I try to steer away from religious subjects, but today is the National Day of Prayer. I've considered myself to be a prayerful person, so I have taken this day for granted until today. On the television, Fox station, they stated that a member of our president's cabinet wanted us to consider this a "National Day of Reflection."

Okay, folks, what more can the government take away from us? They have taken God out of the school, want to take God off the back of our money, and now we cannot even have a day representing what this country was based upon. Where are you Christians?

Someone told me one day that they didn't have anything to do with politics. You'd better, or we'll be restricted to what we teach in our churches. We will not be able to teach the Word of God. I am so afraid of what this country is coming to.

How did this happen? This is my theory, not anyone's. Just mine. I believe we are afraid to stand up for the truth. We sugar-coat it to make it sound good. We forget to tell our children the little word, "no." We let them do more or less what they want to and never reprimand them. We as parents, have lowered the gap.  We do not inspect laws that are being voted upon until it's too late. We let other people in government do what they want, not what their constituents want. We are letting atheists and homosexuals convince us and our children that what they believe is right, and the Bible is not to be believed. We allow all kinds of programs to be on television that encourage foul language, homosexual acts, sex before marriage  and many other things. Are we asleep or just ignorant?

I have copied below something we all should be interested in. Religious freedom. This is from Family Research Council, I can only ask, what will be next? Go to the above website and sign a petition to keep this from happening. I just signed it. This is taking things too far.

The very troops who defend our religious freedom are at risk of having their own taken away.
Last week, anti-Christian and left-wing activists met at the Pentagon with military officials to discuss pressing issues in the military. What issues would be of such importance to gain such a high-level hearing?
According to these far-left consultants, religion is one of the chief problems plaguing our troops. As theWashington Post reported, some are saying that "religious proselytizing" is at the top of the list of problems in the armed forces -- even on par with sexual assault.
As a result of such complaints from the left, the Air Force has -- according to the Post --published, but not yet distributed a new document with the directive that leaders of all levels (including chaplains) may not "promote their personal religious beliefs to their subordinates or to extend preferential treatment for any religion." The penalty these secularists are seeking for those who don't comply with their view of religious speech is court-martial.
If this policy goes forward, Christians within the military who speak of their faith could now be prosecuted as enemies of the state. This has the potential to destroy military recruiting across the services as Americans realize that their faith will be suppressed by joining the military.
Our brave troops deserve better. If chaplains and other personnel are censored from offering the full solace of the Gospel, there is no religious freedom in the military.
Please join me in signing the petition to Secretary Hagel urging him to protect the religious freedom of our troops - and not to proceed with the purge of religion within the ranks called for by anti-Christian activists.
I believe if we all stick together, we can defeat these wrongs. Pray and work to do that.


  1. Kat, I totally agree with you on every point. Obama claimed to be a Christian. It must be in name only, for he approves of all of these things. You mentioned our churches. They have already threatened them with trouble considered hate speech if they don't agree to have homosexual teachers and weddings allowed in our churches. They are trying to totally take GOD out of our country. First a long time back, they quit letting the teachers in school to punish the kids for disobeying , then many parents have been arrested for spanling their own kids. Then wonder why we have so many kids in trouble, now all of this. It's a shame that we used to be the Country that others looked up to and not get in a war with. Now this administration has them thinking we are weak. Yes,, I think the Christians have just sat back and let this happen. The ones who loved GOD in the Bible stood for what they believed, even if they were punished or killed. I think too many just want to think GOD won't let this happen. I believe they are wrong. That is what happened in other countries that wound uo with Dictators. And, people from some of these countries have even tried to warn us of what is happening to us. Most Pastors don't mention it either. Our new preacher did, and probably made some people mad. I thought he did what was right in telling them to stand with what the Bible teaches.

  2. Amen, Maxie. I write a blog for teen girls, Last year I wrote an article about Muslims. One person wrote a comment to me saying I would be put in jail for what I said. So far, I am still at home. I relayed the story to a group of Christian friends and one woman said she could not do anything that might send her to jail. She'd better wake up because we may be going to jail for going to church. Kentucky tried to pass a law that we could not say/write anything about homosexuals. The people of the state overturned the governors signature. I'm very passionate about this.
