A matter of faith

A recent poll by NBC (9/27/2007) revealed an interesting fact about how most Americans feel about their faith. To NBC’s surprise, 86 percent of respondees want to keep the words “In God We Trust” on our money and keep “God” in the Pledge of Allegiance. Only 14 percent were opposed.

In a democracy, the majority vote prevails. Unfortunately, the major newspapers, radio and TV do not reflect the Christian world view. Just the opposite. The small minority usurped control of the media by favoring a secular, materialistic world view, with help of liberal judges and public education, which has been intimidated by the ACLU, not to mention God, in public forum. Their plans for a strictly secular America are inconsistent with reality: The majority of our citizens know that the Christian principles based on the Ten Commandments are the source of our freedoms and the whole social order – and prefer to keep it that way.
