Judeo Christian America

Anyone who says that the United States of America wasn’t founded on the basis of Judeo Christian ethics is either a fool or a liar. The inalienable rights spoken of in the Declaration of Independence, as it states them, are granted by God and not the state. We are given a freedom of religion not a freedom from religion. We have the right, based on Judeo Christian principals, to practice, display, and expound upon whatever religion we choose: in private, in public, and on the governmental property of which we are the owners.

The proponents of the Judeo Christian ethic have not always been perfect, nor are we now. The Muslim extremists are getting away with what they are doing throughout the world, while the “good” Muslims could put a stop to it if they stood together against the extremists. The “good” Christians stood by and did nothing as the inquisition took place, just as the “good” Muslims are doing today. Both groups had the same idea: the control of others in pursuit of their religion.

The intolerance of our Judeo Christian principals prevalent in our country today is for the most part, due, not to those who would undermine those principals but rather to the apathy of those of us not willing to put forth the effort to maintain our God given rights.

A conservative humanist is no better than a liberal humanist, but simply has a differing bent. Humanism is the force that is eroding the principals on which this country was founded and is being done by replacing our founding fathers Godly values with the humanistic values of those who have the audacity to believe that those values thought up by humans should be paramount to the biblical principals on which our nation was founded. In other words, “love thy neighbor” is being replaced by rob thy neighbor.

Those who believed that they knew better than God and our founding fathers didn’t have a hammer to hold over us, until the 1940’s. A position paper was presented to the Supreme Court by a member of the ACLU misquoting the words and intentions of Thomas Jefferson. Thus was established the doctrine of “separation of church and state”. Our country, and its relationship with God, was never intended to be separated. Even cursory research into the writings of our founding fathers establishes this fact. The very foundations of our country were based on God and His principals. Truthfully, without the principles of God in our laws, there is no reason to obey them. What God hath joined together, let no man put asunder.
