Atheists Battle Christians
This country was founded on Christian beliefs and Christian values. I do admit that it has gone considerably downhill from that awesome beginning. Today, you have so many laws against the very things that the founding fathers had claimed when the country began so many years ago.
A disclaimer: I am not "homophobic". I am not pro-abortion. I am not an atheist. I am a Christian. I am pro-life. I am a firm believer in truth and honor.
At this time, atheists are trying, at the Supreme Court level, to claim that faith based initiatives violate separation of church and state. The trouble here is there is NO SUCH THING as separation of church and state. The constitution is clear in that it talks about the government not having a right to start or run a church. It does not say anything about separating the state FROM the church. In fact, the founding fathers were quite interested in making sure that the government stay in line WITH the Christian values they had at the time.
The reason I had the disclaimer is because at this time I think that the atheists are going to get a small foothold just like the gays did with gay liberation. It was a small group but they made a lot of noise. Now, though I do not agree with the gay movement, they are a voice in our country. If you do not believe that, simply check out how many shows on TV talk about that very thing, even in sitcoms.
Atheists are a small group but they choose to have a large voice and, due to the MEDIA yet again, they are heard with a seemingly louder voice than should be. Yes, they have a right to a voice too. Yet, my voice in only heard here, online on my website and in this blog. Perhaps someday, I will be heard round the world but, today, the atheists are heard. I would not mind except that they are trying to break down the very reasons that this country was formed.
Atheists Battle Christians (the media says "people of faith". Guess it's not politically correct to be Christian anymore. And it has begun.)
March 4, 2007 — This week, the Supreme Court heard arguments in a case brought by a group of atheists who claim the Bush administration's Office of Faith-Based and Community Initiatives violates the separation of church and state. It's just one example of how atheists are becoming increasingly assertive — arguing not only that religion is false, but also a threat to civilization.
Outside the court, atheists and people of faith squared off. Inside, the Freedom From Religion Foundation made its case against the president's pet program.
We are going to fall from within. The United States cannot take too many more hits before it cracks. Soon, we will see our freedoms go completely. Those of us born and raised here do not know or most likely understand what it is like to be enslaved and suppressed. Even those people who come from slave backgrounds do not totally understand this because those in their family who went through this are no longer here.
Isn't it time for the Christians (people of faith) to rise up and be counted? Time for us to get a voice, one that we have silenced for too many years. Time for us to show who we are, children of the King! If you have been doing something, do more. If you haven't done anything yet, find a way and do it. If you are unsure if God wants this, grab a Bible. God wants us to believe in Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord. He wants us to be the authority on this earth. It was His plan in the beginning for us to own it!!! Now we must take it back.
