The "Liberals" of today are not the liberals generations ago. They are
CULTURAL MARXISTS who hide behind euphemisms such as
"liberals" or "progressives." They are satanists.
"“Our society strives to avoid any possibility of offending anyone—except God,”
The White House is waging an all-out assault on religious liberty.
Public schools are indoctrinating our children with the gospel of
secularism. Hollywood is spewing toxins into our homes. The soundtrack
of our lives is a pulsating mix of sex and violence and filth. The
American family is in ruins. What was once wrong is now right and what
was once right is now wrong.
Our nation stands on a precipice.
Freedom hangs in the balance. We live in a postmodern and post-God
nation. The perfect storm is brewing. Do not be deceived. There may be a
war on religious liberty, but the true target is Christianity.
Tony Perkins, president of the Family Research Council, and Kelly
Shackelford, president of Liberty Institute, penned an open letter to
the American people last year. Hostility against religious liberty has
reached an all-time high, they warned. The freedom of religion is being
pushed out of public life, schools and even churches.
Founding Fathers considered religious liberty our ‘first freedom,’ and
the bedrock upon which all other freedoms rest,” the men wrote. “They
understood that one’s right to worship God and follow his conscience
according to the principles of his religious faith was foundational to
civic tranquility. A man whose religious faith was repressed could never
be a loyal citizen since the state was usurping his first allegiance
and costing him his primary freedom. This is one of the most important
distinctions that makes America an exceptional nation—if not the most
Both groups document more than 600 recent examples
of religious hostility. Six hundred. American stories. Our stories.
Their documentation included many stories I have covered during my career at Fox News Channel.
The Obama administration wants to force religious organizations and
Christian business owners to provide insurance for birth control and
abortion-inducing drugs in direct violation of their religious beliefs.
The military conducted training sessions that labeled evangelical
Christians and Catholics as examples of religious extremists. The
Internal Revenue Service launched investigations into pro-life
organizations, demanding to know the contents of their prayers.
This is happening right here, right now, in the United States of
America. We are under attack from within—from an enemy who wants to
remove any mention of God from the public marketplace.
In recent days, a Florida child was bullied by his public schoolteacher
for reading his Bible during free reading time. The teacher was
recorded on a voicemail message telling the child’s parents, “He’s not
permitted to read those books in my classroom.”
Seventh-day Adventist preacher Eric Walsh was suspended with pay from his job
as the public health director of Pasadena, California, after critics
exposed videos of sermons in which he preached that homosexuality is a
sin. Pasadena officials told local reporters the pastor was placed on
paid leave while they investigate his sermons and determine whether he
has the ability to lead a department that he’s headed since 2010.
A while back, Rev. Billy Graham penned a letter
expressing his dismay over the moral decline of the nation, declaring
that his “heart aches for America and its deceived people.”
“The farther we get from God, the more the world spirals out of
control,” Graham wrote, noting that the nation seems to be going out of
its way to remove God from the public arena.
“Just a few weeks ago
in a prominent city in the South, Christian chaplains who serve the
police department were ordered to no longer mention the Name of Jesus in
prayer,” he wrote, noting that officers were only allowed to pray to
“the being in the room.”
“Our society strives to avoid any possibility of offending anyone—except God,” he continued.
We ask God to bless America, but we elected a president whose pastor
asked God to damn America. We ask God to bless America, but we slaughter
millions of unborn babies. We ask God to bless America, but we silence
God bless America? We should be on our knees
asking for His mercy instead. The time has come for people of faith to
rise up and claim their Ebenezer. We need patriots who will take back
this land. We need patriots who will say we are still one nation under
The storm clouds are gathering. The winds of revolution are blowing, friends. Religious liberty is under attack.
Years ago, the Christian songwriter Steve Green penned a song titled
“Find Us Faithful.” It was a prayer that all who came after us would
find this generation of believers faithful. The call still rings true
In these early days of the 21st century, the fire is
flickering and the footprints are few. Storm clouds are gathering. The
winds of persecution are blowing. But friends, no matter how difficult
these days have become, let not your heart be troubled.
time has come, brothers and sisters, my fellow countrymen. Who among you
is willing to take a stand for religious liberty? Who among you is will
to risk everything for the cause of Christ? Who among you is willing to
rise up and declare that we are still one nation under God?
“If my people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray
and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear
from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land,” the
The most pressing problem facing America
can’t be solved in Washington, D.C. True hope and change can’t be found
at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. It can only be found at the foot of the
cross on Calvary.
Our government may spy on our phone lines. It
may throw us in jail. It may take away our photography shops and
bakeries. It may demand to know the content of our prayers. But we will
not be bullied. We will not be intimidated. We will not be silenced.
It’s time for a new generation of believers to rise up and restore the
dream of our Founding Fathers—the dream of a nation where all men are
endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights. The dream of a
people who declare we are still one nation under God.
Onward, Christian soldiers. Onward.
