I must confess that I am concerned and dismayed at the direction our Nation has taken in the course of the last 4 decades. We have been created equal by God and hold certain inalienable rights, however, those rights have been stripped from the majority and have been handed to the minority in our time. I love America and pray for America daily. I pray for our President, Congress, Senate, Supreme Court, Pentagon, Governors, County officials, City of Niceville officials and well as individuals involved in our Government. I am commanded to do so in the Bible. I do not have to agree with them or the direction they take our Nation, State, County or City, but I must and do pray for them.
See 1 Tim.2:1-6 were we are told to pray "For Kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty." Proverbs 29:2 states, "When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice: but when the wicked beareth rule, the people mourn." What if the righteous are not in authority and yet the righteous are in the majority? Then you have exactly what we have occurring in America. The Minority are in rule! This nation is now under the control of the so-called "Politically Correct."
I will use the matter of Public Prayer as an example. Ted Raymond in his article June 24, 2000, "Prayer is best kept private" states, "The Supreme Court got it right this week with its decision reaffirming that prayer in public schools must be private." He then predicts that it will cost big bucks for a school district to violate the Courts ruling. Among other things, he states "The attempt to impose a groups religious views upon an even mildly heterogeneous population inevitably leads to big trouble..." and then gives three examples that have nothing to do with the problem we have in America. Then he states, "Me, Im going to silently voice my prayers that the militant religious faction hereabouts doesnt gain sway enough to influence local schools or governments to ignore the Supreme Court ruling. Because its going to cost me- and you- money that could be spent more wisely."
I have an idea! If all the Christian teachers and faculty, and all the Christian students, players, coaches, cheerleaders, and parents were to stand up and say "If we cant have public prayer before our game, we will not be here; we will not cheer; we will not play; we will not operate the concession stand. Let the ones who are left play the game, cheer, and sell at the concessions." If ever enough Genuine, Saved Americans realize what is happening and stand up, we will turn the forces of evil and reclaim America for Jesus Christ. Mr. Ted Raymonds last statement shows the inconsistency of the minority view:
"The private practice of religion can be a wonderful, steadying influence in ones lifeand thereby benefit societybut trying to impose it publicly can only lead to conflict." I think there should be a conflict when 3000 people at a ball game want to have public prayer and 300 do not. Who is being imposed upon? Dont you liberal folks get it?
Look up "Democracy" in your dictionary. Websters 1828 states, "Government by the people; a form of government, in which the supreme power is lodged in the hands of the people collectively, or in which the people exercise the powers of legislation." Winston Churchill said, "A fanatic is one who cant change his mind and wont change the subject." Stand up Christian! Its your time to shine. Dont change your mind and dont change the subject until the subject is changed!
On this past Sunday morning, one of my Church members handed me a six page mailing received by a neighbor from the ACLU. The neighbor has no idea how their family got on the mail list of ACLU. It was dubbed as a "NATIONAL CITIZENS SURVEY" on the subject of MORALITY! The Executive Director of the ACLU claims not everyone is for MORALITY and "that a very loud and very dangerous bunch has tried to claim that word for its own over the past few years. And you know who they are, too. Pat Robertson. Jesse Helms. Pat Buchanan. They want to use government power to tell you how to live your life. Theyve whined about the moral decay of our society. Theyve said people shouldnt be allowed to make their own sexual choices. Theyve tried to have the government force particular religious views down our childrens throats in public school....And along the way, theyve so corrupted the meaning of the word morality that most Americans have forgotten what a moral country really is. That morality is about how a country treats its people. Even worse, theyve gotten themselves so entrenched in the corridors of power that theyve successfully begun to remake our countryyour country and minein the image of this deceitful brand of morality theyve fabricated and are trying to sell." One look at what the Supreme Court has handed down to the American people will prove who is entrenched.
Folks, I cannot reprint all the letter but it is obvious that the ACLU is trying to redefine "MORALITY" to mean how a government treats individuals rather than how individuals treat God and His Word. He lists as examples the civil rights of the 50s and 60s; the lack of choice for women wanting to terminate a pregnancy; gays (sodomites) having to live in fear and silence; the disabled living in loneliness and frustration over the lack of education and employment opportunities. Mr. Glasser states , "when our nation looks back on what it allowedthe kind of "morality" it legally blessed during those years-- it shouldnt be proud and nostalgic at all. It should be ashamed! We should be proud of having changed all that in the 1960s" End of Quote.
He goes on to accuse those who are "Waving their flag of morality" as being "false prophets." He states that they have targeted the checks and balances in the Constitution, the ability of the federal courts to enforce the Bill of Rights and that these "False Prophets" want to give Congress the ability to overrule Federal and State court decisions by a simple majority voteincluding those of the Supreme Court. He states, "If they succeed, this amendment would make the federal courts completely subservient to Congressthe very excess the Constitutions checks and balances were meant to guard against!" NOW, WOULDNT THAT BE SHAMEFUL? JUST THINK! THE SUPREME COURT HAVING TO ANSWER TO THE ELECTED REPRESENTATIVES OF THE PEOPLE RATHER THAN THE IMMORAL MINORITY WHICH IS TRYING TO PUSH ITS IMMORALITIES DOWN THE MAJORITIES THROATS! It is assumed that a Politician wins an election of the majority of his constituents agreeing with his stand on the issues and it would be expected that he would honor his conviction in that Congress. The liberal establishment knows it can not win the majority on true moral issues in the proper, intended course of our Constitution, therefore, they go through our corrupted court system.
For example. Roe v. Wade nullified the abortion laws of forty nine states. The Founding Fathers never intended "We The People" to be ruled by the Courts and intended the Bill of Rights to apply only to the Government. Ps. 9:17 "The Wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God." PRAY FOR AMERICA!
