July 4th 2006

July 4th 2006

Two hundred and thirty years ago our Founding Fathers illuminated the world with the signing of the Declaration of Independence. For the first time in modern history common people would be free from the tyranny of rule by noble birth. These great men came from various backgrounds but the vast majority were united as Brothers in the Light of God. Their God was not an abstract concept or a creation of myth; He was the God of Abraham. The original intent of our Founding Fathers was that the Light of God shall not be excluded from public life but that His place in government should be memorialized as the very foundation of our great nation.

Our Founding Fathers used the natural law of God to justify breaking from the tyranny of the English Crown: “When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands 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.”

Our Founding Fathers also declared: “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.”

Today our rights are once again threatened by the unpatriotic and godless who reside within our own nation. They have taken away our children’s right to pray in school. They have aborted 40 million of our children and have removed the Ten Commandments from our public buildings. They are fighting to remove the word God from our Pledge of Allegiance and have asked that His name be removed from our currency. I ask you, is this the United States that our Founding Fathers’ envisioned?

The time in our history has come for all People of Faith, of God and Country, to stand together, united against those that wish to destroy our nation, faith and our destiny from within. I ask you to join me on this July 4th in a united prayer to God, for the future of these United States of America.

God Bless America.
