WE MUST SPEAK OUT, DEFEND RIGHTS

SHARE WE MUST SPEAK OUT, DEFEND RIGHTS

When good men do nothing, evil triumphs. We, as American citizens, pledge allegiance to "One nation under God," not "One nation under the ACLU," so who are these foreign voices, if they are indeed American citizens, who are refuting that pledge and want to take God out of our public places, our schools and now even out of our own personal creative prayers and writings?

By default we are denying Christ by letting anti-Christs, those who do not profess to believe in him, tell us what we can and cannot do. In this Christian nation, these voices need to "live and let live." We are a republic - not a democracy.I wonder if these same people who are objecting to reverence to God and Christ here in America would go to Jerusalem and complain and demand that the Jewish practice of praying at the Wailing Wall must be stopped because they oppose it?

If we keep on allowing, by our silence, the ACLU and our government to deny us our prayers, our private thoughts and expressions of God in poetry or writings, etc., what next? Pretty soon they will demand we call Christmas "Xmas" because we can't refer to Christ in public places.

May God bless us this Christmas that we will all have the courage to speak out and defend our God-given rights. It is tragic that the schoolteachers can let the children draw witches and devils for Halloween and then disallow them the right to mention God - even in their personal writings.
