The Promised Land

Tags: , , , , , , ,



As described in the Book of Genesis (15:18-21), the land promised by God to the Israelites came to be known as “The Promised Land.” Over the centuries, “The Promised Land” evolved into a catch-all epithet for any society ripe with promise and opportunity.  The United States of America was once “The Promised Land.”  This is obvious in our Declaration of Independence, which states, “We hold these truths to be self evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that amongst these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.”


The key words in that statement are “unalienable” and “Creator” (God).  Defined as “impossible to take away or give up,” the concept of “unalienable” laid the foundation of our Republic, a nation of the people, by the people, and for the people.  “Creator” describes a being far greater than us, the Supreme Being who fashioned this world and everything and everyone upon it.  For nearly 200 years, our government honored our unalienable rights and demonstrated our faith in God.  But in recent years, the fabric of our “Promised Land” has unraveled.


Where the Supreme Being once permeated our way of life, right down to our currency (“In God We Trust”), God has now been usurped by civil law.  Secular groups now challenge our religious freedoms, mounting concentrated attacks upon Christianity.  The Ten Commandments, whose principles form the basis of our law, have been removed from court houses.   Christians are no longer allowed to display The Cross or even humble Nativity scenes on public land.


Despite these facts, Congress still has a chaplain that opens sessions with a prayer!  That must surely be a slip, because the Supreme Court in the judicial branch of our government has ignored the tenets clearly spelled out in our Constitution.  The way the wind is blowing, the Supreme Court may change the unalienable rights bestowed upon us by our Creator.  If this occurs, the destruction of our “Promised Land,” of the land envisioned by our Founding Fathers, will come from within.  If it does, it won’t be the first time that a nation has committed the unthinkable.


In less than a century, Germany transformed itself from an aristocracy to a dictatorship.  Hitler’s “super race” and thirst for world domination sparked the torture and cold-blooded murder of six million Jewish people as well as three million Italians and Greeks, leading ultimately to World War ll.  This is what happens to a country when its people accept full control by government.


The America “of the people, by the people, and for the people” is rapidly becoming a government-controlled State.  The executive branch is assuming powers formerly controlled by Congress, as the rights of individual States are commandeered by the Federal government.  The precious freedoms we boast about are more rhetorical than cherished.  It’s starting to look like Springtime for Hitler again.


Our only defense is a vigilant citizenry to oversee government.  Such a citizenry will work to protect our God-given rights outlined in the Declaration of Independence.  This citizenry consists of me, you, our families, friends, neighbors, and co-workers.  It consists of communities defined not only by a geography that stretches from “sea to shining sea,” but by ideology.  Only when we band together can we preserve this land for ourselves as well as generations yet to come.

In the latest of episode of “How Low Can Ya Go?”, starring none other than the Politically Correct, busy Route 495 in North Bergen was recently festooned with a cheery holiday greeting. Funded by the American Atheists, the billboard in question depicts the Magi en route to the Christ child, with the endearing caption, “You know it’s a myth. This season, celebrate reason!”


In retaliation, a few weeks later, the Catholic League erected their own billboard across the river from the atheists’ handiwork on the New York-side approach to the Lincoln Tunnel. Theirs reads, “You know it’s real. This season, celebrate Jesus.”  God rest ye merry gentlemen and gentle women!  It’s good to know that your Sunday Mass donations are going to a good cause, instead of something frivolous such as feeding the starving heathens in third world nations.




Hey. I needed to get your attention.  Now that I’ve gotten it, here it comes: that all-important question, the one I hope gnaws at you at night.  The one I hope you will thrust into your Congressmen’s (and women’s) faces and then follow their resulting actions, and not their rhetoric, before you cast your next round of votes.  For, to paraphrase the great Reverend Fred Shuttlesworth*, “if we all get into the habit of doing nothing, then nothing gets done.”


So here’s the question. Did the atheists actually brainstorm and bankroll that billboard?


Or was it another group with a similar, yet far more insidious objective?


Consider the following factual events and relevant queries:


1.)  9/11 occurred in New York City and was engineered by radical Muslims (note the word “radical”, people!).  Proudly, the twisted bastards took credit for that mass, unprovoked slaughter of thousands and the destruction of lower Manhattan.  Is it a coincidence, then, that as hordes of motorists speed toward the Lincoln Tunnel, which links New Jersey with New York City, that the billboard appears there?

  

If the atheists really wanted to rile up the Christians, why not stick the billboard in Podunk, USA, where the Christians are a lot less liberal?  The thing would have been tarred and feathered and the militia called in to waylay the vigilantes looking for the heads of those who posted the billboard.  Wasn’t that the point of the billboard, to garner such a reaction?  So why choose the well-traveled approach to New York City?


If your answer is that more people will see it there than in Podunk, you have a point.  But look deeper please; this is post-9/11.


2.)  Liberal Democrats are in power now.  Forget John McCain for the moment; you know that, had the McCain team won in 2008, Sarah Palin would have been sitting in the White House before long.  But she’s not.  Thanks, in part, to a skewed, ultra-liberal press, her credibility has been compromised and there’s a long road ahead of her if she still has her eye on the White House.  Palin, whose Christian views irked the atheists hollering for separation of Church and State, wouldn’t allow her own 17-year-old kid to have an abortion.  A more zealous Christian public official is hard to find, even in the lower 48 States.  But Palin is now the star of her own reality TV series, not a serious threat to the atheists or their blood kin, the ACLU.   Again, why would the atheists bother to put up that billboard now?


3.)  In a prior article that I published here, I cited chapter and verse concerning the ACLU’s successful efforts to obliterate the Ten Commandments from U.S. court houses (plural) and to put the kabosh on Christmas tree lighting ceremonies from coast to coast.  God only knows what they did to Menorah lightings!  Well, newsflash: the biggest Christmas tree in the world, the one in Rockefeller Center got lit all right, just last night, as millions watched it courtesy of NBC.  Did the atheists really think that a single, albeit well-placed billboard was going to stop that annual event, or even put a damper on it?  Really???


My money’s on the psychotic radical Muslims, whose entire lives are, from infancy, devoted to the dismantling of Christianity and who plot the destruction of the U.S. of A., simply because we have everything they don’t  Chief among those things are freedom of speech and the freedom to practice our religions without persecution.  Think about it.


If you were the billboard publisher and if, in this economy, a bunch of bearded, crochet-capped dudes showed up in your office and tossed a wad of cash at you to erect their billboard — claiming all the while that they were atheists — you might take the money and run, too.


Before y’all go pointing at me as a fundamental Christian, don’t.  I left the Catholic Church willingly a long time ago.  It was a conscious decision.  I love Jesus, his earthly mother Mary, his heavenly Father and the sweet Holy Spirit, but I don’t love the Catholic Church.  Neither am I a deluded liberal or a hard-lined right-winger.  I’m an average citizen who’s learned to question the motives and actions of the media, religious organizations, big business, the government, and the many special interest groups that our government cossets.


I’m an average citizen who doesn’t like what she sees happening in this country.  I’m an average citizen who detests the perversion of our Constitution at the hands of those who twist its words to their own means.  When one seeks to destroy the inalienable right to “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness” — in this case, the right to honor one’s religion peacefully and yes, publicly — one does not do so in order to protect anyone’s life, liberty, and happiness, including one’s own.  Instead, one seeks to hammer this country into something diametrically opposed to the tenets upon which was founded.
