Quotation for the New Year
Now that we've rung in a new year, no better way to start it off than to remember this Message from John Adams to the Officers of the First Brigade of the Third Division of the Militia of Massachusetts.
"Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other." - John AdamsSomehow or another our country seems to have gotten away from both requirements to make our constitution work for us. What is needed is for our people and our representatives in Washington to get back to our Judeo-Christian roots, and stay there ... regardless of whatever the beliefs and wishes of the current occupant of the White House are (after all, who really knows?).
As Congressman J. Randy Forbes (R-Va) asks, and answers ... in response to Barack Obama declaring that America is not a Judeo-Christan nation, ..."Did America ever consider itself a Judeo-Christian nation?" and "If America was once a Judeo-Christian nation, when did it cease to be?" on the floor of the US House:
While it is true that America is now made up of people of many faiths, and some with no faith at all, most reasonable people (this requirement omits liberal-progressives, of course) understand that the constitution was based on the Judeo-Christian ethic. Principals and values are important to a society. It is the people who decide who they are represented by and many have values consistent with our Judeo-Christian heritage. Although the government has not and should not establish a belief in any religion, nonetheless it should represent the morals and values of our founders, our constitution, and the majority of it's people (78.5% identify themselves as Christians) if it is to serve the people well and if we are to survive as the "America" of our founders and the constitution upon which our nation was founded.
