Prologue The Secular Agenda -- Activating a Christian Response

Introduction Secular & Christian Forces Battle for America's Status as a Secular or Christian Nation

Chapter 1: Religion & Tyranny Our founders intended that America be a Christian Nation, governed by laws based upon the Judeo-Christian Ethic.  They did not write Christianity into the Constitution, Bill of Rights, or the Declaration of Independence overtly.  Rather, our founding documents and the acts of Congress reveal the implicit hand of Christianity guiding them.  The founders had just experienced the Revolutionary War, a war fought at least in part to liberate themselves from England which required allegiance to a state approved religion.  Even so, they realized that social organization depends on the general public embrace and self-imposed compliance with a common underlying moral system.  The current political correctness contends that the group moral system is a Secular Humanist belief in man's inherent goodness and knowledge of truth.  When the group spirit rejects Christianity, we will have only our heritage to fall back upon to return us to our roots.  Thus, to maintain our status as a Christian Nation, we must remain vigilant against the pulls on each generation to worship other gods.  The Old Testament account of the Children of Israel clearly illustrates the fickle nature of man's heart.  The founders did not declare us to be a Christian nation by law because of the tendency of men to fall into the temptation of imposing a religious tyranny.  Instead, they depended upon the general populace to propagate Christianity throughout the culture and maintain our spiritual lineage.  For this reason, government was restricted from interfering with the practice of Christian worship and doctrine.  The founders depended upon an unrestricted consideration of the issues of Biblical morality in the process of writing legislation.  Integral to this process of creating a common Christian moral system, our culture must produce statesmen, judges, and informed citizens.  To perpetuate this generational lineage of Christian morality, we must teach our children the principles of Christianity in the public schools to propagation the faith to the youth and thereby maintain our moral structure as a Christian Nation.  We are a government of, by, and for the people, and as a Christian majority, we have the right to use the group morality to organize our laws, morals, and wisdom around the precepts of our beliefs about right and wrong, using the moral system we choose.  Non-Christians within our society can expect to receive the same public policy courtesies in matters of personal safety, respect of property, and equality before the law.  The non-Christian may disagree with the society's Christian-based laws, mores, and speech; but disagreement cannot be avoided within a society.  Every citizen should be equal before the law, receiving punishment or reward according to his good or evil deeds.  The Constitution does not require homogeneity of belief, only compliance with the law.  And the Constitution itself should reflect the absolute truth of God's plan for man.  To the extend that the Constitution veers from God's perfect standard, it should be amended.

Chapter 2: Freedom of Speech  The Board of Commissioners of Marion County allowed an "Adopt a Road" sign sponsored by the American Nazi party on the grounds of their Freedom of Speech.  The absurdity of believing that they must give an evil organization equal access to a government controlled medium of persuasion indicates the level of distortion we have allowed into our group conscience.  The question becomes, how did we stray so far from the ability to judge rightly?  The answer to this question is that we have allowed the tolerance of sexual perversion to be legislated into our body of law by embracing the Secular Humanist dogma of tolerance and their worldview which rejects Biblical judgment.  Without embracing the Biblical standard of righteousness, upon which our country was founded, we risk losing right perspective on matters of grave importance.  The end of such foolishness is the destruction of the nation because of improper action against economic, military, ecologic, and social threats which could destroy our nation, just as they have destroyed the many which have collapsed before ours.

Chapter 3: The Godly Judiciary Terri Schiavo was murdered by the American Legal System because of its allegiance to interpret law according to the Secular Humanist morality.  A severely disabled adult was killed by State-ordered starvation and dehydration by purposefully focusing on the law that established her husband as the guardian of her life.  The court disregarded the surrounding circumstances of her husband's life and the willingness of her parents to continue her care.  They argued that these specific issues were not included as allowable legal considerations in such cases.  Thus, the ruling to end her life was supported by literal interpretation of the words of law, but it could not be justified by laws subservient to God's Law.  As a nation, we should view case law as precedent to guide judgments, but it should never trump the spirit of God's Law.  The courts should moderate their passion to follow legal precedent so that individual circumstances can modify the law to conform to the higher morality that human law should reflect.  Clearly the specifics of the Terri Schiavo case were not previously legislated.  But, such legislation should not have been necessary because God's law is always the implicit legal background upon which to refer in judging complex cases.  Thus, the courts claimed that they were bound by the law as they interpreted it.  They justified their position by declaring that ruling to give custody to her parents would have required legislation that specifically authorized such action.  But, even when the Florida legislature and US Congress passed such legislation, the Courts ruled that passing laws to govern in specific circumstances was unConstitutional.  Thus, the courts freed themselves to act on the letter of the law as they interpreted it according to their Secular Humanist moral system.  But, the courts ignored the Constitutional fact that Congress has the right to set the limits of judicial authority, and they responded as masters rather than servants.  Even though the courts engaged in gross judicial activism driven by a Secular Humanist bias, they did not acknowledge their organizing worldview.  Rather, they hid behind the plausible shield of strict legal interpretation of the mandates of law.  Those who criticized the President and Congress for legislating to deal with the specifics of this case, cried that such an effort to adjudicate and legislate under the guidance of a higher moral system were doing so at the risk of destroying the foundations of law.  But, these critics were ignoring the fact that human legislation is inherently general and requires the reference to an underlying moral base to modify judgment in the consideration of each unique circumstance.  The Left's interpretation of law has an implicit Secular Humanist bias.  They cannot claim to legislate according to a neutral, religion-free perspective; nor are they able judge without prejudice to their underlying moral code.  As a nation we should recognize and embrace the Judeo-Christian ethic as the moral foundation that should guide and govern the execution of our legal system in its specific application.  Without overtly recognizing and acknowledging our allegiance to the True God, the spiritual vacuum will be filled by the judicial influence of other gods.  The letter of the law will likewise rule and kill if we do not place the law under subjection to the mercy of God's Holy Spirit.  The nation will suffer if we bow to any but the one true Lord God the Father of Jesus the Christ.

Chapter 3: Right to Privacy Privacy has been exalted as one of the cardinal virtues of society.  It has been used to justify homosexual sodomy and abortion.  John Gilmore has refused to show his identity to the airlines before traveling, claiming that such a requirement is a violation of his right to privacy.

Chapter 4: The Supreme Court & Christianity  As a society we must decide if we want to be a Christian or a Secular nation.  The Secular Humanists claim they are not a religion, but their precepts have all the markings of religion.  The Secular Humanists wish to enforce the removal of all Christian symbols, words, and acts from the sphere of public funded influence.  Thus, in effect, they wish to use the power of government to enforce the imposition of a Secular Humanist state.  The Secular Humanists contend that the founders intended that we be a Secular nation, having no identifiable religion in the marketplace of society.  They note the historical evidence of abuses perpetrated by a government directed by the church.  Their trump card is always the First Amendment and the supposed implication of a "Separation of Church and State."  But, "Separation" is not a Constitutional concept.  And, neither the Secular Humanists nor the Christians will back down in submitting to the domination of the culture by the other's religion. 

Chapter 5: The Group Moral Ethic  The Left wing media and political pundits have characterized the Christians and Republicans as corrupt and morally depraved as a political strategy.  The Left elevate themselves to the apparent moral high ground by accusing the Administration of lies, callous disregard for life, and policies driven by money and power.  The Right appealed to the "values" voters by standing against abortion of the unborn, homosexual marriage, euthanasia, and Clinton's infidelity; this position appealed to the moral sensibilities of God fearing Americans, resulting in their victory in both houses of Congress and the Presidency.  The Left has attempted to employ this same strategy and give the appearance of moral superiority by smearing the Right with accusations of torture, blood for oil, cronyism with Arabs, and vilifying the Patriot Act as a power grab for Big Brother.  The list is endless; they generate new accusations or corruption from each day's news.  Every act of defense and policy is twisted to appear as though driven by base motives.  Likewise, the Democrat/Left liberally uses the ad hominum attack to tarnish the motives and character of the Right.  The Christian Right's current alliance with the Republican Party is framed as a deceptive political ploy by the Republican Big Business shadow-masters who use the naive Christian voters to give democratic weight to their initiatives for power and money while giving only lip service those moral issues important to the Christian voting block.  The criticism of Bush and the Republicans for the "Medical Consequences of using Depleted Uranium in Iraq" is only one example of this type of connection of the Republican-Christian Right for policies which can be only vaguely connected with the Bush Administration.  As a society, we should be actually raising our moral standards by encouraging an individual and group worship of the Christian God.  Only then do we place ourselves in a position of true moral superiority where God can bless us supernaturally.  The acts and faith of the nation's people and its leaders produce benefit inherently due to the right and workable nature of the actions pursued by such a people.  In addition, the supernatural blessing of God is manifested by the unseen hand moving in the minds of people and subtle physical world modifications to coordinate beneficial outcomes for a people of faith and devotion.
