Absolutely Superb

The article from which this quote comes is absolutely superb. I could have profitably quoted much, much more from it. If I could write like this, I would own myself a writer. Emphasis is mine:
Since God no longer exists in government, and his history there is no longer taught, is it any wonder that millions upon millions of Americans believe, in utter opposition to the founding philosophy, that our rights come from the government? Where else would they come from? And should it be any surprise if those same Americans desire that the government give them other things as well? After all, if our rights are not by the grace of God but by the grace of government, then whoever controls the government has the ultimate authority over man. Government by definition can do no wrong. This is precisely the kind of thinking our Founders literally warred against. It is also precisely why Americans of all faiths should be proud to own America’s Christian Heritage, and why without it, America is lost.
“God who gave us life gave us liberty. And can the liberties of a nation be thought secure when we have removed their only firm basis, a conviction in the minds of the people that these liberties are the Gift of God? That they are not to be violated but with His wrath? Indeed, I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just; that His justice cannot sleep forever.” - Thomas Jefferson,
“Whatever we once were, we are no longer a Christian Nation…” - Barack Obama, “Christian”
Hat Tip to the inimitable Kat.

And just as an afterthought, it occurs to me that people who enjoy that article might also enjoy Benson Bobrick's Wide as the Waters.

  1. Yup, I definitely thought you'd be one of the ones who would appreciate this article. I used to have Big Hollywood on my RSS, but things got too crowded and I took it off. Now I swing by once a week or so for a scan, and I'm very glad I did!
