When I lived in Baton Rouge, LA, a cargo ship, in New Orleans, on the Mississippi River, lost power to its rudder and plowed into the Rivergate shopping center that sits on the river. Luckily, no one was killed but the damage ran into millions of dollars and months to repair. America, today, is like a ship that lost its rudder. We, no longer, accept God as an authority. Our president is a feckless, narcissistic coward. Our congressional leaders, of both parties, have their heads in the sand and care, only, about their hold on power. Some of our preachers and priests preach a form of Christianity-light. The country is leaderless.
Christianity is under assault on all fronts. Atheists sue to remove any public mention of God, Jesus or Christmas. The military punishes a Chaplin for praying to Jesus and requires them to sanction homosexual marriages. The Department of Justice is trying to force the Little Sisters of the Poor to provide all forms of contraception, even those that are abortifacients. It never ends.
President Obama doesn’t lead, he dictates. He is so sure of his beliefs, he brooks no disagreement or compromise. It’s his way or the highway. We’ve seen how reluctant he is to call Muslim terrorists, either, Muslim or terrorists. The Democrat Party embraces the ridiculous policies of the Black Caucus while the Republican leadership wages a war on the Tea Party. Boehner and McConnel, slavishly, do Obama’s bidding. Pelosi and Reid ignore the will of the people and conspire to perpetuate a larger and more intrusive government.
Preachers like Joel Osteen preach a watered down Gospel, while living an extravagant lifestyle. Episcopalians in America have elected an openly homosexual bishop. The Pope has advocated borderline socialistic policies. There are few principled, honest leaders who believe in the Constitution. Even the ones that exist are belittled and ostracized by the leaders of their parties. America has abandoned its firm foundation and now it built its new foundation on quick sand.
In my many years I have come to a
conclusion that one useless man
is a shame, two is a law firm,
and three or more is a congress.
— John Adams
