Of course you can set your watch to the liberal response. Recognizing the threat to their own secular-socialist designs for America posed by a Christian socio-political revival - "progressive" conspirators have broken out the Saul Alinsky-crafted long knives.

They're painting those who call for a return to moral principle in public policy "dominionist" bogeymen who seek to "take over government" and impose an American, Taliban-like theocracy.

This, of course, is propagandist nonsense-- a silly ploy intended to frighten into action both the "progressive" base and fence-sitting independents.

Still, this much they have right: Christians and constitutionalists alike do intend to win the ongoing war for our culture. We do intend to "take over government" insofar as this means ensuring that true, traditionalist statesmen are elected to office.

You've heard it said, "You can't legislate morality." Baloney.

That's exactly what legislation is. The question is: Whose morality are we going to legislate? "Progressive" secular-socialists like President Obama insist it's their own, postmodern brand of moral relativism.

Christians, in fast-growing numbers, are beginning to say, "Not on our watch."

You've been lied to. The next time you hear someone appeal to the "separation of church and state," ask them to point you to exactly where in the Constitution that incessantly repeated and highly abused phrase can be found. They can't. It's not there.

Pastors, as this election cycle heats up, expect to receive threatening letters from anti-Christian paper tigers like Americans United for Separation of Church and State and the American Civil Liberties Union warning you that if you discuss politics from your pulpit, you stand to lose your tax-exempt status.

Know this: They're lying to you. That's what they do. That's all they have. This is merely a desperate attempt to muzzle Christians generally and pastors specifically.

In fact, guess how many churches have lost tax-exempt status for involvement in elective politics?

Exactly zero. Ever.

Rest assured, there are no signs that the Internal Revenue Service plans to completely trample the Constitution by targeting churches anytime soon. Even federal bureaucrats understand that bothersome little thing called the First Amendment.

John Adams, our second president, once said, "Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other."

Yes, liberals are nervous. They should be. Moral and religious people are taking our government back.
