In America, our rights to free speech and exercise of religion are rapidly, brazenly being ripped from us. It’s happening every day.
If you want to see what happens when we allow your government to violate our God-given liberties, take a look at the United Kingdom, where a Catholic journalist and mother is the subject of a criminal investigation for—get this—”misgendering” the trans child of an LGBT activist on Twitter.
LifeSite News reports:
Caroline Farrow, 44, is a well-known Catholic apologist and commentator on social issues in the United Kingdom. She appeared on television talk show “Good Morning Britain” last September to debate transgender activist Susie Green. Green took her son Jack Green, now known as “Jackie,” to Thailand for a “sex change” when he was 16. Now Susie Green has made a complaint to police that Farrow “misgendered” her now-adult child online.
Farrow revealed the police investigation via Twitter.
That’s right, refusal to go along with the current of cultural insanity and posting a tweet that refers to a mentally ill child by his actual gender could land you behind bars in Britain.
“Had a message from Guildford police tonight about my tweets following an appearance on GMB with Susie Green and Piers Morgan,” Farrow wrote.
“Susie Green has reported me for misgendering her daughter [sic]. I have pointed out to the police that I am a Catholic journalist/commentator and it is my religious belief that a person cannot change sex,” she continued.
We should never for a moment take our free speech for granted here in the US; no matter what those in power do, our nation was and always will have been founded on the principles that God gives us our rights, not the government.
The fact remains, however, that there are many leaders in power today who would love to apply these Orwellian laws to the US. This is all the more reason we must fight to maintain our rights so that this sort of vast government overreach never reaches our shores.
For Farrow, this nightmare is happening right now, and it’s all too real.
Because the mere mention of the reality of biological gender makes those under the gender that it’s fluid feel “unsafe”, Farrow’s simple tweet referring to a boy as a boy leaves her open to hate crime charges under England’s Malicious Communications Act. If found guilty, she could spend up to two years in prison.
Although Farrow is cooperating with police, the liberal media and LGBT mob in the UK isn’t satisfied, and the witch hunt is well underway.
“Whether or not I am in breach of the Malicious Communications Act or have broken the law needs to be investigated by the police & a court of law. Not the @vicderbyshire show,” Farrow said in another tweet.
“I don’t even remember said tweets. This was in September,” Farrow wrote when she first announced the investigation on Twitter. “I have done nothing wrong, nothing illegal and will happily do jail time for my right to say that people cannot change sex.”
People, if we don’t stand up to this deranged mob mentality and demand our elected representatives grow a spine in fighting off their dangerous policies, how long do you think you have before someone shows up at your door to arrest you for a tweet, a Facebook comment, a conversation overheard in a restaurant, or even an association with a conservative church?
This is coming to our shores if we don’t do something about it right now.
