Arrested for Witnessing

Youth pastor Matthew Snatchko was arrested in 2006 when he started a conversation about God with three shoppers at the Roseville Galleria mall in Roseville, California. A store employee overheard the discussion and told Snatchko to leave. He refused and a mall security guard arrested him. He was never charged with a crime and decided to file a lawsuit. A California court ruled in 2008 that the mall's ban on controversial conversations with strangers didn’t violate freedom of speech. But he's appealed to another court and will soon get a date for oral arguments. The mall owner says Snatchko was shown a copy of the rules for speech in the facility but his attorney says the mall has no right to regulate the kind of speech Snatchko was initiating.

Americans can’t have the power, and the wisdom of God since they kicked Him out sixty years ago, by establishing and illegal separation of Church and State, by trampling on the Ten Commandments, and by replacing the Bible with the theory of evolution in public education. Now Americans can only have the same simple mindlessness of the Amoeba, which consists of a mass of protoplasm resembling its contemporary offsprings, the American people

The whole world knows that America is a country made up mostly of money loving idiots, beginning with the idiots at the bottom, and going up, up, and up, to the very top. There are idiots everywhere, from the idiots teaching in schools, colleges, and universities, to the idiots of the mainstream news media, to the self-gagged idiots deceiving the dumbbells from the pulpits of America, to the political idiot in DC. Only a country made up of idiots would elect crooks and liars as their leaders, and enlist the enemy in the armed forces, and tolerate the enemy preaching hate against America in colleges, and universities all across America. And only a country made up of idiots would prohibit a child to read her Bible in school in her own time. America went from the home of the free and the brave, to the home of the dumbed-down idiots lacking the common sense that God gave geese.

The hypocrisy, and dualism of those so-called 501c3 self-gagged wolves in sheep clothing proponents of separation of church and state, having one foot in the church, and the other foot in the world, pretending to serve God, but in reality they are serving mammon, are the very same ones that allowed the wicked for the last sixty-two years to take over America by legalizing one abomination after another, such as Separation of Church and State, Forced Busing, Affirmative Action, Abortion on Demand, Euthanasia, Sodomy, and Same Sex Marriage.

And the nominal wimpy Christians are too preoccupied massaging their bruised little egos, while worshiping the trinity of self, composed of, “ME, MYSELF, and I” and in search for a Jesus that is more in touch with their inner feelings, and for a Jesus that is more harmonious with their own perversions. They don’t see Jesus as King of Kings and Lord of Lords; they see Jesus as Wimp of Wimps and Dumb of Dumbest. These so-called wimpy Christians talk the talk but they do not walk the walk. They know all the songs, and the Christian lingo, but they wobble and fall down when they are supposed to stand up against the wicked, therefore they are wretched, pitiful, poor, blind, naked, and separated from Christ.

To hnrast:
I think you are very wrong about what you wrote here. Obviously you are not a Christian, nor are in any position to judge others. I am a Christian, and I stand up for God. There ARE people out there who still love God with all their hearts and DO disagree with the way our government is handling everything! I hate everything that is going on.. but if you were to ever pick up our beloved Bible, you would understand, as it is written, these events are to take place before Christ returns.

It is our mission as Christians to reach those who do not know Christ and to judge accordingly, but God says, do not judge others if you are not rightly in the position to judge. You reap what you sow. So please do some reading and praying and think about things you will say in the future. You have really offended me and I don't care what you think about everybody.

Not everyone is the same. Those who do wrong, will be judged right, by the Lord. Count on it. But these things are supposed to happen, regardless if we like what is happening or not. The only thing you can and should do, is sanctify yourself and repent your sins, believe in Jesus Christ, and live your life according to His will, not ours! Prepare yourself, for the bridegroom is coming when we least expect it!
Amen. :)

I know, truth is an offence, that’s why Jesus said, he is the truth, and the stone the builders rejected has become the capstone, and everyone who falls on that stone will be broken to pieces, but he on whom it falls will be crushed.

The following are all historical factual events, which have nothing to do with Christ return, but everything to do with self gagged Pastors deceiving the sheep, and selling their souls to the US Government under the IRS 501c3 Tax-exempt Code for a fistful of filthy mammon.

America in the last sixty-two years has regressed systematically to worst levels of debaucheries that were performed in ancient Rome before its downfall. Such as Separation of Church and State, legalized in 1947. --- Church Incorporation under the IRS 501c3 Tax-Exempt Code, gagging and removing from the political arena thousands of churches across America, legalized in 1954. ---- The removal of the Bible and prayer recitation from public education, resulting in the dumbing down of millions of American, legalized in 1963.

Premeditated Murder on Demand or Abortion of demand, each year in the U.S. the abortion industry brings in approximately 831 million dollars through their abortion services alone, plus 337 million dollars from Planned Parenthood, moving the dollar amount well past the 1 billion dollars mark, legalized in 1973 ---

Then came the epitome of sexual perversions, when in 1998, U.S. President William J. Clinton signed executive order 13087, which was nothing more than the glorification, and affirmation of homosexuals, lesbians, and transgender into public education, and into America’s workforce. Followed by the legalization of euthanasia, and same sex marriage

America is in an irrevocable path to perdition, at the present rate of moral decay the Wicked Fools soon will succeed in legalizing Pedophilia, the act of an adult engaging in sexual activities with a child or children, followed by Incest, the act of engaging in sexual activities between persons closely related, and Bestiality, the act of engaging in sexual relations with an animal or animals, and they may even manage to legalize Necrophilia, the act of engaging in sexual relations with a corpse. Now that the perverts have been emboldened for their success in legalizing Same Sex Marriage there is nothing to prevent them from marrying mere children as soon as they succeed in lowering the age of consent, through NAMBLA, the North American Man/Boy Love Association

And where was the Church, the so-called Christians, the moral voice of the nation during all these years, they were ordered by the wicked to hide inside their temple of hypocrisy, thus they chose to obey men rather than to obey God, and now we are reaping the harvest of the perversions sown in the last sixty-tow years.

And who told you these things are supposed to happen, your Government controlled prostitute? Christ did not say to lie around and wait for his return Christ said we must be the salt and the light of the world; in other words, we must be his witnesses, and we must root out evil also, until his return.
