Our Constitutional rights must not be trampled

“The fool has said in his heart, there is no God” (Psalms 14:1). Benjamin Franklin said in a statement at the Constitutional Convention on June 28, 1787, “We have been assured, Sir, in the sacred writing, that except the Lord build the house, they labor in vain that built it.”

Every one of our 50 states has in its Constitution or founding documents a preamble or opening statement, a reference to the God of the Bible, as Creator, Almighty or some form of the word “Deity.”

Fast forward to the 1920s; the fraudulent “Scopes Monkey Trial” opens the door for the lie of evolution to be forced on our school children. Then comes the work of one atheist woman getting Bible readings and prayer thrown out of our schools, with the resulting tragedies that followed.

To ensure his getting elected to the Presidency of the United States, Lyndon Johnson got a law passed making it illegal for churches and their pastor to speak out publicly for or against a political candidate or law.

Roe vs. Wade legalized the murder of innocent pre-born children. A same-sex leaning district judge declares California’s Prop. 8 — protecting normal marriage between one man and one woman, passed by millions of voters — to be unconstitutional. Military Christian chaplains are told they cannot use the name Jesus as part of their ministry to our servicemen and women. The United States President addressed Planned Parenthood, and invokes a God’s blessing on those who kill babies. Now atheists are trying to get our national motto “In God We Trust” off coins and other legal items.

Christians, if we don’t speak for our Constitutional rights very soon, they will be trampled underfoot along with the principles which have made America the greatest nation on earth.
