Living in Up-Side-Down Land – Legislature attempts to restore rights already given by Constitution


In Up-Side-Down Land, the first amendment to the Constitution still reads as it was written:

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

However, once you move to ‘Up-Side-Down Land’, it actually means Congress may make a law or the Courts may rule on a law that prohibits the free exercise of speech, press, the right of people to peaceably assemble, and the right to petition the government for a redress of grievances. It also means the government has made a law respecting an establishment of religion.

Sometimes, the people living in ‘Up-Side-Down Land’ attempt to set it right. They tend to forget our forefathers tried that already.

Keeping this in mind will help you understand what is happening in the state of TN.

Tennessee bill would expand students’ religious rights

NASHVILLE — Local school boards would be required to let select students voluntarily express their “religious viewpoints,” be they Christian, Jewish, Muslim, Wiccan or atheist, at football games, school assemblies and graduation ceremonies under a bill moving in the House.

Did you know students could not do this? If you did not know all of these things, ie, freedom of speech is now taboo as well as freedom to express one’s religious beliefs, then you probably did not know that you have moved from the ‘United States of America’ to the ‘Divided States of Up-Side-Down Land’.
