Fight those who try to curb religion

  • Follow Letters

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.

And, Mr. Buchanan, when will you and your kind finally understand that those (atheists and agnostics) that represent the "Aggressive anti-religious behavior" you rant against never initiate a confrontation? We respond in defense, NOT to proselytize! GGpap

The anti-Christian approach

The anti-Christian approach to life is every bit the religion that Christianity is. The ultimate goal is different, but the faith is at the same level. Punishing the Christian with abortion taxes is no different than punishing the anti-Christians with honor taxes. The elected officials decide who's turn it is in the barrel.

Unpublished

After reading this letter, and others like it, I find it hard to differentiate between a good Christian and a Muslim extremist. Your attitudes are similar.

Jesus said to go out and

Jesus said to go out and spread the word. He never said to go rule the world. Christianity is based on faith and is most effective one person at a time. You cannot "save" an entire community ... only one person can speak for him or hersef. Religion, in ANY form is a terribly form of government and no religion has ever succeeded in ruling a country for long. You SHALL know them by the fruits of their faith, sir. And the fruits of your faith appear to be no diffferent than those of the extremists who have hijacked other major religions over the centuries.

Men of conscience, guided by

Men of conscience, guided by their faith and principles, are what made this country great. Even atheists believe in something whether they declare a God or not. Most believe in fairness, compassion, and equality. These are not such different values and principles from those of most Christians, Jews, Muslims, or any other religion. If we all work together to the same end then it should not matter whether we are of one religion or another. If you exclude people because they profess to be Jewish or Mulsim, or even ahteist, then you have begun to judge prople, something Jesus also warned against. Are we taking the name of the Lord (CHRISTian) in vain here? That's not what our Christian founding fathers had in mind.

Christianity began as a force

Christianity began as a force of love and compassion. It strikes me that any faith that requiers a sword, gun, or legislation in order to survive and thrive is not very strong. How can such a faith be considered the one true faith?

When a " Fanatic" like Dr. Buchanan make a blanket statement like '" The Democratic Party hates God". He loses what little credibility he might have had. No party has a monopoly on God.

Mr. Buchanan you sound like

Mr. Buchanan you sound like the common variety conservative and you're not broad minded enough to know that people unaffiliated with your political beliefs can also believe in God. You political party has no monopoly on God and your party certainly has no monopoly on intelligence either. That's self evident. You seem to be advocating a religious state ( theocracy ) similar to the state of Iran.

Old Ralph Buchanan....Gee, I

Old Ralph Buchanan....Gee, I thought he had died a long time ago. But I see he's very much alive and still doing his senile rant over abortion and Jesus. Been down this boring road with RB before.... I will simply point out the historical FACT that while America at the time of the writing of the Constitution was vaguely a Christian nation, neither the word "God" nor "Jesus" appears anywhere in the Constitution. Ours is a Godless Constitution. Its writers were mostly Deists who believed in a "God"of some sort, but who did not believe in the divinity of Jesus. Folks, this is a historic fact--look it up if you don't believe me. In fact, the Ralph Buchanans of the time criticized the document as undermining Christianity and promoting immorality.
I am glad to see so many of the posts to RB see him as he is--a doddering old guy with a Jesus complex. There is hope!

bushwhacker..........why

bushwhacker..........why doesn't a child have the right to live, just because his/her mother wants it dead. Remember it's NOT about the mother's right to choose, it is ALL about the right to kill the child. THAT is why as a lawmaker in Chicago, Obama voted to make it illegal for a doctor to attempt to save the live of a child born alive after a botched abortion. A live birth AFTER a botched abortion has NOTHING to do with the mother's body, so that argument is shot down...........the true goal is the death of the "unwanted" child.
