I got this from the 700 Club, and make no advertisement for them,
but thought this was interesting in terms of how Russia and the USA are
appearing to change places...
I have just received fabulous news from Eastern Europe and alarming
news from America.
As you know, the Communist governments of the Soviet Union and their
satellites brutally enforced atheism. They taught atheism, practiced
atheism, and preached atheism. Christianity was systematically repressed.
There was an absolute wall of separation between church and state, the
church and school.
Now they realize that without God the lives of the people had no
meaning. Life was dull, purposeless, aimless. People had no hope and no
incentive. Only endless monotony and drudgery. Alcoholism skyrocketed;
the number of babies born plunged.
Now that communism has been overthrown, (CAPS ARE UNDERLINED THAT I
CAN'T SHOW AS UNDERLINED.) THE GOVERNING AUTHORITIES IN ROMANIA AND THE
SOVIET UNION ARE DOING EVERYTHING IN THEIR POWER NOT JUST TO PROVIDE
RELIGIOUS FREEDOM, BUT ACTIVELY TO PROMOTE RELIGIOUS VALUES TO THEIR
PEOPLE -- ESPECIALLY THE CHILDREN.
In Russia they are sponsoring lectures on creationism as an
alternative to evolution.
In Romania the government is asking the churches to send teachers of
religion into their schools!
These nations followed atheistic insanity over the precipice of
economic, political, and social disaster. Now they are trying to claw
their way back out of the abyss.
Yet instead of being warned by these Communist disasters, the ACLU,
the radical feminist, the militant homosexuals, Planned Parenthood,
radical atheists and anti-Christian bigots are still using the courts in
America to destroy the religious life of America's little children.
Consider these words uttered in a U.S. Federal Court by a District
Court Judge. "The Supreme Court has essentially ruled God out of the
schools of America as an object of devotion."
Don't these words spoken in a Federal Court in 1991 chill your
heart. (Following was capitalized AND underlined. Now what do I do.) "THE
SUPREME COURT HAS RULED GOD OUT OF THE PUBLIC SCHOOLS OF AMERICA."
How dare they? How dare a Jewish atheist father bring a lawsuit in
Rhode Island to prevent a Jewish rabbi from offering a prayer to God at a
high school graduation ceremony? How dare two layers of federal judges
agree that God -- the Author of life, the Sustainer of the universe, the
Judge of all the earth -- could be ruled by them out of the classrooms
of Rhode Island just to satisfy the anti-religious venom of one atheist?
I believe that we cannot allow to happen in America what happened
behind the Iron Curtain. We must fight these attacks on our freedoms in
the courts, on the airways, and at the ballot box.
(I am not encouraging you to send money, but to discuss what you
think about a group like this.) The good news is that we here at CBN have
launched the American Center For Law and Justice. This center, in
association with Regent University Law School, will got o court to fight
for the rights of Christian people and to prohibit the ACLU anymore from
taking away our religious values.
To enter lawsuits, prepare briefs, travel to places of injustice
costs money. But with the present conservative majority on the Supreme
Court we can begin to win. We can drive the ACLU back into the fringes of
society from where they came and guarantee to our children a society that
once more it is "One nation under God."
To do it, we need your help. Help to broadcast the truth, to
minister to God's people, and to fight for your rights.
This month we celebrate the Declaration which declared our
inalienable rights under our Creator.... (asking for funds continues...
Like I said, I'm not trying to get anyone to send funds, but to see what
you might think about it. This is an attempt to fight back. I would think
this is noble. I'm reminded of Ester who basically changed the politics
and saved the Jews. Now we have courts, and this organization is arming
itself to fight "them" where "they" operate.)
