When do we worry?

22 American Christians were arrested Saturday for kneeling and praying in front of the White House.  They were told that that particular area is a “restricted area” for free speech.   Apparantly also a “restricted area”  for practicing religion (ie “the free exercise thereof”)

The Constitution no longer applies to THAT particular part of American public property.  And here I thought that the Constitution was supposed to apply most specifically and most importantly to the federal government and its employees and to serve as a limit to their usurpation of power.  Silly me.

Wonder how big the government can make the parts of America where the Constitution  no longer applies before people start to get alarmed?

    drrik,
    I know for one, I am worried sick about what is going on. We should be able to say a prayer anywhere in this country. A similar incident happened (can’t recall when) where there were boy scouts at one of the monuments who said a prayer inside of it and were told they can’t say a prayer on that site.
    Things are getting truly out of hand and I guess if we Christians don’t fight back, we have only ourselves to blame.
    I also saw a group of elderly women being hauled off in a police van simply because they were holding some kind of meeting near another monument and I think they also had said prayers. I could not believe my eyes at these poor elderly women being shoved into police vans.

    So much easier for the folks there trying to do their thing if the whole of DC was a Constitution-free zone.

    Not long, its here now. I was thinking the same thing that inside the White House is a Constitution-free zone.
