EXECUTIVE SUMMARY:

  • Roe v. Wade - The senseless slaughter of over 65 million unborn children leads the way in the government's decision-making "Hall of Shame"

  • Lemon v. Kurtzman - The government (SCOTUS) issued a ruling that essentially keeps religion at arms-length in the public square in DEFIANCE of our First Amendment rights
  • Public Schools - The removal of religious artifacts, biblical instruction, prayer, the 10 Commandments, and the Bible itself all have contributed to the unraveling of our nation
  • Redefinition of Religion - Once again, the secular Supreme Court took it upon themselves to redefine religion away from traditional and historical mores and norms
  • Redefinition of Marriage – Biblical marriage is between one man and one woman as biologically determined (End of story)

 

FULL COMMENTARY

Over the course of the last 250 years, the United States government has made public policy decisions that have been a full-frontal attack on the beliefs of God's Church.

1. Roe v. Wade - The senseless slaughter of over 65 million unborn children leads the way in the government's decision-making "Hall of Shame."

2. Johnson Amendment - This decision has rendered many of our Clergy/Pastors in America "useless" in helping to protect our American freedoms and our unalienable rights.

This amendment restricts the freedoms that churches and their leaders have in helping to shape the political process for FEAR of losing their tax-exempt status. Unfortunately, it’s “follow the money” in many respects.

As part of the I.R.S. Code that relates to church authority it states, "and which does not participate in, or intervene in (including the publishing or distributing of statements), any political campaign on behalf of (or in opposition to) any candidate for public office."

The Johnson Amendment is unconstitutional. No church has ever lost its 501(C)(3) status. Why? Because the I.R.S. will not enforce or challenge any church for fear it would bubble up to the Supreme Court of the United States. It’s a CLEAR violation of Separation of Church and State and this code entangles our government in the affairs of religion while  inhibiting religious activity.

There is legal precedence on the books to STOP this government attack if it ever gets to the Supreme Court.

3. Lemon v. Kurtzman - The government (SCOTUS) issued a ruling that essentially keeps religion at arms-length in the public square in DEFIANCE of our First Amendment rights. It states.......

a. Laws must be secular in nature
b. Laws must neither advance nor inhibit religion
c. Laws must not entangle government in the affairs of religion

This legal precedence is the perfect catch-22 or circular reasoning proposition that strikes down any court decision that hints, either directly or indirectly, at religious association.

At that time, the makeup of the Supreme Court was secular humanist in nature.

4. Public Schools - The removal of religious artifacts, biblical instruction, prayer, the 10 Commandments, and the Bible itself all have contributed to the unraveling of our nation.

This is NOT what our Founding Fathers envisioned. They crafted the design of the First Amendment so that there would be a compatibility between Church and State and NOT a wedge. The secular humanists want a wedge so they can maintain a monopolistic stranglehold on their state sponsored church. i.e., SECULAR HUMANISM.

5. Redefinition of Religion - Once again, the secular Supreme Court took it upon themselves to redefine religion away from traditional and historical mores and norms.

6. Redefinition of Marriage – Biblical marriage is between one man and one woman as biologically determined. End of story.

SCOTUS decided that religion can be anything you want it to be. In their eyes, what constitutes the actual meaning of religion is completely and ultra-relativistic. Anything goes! This thinking has greatly torn down a belief in a Creator God and/or a Trinity understanding (Torcaso v. Watkins + United States v. Seeger).

In conclusion, these actions by our government officials have been designed to stifle the growth of God's Church while fostering and propagating the tenets of the SECULAR HUMANIST religion on our shores which now has a complete monopoly in the public square. Where are the people of faith? Where are our Pastors?

PRAY for bold leaders who can change this wretched dynamic.
