Consequences, and Opinion TQO#116
America's greatest asset is NOT
might want to tell Glenn Beck some Christians consider words such as
"piss", "crap", and "holy cow" as
profanities, it has gotten worse since September, and my kids will
have to stop watching his show if he continues. You are saving the
country for them, correct?
Many things I
write about frankly here, only my oldest teen would be allowed to
read. There is a correct time and place for adult content and
language. 5 pm. news isn't it.
On the Glenn
Beck show he asked what was America's greatest asset, I said out
loud "GOD" so my kids would understand what he was about
to say next would be wrong, which it was, when he said the
America's greatest asset and this is why I have tried with past
presidents to get them to simply read President Lincoln's
declaration on national TV for Thanksgiving. I would ask Obama, but,
I already know what he would end up doing, seeing what that soul did
writer is going to beat Lincoln's declaration making Thanksgiving a
Federal holiday in 1863.
of Thanksgiving - Washington, D.C. - October 3, 1863
I have read
this to some black people that didn't know (I was 35
years old before I found out myself, thanks MarkD9 !) who
made it a Federal holiday and why, explained to them, and coupled
with Lincoln's second inaugural address, it can be a real eye opener
for some black "liberal" democrats.
to all this is the line in Lincoln's second inaugural address "until
all the wealth piled by the bond-man's two hundred and fifty years
of unrequited toil shall be sunk"
white men died during the Civil War and yet, President Lincoln
sought to honor and please God in the middle of this tribulation.
Democrat will do it, a Republican that wants to honor at least the
name of the party should remember the first Republican President,
Lincoln, by giving the speech on national TV for Thanksgiving. Even
a newly elected Tea Party member would do at this point.
I don't know
who to call, ask, or beg anymore because I don't think any elected
official really cares enough to do it or -IF- it would make a
difference. But, it would not hurt to acknowledge God properly and
try to please him.
We could do
with some heart felt tears from a Republican leader, while on TV
confessing we have sinned greatly against God, and then simply
reading Lincoln's 1963 declaration.
