The Founding Fathers recognized the central role of God in the world. The basic rights we have are inalienable; they derive from God. The Constitution was put in place to recognize those rights and limit the power of government to interfere with those rights.
Almost all those who came here from the Old World came looking for freedom to worship God in their own way, even the Church of Englanders. They came for freedom OF religion, not freedom FROM religion.
Over the past century, there has been a continuous subversion of our Constitutional Republic. National Socialist politicians, often styled as Progressives, have worked to institute direct payment benefits to insure votes of the non-producers. A rallying cry of the Revolution was “No taxation without representation.” We now have representation without taxation. The National Socialists have worked hard to “educate” people through the public school indoctrination program that this country is a democracy and that everyone has the right to vote. Once you have a democracy, you can buy the votes of the non-producers as long as there is universal suffrage. Once you get there, you go further; all people are equal, not before God, but in use to the country. Thus, all should have the same standard of living (paid for by those who produce). All lifestyles are of equal merit, except of course the lifestyle that created the country and defended it for 200 years. The National Socialists cannot accept God as having a place in the body politic as He has unchanging standards and rules that conflict with the National Socialists’ goals. The state must be supreme.
The fact is that Christians are who made the country. Look at the Declaration of Independence, an unconstitutional document if ever there was one.
We are now in a position where things are illegal even though they are moral and things that are immoral are illegal. The Supreme Court finds group rights in a document which speaks only of individual rights. It finds a right to murder unborn children based on a right to privacy mentioned nowhere in the same document. Yet, the same court has difficulty in finding a right to the means of self defense and defense against a tyrannical government in a document which says the “the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed”
While we still have legal freedom of speech, the Political Correct crowd will make accusations of Hate Speech. Soon, your freedom of association, threatened already will be gone. Right now, you cannot rent to whom you choose, you cannot serve whom you choose. So on and so forth.
Those who are ignorant of history are indeed doomed to repeat it.
Trust in God and Dread Naught.
