Today is also a day in which Humanists and Secularists and Post modernists will be shouting from the rooftops. Their candidate has won and has survived to be sworn into the oval office. Today, they will believe that their past efforts to revise the history of the nation from its Christian based origin to purely secular will come to supremacy, with the help of The One.
The amazing thing is the fact that, and this is a little off topic, but in the light of recent news I believe it to be worth saying, he is trying to make himself another President Lincoln. It's totally absurd.
Whereas, the Senate of the United States, devoutly recognizing
the supreme authority and just government of Almighty God, in all the
affairs of men and of nations, has, by a resolution, requested the president to designate and set apart a day for national prayer and humiliation.And whereas it is the duty of nations as well as of men, to own their dependence upon the overruling power of God, to confess their sins and transgressions, in humble sorrow, yet with assured hope that genuine repentance will lead to mercy and pardon; and to recognize the sublime truth, announced in the Holy Scriptures and proven by all history, that those nations only are blessed whose God is the Lord.-U.S. Senate declaration, signed by President Lincoln,
March 30th, 1863
Would Obama sign such a statement, if offered, by today's Senate? Not likely. In his speech delivered in Philadelphia at the start of his whistle-stop ride to the national capital, Mr. Obama indicated that he denies some of the clearest directions of Almighty God that are embedded in that book to guide leaders of government in how to establish a nation so as to guarantee the freedom and the moral strength of its peoples.
Not only that, in his Philadelphia speech the man who will become the latest U.S. president made it clear that he impugns the very constitution upon which the greatest single nation in history was founded.
By these two acts, President-elect Obama demonstrated that, unlike President Lincoln, he simply does not understand the reasons for American greatness, nor does he begin to understand the reasons for the continuing, and rapidly progressing, fall of the nation over which he will preside.
So, in closing, I have to say that this is both the best and the worst that America can strive for. The racial ceilings of the past no longer hold men of any color back from success if they strive for it. However, I can think of no more clear and present danger to our Constitution than this man, who's friends are some of the most extreme leftists in the country.
