ELDER PATRIOT – America was founded on “the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God… 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.”
Many of the Islamist radicals that Obama has invited into our country at taxpayer expense do not share these beliefs and they are ready to use violence to prevent us from enjoying our rights and freedoms.
Who are they and how many of them now walk among us? No one knows the answers to those questions and therein lies the problem.
While we would like to believe that generosity and charity is received in good faith by all who enter our country recent terror attacks teaches us that is nothing more than childish naiveté.
Those opening their doors to offer charity to others always maintain the right to change their mind when they learn that they can no longer afford the cost or that their own wellbeing is at risk. That doesn’t make them anti-religious freedom or anti-American. It makes them smart.
Contrary to the claims by President Obama “Islam has been woven into the fabric of our country since its founding,” it wasn’t.
The Founding Fathers believed in a good and righteous God and encouraged Americans to worship that God as they saw fit. They never contemplated an invading death cult cloaked as a religion that would be intent on the extermination of all other religions.
On the fortieth anniversary of D-Day, Ronald Reagan standing “on a lonely, windswept point on the northern shore of France,” gave us guidance that is as prescient today as it has ever been:
The men of Normandy had faith that what they were doing was right, faith that they fought for all humanity, faith that a just God would grant them mercy on this beachhead or on the next. It was the deep knowledge — and pray God we have not lost it — that there is a profound, moral difference between the use of force for liberation and the use of force for conquest. You were here to liberate, not to conquer, and so you and those others did not doubt your cause. And you were right not to doubt.
As we celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ we should pause to remember not only the role that our Judeo-Christian heritage played in guiding the thinking of our nation’s Founders but also how his gospel inspired our men in battle and we should ask ourselves why only wise men seek Him?
