Yesterday I asked my niece what they taught her about Columbus. She’s 15, in the 10th grade.
I knew it was coming. “He was a Spanish guy that came here, massacred Indians and took a bunch of slaves.” I said, “That sounds more like Cortez.” “Who?” she said. I said, “Columbus was Italian, but sailed on behalf of Spain.” She said, “Did they give diseases to the Indians?”
I shook my head in disgust and went back to eating my dinner.
The United States of America is a Christian nation. That doen’t mean the USA is a nation of, or for, only Christians. It means that it is a nation that was founded by Christians on Biblical principles. The God-given rights that are meant to be protected (not attacked) using our Constitution’s 1st Amemdment, apply to all U.S. citizens, regardless of their religious beliefs (or lack thereof). Our government has always endorsed Christianity, but it will never establish a state-run religion.
For about 100 years the Democratic Socialist Communists have been fighting a culture war against Christians. Christians are finally putting on the whole armor of God and taking back the God-given and Constitutionally-protected rights that Democratic Socialist Communists have been trying to take away from us.
