Church and State

        I hope everyone had a blessed Christmas holiday.  The birth of Christ is the most celebrated day in the Christian religion.  I am surprised by some surveys that show many people do not recognize Christmas as a religious holiday.  Despite that, I think I heard more Merry Christmas and less Happy Holidays this year.  I hope it was not just my imagination. 
        I am so thankful we have a President who is using and promoting the Merry Christmas greeting.  It is good to have the Christian religion and prayer return to the White House. 
            We need more Christian morality in today’s world.  Our founding fathers knew that the republic they formed had little chance of success without Christian morality.  Christians do recognize the rights of people to follow other religions as long as that religion is peaceful and does not infringe on the laws of man and God.
        Liberals talk about the separation of church and state, but our founding fathers never wanted to take religion out of government.  They just did not want the government to dictate religion or restrict people’s freedom of religious expression.  They even allowed states to have an official religion.
      The First Amendment to the Constitution was meant to guarantee religious freedom of expression and not restrict that right.  Let's stop restricting Christians' freedom of expression.  We have gotten off track and allow discrimination against Christians. 

God bless President Trump and guide him to make America great again.
