Do you know about the American Center for Law and Justice? It addresses issues regarding the unborn, the Constitution, freedom of religion and a host of other causes that concern the Christian community. It also serves to educate Christians on these matters. It has become all to clear that too many Christians - those who attend church Sunday after Sunday - have not educated themselves on issues vital to our country. In fact, many today have no idea what is occurring in their own country, nor in the world. Unfortunately, far too few read little, if anything, of what it is being published that should cause Christians to be on the alert. Most disturbing, too many Christians receive little or no critical information from the pulpit. An exception to this statement was th call by two Chicago clergymen - the Rev. Charles Lyons, Armitage Baptist Church, and the Cardinal Francis George - for Chicago's mayor not to disrespect the traditional view of marriage by Christians. Their statement was made in response to attacks upon Dan Cathy, CEO of Chick-Fil-A, for his public stance on the biblical view of marriage he and his family business associates hold.
Do you recall how Christians stood by in Germany during the rise of Nazism, how they closed their eyes to the all-to-real atrocities inflicted on their Jewish countrymen? Awaken Christians! Open your eyes and minds! Liberty, that once stalwart principle of our Republic, now is bruised, disintegrating and rapidly slipping away. Here are two books well worth reading, both by Erwin W. Lutzer, that are mind-opening: ''When a Nation Forgets God'' and ''Hitler's Cross.'
Are Christians going to stand by and let Liberty erode to the point of no return? Why not join with Southern Tier Tea Party Patriots in working to save this must cherished principle embodied in our Constitution? We meet at 7 p.m., every fourth Tuesday, in the Lakewood American Legion. You will find your participation to be instructive and rewarding.
