Stand for something or fall for anything
By A.J. Castellitto

"The less you spend time with truth the easier it is to believe lies." -Lecrae

Socialist leaders, gay radicals and Hollywood are forcing the religion of secular humanism 'if it feels good do it' and actually bullying and breaking laws to do so. I advocate changing minds with apologetics, changing hearts with the gospel and re-establishing traditional American laws/standards at the voting booth.

Fast track immigration has also hurt American values and ideals. We are seeing 1st amendment-rights of conscience infringements occur at an increasingly alarming rate.

In 1829, during his Harvard Speech, Supreme Court Justice Joseph Story proudly proclaimed Christianity's role in shaping our moral civil society,

"I verily believe Christianity necessary to the support of civil society. One of the beautiful boasts of our municipal jurisprudence is that Christianity is a part of the Common Law ... There never has been a period in which the Common Law did not recognize Christianity as lying its foundations."

We are living in confusing and arbitrary times. The folks in charge are acting so boldly that they are actually utilizing illegal means to legalize immorality.

Look where compromise has gotten us. We have been complicit in our own demise. It is vital that we stand behind the moral, fundamental, constitutional few who seek to ethically and logically collaborate with an exasperated American majority. The GOP will have to embrace constitutional conservatism or die. Wearing their faith and convictions on their sleeve, a scandal-weary America is become politically educated and are fed up.....

Speaking loudly and proudly they understand that the time is now. The days of playing not to lose are over. A righteous stand is long overdue.
