“Wall of Separation” Will Lead To Slaughter

The San Francisco 9th circuit, federal appeals court, that outraged much of the country last summer when it declared the Pledge of Allegiance unconstitutional because of the words “under God”, has refused to reconsider that ruling. It will most likely go to the Supreme Court. The three judge panel that handed down that decision said the phrase “under God” violates the separation of church and state mandated by the Constitution. Excuse me? The phrase or anything relating to “separation of church and state” is NOT in the Constitution! Why isn’t someone in government disputing this publicly? A Presidential press conference is in order to let the American people know they have been hoodwinked.
Have we not learned anything in this country the last two years. When we were frightened out of our wits by terrorists we certainly had no problem acknowledging God. We had prayer vigils across the country and church services that were televised from Washington, DC and New York City. Attending these services were President Bush and members of the House and Senate. Does anyone think that God might be trying to get our attention?
Recently, Fox News reported that Governor Bob Riley from Alabama was being accused of violating the separation of church and state by holding a Bible study in his office in the Capitol building, where staffers attend voluntarily. Well, for all those who are monitoring all the people who are getting together in the name of “God” on Capitol Hill – listen up. There are dozens of Bible studies in the House and the Senate and it has been a privilege for me to participate in most of them. The Chaplain of the Senate, Dr. Lloyd Olgilvie has been holding a weekly Bible study every Friday afternoon in the Senate building for sometime, and it even includes lunch. A “ladies tea” presents the gospel where Congressional wives share their spiritual experiences. Each February, during The National Prayer Breakfast, there are luncheons conducted by Media Fellowship held in the Senate building. There is a weekly Bible study in the White House Executive Offices. President Bush prays often in the Oval Office, with Heads of State. When Clinton was in office, a small group was allowed to walk and pray through the White House after hours. And of course, each session of the House and Senate is opened in prayer. So you Godless minded folks who are offended by all these religious-goings-on, have your work cut out for you. Just remember, as you attempt to remove God and replace Him with Humanism, your soul is at risk.
The notion that Christians do not belong in the political arena has been adopted by the misguided church – God’s plan was for His people to rule over all the earth. The Soviet Union’s constitution and other secularized nations tell us that religion must be kept out of public debates and that religion only belongs in the church. However, the more the nations buy into this “Godless lie” of keeping religion out of schools and politics, the more society falls apart. When we eliminate God we remove His hand of protection. God does not hang around where He is not welcome. So if God isn’t invited to call the shots, guess who does?
The hypocrisy of today’s political system is maddening. When Rev. Jesse Jackson pushes his agenda around through Rainbow Push Coalition, it seems perfectly acceptable, but if Pat Robertson or a Christian activist shares a political opinion publicly it is considered taboo. Rev. Jackson and Bill Clinton make the rounds of churches, campaigning for their party -- a conservative is likely to be arrested for doing so. Rev. Barry Lynn, Executive Director of Americans United for Separation of Church and State, is deemed an expert on the subject and is a regular guest on national television. True expert’s on the subject, from a Biblical and historical point of view, are usually denied TV time.
In an increasing Godless society, the person who lives by Biblical standards is considered an outcast and even criminal. The “good citizen” is anyone who accepts the lower standards of morality and abides by the “liberal agenda.” The “wall of separation” between church and state is not a wall – it’s a coffin for Christians and Jews. The abominable “wall of separation” in America, is subtly leading us to future slaughter (as is taking place in Sudan and several other countries). Wars on foreign soil will mean little, compared to the battlefield we will face (are facing) here at home. Those of faith, I implore you to stand your ground.
These Godly men who helped lay the foundation of our country understood what today’s Godless leaders do not.
George Washington: “It is impossible to rightly govern the world without God and the Bible.”
John Adams: “Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people…
Thomas Jefferson: “The Bible is the cornerstone of liberty …students’ perusal of the sacred volume will make us better citizens, better fathers, and better husbands.”
William Penn: “If we will not be governed by God, then we will be ruled by tyrants.”
Ulysses S. Grant: “Hold fast to the Bible as the sheet anchor of your liberties; write its precepts in your hearts and practice them in your lives. To the influence of this Book we are indebted for all the progress made in true civilization and to this we must look as our guide in the future. ‘Righteousness exalteth a nation, but sin is a reproach to any people.”’
