First, a word from a Founding Father and 6th President of the United States:
“In the chain of human events, the birthday of the nation is indissolubly linked with the birthday of the Savior. The Declaration of Independence laid the cornerstone of human government upon the first precepts of Christianity.” ~ John Quincy Adams
Recently in my Great State of Texas, an atrocity was committed, against Texans, against Christians, and more importantly against Children by a school and its school board.
That such a thing should never happen in my great state is an obvious statement, but more importantly such a thing should never be tolerated in our great nation, yet too often is, as the line that divides the heart of the tolerant is convoluted by the mind of the tyrant.
By now I am sure a lot of people have heard of the “War on Charlie Brown’s Christmas in Texas.” It is easy to look up and find the facts on that situation if you have not, and are interested.
But seems to me that the best remedy for that ignorance, is to counter public indoctrination with the light of Truth and salt of Education to drive understanding.
Personally I have found nothing more compelling to the direction our Country should be aimed at than the words from the Founders in their individual accounts, and unanimously agreed to by the Declaration of Independence, ultimately Confirmed by the Constitution into the Supreme and Highest Law and Authority of all who dwell in our country under our government.
“[T]he only means of establishing and perpetuating our republican forms of government is the universal education of our youth in the principles of Christianity by means of the Bible” ~ Founding Father Benjamin Rush, among earned accolades for being the Father of American Medicine, and Father of American Schools under the Constitution
Not that I expect any naysayers of what I promote, but to address any that may be found who would say “What about other religions and their freedoms?”
Any beliefs that conform and promote the beliefs stated in our Declaration of Independence and protected by our Constitution have nothing to fear by defensive “acts of religious oppression” when they assert their beliefs publicly. All others, yeah, I am sure you would call the Christian Act of wishing “Peace on earth and Goodwill” to all, as totally oppressive. And feel free to drown in my sarcasm while you try it.
We should never have let it be forgotten, much less attacked, that we have come to a celebration of an act of love greater than any man is capable of giving another. An act that has brought us Thomas Jefferson’s “Tree of Liberty,” that John Quincy Adams alluded to above, at a price higher than anything we could ransom for ourselves.
I leave off with a one verse of the Bible written around 800 years Before Christ, containing eight of some 353 old testament prophecies that all had to be fulfilled to confirm Jesus, Son of the House of King David, as the Messiah and our Christ Savior:
“For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.” ~ Isaiah 9:6
