In Barack Obama’s America, Christianity has been increasingly under attack on many levels and from many angles. The religious freedom of Christians, Christian-owned companies, and churches has been constantly attacked by atheists, LGBT activists, and even the federal government.
The progressive left has worked hard to push God out of society and even go so far as to deny that we are a nation founded on Judeo-Christian principles. Barack Obama himself has claimed that America is not a Christian nation.
One Christian who is tired of the attack on Christianity is Republican presidential candidate and famed pediatric neurosurgeon Dr. Ben Carson. While speaking at the Iowa State Fair, he addressed the attacks on Christianity head on and in an incredibly powerful way.
Carson took a strong stand for Christianity and for the necessity for Christians to not cave in to the demands of those who tell us that we cannot talk about our faith.
“We have to stop listening to these people who tell us that we cannot talk about God, we cannot talk about our faith. I wonder, do they realize that our founding document, our Declaration of Independence, talked about certain inalienable rights given to us by our Creator, aka God? Do they know that the Pledge of Allegiance to our flag says we are one nation under God, that in many courtrooms on the wall it says ‘In God We Trust,’ every coin in our pocket, every bill in our wallet, says ‘In God We Trust’?”
It was at this point that Carson lowered the boom on all those who want to deny our Christian heritage as a nation stating that in medicine, such people who deny such facts would be said to suffer from schizophrenia, i.e. craziness.
“So, if it’s in our founding documents, it’s in our pledge, it’s in our courts and it’s on our money, but we’re not supposed to talk about it, what in the world is that? In medicine we call it schizophrenia, a form of craziness.”
“And, you know, it’s time for us to realize that there is nothing wrong with living by Godly principles of loving your fellow man, caring about your neighbor, developing your God-given talents to the utmost so that you become valuable to the people around you – having values and principles that govern your life.”
This speech will no doubt get Carson attacked by those who have deemed themselves to be the political correctness police. Something tells me, he really won’t care.
