Those of us living as citizens in this country are especially blessed considering the state in which much of humanity must exist. Freedom to worship and an understanding that our liberties are inalienable - the provenance of God, not of man - are at the heart of our blessed liberty.
Much blood and treasure has been invested in these liberties and their underlying principles. Unfortunately we are all fallen humans. Our natural instincts are not godly. We've been on a long slow march away from our founding doctrines - both scriptural and constitutional. If we don't push back against this tide it won't be long before very few will know the founding doctrines and those who haven't forgotten them will not be permitted to freely express them.
