In God we trust. Seems simple enough. A quiet, abiding trust in the Almighty brings peace and comfort to over a billion people worldwide. Those words reside on American currency, pop up here and there, and until recently, nobody seemed to mind. Believers took solace in it, and non-believers didn’t mind, so long as the money worked. Well, the money stopped working a long time ago, and now they’re after God.
God got expelled from school, His commandments from the courthouse square, and from the halls of Congress, and we wonder what ever happened to the country. God is a nice guy. You don’t have to throw him out, just ask Him to leave, and he’ll oblige. And, when He does leave what do you have left? Bruce Gender, Hillary, Obama, and Imam whoever! Children don’t say prayers, or the Pledge of Allegiance in school anymore. They learn how to do drugs, and different sexual preferences, depending on the gender, or cross-gender of the teacher. Welcome to a Godless world!
We rock along with Common Core, happy with how modern we are, until the shots ring out from some student who thinks his actions are just some elevated video game. However, I’ve seen many pictures of elementary school children touching their foreheads to the classroom floor in submission to Allah. When you show God the door the Devil walks right in.
The Muslims make a big deal about the crusades. With a trail of blood extending from the seventh century all the way to yesterday, they point to a period of time that Christians stood up and said, “ENOUGH!” The Islamic State claims to be instituting Sharia Law, in accordance with the Qu’ran. You’d think that if everyone in a given area believes the same that there would be peace. Au Contraire! One of the most profound videos I’ve seen has a group of ISIS “soldiers” running up and down a road in Syria, or it may have been Iraq, shooting anyone who just happened to be on the road at that time. I remember one car full of civilians who were gunned down as they screamed in Arabic, “We are Islamic State!” I give you the “religion of peace!”
And what is our response. If we can just get the words, “In God We Trust,” off them dollars it’s gonna be all right! If you believe that have I got a bridge for you, and it’s on sale. Heck, I’ll run a two for one sale. It really doesn’t matter if you believe in God or not. You must admit that the choice between a God fearing and a Godless society is profoundly simple. The Westboro Baptist Church is as whacked out as they come, but to my knowledge they have not done any female genital mutilations yet. Nor have I seen one beheading. David Koresh had his moments, but after Mount Carmel fell, not one grave of an executed member was found. Janet Reno’s victims were all cremated on site.
God sits in heaven and quietly asks, “Have you had enough?” As long as America goes headstrong its own way, God will just let it. If we remove those four words from our money it will be the final insult to God. He doesn’t have to rain down fire and brimstone on us, we’ll handle that all by ourselves. If we turn, refuse to allow this abomination, and begin to pick up the pieces of our shattered soul, and we’re lucky, maybe God will come back, and forgive us the three thousand plus babies we kill every day!
