Ad touted the best principles

  • Follow Letters

I applaud Hobby Lobby for its full-page “In God We Trust” ad in your newspaper July 4. I applaud the paper for having the courage and temerity to publish it, especially in an era of spiritual corruptness (political correctness). That ad is a true history lesson in and of itself – no revisionism needed!

The opinions of the Founders would be considered anachronistic and revolutionary compared with today’s values. While some may tout that we live in a pluralistic society and, therefore, these opinions are no longer valid, I would remind them that the biblical world-view of these Founders – the one that we as a nation have utterly abandoned – is the very foundation upon which this country was established.

John Adams rightfully stated, “Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.” This is why our Constitution no longer functions as it did – we as a nation have ceased to be moral and religious, and those who dare try are immediately marginalized by the powers-that-be.

One can imagine what would happen if the view of history as reflected in that advertisement was in our public schools! Instruction time would increase. Discipline issues within the classroom would decrease. Character education no longer would be needed; it already would be ingrained in the students. (It is a sorry indictment against this culture that good character should even have to be taught!)

Finally, the consistent use of biblical principles in our schools would enhance what we desire most in children – students who can think prudently for themselves and possess the moral fiber needed to propagate the free republic our Founders envisioned.

Psalms 33:12: “Blessed is the nation whose God is The Lord.”

Good letter and I would add

Good letter and I would add Isaiah 5:20:

Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!

All those Christer and Founding Father opinions on Slavery are REALLY pertinent to the United States since the grubby, lazy Southern aristocracy got their well-deserved comeuppance to the tune of the Battle Hymn of the Republic, which has Jeebus actually in it.

Yeah, executing adulterers would really clean up the Newt Wing of the GOP.

Oh, that's right, you choose to ignore the parts of the Bibble that insist you need to be Observant to be a real Christer (e.g., Matthew) because you're all Cafeteria Christers.

Let's get something very

Let's get something very straight. The Founders, for example the signers of the Declaration of Independence, were majority Anglican/Episcopalian church. That church, following Matthew 6, does not glorify its religion in front of others. Several of the others were deists, and as such they would call on a nation to respect the religions of others, while not forcing any to partake in a religion that is not theirs. And that is the spirit of the Founders. They were not about creating a religious nation. They were about creating a nation in which people of different religions could live together without forcing their religious views on one another.

Which is exactly what the Supreme Court just allowed any rich person to do.
