I don’t know about the rest of you, but never thought that the day would come that Christendom would come under serious assault in this country not by an extreme American leftist group, atheist group, or anti-religious group, but by the government of the United States.
Lets first start off with the astonishing May report in Brietbart.com stating that the U.S military will actually Court Martial any solider who shares his or her Christian faith. Whats even more astonishing is that the report states, “Obama administration Pentagon appointees meeting with anti-Christian extremist Mikey Weinstein to develop court-martial procedures to punish Christians in the military who express or share their faith.” That’s like someone from an atheist group helping develop the laws and procedures for the Boy Scouts of America. But, as sad as it may be to think of such an event, in today’s degrading culture such an event maybe easily accepted. The Establishment Media would only have to colour it under words such diversity or equality. But, that’s not the end of the military’s extremely bizarre religious cultural conversion. In April the U.K Daily Mail reported that U.S Army Reserves training material, “classifies Christians, including both evangelicals and Roman Catholics, as religious extremists, placing them in the same category as skinheads, the Ku Klux Klan, Hamas and Al Qaeda.”
The one thing that I was always raised to be certain of was that America would always be defined by its Christian foundation and principles and that the military would be the most glaring evidence of that just as it has been ever since the America Revolutionary. But so to, I never imagined that the American people would become so detached from the purpose, actions, and behavior of their government.
The orchestrated silent purging of our nations most cherished religious principles and culture doesn’t just stop with the military. Earlier this month a South Carolina High School Valedictorian had to rip up a per-approved speech to talk about his Christian up bringing and recited the Lords Pray to a roaring applause from the graduation audience. In 2009 a sitting federal judge actually banned prayer from government school events in Santa Rosa County, Fla. A Indiana college prohibited playing of the National Anthem at sporting events. And as early as 2005 a FOX News Poll stated that many American, 8 out of 10, see the courts as actually the hand that is pushing Christianity into the shadows and out of the view of the public. Must like when Moses was pushed out the view and consciousness of the public by the Egyptian Pharaoh.
We as a nation have strayed so far into the twilight zone that many of us are even questioning whether are not we are a Christian nation. In a CBS report, “Is U.S A Christian Nation?”, stated that just 77% of respondents called themselves Christian, as compared to 91% in 1948, and that a Newsweek poll stated that just 62 percent of Americans believe America to be a Christian nation. This is about the same time that Mr. O stood in Turkey as the President of the U.S basically denouncing any claim that we are a Christian nation when he said, “We do not consider ourselves a Christian nation or a Jewish nation or a Muslim nation,”… “We consider ourselves a nation of citizens who are bound by ideals and a set of values.” We have becoming a nation with no religious identity according to a Pew Forum on religion and public life. America is no longer the land for free religious expression, especially if you are Christian, as the Heritage Foundation in the Fall of 2010 report called, Religious Liberty and Expression Under Attack: Restoring America’s First Freedoms. In the report it pointedly stated, “All across America, religious institutions and individuals are being subjected to increasing restrictions on their free exercise of religion and freedom of speech—a crackdown that can be seen in a variety of different contexts ranging from employers or health care professionals being required to provide or facilitate abortions against the dictates of their faith to street evangelists and public school students seeking to share their religious viewpoints with others. This rising disregard for religious liberty represents a marked break from the long-standing American tradition of accommodating religious practice and expression that predates the ratification of the Constitution.”
Three questions should be asked by even the most passive observer. Why is this issue getting scant coverage by the American Media? Why is our nation’s religious identity being so brazenly attacked and denigrated with seemingly impunity? Why? And who does it benefit? Though I do not have all of the answers, but many may want to use the excuse of the separation of Church and State Clause in the Constitution. But, the funny thing is that there is no such clause. In fact, the whole convoluted and most miss-construed issue of Separation of Church and State comes not from the U.S Constitution, but the U.S.S.R Constitution of 1922-the former Communist Republic. The great irony is that Jefferson’s noted Separation of Church and State had to do with U.S. government NOT interfering with the religious freedoms of Americans – just as it states in the Constitution, “Congress shall make no law respecting the establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof.”
But so to must we look at the person who heads the Executive Branch of the United States. The person who executes the laws of the federal government and sets statutory policies for the departments under his domain – Mr. Barack Obama. It is not to say that the suppression of Christianity is new in this country, but the veracity and vigorousness of the comprehensive attack that has been unleashed is nothing more than astounding. And one can argue that such an assault is being done with a little too much passion to be done begrudgingly or with any mental reservation. The question needs to be asked how does the fact that Mr. O was raised and heavily influenced by two fathers of Muslim backgrounds and origins and that he spent most of his formative years outside of the Continental United States Of America?
In any regard, the only truth is that the people who do not believe that individuals can govern themselves or that a nation can not be the beacon of prosperity, freedom, and liberty to shine the light on their mass flaws of human injustices and economic ineffectiveness are the ones who will benefit from the demise of America. And that these people can only succeed if we the American people forget, disavow, and or surrender our history, our culture, our customs, our fundamental religious principles, and our identity.
