“I take this law [the Fugitive Slave Act] to be one of the grossest infringements of Christian Liberty, and, if the churches and ministers of our country were not stupidly blind, or most wickedly indifferent, they, too, would so regard it.”
Apparently a disengaged church is not a recent phenomena.
What of the murder of the weakest and most defenseless among us, the unborn?
What of an education system that is a black hole for money, and a black hole for too many of our kids, that teaches lies as truth, and evil as good?
What about blacks and other minorities who are chained by their zip code to attend schools that absolutely and utterly fail them in our inner cities, perpetuating ignorance and the tyranny of low expectations?
What of the immigrants, those who genuinely want a better life for them and their children, who are paid the wages of an indentured servant because their overlords can threaten them with deportation?
What of a government that claims to be able to do with bureaucracy what only genuine human love, charity, and affection can achieve?
What of a debt that RIGHT NOW is chaining those not even yet born, chaining their dreams, their ability to make their own way, their ability to fulfill their God-given potential, their ability to pursue happiness?
What of the human slavery and sex trafficking in our own midst?
What of a government that reinforces a culture of lust and sexual perversion through our education system, reinforcing in the minds of young men the idea that women are nothing but tools of pleasure, and in the minds of women that love can be found by being treated as such by a boy under the false name of a “man”?
What of a government that will not defend its own laws for the sake of marriage, that most fundamental and essential of human relationships, and marginalizes and excoriates those who defend its viability?
What of corporations and the powerful being able to carve up our laws and our tax code to their benefit and aggrandizement, at the expense of those less materially fortunate, who are then told by that very same government that it can save them from the very people it just prostituted itself to?
What of the exception to being salt and light in this world that says “Avoid politics! There let the world reign!”? No phrase as such has ever been written
Politics may not save us, but it sure is damning us.
