Many Americans will continue denying that their country is a Christian Nation, as if repeating this opinion can change historic fact. The literature, letters, and other writing from our founding days is gleaned of phrases referring to “God” or other Devine inferences in our schools. Our children are subsequently ignorant of the many events in America’s early history that prove a close relation between church and state, not a separation.
In an attempt to ensure true freedom of religion, unlike the British State that installed a national religion, the founders wrote, “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof.” This was so important to them all that it was written as the very first words of the First Amendment. So, our Congress can never pass a law that says all Americans will be Catholic, or Jewish, or Baptist, etc. But the next part of that sentence HAS been violated, and free exercise of religion has been prohibited from our governments and public schools by our Supreme Court, which is supposed to uphold the Constitution.
How did this happen? Using a LETTER written by Thomas Jefferson, wherein he wrote the words, "wall of separation between church and state" it was construed by some citizens to mean that there should never be intermingling of the two. And so, the Supreme Court prohibited the free exercise of religion in the United States. That occurred in schools in the early 1960s, thanks to the efforts of atheists, and it is an ongoing work to degrade religious belief and reduce the position of the church in our society.
A decade later, in 1973, the Supreme Court legalized abortion. This, too, was another strike at religious belief in the guise of women’s liberation and a woman’s “right” to destroy a life within her. The legal presentation before the Supreme Court in favor of legalization was one of the most deceptive and devious arguments ever heard in that chamber. (See “The Marketing of Evil” by David Kupelian.) Our country has condoned human sacrifice.
America has turned its back on God. Officially. And efforts continue to even remove “In God We Trust” from our currency, to erase every vestige of Divine belief from our eyes and the eyes of future generations. This is the goal of “progressives,” who believe that mankind has developed and advanced beyond any need for religion. Progressives believe that all people need now is more government, and less control of their own liberties.
We are on the brink of revolution. Let those of us who intend to participate pray to God that we will succeed in evicting socialist evil throughout our land, and that we will restore His place in our Nation. This may indeed be an American Crusade.
In George Washington’s inaugural address he stated, “the propitious smiles of Heaven can never be expected on a nation that disregards the eternal rules of order and right which Heaven itself has ordained.” In my lifetime, America has disregarded many of those rules of order, and is even now seeking to “expand” the standards for holy matrimony, contrary to the Bible.
Washington finished his address with these words, “since He has been pleased to favor the American people with opportunities for deliberating in perfect tranquillity, and dispositions for deciding with unparalleled unanimity on a form of government for the security of their union and the advancement of their happiness, so His divine blessing may be equally conspicuous in the enlarged views, the temperate consultations, and the wise measures on which the success of this Government must depend.”
The harbingers are God’s warnings to return to Him. It’s not too late, and it is redemption that He wants of us, not our destruction. Creeping corruption has been spreading over our land so pervasively that today we more resemble Sodom and Gomorrah than 18th or even 19th Century America. Our elected officials have done this, but with our tacit blessing with election and reelection. Corruption is endemic in Washington, D.C., and those tentacles of corruption spread even to our own state houses.
It will not suffice to simply say, “God bless America,” or pray for our future. We must ACT as allowed for in the Declaration of Independence, “it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security,” if not in the voting booth, then by arms.
Today half of Americans are favored by the socialism they vote for, thereby ensuring their continued voting for the same representation in Washington to preserve this largesse. We can either wait for the financial destruction of national bankruptcy to trigger revolt, or we can preempt that calamity and do it now.
Look to Iceland for direction. The people of Iceland took control of their government, banks, and currency. They are now embarking on a promising future with a clean slate and new controls over their government, rather than letting their government control them. It’s time we did the same.
