Group aims to bring God into politics - ZIONICA.com
For those of you who actually click on the link to this article, please understand that the person who wrote this little news tidbit works for the Texas Tribune and or KYTX CBS 19 out of Tyler, Texas, I'm not sure which. Regardless of the original copy and the one printed here on the Zionica website, everyone missed the word "unalienable". To clarify, allow me to say that "we were not endowed by our creator with certain "unalienable" rights. The word is actually "inalienable". To expound a bit further: Inalienable: def: incapable of being given up, taken away, or transferred to another. In the article itself, the journalist(?) is referring to the U.S. Declaration of Independence. It occurs to me that either the Texas Tribune or CBS 19 should secure a valid copy of the Declaration or at the very least invest in a dictionary for use in the news-room.
According to the article, a group of Christians who refer to themselves as "God and Country" was formed in response to a protest of the Nativity Scene on the court house lawn in Athens, Texas. According to "God and Country" the United States of America is a Christian nation suffering from a "tyrannical government". It is "God and Country's" intention to draw a line in the sand and aggressively and publicly defend our inalienable rights that we have been endowed with from our Creator. "God and Country" claims that is our constitutional right to mix religion and government, as it was when this nation was founded. "God and Country" argues that Christian pulpits have been bullied in recent decades into political silence for fear of losing their nonprofit status.
It is my opinion that "God and Country" are 100% correct on all counts. Plain and simple, Christians have been silent for way too long. This small group would have no reason to exist had the entire Christian community stood up and refused to remove that Nativity Scene on the Athens, Texas courthouse lawn. I mean the entire Christian community. I mean Baptists, Nazarene, Catholics, Lutherans, and every other possible professing Christian denomination in and around Athens, Texas. There should have been an outcry heard around the world. Was there? No, there was not. So, once again a tiny portion of the Christian community must carry the entire weight on their shoulders, so that the rest of the not so aggressive Christians could sit back and talk about it in a Sunday school class. How did that saying go? "First they came for the Jews and I did nothing, because I wasn't Jewish, then they came for the Catholics and I did nothing because I wasn't a Catholic, now they are coming for me, and there is no one left to stand with me." For the Christians that are left standing alone, what a feeling of abandonment they must be experiencing.
A word of courage for those who are members of "God and Country". God has always been in politics, He's just been removed from the principle position He once held. Make no mistake, He, in all His Glory is still there, always was, always will be. The Lord does not force Himself on mankind, He just rewards those who recognize and follow His instructions. When Americans stopped following God's instructions, America lost sight of God. The Lord has blessed this nation and it's people for well over 200 years, recently the people have decided to worship each other and money, and soon God's presence was no longer felt. That is why Atheism and immorality is on the rise. That is why we are expected to tolerate what was once intolerable. We are expected to find more and more ways to defy God and abandon our spiritual life for a material life. It is important to remember that God doesn't move away from man, it is man that moves away from God.
Our type of government was founded with this one principle in mind. It was designed to work in unison with Christian morals and principles without which, it cannot be sustained. We now have a movement in this nation to take America away from Christian morality and replace it with a moral relativistic society. There is no room for God in a society that rewards and respects what God despises. Without God, there will be no blessings upon this nation.
Let's not strive to bring God into our politics, but to make God visible in our government. If my people will repent and turn from their wicked ways, I will hear from heaven and heal their land. God said that, and God has never said anything He didn't mean. The Lord keeps his promises. He also said the wages of sin is death. There will be no salvation for those who choose the sinful life and do not repent.

Having been fortunate enough to be raised in farm country, I consider myself somewhat of an expert, especially about chickens. Not only have I been where they are raised, bred and butchered, but I have cooked chicken several ways. I can honestly say "I have never seen a hen or a rooster sporting a "nugget." If anyone from the USDA or FDA or the North Carolina Education Board can show me even one single chicken that has a "nugget" that is naturally connected to it's body, then I will apologise, retract and eat that particular nugget.
If I spent a couple of hours, I'm sure I could come up with several articles condemning the use and consumption of processed meat and poultry. So, since when did the proverbial chicken nugget become health food? Who, in their infinite wisdom decided that the chicken nugget belonged on the USDA list of healthy food for youngsters?
This entire healthy food ordeal brings into question, why is it now so imperative to provide a government designed lunch for the kindergartner? Personally, I don't think a healthy lunch has anything to do with it. I think this USDA school lunch menu and inspection is just another way for the government to take over raising your children. Somewhere along the way, government decided that parenting ends with birth, then you give up your child to the government to raise as they see fit. I also can't help but think that those folks out there who have opted to home school, be prepared for the government inspector to be knocking on your door too. Actually, the way this government has been executing its assaults on "We The People", you may need to be expecting an entire "guns drawn, all out raid, with flash bangs, tear gas and a SWAT team storming your kitchen." Don't be surprised if they raid your refrigerator while they're there, and confiscate any frozen pizzas you may have hidden in the freezer section! They may suspect of wanting to feed them to the kids when nobody is looking. I know this scenario sounds a little off the wall, but I'm telling you, the government has invaded homes for a lot less. For example, according to a study by the Cato Institute that specializes in civil liberties, there have been possibly as many as 40,000 law enforcement para-military home invasions per year. Most of these in the middle of the night, no warning, no warrant. Many of these raids have resulted in many needless deaths of both innocent and guilty homeowners and some officers and even children. Now, understand that most of these raids were initiated on the pretext that the homeowner was an armed law-breaker, i.e., drug dealer etc., etc. However, most law-breakers were of the non-violent category and way too much innocent blood has been shed in these operations of government law enforcement agencies. Just down the street where I live, a couple of years ago, the police raided the wrong house in the middle of the night, the homeowner thought it was criminal invasion, he fired in self defense, the he was killed by the law enforcement officers. So, be aware, that if it becomes a law that feeding the government's children anything other than what the administration deems edible, your home could very well be invaded in the middle of the night, just like the scenario I described earlier. Additionally, if anyone in your home is a registered gun owner, take extra precaution, because the police will shoot, that's for sure. You may die, because you don't stock USDA approved chicken nuggets in your refer.
Needless to say, the long arm of our government has gotten way, way too long!!! Reaching into homes to control energy consumption, water consumption, now reaching into your home to determine if you'll be feeding the children that now belong to the state and federal governments, the properly prescribed diet. Make no mistake, if this, another power grab of the Obama White House is allowed to continue. Your children will NOT be your children anymore, they will be the children of the state, and you'll merely be guardians of federal property.
Sounds way to Orwellian for the United States of America, doesn't it? Let me assure you, it is not. By the year 2015 it is the plan to have thousands of unmanned spy drones in the skies spying on your every move. Does that sound Orwellian? It does to me too, but it is in the government's plan. Do not make the mistake of thinking it can't happen, because it is happening, right here and right now. Don't believe me, go ahead check the Dept. of Homeland Security website.
Student lunches, control of education, control of health care, control of religion, control energy consumption, banking control, industrial and manufacturing control, automobile control. I mean, look at "Progressive" ( Progressive, just another word for Communist) Insurance's new spy module you connect to your car, so they can determine how far, how fast and where you're driving. All under the guise that if you are a good (little robot) driver, as determined by the electronic spy module, you'll get a break on your insurance premium. I don't know about you, but I'm not willing to give up my personal privacy to save a $100.00 a year on an insurance premium!!! You've seen their commercial, they make it sound fun, you even get to install the spy module yourself. (useful idiots)
We have been warned about all these things through Bible Prophecy, through men like George Orwell and C.S. Lewis, men who had a vision of the future, to them it may have been science-fiction, to us, in this age, it is reality.

If there is one thing to be said of Nancy Pelosi, it's that she's got more guts than any two men in congress. When she made her now famous announcement "We have to pass it to see what's in it." referring to the Obama Care Bill, literally thousands of people laughed at her. They said it'll never pass on that precept. None of our Senators or Congressman would vote to pass a Bill without even reading it, or would they? Oh, you bet they would, and they did. A statement like Pelosi's was made because it was too ridiculous for anyone to pay much attention to. That was just one of the ways Obama pulls the wool over the eyes of the people. His ideas are so radical, so out of the ball park, then when he announces them, people applaud and smile, all the while thinking he can't do that, can he? The next thing you know, he's already done it, and the people are left dumb-founded and wondering, when did that happen? When Obama made the statement: "We are only 5 days away from fundamentally transforming America." Very few people actually caught the gist of what this President wanna-be actually said. Except for a few talk show hosts like Glenn Beck, and Rush Limbaugh, and maybe Sean Hannity, my wife and myself, only a portion of the electorate paid much attention. Those that did were shaken as I was. What did he mean "fundamentally transform America?" Obama was smart enough to only use that line within 5 days of the election. There wasn't enough time for those with the audience to dissect Obama's words, and get the true meaning disseminated to the viewing and listening public. Even if they had succeeded in parsing Obama's actual intention, the roar of "we're electing the first black president!!!" ,would have certainly drowned out any warning coming from conservative radio and TV, or a blogger such as yours truly. Obama's fundamentally transform America statement may have been the first and last time he told the truth to the American people, and unfortunately very few heard it over the cheering crowd of Obama's adoring supporters.
When Nancy Pelosi made her statement, she knew exactly what she was saying. The American people would laugh it off as another foolish remark made by a foolish California nut case in the House of Representatives. By now however, everyone should know that when Nancy Pelosi made her statement, she didn't know what was in the Obama Care Bill either. The fact of the matter, no one in congress knew what was in the bill. Why, how could they not know what what was in it, somebody had to know? You are right. Unfortunately, the reason Congress and the Senate didn't know what was in the bill, is because no one in our illustrious legislature wrote the bill. That's why when asked about details of the Obama Care Bill, our Congressmen and Senators proceeded to dance that "little sidestep" the one made famous in the movie "Best Little Whorehouse In Texas". The mayor of the town played by Charles Durning even danced the "sidestep" to the song written about that "little side step". It was an extremely funny, (perhaps a little racy) movie, but oh so profound and borderline prophetic, in a strange sort of way.
For the benefit of those who still think Obama is inept and or naive in his actions, "NOW HEAR THIS": Dateline: 12 Feb 2012. Jack LEW the newly appointed White House Chief of Staff revealed the following about the Obama Care Bill: "Obama Care allows the President to tell a private company they have to offer a product, and offer it for free." You did hear that, right, right??? According to the "Affordable Care Act" (Obama Care), "The President has the authority under the Affordable Care Act to force a private company to provide a product free of charge." Correct me if I'm wrong, but did any of us send elected legislators to D.C. with the instructions to "vote away our democratic republic"? I know that thought never crossed my mind when I went into the voting booth!!!
With the authority granted to the President under Obama Care, there are some very serious and far reaching ramifications and consequences still yet undiscovered. Rest assured, Obama will make them known when they'll suit his purpose and agenda. I can't help but wonder what else Obama had put into the Bill that had to be passed so we could see what was in it? Let's make this clear, aside from those who were responsible for drafting and actually writing the "Affordable Care Act (Obama Care)" only Obama had additional input. Still think poor old Obama is just in over his head? Barack Obama is in league with, and is one of the most diabolical and cunning thinkers of this 21st century. Do not sell him short! He is in full control of his faculties and his ability to lie with a straight face, only enhances his deceptions and makes him more believable. The Bible scripture warns us about men with his abilities. If you haven't already, now is the time to heed those scriptural warnings.
F.Y.I. the basic draft for Obama Care was written by a man named Robert Creamer, a Chicago Banker convicted of fraud and doing hard time. He is the husband of the farthest left congresswoman Jan Schakowsky. Creamer wrote a book titled "Stand Up Straight- How Progressives Can Win" while he was doing time. Basically is was a 628 page manual for "how to reshape one-sixth of the American economy, namely health care. This book was hailed by David Axelrod (one of the President's men), Andrew Stern, president of SEIU, and of course Barack Hussein Obama. In case you think I'm talking out my hat, allow me to reference www.americanthinker.com go to their archives link, then bring up October 31, 2010, you will find a very sobering and enlightening article written by Stella Paul.
There were no elected congressmen or senators privy to the text, context or content of the "Affordable Care Act" (Obama Care).
So in their arrogant wisdom, or should I say stupidity, none of the Senators or Congressmen who voted for, or against, for that matter read the behemoth tome we now call the Obama Care Bill.
Some final points to ponder:
If Obama Care is implemented, how many more surprises will Obama be able to pull from the proverbial hat?
Is there anything in the Obama Care Bill, (which by the way is now LAW), that will afford even more presidential power over the American economy and the American people?
I think there are stipulations hidden throughout the Obama Care bill, that may just give Obama the ability to declare himself President forever, under the auspicious of, for the betterment of the national health and security. If there isn't, I will be pleasantly surprised.
One must keep in mind, that no one knew that this bill gives the President the authority to dictate to private businesses that they be ordered to provide a product free of charge. Nancy Pelosi spoke about this Bill like it was this great and wonderful surprise package, full of goodies for the good and dumbed down little sheeple of America. Consequently, our elected representatives forced it down our throats. This Obama Care surprise package is just beginning to be opened for the public eye. In my mind there are still many violations of the Constitution to be revealed.
