Was God Excluded From CPAC?

Was God Excluded From CPAC?

Was God excluded from CPAC?
Many moderate Republican journalists and bloggers who have wrongly stolen the title of the word conservative have expressed dissatisfaction about who is being excluded from CPAC.(links to some of these articles can be found below.) The most controversial exclusions being GOProud and Chris Christie.

Being a conservative isn’t just about economics and balancing a check book and people who believe that are truly missing the bigger picture. Obama care is the greatest threat to our nation for a multitude of reasons. We all are aware of how it will cripple our economy but its threat runs deep on a multitude of fronts. Last week on the Mark Levin show he brought up a court case he read in cnsnews.com. Tyndale House Publishers who makes Bibles challenged the Obama administration’s regulation requiring health-care plans to cover sterilizations, contraceptives and abortion-inducing drugs based on religion. Benjamin Berwick, a lawyer for the Civil Division of the Justice Department argued that once someone forms a corporation to conduct business or even when doctors incorporate a medical practice that they lose their first amendment right to freedom of religion. Wow! If this doesn’t fully express the dark days we live in, then nothing will. Forget about the war on women. There is a war against God and the faithful.

Obamacare and this case made me think of a Ronald Reagan quote:

7

“I believe with all my heart that standing up for America means standing up for the God who has so blessed our land. I believe this country hungers for a spiritual revival. I believe it longs to see traditional values reflected in public policy again. To those who cite the first amendment as reason for excluding God from more and more of our institutions and everyday life, may I just say: The first amendment of the Constitution was not written to protect the people of this country from religious values; it was written to protect religious values from government tyranny. We need God’s help to guide our nation through stormy seas. But we can’t expect Him to protect America in a crisis if we just leave Him over on the shelf in our day-to-day living.”Ronald Reagan

New Jersey GOP Gov. Chris Christie accepted the Medicaid expansion under Obamacare and has done nothing to fight the biggest threat to our nation. How does this classify him as a conservative? Why would we even consider him a potential leader in our movement? After hearing what Benjamin Berwick from the Justice Department said, anyone not fighting against Obamacare should be an enemy of the conservative movement.

Aside from Christie, the other CPAC controversy wasGOProud. GOProud is a tax exempt organization representing Republican gay men, lesbians, and their allies. The left likes to break our citizens down into categories. I generally don’t like to do this but I’ll spend a minute doing it today to make a point. Most of these moderate Republicans who write articles are appalled that conservatives would be exclusive at CPAC because they are in a panic state thinking we need to appease certain groups to create a bigger tent thus creating more Republican voters. Here is how they get it wrong. At last estimate the gay population in the United States accounts for approximately 11 million people. With any group you’ll never get 100% of them voting and since most of the 11 million are also categorized as very young, there would be an even lower voter turnout. However, for arguments sake let’s just assume that the entire 11 million vote and that it would be 50/50 DEM to GOP. That means that even in the best case scenario we might be able to get 5.5 million gay American voters to vote Republican.

Romney was the first presidential candidate to win the Independent voters but lose the election. Why is that? Because many conservatives were fed up with the endless trail of Bushes, McCain and Romney nominees being pushed on us by the Karl Rove types. After 25 years without a conservative presidential candidate, many true conservatives sat out this past election cycle.

Evangelical Christians make up 26 percent of adults in the country, according to a major Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life survey. The U.S. Census says there are more than 311 million people in the United States. If evangelical adults are 26 percent of them, then there would be 80 million potential voters. Rev. Franklin Graham claimed right after the election last November that according to his numbers a “majority of Christians” did not vote. Is it possible that in an attempt to appease the 4-6 million gay voters that are doubtful at best, the GOP is alienating the 80 million evangelicals who are casting a vote against our immorality?

For the most part, gays are not treated badly in our society. They are not denied rights. They are not discriminated against. It’s gone beyond the point of acceptance and towards the point of promoting homosexual behavior in our culture. Advertising works, which is why so many young conservatives have been brought up in this culture to believe that being for traditional marriage is the same as if you had been against civil rights in the 1960’s. Every day we see the media trying to mutate gender roles in every way. We are bombarded with it everywhere. People who stand for traditional marriage don’t hate gay people. We need to stop letting the left write the narrative. Our founders knew that a country that was void of morals would not be able to remain a republic for long. When the left says that they want to fundamentally transform our society they mean every aspect of our society. Through history if you break up the traditional family and get people to turn away from God, they naturally turn to the government. This is the lefts agenda to replace God with government. Our country was founded on Judeo Christian beliefs. Our framers studied philosophy, Natural Law, the basis of moral government and hundreds of years of human existence. Conservatives continue this tradition. I would argue that you can’t even be conservative if you don’t study and believe this. We don’t lunge rapidly into experimenting with new uncharted methods of society and culture, such as raising our children in completely new untested ways. Our civil society is what made this nation great.

“The biblical viewpoint of marriage has been the universal understanding of marriage in every human civilization in world history. Modern secular psychology recognizes that men and women are psychologically and emotionally designed to complement one another. In regard to the family, psychologists contend that a union between a man and woman in which both spouses serve as good gender role models is the best environment in which to raise well-adjusted children.” says The Family Center. We should give great thought and long debate to the idea of bringing our children up in new ways that the Bible warned us against. Constitutionally speaking, these decisions should be made at the state level, preferable by the voters and not the courts, so that regardless of your position, if you don’t like where that state stands, you will have the option to move to a state that does reflect the values and lifestyle you are looking for.

Be unashamed and unabashed to stand for God and Americas Judeo Christian way of life. Be G.O.D. proud! American tradition relies on both fiscal and social conservatism. The left wants to transform all aspects of our society and we must try to preserve all of our principles and traditions that made this country the greatest nation on Earth, not just the economic ones. I know that it is a daunting overwhelming task that looms before us like an uphill battle but it is a fight we can win. Our country has faced hardships before: the revolution, civil war, world wars, the great depression. Time and time again we have used our pioneer spirit to pull ourselves out of ruin and to once again triumph as an exceptional dominant force for good in the world. We will do it again but we must take a stand for principles and virtue.

Remember “He who stands for nothing will fall for anything.” Alexander Hamilton

  1. D. Anderson says:

    What an absolutely wonderful article. You hit the nail on the head on every point. I weep for what my country has become and I am enraged at what the republican party has become (especially considering how the rino’s in the house voted today). Please keep up the good fight and keep putting out these fantastic esssays.

    • Thanks for reading this and for leaving me such a nice comment. ” I weep for what my country has become and I am enraged at what the republican party has become especially considering how the rino’s in the house voted today” <- I really know how you feel about that and I am right there with you! We'll get through this together as Americans, good days and bad. God bless you! Keep in touch.

      • Cassidy Montoya says:

        It makes me sad that I can be so disappointed in a country in which I was born in. I feel like we are all being pulled in one direction and we don’t really have a say in it.

    • D.Anderson, Do you feel a little more hopeful today after seeing the reaction to Rand Paul’s filibuster? Ted Cruz and the others were very inspirational, I thought. It’s obvious America is starved for liberty.

  2. Pete Baker says:

    I agree with D. Anderson great article.

  3. It is true that we, as Americans, want and need our liberty but as each and every one of us stand up against those who would try to take it, we become pigeon-holed into this group or that. We are called racist, anti-gay and even un-American! Unfortunately, this becomes fuel for the fire of the opposition, leaving us all out in the cold when the big issues come to Washington’s door-step. Thankfully, we still have good people, both in Washington and on the streets of our fine country, who will make sure our liberties are protected and our voices are heard.

    • Good comment Ed. Conservatives do get slandered on a daily basis. That’s what happens when the statist control most of the media and the entertainment industry.Hopefully over the next hundred years we can try to get some of our children and grandchildren into those industries. The population is still on our side. A majority of the people are still patriotic people of faith despite what Washington D.C. and the media tells us to be. Thanks for the thoughtful comments.

  4. To replace God with government would be ludicrous. God is supposed to give us something to believe in, something our more recent government has not been able to do in a while.

  5. In my opinion, the only people in this country who aren’t getting a fair shake are the Christians. It seems like every time I turn around I hear this group or that group complaining how the government is not being fair to them. Really?! Every time one of these groups complain, we all get hushed and shoved aside to appease them. It’s ridiculous.

    • Yes, I see what you mean. Christians have been vilified. The biggest threats to both socialists and Muslim extremist terror groups are: The USA, Israel, Christians and Jews. Plus I’m sick of political correctness. It only applies to certain groups. Thanks for reading and commenting.

  6. matt neymeyer says:

    I think Governor Christie did what he did for himself, not for the people of New Jersey and certainly not for the conservative movement.

  7. briancarlostyle says:

    What is wrong with out country? We are suppose to be free and yet I see our rights being stripped away from us on a daily basis. This article shows exactly what it means to live in a country that has pretty much lost us as a nation.

  8. I am often told that I am a conservative on hand but then on the other I am called a liberal. I believe in the right to be free for every person not matter their race, gender, or sexual preference. We are suppose to be free. I use to be extremely patriotic but not anymore. I feel like I have had the blinds pulled over my eyes for years and I am just waking up to realize what our country has become.

  9. What ever happened to “One nation under God”? I guess it went out the window when everyone started being politically correct about everything and had to get rid of the Bibles and God because not everyone agreed with it. Well, why don’t we get rid of some of these political parties or people running our nation since some of us don’t agree with them either?!

  10. paulschol says:

    What ever happened to “One nation under God”? I guess they decided to get rid of it since some people didn’t agree with it. Well, maybe we should get rid of some of these idiots who are running our country since some of us don’t agree with them either?!

    • Ruby Singer says:

      I couldn’t have said it better. There are just too many things that goes on that we can’t even talk about nowadays since we might offend someone. I can understand not using slain words but some of this is just down right ignorant.

  11. God is always being excluded. I can’t understand what happened to the US or why our government feels that they should make choices on christianity when it affects the very thing that this nation was built on.

  12. I think it should remain at the state level since I know that my state would probably never vote for gay marriages and there are probably a few more out there that would never do it either. I have to say probably because everything seems to change over time and we don’t know what may happen.

    • Ricky Chavez says:

      I agree, it should remain at the state level but what happens when all of the states start to agree on the same things? Where is that going to leave the few of us that will probably remain who don’t agree with gay marriage or other elephants in the room?

  13. The way I look at it is if you don’t vote then you can’t complain. I know that most of the advertisements are meant to persuade the voters but if you don’t know what to vote or who fits into your category of what you believe would make the best person then you should study up on it. This is in response to part of your article.

  14. Autumn Marie says:

    As a person it is easy for me to judge but as a person who serves in the US military, I am often told to not say what is on my mind especially when it comes to our commander in chief or anyone else who is doing his bidding but I can say that I agree with every part of this article.

    Excellent article. Thank you.
