    I am an American, born when America was a free nation. While we are still the most free nation in the world, there is an enormous difference now.

    Opinion:
    If one person in a million doesn’t like something because it is “offensive” the million will have to adjust to the one.

    Life of an unborn baby is reduced to the object of controversy.

    Marriage as Americans have always had it is no longer constitutional.

    There is not just a vague line between democrat and republican now, there is a solid concrete wall.

    God’s name is not allowed in many places now. (unless that name is Allah)

    God and country are no longer allowed to be combined. (unless it is the Muslim God)

    Prayer is offensive, and has to be done where others are not offended. (Unless you are Muslim)

    It is getting to the place where the only place a person can be an active Christian is within the walls of the church building. (Muslims have more freedom)

    Immorality is now a freedom and a right, to be honored and cherished.

    The Bible has been replaced at the Whitehouse, and Allah is the person to celebrate and pray to. (the National Day of Prayer has been moved out of the Whitehouse, and those who pray during that time cannot be in the Whitehouse, or are not welcomed)

    Government owns large corporations, the auto industry, banks, and anything they want to take over now.

    Corruption is the rule now, not the exception.

    You don’t even have to be from America to be a President now.

    Lies are expected, and not rejected now by our so called leaders.

    Minorities have all the rights now, the majority must sit silently.

    Minorities get everything free now, and the majority is paying the bill.

    When a person who is not a minority qualified financially for subsidized housing, food stamps, or other helps, they can only get those things if they lie. That is how many minorities get then, but the non minority will be checked out. (personal experience more than once)

    Fact:

    God is still my master.

    My faith is still my guide.

    The Bible is still the manual for what is right.

    The government still must yield to God, if God says so .

    Walking by faith may be scary, and even dangerous now, but it is still the best way.

    Sharing our faith is still God’s command, and we will. (whenever and wherever God leads)

    Prayer is communication with God, and His desire is that we do that all the time. We will.

    Unborn babies are living beings, known and loved by God. (Ps. 139)

    Sex outside of marriage is sin, but God does not hate the sinner.

    Gay sex is sin, But God loves gays.

    God says, “you are either for me or against me.” There is no in between.

    Right is right even when only a few is doing it.

    Wrong is wrong, even when the majority is doing it.

    America needs God, and Christians. Her rejection of both is the beginning of her demise.

    America is not who she used to be. These things were a common belief in this nation, now they have become thought of as offensive and hateful. No, America is not the same. This is a different country now.

    I pray the nation will wake up and stand up, and if needed fight to return to her sanity.

    The republic into which I was born no longer, culturally, exists, for good or bad.

    Our lives cannot be static.

    The America I was born into had Blacks kept seperate. Seperate businesses, ride in the back of the bus, etc.
    Also girls could not wear pants to school.
    Indoor plumbing was a rarity.
    No fast food joints.
    No cellphones and few even had phones.
    many had no electricity in rural areas.

    The only thing that seems to stay constant is wars.
