Religion: The beliefs,
attitudes, emotions, behavior, etc.,
Constituting manís relationship with the powers and
principles of the universe, esp. with a deity or deities.

The whole world seems to be in a state of
upheaval. No one country seems to be exempt. No one country seems to
have a handle on just what the cause or the cure might be. To make
matters worse, leaders of the largest governments will not or cannot
address the problem. It is not like this problem just popped up last
week. The problem itself has been around since the people drifted
away from the Tower of Babel.
This country was founded on religious freedom and for the last 400
years for all intents and purposes had held its head above the fray
of the so called third world countries where this religious upheaval
was always just below the boiling point. In the last 50 years though
this country or a certain class of its citizens have been trying and
succeeding in mudding up the waters of our religious rights until
those rights are so confused that normal citizens donít know just
what those rights are. This confusion is not by accident. It is
programmed and on purpose.
Why, you ask would anyone want to take just a basic principal of
governing and turn it on its ear? Because while the right and left
of the governed are bickering back and forth they are not seeing
that our leaders are stealing not only those freedoms away, but
other rights as well.
There was a time in our country that most of the news and the
character of our society was posted in and around the churches.
While there were some differences in the tenants of the churches,
most posed only slight differences depending on the name on the sign
out front. One common thread ran through all of them, the basic
rights of all citizens were individual and not to be muddled with by
politicians or government bodies. Just a note here. I donít mention
synagogues here but they are included in the term churches.
Pastors and Rabbis helped the people discern what was right and
wrong with the laws and bills that were being passed and those who
were voting for and against those bills before congress. Not only
were these religious leaders wanted but needed to help keep those
who had authority over us and our country stayed true to our
religious and moral beliefs.
In the past fifty years the government has quietly instructed the
religious leaders that any mention of politics or politicians from
the pulpit was a blow against the so called separation of church and
state and the results could be the church loosing its tax free
status. This bluff worked well enough that enough of the churches
backed off of keeping the morals of the congress and its members
that the government began feeling they were above the scrutiny of
the local churches and members. This caused many of the churches in
dropping their morals too. The results of it all was that many
people have given up on going and supporting their local churches
because they donít see the churches having any higher morals than
The results are plain to see. Religions that the country was founded
on are being treated as redheaded stepchildren, while other
religions are being treated with royalty.
It is not hard to see and government officials have voiced their
choice of who they will back.
If our Judo-Christian churches and Synagogues were doing their jobs
none of this would be happening. They might try but they would be
screamed down by the silence that would follow their every sentence.
For one no news source worth their salt would give them space or
voice to tell the world their dumb intentions. At one time the news
organization had enough character to see through this sort of junk
journalism and we wouldnít even hear about it.
If our Judo-Christian society is to keep itself from being wiped
from the face of the earth. It must once again raise its voice until
it is loud enough to drown out those who would love to erase us from
If this nation doesnít go back to our basic religious habits and
tolerances and once again have a government that holds every mans
religion to be his individual right, we will be flying down the road
of our destruction.
