Fabric of America ripping

  • Follow Letters

Accolades to David Didimamoff for his May 28 letter “(Opposition to Obama obvious”). I’d like to include two more substantive issues, adding to our opposition.

America has experienced unprecedented average annual unemployment of 14.3 million over three years. Significant improvement in 2012 is not expected. Of the czars Didimamoff referenced, many of their credentials indicate a radical anti-business activist, a liberal activist judge, former ACORN member and – the most disturbing – a Communist Party member.

As Didimamoff stated, people are not against this president because of his color. It has absolutely nothing to do with black, white, Democrat, Republican, Tea Party, man or woman. It’s about America! It’s about the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.’s dream and living in a nation of liberties and freedoms – where one will not be judged by the color of one’s skin, but by the content of one’s character. Never has God, America and the office of president been so violated, disrespected and disgraced, as over the past four years.

When will Americans realize America’s foundational fabric is being ripped apart?

Do you care? If you don’t, I suggest you start!

When will “we the people” boldly step up, defend America’s integrity and together say “enough is enough”?

Heed George Washington’s and Chief Justice John Jay’s prophetic warnings :

Jay: “Providence has given to our people the choice of their rulers; and it is the duty, as well as, the privilege of our Christian nation to select and prefer Christians for their rulers.”

Washington: “The propitious smiles of heaven can never be expected on a nation that disregards the eternal rules of order and right, which heaven itself hath ordained.”

Washington again: “Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports.”

America has blatantly disregarded, defied and mocked God, the above honorable Americans, their guidance and wisdom. Americans must choose (1) stand up with the Lord of Heaven’s armies; defend God and America or (2) as with Israel in Isaiah 9 and 10, the Lord’s fist is still poised to strike. So shall the Lord’s fist, anger and judgment strike America.

Ah well, it was a fairly sensible weekend. Thanks AC for putting this where it belongs. On the little read Traditional I Hate Obama Tuesday Loonie Tunes day.

A new low for shear hyperbole.

I think I'll sleep in this morning so the "Christian Food Fighters" can get their licks in too.

Have at it boys and girls.

"What influence, in fact,

"What influence, in fact, have ecclesiastical establishments had on society? In some instances they have been seen to erect a spiritual tyranny on the ruins of the civil authority; in many instances they have been seen upholding the thrones of political tyranny; in no instance have they been the guardians of the liberties of the people. Rulers who wish to subvert the public liberty may have found an established clergy convenient allies." James Madison

sad reality

We can argue politics and cast the "blame game" on the other guys, but one thing we can all agree upon is that something has got to change.

Just this morning it was revealed that personal wealth has decreased dramatically (about 40%?) in this country over the past years. Both parties have contributed to this mess. We are not getting better. Things are still getting worse. Steadily. Irresistibly, it seems.

We need real change now. What we are doing at the moment clearly is not working. Can we simply vote everyone out of Washington and just start over? The new folks could not be any worse than what we've had.

torn

If the cloth is being torn, then the writer is on one side of the 'pull' that is tearing it. I would suggest that in fact all the other side is doing is counterbalancing the 'pulling' effect of crazed zealots as they make their best efforts to enshrine 'christian sharia law' into our state and national laws.

Mr. Thweatt's letter

Truer words have not been spoken in a while, Mr.Thweatt. Many of us know and understand every word you have said, so do not worry about those that do not understand, or make light of your letter, they do it to everyone that bring GOD into any subject.. I truly feel sorry for anyone that doesn't believe what we know to be true, but, if they do not wish to believe there is a GOD of this world, then that is entirely on them. I guess they think they will never hear the five(5) saddest words that HE will say to them, "Depart, I never knew you"!There are many of us that are not "blind" or "deaf"...to the truth!....Oh yeah, I'm with Cobalt on his comments!

Get real

Faithson, come on. If you examine the social structure of American society over the past 50 years, we've changed from a fairly Christian-centric viewpoint of culture to a much more secular, diverse culture.

The liberals lauded this "progress" from traditional Christian values. But, what has it gotten them?

We've gone from being the envy of the world in terms of economy, GNP, and personal wealth to being a nation in danger of losing it all now.

I'm not saying that our straying from our Judeo-Christian heritage is the only cause of this decline, but you certainly can't deny the correlation between the two.

Hey, don't forget that the same thing happened in Europe. European culture walked away from its Christian roots years before we did, and look at the mess they are in now. Funny, isn't it, this correlation between the lack of adherence to Christian principles and economic decline?

Anti-Christian, atheistic communism? How did that work out economically for all those nations?

Where are there signs of economic progress going on right now? Primarily in Asia. Guess where Christianity is growing by leaps and bounds? ASIA.

Now, here you go trying to focus part of the blame of our nation's decline on Christianity. That's illogical and makes no sense. As a nation we've moved further from Christianity than ever before, and as a nation, we're declining like never before.

We know you like to blame Christianity for our nation's ills, but the historical record and current evidence certainly argues against any point you are trying to make.

" anyone that doesn't believe what we know to be true " Beauty is in the eye of the beholder... a unique experience, one that the individual experiences. your indication that what we 'know' of truth must be the same to everyone 'or else' reeks of exceptionalism, an attitude not found in the gospels I hold in esteem. and as a matter of import, it is the life we 'live' that indicates our 'membership', not some traditional 'belief'...

good point nofan

but the twist in the equation is that the religious institutions have not kept up with the advances in culture, thus leaving a 'wanting' public out in the cold. The inability of 18th century theology to evolve as scientific knowledge has, leaves the thinking individual out in la-la land trying to find the balance between superstition and fact in their spiritual journey. To think that the 'fall in line' theology of the past will lead us into the future is wishful thinking. Being a catholic I attribute the European and American demise of the church to the inability of our hierarchical authority to 'listen' to the PEOPLE. As the church in America makes its last gasps to 'round the wagons' under Roman authority, all many of us see is the devolution of a once great message into a mormanistic cult.

Thanks, Cobalt

Heck, it doesn't take much to simply wake up and smell the coffee, and tell it like it is. Anyone should be able to see that.

Problem is, folks don't WANT to see what rubs them the wrong way.

Sure, I agree with the LTE. Others hate the very idea that our declining moral Christian values have anything to do with our economic plight.

I'm not saying that the only reason for our decline is the fact that we are doing our best to remove Jesus Christ from American life, but I don't think you can easily dismiss the pretty amazing correlation between appreciating and honoring Christian principles and the overall economy.

Being a Christian I attribute much of our demise to the PEOPLE's inability to believe in God and obey God's authority.

God created us in his image. We've spent the previous few thousand years doing the reverse: creating a God in OUR image.

About all we can say is that whatever we've been doing ain't working out so hot.

everyone contemplates the creator of his very existence. It seems that many do not 'find' reasonable answers within the 'traditional' theologies. Of course your point is well made, that our hedonistic and materialistic media sure doesn't help the cause. I do think there are more 'good' people out there than many who have an 'agenda' would suggest, in fact I know many of them, good hardworking kind responsible men and women. Sure the 'pagans' of a self serving bent exist, so do many other maladies to side track us.

Then there's this....

"According to this the apocolypse is upon us and communist infiltration yet. Shades of Joe McCarthy."

By golly, there's ol' Joe McCarthy again. These lefties simply can't restrain themselves from invoking his name.

Pity they aren't yet aware that ol' Joe was correct all along.

who's correct Harley ? i think you have come upon a watershed case in point as to the difference between what You and I think. thanks. Your perception that 'group think' has priority over 'individual' think, that 'individual' thought and expression is the antitheses of American patriotism goes back a long way in American cultural history, back to the 1798 sedition laws. Free speacher's have always had to fight for their rights over the traditionalists, always !
