This is another attempt to slowly anesthetize all of us into imagining that our country should–or even more ludicrous–always has been, a country devoid of all religion, a country not originally founded on freedom OF religion, but freedom FROM religion. If that was the intention of our founding fathers (which these advocates vehemently proclaim), then how do we explain that at one time, with obvious admiration our cities were named after our Saints, i.e. Santa Monica, St. Paul, St Augustine, and Corpus Christi (literally “Body of Christ”) to name only a few! In order to hide what is self-evident even at first blush, we would have to raze the National Cathedral and the United States Supreme Court building which has Moses, the Ten Commandments, and other references to our religious heritage carved within the very walls (Judeo-Christian ethics/influence only since the 40’s? I don’t think so)! Our nation has exuded, since its formation, the spirit of religious friendliness, not of religious hostility. There are among us Christians who must come to realize that there are many who are rewriting our nation’s history for us–and in it there is no room for God–or for our Savior, Christ Jesus. There is, more and more, a bold and fervid hostility against our faith from atheistic groups that want nothing more than a society that emasculates Christianity into a private home, hush-hush faith, and they have seemingly endless coffers in allies like the ACLU to try to help them try to accomplish it. Unfortunately for them, this is in direct contradiction to and conflict with our right to religious expression, and even more importantly, the direct command of Christ to “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you.” I am all for non-believers having the right not to believe and to openly express their disbelief. Freedom demands it. It’s just that 76% of Americans identify themselves as Christians, and we have those same rights–to believe and openly express our Christian faith and heritage. Freedom that is true freedom demands this, too.
