The Unblessing of America

With the rise of the tolerance movement, we have less tolerance. We had prayer and The Pledge of Allegiance was mandatory. Now prayer is forbidden and The Pledge of Allegiance is optional to say. Now we stabbings and shootings in school.

I would be amused by the effort to remove anything religious from government if it was not so sad. The idea of separation of church and state was never meant to drive religion out government. It was never meant to be a hammer against those who are religious. It was was never meant to prohibit a religious person from practicing how they see fit.

Yet in our own town of Eureka, that is precisely what is happening. We have a lawsuit that attempts to prohibit prayer even though it has been from multiple faiths, and that our Mayor had a prayer breakfast. A hint to you folks, we only pay the council for part time work, and they spend the equivalent of a full time amount of work on the job. If he wants to spend his time on a prayer breakfast, so what. I am not sure why people have such a hard time with prayer being offered. They are quick wishes of good will and guidance towards our people, our cities, and our Nation. Do you not want good things to happen to our people, cities, our Nation, etc? It is not like it is the first time you have tuned things out anyhow.

A couple of quotes from the first President of the United States

It would be peculiarly improper to omit in this first official act my fervent supplications to that Almighty Being Who rules over the universe, Who presides in the councils of nations, and Whose providential aids can supply every human heart defect – that His benediction may consecrate to the liberties and happiness of the people of the United States a government instituted by themselves for these essential purposes.

Part of his inaugural address

“No people can be bound to acknowledge and adore the invisible Hand which conducts the affairs of men more than the people of the United States. Every step by which they have advanced to the character of an independent nation seems to have been distinguished by some token of Providential Agency… (and) we ought to be no less persuaded that the propitious (favorable) smiles of Heaven can never be expected on a nation that disregards the eternal rules of order and right which Heaven itself has ordained.”

Yet today we try to ignore the advice our great President gave us.

Even today the President gives a prayer breakfast, but we in Eureka cannot do so? Why?

Do you understand our government pays for Chaplains? The House of Representatives has one. Prisons have them. The military has about 3k chaplains. We the tax payers pay for the salaries, medical, dental, and retirement. We even pay for the building and running of chapels.

Yet we want to go nuclear on our mayor. Why?
