The Campaign to Secularize America

One of the most significant and worrisome aspects of the Barack Obama Administration is that he is working hard to completely secularize our society by removing all evidence of religion from public places, from public gatherings, and from schools. Obama is trying to make the United States a totally secular nation. This goal was predictable when he was campaigning in San Francisco back in 2008. Here are Obama's insulting words about religious people in small towns in the United States: They "get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren't like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations."

The next thing we noticed was that when President Obama recites the Declaration of Independence, he changes the wording. Again and again, when he quotes the great Declaration, he censors out the word "Creator." We all know that the Declaration proclaims that we "are endowed by our [their] Creator with certain unalienable rights." Again and again, when Obama recites this line, he omits the word "Creator." Obama has done this so often that it can't be a slip of the tongue or a glitch of the teleprompter. Changing the words of the Declaration of Independence is part of his determination to remove everything religious and every mention of God from every aspect of our public life in order to "fundamentally transform" us from "one nation under God" into one nation under the Federal Government, especially the executive branch, with no higher power recognized.

I think Obama is trying to treat Christians like smokers. You can do it in the privacy of your own house and maybe inside your church, but never where the public can see you. The Founding Fathers were very public about their religion, and we have the right to be, too.

Listen to the radio commentary here:

"And when you pray, do not be like the hypocrites, for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the street corners to be seen by men. I tell you the truth, they have received their reward in full. But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you. And when you pray, do not keep on babbling like pagans, for they think they will be heard because of their many words. Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask him" (Matthew 6:5-8).

A mojority of the Founding Fathers were Deists, not Christians. A majority of them were distrustful of priests and churches. They recognized a higher power, but not the almighty G-d preached by religion.

What's more, given the opportunity to create a specifically christian nation they pointedly did not do so.

Please, read article 11 of the US Treaty with Tripoli.

"Art. 11. As the Government of the United States of America is not, in any sense, founded on the Christian religion; as it has in itself no character of enmity against the laws, religion, or tranquillity, of Mussulmen; and, as the said States never entered into any war, or act of hostility against any Mahometan nation, it is declared by the parties, that no pretext arising from religious opinions, shall ever produce an interruption of the harmony existing between the two countries."

This treaty was unanimously approved by the Senate in 1797.

Don't act like President Obama is on a tirade to strip Christianity out of the Constitution, because though out Constitution and the tenates of Christianity do intersect at some points, it is not a Christian document.
