Excuse me, Mr. President, but the New Testament, not the Old (a historical account of the era’s events and immoral practices), represents the true teachings of Christ. And exactly how is Sharia law – those tenets denying women basic human rights, condoning sex with children and killing gays for merely existing – the moral high ground or an acceptable alternative to anything? I too can tear apart politically convenient misconceptions but without resorting to distorting religious texts. America, our very laws and cultural norms – from liberty to marriage and our fabled work ethic – was founded upon Judeo-Christian principles. The Ten Commandments, espoused by the life and testament of Jesus, aren’t mythical creatures for your secular entertainment. They’re woven into the ethical framework of our judicial system and embody the very moral crux of our culture: murder, theft, false witness, envy, adultery, blasphemy, honor, diligence, respect and even forgiveness to name but a few. These values represent the very cornerstones of Western Civilization and are typically the most synonymous with universal moral codes…religious connotation or not. If you don’t like this inescapable truth, too damn bad; America is indelibly a Christian nation regardless of your quoted percentage of nonbelievers.
In case you forgot, and I’m sure you did, the First Amendment wasn’t designed to protect government from our religious values; it was designed to protect our religious values from government tyranny. The infinite wisdom of our Forefathers’ own writings speak to this immutable fact. Yes, it is entirely possible to honor and instill these timeless ideals without forcing citizens to be Christian, or any other denomination for that matter, while still respecting the necessity of religious freedom. Separation of Church and State, a liberal fabrication and fallacy, is literally impossible when the society you govern is constructed upon biblical doctrine and Judeo-Christian ethics; i.e., man’s natural rights are derived from God, not bestowed by “benevolent” government. Sorry, Mr. President, but you’re in the wrong country and on the wrong side of history! If you stop blindly hating America, Christians and Jews for one discernible moment, you’ll discover you’re simply the depraved, angry product of ignorant leftists and radical Marxists. Salvation is for those who seek it; not those who mock it! America doesn’t need a soulless dictator; it needs a deliverer from evil.
PS…the exit is on the left; the far left!
