the power, these neo-Socialists wouldn't hesitate to ban Christianity.
I do believe the thumbscrews will be squeezed tighter and tighter for Christians.

Thank you for the responses!

I just think our country is straying so far from the nation we used to be. I hope I am wrong in my scenario, but in my opinion this is the direction we are heading on.

God judges people and also nations.. We see Romans 1 being fulfilled right before our eyes.  The West has had it's share of violence and sin through the ages, but the Christian worldview has helped limit and restrain it.. Now that Western man is boldly denying the Christian worldview and mocking belief in God and the scriptures God is giving them over to a reprobate mind.  Thinking themselves wise they become fools..

That's why it's imperative that we keep liberals out to the WH. Once the SC goes full progressive the Constitution and Bill of Rights won't matter anymore.

Wouldn't it be better if you all just grew up a bit and stopped having superstition as a central part of your lives?

You know Limey I hear this a lot.  Superstition.  If that was all that being religious meant, then I would have to agree with you.  However, to most, it is much more than that.

Now if you choose to believe that your existence is means nothing more than the existence of a flu virus, then so be it.  However you have to admit that this is nothing more than a belief.  That's right it is really the same thing that you call superstition.  You believe that your being is no different than an organism that is barely considered alive. You have NO proof of that believe.

You see this goes back to the old science versus religion argument that really should be no argument at all.  They are NOT mutually exclusive of one another.  They have both however done a great job to present themselves as the end all and be all of explaining things and have both been guilty of persecuting the other.

Science can only explain the how of the universe.  How do stars work?  How do atoms create molecules?  How do black holes form?

Religion, to those of us that believe, explains the why.  Why does man have an ability to think of more than just his/her being?  While other animals can at times show certain "human" traits, none of them do so with the consistency and force of mankind.

In the end I believe that all humans seek comfort in their lives.  I also believe that non-believers get that comfort in their insistence that God cannot and needs not exist.  The comforting part is that without God you have no reason to worry about your general lot and part in life.  Without God the only morality that is relevant in your life is that which keeps you out of jail.  Other than that I can see how a belief in nothing greater would be comforting to those who believe that morality is purely a societal function.  Since you have convinced yourself there is nothing but non-existence possible after death in this life, you really have nothing to live for and no reason to make the really tough moral choices.

So you can call my belief a superstition as long as you understand that yours is too.  You can go on hoping and having faith that you are but a parasite on the surface of this planet and one day you will cease to exist.  That is your God given ability.  I choose instead to have faith, trust and believe that there is more to come. I am a Child of God and therefore infinitely more important than any virus, single cell animal, stone or monkey.  However I also choose to believe that this faith requires more of me in this life than mere living.

I have to wonder why Jasmine acts as if she'd miss reading the Bible.
  

There are going to be some changes around here.
