Rhetoric of promises

To the Editor:

Secularism is changing our country. It always has been present with us. Today, it’s bolder than ever. Perception and personal feelings are replacing truth and reality. Calling the killings of innocent unborn life “pro choice” doesn’t make it right. Who started referring to marriage as “traditional marriage?” It most likely wasn’t a plumber. Just because something becomes a law doesn’t make it right.

Referring to the events that led to four Americans losing their lives in Libya, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said, “What difference does it make” if wrong information was presented to us just prior to an important presidential election? What difference does it make what our president, Barrack Obama, knew and what he did or didn’t do about this tragedy or “Fast and Furious?”

This is why he is constantly campaigning with a host of supporters applauding everything he says. The play continues with great reviews from the media. Our president is delighted. His agenda moves on. The lies, the cover-ups, and his secular, anti-American beliefs either are ignored or cheered by his followers. They believe his rhetoric of promises to remove all their consequences at the expense of others.

Ephesians 4:18 reminds us of what man’s capacity is without a relationship with Him, “having their understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God, because of the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart.” Could it be that we are trying to fix the symptoms rather than the cause for the mess we’re in?
