Billy Graham's Prayer For Our Nation

: 'Heavenly Father, we come before you today to ask your forgiveness and to seek your direction and guidance.
We know Your Word says, 'Woe to those who call evil good,' but that is exactly what we have done.

We have lost our spiritual equilibrium and reversed our values. We have exploited the poor and called it the lottery.

We have rewarded laziness and called it welfare.

We have killed our unborn and called it choice.

We have shot abortionists and called it justifiable.

We have neglected to discipline our children and called it building self esteem.

We have abused power and called it politics.

We have coveted our neighbor's possessions and called it ambition.

We have polluted the air with profanity and pornography and called it freedom of expression.

We have ridiculed the time-honored values of our forefathers and called it enlightenment.

Search us, Oh God, and know our hearts today; cleanse us from every sin and Set us free.
: Amen!'

Rights and freedoms under attack

In the last few years we have heard a lot of talk from the political left and the proponents of "political correctness" about how the political right and the Christian right want to take away our hard earned rights and freedoms. At the same time The ACLU has gone out of its way to and doubled its efforts to remove "God" and all mention of "God" and creationism from everywhere publicly seen or heard. These two groups have also fought bitterly for control of the High Courts. Are the two campaigns of public opinion and policy connected and why?
I believe that these groups are closely related and that their leaders have a single minded agenda. Consider that the foundation of this great country is the "Declaration of Independence" and the subsequent "Constitution" and "Bill of Rights". All of these documents were written by mostly the same founding fathers with the goal of creating a new nation of free people. All of the freedoms and rights of United States citizenship spring from these documents. What was their basis for thinking that we should and could have such freedoms?

"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." —

There it is, those certain unalienable rights were endowed upon men by their "CREATOR"! If the creator can be eliminated then the rights are not unalienable. Further more the intire basis of the constitution and our government crumble into nonexistance. The enemies of freedoms and rights are not the religious right or "Constructionist" judges, it is the left and ACLU. Under the guise of fighting for one persons right to not hear or see any opinion or belief contrary to their own they are chopping away at the supports of all freedom.
It is interesting how they fought against "one nation under God" in the pledge of alliegence. If it is nation is not under God, then it is divided. No matter what our political disagreements have been in the past, when attacked from outside we have always united and stood together under God and fought for what the Judeo/Christian ethic has taught was civil and humane. With this in mind the left has even removed "so help us God" from Roosevelt's "Day of Infamy" speech as inscribed on its Washington Memorial. A historical revision to rival anything the old Soviet Union ever published to be sure! The next battle on their list is "In God We trust" on our money.
What could their motive be except to tumble the government by the total corruption of the Constitution. And what kind of government would they establish? To save time I am copying a newsletter from "Constitutionally Speaking" by Devvy Kidd, published in WorldNet

'The ACLU was founded in the 1920s by Roger Baldwin and Crystal Eastman, described as a "progressive" and "the perfect feminist."
Earl Browder was general secretary of the Communist Party of the United States from 1930 through its dissolution in 1944. When the party was reconstituted as the Communist Political Association later that year, Browder was chosen as its president. Browder proudly proclaimed that the ACLU functioned as "a transmission belt" for the party. To deny the ACLU's founding was attached at the hip to communist organizations is to deny what can easily be proven as truth.
For the past few decades, the ACLU has been on a major crusade to destroy Christianity in America, promote filth under "freedom of speech and expression," and of course, vigorously defend the homosexual culture of death. On Jan. 10, 1963, Congressman Albert S. Herlong Jr., D-Fla., read a list of 45 communist goals into the Congressional Record. Below are the communist goals being implemented by the ACLU in their quest to destroy America's culture and traditions:

Use technical decisions of the courts to weaken basic American institutions, by claiming their activities violate civil rights.
Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for socialism and current communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of teachers associations. Put the party line in textbooks.
Continue discrediting American culture by degrading all form of artistic expression. An American communist cell was told to "eliminate all good sculpture from parks and buildings," substituting shapeless, awkward and meaningless forms.
Control art critics and directors of art museums. "Our plan is to promote ugliness, repulsive, meaningless art."
Eliminate all laws governing obscenity by calling them "censorship" and a violation of free speech and free press.
Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio and television.
Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as "normal, natural and healthy."
Infiltrate the churches and replace revealed religion with "social" religion. Discredit the Bible and emphasize the need for intellectual maturity, which does not need a "religious crutch."
Eliminate prayer or any phase of religious expression in the schools on the grounds that it violates the principle of "separation of church and state."
Belittle all forms of American culture and discourage the teaching of American history on the ground that it was only a minor part of "the big picture." Give more emphasis to Russian history since the communists took over. Obliterating the American past, with its antecedents in principles of freedom, liberty and private ownership is a major goal of the communists then and now.
Support any socialist movement to give centralized control over any part of the culture – education, social agencies, welfare programs, mental health clinics, etc.
Discredit the family as an institution. Encourage promiscuity and easy divorce.'
Devy Kidd

Does anyone remember the various Communist revolutions and the bloodbaths that followed. Was there any "Freedom" that resulted or upgrade in the standards of living. Does anyone remeber what happened to ideas of faith and God under the various socialist governments.
Rights and freedoms are only maintained where God is held high. Furthermore the rights, freedoms and respect for women is only held high in Christian nations.
Christians get out of the political left!!
