KrisAnne has been featured on C-SPAN TV and C-SPAN Book TV. KrisAnne can be found at www.KrisAnneHall.com


Here's some of what you missed on Tuesday, Jan 29th:
  • For the past five years, the Southern Poverty Law Center has listed KrisAnne Hall as a “Hate Group.” Since their rules say they only list groups they actually created a group so they could list her that way as well. What an example of situational ethics!
  • As usual, KrisAnne asked us to keep an open mind to hearing new ideas.
  • She said, “If you’re living in quiet harmony with your government something is wrong…you’re likely a slave.”
  • “Voting isn’t how you change government…it’s what you do the other 364 days that controls our government.”
  • You know Patrick Henry’s famous statement, “Give me liberty or give me death!” Have you read the full short speech? KrisAnne’s homework assignment: Read it. See it here at: http://avalon.law.yale.edu/18th_century/patrick.asp
  • Where did we get the concept of “separation of church and state”? The 1100 Charter of Liberties. YOU probably know “the church is meant to speak out and the government is not to interfere in any way.” KrisAnne noted that for many decades our nation knew this. Only recently was this distorted.
  • Today even many Christians think separation of church and state means the church is to remain silent.
  • What can one person do? In Scotland in 1637 Jenny Geddes started the Bishops War when she threw a wooden stool at the pulpit and accused her pastor of being a “mouthpiece for the king.” The people fought for freedom of religion as the church had sold out to the government.
  • KrisAnne noted the Pilgrims came fleeing religious oppression vs. seeking religious freedom—this big difference led to their creating state-controlled churches with strict punishments for offences—arrest, imprisonment, beatings, even death.
  • Many Americans think this is a good solution: a government test to see if people are a preferred religion. However, KrisAnne notes, “The sword you put in the hand of government could one day turn on you.” What if we have a Muslim president?
  • KrisAnne quoted founder John Leland: Calling the US a Christian nation projects the general idea that Christianity is the government’s preferred religion and the government merely tolerates all the rest. Leland: “The liberty I contend for is more than toleration.”
  • A second homework piece: Read Frederic Bastiat’s pamphlet, “The Law.”. See it at http://bastiat.org/en/the_law.html Bastiat was a Fench economist who explained why socialism must always degenerate into communism.
  • A staunch advocate for home schooling, KrisAnne noted that every school has a government-mandated curriculum.
  • Her story: Nine years ago when she was teaching the Constitution, and her husband was starting a church (KrisAnne thus was providing their sole income), she was told to stop teaching the Constitution. She refused and was fired by her liberal boss. Her family went from $60,000 to 0 income!
  • Over and over they’ve seen God’s provision.

KrisAnne’s solutions:

  • Scholarships for Christian teachers to teach in Christian schools.
  • She called for business leaders to support pastors who love God more than money and are willing to teach the truth.
  • Liberty First University DVDs so parents and preachers can teach Bible truth. See http://krisannehall.com/index.php/liberty-first-university There you can contribute, take online courses. Check it out!
  • Read KrisAnne’s book Sovereign Duty. Find it here: https://krisannehall.com/index.php/store/books
  • She suggested retirees audit courses at local community colleges and colleges (usually it’s free) and “sign up for the class taught by the most liberal professor in the school. Be the voice of reason in that class.”
  • Get Liberty Counsel’s Matt Staver’s short video for pastors showing them why they don’t need a 501c3. See https://www.lc.org/project/pastors-and-churches
