As I’ve read and listened to the new just over the last several days, I just keep wondering what our country is and has been transforming to.
As I’ve stated before, I no longer believe the fight in this country is between Republicans and Democrats or liberals vs. conservatives, per se. I believe our fight is clearly one on many fronts: good vs. evil, anti-Capitalists vs. Capitalists, immoral vs. moral, and haters-of-Americans vs. America lovers, and freedom suppressors vs. freedom lovers. This includes clear assaults on our markets, upon Christians, upon patriots, our military, and our system of laws.
Much of the most recent news gives a great glimpse into the country we are becoming and have become. As you read these examples, think to yourself if this is the country you want now and one you wish to leave to your kids and grandkids.
We’ve sat on the sidelines for far too long while we’ve allowed these assaults on our institutions to fester and grow. It is a sad state of affairs. And the current administration and Congress has done virtually nothing to make it better and almost everything to make it worse.
I give you, my fellow citizens, a snapshot of your country in the Spring, 2010:
Patriotism no longer accepted: Students sent home for wearing American flag to school on Cinco de Mayo
A group of California students who dared to wear the American flag on Cinco de Mayo learned a hard lesson about the corruption of citizenship and sovereignty this week.
They were sent home for their show of U.S. patriotism.
No bounds to immorality and perversion: It’s official: Cher’s gender-swap son Chaz Bono is legally a man The disgusting details:
Bono started undergoing gender-reassignment surgery in March 2009 – soon after turning 40.
In an interview last year, he said undergoing the surgery was ‘the best decision I’ve ever made’.
He said: ‘I feel so much more comfortable than I’ve ever been.
‘I’ve felt male as far back as I can remember. Life is short and life is precious. This is who I am. I need to finally be who I am.’
He explained that the entire transition from female to male will take about four to five years.
So far, his breasts have been removed and he has received hormone treatments to deepen his voice. And to his delight, he now has to shave his face.
As one commenter in the news article stated clearly:
“What should be discussed as a psychiatric disorder is instead being celebrated, at least by this nutty girl and a few like-minded gawkers.
“Anyone can be confused and uncomfortable, have pieces removed and foreign pieces sewn on, and take hormones to change all sorts of things. It does not change what you were created to be. It only creates an illusion.”
Intolerance of Christianity and free speech: National Day of Prayer ruled unconstitutional & Franklin Graham disinvited to speak at Prayer event because of his views on Islam.
Evangelist Franklin Graham prayed on a sidewalk outside the Pentagon Thursday after his invitation to a prayer service inside was withdrawn because of comments that insulted Muslims.
“It looks like Islam has gotten a pass,” he told reporters. “They are able to have their services, but just because I disagree … I’m excluded.”
Kudos to Graham for defending his beliefs and Jesus Christ and hanging tough amidst his Biblically prophetic outright persecution. Since when is it not OK to profess the Christian faith and belief? Maybe since Obama said, “We are no longer a Christian Nation“. More Graham:
He (Graham) said he doesn’t believe “all religions are equal” and that there is only “one way to God” — and that is through Jesus.
Asked if he still believes Islam is evil, he said: “I believe the way they treat women is evil, yes I do.” And, can he understand how some of his comments would be offensive to Muslims? “Oh, I’m sure,” he said. “But I find what they teach and what they preach and what’s on the Internet — I find that to be offensive, too.”
Another moment in the press conference, he said people shouldn’t be offended because it’s simply a disagreement in what people believe.
Last time I checked, Franklin Graham runs an organization for helping the poor, downtrodden, and abused. They are active in Haiti, Chile, Nashville and more currently helping with disasters. He comes from perhaps the most ethical of families but is persecuted for calling evil what it is. Islam is not a religion of love and helping fellow man, but is an authoritative one of suppression, threats, and violence and one that condemns those who disagree with its tenets.
Franklin Graham prays for Muslims with whom he disagrees. But in Islam, Graham is an infidel and worthy of death. Can the contrast be any more stark?

Of course, not all is lost in America. I hold out great hope that the uprising of American patriots will turn back the tide of this assault on America.
But reality is reality and these headlines are but a snapshot in time of our country right now. Would the founders even recognize us anymore? Just ponder the thought and think/pray about what it is that you might be able to offer to our country to change it back to what it was meant to be.
