How many times are we going to allow the godless to dictate where our country is going?
It is time to stop the slide that was started by candidate Obama in 2007. Since that time, it has become more and more apparent that President Obama is not a Christian, regardless of how many different church services he attends for public consumption. He has made it painfully evident that he would side with the Muslims if a war broke out between Christianity and Islam.
It is happening today all around the world. Only it is not a war; it is a slaughter of innocents. And the Obama administration has been quiet even as thousands of Coptic Christians are being defiled and slaughtered in Egypt and other countries we support in the Middle East. When Obama went to the UN to speak, did he utter one word condemning the slaughter of innocent Christians in Muslim countries? NO. He did, however, have the temerity to blame the slaughter in Benghazi on some third rate internet film that was produced some 6 months before the incident in Benghazi, completely ignoring the Muslims who defiled and murdered our Ambassador there. There are two religions that are growing at a rapid rate around the world, not counting mandatory pregnancies. Those two religions are Catholicism and Christianity. There are more than one billion Catholics in the world and almost 700 million Christians. Now we have the defunct Washington Post attempting to dispell the “myth” that the United States of America is a Christian nation.
Charles C. Hayne has written “Dispelling the myth of a ‘Christian nation’” for the Washington Post. The article begins:
Culture warriors, pseudo historians and opportunistic politicians have spent the last several decades peddling the myth that America was founded as a ‘Christian nation.’ The propaganda appears to be working. A majority of the American people (51 percent) believes that the U.S. Constitution establishes a Christian nation, according to the State of the First Amendment survey released last month by the First Amendment Center.
However, what is left out is a firm assumption that America existed as a Judeo-Christian nation long before the Constitution was drafted and enacted into law in 1789-91 when the Bill of Rights was enacted. Also, polls show that some 86% of people in this country believe in a Supreme Being, not counting Muslims.
You can read the article for yourself. I did and found it meandered in and out of the Constitution and the minds of the founders. What is important is that God and the belief in God was the reason the 13 original colonies were founded. The actual break from King George was predicated on the imposition of an unjust tax, but behind it all was the realization of why they left England in the first place. They were indentured and required to worship the Church of England.
The Church of England was founded by the King of England because he disagreed with the Pope’s authority. When he made his religion mandatory, Christians decided to flee and set up their own place to live and prosper; they weathered the oceans and came to America. When they drafted the Constitution, the founding fathers wanted to make sure that no government would ever have the ability to make the people worship anything except what “We The People” wanted to. That is why the ultimate power rests with the people and not the government.
Any government that acts in a tyrannical manner can be removed by the will of the people. Regardless of how powerful or “well liked” a president is, he can be removed from office if he violates the will of the people. That is the beauty of living in a Democratic Republic, which has built-in protections a pure Democracy does not. So when you look around the world for a strong central government, look to see one where the power rests with the people and not the government. It is not enough to have a Democracy; the power has to remain with the people.
If the power remains with the people, then their Constitution will protect them from the Government establishing its own religion or belief system and cajoling, nudging, or demanding its people to believe in what the government says “is best for you”. The absence of belief is atheism. Atheism does not stand for something; it is the absence of something. It is time for our nation to stand up and say ENOUGH IS ENOUGH. Our Constitution protects the rights of the minority. It does not protect the right of the minority to dictate to the overwhelming majority of the country. Tyranny of the minority is even worse than imposing the will of the majority. Our country was founded on Judeo-Christian principles and blessed by God. If you read the Constitution with that in mind, you will be able to see it. It sets us apart from the rest of the world and guarantees that our form of government will prevail. Read it, believe it, and live it.
