my church is, I post anti-obama things on my Facebook site, & certain people from my church are upset with me for posting them. They say that I should not criticize our leaders. To this I say, WRONG!!! American Patriots did not die throughout the past 250 years so that I can sit back on my ass when Barak Obama breaks Constitutional Law & not say a Goddamn thing!!! My church uses Paul’s admonition not to criticize the leadership, but they fail to take into account that, back then, there were only three ways to get rid of a bad leader, 1.) insurrection, 2.) natural death, & 3.) succession by heir. There was NO such thing as voting! In other words, if you said anything back then, you were in danger of being tortured or killed.
If my church had their way, the whole world would be speaking German now…follow my logic here…if Our Founding Fathers decided NOT to rebel against King George III, & just sit there & take whatever he dealt out, there would have never been such a thing as America … Therefore, when Hitler arose in 1938, America would NOT have been around to rescue England when Hitler was bombing them into submission! I say the WHOLE world, because after Hitler took care of England, he would still have turned on Russia, & then eventually Japan, …thus making the whole world German! Now, there were NUMEROUS instances in The American Revolution that showed God approved of what Americans did there! So, all this bullshit about not criticizing leaders, is EXACTLY that…BULLSHIT!
As to the arguement that I value America ABOVE The Kingdom of Heaven,… that is bullshit, too! The Founding Fathers WERE Christian – NOT diests as the revisionists say! President/General Washington did lots of praying in war & in peace, & if he was a deist, I maintain he would not have prayed at all. After all, diests believe in God, but also believe that He’s not involved with the day-to-day lives of average human beings, so why pray?
We have a true account of a Quaker Tory (i.e. Loyalist to England) named Isaac Potts who actually SAW Washington kneel down in the woods at Valley Forge and PRAY. Now, if Washington were a diest, why would he pray? It doesn’t make sense. If Washington were alive today, he would say that God was helping him fight The War for American Independance, & he would have NO doubts about it! These preachers of mine should be ASHAMED of themselves…I wonder,… do they think that because Washington fought for freedom, instead of waiting on God, that Washington was wrong? Or that Washington, “valued the Democracy of America OVER The Kingdom of Heaven”? Damn, I hope NOT! These people need to study their history!
