The "continual slide toward socialism"

I cannot believe I forgot this piece for my previous post: some of the conversation about church and state last night got going because of Bob Jones III's congratulatory letter to George W. Bush:

Dear Mr. President:

The media tells us that you have received the largest number of popular votes of any president in America's history. Congratulations!

In your re-election, God has graciously granted America—though she doesn't deserve it—a reprieve from the agenda of paganism. You have been given a mandate. We the people expect your voice to be like the clear and certain sound of a trumpet. Because you seek the Lord daily, we who know the Lord will follow that kind of voice eagerly.

Don't equivocate. Put your agenda on the front burner and let it boil. You owe the liberals nothing. They despise you because they despise your Christ. Honor the Lord, and He will honor you.

Of course there is more. Go read it for yourself.

For those of you who are not residents of Dumbfuckistan, and who perhaps are not familiar with the non-accredited Bob Jones University, you might start your explorations here, but if you're interested in the controversies surrounding their now eliminated policies prohibiting interracial dating and their loss of tax-exempt status, you could look here.

As one more addendum, have a look at this letter from the Greenville (SC) News:

Hats off and a thank you to the many Democrats who heeded the cries of our religious leaders.
For several years many leaders have encouraged every lover of God and country to cast aside party affiliations and to pray before voting. Apparently, many responded to this appeal and we have four more years of leadership from a man, not a Democrat or Republican, but a man who fears God and upholds the dignity of life and desires to protect the rights of unborn babies.

The recent presidential campaigns covering the last 20 years paint a picture of the future platform of the Democratic Party going from a moderate to a liberal and to the present radicalism agenda. Webster defines "radical" as: "Tending or disposed to make extreme changes in existing views, habits, conditions or institutions."

This party that is presently controlled by the likes of Ted Kennedy, George Soros, Michael Moore, mainline media, academia, Hollywood, the socialists and Marxists, etc., is the same party that Zell Miller claims has left the moderate wing of the party.

With the continual slide toward socialism, it will be interesting to see where the moderate wing of the Democratic Party finds itself poised for future elections. I trust that they will vote for the good of our country and for the future of our children and grandchildren and that we all, both Republicans and Democrats, disregard party affiliations, family traditions and union ties and vote according to the Judeo-Christian heritage established by the founders of this great country.

Don Harkins of Easley, my tinfoil hat is off to you, for your desire to read the "mainline media" as liberal--oh, what a day would that be!--and your ability to be blind to your own radicalism. Oh yeah--and your similar blindness to the First Amendment to the Constitution!
