Born in a stable of unwed parents, never held political office, never wrote a book, He became a carpenter and associated with the poor, sick and those whom most would shun today. He is the most famous baby to ever be born. Everything we do today, whether agnostic, atheist, Jew, or any religion, uses and does something associated with this baby boy.
The occasion of His birth, which was recently celebrated all over the world, should cause one to wonder: Is it true? Did this Man really exist as a human on Earth even though he was God? Remember, everything, the calender, and beginning of our time as measured worldwide is based on his birth -- BC-AD, Christmas, the most popular book ever written, church, The Declaration of Independence and too much to list here.
The complexity of the world, vegetation, animals, rocks, light, a galaxy beyond comprehension, surely these things did not have a beginning out of nothing unless a master creator became involved. Eighty-plus percent of Americans believe God did this wondrous work.
I truly believe the mass shootings of recent years is the result of our government allowing a minority of the population to force God and his teachings out of so much of our lives. In Connecticut recently, people were praying on school property. The problem was, the prayer followed a terrible tragedy instead of coming before it. We have too long allowed political correctness and a few miscreants to create a culture of Godless, thieving, murdering, moral-less, worthless scumbags who are wrecking our wonderful America. It is time for a new Congress and president who will work to return sanity and common sense to the nation I so dearly love.
