Rachel Pendergraft, The Knights Party
The founding fathers and mothers of this nation would never have thought it possible that a Satanic idol would be erected in America. The very idea would be preposterous. And yet that is what is proposed.
The Satanic Temple is demanding that a 7 feet tall statue representing the demon god Baphomet, who is portrayed as a “bearded, goat-headed, winged hominid with horns” be placed right next to a new monument of the Ten Commandments.
But should we blame the Satanists? They are only doing what they have been educated to believe they can do. Prayer has been removed from schools, any references to Christianity in the classroom is considered anti-American and illegal, and even most Christians believe the absurd notion that all religions have a fair chance in tolerant America – all by the founders’ design.
Just what were the feelings of our founders concerning the subject of Christianity?
Samual Adams instigated the Boston Tea Party, signed the Declaration if Independence, called for the First Continental Congress in 1774 and served as a member until 1781.
He said “A general dissolution of principles and manners will more surely overthrow the liberties of America than the whole force of the common enemy. While the people are virtuous they cannot be subdued; but when once they lose their virtue they will be ready to surrender their liberties to the first external or internal invader.” In a letter to John Adams on Oct. 4, 179 he said this about the solution to the future of America’s white children. “Let divines and philosophers, statesmen and patriots, unite their endeavors to renovate the age, by impressing the minds of men with the importance of educating their little boys and girls, of inoculating in the minds of youth the fear and love of the Deity…and, in subordination to these great principles, the love of their country. .In short,of leading them in the study and practice of the exalted virtues of the Christian system.”
- John Witherspoon was the President of Princeton, signed the Declaration of Independence, was a member of the Continental Congress for six years, and served on over 100 Congressional Committees.
He said “It is in the man of piety and inward principle, that we may expect to find the uncorrupted patriot, the useful citizen, and the invincible soldier. God grant that in America true religion and civil liberty may be inseparable and that the unjust attempts to destroy the one, may in the end lend to the support and establishment of both.”
The man known as the “Architect of the Constitution” James Madison declared
“We have staked the whole future of American civilization not upon the power of government, far from it. We have staked the future of all of our political institutions on the capacity of mankind for self-government,; upon the capacity of each and all of us to govern ourselves, to control ourselves, to sustain ourselves according to the Ten Commandments of God.”
Noah Webster is mostly associated with the dictionary. But also served nine terms in the Connecticut General Assembly, three terms in Massachusetts Legislature, and four years as a judge. He had very strong convictions toward Christianity He said:
“The moral principles and precepts contained in the Scriptures out to form the basis of all our civil constitutions and laws.. All the miseries and evils which men suffer from vice, crime, ambition, injustice, oppression, and war proceed from their despising or neglecting the precepts contained in the bible.” He went on to say that “in my view, the Christian religion is the most important and one of the first things in which all children, under a free government, ought to be instructed…No truth is more evident to my mind that that the Christian religion must be the basis of any government intended to secure the rights and privileges a free people.”
John Jay , was the first United States Supreme Court Justice, a member of the First and Second Continental Congress’, the governor of New York, served as Secretary of Foreign Affairs under the Articles of Confederation, was Minister to Spain and was the negotiator of the 1794 peace treaty now called the Jay Treaty, which kept the new nation from being pulled back into a war between England and France.
He had very strong views about the involvement Christians should seek in public affairs. He said, “Providence has given our people the choice of their rulers, and it is the duty as well as the privilege and interest of our Christian nation to select and prefer Christians for their rulers.”
The above are just a few examples of the opinions of some of the founding fathers. The men and women of the early republic believed without a doubt that Jesus Christ himself had had a plan for his white children (The very first naturalization law was restricted to white people only 1790) and this plan involved the conquering of a heathen land and the development of self-rule guided by the values and principles of the Bible. They believed it was no mistake they had come to this new land. It was the will of Jesus Christ which led them to this wilderness.
The men and women struggled to make this a nation which revered Jesus Christ, so much so, they would base their whole government and the future of their children on the teachings of the Bible. These were men and women with courage, with true conviction to the Bible and God’s word. These men and women are our heroes.
if our ancestors felt so strongly about the place Christianity was to have in our countries formation and the continuing influence it should have on every aspect of our lives, from the white House on down then how did we get from that sentiment to the present one?
The First Amendment, which the court now uses to prohibit Christian activities in public, simply states in reference to religion: Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion or prohibiting the fee exercise thereof..
Neither the phrase “separation of church and state” nor the word “church” are found any where in the Constitution or it’s amendments.
Where did this phrase originate if it is not in the Constitution? The answer can be found in a letter written by Thomas Jefferson to the Danbury Baptist Association thirteen years after the first amendment was written.
It must be remembered that the injustices of the mother country (England ) was still fresh in the minds of this foundling nation. Christians fled England to the shores of this new land to escape the established Church of England. This was the official church of England. Members were given especial privileges and those who chose to belong to different Christian denominations were penalized and persecuted . The colonists came here to practice their own chosen Christian denominational beliefs, but NOT to escape Christianity.
Although the framers of the Constitution and it’s amendments made it clear there would be no established Christian denomination over another, there was some concern by the Danbury Baptists over a rumor that another denomination was to become the official government sponsored denomination.
On January 1, 1802, President Jefferson responded to the Danbury Baptists in a letter. He tried to ease their fears by using the now infamous phrase to assure them the government would not establish one certain Christian denomination over another.
Jefferson wrote, “I contemplate with solemn reverence that act of the whole American people which declared that their legislature should ‘make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof,’ thus building a wall of separation between Church and State.”
Why would he choose such a peculiar choice of wording if it did not occur anywhere in the discussions of the Constitutional Convention nor in the records of the next Congress which produced the First Amendment and the Bill of Rights? In fact Jefferson was using a phrase by one of the Baptist’s own very prestigious ministers, Roger Williams.
Jefferson himself was not a member of the Baptist denomination and so in order to address them on common ground so they would better understand his letter and it’s purpose, he used a phrase they were comfortable with and could relate to.
Roger Williams’ words had been:
“When they have opened a gap in the hedge or wall of separation between the garden of the church and the wilderness of the world, God hath ever broke down the wall itself… And that therefore if He will ever please to restore His garden and paradise again, it must of necessity be walled in peculiarly unto Himself from the world.
The “wall of separation” was to protect the “garden of the church” from the “wilderness of the world.”
The “wall of separation” was understood to mean that Christianity must be protected from overbearing governments. And according to statements by Jefferson, this was his understanding as well.
In just one example, in a letter to Samual Miller in 1808 he said:
“I consider the government of the United states as interdicted (prohibited) by the Constitution from inter meddling with religious institution, their doctrines, disciplines, or exercise. This results not only from the provision that no law shall be made respecting the establishment or free exercise of religion, but from that also which reserves to the states the powers not delegated to the United States. Certainly no power to prescribe any religious exercise, or to assume authority in religious discipline has been delegated to the General Government. it must then rest with the states, as far as it can be in any human authority.”
Religion is defined as Christianity
As Jefferson stated, the power regarding religious practices rested with the states. States had been passing laws since the 1600’s allowing free exercise of religious practices in schools and public affairs. This was enacted with the consent of the government in each state. The decision was not for the federal government to make.
During the time the writing of the First Amendment took place, religion was defined according to Webster’s Dictionary ( remember that Noah Webster was one of the major players in the ratification (amendments) to the constitution) religion is defined as thus:
Religion. Includes a belief in the being and perfections of God, I revelation of his will to man, and in man’s obligation to obey his commands, in a state of reward and punishment, and in mans accountableness to God; and also true godliness or piety of life, with the practice of all moral duties…the practice of moral duties without a belief in a divine lawgiver. and without reference to his will or commands is not religion.
The First Amendment simply meant that tyrants in Washington could not favor one Christian group over another! Several different sets of wording had been proposed for the First Amendment. One version sent to the Senate on September 3rd 1789 stated. “Congress shall make no law establishing any particular denomination in preference to another, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof.” Any one should be able to plainly see the intent of this amendment when compared to those words earlier proposed . In addition, if anything was to ever charge it was to be done by the states only.
In George Washington’s inaugural address, he had urged Congress to quickly form a declaration of the rights of states. Of the final twelve proposed amendments the states approved only ten. On Dec. 15, 1791, Virginia became the last state to ratify them. These ten articles were added as the Bill of Rights – a declaration of what the federal government could not do!The state constitutions had already stipulated a person had to be a Christian to serve public office and if anything in the Constitution or it’s amendments jeopardized these laws the states would not have signed them.
Then in 1947 in Everson v The Board of Educationthe anti- Christian judges on the Supreme Court took the eight words of Jefferson’s letter out of context and attempted in one blow to overturn the Christian legacy of this great nation! The court immediately began striking down state laws as being unconstitutional directly going against the intentions of the Bill of Rights.
The Constitution is the longest lasting piece of Government law to ever exist. It’s credit for success rests wholly upon it’s relationship to Christianity and it’s dependence upon the Bible for it’s constant guidance.
What does our present government now more closely resemble? How about the former Soviet Union? The Constitution of the Communist nation said:
Article 52 – The church in the USSR is separated from the state , and the school from the church.
So although the placement of the satanic statue hasn’t been granted yet, it probably will. And millions of gullible Christians will shake their heads about it and complain to one another and then utter something about how America does after all have separation of church and state. What would former generations of Christians think? Did they realize their folly at not swiftly removing anti-Christian rogues who found their way into the judges chambers or legislative halls? They probably didn’t see this coming.
And so as Biblical Christianity continues to be mocked by increasing numbers of people and the question is asked why on Sunday morning, in a few generations as the last vestiges of white civilization fights for its breath, will they be asking why also? Yes, they will. And what is the answer? Too many thought white genocide was a ridiculous notion. It just can’t happen! But it is happening.
Western Christian civilization (white Christian authority) is on the way out and it is being replaced by satan and all his religions. So what say you? Will it be Christianity or satanism. Those are the only two choices.
