[195] 1st Amendment

Remember the good old days, the time when people marched against porn and porn theaters? Remember when the purveyors of porn wrapped themselves in the red, white, and blue First Amendment blanket?

Remember that? Now Christians seem headed to do the same. It is clear that the First Amendment is not very popular in many of our colleges and universities. The mere expression of conservative political views will imperil the speaker (or in the case of the student writing a paper, the writer).

But what of the faith? How welcome would any of us be, expressing a Christian worldview on non-religious radio or television? Try a talk show. How comfortable? If you say, “not very,” you are also saying the First Amendment is under siege.

We may soon be asking the porn peddlers if they have any extra blankets. DC
