Ramesh C. Reddy
Have any of you been ridiculed for your religious beliefs?
I know that I have been!
Have any of you been persecuted for your religious beliefs?
I know that I have been!
Ridicule and persecution can come in different ways. For some, it
could be losing their job, losing their lives, losing their
reputations, etc. It is not a fun feeling to be at the receiving end
but we should never, ever give in to people or the government who
want to trample your religious rights.
As a follower of Christ, I never let peoples' ridicule,
ostracization, or even publications against me to stop me. On the
contrary, if I held to a belief that was biblical, I would stand on
that belief without giving into anyone. It did not matter to me
whether they were professors, students, journalists, managers, etc.
To be accepted by others, I never sacrificed my love for the Lord
Jesus. My love for Jesus had to be paramount.
Did it make life easy for me?
Not necessarily, but I wanted to share my views from an Evangelical
Biblical perspective where following the Word of God and Jesus
Christ was paramount. With that in mind, I wanted people to know
about Jesus and the Bible, about law and morality, so I took action
in my classes and in my writings.
The experiences I share with you are mostly from when I was a
One day I met a former instructor of
mine who told me something to the effect that these days no one
participated in class like I did. The class had to do with law &
morality. Whether it was concerning abortion, homosexuality, etc, I
up against abortion, homosexuality, etc defending morality even if I
was the only student speaking against them because I wanted to take
a stand. My stand was based on Biblical principles. These days we
are so afraid of 'what other people would say or think of us', 'are
we politically correct' etc, even if we are speaking the Truth from Scripture in love. That is
not taking a stand. Let us be BC (Biblically Correct) than PC
In Philosophy class, I was asked to write a paper,
"If you could be invisible and no one could see
what you do, how would you live your life?"
I got a C on the paper because I used the Bible as my source of
morality to state invisible or visible would not change my way of
living because God still watches everything I do and I am
responsible to Him.
"For God is closely watching you, and he weighs carefully everything
you do." (Proverbs 5:21, TLB)
In poetry class, I wrote poems called 'Bible Academy I', 'Bible
Academy II: Armour of God', and 'Bible Academy III: Fruit of
For the Pitt News, I wrote Evangelical
columns against homosexuality and different issues from a biblical
perspective while exhibiting the love of Christ. My column on
homosexuality was titled, "With love homosexuality can be cured!".
It broke the number of letters to the editor and because of my
Evangelical columns, I was told that I was the most hated person on
campus. Showing the love of Christ through my writings made many
still hate me because I was giving them the Word of God and ways for
Biblical living that they felt were outdated. So, anti-Ramesh
columns were printed in the Pitt News where eventually a moratorium
was put on anti-Ramesh columns. It did not stop me from sharing
Evangelical columns. It all came to an end when a letter to the
editor ostracized the Pitt News for publishing my Evangelical
columns stating, 'If he wants to publish Evangelical columns, let
him write for a Christian newspaper'. The
Pittsburgh Standard came and asked me to join their staff.
Later, I was able to get the rights to the paper to run it online
from a Biblical perspective.
When I went to football games and it was broadcast on ABC, my sign
would be 'All Believe Christ'; if it was broadcast on CBS, my sign
would be 'Christ Brings Salvation'; if it was broadcast on NBC, my
sign would be 'Now Believe Christ'.
one game, I even wore a T-shirt with a poem I wrote that stated,
Ramesh is my name
Serving the Lord is my game
Christ did not come for fame
But to save you and me from the flame
give Him a start
By giving Him your heart
So Satan's fiery arrows you can dart
And Jesus can do His part.
I was definitely ridiculed and made fun of!
What I have gone through in those days is nothing compared to what
religious people have gone through during the Obama-Biden
administration. There was a terrible assault on their religious
liberties and freedom.
So even though, I despised Trump's attitude, I knew he would be a
tranformational leader that put policies to protect the unborn and
religious liberties. With my nose closed, I voted for Trump in 2016
as the lesser of two evils.
When Trump became the 45th president of the United States he did not
disappoint! 'Religious rights reassured; religious rights restored'
became the hallmark of his administration.
The persecutions Christians faced because of the Obama-Biden
administration throughout the USA and the killings they faced
throughout the world from ISIS, etc changed with the Trump
administration. Trump administration cared more for religious
liberty and freedom than any administration other than the Reagan
administration, I can think of.
Do we want to move forward with religious liberty or backward with
Electing Trump-Pence will take us
forward with religious liberty and freedom while electing
Biden-Harris will take us backward. I
kid you not! You have to look no further than the Democratic
National Convention where they rarely wanted to even use the word
'God'. They eliminated God from the 'Pledge of the Allegiance' too.
Is it a Biden-Harris ticket you want just because you hate Trump's
I hope not! The previous two articles will share on personality and
promises in the side bar!
If Biden did not stop the persecution of Christians by ISIS which
included horrible deaths, during the Obama administration, what
makes you think he will stop things now?
If Biden took money from China, what makes you think he will be hard
The Trump administration has already shown what they have done to
restore religious liberty and freedom throughout the world since
When I see the accomplishments, my prayer is more and more people
would vote for the Trump-Pence ticket now through Tues, Nov 03,
The Family Research Council researched
all the Trump administrations accomplishments at FRCAction.org from
which I will focus on religious liberty and religious freedom for

devices." (EF19L01.pdf from Family Research Council)

"On November 07, , HHS finalized its two regulations to

and abortion-causing drugs and devices."
"On December 26, , DOJ filed an amicus brief with the Supreme
Court defending a publicly-displayed cross-shaped veteran's memorial
that had been challenged as a violation of the Establishment Clause.
This position is representative of the Trump administation's
orginalist approach to the Constitution concerning First Amendment
rights and other issues. Such an approach results in legal analysis
that interprets the law rather than injecting policy preferences
"On January 18, , HHS notified
California that its law requiring pregnancy resource centers to post
notices about how to obtain an abortion violated the pro-life Weldon
and Coates-Snowe Amendments. This marks the first time that the

priorities." (EF19L01.pdf from Family Research Council)

discrimination complaints involving hospital policies that

The first involved a Maryland hospital's policy that denied a new
mother's request to have her son baptized because she had tested

policy that prohibited a Catholic priest from administering last
rites to a COVID-19 positive patient who was in an end of life
situation. Both policies have been updated to ensure that religious
freedom is not diminished at the expense of public health policies."
When I have read everything the Trump administration has done for
religious liberty and freedom, I am just awestruck and reminded of
King Cyrus from the Bible. King Cyrus
did so much for the Jews. President Trump
has done so much for religious freedom. Just as the Lord Jesus used
King Cyrus to help the Jews, I believe the Lord Jesus is using Trump
to help with religious liberty and freedom in the USA and across the
Isn't that exciting?
You can continue the religious liberties and freedoms of Americans
and people all over the world by voting for President Trump this
Tues, Nov 03, 2020. President Trump did what even Obama-Biden
administration could not do, that is weakening and almost erasing
Don't let everything that has been accomplished erased by a
Biden-Harris ticket. You can stop that! Yes, you can! Let your vote
count if you have not voted yet.
Don't waste your
vote and sit out this election as some who resist
Trump want you to do.
Trump and his administration have been
the most advocate for religious liberties and freedom!
In a 4 days, I don't know if the Lord will be pleased to give
Trump another 4 years or will remove
him from power. I pray the Lord will keep him in power only if it is
"For promotion and power come from nowhere on earth, but only from
God. He promotes one and deposes another." (Psalm 75:6-7, TLB)
What does it mean for Trump this election of 2020?
That is up to the Lord! If the Lord wants him to win, he will win.
If the Lord wants him to lose, he will lose. Whatever the outcome,
He allows it for His purposes. I hope it would please the Lord to
allow him to win because of many of his polices especially regarding
the unborn and religious freedom, but that is up to the Lord.
The Lord uses His people to accomplish His means. He wants us to do our part and leave the the results in the
Will you join me in voting for Trump to protect religious liberties
and religious freedom?
It is important to remember that voting for
Trump does not mean you approve of his personality but you
stand with those that are for religious liberty and freedom.
What do I say to those that say that Trump is a con-artist who is
duping the Evangelical community to get their votes as a wolf in
Actions speak louder than words for me. I see what
Trump has done for religious liberty
and freedom and so
have you in this article.
Even if Trump has been doing everything
for his selfish gain including pleasing the Evangelical community
with his policies, I am reminded of the Scripture passage that talks
about the Gospel going out.
"Some, of course, are preaching the Good News because they are
jealous of the way God has used me. They want reputations as
fearless preachers! And some preach to make me jealous,
thinking that their success will add to my sorrows here in jail! But
whatever their motive for doing it, the fact remains that the Good
News about Christ is being preached, and I am glad." (Philippians
1:15, 17-18, TLB)
In the same way, whatever people say Trump's
motives are, the fact of the matter is that
Trump has been the most vocal protector
of religious liberty and religious freedom for Evangelical
Christians, Muslims, etc here in America and all over the world.
In closing, I want to say, "Unless the Lord
builds the house, our toiling is in vain!" (Psalm 127:1, TLB)
Trump will only win if the Lord allows him to win! Let us pray for
Trump, doing our part and vote for him leaving the results in the
Lord's precious hands!
Reddy's Right Rhetoric takes you into the
world of religious liberties and religious freedom where religious
rights reassured became religious rights restored!
