URGENT!

I’ll post an update and recap from today later. However, I think everyone needs to know about this and contact their senator ASAP! If you think this doesn’t affect the church, you would be wrong. We must stand up before we lose more of our liberty.

Buried on pages 193 and 194 of the “stimulus” bill (better known as the “big government growth spending bill”) is this language, which says what those institutions, including schools who receive any of these funds can and cannot do:

(3) PROHIBITED USES OF FUNDS.—No funds
awarded under this section may be used for—
(A) the maintenance of systems, equipment, or facilities, including maintenance associated with any permissible uses of funds described in paragraph ;
(B) modernization, renovation, or repair of
stadiums or other facilities primarily used for
athletic contests or exhibitions or other events
for which admission is charged to the general public;
(C) modernization, renovation, or repair of
facilities—
(i) used for sectarian instruction, religious worship, or a school or department  of divinity; or in which a substantial portion of
the functions of the facilities are subsumed
in a religious mission
; or  (D) construction of new facilities.

Watch this video of Senator Jim DeMint as he explains the significance. It is worth the watch, THEN you need to contact your senator. THIS IS UP FOR VOTE ON MONDAY, February 9th! Could it impact churches like ours and hundreds across the nation meeting in schools? I’m not being alarmist, but don’t think it couldn’t…Maybe I am being alarmist, somebody needs to!
