Very interesting commercial from the Knights of Columbus. It appeared when the Obama administration started their push against religious groups, having them provide benefits and/or care inclusive of birth control. This may have been the original intent but I derived something more important. It was George Washington’s quote:
“Of all the dispositions and habits, which leads to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports.”
Morality in relation to political prosperity. It is something that I have always known to go hand in hand. How can you hold office and do the bidding of the people without having morality? This has been an issue with politics since the birth of governments. Our founding fathers knew this when they created the laws governing our nation. Elected officials have bypassed their ethical moral code for selfishness, power and recognition.
I bring this up now because social conservatives have been taking a beating on their stances. They are being portrayed as a fanatical group which the people don’t want involved in their lives. What usually happens when you are scared of something? You deny it and then you destroy it. Welcome to our path of destruction as a nation. We have all but replaced God in every form and place other than in church “where He belongs”. And the more you imprison God, the more our woes will multiply.
Social conservatives are not our enemy. Social conservatives are not always right. Who is? But social conservatives keep God as part of our freedom which the framers intended. To continue to dismiss them is nothing more than shredding the Constitution and what it stands for. With God we prosper; without Him we whither on the vine.
