I was born and raised in Pulaski County. Although many good things have come from Pulaski County, I have never been more proud of Pulaski County than when I read about the county standing up to the Kentucky ACLU because of the county wanting to hang the Ten Commandments in the courthouse and being sued over it from the ACLU.
This issue of civil and religious liberties being under attack in America is rapidly becoming an issue where no American can remain quiet on anymore. Seventy-six percent of the United States are Christians. However, one non-Christian can implement or be used by the ACLU to stifle the religious freedoms of the majority.
In the letter Martin Luther King Jr. wrote from the Birmingham, Ala., jail he was in at the time, he questioned what a “just law” was? He cited Thomas Aqunias and said that a ... “just law is a manmade code that squares with the moral law or the law of God ...”
Is it moral or Godly to allow our courts to implement laws that don’t square with moral law or God’s law?
No! It is not. Therefore, laws need to be changed where communities, like Pulaski County all over this great nation, can do as they please about deeply felt issues like displaying the Ten Commandments in their home courthouse if that is what they choose to do.
Patriotic Americans need to ban together and insist that the law be changed where unions like the ACLU cannot continue to stop religious freedoms in communities.
In the world we live in today, where we are threatened on a global basis everyday now with people who hate America, we need to honor God openly as never before. If we allow non-Christians to stop our open love for God and we participate in that by being silent, then wouldn’t we all wish we had done better if God removes His divine protection from us as a nation and because of our failure to fight (like Pulaski County did) we suffer at the hands of more terrorist attacks?
My point is that God wants to see us fight to honor Him, and not give into defeats like the ACLU winning a lawsuit against the county.
Let’s contact our representatives in Washington to have change in the laws that prevent God from being honored in our Christian country.
It is noteworthy to mention that the ACLU didn’t go after our United States Congress, who has in their inner chamber, chiseled in marble above the podium ... “In God We Trust.” Or our U.S. Government who has stamped on our money ... “In God We Trust.”
Perhaps, had the ACLU taken on our lawmakers that would have been deemed so outrageous that real action would be taken and laws changed where communities – whether state or county – could exercise their own local collective beliefs of which we, as a nation – a Christian nation – are so proud.
I am proud of Pulaski County standing up to the ACLU. It looks like it cost Pulaski County about $36,000 a year for the last 11 years to exercise a religious freedom that should be free. Let’s join Pulaski County to not stop there but fight to change existing (unjust) laws that don’t line up with the moral law. If not, the ACLU will just keep hacking away at our freedoms until we don’t even remember what this nation is all about. Let’s not let them forget!
