“Feeding my kids isn’t selfish,” said Shelley Luther, to the judge before being sentenced to 7 days in jail for re-opening her hair salon in Dallas, Texas.
Shelly Luther made the controversial decision to defy Texas’s stay-at-home order and reopened her salon this last week on April 24th. The Judge asked Luther to apologize, admit that she was wrong, and close her hair salon until it was allowed to re-open, Luther refused and was then sentenced to 7 days in jail.
It is being reported that since the sentence, Luther has been hit with a hefty 7,000 dollar fine. Her salon is also being fined $1000 for every day she continues to defy the state’s orders. The Governor of Texas, Greg Abbott, has just stated that Salons can open this Friday, May 8th, so Luther will be fined every day till Friday.
I am shocked this happening. This isn’t the America I know, and I refuse to accept this as a “new normal.” People have the RIGHT to earn a living!
I have said this and will continue to say this, our Constitutional rights do not go away in the midst of a pandemic. We must rise up and speak up! I hope this woman shows the pastors out there what a backbone looks like, because in the midst of all of this madness, churches have the right to assemble, and we are protected by the Constitution to do so! The INDIVIDUAL has the RIGHT to CHOOSE TO STAY HOME OR CHOOSE TO NOT STAY HOME!
Freedom is CHOICE.
All of this started as a virus. It has since morphed into a paralyzing FEAR. Irrational fear, not based on science. Power and control have since taken over and we are witnessing complete government overreach.
Here is Luther’s response to the judge. This woman is a hero!
The price of having a dissenting opinion is great. Look at what happened to Martin Luther King Jr. when he went completely against group think, and spoke of equality and freedom. Look at what happened to Rosa Parks, when she refused to comply and move to the back of the bus. Look at what happened to Jesus when HE did not align with the Pharisees and Sadduces -they hung HIM on a tree. The list of those who dared to question authority, who dared to have an alternate view, who dared to speak up and speak out is endless……
When we are being told by authority that “staying at home saves lives,” but child abuse cases are up. Suicide is skyrocketing. Domestic abuse and drug abuse are up too. Are we not to question if these lives are being saved?
We are being told by authority that we must sacrifice our businesses and livelihoods by staying home to get this virus to go away. But SCIENCE completely contradicts with this methodology. Throughout history SCIENCE has NEVER aligned with quarantining HEALTHY people. NEVER. As we sit at home, our immune systems are shutting down because we are not being exposed to necessary bacteria and viruses that BUILD UP our immunities. We already have the antibodies to fight what is in our homes, we must be exposed to society, in order to fight and survive what is in our society. There is NO SCIENCE in “staying home saves lives” NONE.
Those in authority have inferred that by staying home, the virus will go away. Here’s a little secret, the virus IS NOT GOING AWAY. The whole reason we were staying home was NOT to get rid of the virus, it was so we wouldn’t “overrun” our hospitals. Well that moment has passed. You can tune in to TikTok, and see a plethora of nurses dancing around in their PPE- we’re good now, all clear 👍. This is not a slam on nurses or doctors either. They should have moments to dance, and celebrate that they are no longer in war zones anymore. I have a sister who is a nurse and my brother’s sister is also a nurse working with Covid19 patients. I am extremely grateful for their service and sacrifice during this time.
People might want to stay home till there’s a vaccine and that is their right to do so. Unfortunately, most viruses, don’t have vaccines, and waiting for a vaccine before one leaves their home, could quite possibly mean waiting FOREVER. Or a vaccine could possibly come out that is as accurate as the flu vaccine.
Many are upset that people want to Work. But it is WORKING PEOPLE that FUND our Government. The government runs and functions off of the WORKING AMERICAN. That stimulus check, brought to you by THE WORKING AMERICAN. The government can not continue printing money and sending checks when NO AMERICAN WORKER is producing. This would create inflation and an onset of a GREAT DEPRESSION.
Living in America means YOU get to CHOOSE.
THIS IS WHAT I AM FIGHTING FOR, AND THIS IS WHAT IS UNDER ATTACK.
Our country was founded upon INDIVIDUAL LIBERTY. The right for the INDIVIDUAL, NOT Government (Authority) to CHOOSE what is best for the Individual.
It is in this moment we should question authority. We must not so flippantly fall in line and watch our rights trampled upon. Right now, in this moment, our Constitutional Rights are being overridden, and we should question this.
Yes, people will tell you to “shut up.” People will tell you to fall in line and comply.
People will tell you to STOP.
Don’t let them silence you. Don’t let them bully you.
Can you take the heat?
We are the LAND OF THE FREE.
I honestly believe we are at a pivotal moment in history. We are living in a time when right is wrong and wrong is right. We have let feelings override truth. In order “not to offend” we have compromised all logic, reason, science, common sense and most importantly our faith. Our schools are being taught by left wing liberals solely there to indoctrinate. Our churches are being lead by milquetoast weak Priests and Pastors who encourage love without loves primary component -redemption; And in the meantime Christians are literally “loving” people into hell. Jesus did not come to unite, he came to divide. Division is often stigmatized, but division is necessary. There is no unity between light and darkness. Light separates itself from darkness. We are called to LOVE all, but not to unify with all. Love is essential because real love convicts and transforms. When transformation occurs then unity is possible, but not until then.
Christians have become sedated. We are too afraid to speak the truth and because of this look at our world! Women are being encouraged to “shout their abortion.” Just this last week, we witnessed the Democrat legislature in New York cheering a bill that allows for late term abortion up till birth. We watched a Democrat Virginia legislator advocate for a bill that would allow for a baby to be murdered during labor! The Democrat Governor of Virginia openly supported infanticide last week! Democrats in my state are putting forth a sex education bill that teaches Kindergarten through 12th grade about alternative sexual lifestyles, and that there are multiple genders, THERE ARE NOT. God made MALE and he made FEMALE. If you have a problem with that, take it up with God.
These legislators represent our society. They are our voice. When you elect a legislator that supports late term abortion- YOU support late term abortion. Your voice, is your vote. Abortion directly contradicts Gods word. Jeremiah 1:5 says: Before I formed you in the womb I knew you and before you were born I consecrated you.” Life is created by God and for God, there are no accidents.
Sadly, Christians have wanted to be loved by the world instead of speaking truth to the world. Our silence has allowed evil to run rampant. The truth cuts like a sword, there is no gray when it comes to the truth. We are not to be lukewarm, Jesus said “because you are lukewarm –neither hot nor cold –I am about to spit you out of my mouth” Revelation 3:16. Bring the TRUTH. The truth is Gods word. You know what the truth does? It saves. It heals. It sets the oppressed free. It wields unlimited power and we have it. We have been given the same power Jesus has through the Holy Spirit. Romans 8:11 “And if the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead is living in you, he who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies because of his Spirit who lives in you.” Jesus even said that we the church the body of Christ would do GREATER things than he did, “Very truly I tell you, whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father,” John 14:12.
The time is NOW. No more sitting on the sidelines. The time is now to RISE UP. To step out in faith. To speak the truth to your sphere of influence. No more conscientious objectors. The time is now to stand up to evil. The time is now to proclaim what God’s word says. Evil wants you quiet. Evil wants you complacent, but God has called you for such a time as this. God knew you before he formed you. He has placed you on this planet for this specific time in history. We have been called to bring Heavens Kingdom to earth. “Thy Kingdom come, thy will be done ON EARTH as it is in HEAVEN,” Matthew 6:10. If it’s not present in heaven, God doesn’t want it on earth. We are his vessels. Enough of letting the world silence us!
I am not going to lie to you though, this isn’t going to be easy. You will have family turn against you, friends leave your side, you will at times walk alone-it’s going to be a battle but the King of Kings is on your side! Rise up, the time is now.
I loved watching Rand Paul here, I thought I’d share!
Rand: “You sell something and I agree to buy it, because I like it.”
Wow, what a concept!
Hmmm, let’s try exercising the Freedom to NOT be forced to buy something that you don’t like-aka ObamaCare!
The idea of freedom, is slowly becoming a foreign mindset!
The 114th Congress will be sworn in tomorrow-hoping to see some real change! Not just talk-talk-talk! Now, I know that we are going to see a lot of Veto’s from Obama, but-it’s gonna look pretty bad if he veto’s everything that the House and Senate Pass.
Come on elected officials….DO what we ELECTED you to DO!!!
