Every time I write, I always tell myself that this is the last one, and I am sure after some read this they will say, “I hope this one is the last one she ever writes.”
Over the last few years, I have listened to all kinds of comments and opinions and for the most part have not said too much, but I have received so much inspiration over the past few years that I can’t hold it back any longer.
I grew up in a family full of FDR Democrats, and I heard about all the fine qualities and benefits of being a Democrat in the United States of America. But the Democratic Party I see today is not the Democratic Party of Franklin D. Roosevelt, or even the Democratic Party of Bill Clinton.
We think when we join a political party it’s about the candidate who is running for office, but it is not. It’s about the party platform and what that party stands for. When you decide to join a political party, you are making a covenant with that party, and you are agreeing to that party’s platform whether you realize it or not. The Democratic Party I see today is not the Democratic Party I knew growing up. It has changed during the Obama Administration.
We hear about a war going on in America, and it is called “The War on Women” – but I would like to tell you about the real war that is going on: the war against your religious liberties and the very foundations this nation was built on. Organizations like the American Humanist Association, the American Civil Liberties Union, the Freedom from Religion Foundation, the Secular Coalition for America and the Military Religious Freedom Foundation are at work every day doing their best to remove God and especially Jesus Christ from every aspect of public life.
These organizations use fear, threats and intimidation against those who want to pray at school or at their city and county meetings. They are trying to remove every cross from public view from coast to coast, and every sign of Christianity, from nativity scenes to scripture verses.
If the Church chooses to be uninformed or quiet concerning this, don’t be surprised if they come knocking on the Church doors demanding all church steeples be removed from public view. And if we do not speak up and be good stewards of the freedom of religion granted to us by our Creator and our founding fathers, it will not end there.
There is also a war against traditional marriage and the life of the unborn. It seems the right to contraception is more important to some than the right to life of the unborn, marriage between a man and a woman, and religious liberty. What has happened to this country? What would George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, or FDR say about America today?
What about you? What do you say? Is our nation heading in the direction that you want to pass on to your children and grandchildren? It’s time to wake up before we no longer recognize this country. Please don’t stay home on Election Day, get out and vote! This election may well define America’s future. Pray for our country. We need God’s help more now than we ever have before.
