Anyone who has read President Washington's first proclamation of thanksgiving or most of the other pro-religious quotations of our Founding Fathers should know they believed America could not succeed estranged from Almighty God.
Our Constitution guarantees the right of freedom of religion, not from religion. The wall of separation oft quoted was meant by Jefferson to protect public religious activity. The "free exercise thereof" clause in the Constitution clearly is to protect our right to worship in whatever faith we profess, or no faith.
Aggressive anti-religious behavior -- by those who hate even the idea of God and are supported by the American Civil Liberties Union, and clearly by the Democratic Party -- is aimed at the suppression of religious support for public behavior. These Democrats clearly are the Party of Death, led by the most pro-death president in all history, who voted three times against the Born Alive Infant Protection Act and supports partial-birth abortion, and even wants federal taxes -- our money -- to pay for abortion.
Anyone who supports this party or president on the current health-care effort need not claim to be a Christian in any way. "By their fruits you shall know them," Jesus tells us. And, indeed, we do know how evil has completely conquered and thoroughly controlled the Democratic Party.
Let them know that this will not stand. We, the members of the three Abrahamic religions, will go to the polls as one great army for retribution against the attacks of the Dems on our religious-based Constitution. It will be like a hundred-million bayonets aimed at the throats of evildoers who now control Washington and many of the socialist and secularist states.
Let us warn our legislators that we will again come to life in the next election to keep our taxes low, our government small and our Constitution protected from aggressive individuals -- not merely atheists, but those who are totally anti-God and obsessed with destroying the Judeo-Christian basis of American life.
Ralph W. Buchanan Sr., North Augusta, S.C.
