United States of America

This page is a dedication to this great land that I live in.  I am proud to be an American. 

Living in America is the most precious thing in the world because God has his hand upon this country and is blessing this country daily.

 Other people in other countries love the land they live in, I am sure.  That is why I firmly believe if you do not like it here or what this land stands for, being founded on Judeo Christian beliefs then you are welcome to go to any of the other fine countries on this globe.

There are those in other lands that criticize the U.S.A. for our convictions, beliefs, policies, actions and foreign affairs.  But there are some who have a knowledge of the kind of land and people we have.  I really like what one Canadian said about this great land that was actually written into the Congressional Record of Congress.  You can read the entire address on my “America” page  2.  The kind words were from Gordon Sinclair on his broadcast. 

 

The Declaration of Independence was the promise; the Constitution was the fulfillment.

 

 

“The sacred rights of mankind are not to be rummaged for, among old parchments, or musty records.  They are written, as with a sun beam in the whole volume of  human nature, by the hand of the divinity itself; and can never be erased or obscured by mortal power.”

 

Alexander Hamilton, 1775

The Christian Counter

We have abundant reason to rejoice that in this Land the light of truth and reason has triumphed over the power of bigotry and superstition, and that every person may here worship God according to the dictates of his own heart. In this enlightened Age and in this Land of equal liberty it is our boast, that a man's religious tenets will not forfeit the protection of the Laws, nor deprive him of the right of attaining and holding the highest Offices that are known in the United States.

George Washington, letter to the Members of the New Church in Baltimore, January 27, 1793

Declaration of Independence

It is the duty of all men in society, publicly, and at stated seasons, to worship the SUPREME BEING, the great Creator and Preserver of the universe. And no subject shall be hurt, molested, or restrained, in his person, liberty, or estate, for worshipping GOD in the manner most agreeable to the dictates of his own conscience; or for his religious profession or sentiments; provided he doth not disturb the public peace, or obstruct others in their religious worship.

John Adams, Thoughts on Government, 1776

The Declaration of Independence is made up of five distinct parts: the introduction; the preamble; the body, which can be divided into two sections; and a conclusion. The introduction states that this document will "declare" the "causes" that have made it necessary for the American colonies to leave the British Empire. Having stated in the introduction that independence is unavoidable, even necessary, the preamble sets out principles that were already recognized to be "self-evident" by most 18th- century Englishmen, closing with the statement that "a long train of abuses and usurpations . . . evinces a design to reduce [a people] under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security." The first section of the body of the Declaration gives evidence of the "long train of abuses and usurpations" heaped upon the colonists by King George III. The second section of the body states that the colonists had appealed in vain to their "British brethren" for a redress of their grievances. Having stated the conditions that made independence necessary and having shown that those conditions existed in British North America, the Declaration concludes that "these United Colonies are, and of Right ought to be Free and Independent States; that they are Absolved from all Allegiance to the British Crown, and that all political connection between them and the State of Great Britain, is and ought to be totally dissolved."

July 8 1776    The first public reading of the Declaration of Independence.  Bells tolled throughout the city on that day.  Tradition holds that the Liberty Bell rang out this day.

Patriots fought and died for the beginning of this country.  Their Judeo Christian beliefs are evident in the historical recordings of their quotes, their parchments, and their documents that they left for us.  I believe that those that wish to criticize the Christians are individuals that would not stand up for this country anyway, let alone fight for it.  There is a danger in allowing the continued irresponsible reporting  that this country was not began as a Christian Nation.  History in the schools has been distorted to keep our children from understanding the truth about how this great country came into existence.

 

There is anti-Christian attacks from every segment of our society.  Ladies and Gentlemen, this is the work of the Devil and he will do anything and everything in his power to deceive you.

 

I do not believe our Founding Fathers ever would have thought that states would ever have to enact legislation to display the Ten Commandments, the National Motto “In God We Trust”, and the Beatitudes from Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount.  (The great state of Mississippi  House of Representatives, March 8, 2005)  I commend the Great State of Mississippi on their action.

 

Friends as Christians we should be outraged that this anti-Christian sentiment is allowed to go on in our country, that our forefathers fought and died for.  We have activist judges that have made a mockery out of God and what our country truly stands for.  The Supreme Court has made decisions that the first Supreme Court Chief Justice would have been appalled at.

 

We need to take a stand now for our Judeo Christian beliefs that this country was formed on.  There will be too many lives lost to a Devil’s Hell because Christians stood by and did nothing.  God’s blessings will be removed from our land if this continues, the open sin of homosexuality, blasphemy against God, the removal of God’s words from our hallowed halls, the rulings of activist judges with their own agendas, the deaths of unborn babies.  Friends the list goes on and on. 

The Plymouth Oration  -  Delivered by the Honorable Daniel Webster

December 22, 1820  -  The bicentennial of Plymouth Rock

 

Lastly, our ancestors established their system of government on morality

and religious sentiment. Moral habits, they believed, cannot safely be

trusted on any other foundation than religious principle, nor any

government be secure which is not supported by moral habits. Living

under the heavenly light of revelation, they hoped to find all the

social dispositions, all the duties which men owe to each other and to

society, enforced and performed. Whatever makes men good Christians,

makes them good citizens. Our fathers came here to enjoy their religion

free and unmolested; and, at the end of two centuries, there is nothing

upon which we can pronounce more confidently, nothing of which we can

express a more deep and earnest conviction, than of the inestimable

importance of that religion to man, both in regard to this life and that

which is to come.

 

Finally, let us not forget the religious character of our origin. Our

fathers were brought hither by their high veneration for the Christian

religion. They journeyed by its light, and labored in its hope. They

sought to incorporate its principles with the elements of their society,

and to diffuse its influence through all their institutions, civil,

political, or literary. Let us cherish these sentiments, and extend this

influence still more widely; in the full conviction, that that is the

happiest society which partakes in the highest degree of the mild and

peaceful spirit of Christianity.

 
The honorable Daniel Webster ended the oration with this;
 

We welcome you to the immeasurable blessings of rational existence, the immortal hope of Christianity, and the light of everlasting truth!

There are sites on the internet that choose to call themselves standing up for Separation of Church and State, and some even ascertain thoughts of being pro-religious, at the same time trying to tear down anything and everything to do with Christianity.  They have so-called paralegals that have researched documents of speeches and quotes of the founding fathers that try to dispute the renderings of the so-called religious right.  Saying that the Constitution of the United States or the Declaration of Independence does not contain mention of God in them.  They have attacked some of the Christians that have researched our heritage and nit picked at any inconsistency or error of a quote of  the founding fathers.  To these God haters I offer the below speech by Daniel Webster, well after the Revolution of our nation but still the founding fathers thoughts are expressed.

1782-1852
