Inaugurated ‘Fraudulently’: Supremes to Look Again at 2020 Election Claims, by Bob UnruhFebruary 16, 2023
By Paul Engel, America Out Loud, Feb 16, 2023
Author and speaker Paul Engel has spent more than 20 years studying and teaching about both the Bible and the U.S. Constitution. That experience helps Paul explain difficult concepts in a way most people can understand. …
The word of the day is “Censorship.” Most people seem to focus on the freedom of speech aspect of censorship, but that is only a small part of this particular evil. Censorship is not just about silencing your opponent; it’s about controlling them. It’s about manipulating people, gaslighting them into agreeing with you by preventing them from seeing the other side.
As Proverbs 18:17 states, “The first one to plead his cause seems right… until his neighbor comes and examines him.” And that is exactly what the censors do not want you to do, examine their claims. Like petulant children, holding their breath and stamping their feet, those who wish to prevent you from hearing the other side and examining their claims throw their temper tantrums to get their way. We should see these displays as exactly what they are, proof that those who wish to censor do not believe their statements will hold up to scrutiny.
Unlike the child who wants the cookies or sugary cereal in the grocery store, these “children” want to control your life. They want to decide for you who you should vote for, what medical treatments you should receive, and how you should raise your children.
Much of the other side, however, isn’t much better. They throw their own temper tantrums in an attempt to get their way as well. How about the American people return to being the adults in the room, scold the childish actors, and decide for ourselves how we will live our lives?
