I came across a Christian Right website today, expressing moral disappointment with the conservatives that are in power in the U.S.
All these atrocities continue in spite of the fact that we now have the "right" people in places of power. Indeed, the occupant of the White House is a professing Christian. The U.S. Attorney General is believed to be a devout Christian. "Conservatives" control both Houses of Congress, and Republican presidents appointed seven of the nine Supreme Court justices.
One might assume something false about the 'atrocities' in question. Here's the same quote in greater context:
Christians have actively tried to return our entire land to its moral foundation for more than 20 years. We can categorically say that absolutely nothing has been achieved. If you disagree, consider this:
All these atrocities continue in spite of the fact that we now have the “right” people in places of power. Indeed, the occupant of the White House is a professing Christian. The U.S. Attorney General is believed to be a devout Christian. “Conservatives” control both Houses of Congress, and Republican presidents appointed seven of the nine Supreme Court justices. Christian activists placed the right party in power, but are we now witnessing the return to moral and constitutional government that we have demanded for so long?
No, we are not, and we never will. More than fifty-three million people voted for pro-abortion, pro-gay candidates in the 2000 presidential election. That number will undoubtedly grow each year as Hollywood, MTv and universities turn out liberals faster than our churches can produce converts. Redemption of all 50 American States and their general government is totally impossible. (links in original)
- Abortion continues against the wishes of many States
- Children may not pray in our schools*
- The Bible is not welcome in schools except under strict FEDERAL guidelines
- The 10 Commandments remain banned from public display
- Sodomy is now legal AND celebrated as “diversity” rather than perversion
- Preaching Christianity will soon be outlawed as “hate speech”¹²
- Gay marriage will be foisted upon us in the very near future
The site I take this from, ChristianExodus.org
, intends for all the Christians to move to South Carolina and secede from the nation. They hope to achieve
an independent Christian nation where people may once again worship God under the protection of a friendly government. In addition, such a nation will be free of burdensome taxation and federal meddling in local affairs. Matter of factly, the liberties we have lost to liberalism over the past century will be restored in one fell swoop.
Happy Memorial Day, everyone.
