First Person Arrested for Praying Days Before Biden Sworn into Office
Conservative Americans are bracing for the possibility that life could change after former Vice President Joe Boden is inaugurated on Jan. 20. While it’s as yet unknown exactly what will change, the chances of it getting better for the evangelical conservative, seem slim.
There has been no pretense of love for conservatives among Democrats, and the events of Jan. 6 when a rally-turned false flag operation turned deadly and the response from the left, has many Americans wondering how the America handed down to us became a place where those who want to preserve the constitution are persecuted.
Case in point: According to a report by NBC News, there has already been an arrest made for a man guilty of praying with someone the left doesn’t like (no, we’re not joking, this is real, and NBC admitted to it).
Via NBC News:
A New Mexico county official was arrested Sunday after federal authorities said he entered a restricted section of the U.S. Capitol during the deadly pro-Trump incursion and led rioters in prayer.
Couy Griffin, an Otero County commissioner and founder of Cowboys for Trump, was arrested in Washington. D.C., and faces a single charge of knowingly entering or remaining in a restricted building without lawful authority, a federal criminal complaint said.
In an affidavit, a Metropolitan Police detective said a Cowboys for Trump videographer told authorities that after he and Griffin saw the group push past security barriers, they scaled the Capitol building’s wall before making their way to an outside deck.
There, Griffin used a bullhorn to lead the group in prayer, the document states.
We appear to have reached a point where the media and law enforcement in some areas, feels that it’s appropriate to penalize a person for praying with those who the in-favor political party doesn’t agree with. The freedom of religion that was once so prevalent in the nation founded on Biblical principles seems to be regarded as a toxic relic of an immature time.
In the video, which was cited by the affidavit, Griffin told the crowd he was speaking to that it was a “great day for America” and that “people are showing that they’ve had enough.”
“People are ready for fair and legal elections, or this what you’re going to get,” he said, according to the affidavit.
The politically active conservative also seemed to pose a future threat, according to NBC. The network reported that on the Cowboys for Trump page, Griffin also said that he planned to attend another rally in the nation’s capital, on Jan. 20, saying that it was going to possibly be a “2nd Amendment rally” that would include “blood running out of that building,” the affidavit says.
It’s unclear whether the affidavit will show proof of the post, which is not readily evident on Griffin’s Facebook page which has over 120,000 followers. What is evident, however, is his strong stance against gun-control and an election he believes was rigged.
In one of the last posts on the page, Griffin spoke about his arrival in D.C. on Sunday, just hours before NBC’s report was published:
I’ve arrived in Washington DC and my first stop is here at our National Cathedral. A place that should be a place of prayer and fellowship during this most difficult time in our nation has been closed to the public for months. Yet this Sunday morning as I peer thru locked doors I can see an elect or elite few having service. Yet those who are starving for faith and hope are locked outside!
This is a very sad day for America. And sadly if America’s elections are stolen will only be the beginning of many more sad days to come. Beautiful buildings like our National Cathedral will look much like the many ruins of great buildings and architecture all thru Eastern Europe.
America is on the brink of collapse. And it will only be by Gods grace and the strength of the American People if we are ever to survive!!
America has, it seems, reached its teenage years. We started off well enough. We did things no one had done, we excelled in a way that made us the envy of the world. But then we started to know everything. We didn’t look for help from the one who created us and gave us the foundation on which to thrive.
We claim to not need anything from anyone, even though we don’t actually have anything of ourselves, other than an over-inflated sense of self worth. But sure, let’s try arresting the people praying with bull horns. Squelching freedom of religion has historically always gone so well.
