"This is what it is, this is who I am
This is where I finally take my stand
I didn't wanna fall but I about to crawl
I met the one with two scarred hands"

Freedom of Speech?
Why can't God's name be brought up in schools?
Freedom of Religion?
Why can't we pray at school?
Freedom of Press?
Why are christian network stations primarily denied?

I'm not saying
That I have no freedoms
But, I'm just in a box
Being restrained from all my freedom

Like a runner, passing out before the finish line
Or a dog, the steak just out of reach

Yes, we have freedoms
But not complete freedoms
They discriminate against me
And all my people
Because we are believers

My faith is disregarded
But the crazy things never thought possible
Are normal

Freedom? I Think Not.

Everyone says we have complete freedom, but my faith, Christianity, seems to be discriminated against, Just a thought.

Some call me fearless. I really just ignore the fear.

You can quote me on that.

I love your message here, and you wrote this really well. I would like to point out though, that faith in and of itself seems to be attacked, not just Christianity. Keep up the good work!
