Society: Society morally slipping away

It is very obvious that the atheists, the ACLU (I wonder if that means American Criminal Liberties Unlimited) and the liberal judges, who believe they can make their own laws, are attempting to abolish all references to God in public places. If this continues, there may be an uprising by the Americans who refuse to see our country destroyed from within. We Americans will no longer allow such travesties that are taking place, and if popular vote fails to accomplish what the people demand the possibility of the situation resulting in violence should not be discounted.

We will not stand idly by and see the attempted abomination of marriage laws. We will not stand by idly by and see the ten commandments eliminated from public viewing, or any such references to God or prayer eliminated from schools. We will not stand idly by and see the constitution replaced by self-interpretations and the personal whims of self-serving justices of the courts.

Unless the present downslide is brought to a halt, these could well be the final days of the America that our forefathers formed. It is time for the people, who cherish our basic tenants of freedom, to wake up to reality, stand up and speak out to their representatives. The slow erosion of our constitution must be stopped, and those in power who are causing such erosion must be replaced by ones who are willing to represent the people. Too many seem to have forgotten they are elected to serve the people, and not elected to be served by the people. Justices on the Supreme Court who considered pornography to be free speech should have been thrown out.

Surely, those in elected positions remember what caused the fall of the Roman Empire. With the acceptance of increased violence in so-called entertainment today and the erosion of morals and belief in the creator, how long before we again throw Christians to the lions?
