Freedom Under Attack
Posted by imfreenow on April 23, 2009
Simultaneously with hearing of Obama’s intentions of attacking freedom in various areas, such as the freedom to speak out against homosexuality in the pulpit, I am getting attacked at work. It is interesting that I recently got promoted, praise God!
I got a sort of promotion, as I got asked to do more administration work, which works out to more pay. It also has produced new enemies, as there is a woman who is also older, who resents my having been given this position because she has been there a long time and doesn’t like to have me come along and have to answer to me, and has been giving me trouble. It turns out she is a witch. No kidding! She looks like one!
And someone, maybe her, has complained that we talk openly about our faith at work. “We” is me and the bible school students that they hired because they particularly want to go to a local bible school to hire people because they want the work ethic they get out of these students. They want the work ethic but they don’t want the students to talk about the thing they are studying! Double standard!
My boss just handed out a memo yesterday stating that all religious and political talk must end!
This puts us in a box. The one good thing about our company has been the freedom we have had to talk openly about faith and politics. And there has been no heated discussions or upsets going on. It seems someone just went quietly and complained – back stabbing us! Perhaps it was this woman, perhaps not.
In any case, the freedom I had at work is gone. Please pray for me. This was also the freedom I had to share my faith with those who seemed to be lost spiritually. Now this will make it all a touchy area, and difficult to go about.
Pray that God will continue to open doors for me and the guys from the bible school. (We have only guys because girls don’t do as well in the telemarketing. Only older women seem to do well at that.)
Thanks you guys. I love your prayers!
