THE ISSUE IS NOT LIMITED TO PRO-LIFE.
THE ISSUE IS WHETHER AMERICA WILL HAVE A POLITICAL PARTY COMMITTED TO AFFIRMING VALUES GOD GAVE MAN TO LIVE BY.
From 1787 to 1947, 160 years, if you asked the leaders of the influential elite’s in America what the cornerstone was for the American experiment in self-government, most would respond the Bible, the Old and New Testament, the Judeo Christian ethic
These elite’s include, the Clergy, Medicine, Academia, Judiciary, the Media, Business, Labor and the two major political parties.
Atheistic forces set forth their agenda for America - to remove the influence of religion from our culture - in the Humanist Manifesto in 1933. It was a declaration of Atheism.
The game plan included taking over the direction of government schools in America. Read the agenda of the National Education Association. It is a major battleground in the cultural war waging in America.
The Judiciary of America, particularly at the federal level, was also a target for conquest of this atheistic movement.
In 1947, the U.S. Supreme Court obliged by writing a myth into an opinion. Separation of Church and State
Our founding fathers meant by the First Amendment, Freedom of Religion not Freedom from Religion.
Subsequent decisions of the U.S. Supreme Court and other courts in the ensuing 49 years have stolen the religious heritage on which the nation was founded.
The consequences to our culture have been devastating.
Following the Judicial rejection of natural law and the embracing of Relativism, the United States has become number one in the world in violent crime, divorce, and illegal drug use; number one in the Western World in teenage pregnancies, and number one
in the Industrial World in illiteracy. While America has always been a world leader, since 1962-1963 it have been leading in many of the wrong categories. Relativism and Positivism have not produced national betterment or prosperity, but rather their
The new Census Bureau data are shocking, although not unexpected, in one decade, from 1982 to 1992, the rate of illegitimate births soared from 15.8% to 24.2%, an increase of more than half — the largest increase ever.
For comparison, the illegitimacy rate was about 3% in 1950 and 4% in 1960.
The new levels are highest among African-Americans (rising from 49% to 67%) and Hispanics (16% to 27%). But it is a national problem. The illegitimacy rate grew most rapidly
among whites (10% to 17%).
A single question needs to be asked on this issue: Who authorized the U.S. Supreme Court to steal the Christian Heritage on which the nation was founded?
Answer, no one!
Thomas Jefferson expressed his concern about the federal judiciary with the following language:
“It has long, however, been my opinion, and I have never shrunk from its expression...that the germ of dissolution of our federal government is in the constitution of the federal judiciary, ...working like gravity by night and by day, gaining a little
today and a little tomorrow, and advancing its noiseless step like a thief, over the field of jurisdiction, until all shall be usurped.”
Those Justices of the U.S. Supreme Court who have participated in this theft of our heritage should be impeached by Congress.
The platform of the Republican Party should make this very clear.
On the Pro-life issue the Republican Party platform for 1996 should continue on the course described in 1992.
“We believe the unborn child has a fundamental individual right to life which cannot be infringed. We therefore reaffirm our support for a human life amendment to the Constitution, and we endorse to make clear that the Fourteenth Amendment’s protections
apply to unborn children. We oppose using public revenues for abortion and will not fund organizations which advocate it. We commend those who provide alternatives to abortion by meeting the needs of mothers and offering adoption services. We affirm our
support for appointment of judges who respect traditional family values and the sanctity of innocent human life."
In so doing, it will make clear to the American people that one of the two major political parties is committed to pursuing a policy which God’s Word, the Bible, specifically prescribes.
Polling data should not dictate a position on what is a moral issue. However, when polling data supports our position, we should not hide from it.
Several years ago, the Roper organization polled the American people on the issue of Pro-Life. 55% of the people placed themselves in the first four categories which can be described as Pro-Life.
In the categories 6-9, 26% of the respondents placed themselves as Pro-abortion.
Category 5 would properly be called a Pro-abortion category, identifying 11%, so the Pro-abortion position is shared by 37% of Americans.
8% were in the don’t know category.
History teaches us that in the last century the Whig Party disappeared because it would not or could not come to grips with the issue of slavery.
There are major comparisons between the issue of slavery and abortion. Both involve the Right to Life, the former outside the womb and the latter not yet removed from the womb.
The issue is so compelling for our time that persons who espouse it must have a political party willing to affirm it.
If the Republican Party goes the same direction as the Democrats on the issue, the issue still exists in American politics and will be addressed by people who support it.?
