Lady Liberty seems to be hunching over a little more each year with ever diminishing flickering flame. The brave lady feebly tries to remind us of the great work still cut out for us as aggressive Atheists work tirelessly to silence the Christian/ Evangelical voice.
Lately, during sleepless nights praying over our nation, I ponder how our nation fell to such depths. God reminds me of the banning of prayer in school which was the first death knell to America. Madeline Murray O’Hare was responsible for her aggressive stand to ban school prayer in 1662 and later another ban in 1963. Ironically, her son, William J. Murray, was a strong Christian and the president of the Religious Freedom Coalition in Washington D.C. He advocated Christian rights internationally.
The second death knell was the Roe VS Wade decision passed in January 22, 1973. Since that infamous day, voiceless, unborn children continue to be barbarically slaughtered since the passing of Roe Vs Wade in 1973.
Of course, no patriotic American will ever forget the day the Twin Towers fell in an infamous attack from foreign terrorists whose goal is to destroy our way of life. Evangelical TV preachers, prophets, economists and political strategists predict America’s total collapse very soon. Most go about their business oblivious to the ominous and ever-increasingly frightening signs of a nation who is almost at the precipice of bankruptcy!
Bills are being passed faster than we can keep up. Gay marriage is now legal in six states, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Vermont, Maine, Iowa and most recently, New Hampshire.
Our forefathers would surely have turned in their graves if they saw America’s staggering immorality and decadence. Never before has there been such a cascade of news headlines and documentaries depicting the alarming sins of a generation caught up in sexual addiction, pornography, violence, murder, economic fiascos, (Fanny Mae and Freddy Mac scandals) and economic distress.
Greed, instant gratification and addiction to technology are responsible for the national debt, bankruptcies, divorce and broken families and things will continue to worsen as people live in a their fantasy world. We will be paying the Piper very soon if we do not radically change the way we think about our spirituality, family, health, economy and environment.
Another alarming bain has been the sex-trafficking of young girls and women. “America’s Most Wanted” recently aired a moving two hour documentary about the plight of female victims caught in the dark net of prostitution. Pimp predators roam the city streets seeking runaways and down-trodden young women who they soon recruit and exploit sexually for huge profits. I’d heard about this rampant trade in India and other third-world nations, but had no idea this human-right violation was happening right here in America.
imagine the injustice of young female victims being arrested, but the pimps are rarely held accountable. Many young girls were courageous enough to share their stories. I was dumbfounded listening to their horror stories of the inhuman treatment of their pimps who booked them for many men in a single day! Often the men refused to use condoms and the girls became pregnant. Many of them were forced to get abortions.
Some of the young women rose from their misery and have started organizations to help victims. Gems is one started by a former trafficking victim who has given many young women a chance to start over.
Pornography is another insidious fungus weaving itself into the spirits of a mostly male-dominated minority. including pastors. Christian females are also joining the ranks.
We are indeed entering the land of no return. We must come to our senses and do some serious souls searching. We must sit still in quiet and meditate on the decisions we are making and choices we have made.
There is incomprehensible suffering everywhere, and no respite. Who can know the anguish of a parent whose child has been abducted by pedophiles or seducing perverts. What goes on in the mind, ( and behind closed doors of a pedophile about to make his move on a unknowing child).
The media and especially the Church must step up to the plate. It is time for the church to take a stand against the evil that is fast devouring our innocents.
There has been a lot of bashing and finger-pointing on the pages of Facebook people. Evangelicals are fussing and “unfriending” each other regarding insignificant issues of doctrine, yet totally ignoring the more serious matters of human rights, justice and advocacy of the orphans, widows and unborn.
This should not be so. We must come together in unified love. I wrote a provocative songs for my MOD PROPHET CD, called “Policing the Other” It rather than address their own large sins. We need to start to address the evil cancers which are weakening our society. Our true enemy is Satan. Don’t curse the darkness…light your candle into the blackness of rampant crime and immorality of our culture.
We continue to sing “God Bless America” with the verve of an unembarrassed Cosmopolitan woman wearing nothing but a string bikini. But, how much longer will God bless America?
We are under attack in the deepest sense. Our own president has called our beloved Constitution a “flawed” document. Our freedoms will come to an end if we do not fight back. We must not allow Lady Liberty’s flame to flicker out.
Will God bless America with her blood-stained and vile robes?
