84-Year-Old Widow to Be Evicted for Bible Study

 

The following article is not fiction, nor something from the future. This is happening presently. In America. This is real Christian persecution in America. This is real ministers of Satan exerting their evil and lies in our nation among our people and gaining mightily. This is how state and local governments are now operating on a regular basis more and more.

Christianity, God, Jesus, Bible study, true gospel preaching, speaking the truth of the Word of God is now becoming a point of oppression and restriction in America under the guise of made up double-speak contending people merely preaching the gospel, having a voluntary study on God’s Word among adults is now becoming verboten.

Leftist fascism is alive, well and spreading like a California wildfire in the dead of summer among all the walking dead in that lost land.

What you are about to read is true. This is now. In America. And more and more of these cases are appearing by the week.

Where are CNN, MSNBC, ABC, NBC, CBS, The New York Times, The Boston Globe and all the so-called purveyors of news and information about the vital events taking place in our land on these matters?

They never will speak or write a word. Because to do so would betray the master they serve, the agenda they work daily to bring forward.

Where are the truth tellers in our land in these times?

Read the following. Pray for Artis Breau the 84-year-old widow in the article below, pray for the folks at the California Veteran’s Home in Yountville, California. Pray for Lindsey Sin and the people bringing these actions against Artis Breau. Pray for the people of California, pray for every lost soul in darkness, in sin, refusing the truth in our nation. Pray for our government officials both elected and appointed they come out of the darkness and into the Light, the Truth, the Way and the Life. what we can do, what we are instructed to do in the Word of God is to pray for those who are lost, living in unbelief, living sinful lives, confused, serving this world and refusing the truth.

Pray that the people of our nation repent and turn back to God while He blesses them with breath and opportunity.

Pray that the rising fascism in America be razed to rubble as the walls of Jericho were. All things are possible with God. Do not ever limit or deny the power of the Spirit of God Almighty.

Pray in fervent faithfulness to Jesus Christ our Lord.

84-Year-Old Widow to Be Evicted for Bible Study

Artis Breau is an 84-year-old widow of a vet and is about to be thrown out into the street. Her crime? Leading a Bible study.

Her husband served in the Merchant Marine and then in World War II as a member of the Army’s 82nd Airborne Division. He also served in the Air Force during the Korean War. Artis herself served in the Pentagon during the Korean conflict as a civilian in the Office of the Chief of Staff of the Army.

Artis lives in a California Veteran’s Home in Yountville, where she has been living for nine years. But she may not be living there for long.

She has been threatened with eviction (or “involuntary discharge,” which means they are tossing her to the curb in her pajamas). She has been accused of “elder abuse, emotional abuse, and otherwise illegal” behavior. What atrocious behavior did this widow engage in to become such a menace to senior society? Has she been yelling at other residents, starting arguments with them about jello, stealing their checkers, or acting like a crazy person? No, no, no and no.

What she has been doing is leading Bible studies with interested residents. Participation in her study is purely voluntary. Nobody is forced or even pressured to attend. If residents would like to attend Artis’ weekly Bible studies, in a common area of the Home, they are perfectly welcome to do so. If they don’t want to, they are perfectly free to stay home and watch “Jeopardy.”

What else has Artis done to become someone from whom senior citizens must be protected for their own good? She’s been talking with willing residents about Christianity’s promise of life after death, which might be a topic of interest to folks with limited longevity.

Now Artis has been leading this Bible study for nine years, which might lead one to expect that if she was a threat to the mental health of other residents, somebody would have noticed it by now.

A Bible study last September led to a discussion about heaven and hell. Imagine that, studying the Bible and coming across passages that deal with man’s eternal destiny! Who coulda seen that coming? It’s like going to Chuck-E-Cheese and being offended to find Ski-Ball games on the premises.

This discussion about eternity apparently caused one man to lose sleep. Well, he isn’t the first man to lose sleep thinking about his relationship with God – or the lack thereof – and he certainly won’t be the last. One could argue she did the man a favor by prompting him to spend some time thinking about life after death before it’s too late.

She was suspended from the roster of voluntary chaplains after the September study but was allowed to continue the Bible study through March, until the “investigation” into her nefarious activities was concluded. Mind you, she essentially had been providing a chapel service for residents who are too elderly or mobility-impaired to make it to the conventional chapel services offered under the auspices of the Home.

But she was told in an alarming communication from a CalVet attorney that her Bible studies were in violation of prior directives. It’s worth noting that there are no “prior directives” at all. They are, as attorney Brad Dacus said, “non-existent.” They’re making stuff up as they go along.

The inaptly-named Lindsey Sin, the deputy secretary of Women Veterans Affairs at CalVet, released a statement about the investigation. The conclusion that these junior G-men reached was that she had been endangering “the safety, security, and well-being” of the residents, which is their “top priority,” and would be expelled if she didn’t stop offering her Bible study immediately. If the home is so consumed with the well-being of residents, what about Artis’ safety, security, and well-being if she finds herself in the parking lot in nothing but her nightgown?

Matthew Reynolds of the Pacific Justice Institute, who is representing Artis, said,

“CalVet’s treatment of this widow is shameful. Throughout this process, we have been deeply disturbed not only by the lack of constitutional guidelines, ineptitude, and lack of due process in the investigation, but even more by the notion that discussing religious views on the eternal state of the soul is somehow elder abuse or emotional abuse. Our client’s husband fought for his country to preserve the freedoms now being threatened by CalVet. Our veterans deserve better.”

Brad Dacus, the president of PJI, called the attack on Artis’ exercise of her religious convictions “shocking” and “deeply disturbing.” Artis, he went on to add, “isn’t fighting just for herself, but for the Gospel and for the residents who are unable to fight for themselves against the State’s attempted intimidation.”

CalVet’s actions are blatantly in violation of the First Amendment of the Federal Constitution, which restrains the federal government from “prohibiting the free exercise” of religion. That’s clearly what CalVet is seeking to do to Artis. They are also stepping all over her constitutional rights to freedom of speech and freedom of association.

The bureaucrats at CalVet are also in violation of the constitution of their own state. Article 1, Sec. 4 of the California state constitution lists the following as “rights” for Californians:

SEC. 4.  Free exercise and enjoyment of religion without

discrimination or preference are guaranteed.  This liberty of

conscience does not excuse acts that are licentious or inconsistent with the peace or safety of the State.

Whatever else Artis may be doing here, it is beyond ludicrous to think that she is acting in a “licentious” way or endangering the “peace” or “safety” of the state of California.

President Andrew Jackson once pointed to a Bible, and said to his friend, “That book, Sir, is the rock on which the Republic rests.” Artis Breau knows that. But it looks like nobody in the government of California has a clu
