Christians In Idaho Arrested For Singing Hymns Without Face Jock Straps

BY Herschel Smith
7 months, 1 week ago

What a wonderful day in the life of the republic!  Proud, honorable, brave heroes of the community serving and defending the constitution and keeping the citizens safe.

If this had been a grocery store where a patron refused to follow proprietor request, a law enforcement officer would have been right to escort the patron off the premises.  Property rights matter.

But this is church – it is a voluntary association.  Government has no right to interfere in voluntary associations.

As if you needed any further suggestions, let this be a warning.  Cops will obey orders.  If they are ordered to arrest people for singing hymns, they will do so.  If they are ordered to confiscate firearms, they will do so.

    All coproaches will do what their political masters instruct them to do. Full stop.

    No man on Earth can be deprived of his liberty by political force absent the police.

    Yes, that’s one way to look at it.

    Here’s another way. Names are taken. “Meetings” are held with the responsible LEOs when they take their dogs out into the backyard at midnight to take a piss before retiring for the evening.

    Those “meetings” are … fruitful. Or not.

    Everyone is self-identifying right about now.

    So if we sing hymns in a BLM shirt, would that be acceptable? Shame on LEO especially in Idaho of all places.

    @ Bill Buppert: “All coproaches will do what their political masters instruct them to do. Full stop.”

    That’s not entirely true. Some are in the pay of drug cartels, etc., who are simply paymasters, not political masters.

    As much as I disagree with black olives matter ect. will say it again,this kind of nonsense keeps up perhaps really tis time to “defund the police”.

    We all know the only thing that will stop all this, fear of death. It will overcome all else for most of the US gestapo/stasi.

    The Founders knew this and gave us the means in writing, the Lord gave it to us upon our birth.

    Red Flag laws begin disarming of America, there is only one reason to take the means of self defense.

    They intend to destroy TRADs, I am certain LaVoy Finicum would agree…

    I watched that video. What bothered me the most was all the other Christians kept singing and did nothing to help their brethren while they were arrested; only some applause for the young girl getting hauled off in handcuffs. It was like watching zebras graze while one of their herd is devoured by lions. Maybe I shouldn’t feel this way??

    Two thoughts as I read this story..

    Although it’s easy to do these days, we should remind ourselves not to paint all LEOs with the same broad brush. Even if the 80/20 rule applies, there are some patriotic cops out there who are acting according to their principles and consciences. This would be more the case in suburbs and more rural places sheriffs departments are the LEOs -they are more likely to personally know the people.

    The second thought that crossed my mind is – if we think THIS kind of harassment is persecution of Christians, the Bible reminds us that we ain’t seen nothing yet.

    There is only one way to stop this from happening. Take this issue to the politicians/bureaucrats that causing this. Elimination may be required.

    Bob in NC,

    Bull Puckey!

    Where were the “good guy” cops when the “few bad apples” were arresting people in the exercise of their First Amendment guaranteed right? Shouldn’t the “Vast Majority” have been there protecting honest, innocent, law abiding, Christian people, from the “few bad apples”?

    Get on your knees and fellate the nearest badged thug if that is your pleasure. But, stop spewing your erroneous bovine coprolite (no pun intended) at your neighbors as though it will sell any longer.

    Remember, Gentlemen, they are proud of themselves.

    Moscow, Idaho’s a big college town. I’m sure there were lots of enlightened idiots cheering this on.
    Most cops will do as they’re told as they aren’t looking at the big picture. They’re more concerned with their fat pension than following their oath. And face it; you don’t exactly need a Bachelors degree to join the local PD.

  13. On September 26, 2020 at 9:24 am, Fred said:

    Bob is 80/20 percent of the way there. He will learn. Often it takes a personal interaction to fully get it, but all well learn to obey their masters.

    Obviously TPTB see whites as the main problem and roadblock to the Revolution. They are probably right. But, nobody will fight back. Outside of a few pockets of resistance here and there whitey will all get on the railcars.

    But for anybody that is serious it’s time to stop arguing the stupid constitution. The left has never read it and doesn’t care what it says. It’s a baseline that only exists among any who would adhere. Nobody adheres so that baseline doesn’t exist anymore. There is however a higher and immutable Law. It’s time to draw absolute lines, which are clear and final, from God’s Holy Word.

    Nothing scares a commie more than a bible believer. And, they are right to be fearful. Sadly America’s Christians aren’t really bible believers though.

    The problem is Christians still see the US government as legitimate. It is not. Look to Jehoiada and 2 Chronicles 23. Read to the end and don’t miss what happened when the profit restored both the civil rule and ecclesiastical position throughout the land.

    I can’t wait to see some of my neighbors with the “Support the Blue” signs in their front yards today. They will say: “But the police were just following orders”.

    Ha. Ha. “following Orders.” I always tell them that it must be nice living in the 80s. I wish I could live there too.

  15. On September 26, 2020 at 10:01 am, Ned said:

    I have a friend who lives next to an AZ state police captain. He asked him point blank if he would knock down doors to collect guns if so ordered.

    He told my friend that he will do ANYTHING he’s ordered to in order to protect his pension. So it’s not the “old timers” who will be on our side when the confiscation order occurs.

    Trampling citizen’s rights are just business as usual in order to collect a paycheck.

    But if your business is being looted & burned they’ll be hiding just around the corner – because Blue Lives Matter.

    Well, the cancer is deeper than we first thought? But why in the hell would you want to sing hymns outside of one of Satan’s shrines anyway. Didn’t think he was going to react badly to that?
    It’s actually kind of humorous. In a pathetic kind of way. Considering all that’s going on.
    Pitch forks and torches next time people!

  17. On September 26, 2020 at 11:39 am, MTHead said:

    Wait till they figure out the lesser of two evils. Is still evil.
    Just don’t hold your breath in the mean time.

  18. On September 26, 2020 at 11:41 am, William said:

    These episodes demonstrate the power of the mortgage and the power of the pension, your God-given birthrights be damned.

    Who defines the value of money other than the Federal Reserve? The USD keeps depreciating, driving up the costs of living, making everyone fearful of a reduced standard of living. The coproaches are simply responding to this fear.

    The Federal Reserve needs to go, and debt jubilees need to be instituted.

    St. Paul was right when he said “The love of money is the root of all all kinds of evil”.

    @ Longbow & Fred,

    Cheer up boys – I have had several positive interactions with local LEOs in the past year…one at church and one in the lobby of my doctor’s office building. That doesn’t mean that I believe they are all like that and I assume they are in the 20%.

    It also doesn’t suggest that I am naïve enough to believe that they might not change their behavior as things continue to deteriorate. But I prefer to follow the scriptural maxim – know a tree by it’s fruit.

    And Longbow, take heart – I kneel for no one except Jesus.

    Don’t be so quick to judge. If you knew the situation in the Moscow area and the people involved you might have more sympathy for the police.

  21. On September 26, 2020 at 6:21 pm, Drew in Michigan said:

    Question; Isn’t this a disparity in the application of the law? I mean if you let one whole segment of the population ignore the law, how can you apply it evenly to another segment? 14th amnd, maybe? I need to learn more about this! Point me in the right direction please.

    “Moscow” Idaho, lmao. That’s rich. College town PD’s are beholden to their local Gulag politics and will jump as high as required by the local commie college system. Jimmy above in the comments also has it right. Most people have zero understanding of how deep our crime is in FUSA. I too think 20pct is probably a good general number. Could be lower or higher depending on your locale. Either way if you find any of that 20pct there’s a huge recruiting opportunity for freefor. These guys know the 4gw terrain because they are immersed in it daily. Remember the only person defending your life is you. Period.

    So tell me the situation Mike? Inquiring minds want to know. What about the “situation” makes it okay to arrest men singing hymns?

    Hey Bob in NC –

    Where were those patriotic cops while the constitution denying cops were arresting citizens?

    Covid has shown me (nationalist Christian and white male) that Public Enemy was more correct than not.

    Demilitarize, significantly defund and remove immunity from the police. Or just get rid of them all together. We are safer when goverment employees are disarmed.
