Our Founders established the great truth and core values in the Declaration of Independence. President Abraham Lincoln reminded the nation of that great truth contained in the Declaration of Independence when he said, “We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal; that they are endowed by their Creator. The Declaration of Independence appeals to God no less than three times (Source: Declaration of Independence, Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address).
The solutions are simple, by God’s Grace; we became the greatest nation on earth. Our employees the politicians that work for us must never lose sight of that Grace. Today we have examples that indeed politicians are losing sight of the importance of God’s grace. An event that took place on April 14, 2009 surrounded by American flags and presidential seals, there was something missing when President Obama’s economic speech at Georgetown University, and that was Jesus. The gold “IHS” monogram symbolizing Jesus’ name in Gaston Hall was covered over (Source: The Washington Times, NBC Washington).
Now it becomes difficult to understand why the National University of the Catholic Church, would ever cover up significant religious art or signage for any reason. Upon the Obama administration’s request, the gold “IHS” monogram was openly disrespected. What the administration did was violate the Georgetown’s freedom of religion because the administration knowingly held their political economic speech in a religious hall. The First Amendment guarantees the Freedom of Religion is an inalienable right. This is not an example of separation of church and state because the president could have held their speech somewhere else. Once the president selected a religious setting, the Obama administration obligated to church rules, not a church over-rule. The second example is President Obama decided against holding a White House National Day of Prayer ceremony. (Source: CNN)
As a concerned citizen my question is, what’s next, will the White House attempt to omit “under God” from the Pledge of Allegiance?
