Stand up for beliefs

-A A +A

To the editor:
The Democratic Party leadership is not friendly to Christians. It is by now common knowledge throughout North Carolina that “welcome baskets” sent by some Christian churches in Charlotte to delegates were rejected by party leadership. Their reason was the values of the churches concerning abortion were diametrically opposed to the values of the Democratic Party.
It is also common knowledge there was strong support in the Democratic Party to take the name of “God” out of the platform. The president canceled the National Day of Prayer in Washington, D.C. Neither bibles nor any religious material are to be given to patients in Walter Reed Hospital. According to Lt. Colonel Stacey L. Maxey, Afghanistan, “I’m free to express myself if I am a homosexual, but not if I’m a Christian.”
The president announced in Egypt that the United States is no longer a Christian nation. More accurately, he should have said that the United States has a majority of people who declare themselves Christian, but few who act like Christians.
It’s time for all Christians to stand powerfully for our God and the Christian nation our God raised up.
