It has become a popular opinion that "America is no longer a Christian nation." Oddly enough, that is correct. We have the Democrats, who demand that they have free access to everything, courtesy of the producers. They think drugs should be legal, while many people are desperately trying to keep their own children away from drugs. They think I should finance their retirement, while I live on Social Security. They think that I should be required to support homosexual marriage and then be forced to cram it down my grandchildren's throats as an "alternative lifestyle" in our inept, incompetent public school system.
Last, but certainly not least, they tell me I should agree to tolerate the premise that it is a perfectly acceptable procedure to murder an unborn child, because the mother was too lazy or ignorant to obtain readily available contraceptives, and use my taxpayer dollar to fund it. I've had enough!
If you are a Democrat, and do not support these policies, you are still just as culpable, since the leadership you elect does support, vote for, then implement them. If you are a Democrat and support these policies, then America as well as Christianity have indeed changed. Look inside yourself. If you are a Democrat, or anyone that condones, advocates or promotes these and many other issues, and call yourself a "Christian," then I am ashamed to call myself one.
