ONE THING MITT GITS
“He who controls the present, controls the past. He who controls the past, controls the future.” --George Orwell
I am not a Mitt Romney supporter. Let me make that clear up front. And this is not a debate about whether or not Mormons are Christians. But it certainly was refreshing to hear a politician make a stand for Christianity. Most of them spend their time apologizing for “their faith,” assuring us that it would “never influence” their decisions. Why would we want a President whose core values didn’t affect his decisions?
We all have core values, things we believe are important, and they do influence our lives. For some reason we have been convinced that standing up for what you believe is “hateful,” “bigoted,” and “judgmental.” For too long we have watched our “politicians” say things they obviously didn’t believe. President Bush claims Christians and Muslims worship the same God. Could anything be more blasphemous than that? Many of his decisions have made me question his "core values."
That’s what political correctness has done to us. It has taught us to lie. It has taught us to believe others are lying. It has taught us to accept lying as a way of life. There are plenty of liars today but I am most concerned about those who lie about the truth. That is where “Mitt gits it.” They have been lying to us about American history and they are doing it today in our schools. At least he has the courage to point it out.
In his speech last week Romney reminded us what we all used to know. At least before Orwell’s kids began re-writing the history books. Christianity was at the center of the founding of this nation. It is unmistakable and undeniable. I explain it all in my tape series on “The Lie of Separation between the Church and the State.”
You do know that don’t you? The phrase “separation between the church and state” appears nowhere in any of our founding documents. It is neither in the Declaration of Independence nor the Constitution. It is however, in the Humanist Manifesto and the Russian Constitution. It was a major plank in the Communist Manifesto. But it is not now, nor has it ever been an American ideal. Why don't more of our leaders know that?
"Blessed is the Nation Whose God is the Lord" Psalm 33:12. America thrived when we placed the Lord in His rightful place. Can you deny that today we are a nation in decline? Only a return to Christianity can save this nation. Without it we will become a “proverb and a byward among all of the nations.” Christian men founded this nation, not Secularists. America must return to her Christian roots. Our Founding Fathers were not Muslim. They were not Buddhists, Hindus, or atheists. They were Christians. Here is what they said.
“Having undertaken, for the glory of God, and advancement of the Christian faith, and honor of our King and Country, a voyage to plant the first colony in the northern parts of Virginia, do by these presents solemnly and mutually, in the presence of God, and one of another, covenant and combine our selves together…” ---Mayflower Compact 1620
The general principles upon which the Fathers achieved independence were the general principals of Christianity… I will avow that I believed and now believe that those general principles of Christianity are as eternal and immutable as the existence and attributes of God.” ---John Adams
We have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion. Avarice, ambition, revenge, or gallantry, would break the strongest cords of our Constitution as a whale goes through a net. Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other." --- John Adams
“Why is it that, next to the birthday of the Savior of the world, your most joyous and most venerated festival returns on this day [the Fourth of July]?" “Is it not that, in the chain of human events, the birthday of the nation is indissolubly linked with the birthday of the Savior? That it forms a leading event in the progress of the Gospel dispensation? Is it not that the Declaration of Independence first organized the social compact on the foundation of the Redeemer's mission upon earth? That it laid the cornerstone of human government upon the first precepts of Christianity"? ---John Quincy 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...are undermining the solid foundation of morals, the best security for the duration of free governments." ---Charles Carroll---signer of the Declaration of Independence.
"For my own part, I sincerely esteem it [the Constitution] a system which without the finger of God, never could have been suggested and agreed upon by such a diversity of interests." ---Alexander Hamilton
“Providence has given to our people the choice of their rulers, and it is the duty, as well as the privilege and interest of our Christian nation to select and prefer Christians for their rulers.” And this “Whether our religion permits Christians to vote for infidel rulers is a question which merits more consideration than it seems yet to have generally received either from the clergy or the laity. It appears to me that what the prophet said to Jehoshaphat about his attachment to Ahab ["Shouldest thou help the ungodly and love them that hate the Lord? (2 Chronicles 19:2) affords a salutary lesson.”---John Jay---Former Supreme Court Justice
“God who gave us life gave us liberty. And can the liberties of a nation be thought secure when we have removed their only firm basis, a conviction in the minds of the people that these liberties are a gift from God? That they are not to be violated but with His wrath? Indeed I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just, and that His justice cannot sleep forever.” ---Thomas Jefferson.
“We have staked the whole future of American civilization, not upon the power of government, far from it. We’ve staked the future of all our political institutions upon our capacity…to sustain ourselves according to the Ten Commandments of God.” --- James Madison “The Father of the Constitution.”
"To the kindly influence of Christianity we owe that degree of civil freedom, and political and social happiness which mankind now enjoys. . . . Whenever the pillars of Christianity shall be overthrown, our present republican forms of government, and all blessings which flow from them, must fall with them." ---Jedediah Morse, Signer of the Declaration.
"Let the children who are sent to those schools be taught to read and write and above all, let both sexes be carefully instructed in the principles and obligations of the Christian religion. This is the most essential part of education” ---Benjamin Rush
Let it be impressed on your mind that God commands you to choose for rulers just men who will rule in the fear of God [Exodus 18:21]. . . . If the citizens neglect their duty and place unprincipled men in office, the government will soon be corrupted . . . If our government fails to secure public prosperity and happiness, it must be because the citizens neglect the Divine commands, and elect bad men to make and administer the laws.” --Noah Webster
the Constitutional Convention of 1787, James Madison proposed the
plan to divide the central government into three branches. He discovered
this model of government from the Perfect Governor, as he read Isaiah
You see the secularists don’t want religion removed from government. They just want Christianity removed. They want THEIR religion taught. Our founders would be astounded.
"[F]or avoiding the extremes of despotism or anarchy . . . the only ground of hope must be on the morals of the people. I believe that religion is the only solid base of morals and that morals are the only possible support of free governments. [T]herefore education should teach the precepts of religion and the duties of man towards God." ---Gouverneur Morris
America was founded on Biblical precepts.
least Mitt gits it. What’s wrong with the rest of us? How long will
we believe a lie?
