Christmas, and the Founding Principles of this Nation, is all about Christ

As we approach Christmas 2012, we need to remember the reason for the season.  The reason for the Christmas Season is Jesus Christ. I will not say "Happy Holidays," when the real response should be "Merry Christmas."

The reason for the season is the same as the reason for the liberty we enjoy in this nation.  Tyranny rejects faith, while divine providence was the source of the founding of America.  Our system has stood the test of time because we as a nation have embraced the Christian principles that went into the forging of this country into existence.

There is the secular way:

Religion is the impotence of the human mind to deal with occurrences it cannot understand. - Karl Marx

Religion is the opium of the masses. - Karl Marx

And there is the way of faith:

"The Bible is the best of all books, for it is the word of God and teaches us the way to be happy in this world and in the next. Continue therefore to read it and to regulate your life by its precepts." - John Jay, letter to Peter Augustus Jay, 1784

Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other - John Adams

Who should we listen to?  The father or communism, or the founders of this nation?
