I guess it is the same thing that is wrong with Christmas, Hanukkah, Easter, Palm Sunday, Good Friday, Passover or all the other Judo-Christian religious celebration that you knew about and felt no qualms about celebrating. But that was before “the fundamental change” and “social correctness” became the measure of any previously enjoyed holidays. Now, people seem embarrassed to admit that they are Christians, or worse yet, fed up with political correctness.
“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.” Amendment I to the Constitution of the United States of America.
May 5 is the National Day of Prayer. Don’t expect to see national news reporting or the President or Congress missing a step in their agenda’s to pause; heaven forbid (pardon the pun), but there will be an observance in Jasper at the Courthouse at noon again this year, just like every year. The Ministerial Association of Pickens County will be leading this observance. Please plan to join in this special time of reflection and prayer with your friends and neighbors.
This is not sponsored by the Pickens County TEA Party but it is supported by the group because the fundamental foundations of this nation came from forefathers who felt we needed to keep in the forefront of our hearts the fact that all rights come from the Almighty, not the government. We will join with the Ministerial Association to celebrate all that is good and right. We will ask God for his favor and thank him for his bounty. As Thomas Jefferson observed, “The good sense of the people will always be found to be the best army. They may be led astray for a moment, but will soon correct themselves.” Come join all who know the need to “correct” ourselves.
