If you’ve watched the Democrat National Conventions in recent years, you’ll no doubt have seen the numerous times that they’ve booed mention of God. They boo prayer, they boo Christianity, and they cannot stand the FACT that our nation became great almost solely due to our heritage of Christian faith, and our Judeo-Christian values.
Here’s more proof of our national heritage for the unbelieving left.
Be Thou present, O God of wisdom, and direct the councils of this honorable assembly; enable them to settle things on the best and surest foundation. That the scene of blood may be speedily closed; that order, harmony and peace may be effectually restored, and truth and justice, religion and piety, prevail and flourish amongst the people. Preserve the health of their bodies and vigor of their minds; shower down on them and the millions they here represent, such temporal blessings as Thou seest expedient for them in this world and crown them with everlasting glory in the world to come. All this we ask in the name and through the merits of Jesus Christ, Thy Son and our Savior.

As we remember our Independence this week, let us never forget where that Independence comes from.
As Thomas Jefferson so eloquently said:
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.
