Rabbi Nachum Shifren is a Rabbi, author, lecturer and surfer from southern California, the state that is trying to destroy our freedoms. I long ago moved from my home state of birth, partly because of these very liberal leanings fueled by a lack of responsibility in a free people. The Rabbi makes a few very important points that will inspire more of my comments later.
It’s bad enough for those working in the entertainment industry here in Los Angeles, where a fog of political correctness and a bending over backwards to accommodate, even promote Gay lifestyle is in full gear. Let none dare say that this type of activity is anathema to our country, our morality, and the debauchery of our young people.
Let it be stated unequivocally: The radical Gay attack on the Mormons is the shot over the bow against the United States of America. There was a time when what a man did in his bedroom was sanctified between himself and G-d. Now we are being served an “in-your-face” smorgasbord of smut and licentiousness as being between people who only “want their civil rights.”
Patrick Henry said, “It cannot be emphasized too strongly or too often that this great nation was founded, not by religionists, but by Christians, not on religion, but on the gospel of Jesus Christ.”
George Washington said, “Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. It is impossible to rightly govern the world without God and the Bible.”
These great patriots knew where they got their inspirations from and where their responsibilities lay. The Creator taught and instructed these men thru their scriptures and other good books. The common bond all shared was the Bible and a willingness to be Christ like as much as they understood and as their personal developments allowed. Some were very good and disciplined in their living the existing records of the gospel. They were responsible to the giver of their freedoms, even God.
Hogwash! We are dealing with the equivalent of a moral takeover of the country that has as its bedrock a belief in G-d and His promise for humanity. They don’t want civil rights! What they desire is quasi Gay/Lesbian hegemony, where a huge “bookburning,” reminiscent of the Nazis, will purge any remnants of the “Christian, White, mainstream America” that has given ALL AMERICANS the most profound scope of freedom, liberty, and justice that Mankind has yet to experience.
People have perhaps wondered: why the Mormons? Answer: they are a small, yet vocal Christian minority. They have been selected by the mobs as vulnerable, a group that might not have such massive support among America’s Christians.
We who are friends of the Mormons, their patriotism, their family values, will not falter in our continued support of these dear Americans. Let us recall the Christian minister Niemoller, whose admonition during those dark years of Nazi Germany moved us to our core:
“When they came for the gypsies, I said nothing, because I wasn’t a gypsy. When they came for the homosexuals, I said nothing, because I wasn’t a homosexual. When they came for the Jews, I said nothing, because I wasn’t a Jew. Then they came for the Catholics, and I said nothing, because I wasn’t a Catholic……then they came for me, and there was no one left to defend me.”
President Andrew Jackson said in his farewell address in 1837, “May He who holds in His hands the destinies of nations make you worthy of the favors He has bestowed and enable you with pure hearts and pure hands and sleepless vigilance, to guard and defend to the end of time the great charge He has committed to your keeping.”
President Jackson was the life long and carreer enabling friend of Sam Houston, a man I admire and have studied somewhat. In a letter to Andrew Jackson dated 31 January 1843 Sam Houston stated with his usual elegance: “I regret to entertain the impression that every day lessens the veneration which men and politicians have heretofore entertained, or at least, professed for constitutions. Once they were held in veneration second only to Holy Writ; but now they are derided by many openly, and new theories set up in their place.”
These great men saw the dangers of neglecting the God of our freedoms. Our country is blessed by God and we owe Him our aligience. He will ultimately not tolerate evil here any more than He did at the Sodom and Gomora of the Old Testament. He has allowed us all freedom to choose our leaders and laws and we will live with those choices. Joshua was vocal and vigilant in his following the constitution of his day, “the book of the law of Moses, that ye turn not aside therefrom to the right hand or to the left…..For the Lord hath driven out from before you great nations and strong: but as for you no man hath been able to stand before you unto this day.” Joshua 23:6 & 8
God made it possible that a small man, army or nation could defend himself against larger and apearantly stronger foes. Scriptures are full of these examples and this is where Satan and those he would misguide do not recognize; God uses a small army to do his work almost always. I pray to not follow the masses but to protect the individual and small group of followers of God’s Natural Laws.
