Dec. 20, 2013: Letters to the editor

(Continued)

The goal of Freedom Indiana is simple: build a bipartisan, grassroots coalition to stop the amendment. We’ve helped make tens of thousand of phone calls and write thousands of letters to lawmakers to let lawmakers know HJR-6 will divide our state when we should be working together to tackle issues that will improve the quality of life for everyone.

As a mom and a volunteer, I made a vow I would do everything in my power to stop this amendment from getting voted into the Indiana Constitution, and I hope you share that commitment.

This holiday season, as you gather with friends and family, remember this debate is about more than protections for same-sex couples: It’s about justice for all.

If we go to prayer, will God forgive us?

Our country is unraveling. Civility is on the decline. People are losing trust in each other and their government. All of this is being brought about because we are on a journey to delete God from our society as a whole.

The deletion of God began back in the ’60s when God was forced out of our schools. Atheists, with the help of the ACLU, are on a campaign to destroy any semblance of a spiritual country.

There was a time when America was the bastion for religious freedom for those escaping from governmental tyranny in Europe. The authors of our Constitution based it on Judeo-Christian principles, but today’s liberal lawyers and judges are gradually, slowly, eroding this truth.

Youth crime is up. Disputes once settled by fistfights have now downgraded into a killing field. God has been deleted from government grounds, i.e., Ten Commandments, Nativity scenes and crosses, through erroneous lawsuits based on an untruth: “separation of church and state.” The truth is, early presidents have used federal funds to establish churches and encourage faith.
