As today is Sunday and reflecting on the significance of such I thought of how far our nation has drifted from it's Christian beginning. I was reading a Sunday school lesson and there was a foot note about Noah Webster. Noah Webster known as the father of American education stated,"Almost all the civil liberty now enjoyed in the world owes its origin to the principles of the christian religion," and "The moral principles and precepts contained in the Scripture ought to form the basis of all our civil constitutions and laws."
These were also the views of our founding fathers and God watched over them in creating a new nation, a fresh start for liberty and freedom of religion. Freedom OF religion and not freedom FROM religion. This is where we somehow became lost in our nation's development. There should be no issue for anyone to practice whatever religion they so please. Can we not remember the Pilgrims setting forth for a new beginning of religious freedom culminating in starting a new city as a light upon the hill?
We have let ourselves down. We have allowed liberals to deny all of us equal opportunity of our religious beliefs as in "prohibiting the free exercise thereof."
The answers to our problems as a nation, as a family and as individuals are in the bible. Let's read, reflect and remind ourselves that only WE can make a difference with the assistance of God.
The outcry over this, where was the outcry for it. There was NOTHING wrong with Governor Bentley's comments.
