America: Graduating From God? (Part 2)

Comment

Last week, I discussed a series of evidences about how God is being omitted from American life, culture and politics. This week, I will detail the No. 1 advocate for a godless society: our president.

First, even during his campaign for the presidency, Barack Obama sarcastically belittled America's Judeo-Christian heritage and degraded its adherents with trite remarks typical of any atheistic antagonist: "Whatever we once were, we are no longer a Christian nation"; "the dangers of sectarianism are greater than ever"; "religion doesn't allow for compromise"; "the Sermon on the Mount (is) a passage that is so radical that it's doubtful that our own Defense Department would survive its application"; and "to base our policymaking on such commitments (as moral absolutes) would be a dangerous thing." (See the YouTube video "Barack Obama On The Importance Of A Secular Government.")

Second, President Obama denied America's rich Judeo-Christian heritage before the eyes and ears of other countries when he publicly declared in Turkey on April 6, 2009, "We do not consider ourselves a Christian nation." (Who are the "we" to whom he refers? Would our former presidents agree with his "we"?)

Third, in countless speeches over the past year, he has sympathized with and supported pro-Islamic culture, theology and practice. The New York Times recently published a multiple-page report on how the "White House quietly courts Muslims in (the) U.S."

Fourth, Obama emphatically declared as president-elect that "only government" is our savior. By advocating such, the federal government vies for divine omnipotence and deliverance, which America's Founders understood to be the Creator's roles.

It was only a matter of time before such wayward power sought to control even churches. A clear example of this came out just this past month, through Obama's faith-based initiative committee recommendations. The federal government is seeking not only to minimize the language preachers use through politically correct hate-crime laws but also to alter the messages they preach, from saving souls to saving the earth. Obama's faith-based council specifically recommends "bringing the power of 370,000 houses of worship across the country to the fight of climate change by greening buildings and promoting environmental stewardship in their congregations."

Lastly, President Obama has turned a blind eye and a deaf ear to anti-Judeo-Christian issues, such as the Army's rescinding of Franklin Graham's invitation to the Pentagon's National Day of Prayer event, atheists' lawsuits to remove the national motto ("In God We Trust") from the walls of the new Capitol Visitor Center in Washington, D.C., the building of a mosque right next to New York's ground zero and the American Civil Liberties Union's disposal of memorial crosses for veterans in the Mojave Desert and at Mount Soledad.

Ben Franklin could have been speaking before the president and Congress today when he gave these words at the Constitutional Convention: "In the beginning of the contest with Great Britain, when we were sensible of danger, we had daily prayer in this room for the divine protection.

Our prayers, sir, were heard, and they were graciously answered. All of us who were engaged in the struggle must have observed frequent instances of a superintending providence in our favor. To that kind providence we owe this happy opportunity of consulting in peace on the means of establishing our future national felicity. And have we now forgotten that powerful friend? Or do we imagine that we no longer need his assistance? I have lived, sir, a long time, and the longer I live the more convincing proof I see of this truth, that God governs in the affairs of men. And if a sparrow cannot fall to the ground without his notice, is it probable that an empire can rise without his aid?"

These are three questions every Washington politician in particular needs to answer: "And have we now forgotten that powerful friend? Or do we imagine that we no longer need his assistance? And if a sparrow cannot fall to the ground without his notice, is it probable that an empire can rise (again) without his aid?"

Speaking of aid, needing our patriot assistance right now is Rep. Randy Forbes, whose congressional address on America's Judeo-Christian heritage has received more than 3 million views on YouTube. Forbes, along with the members of the bipartisan Congressional Prayer Caucus, has reintroduced H. Res. 397, "America's Spiritual Heritage Resolution." The resolution would recognize our nation's spiritual heritage milestones, reject current attempts to erase all religious history from public buildings and educational resources, and establish a week for Americans to remember and reflect on the spiritual principles upon which our nation was founded. The resolution has gained bipartisan support, with 79 co-sponsors. Has your representative sponsored or supported the resolution? If not, please contact that person today to ask that he/she does so.

If Psalm 33:12 says that "blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord," how would the verse read for the nation who has given God the boot?

Mr. Norris: While I have always been a fan of your movies and TV shows (particularly Walker, Texas Ranger), I am now more a fan than ever of -- well, simply -- you. Thank you so much for taking up the cross for Christianity in this country and for daring to speak out about issues that affect the American way of life. I am an older American so have seen this country when it was still God fearing, grateful, united, and when people actually put OTHERS first rather than themselves. With all the Hollywood liberalism, I am feeling so euphoric that someone of your caliber is speaking for America, not for the "socialist" direction being taken by those currently in power. Hopefully, with men like you, we can turn things back to the way they should be. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!

Your article naturally lends support to the Impeach Obama campaign, Chuck,http://www.impeachobamacampaign.com/. This site gives a pic of 'Healthcare' Obama that is very reminiscent of Alfred E. Neuman and MAD has characterised BHO as AEN. Well, make him worry. (AEN has repeatedly campaigned for the presidency, evidently and his slogan is "You could do worse...and always have." BHO has not bucked the trend, it seems.) The companion site, http://www.c4strategies.com/articlesofimpeachment.html says this, "Resolved, that Barack Hussein Obama, President of the United States, is impeached for high crimes and misdemeanors, and that the following articles of impeachment be exhibited to the United States Senate:
Articles of impeachment exhibited by the House of Representatives of the United States of America in the name of itself and of the people of the United States of America, against Barack Hussein Obama, President of the United States of America, in maintenance and support of its impeachment against him for high crimes and misdemeanors.
Article I
In his conduct while President of the United States, Barack Hussein Obama, in violation of his constitutional oath faithfully to execute the office of President of the United States and, to the best of his ability, preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States, and in violation of his constitutional duty to take care that the laws be faithfully executed, has:
Unlawfully exercised the authority of his office to take private property for public use in violation of the Fifth Amendment of the United States Constitution, which guarantees to the People that “private property shall not be taken for public use without just compensation,” and without “due process of law”;
Unlawfully interfered with the management of private companies for the purpose of achieving government control of them, in violation of the Fifth Amendment of the United States Constitution.
Unlawfully interfered with the economic rights of the People by imposing unreasonable impairments in the fulfillment of their intended contractual obligations, and their ability to enter into such contracts, and attempting to change our fundamental economic system, where there is no significant or legitimate public purpose to do so.
In doing this, Barack Hussein Obama has undermined the integrity of his office, has brought disrepute on the Presidency, has betrayed his trust as President, and has acted in a manner subversive of the rule of law and justice, to the manifest injury of the people of the United States.
Wherefore, Barack Hussein Obama, by such conduct, warrants impeachment and trial, and removal from office and disqualification to hold and enjoy any office of honor, trust or profit under the United States.
Article II
In his conduct while President of the United States, Barack Hussein Obama, in violation of his constitutional oath faithfully to execute the office of President of the United States and, to the best of his ability, preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States, and in violation of his constitutional duty to take care that the laws be faithfully executed, has prevented, obstructed, and impeded the administration of justice, and to that end, through his subordinates and agents, has:
unlawfully engaged in a conspiracy to suppress evidence of the true place of his birth. This obstruction of justice has resulted in a violation of the Constitutional provision that a President of the United States must be a natural born citizen.
Unlawfully refused his assent to the Laws of the United States, and exercised false powers of veto that are contrary to Constitution.
In all of this, Barack Hussein Obama has undermined the integrity of his office, has brought disrepute on the Presidency, has betrayed his trust as President, and has acted in a manner subversive of the rule of law and justice, to the manifest injury of the people of the United States.
Wherefore, Barack Hussein Obama, by such conduct, warrants impeachment and trial, and removal from office and disqualification to hold and enjoy any office of honor, trust or profit under the United States."
