Since America's inception in 1776 and before, God has had his hand of blessing and protection upon this country. This shooting serves as another example of God's hand being lifted, little by little, step by step. I believe our nation is reaping what we have sown. Little by little and step by step, we have done our darnedest to throw God out of the courtroom and classroom, the bedroom and boardroom. This downward spiral officially began in 1947 when the U.S. Supreme Court ruled on Everson v. Board of Education. In it, they came up with what I would call "quintessential stupidity" when they destroyed the intended meaning of the famous words written by Thomas Jefferson: "separation of church and state." This was followed by Madelyn Murray O'Hare, Engel v. Vitale, and the elimination of prayer in public schools in 1962. A harbinger of these things occurred in 1925 with the Scope's Monkey trial. The common denominator in all of this is a diabolical group known as the American Civil Liberties Union, which must be credited with firing the first shot that triggered the avalanche of manure that now raises its stench all across our land. They knew the fastest way to bring about change was through the courts, thereby bypassing the executive and legislative branches of government. In our present system of government, good and decent politicians seem powerless to do anything radically constructive. The church seems more concerned about maintaining the status quo. Many respectable pastors have abandoned their roles as prophetic voices and given themselves over to worshipping their tax exempt status. Some science teachers have given up their free speech by teaching evolution without the balance of creationism or intelligent design. Many school administrators have failed to draw a line in the sand by not standing up against the onslaught of political correctness. While evil triumphs and shootings continue, we have become a nation of pusillanimous wimps. ...May God have mercy!
