Fighting the Culture War in America
A cultural war is raging across our land-storming our values, assaulting our freedoms, killing our self-confidence in who we are and what we believe. (The speaker then asked those present who support Obama to raise their hand.)
I wonder how many of you are Obama supporters but chose not to raise your hand? How many of you considered revealing your conviction about a presidential candidate, but then thought better of it?
If so, you are a victim of the culture war being waged against traditional American freedom of beliefs and ideas. You have been assaulted and robbed of the courage of your convictions. Your pride in who you are and what you believe in has been ridiculed, ransacked, and plundered! It may be a war without a bullet or bloodshed, but with just as much liberty lost: You and your country are less free!
