GOD BLESS AMERICA?

 

WHY SHOULD HE, HA?

 

We, as a collective nation, Christian, Catholic, Jewish, Muslim, Atheist, what have you, have gone out of our way (whether we individually agreed or not, even passivity is co-signing it) to eradicate Christ from every public institution and prevent anyone from speaking about God even outside certain parameters INSIDE THE FOUR WALLS of a church edifice.

 

That’s like kicking someone off a team and asking them to come and pinch hit because you know they’re guaranteed to drive in the game winning runs in the bottom of the 9th, then jettison them off from the team immediately afterward once again. When are the United States going to get it? You cannot have your proverbial cake and eat it, too.

 

I don’t care what your religious beliefs are and subsequently what your political allegiances, sexual orientation and feng shui are, for that matter, you just can’t have it both ways. Pick a side. Any side. But pick a stance and stick with it. All the wavering (i.e. lukewarmness) is maddening to everyone, including God (Revelation 3).

 

If we are gonna completely be a godless society, then leave God out of the affairs completely. You’ve erased his name from every public institution (nearly), bottle cans (Pepsi), websites, etc. You hear this song “God Bless America” being sung at ball games, but is it out of rote or tradition? Otherwise, if God is no longer welcome in any other area of our lives, why do we sing these goofy songs, just because Paul Revere and an aging George Washington once did?

 

AND FURTHERMORE…

 

Why do people who vehemently profess to be anti-Christian in their ways make vows before God and want to be blessed in “holy matrimony” when they proudly confess that they do not know God, do not care to, and even say that He does not exist (their right to believe that for sure, but by bother with the “red tape” if the basis for your vows and routines is just that — routine?)

 

I could go on, as you know, but I shan’t.

 

Trivia Question (ha): “DO YOU STAND AND TAKE OFF YOUR OVERSIZED FITTED AT SPORTING EVENTS, OR DO YOU TURN YOUR BACK IN TOTAL NEGATION A LA CARLOS DELGADO AND OTHERS?”

 

DISCUSS…
