Great nations have one prevalent and compelling shared characteristic. They all have a strong national identity. The people and the leaders of the nation know and understand who they are and what they are about. There is an unspoken sentiment as to their purpose on the world stage and more importantly, there is a connection among the people which is attributed to a common moral code and language.
Without a recognizable national identity there is no cohesion among the citizenry. There is no common bond which tethers people from all different walks of life. And contrary to the misinformation of political correctness and the destructive nature of multiculturalism, the assimilation of all immigrants is critical to the maintenance of a national identity.
A nation, which does not embrace a definitive code of ethical behavior that establishes a clear cut blueprint for the law of the land, will never rise to greatness nor will it survive. A consistent value system is crucial to the election of our leaders, domestic policy, foreign policy, national security, and in particular, our judicial system.
It is faith or the lack thereof that sets the direction for a country’s virtuous or not-so virtuous purpose. And the teachings of Christianity have been the compass for the principles which conceived the United States Constitution. Christianity molded and shaped the framework for the Supreme Law of the land. And it is because of the Judeo-Christian precepts that immigrants from around the world have flocked to the United States.
Supreme Court Justice Joseph Story was appointed to the court by James Madison and served on the court in the early 1800s. Justice Story publicly declared, “One of the beautiful boasts of our municipal jurisprudence is that Christianity is a part of the Common Law. There never has been a period in which the Common Law did not recognize Christianity as lying at its foundation. I verily believe Christianity necessary to the support of civil society.”
Supreme Court Justice John Mclean was appointed to the court by Andrew Jackson. He was clear on his interpretation of Christianity as a priority for the American government. And he said, “For many years, my hope for the perpetuity of our institutions has rested on Bible morality and the dissemination of Christian principles. This is an element which did not exist in the ancient republics. It is a basis in which free governments may be maintained through all time. Free government is not a self-moving machine. Our mission of freedom is not carried out by brute force, by canon law, or any other law except the moral law and those Christian principles which are found in the Scriptures.”
Supreme Court Justice Earl Warren was appointed by Dwight David Eisenhower, and he stated, “I believe the entire Bill of Rights came into being because of the knowledge our forefathers had of the Bible and their belief in it; freedom of belief, of expression, of petition, dignity of the individual, the sanctity of the home, equal justice under the law, and the reservations of the powers to the people. I like to believe we are living today in the spirit of the Christian religion. I like also to believe as long as we do so, no great harm can come to our country.”
In 1947 President Harry Truman quoted the Supreme Court staring, “This is a Christian Nation. More than a half century ago that declaration was written into the decrees of the highest court in this land in an 1892 decision.”
Don Federer, a Jewish columnist who writes for the Boston Herald wrote, “Clearly this nation was established by Christians. As a Jew, I am entirely comfortable with the concept of Christian America.”
The accounts of Supreme Court Justices and federal judges giving credit to Christianity for the preservation of the republic are too numerous to mention. Revisionists have rewritten our history books and omitted the references of Christianity and the role it played in our nation’s founding and duration.
Globalism depends on the absence of Christianity from the western culture. Multiculturalism must replace Christianity as the deity of America. Progressives cannot allow America to continue to stand as a Christian Nation. The United States of America must be reestablished as a secular nation so as to abolish its national identity as a Christian Nation.
And as America loses her national identity, she loses her sovereignty. Destroying the Christian face of America is the linchpin for globalists.
Immigrants to America have the right to worship as they please. They are not encouraged or discouraged to practice Christianity. However, they are not free to come to America, refuse to assimilate, and extinguish our national identity. They are neither forced to participate in our customs and traditions, nor are they relieved of their responsibility to respect our customs and traditions.
Because like it or not, America is a Christian Nation.
