Merry Christmas

Christ our Lord is born this day.  Praise God from whom all blessings flow.

This nation was founded by Christians on Christian principles.  George Washington was Anglican and never left the church.  He would not allow homosexuals to serve in the Continental Army.  He even tossed out those who were discovered as serving in the army.  Our nation had moral principles and even under the Jefferson administration the Federal government paid for priests to be sent to help convert Indians to Christ.

Since then we have taken religion out of public schools.  We don't allow children to sing Christmas carols or to pray in classes anymore.  We allow rap music instead and permit swearing.  We deny Christians to use school property to have a Christian school club, but we permit homosexuals and pagans to have school clubs.

The Church of England was the official church of the English government at the time of the American Revolution.  When the United States was founded we did not want to force government officials to be of any specific official religion.  So we devised a separation of church and state.  It was never intended to keep people from praying at public events, or display religious symbols or Nativities.  Now we have freedom from religion as the norm.  Don't allow anyone to speak about their religious belief, if they are Christians.  Christians face discrimination from our own government, a government founded on religious freedom.  How ironic; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.
