It’s strange how when a person is in a position of life or death, even without a lot of religious upbringing, their first instinct is to pray to God. It’s almost like the instinct is hard wired into all of us, whether it’s the life of a loved one hanging in the balance, whether someone is waiting for medical results that could prove them to be terminally ill, or if someone has been in a car accident and the car is teetering off of the side of a cliff and there is no help in sight, most everyone prays to God to help them. When the prayers are answered though and a person breathes a sigh of relief, it’s as if God suddenly escapes their mind, help has arrived and the crisis has passed but rarely is there a prayer of thanks given.
The floodgates have been opened to vast numbers of citizens from other countries, they pour into the United States daily without limits set to how many will be permitted to become citizens here, take housing needed by our own, take jobs which aren’t plentiful enough to go around as it is, use food as our own people go hungry. What’s worse you ask? Well they bring along their own so called religion, are allowed to vote and raise hell about God and the American’s religious beliefs! Suddenly no prayers at all are allowed in schools, no one is allowed to talk about God in school when even on our money we state, In God we trust what has happened in this society?
I don’t dislike people from other countries, I don’t wish them any harm but there needs to be limits on the number of immigrants allowed access into this country, period. Each person entering this country needs housing, food, and a job, the sad truth is that our own citizens need the same things and are going without, there’s just not enough to go around. Our government doesn’t take notice or care because they do not have the slightest clue as to what it’s like to go without anything, least of all food, shelter or money. The worst slap in the face to every single American is the death of our religious beliefs, our God, those from other countries are entitled to their own beliefs but it’s another story all together when they gripe about God/religion in our schools!
Pathetic as it is, most children don’t know what the ten commandments are, many don’t belong to a religion, don’t go to church. Funny though they salute the flag, pay respect to the symbol associated with this country but are not allowed to pay respect to God because the child sitting next to them has a God with a different name? At a time when things are more uncertain than ever, when people need their religion, need God, and because of the squawkers they cannot take comfort in who they always have. If this continues heaven knows that God is the only one who will be able to help any of us.
