40% of Americans Can't Name Any First Amendement Rights

A recent poll conducted by the University of Pennsylvania finds that residents of the United States are poorly informed about basic constitutional provisions.

According to Penn’s Annenberg Public Policy Center released Tuesday, 37 percent could not name any of the five rights protected by First Amendment, and just about half (48 percent) could name freedom of speech.

Oh really? You don't know much about how this nation was founded do you? The Founding Fathers used the scripture to come up with the constitutional rights. The Bible was the founding document of this nation.

Being a Christian doesn't make one a doormat for people to run over.
Paul stopped a scourging by claiming his rights as a Roman citizen. The Lord Jesus condemned those who smote him contrary to the law. The Jews in Ezra's time gave as evidence for their work being legitimate the decree of the government of Persia via Cyrus, which Darius acknowledged. The Jews in Esther used a decree from the king to justify their defense from those who would destroy them and the entire event was turned around.

What we deserve is what Dave pointed out, but God in His grace has given us civil freedoms to enjoy that some believers will never have in their countries. Those freedoms, in the case of the United States, were acknowledge not to be a gift from the government but an endowment by God.

Seeing that most historians put the writing of the last book of the Bible just shy of the end of the first century and the writing of our Constitution occurred nearly 1700 years later, one would little expect that the subject of "Constitutional rights" would be addressed in Scripture.

"War is peace. Slavery is freedom. Ignorance is strength. "

7th commandment, "All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others."

Another commandment, "No animal shall kill another animal without a cause."

"Who is obsolete? Pastors, librarians, teachers, and humans are obsolete. We must rebuild humans so that they no longer possess their humanity, so that only animals are allowed, humans have rights, animals are ignorant of any rights, therefore rebuild humans into animals, and keep a deadly whip in your hand, that you may peacefully rule them."

when we protect our "rights" we protect human dignity.... when we ignore the fact that our neighbor was created in the image of God, thereby have a right to life, then it is easy to turn a blind eye when they are taken away captive.

False dichotomy. Christians are live in the world, but not as the world. Which includes fighting for fleeting "rights". It's biblical to follow the law of man lest it contradicts God direct command. Sitting on ones hand is the reason why you have lost your precious rights. Not because a lack of enforcement, but because the church is weak, fat, and worldly. It's a collective act of Esau, giving up life for Christ for the soup of the world. Look in the mirror, then the Word, not the Constitution for your answer.

Most people who lose their freedom lose it because they thought it was someone else's job to watch out for them. We do not have to read of constitutional rights in Scripture to know that we are to uphold the laws of the land. Ignoring them is not upholding them. We might ponder whether sitting on ones hands while a nation tries to commit suicide is any different than hiding the talent in the earth.

Providence has allowed this to happen for the weeding out of goats from the fold. Christians need not fluster about this or that amendment and who does it doesn't know it, or what wicked judge or politician is taking which rights away, but live as sojourners awaiting the coming of the Lord of Host or their entering of glory. Really do not read much of constitutional rights being defended in the scripture.

Hmmmm...first amendment rights? The right of government to coddle me and tell me when to jump and how high. Oh yes, the most important one, the right to play video games and be constantly entertained.

By the grace of God we ought to destroy the abominable lying fantasy in our churches and nation, "ignorance is bliss"

Hoses 4:5
My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge;
because you have rejected knowledge,
I reject you from being a priest to me.
And since you have forgotten the law of your God,
I also will forget your children.

When, in Roe v. Wade, the Supremely Wicked Court denied the right to life, that opened the door to the eventual denial of any and all other rights. That is why California can deny the right to freedom of speech, and threaten to jail anyone who calls a man a man whether that man likes it or not. It is why Christian bakers or owners of a bed and breakfast can be successfully sued and financially ruined for refusing to endorse sodomites. Rights under the First Amendment? There are no rights under the First Amendment, but only such privileges as devil-worshipping judges will allow.

Phillip Mezzapella, thank you

"
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness."

Glory to God!
Really what genuinely glorifies God, Liberty under God or abandonment to Satanic Tyranny?
Worth fighting for?

"The cornerstone of democracy rests on the foundation of an educated electorate." Thomas Jefferson. "A nation of well informed men who have been taught to know and prize the rights which God has given them cannot be enslaved. It is in the region of ignorance that tyranny begins." Benjamin Franklin. The sad truth is that most people know more about the latest realityshow, the latest rapper, last night's ballgame, the latest hot gossip etc. etc., than our own constitution. And our politicians? Well, there loving every minute of it. To bad we are to preoccupied with our video games to realise what is happening.
