Apparently, GOD is a dirty word. Muslims want to kill Christians. The ACLU wants to remove GOD from everything. Our schools, our courthouses, our currency. Even college campuses are now exploding with angry students and professors who claim to preach tolerance and diversity all the while spewing forth hate speech against the church. I understand that there are more than just Christians living in this country. Last time I checked they still were the majority. Nevertheless, what the leftists and the ACLU do not seem to care about is that the country that they and those of other faiths live in was founded on the principles of the Christian church.
It was the belief of our forefathers that is was through the grace of GOD that they were given the land and the will to throw off the shackles of the oppressive Church of England and the Monarchy that spawned it. GOD is intricately woven into the very foundation of our Constitution, our laws and for a very long time even our lives. Now it seems the socialist democrats are trying to tear GOD and faith out of every aspect of our lives. Does anyone see a problem in this? Somehow, these purveyors of godlessness have decided that the most effective way of creating change in this country is to tear out its very foundation and hope the building will still stay standing. Many Democrats argue that we are a secular society, and our forefathers were very much about secular government. When our forefathers arrived in the land that would become the United States of America they wrote in the Mayflower Compact that they had made the journey “for ye glorie of God, and advancemente of ye Christian faith.”
One of the worst offenders of Anti-Christian sentiment is our colleges. Yet the greatest of these colleges were also founded on Christian principles. Harvard, founded in 1636 states in their Rules and Precepts written in 1642 that "plainly instructed, and earnestly pressed to consider well, the maine end of his life and studies is, to know God and Jesus Christ which is eternal life.” Another example is Yale founded in 1701 with the primary purpose that “every student shall … know God in Jesus Christ.” Princeton was founded by Evangelical Presbyterians in 1746.
I do not consider myself a very religious person. I do not go to church. I do not donate money to any religious organizations. I do not base my votes for elected officials on their religious viewpoints. Even still, the issue of taking GOD and Jesus out of all aspects of our lives offends me. I cannot imagine raising my children in a country so offended by GOD that speaking his name is near to a punishable offense. Yet it is happening more and more. Every day someone has their rights abused and their beliefs attacked. There are at three high profile cases right now before the Supreme court where students graduating their respective schools were told to cut out any reference to GOD or Jesus from their speeches. All refused, and all were either censored, or foreced to apologize for their faith. These brave young people are suing to try and guarantee that the next generation can still worship freely as was the intention of our forefathers.
The most notorious excuse the Liberals love to point out is "The Seperation of Church and State" which is not stated in the first amendment the way Liberals think it is. The statement "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof;" Simply states that Congress can not create a national religion, nor can they use their powers to prohibit someone from exercising theirs(although any religion is bound to the same principle as all free speech. It can not be used to commit crimes against man or nature, nor shall it be used to incite violence or revolt.) Even Jefferson who famously spoke about the "wall of separation" that the first amendment creates used federal funds to create a program to teach native American Indians about the gospel of Jesus Christ.
I am an AMERICAN and I understand and accept that GOD is an integral part of our foundation, our heritage, and our history. The Liberal do-gooders in this country want you to believe that they are protecting our civil liberties. It is, however painfully clear that their only agenda is to destroy any institution that stands in the way of their new-Communist revolution. The ACLU is at the forefront of this Anti-Christian mindset. Flinging lawsuits and anyone or any institution of the church it can. They have successfully won cases that forced churches to remove nativity scenes from their own lawns, forced government offices to remove all signs of god from their buildings all in the name of "diversity" and "multi-culturalism" If you believe in this country in the slightest do not let them take away our foundation, our faith, our fellowship. and DO NOT let them take Christmas. Jimmy Stewart will be very disappointed in you.
