What is it about socialists, that makes them despise religion? It seems that whenever a Socialists wins an election that gives them the ultimate power in a country, the first thing they try to do is remove religion as a force in that society. Oh it's not done in a way that the people realize it is happening. No, it's more covert and insidious in the way it is brought about. Usually it's done right under the noses of the very people who claim their ruler would never do such a thing. In America, religious persecution by the government has been brewing for a few generations.
The shot over the bow of religion was fired by Hugo Black, a former Ku Klux Klan member appointed to the Supreme Court by FDR. In 1947 when Hugo Black wrote the majority opinion for Everson vs. Board of Education., he reinterpreted the meaning of the First Amendment of the Constitution by taking completely out of context a phrase used by President Thomas Jefferson in a letter he wrote to the Danbury Baptist Association in 1802. By using the phrase “separation of church and state,” in his opinion, Justice Black limited the religious liberty of all Americans. Now after 62 years of constant government attack, Obama and Congress are about to take their godless agenda forward by disallowing college students the right to worship as they please.
Americans have been told that this is just a simple expansion of the national service programs. However, if the he truth is to be told, Obama plans to build a million youth movement, who's members will be denied their right to religious freedom. Sponsored by Rep. Carolyn McCarthy a Democrat from NY, the Bill, HR 1388, was passed by the House of Representatives where both Republicans and Democrats voted 321-105 in favor. The Bill moved to the Senate where it passed by a vote of 79 to 19 with one present vote, and on April 21st Obama signed it into law.
The “Generations Invigorating Volunteerism and Education Act” known or GIVE, is also known as the, “The Edward M. Kennedy Serve America Act, an Act to reauthorize and reform the national service laws." This Bill will for all intents and purpose combine JFK's Peace Corps and WJC's AmeriCorps with Obamas new “Youth Brigades”. The idea is to create a volunteer movement among the junior high, high school, and College aged youth of America. This movement will be a precursor of his larger plan for a civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded as the U.S. military. Obama’s plan begins with his requirement that anyone receiving school loans or who volunteer to serve at least three months as part of the brigade.
This all sounds fairley innocuous until you read the part of the bill that forbids any student in the program to participate in religious activities. The exact wording from section 132A of HR 1388 is as follows. ”Engaging in religious instruction, conducting worship services, providing instruction as part of a program that includes mandatory religious instruction or worship, constructing or operating facilities devoted to religious instruction or worship, maintaining facilities primarily or inherently devoted to religious instruction or worship, or engaging in any form of proselytization. “ In layman's terms that means, All members of the Corp are not allowed to no attend church services of any kind and never are they to witness about their faith to others.
My biggest frustration in seeing this the law come about, is how the Republicans did not even attempted to stop or change this religiously poisonous Bill. So with a stroke of his pen, Obama has told God to leave our children alone. Hitler did a similar thing when he told the church to worry about God and that he would take care of the people. Now we could argue about whether Obama is a communist or if he is a fascist, personally I do not see too much difference between the two philosophy's. Eventually both destroy the will of men, because politically, both ideologies strive for an omnipotent, totalitarian, bureaucratic state. They also attempt to replace God with the state by contending that that man exists for the State. Economically, communism abolishes private property, while fascism maintains it, but nationalizes the most important industries and the principal banks. (sound familiar?) When it come to religion, communism attempts to destroy all forms of religion. Fascism on the other hand could care less about most religions, but will ands must destroy Christianity, because it is the only religion who's devout followers have proved through the years they will not reject their God.
That has been the greatest obstacle for those who have constantly tried to move America from capitalism to socialism. The fathers of this great nation based the constitution upon the values derived from Christianity. They started a tradition where they began all official government business with prayers to a Christian God. The children were raised to know and believe in the Christian God. For many years, the Bible was the only reading material in most of the schools of early America. Eventually, thanks to Hugo Black, the Bible, Christian literature, prayer and even the name of Christ have been banned from the schools our children attend. Now, our children will be told they cannot even go to church as long as they are taking government money to go to school, or if they volunteer for Obama's “Youth Brigade”.
