HAS CULTURAL DECAY BROUGHT US TO THE BRINK?
by Dr. Laurie Roth, Presidential Candidate
(Jan. 4, 2012) — First of all, we must answer the question and conclude the battle as to where our country’s power, spirit, Constitution, freedom, excellence and history actually come from. Many throughout every generation from the 1700s on through to today have attacked and tried to destroy the true power and truth behind America and her growth, our Judeo-Christian roots. Enemies of God and the Bible wish it were not so, but it is so.
The truth in our real history is quite clear. We were founded by over 90% Christians, and our first leaders, Congress and Presidents boldly sought the Lord for guidance, direction and courage. Congress prayed before session. It would have been shameful and odd not to. Right and wrong was established out of the Holy Bible, not the Koran and other religious books.
As our country has evolved, the challenges have morphed themselves into endless, sneak attacks. We have become a sea of political correctness, rights for ‘special classes’ of people, using basic foundational racism arguments meant to battle real racism against black folks and other races to now include gays and other classes of people.
Nowadays if you draw on the strength of the Holy Bible and own a gun, Barack Obama calls you a ‘bitter clinger.’ If you define marriage between a man and a woman as the God of the Holy Bible defines it, you are a homophobe and don’t want to honor gay people’s ‘rights’.
Mental illness and name-calling are the game plan of today. If you happen to stand against Islamic radicalism and don’t want violent jihad taught or promoted in America, you are an Islamaphobe. Let’s see, over the years I have been called homophobe, Islamaphobe, racist, and anti-choice because I don’t believe in abortion and certainly not for women’s rights. Yes, I must hate women’s rights. I have earned a Ph.D, a black belt in Tae Kwon Do, I host a national radio talk show, have been happily married for 12 years, am a Mom and now am running for President of the U.S.
America has in large part lost her way as a much-needed ‘light on a hill’ and harbinger of freedom and hope. Where did much of that unique hope for the world come from? It was the belief that all men were created in the image of God, unique and had a right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
Life and its importance wasn’t assigned, loaned or manipulated by Government or leadership. Life’s power and right were given by God.
There is nothing to negotiate or change about our nation’s moral, skeletal core. It is this moral core that has made us the number one nation in influence on earth. What are some of these issues on which the next President must be clear?
God authors life; therefore, abortion is wrong, a crime and must be stopped.
Marriage is defined by God between a man and a woman, not groups of people, a man and his dog or a man and his car. Marriage is a Holy Sacrament between a man and a woman. That truth doesn’t mean I hate or wish ill to gay people. In our society gays can already live with and commit to their partner, see an attorney and obtain rights as a beneficiary.
A homosexual can pursue whatever career they want and live life to the fullest. I have had many gay friends throughout my life and for a while thought it would be OK to look the other way on civil unions, but that is wrong thinking. It would be marriage by another name and would establish the precedent that would build the censorship machine already being pushed in state after state and school after school. Six states have already ruled for gay marriage: Maine, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Iowa, Vermont and New Hampshire. The California Supreme Court finally upheld the State’s voter-approved ban on gay marriage but said the 18,000 who were married could stay married under state law. Go figure.
There are special ‘pink’ days for gay kids in schools. There is manipulation and the push to contort hate crimes laws to include speech, even pastors’ speech if they were preaching on the sin of gay behavior. The sexual chain goes quickly to the absurd, with groups who want rights for cross-dressers and special restroom privileges while the rest of us shut up and take it; the bestiality movement….got to have sex with that special animal friend; the group sex and polygamy crowd and of course those who want sex with the young kids, violent sex and sex with dead people. They all want their rights. When you take God out of the equation….there is no equation and there is no boundary or society left.
Thank God we don’t have Sharia law in the US and don’t persecute gays or execute them. We also must not change the definition of marriage to silence them.
Our next President must be strong in leading from a Christian and Constitutional value base. Marriage is between a man and a woman and abortion should be completely stopped.
