30 Days of Truth - Day 19

What do I think of religion? What do I think of politics?

I believe that religion and politics should go hand in hand. But they do not. At least they do not anymore. This country was founded on Christian beliefs and on the Word of God. I don't think there should be a separation of church and state, because that's not what this country is based on. How can you separate two things that are so innately tied to one another?

But because people with more liberal views have made their voices heard and made their reasons or points of proof for their beliefs so common sensical, the views of this country have been swayed. In the Bible, punishment was an eye for an eye. If you stole something, they chopped your hand off. You couldn't steal with that hand again! Somewhere along the way, somebody appealed to the emotional and sympathetic side of humans saying the punishment was too harsh for the crime. Now look at how things are going! If you steal today, you get a slap on the wrist and then you can go back home without a single consequence. Sounds crazy, huh?

This country is falling further away from God! If we had listened to our founding fathers, to those who believed in God, to those who followed his laws and not their own, we would not be in this situation. But Americans are Americans because those who came before us wanted freedom of religion and freedom of speech. Maybe some of those people shouldn't have said so much!
