Steve Rose is a Christian and believes it is a "good thing" to go to church.
Steve also owns Bailey's Pizza.
He, like many small business owners, is very creative.
Recently he began offering a 10% discount to people who brought in a church bulletin---indicating they had gone to church.
The assault on our freedom of religion is expanding and accelerating. Almost daily we hear of people in the wedding services business being sued, fined and put out of business because of their deeply held beliefs in biblical marriage.
Abortion advocates, including our own government, continuously try to force businesses to provide abortion pills to employees, even though the business owner believes in the sanctity of life and opposes abortion because of their religious convictions.
Now the assault on religious freedom---particularly Christianity, has expanded to food services---specifically pizza places.
An atheist organization, run by a former evangelical minister, is threatening to sue Steve Rose if he doesn't stop giving people a 10% discount because they went to church.

A New York judge has issued a ruling after a Christian family refused to allow a same-sex couple to use their upstate family farm as a setting for their "marriage."
Cynthia and Robert Gifford have been subsidizing their farm income by renting out the farm and part of their large barn-like house for special events, including weddings.
Because they politely refused this particular "wedding" business, they have now been slapped with a $13,000 fine, with $3,000 of it going to the lesbian couple for the "anguish" they suffered by the rejection.
The Giffords and their employees must now go through a "re-education program."
A similar situation occurred at Le Blanc's Rice Creek Hunting and Recreation preserve in Minnesota.
The Christian owners supplement their income from the 1,700 acre farm by renting out the facilities for special events, including weddings.
When threatened with an expensive court trial and the possibility of fines in the thousands of dollars, they decided they did not have the money to fight the two homosexual men who were demanding the use of their property and the force of the state, so they worked out a compromise.
American Founder Patrick Henry famously said as he looked at the British ships anchored off the coast of the Colonies, "When people forget God, tyrants forge their chains."
Is the obsession with same-sex marriage, the homosexual agenda, and the laws that have been enacted to enforce the agenda becoming the ball and chain of 21st Century America?

The lucrative abortion industry is in panic mode. This generation is not buying their marketing message of killing unwanted babies as a "pro-choice" act.
Planned Parenthood and their first cousins NARAL, Emily's list---you know their family, are now advocating a "pro-abortion reversal" of Roe v. Wade.
They are changing their words and their tactics.
They are now advocating the idea that abortion is a Second Amendment right, equivalent to the right to keep and bear arms.
They are dramatically changing their words and tactics, but be assured, Planned Parenthood's founder Margaret Sanger's philosophy and mission is intact. They have not departed from her eugenicist goals.
Here's the new game plan.

The College Board's Advancement Placement Program (AP) has delivered a "comprehensive course redesign" of US history for the 2014-15 school year.
US history has evolved to better reflect the far left secular progressive view of America.
They say it will better prepare your child for college.
Informed parents are asking, "What happened to George Washington?"---and the values and principles that made America the freest and most prosperous nation in the history of the world?
This is a defiant step toward revising America's heritage to "remake America" into the image of mediocrity and secularism.
The College Board, whose efforts are linked to Common Core Standards, says their revised US history will "help students' ability to think critically, construct solid arguments and see many sides of an issue."
However, my personal review does not reflect "many sides" of any so-called "issues" of historical significance. It reflects a very narrow view which highlights and advances the far left progressive Cultural Marxism that is nurtured in public education.
Here's a couple of things I think parents and grandparents should know.

However, they are circulating a message that I believe every conservative and person of Christian faith should very carefully evaluate.
It is regarding your vote. Its titled, "Ten Easy Steps for Voting With A Clear Conscience."
Steps #7 and #8 caught my attention.
Number 7 is "Remember the Party Matters."
Number 8 is "Distinguish 'Choosing Evil' From 'Limiting Evil'."
