[Lawyer Ordered To Stop Praying For Help With Trial On Facebook by L.P. Phillips
cbslocal.com Dallas] "Freedom of religion, freedom of speech, the right to a fair trial, and Facebook postings have stirred-up a hornet’s nest in Ellis County.

It starts with Waxahachie lawyer Mark Griffith, who doesn’t mind telling anyone he prays for help before court, during a trial and on Facebook.

It’s the Facebook part that is at issue, another new twist in the odd world that social media has created.

Twice, in separate trials, the Ellis County District Attorney’s office has convinced judges to stop Griffith from posting running commentary of a trial in his prayers on Facebook.

“No lawyer is allowed to make running commentary in the public forum regarding witnesses, the character of witnesses, the opinion of the guilt or innocence of defendants or suspects in criminal cases.” said Patrick Wilson, Ellis County District Attorney. He claims it’s basic legal ethics.

The argument doesn’t hold water with Griffith.

I don't know any Christians whining (your word) about increased censorship and persecution (1 Cor. 12:26; Phil. 1:29, Ac 5:41).

Patrick Jane, you're missing the point. The fact that Christians are the majority and have most of the power etc totally contradicts the ludicrous claim that Christians are being "persecuted " in America.

America is post-Christian (Mt 7:14).

[To a lib'] You all know exactly what you all are doing-- the manipulation is damnable.

They don't overcome (Rev. 2:7) because they can't get over being offended by the gospel or their lot in life (Jn 6:67).

You have never faced persecution in your life and neither have liberals at large.

Why would they? They're headed in the same direction as Satan.
