it’s Talking Points with the Founding Fathers!
I’ll begin with this: No apologies will be given. None.
What am I referring to? I’m referring to believing in God. Believing in the Creator. Believing that my rights are being trampled when I see that our county attorneys are going with the flow that “Government leaders are only allowed to have prayers to a general god or creator based on case precedent.”
I don’t apologize for this: MY GOD ISN’T “GENERAL” nor does he bow to any legal entity.
These questions that follow are not for you atheists. Just the ones who sit in the pews on Sunday morning and raise their hands yet won’t fight against this nonsense: Do you go to church or play church? Do you believe in God? Have you ever read the Constitution? Declaration of Independence? Do you understand that our country was founded upon faith in God? Because frankly, you’re acting more like someone from a third world country who has never heard of Him, the Creator. No, I will not apologize for questioning you on your faith. Since you are accepting the world’s attempt to squelch my rights to free speech, I have a right to ask.
I expect the hate-mail will come. I don’t care. I’ll say it again: I am not apologizing. For years, we had prayer before graduations; prayer before just about all public meetings; prayer at the pole; prayer at School Board meetings. And now suddenly, we can’t pray before a BOC meeting and use Jesus Christ or Savior?
This patriot has had enough of the attacks coming from the left. Prayer is the only thing that will save us now and get our country back on track.
I wonder what would happen if individuals who DO BELIEVE in God show up at the next 6 pm BOC meeting and pray “The Lord’s Prayer” in unison? Just what will they do? Throw us out? Make fun of us. We have precedent for that: Remember Commissioner Hayes berating the crowd? Go ahead and attempt to kick us out of “our building”. And if the local press doesn’t want to write about it, well, there’s always the Fayetteville Observer. And we can use blogs and other means to show just how not “inclusive” our own little corner of the world called Sanford, has decided to become.
If that offends you, get a life. Isn’t it interesting that prayer before the commissioner meetings was never a problem when the Democrats held control. Only when the Republicans gained control. If that sounds far-fetched then why hasn’t Commissioner Hayes or any of the others beside Ms. Shook and Mr. Womack stood up and taken a stand?
If anyone tries to say this just came up, don’t bother. The left and progressives have been trying for years to take God out of everything. We need God in America again.
To all Lee County leaders in all professions: Why are you silent?
Where are the pastors here in town? Why are they not speaking publicly on this? The world is desperate need of a positive example. To be honest, after this week’s tragedies, Lee County is in desperate need of some good news. And prayer.
Give the anti-Jesus crowd room and they will bar us from saying prayers at our bedside and at church gatherings. Finally, I would like to add another tip to the Herald’s column “Tips for a safe school year”. Pray. It works wonders.
