If we ever forget that we are One Nation Under God, then we will be a nation gone under. – President Ronald Reagan

Democratic National Committee chairman Tom Perez lamented Wednesday the supposedly malign influence of Christianity on voters’ political preferences, comparing the influence of preachers to that of conservative media outlets.
“We all have to make sure that we are fluent in what’s happening across our ecosystem so that we can come to each other’s defense,” Perez said while speaking at Demand Justice’s “The Court In Crisis: What’s Next For Progressives After Kavanaugh” Summit in Washington, DC. “Because we need to build a bigger orchestra. They’ve had a big orchestra for some time and they’ve got the megaphones to amplify it, whether it’s Sinclair at a local level or Fox at a national level. I’ve learned this from the outreach we’ve done at the DNC. . . .And I had someone in Northwestern Wisconsin tell me, ‘You know what, for most of the people I know, their principal sources of information are Fox News, their NRA newsletter, and the pulpit on Sunday.’”
Perez went on to suggest that the political preference of single issue, pro-life voters can be entirely explained by their exposure to conservative ideas at their place of worship.
“It should come as a surprise to no one that that person has elevated the issue of courts to the top because that person on the pulpit is saying, ‘Ignore everything else that this person has done and is doing, we have to focus on one issue of Roe vs. Wade.’ And people buy it. Because that’s their only source,” Perez said.
It really should come as no surprise that the Political Activist Chairman of the Modern Democratic Party has no qualms in insulting the faith of 75% of Americans.
Remember what happened at the 2012 Democratic National Convention?
Businessinsider.com reported the story as it happened…
Democrats added mentions of the word “God” and recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital today in a testy vote that left angry delegates booing on the floor.
It took three votes to pass the resolution in what was an extremely tense and divided vote. The first two votes failed, but DNC chairman Antonio Villaraigosa declared that the resolution had passed by a two-thirds majority on the third vote.
[The teleprompter showed the results before the measure was declared “passed”!]
“I heard a lot from the other side,” said Kenneth McClintock, a superdelegate and Secretary of State of Puerto Rico. McClintock said Puerto Rico supported the resolution.
“I was surprised” that the vote was so testy, he added.
Republicans had blasted the Democrats’ original platform, which had taken out mentions of “God” and did not affirm Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.
And many delegates thought that the platform change was a direct response to some of the backlash, prompting some to worry that it will be more fodder for Republicans in the final months of the campaign.
“Conservatives are always going to criticize Democrats for not supporting Israel or not being religious enough, or whatever it is that day,” said Brandon Cooper, a delegate from Texas.
The Moral Compass of the Modern Democratic Party’s Far Left Liberal Leadership and their sycophantic minions, in both the Main Stream Media and the “New Media” (i.e., the Internet) and their “foot soldiers”, has been pointing in the wrong direction for quite a while, now.
If it were up to the “Democratic Socialists of the Modern Democratic Party, the very fabric of our society would be irreparably torn asunder, through the dissipation of morality and the glorification of evil.
The direction that the Dem want to take our Sovereign Nation in is that of being not simply an immoral society, but, an amoral one, whose concept of right and wrong is “Whatever Gets You Through the Night (It’s Alright. It’s Alright.)”, and whose ultimate authority is not the God of Abraham, but a Godless Central Government fashioned out of the theories of Karl Marx, whose credo is
From each according to his abilities, to each according to his needs. (Karl Marx)
Just as Marxism has failed wherever it has been tried before, so will it fail here.
Just as amorality and licentiousness led to the destruction of the Roman Empire, so, if unchecked, will it also lead to America’s.
The galling thing is the fact that, even though American Christians remain 75% of the population, we are propagandized and suppressed in both the Old and New Media, to make it seem as if WE are the Minority, when, in fact, WE are the overwhelming Majority.
It is this New Generation of Amoral “Democratic”Socialists, like Tom Perez and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who are in fact, just a tiny, albeit vocal, Minority of America’s population.
So, what can an average Christian American, like you and me, do about this “Tyranny of the Minority”?
As the Apostle Paul tells us in Ephesians, we can STAND.
However, you cannot stand without “the full armor of God”.
I have found, as have my family and friends, that the better that you are doing, in terms of your Christian Walk, the harder that you will be attacked.
10Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of His might. 11Put on the full armor of God, so that you will be able to stand firm against the schemes of the devil. 12For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places.…- Ephesians 6:10-12
By now. you’re probably asking, “So what’s the point of all this, KJ?”
We are given free will by our Creator…will to make choices and decisions on the direction of our lives. Being human, we often don’t make the right decisions and being human, those decisions have the potential to lead us down a dark path.
Whether is in reality or strictly in the close quarters of our own consciousness, the path we choose to follow is up to us.
However, our parents, family, and friends can make a difference in our journey. I thank God that through His Grace, I was given a Mother and Father who made sure that I received loving instruction in The Way in which I should go.
And yes, I thank God that Americans chose Donald J. Trump to be our President doing these challenging times.
We still live in the greatest country on the face of the earth and we still have a responsibility to one another.
The Light or the Darkness. The choice is up to each and every one of us.
Little children, you are from God and have overcome them, for he who is in you is greater than he who is in the world. 1 John 4:14 (ESV)
