Do you know the real story behind Juneteenth or the true essence of the 13th amendment's role in ending slavery? Join us as we debunk popular misconceptions and highlight the unfortunate reality of information control. We dive into how the spread of factually correct information has been met with opposition, masking the truths of our history.  But that’s not all. We delve into an incredible story that’s unfolding in Addison, Texas. A church, established by former slaves, is now at the center of a property rights and religious liberties dispute. The Wessons, a resilient family dedicated to their faith, have been tirelessly negotiating to acquire a special use permit for their church. Yet, their efforts have been repeatedly rejected by the Addison City Council. We dissect the implications of their struggle, reflecting on the Texas Religious Freedom Restoration Act and the United States Religious Land Use and Institutionalized Persons Act. Joining us for this compelling discussion is Jeremy Dys from First Liberty, who sheds light on the ongoing case and the importance of understanding the Constitution and its principles. We take a deep dive into the Religious Freedom Restoration Act of 1993 and the Religious Land Use and Institutionalized Persons Act of 2000, exploring their sponsors and significance. You might be surprised to hear was in support of religious liberty just a couple decades ago. We urge you to listen in, as we explore the intersection of faith, culture, and property rights. Let’s challenge our understanding of religious liberty laws, property rights, and the basic principles of the Constitution. Tune in, and let’s unravel these crucial issues together. Support the show
