Freedom’s Not Always Fun!
We celebrate the Fourth of July as a reminder of what makes our nation so great.

“If we believe in freedom, we believe in the sanctity of each individual to own and control the fruits of his labors. This means that freedom naturally encompasses the six or seven commandments that deal with how we treat others.
Thou shalt not steal, kill, lie, covet others’ possessions, or dishonor others.
We must understand that in order for our own freedom to be respected, we must equally respect others’ freedom. Once we start eroding the edges of freedom, no matter how “morally justified,” freedom itself has been infringed.”
Happy Fourth of July

But freedom cannot be qualified. Either people are free to do with their own…
