The holidays: No Jesus or Thanksgiving

Well, here we go again: We have replaced Jesus with Santa Claus at Christmas and now we replace the day we agreed to celebrate as a day of Thanksgiving with Black Friday.

We have removed any association to our Christian faith from the public out of fear we might insult other gods. Others have no problem insulting the Christian faith and dare us to say anything against their beliefs.

We have Christian American bodies by the thousands in other lands who have died so they could be free and enjoy the same rights we use to have in this country. We are dying by the thousands in the Middle East to assist them in having a democratic government, even though many of them hate us.

We as Christians are being made to look stupid and weak by the media. We are at the point that several states have petitioned our leaders to secede from America because of the polices of our administration.

We are headed down a slippery slope due to our lack of morality and trust in the God that blessed this nation. I pray that America doesn't wait too long to seek God's forgiveness and put him back as the head of this nation.
