“ Whereas it is the duty of all nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey his will, to be grateful for his benefits, and humbly to implore his protection and favor,” Mathew? Mark? Luke? The Pope? Not quite, these were the right wing religious ramblings of our first President, George Washington. The God, Mr. Washington was referring wasn’t some random higher power, of his choosing, or some insignificant spiritual philosophy. No, our first President was referencing the very same Lord that sent his only son to die for our sins.
Apparently, the founding fathers affinity for Christian values and divine ideology is a fact that has eluded the modern progressive, or maybe it’s just conveniently overlooked. A few weeks back, President Obama declared, “America is not a Christian nation” John Adams, who said, “Our constitution was made only for a moral and religious people.” would probably disagree with Obama, strongly, as would the majority of founders. Who gave Mr. Obama the right to suggest that this is anything but a Christian nation? Oh yes, we did.
If you are under any illusion that the battle for America’s soul is getting near, your dead wrong, because it’s already here. The question is, “What now?” Academia continues to absorb more and more of the secular progressives social agenda, indoctrinating our children into the godless gay and lesbian world view. Now what? Samuel Adams said, “He who made all men hath made the truths necessary to human happiness obvious to all.” The truth is, the further these indignant secular progressives take us down the road to moral degradation, the closer we become to a society that no longer holds itself accountable to anything more divine than a bloated government.
What we are witnessing is the prelude to oppression and persecution, the Christian way of life, thus the American way of life, and it’s being obliterated. Earlier this week Taliban executed two Christians in Pakistan, who wouldn’t subscribe to Islam. It seems that Christians were peacefully protesting some anti-Christian slogans (graffiti) , when the attackers decided to go door to door shouting, “You infidels have to convert to Islam or die.”. When the Christians resisted, they were murdered.
Ten years ago, we would have never imagined a Christian losing the Miss America pageant for her beliefs, yet we will sit and say nothing. Ten years from now, when Christians are murdered for their beliefs, what will we say. Must we let this escalate any longer? Christian persecution is here. Millions of our Christian brothers and sisters are slaughtered around the globe, and it’s OK. In the 90’s over in Bosnia, when Muslims were being murdered, the world could not sleep at night. Milosevic, was hunted and tried for war crimes, progressives gathered in the streets and bought their little bumper stickers, to ease their troubled hearts. Where are the bumper stickers for the persecuted Christians in Orissa?
“ God governs in the affairs of man. And if a sparrow cannot fall to the ground without his notice, is it probable that an empire can rise without His aid? We have been assured in the Sacred Writings that except the Lord build the house, they labor in vain that build it. I firmly believe this. I also believe that, without His concurring aid, we shall succeed in this political building no better than the builders of Babel”
