Not being politically correct

To the editor:

What kind of a nation do we live in? One that is very troubled. We have an epidemic of teen suicide, addiction to drugs, pornography, murder. All because mankind has no HOPE!

The U.S. Supreme Court issued two bans on prayer in public schools. The first ban came in 1962, and the second was issued in 1963. The bans were the result of a court case sponsored in part by Madalyn Murray O’Hair.

Since then we taught our children that they are descendants of apes. When one is told that they have no more value than an animal, why do we expect them to act any differently? We have elected officials enacting laws trying to force GOD or any reference to Him out of every avenue of American life.

Who is at fault? We the people. We have set on our butts in ease and allowed ourselves to become complacent and lazy while chasing the American Dream.

“In Congress, July 4, 1776. The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America, When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”

We have taken the Christian religion, the Bible and prayer out of schools, but left in religion of witchcraft and sorcery, and wonder why people have no hope. Now we are reaping what we have sown: distrust, anger, murder, perverse behavior that is costing the lives of our young and old alike!

Will the church and the people of this nation stand strong and say that is enough and return to God their creator and his Son, the Lord Jesus Christ? This nation can become great again, but not without the one who put it in place.
