Sarah Defends Day Of Prayer

Sarah Palin last night defended the idea of a national day of prayer, while pronouncing that America is a Christian nation. Thank God she is willing to stand up for our principles and understands that this country was founded on the Judeo Christian belief system. Our founders, even though some were either agnostic or even atheists understood the right of all individuals to discuss and practice their religious beliefs in the public square. Somehow progressive thought has so distorted the original intend that the founders had in forming this wonderful country on religious freedom and biblical principles. Of course most of us understand there was no intention of removing all religious suggestions from the public square, but a simple 1st amendment prohibition of the government making laws respecting a religion or prohibiting the free exercise thereof.

There's an inscription on the American Liberty bell that reads..."Proclaim liberty throughout all the land unto all the inhabitants thereof." {Leviticus 25:10}. Apparently the progressives believe this does not include religious freedom in the public square, and all religious references must be stripped from our public institutions. This is ludicrous and was never the original intent of our founders. Whenever Israel started to gather slaves and bond servants they were rebuked by God..."Ye have not hearkened unto me, in proclaiming liberty every one to his brother, and every man to his neighbor: behold, I proclaim a liberty for you, saith the Lord." {Jeremiah 34:17}. The Judeo Christian belief system that was the inspiration for the founders was not oppressive but rather liberating to all that accepted it. Mans natural progression if not abated was to progress from anarchy to tyranny. George Washington said that, and this is the reason the founders emphasized individual rights rather than a collective mentality. Sarah Palin understands what all this means and she lives it daily...That's why we love her...
