In case it concerns you, the framers of the U.S. Constitution certainly anticipated violently overthrowing an out-of-control, lawless, so-called government; therefore, the current so-called U.S. government doesn't have constitutional justification against violent revolutionaries unless that claimed government cleans up its act and soon. The U.S. Constitution is based upon the revolutionary understanding set out in the U.S. Declaration of Independence.
Jeremiah 22:16-17 KJVR He judged the cause of the poor and needy; then it was well with him: was not this to know me? saith the LORD. (17) But thine eyes and thine heart are not but for thy covetousness, and for to shed innocent blood, and for oppression, and for violence, to do it.
The current so-called government of the United States of America is an illegitimate and illegal conspiracy that has fraudulently stripped the common and poor and needy people. It is a greedy entity; a lying entity; a violent, imperial leeching-octopus upon the world. It sheds innocent blood so it can come to oppress and often for the sake of bloodthirstiness. In utter futility, it seeks to cover evil from the light of truth. Those are but a few of its huge crimes concerning which it has so far refused to repent. Prophecy has it that it will not repent but fall. However, there is the word "if."
Unfortunately, the Zealots arrayed against it in the form of would-be violent revolutionaries do not have the poor and needy as its cause but rather more selfish interests.
Hence, neither the so-called government nor the would-be violent revolutionaries in the main have even the interests of King David, who was interested in justice for the poor and needy; however, look at what became of David's worldly kingdom. What makes anyone think that any thing less than David's outlook will prevail or is the best path or right direction?
Many people would have begun such a violent revolution long ago, but they are not willing to start without thinking they clearly sense an imminent groundswell of support. It would be a continuation of the original revolution against the Crown. The current so-called government is nearly of the opposite mentality of that original revolution. The current so-called government is acting much as that Crown, ostensibly overthrown for just cause. The current so-called government is vastly more akin to that Crown that was overthrown in the English colonies in America by Americans.
Regardless, non-violence and anti-property destruction is non-secular with me. I am not a secularist. I do not advocate the violent overthrow of anyone. I advocate bad governors repenting and stepping down if need be (change of heart). It's not my intention to get between a violent, out-of-control, lawless government and violent revolutionaries against it.
I'd maintain my position that neither would be right (although there are lesser of evils in the world), but I'm not coercive. I would not condone either side. I would say they all should stop, but I wouldn't attempt to force them in the mundane sense. I'd leave that to the spirit.
Choices: Peacefully and permanently separate them for everyone's sake, or bring down the wrath and burn them to a crisp.
I don't call down the wrath, but I know Satan is unleashed on account of human iniquity. Who deserves what and why and when and how it all plays out for every soul are things that are closed or hidden for the time being.
People disrespect the Bible, but it says "outer darkness," the "bottomless pit," and the "lake of fire," etc. Likewise, Heaven varies from "the garden," to a "mansion," to a cube, to "rapture" in the sky, etc. The allegorical mixed in with the literal, metaphysical happenings drives many people crazier. It's not my fault that so many people can't handle my spirituality.
Peace and love, giving and sharing all, and sexual harmlessness at the very least,

The following should appear at the end of every post:
According to the IRS, "Know the law: Avoid political campaign intervention":
Tax-exempt section 501(c)(3) organizations like churches, universities, and hospitals must follow the law regarding political campaigns. Unfortunately, some don't know the law.
Under the Internal Revenue Code, all section 501(c)(3) organizations are prohibited from participating in any political campaign on behalf of (or in opposition to) any candidate for elective public office. The prohibition applies to campaigns at the federal, state and local level.
Violation of this prohibition may result in denial or revocation of tax-exempt status and the imposition of certain excise taxes. Section 501(c)(3) private foundations are subject to additional restrictions.
Political Campaign Intervention
Political campaign intervention includes any activities that favor or oppose one or more candidates for public office. The prohibition extends beyond candidate endorsements.
Contributions to political campaign funds, public statements of support or opposition (verbal or written) made by or on behalf of an organization, and the distribution of materials prepared by others that support or oppose any candidate for public office all violate the prohibition on political campaign intervention.
Factors in determining whether a communication results in political campaign intervention include the following:
- Whether the statement identifies one or more candidates for a given public office
- Whether the statement expresses approval or disapproval of one or more candidates' positions and/or actions
- Whether the statement is delivered close in time to the election
- Whether the statement makes reference to voting or an election
- Whether the issue addressed distinguishes candidates for a given office
Many religious organizations believe, as we do, that the above constitutes a violation of the First Amendment of the US Constitution.
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
That said, we make the following absolutely clear here:
- The Real Liberal Christian Church and Christian Commons Project not only do not endorse any candidate for any secular office, we say that Christianity forbids voting in such elections.
- Furthermore, when we discuss any public-office holder's position, policy, action or inaction, we definitely are not encouraging anyone to vote for that office holder's position.
- We are not trying to influence secular elections but rather want people to come out from that entire fallen system.
- When we analyze or discuss what is termed "public policy," we do it entirely from a theological standpoint with an eye to educating professing Christians and those to whom we are openly always proselytizing to convert to authentic Christianity.
- It is impossible for us to fully evangelize and proselytize without directly discussing the pros and cons of public policy and the positions of secular-office holders, hence the unconstitutionality of the IRS code on the matter.
- We are not rich and wouldn't be looking for a fight regardless. What we cannot do is compromise our faith (which seeks to harm nobody, quite the contrary).
- We render unto Caesar what is Caesar's. We render unto God what is God's.
- When Caesar says to us that unless we shut up about the unrighteousness of Caesar's policies and practices, we will lose the ability of people who donate to us to declare their donations as deductions on their federal and state income-tax returns, we say to Caesar that we cannot shut up while exercising our religion in a very reasonable way.
- We consider the IRS code on this matter as deliberate economic duress (a form of coercion) and a direct attempt by the federal government to censor dissenting, free political and religious speech.
- It's not freedom of religion if they tax it.
And when they were come to Capernaum, they that received tribute money came to Peter, and said, Doth not your master pay tribute? He saith, Yes. And when he was come into the house, Jesus prevented him, saying, What thinkest thou, Simon? of whom do the kings of the earth take custom or tribute? of their own children, or of strangers? Peter saith unto him, Of strangers. Jesus saith unto him, Then are the children free. (Matthew 17:24-26)
