Servants Who Would Be Masters

Understanding that the wisdom and power of the governed was derived from Christian faith, they set about diminishing that faith in order to make the governed the slaves of the governors. A government's options are distinctly limited if its citizens are religious, so religion must go. A nation made up of citizens with deep religious faith will never allow its government to plunder tomorrow to pay for today. Citizens with true faith in God will never offer their votes in exchange for assets forcibly seized from other fellow citizens. So those who wish to seek and retain political power over their fellow citizens must first attenuate the religious faith of their populations. In America this means that those in government who view themselves as masters (rather than servants) of the rest of us must do all they can to weaken Christianity.

Those of us who venerate freedom, be we Jewish or Christian, be we religious or secularized, have no option but to pray for the health of Christianity in America. No other group possesses both the faith and the numbers sufficient to hold back the ever enrcoaching, sometimes sinister, power of the state.
