To the editor:
America was founded as a democracy under God! In 1782, the United States voted to approve the Holy Bible for use in all schools. Harvard University was the first university established and was strictly Christian. The student handbook’s rule No. 1 was they had to know Latin and Greek to study the scriptures.
To say our nation has not moved from its original foundation is to ignore reality. American people are demanding that we remove God from our government and businesses.
Melinda Henderson, in her July 15 letter, called God in government a “theocratic oligarchy” and business “Biblical capitalism.” This type of thinking caused us to lose our spiritual equilibrium and reversed our values.
We have ridiculed God’s word and called it pluralism. We worship other gods and call it multiculturalism. We endorse perversion and call it alternative lifestyles. We reward laziness and call it welfare. We kill unborn children and call it choice. We kill abortionists and call it justifiable. We don’t discipline our children and call it building self-esteem. We abuse power and call it political savvy. We create profanity and pornography and call it freedom of expression.
As a whole, our nation is turning its back on God, but God has said in II Chronicles 7:14: “If my people, which are called by my name shall humble themselves and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways, they I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sins, and heal their land.”
