It’s pretty depressing to see this article at Air Force Times which accepts as fact that America is no longer a Judeo-Christian nation and is, instead, “secular”. The confusion the article refers to is most certainly due to that rejection of America’s founding principles.
You have sworn to uphold the constitution and defend the nation, “So help me God.” You’re led in prayer at the start of meetings and events. And you work for a military that keeps chaplains close by to meet your spiritual needs.
It’s all of those things — and more — that stir the polarizing debate over religion in the Air Force.
It’s a debate the Air Force has been trying to shake since 2005, when allegations of religious harassment and discrimination surfaced at the Air Force Academy.
Seven years later, Air Force leaders are still trying to find the appropriate balance that allows airmen their religious freedom while honoring their commitment to serve a secular government.
What’s so “confusing” to the Air Force? This.
The debate over what’s appropriate came to the forefront again in February, when Lt. Gen. Ronnie Hawkins, the new head of the Defense Information Systems Agency, gave a presentation at his first commander’s call that included two references to God.
Apparently, the idea that a general should be allowed to mention God in a speech is “theocracy” to a lot of people. This has been the goal of the Left for many decades. People for the American Way, led by Norman Lear, is an example of a leftist organization that has fought to push God out of the public square.
Why is this so important? It’s important because of the election and the choices that we have in this election. We need to elect someone who knows where our rights come from. This issue of where our rights come from is the main thing that separates the Right from the Left in America. Either your rights come from God and are objectively yours no matter who is elected to office and no matter who is sitting on the Supreme Court, or your rights are determined by the subjective and changing views of the people you elect or who are appointed to the Supreme Court. Watch this video to see Elena Kagan saying she will follow the Constitution but not agree that rights are “fundamental” (pre-existing, coming from God) and Senator Tom Coburn, a Christian who takes issue with her.
If you don’t believe our rights come from God, you are the Left. If you believe our government is secular, you are the Left. If you believe that a claim that our rights come from God is “theocracy,” you are the Left. If you are the Left, you belong in the Democratic Party, not the Republican Party. Here in the Republican Party, we believe rights come from God and cannot be taken away by any government authority, whether local, state or federal. If the Republican Party rejects that, the Republican Party is dead.
It’s just that simple.
Defend America’s founding principles, and defend the Republican Party from being taken over by the Left. Vote for Rick Santorum.
