Re: Quote of the Day - Jim Slinsky
I like Quotes that include God, removing God from government, family, friends, or career will end poorly. A complete thought that has only come to me recently, the removal of references to God in government buildings has a greater purpose. We are endowed by our Creator with certain rights, remove the Creator eliminate the rights. I respectfully disagree with the Thomas Jefferson's quote, that the danger is from government ignoring the Constitution, it's from a people rejecting God's role. I think Jefferson spoke like I have many times, with the mind set that God was a given, and the assumption his listeners all shared that view. Viewed in the context of the assault on our rights, the right to bear arms for many of us, but the others have all been trampled as well. The dismissal of God preceded this movement. The Founders consciousness of their fallibility, set up a system of checks and balances that reflects their scriptural view of man, and God.
