‘Defining time’ in America

I hope everyone is praying for our statesmen and our judges in this defining time of America. We need not confuse morality with religion – many world religions and cultures retain morals, and many atheists and agnostics use common sense and logic in their ethics. Religious freedom is not freedom from morality and ethics in our laws. John Adams said in a speech to the military in 1798 that there is “no government armed with power of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion. ... Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.” When we do not speak out common sense on morals, we risk not only losing the nation we all love and cherish, but we are a terrible example to the world. For America to embrace sexual perversions is all the excuse a legalistic cult religion, that controls many peoples and nations, needs to reject instantly both American democracy and the prominent faith associated with it, Christianity, as being unfit to survive. America does not have to embrace degeneracy. That will kill us.
