Honor veterans & God
As we approach Veterans Day, we should remember that a veteran is someone who wrote a blank check made payable to the United States of America for any amount up to and including his or her life.
That is honor. But there are too many people in our country who no longer understand that.
Many years ago, I attended the Harwick public schools. On Nov. 11, at 11 a.m., students would rise for a minute of silence and then the teacher would read a short prayer to honor those who died in World War I.
This could never happen today because the U.S. Supreme Court — at the behest of the American Civil Liberties Union — has banned prayer in public schools.
Our country was founded on Judeo-Christian principles, yet we can’t pray in our public schools. That’s ludicrous.
Also, regarding the Oct. 14 article “Shift at Vatican ‘seismic’” : The news media jumped the gun and expected the synod of Catholic clergy to accept homosexual marriage. Once again, they were wrong. The truth is no religious organization, nor president, nor Supreme Court has the power to suppress God’s law, which will prevail long after these mortals are dead and turned to dust.
Isaiah 5:20 warns, “Woe be to those who call evil good and good evil.” In a morally bankrupt America, we are fast approaching the level of sin that saturated Sodom prior to its destruction by God.
There’s a list in I Corinthians of the many who will not inherit the kingdom of God unless they repent and are forgiven by Jesus. One doesn’t repent by marching in parades celebrating sin or bragging about abortion.
