The word Fundamentalist should be applied to the current version of secular atheism being promoted in the United States. While saying there are no absolutes, it has to be recognized that secularists view that as being absolute. The ACLU, while claiming to protect religious freedom, has actually been removing religious paintings, depictions of the Ten Commandments and other religious symbols from locations where they have been for decades. In the alternative, they have demanded the Nativity be placed with plastic Santas and reindeer, thereby placing it as being equivalent to any other Christmas decoration.
In one town near where I live, it is legal to play religious Christmas music on speakers mounted on storefronts facing sidewalks but illegal to include the words (instrumental only).
Religious freedom has been replaced with an encroachment by others who wish to impose their lifestyle. The most vocal among them ask for tolerance but this ‘tolerance’ is only one way. We must tolerate them but they cannot tolerate us.
But this has been played out before. Demonize the enemy (Christians), make provocative and emotional claims (a Theocracy is right around the corner), embrace a false sense of modernism to “explain” why things have changed ( “Why did things change? It’s the '90’s.”), all the while promoting an agenda that is only about one thing: shaping this country into their image and likeness. We, the secularists, are right and you’re wrong. And we’re going to pass laws to coerce Christians.
The Ambassador is correct. America will have to abandon the campaign to destroy the family. Young human beings will have to be exposed to role models other than gangstas and foul-mouthed comedians/celebrities/TV shows, and shown how to live as self-controlled people in a peaceful community. That hard work and dedication are important. And that religion is a valuable component and a source of practical lessons about living.
