A LINE IN THE SAND
Pastor Roger Anghis
July 7, 2013
I believe that America has reached a point where we have to draw a line in the sand and tell Washington and BOTH Parties, NO MORE!
This nation was founded by men and women that operated in high character:
"The public cannot be too curious concerning the characters of public men." —Samuel Adams
“Without morals a republic cannot subsist any length of time; they, therefore, who are decrying the Christian religion, whose morality is so sublime and pure (and) which insures to the good eternal happiness, are undermining the solid foundation of morals, the best security for the duration of free governments.” —Charles Carroll
"He that shall collect all the moral rules of the philosophers and compare them with those contained in the New Testament will find them to come short of the morality delivered by our Saviour and taught by His disciples: a college made up of ignorant but inspired fisherman...” —John Locke
“Religion and good morals are the only solid foundation of public liberty and happiness.” —Samuel Adams
In the administrations over the last 50-60 years we have seen a drastic falling away for the high moral standards set by our Founders. I understand that there have been people of questionable character all through America’s history but there has been an exponential growth of those lacking in good character since the 1950’s. In my opinion Eisenhower was the last President we had that was willing to admit that there was an outside source that was working its way into America’s system to take it to a One World Order. Reagan was willing to stand up to any opposition to our way of life but we have not seen one since that will stop the destruction of America. The current so-called president is on a fast track to bring America down to the level of muslim countries which as of yet has yet to progress pass the 7th century in mentality or civility.
We are being invaded because our government will not secure our borders. We have eight members of Congress that have written an immigration reform bill that only benefits the illegal immigrants that have broken our laws, stolen Social Security numbers and stolen jobs from Americans. This bill allows them to stay and continue to hold jobs that belong to Americans. It’s like allowing a bank robber to keep the money he stole from the bank as long as he pays taxes on it. In my American Intelligence Briefing Report I covered a couple of articles that describe the results of our government’s refusal to enforce the immigration laws we have and spread the lie that we need reform. Hitler’s regime once stated the more you tell a lie the more the people would believe it. Most people think we have a ‘broken immigration system’ when what we really have is one Party in particular, Democrats, that refuses to enforce our laws and wants to create a massive voting base. Here is a sample of this so called immigration reform bill: Five Reasons to Oppose Latest Senate Immigration Bill
Every version of the bill has been secretly negotiated and hastily considered
2. Liberal activist groups will get access to a $100 million, taxpayer-funded slush fund
3. There never was a serious attempt to secure the border
4. Legalization First, Federal Entitlements Next
5. No version of the bill has ever lost a Democratic senator’s support
As it can be seen this bill does nothing to ‘reform’ immigration. It is loaded with unneeded pork that doesn’t secure the border which is what is needed! As a result of this governments refusal to secure our border there are two ranches in Texas that have been taken over by the Los Zetas drug cartel out of Mexico. Media has been silent about this. One of the few things that the Constitution requires our government to do is to protect its citizens and at least since Bush 41 we have refused to secure the border to facilitate that protection.
Our government is continuing to ignore our Constitution on several levels. The pass laws that force us to violate our religious beliefs and our freedom of speech rights guaranteed by our First Amendment. The NDAA has a provision that allows the government to indefinitely detain a person they feel is a threat to national security without being charged or being allowed access to an attorney. That violates our 4th, 5th, 7th and several other sections of our Bill of rights. The DOJ’s idea of who is a threat to our national security are those that believe that the government should operate according to the Constitution, pro-life supporters, pro-gun supporters, and those that believe that traditional marriage should be the law of the land.
When will we draw a line in the sand and say NO MORE! The government operates like they are our boss when in reality they work for us! A friend of mine, Phil Marna President of Wings of Eagles Studios wrote a song entitled Fraud or Freedom, Coward or Free? A couple of verses in the song really point out what is happening and it seems that not many are paying any attention at all:
line has been drawn, a line in the sand-
There’s no more excuses I must make my stand-
Freedom’s been slippin’ folks look the other way-
Now the die has been cast, an’ it’s come time t’pay!
Must turn back to God – back to His mighty hand...
you a patriot or a coward- we are gonna know
Won’t stop election fraud? - your yella’s startin’ t’show
You wanna party all night- just lookin’ ta have fun-
But the party’s commin’- their gonna take your gun
We are seeing our elected officials from both Parties completely ignore those who put them in office and pass laws that they want and that will benefit them and not Americans. We have more oil that most of the Middle East combined yet Washington won’t give us access to it. These are assets that belong to the American people, not the US government. We are giving money to nations that hate us and Americans are struggling. Obama just cut access to two thirds of America’s oil shale lands. Democrats have proposed bills to permanently ban drilling off the East coast, West coast and the Gulf! Bush 41 made Anwar off limits. This causes the loss of American jobs and fills the coffers of Arab countries that hate us. Just who is Washington representing? It sure isn’t the American people.
The NSA’s data collection on Americans is unprecedented and being done on levels never believed possible and certainly not constitutional. 4th Amendment Text
“The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.”
Notice that it states “shall not be violated” except for probable cause. Through the NSA the Obama Administration is collecting financial data from private citizens without warrants. This is a blatant violation concerning our “persons, houses, papers, and effects”. Media, for the most part is silent and in the halls of Congress all you hear are crickets.
Our Supreme Court recently issued rulings that are contrary to everything America stands for. In allowing homosexual marriage it degrades the institution of marriage and tears away the foundation of society. Our Founders never at anytime embraced homosexuality and always shunned those that decided to live that lifestyle because it is a decision and not genetic. Now we will have the ACLU file lawsuits to shove homosexual marriage down the throats of all Americans.
Our so-called education system has been trying to indoctrinate all our children into believing that homosexuality is a viable lifestyle and anyone who opposes it is a bigot. There are even laws being introduced by the idiot Senator from Minnesota, Al Franken, to to force mandatory pro-'gay' lectures upon all public school children, even Kindergarteners.
This month Franken snuck his pro-bullying legislation which threatens to defund any public school that fails to promote homosexuality (bullying Christian kids to reject their parents' religious beliefs), by inserting the language from his failed "Homosexual Classroorms Act" (aka Student Non-Discrimination) into Senator Tom Harkin (D-IA)'s Elementary and Secondary Education Act (formerly known as No Child Left Behind).
Another probable result from this unconstitutional decision from the Supreme Court will be the forcing of all churches AND THE PASTORS to perform homosexual marriages. Obama says no but you never pay attention to what he says, but to what he does. Example:
Taxpayer-funded abortion: Obama promised that there would be no taxpayer-funded
abortions. Guess what? He lied.
• Jerusalem As Israel's Capital: When running for President he said that he recognized Jerusalem as Israel's capital. Then guess what?, he didn't.
• ACORN: Obama said "The only involvement I had with Acorn was doing some stuff with the justice department." Guess what? That was a lie
• Bill Passing In Washington: Obama promised that "The Public Will Have 5 Days To Look At Every Bill That Lands On My ..." Guess what? This has never happened one time. Total lie.
• Obamacare: Obama promised that "if you like your current healthcare plan, you can keep it." Guess what? You can't.
• Supported Traditional Marriage in 2008: Opposed California’s Proposition 8.

The State of Colorado passed a civil unions bill this year even though we amended our Constitution in 2006 defining marriage as between one and and one woman, Democrats stated that they didn’t care about the will of the people they just wanted this bill passed. In that bill the Republicans tried to attach an amendment that would allow a house of God that believed, rightfully so, that same-sex unions is a violation of God’s laws, to not allow a civil union ceremony in their sanctuary but the Democrats defeated that amendment. Now the church has to allow the ceremony but the pastor will not be forced to do the ceremony. With the decision from the Supreme Court that will change because the ACLU will sue any pastor that refuses to do a civil union/homosexual marriage.
It is time to make that stand and draw that line in the sand and tell Washington NO MORE! It is our country, not the governments. We are the ones that have the authority to determine the direction of America not our government. Lets exercise our authority!
