THE PEOPLE SPEAK – Wake up, America, and see the signs

— I have some concerns as to where America is headed. Our Supreme Court has legalized homosexual marriage, I believe now it’s legal in about 13 states. Do we not have one Supreme Court judge that believes in the Bible and that Jesus Christ is our only lord and savior?

We live in the “Bible Belt,” really? They have removed prayer from our schools but it’s OK to put offensive commercials on television from tampons to condoms. As parents, don’t we teach our children about certain things in the privacy of our homes? They even have cartoons children shouldn’t be allowed to watch. Almost everyone on television is either about sex or violence.

A&E wanted to pull a show off the air called “Duck Dynasty” for the simple fact they would show them hunting, then at the end of each show the Robertson family would be sitting around the dinner table and they would end the show by praying before they ate their meal. A&E decided they shouldn’t be hunting then end the show in prayer. The Robertson family are God fearing people, so they said “no hunting, no praying, no show.”

Acts 10:13, “And there came a voice to him, ‘Rise Peter, kill and eat.’” That’s the way our ancestors survived, not only pioneers, but in Biblical time. Did you know God destroyed Israel because they started turning from his word? He gave them signs and they ignored him. If God destroyed Israel, what do you think he will do to America?

Another thing that is disturbing to me, after church, I went by Hastings Video to buy a movie on the life story of Reverend Billy Graham and not one employee in the store knew who Reverend Billy Graham was. That concerns me. Open your eyes America, see the signs, you’re ignoring them just like Israel ignored them.
