Jules Witcover unwittingly gave us a good run down of the problem inherent in the Democrat party in his: what it will take to “To beat Trump” opinion (FNP — Sept 5). Principles don’t matter, “electability” is all that matters.
He proceeds to make the indefensible assertion that Trump is “running roughshod” over a host of our nation’s most honored commitments. I would address all that he mentioned but given limited space allow me to test his assertion concerning “religious freedom”.
The “secular humanist” mentality has infiltrated our culture via the Democrat party and its allies (the media, academia and Hollywood). As such, it is anything but an advocate for “religious freedom”. It is clearly about deconstructing (transforming) the Constitution and the Judeo/Christian moral values that are inherent in its development. It would, as Obama attempted to do during his administration, reduce “freedom of religion” to “freedom of worship”. This was further evident in his healthcare initiative that mandated provisions contrary to religious convictions.
Witcover claims Trump has injected a poison into the American political bloodstream. I prefer to think of Trump’s injection as an antidote to the ideological poison already infecting our political system – the desire to turn our nation under God into a nation under man. Trump is a sinner, but so are we all. I prefer to live in a nation under God.
