Stranger than Fiction...

I heard it through the grapevine...

A friend of mine thought she heard a news story on the radio this morning that was talking about a Pagan family that was forced to sell their home and move to another neighborhood due to harassment by the civic association where they lived...

She remembered the post about my weird dream that included a scene of us having to move out because our civic association had barred non-Christians from living in our neighborhood...

She thought that she had heard that the civic association in this town was trying to promote the local "city of character" program, and was therefore targeting residents who were not supportive of the religious nature of the program.

She said she listened to the news on and off this morning, and heard nothing else about it.

I have spent some time today doing web searches on keywords that would probably be in the report, and have not found anything.

Did anyone else out there in the blogosphere hear anything about it, or do you think my friend imagined the story? (Sorry sweetie - but you suggested it first :)

I couldn't find a reference to this story anywhere. I suppose my own head must have made it up. Maybe I wasn't fully awake yet, and I was just continuing on with your dream.

Regardless - the fact that we both felt it was true is significant. It means we think this sort of thing is likely to happen. That's a bit scary. Do you agree?

I certainly think it is possible...

Likely? Probably not at this point in time... but, if the political atmosphere doesn't wake up to the serious threats to the separation of church & state - I can envision a future where this might happen a lot!
