“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness …”
– Declaration of Independence
Though it has been said many times – much more eloquently than I can say it – America’s first foundational premise is that there is a Creator-God, and it is this Creator-God who alone gives mankind his rights, not human government. Governments that grant them (Such as the United Nations) can also take them away. But God-given rights take precedence over any government. This is the entire basis of our Declaration of Independence and Constitution.
This is why our founding fathers made such statements as the following:
We have no government armed with the power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion … Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.
– John Adams, 2nd U.S. president)
It can not be emphasized too strongly or too often that this great nation was founded, not by religionists, but by Christians; not on religions, but on the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
– Patrick Henry
… Providence has given to our people the choice of their rulers, and it is the duty as well as the privilege and interest of our Christian nation to select and prefer Christians for their rulers. National prosperity can neither be obtained nor preserved without the favor of Providence.
– John Jay, first chief justice of the U.S. Supreme Court
Our laws and our institutions must necessarily be based upon the teachings of the Redeemer of mankind. It is impossible that it should be otherwise; and in this sense and to this extent, our civilization and our institutions are emphatically Christian. No purpose of action against religion can be imputed to any legislation (State or National) because this is a religious people … this is a Christian nation.
– U.S. Supreme Court, 1892
We are a religious people whose institutions presuppose a Supreme Being … When the state encourages religious instruction or cooperates with religious authorities by adjusting the schedule of public events to sectarian needs; it follows the best of our traditions. For it then respects the religious nature of our people and accommodates the public service to their spiritual needs. To hold that it may not would be to find in the Constitution a requirement that the government show a callous indifference to religious groups. That would be preferring those who believe in no religion over those who do believe … We find no Constitutional requirement which makes it necessary for government to be hostile to religion and to throw its weight against efforts to widen the effective scope of religious influence.
– U.S. Supreme Court, 1952
In the light of our history and founding principles, how dare such cursed organizations as the ACLU pretend to represent the meaning of the U.S. Constitution or interpret its intent.
Religion, particularly Christianity, is not only embedded in our founding documents, but also established by consistent historical profession by our government institutions.
Even the current decisions of our Supreme Court on the myth of separation of Church and State are clearly out of step with the established historical views of the Supreme Court. Most of the current Supreme Court justices are not interpreting law, but seeking to rewrite our most sacred and important foundational premise of law – that they issue from our Creator-God, to whom virtually all of our great leaders of the past appealed publicly.
Why is it that George Washington instituted a day of Thanksgiving to God?
Why is it that the U.S. Congress in 1895 passed the law to have “In God We Trust” placed on all our currency”?
Why is it that it is written over the entrance of the Supreme Court building, “In God We Trust”?
Why has it been from the beginning that presidents and other national and state leaders are sworn in with their hand on the Christian Bible”? Why do they close the oath with, “So help me God”?
The latest obscenity that has been attempted by a small minority of anti-God citizens – with the help of the ACLU’s continued crusade to stamp out all public expression of faith in God – is a situation in North Carolina and Georgia. Grieving families of loved ones killed in automobile crashes place crosses along the highways at the place where they were killed.
The anti-God group is protesting that placing a cross on government owned right of way constitutes a violation of the “separation of Church and State.”
What is next for these people? Will they go to government cemeteries for our military, such as Arlington National Cemetery, and demand that all crosses be removed from the graves of our fallen heroes?
What is it going to take for the vast majority of God-fearing Americans to wake up and say, “Enough is enough”? We need to make it known loudly and clearly, religion is our foundational heritage. If you want to live here, welcome. But if you want to remove the very thing without which our great country will self-destruct, Get out!
As the second U.S. president, John Adams, clearly warned: “… Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.”
The fact that there has been a calamitous decline of both of the above in our nation is the reason we are having so much trouble trying to govern these days. It is the reason our courts are overloaded and jails overcrowded.
Wake up Americans. God is giving us His last warnings. Return to the founding principles of our forefathers before there is nothing to salvage.
