(In response to the question "Have Christians lost the right to vote?")
Christians have lost their right to vote, but it was really before you left.
1930's thru 1980's - All children said the Pledge and were able to pray in and around a school.
Late 1980's - Before this time, Sundays used to be a time when everything but the church was closed so that families could spend quality time together and "rest" on that day.
Early 1990's - Sundays became a day for consumers to shop for just about anything thus reducing quality family time spent together.
Mid 1990's Alcohol began being sold after the noon hour in all prime chain grocery stores.
Mid to late 1990's - Beer began being sold as soon as the stores were open.
Late 1990's thru Early 2000's - Someone decided that praying in school was not politically correct. A southern man decided to raise a stink that praying in school was discriminatory against other people's religious beliefs.
Present Day - The US is working on taking the words "One nation under GOD" out of the pledge because it's also discriminatory. Prayer in school does not exsist unless the true believer says a silent prayer to themselves. But if they get caught, they could face detention or even expulsion. AND if you listen real closely, you will hear, here and there, talk about the New World Order where everyone will be made to worship one religion.
Democracy? We got stomped on. Freedom? No such thing. Punishment for our belief in Jesus Christ? Certain Death.
It's really too bad that we can't continue on with the notion of a Christian nation that our forefarthers founded our country on. I wonder what they would think if they could see us now? But don't worry, there are still believers and we will fight to the death to keep God alive. God Bless
