Christian Author On Trial Part 1

News Report 1 of 4 – Background Info

America is travelling on a slippery slope these days. Hate and lack of tolerance are the new norms. Political correctness has become an excuse to gripe about things that mean diddly-squat, the three branches of government have trampled on the constitution, leaving no checks-and-balances for ALL the people, and radicals of any kind move about freely wreaking havoc at will.

We all have an opinion on these topics. Some voice their views openly while others sit tight and watch the action. However, all of these things are just the tip of “something” larger—something that is about to happen—possibly sooner than we may think! It doesn’t matter which side of the aisle you’re on or what your religious preference is—you may have none. Regardless of your position, you do need to be aware of the choking odor that is floating on the winds of time.

In that regard, I wrote a series of four news reports (1 to 4) about a court trial for a Christian author charged with writing books about God. The titles will be Christian Author On Trial Part _. I used myself as the scapegoat author because I have recently published two faith-based books. Though the four reports are currently fictitious, they could become real news headlines if we continue on our present course and do nothing to stop America’s slide.

Think a trial like this can’t possibly happen in America? Think again before you go waltzing around in the den as though everything is hunky-dory. Read all the reports in the proper sequence before you answer the question. They may make you start viewing the situation differently. If nothing else, you can go waltzing around possessing a new awareness.

Each report will appear a day or so apart. Again, I urge you to read them in the order presented (1 to 4) for full effect. A fifth report may follow if deemed necessary. The following is the first of the four reports.



The Trial Continues

This is Mike Jones of ATILBnews reporting to you live from outside the courthouse in Washington on the precedent setting trial the media has dubbed, NAG vs Christian Author.

In continuing efforts to remove God from America, a group calling themselves nonBelievers Against God (NAG) received support from the Justice Department and charged Christian author Tom Tatum on two counts.

Count One: Writing books supporting the existence of God

Count Two: Conspiracy to keep God in America

Throughout this precedent-setting trial, the prosecutor, supposedly representing millions of NAG members, has battled toe-to-toe with one man who has not been afraid to stand up and defend his faith in God. The prosecutor has relentlessly attacked Tatum’s character and his book from every possible angle. By aggressively supporting NAG, the government has openly declared war on all Christians and Believers.

Under conditions of anonymity, a high-level official from the Justice Department stated, “The first amendment rights granted by the U. S. Constitution do not apply to Christians or their religious propaganda teachings.” He further stated, “America is not a nation of a fictitious entity called God, and we will fight all weak-minded individuals who believe it is. We are tired of hearing the words God, Christians, and Believers, and mainstream media fully supports our efforts to remove these words from America. We have the resolve to be victorious in the war to remove God from America—forever! Just look around—we are winning and Christians are clueless. They remain silent and are doing nothing to stop us. This case is just the tip of a giant iceberg. We are taking this war to every corner of America, and we will not stop until God is completely removed.”

Things got a bit disorderly in the courtroom on several occasions today. The judge had to clear the room due to outbursts from NAG leaders cheering during the prosecutor’s attacks on Tatum. Some of the NAG supporters started shoving people who were in the courtroom supporting Tatum. The judge charged a dozen of the prosecutor’s supporters with contempt when they refused to heed his warnings to keep quiet. Officers had to place them in handcuffs and remove them from the courtroom. Two of those arrested were field reporters from other media outlets. I guess it’s an indication how biased the mainstream media has become. It appears journalism is now a platform used by many to voice their personal opinions and agendas rather than simply reporting the facts.

Gretchen, the judge even considered moving the trial to another location or completely closing the proceedings to the media. Fortunately, that will not likely happen. Both sides will present their closing arguments soon, but cameras won’t be allowed inside the courtroom. I’ll record those court sessions and share details with our viewers in several follow-up reports.

Folks, that’s the latest news we have for you at the moment. I’ll have more details on the NAG vs Christian Author trial throughout the week. #ATILBnews reports to keep you informed.

  1. Though fictional NOW, it doesn’t stretch our imagination much at all to think it could happen. Things have gotten scary crazy for a long time now! Carol

  2. As scary as this sounds I can see this happening. I fear to think what kind of world our grandkids are going to face.

    • Amen! Thank you for stopping by and sharing your thoughts, Peggy. I’m glad this trial is fictional and only presents a “highly unlikely” event in the future. It’s simply a “what if” type scenario to stimulate thoughts. With that being said, no human has any idea what will actually happen in the future.


  3. It is very sad that our country seems to be heading in this direction. Please keep writing!

    • Thank you for your comment, Write.Brained. It is very sad, but slippery slopes can be altered if we are willing to join together and start making our voices heard. It’s the silence and acceptance that hurts the most—maybe a bit of denial as well. We do have a great leader.
