A Pennsylvania pastor says he's been inundated and harassed with phone calls and emails after a Donald Trump delegate and local school board member took to Twitter to voice his opposition to a Ramadan greeting posted outside the church to show solidarity with Muslims.
The Rev. Christopher Rodkey, the pastor of St. Paul's United Church of Christ in Dallastown, Pennsylvania, told the York Daily Recorder that he received a nasty voicemail to his cell phone on June 11 from an unidentified man who took issue with a sign posted out front of the church that reads: "Wishing a blessed Ramadan to our Muslim neighbors."
"I am completely shocked by that sign out in front of your church, that you are wishing [blessings on] people who subscribe to a faith that is not only godless but pagan, in front of your church, aligning it with the name of Christ," the voicemail states, according to a recording obtained by the York Daily Record. more >>

In a new book released last week titled If You Can Keep It: The Forgotten Promise of American Liberty, the 53-year-old Metaxas explains that the American republic was created by the nation's Founding Fathers to be shared with the entire world.
But, Metaxas stresses that Americans today have become too complacent with their freedoms and are too willing to give up their ability to govern themselves.
