With all the crises hitting this country one wonders what will hit next. So far we've been threatened with the fiscal cliff crisis, the debt ceiling crisis, gun control crisis, climate change crisis, a religious freedom crisis, an immigration crisis, and I'm sure there are quite a few I missed. I agree with Franklin Graham who said we are facing a spiritual crisis, which is causing all the other crises, and I'm sure we haven't seen the end of it yet.
When you look back on the history of this country things were going pretty well up until the liberals got prayer banned from school, got the separation of church and state redefined and then to top it all off the Supreme Court ruled it was OK to kill babies. Fifty-five million babies and counting have been sacrificed on the altar of convenience since Roe vs. Wade making one wonder how all these dead babies would have impacted life as we know it today. I'm sure these babies would have increased our population and work force by over 100 million providing who knows how many jobs and tax dollars to the country. Instead the president wants to legalize 11 million criminals by making them citizens, which would have been unnecessary if we hadn't killed all the babies that would have been doing all the work these illegals are doing.
But instead we are facing all these crises and wondering what is coming next, a country ready to go bankrupt, Social Security going bankrupt, morals gone bankrupt, big cities turned into war zones, New York state banning guns and requiring gun registration, and we hear now the litmus test for top military brass is if they will fire on American citizens.
Once a country turns its back on God things go bad in a hurry and all the evidence is here all we have to do is look at it and recognize it for what it is. It's high time to turn back to God before it's too late.
When the Nazis came to power Germany was broke, they had gun registration, the state controlled the church, the state strictly regulated the banks and private industry, and it was legal to kill certain people. Sound familiar? By the way "it's O.K. to kill a baby when?" Pretty soon we can ask, "it's O.K. to kill an elderly or handicapped person when?"
