"Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other."
 -- John Adams (describing the American Constitutional Experiment)

Secularism refers to government without God. This is quite different from government that does not favor any particular religion. Instead of  “freedom OF religion,” secularism wants “freedom FROM religion” or a state-sponsored mandate NOT to exhibit religion (or any trace of a belief in divine laws) in governmental affairs. An individual merely choosing to be secular does not force others to so choose, but legislating such a choice for everyone in public discourse discourages freedom of religion for everyone else. That is then no longer a free society.

Because all religions share the same basic moral absolutes, a civilization that rejects moral absolutes as the foundation soon faces chaos, anarchy and then - usually some kind of dictatorship. “Men are qualified for civil liberty in exact proportion to their  disposition to put moral chains upon their own appetites—in proportion  as their love of justice is above their rapacity;—in proportion as their soundness and sobriety of understanding is above their vanity and  presumption;—in proportion as they are more disposed to listen to the  counsels of the wise and good, in preference to the flattery of knaves.  Society cannot exist, unless a controlling power upon the will and  appetite is placed somewhere: and the less of it there is within, the  more there must be without. It is ordained in the eternal constitution  of things, that men of intemperate minds can not be free. Their passions forge their fetters.” --- Edmund Burke

“Today we are seeing a progression of immoral laws rooted in secular humanism.  That happened the same way in pre-WWII Germany. Abandonment of any basis of Divine Law leaves godless ideology based on an adherence to unnatural laws of  error that produces only decadence and anarchy. Our nation has fallen  dramatically and exponentially in the past 50 years. It does not take an MSNBC anchor to comprehend that reality to its fullest extent. These  fifth column secularists are fully aware of this progression and are  moving as fast as they can to transform our nation into their  delusional, secular-socialist-utopian state.” --- Edmund Burke

Burke's lengthy speech goes on to review history and to expound on  the reasons for the outstanding success of the American colonies. He  attributes that success to the great spirit of liberty which is  exhibited among the citizenry, traces and explains that spirit as having 6 sources--"Then, Sir, from these six capital sources of descent, of form of government, of religion in the Northern Provinces, of manners  in the Southern, of education, of the remoteness of situation from the  first mover of government—from all these causes a fierce spirit of  liberty has grown up. It has grown with the growth of the people in your Colonies, and increased with the increase of their wealth; a spirit  that unhappily meeting with an exercise of power in England which,  however lawful, is not reconcilable to any ideas of liberty, much less  with theirs, has kindled this flame that is ready to consume us."

The Founders of America were passionate about ordered liberty. They saw the "Old World" as just that. In their "New World," oppression by  government was not to be tolerated. He spoke of the character and unique study and learning of the colonists in America. Burke noted: "In  other countries, the people, more simple, and of a less mercurial cast,  judge of an ill principle in government only by an actual grievance;  here they anticipate the evil, and judge of the pressure of the  grievance by the badness of the principle. They augur misgovernment at a distance, and snuff the approach of tyranny in every tainted breeze."

In warning the Parliament and discussing how governments govern, at one  point he observed, "Despotism itself is obliged to truck and huckster." A govrnment that is attempting to impose its will on a free people--in  any country--must mislead and "sell" its cause. Perhaps that is what we  are seeing today.


Religion (a spiritual philosophy) is mostly relative to individuals.  You - from your reply - I believe hold the Bible and the moral laws as  relative. Thus your reply…. You are probably one who most likely  consider yourself a conservative but are probably mostly a fiscal  conservative first and hold a relative position on moral issues or  social conservatism.

Sound moral principles reflect the Creator. so when they are applied  in society there is harmony and prosperity. When they are scoffed at and rejected there is great anarchy and devastating consequences.. as at  present. To know how the machine works we read the owner manual.. To  know how creation and society are to work we read the Creator’s manual.. the Bible. If you reject the Bible and God’s natural moral laws that  are crucial for a health society… then there will be problems.

My Friend, if you have the time read “the 5000 Year Leap”. It is  singly the greatest book for understanding our founding fathers vision  and comprehension of the laws of Nature and of Nature’s God.
