Supreme Court Affirms Jesus In America
In the May 6th newspaper, buried deep on page sixteen, was the most important story in my sixty five years on this earth. The headline of this story was “High court upholds prayers at town council meetings”. The headline should have been “ Supreme Court Affirms Jesus in America”, because this is what the court did in it’s 5-4 decision. The five Conservative judges upheld the right to begin local town council meetings with Christian Payers declaring them in line with national traditions. The four Liberal judges voted no to America being a traditional Christian nation.
This decision points to the problems we face as a nation. Conservatives stand for Christianity while Liberals stand for anything but Christianity. Liberals believe in same sex marriage, abortion, no prayers in public schools, no nativity scene on courthouse land, no Ten Commandments displayed in our court rooms, and on and on it goes. Liberals attack our Christian Traditions sighting a well established Liberal myth that there is a “separation clause” that they say exists in our Constitution.
The only thing our Constitution restricts “separates” is the ability of the Federal government declaring that a certain religion is the religion of the United States, and all Americans must worship under this State Religion. Congress has never passed, nor can it ever pass, such a law under our Constitution. The free exercise of religion, guaranteed to us in the Constitution, is what this Supreme Court decision upheld. We are a Christian nation, but not because Congress has passed a law declaring it so. We are a Christian nation because the vast majority of Americans believe in Jesus as their savior and freely follow his teachings.
But this can change, if we do not expose the Liberal Left for what it stands for.
Church bells rang throughout the new thirteen States on April 30, 1789 when George Washington took the oath of office as our first President to begin a new way to govern people, in freedom. Those thousands of church bells were proclaiming that the American people were followers of Jesus. We were a Christian nation from the very beginning.
George Washington said this to the new nation in his Inaugural Address, “ Such being the impressions under which I have, in obedience to the public summons, repaired to the present station, it would be peculiarly improper to omit in this first official act my fervent supplications to that Almighty Being who rules over the universe, who presides in the councils of nations, and whose providential aids can supply every human defect, that His benediction may consecrate to the liberties and happiness of the people of the United States a Government instituted by themselves for these essential purposes, and may enable every instrument employed in its administration to execute with success the functions allotted to his charge. In tendering this homage to the Great Authority of every public and private good, I assure myself that it expresses your sentiments not less than my own, nor those of my fellow-citizens at large less than either.”
Washington’s address is full of these references to God, and His hand in guiding our nation to be a force for good in this world. Evil in this world is trying to change us from that which founded us. Example: This story was not the headline on the front page, it was buried on page sixteen. Why? The answer to this “Why” is the answer to the Force working against our nation. Liberalism!
