Anti-Christian extremist groups like the ACLU, the Freedom From Religion Foundation and People for the American Way hate God.
They also hate America.
These “progressive” outfits – along with like-minded politicos, judges, Hollywood elitists and left-wing media-types – hate that this great nation was expressly founded upon the bedrock precepts of the Judeo-Christian tradition.
And so, in response, they lash out. They endeavor first to raze our God-blessed America, and then raise, from the rubble, a godless America fashioned in their own secular-socialist self-image.
Even the ACLU’s own promotional materials overtly advocate unconstitutional religious discrimination:
“The message of the Establishment Clause [to the U.S. Constitution] is that religious activities must be treated differently from other activities to ensure against governmental support for religion,” they claim.
As you’re about to see, this is abject nonsense – a twisted constitutional misrepresentation as detached from reality as the east is from the west. Secular-”progressivism” depends upon deception as much as it relies upon revisionism.
To know the hearts, minds and collective will of our Founding Fathers and American pioneers, one need only look to what they wrote in their respective state constitutions. Most will be amazed to learn that all 50 state constitutions explicitly and unequivocally thank God for his benevolence and acknowledge that we as a nation are dependent upon Him – that He is the sole source of our freedoms. This is true, not just for the “red states,” but for the bluest of the blue. (See what your state constitution says about God).
Let’s start with the most liberal state in the Union: Massachusetts.
We, therefore, the people of Massachusetts, acknowledging, with grateful hearts, the goodness of the great Legislator of the universe, in affording us, in the course of His providence … and devoutly imploring His direction in so interesting a design, do agree upon, ordain and establish the following … Constitution of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.
Part 1, Article 2:
It is the right as well as 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 worshiping God in the manner and season most agreeable to the dictates of his own conscience;
Chapter 5, Section 1, Article 1:
Whereas our wise and pious ancestors, so early as the year one thousand six hundred and thirty-six, laid the foundation of Harvard College, in which university many persons of great eminence have, by the blessing of God, been initiated in those arts and sciences, which qualified them for public employments, both in church and state: and whereas the encouragement of arts and sciences, and all good literature, tends to the honor of God, the advantage of the Christian religion, and the great benefit of this and the other United States of America …
So much for “separation of church and state.” Did you hear that hollow popping sound? Somewhere in Boston an ACLU attorney’s head just exploded.
Or how about our secularist-in-chief’s home state of Illinois?
We, the People of the State of Illinois – grateful to Almighty God for the civil, political and religious liberty which He has permitted us to enjoy and seeking His blessing upon our endeavors … do ordain and establish this Constitution for the State of Illinois.
