We are not a godly nation, because we DO practice ungodly behavior;
we are a Christian Nation as long as we believe in Jesus and teach the power of God's Love and continue to forgive and be forgiven. ---Michael James Stone
Excuse me but the President is distorting reality. Obama may want to decree from the top down that we are no longer a Christian nation but the reality is that the United States has many Americans today that still practice a Judeo-Christian way of life. The Judeo-Christian principles are very much alive today. Has Obama chosen to make his version of the U.S. not a Christian nation? Obama's native birthplace may be mainly a Muslim nation but the United States of America was founded on Judeo-Christian values and is still mainly a Judeo-Christian nation today. Obama, the anti-Christian President, may want to change or distort that reality but he is going to have a fight on his hands before he corrupts and destroys the morality of this great nation we call the United States of America. I will fight like hell to keep the belief in Christianity alive so that we are not taken down a path filled with moral relativism. Obama, as the Anti-Christian President is distorting reality today in order to promote his secularist or Anti-Christian agenda. He does not exemplify the experience, morality or ethics required to be President of the United States. One example is how he responded stupidly to the question regarding the Cambridge Police and Professor Gates. He is not qualified to be President of the U.S. but unfortunately we had a bunch of stupid oprahbots following their orders to vote for their first African-American President. Obama is trying to change this nation into a secularist society. He has no regard for respecting our Godly Judeo-Christian principles of both past and present. All these liberals like to do is distort reality in order to promote their corrupt agenda. On the campaign trail Obama called for transparency but has not adhered to that promise since being President. In fact, he has been about as transparent as a brick wall. Since Obama has been elected he has consistently been responsible for the demoralization of the United States and promoted an anti-Christian agenda for the United States during speeches both in the United States and overseas.
Evidence that we are still a Judeo-Christian today:
According to the American Religious Identification Survey (ARIS) 76% of Americans identify themselves associate themselves with Christianity.
Chaplains daily prayer in the Senate started in 1789 and Congress still today has a chaplain start the day with a prayer in Congress.
George W. Bush quotes:
"I fully understand that the job of the president is and must always be protecting the great right of people to worship or not worship as they see fit. That's what distinguishes us from the Taliban. The greatest freedom we have or one of the greatest freedoms is the right to worship the way you see fit. "On the other hand, I don't see how you can be president at least from my perspective, how you can be president, without a relationship with the Lord."
"Through prayer, our faith is strengthened, our hearts are humbled, and our lives are transformed. May our Nation always have the humility to trust in the goodness of God's plans."
"The right to have religious beliefs and to freely practice such beliefs are among the most fundamental freedoms we possess."
"Because the Framers placed the guarantee of religious freedom before other cherished rights, religious liberty in America is often called the first freedom."
FDR's D-Day Prayer
Here is some evidence that the United States was indeed founded on Judeo-Christian principles:
In the Declaration of Independence,
When, in the course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bonds which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the laws of nature and of nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.
Bill of Rights Article 3:
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
Articles of Confederation:
The said States hereby severally enter into a firm league of friendship with each other, for their common defense, the security of their liberties, and their mutual and general welfare, binding themselves to assist each other, against all force offered to, or attacks made upon them, or any of them, on account of religion, sovereignty, trade, or any other pretense whatever.
"Can the liberties of a nation be secure, when we have removed the conviction that these liberties are the gift of God?" —Thomas Jefferson
These are quotes from George Washington:
"What students would learn in American schools above all is the religion of Jesus Christ." --George Washington in a speech to the Delaware Indian Chiefs May 12, 1779
"It is impossible to rightly govern the world without God and Bible."
"To the distinguished character of patriot, it should be our highest glory to add the more distinguished character of Christian" [May 2, 1778, at Valley Forge]
"It is the duty of all Nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey his will, to be grateful for his benefits, and humbly to implore his protection and favors."
