'A Sad Day For America'


I agree with Chief Justice William Rehnquist when he said that the majority's ruling on public prayer "bristles with hostility to all things religious in public life." Then (the court) turns around and lifts the ban on partial birth abortions.

They say a woman has the right to have her baby slaughtered with no regard to the baby's right to live. Today we have a court of judges, not elected by the people, who purposely forget what the Constitution says, taking away not only state rights but the rights of the individuals by the stroke of a pen.

That is a sad day for America. We are rapidly moving into a state of social, intellectual and moral decline. We are in a life and death struggle for the hearts and minds of the next generation. Spiritual matters are not in our vocabulary any more because of the humiliation given us by the elite, the Civil Liberties Union, and now the Supreme Court.

A writer once stated, "Tolerance is the virtue of people who do not believe in anything." When we become so accommodating of evil that we neither recognize nor oppose it, our moral collapse is imminent.
