Editor Note: This article was submitted by a veteran who is terrified at what he’s seeing happen across America.  His recommendation to end the war on police officers and save the country?  Bring God back into society.  Here’s his story.

George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Samuel Adams, First Chief Justice John Jay;
Names synonymous with the spirit of our country; Founding fathers of the U.S.A.

Almost 250 years ago they shook off the chains of tyranny from Great Britain, by divine call;
Citing 27 biblical violations, they wrote the Declaration of Independence, With liberty and justice for all.

But something happened since Jefferson called the Bible the cornerstone for American liberty then put it in our schools as a light;
Or since “Give me liberty or give me death”, Patrick Henry said,
Our country was founded on the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

We eliminated God from the equation of American life, thus eliminating the reason this nation first began;
From beyond the grave I hear the voices of our founding fathers plead: You need God in America again.

Of the 55 men who formed the Constitution, fifty-two were active members of their church.
Founding fathers like Noah Webster who wrote the first dictionary, could literally quote the Bible chapter and verse.  

James Madison said, “We’ve staked our future on our ability to follow the Ten Commandments with all our heart.”
These men believed you couldn’t even call yourself an American if you subvert the Word of God.

In his farewell address, Washington said, “You can’t have national morality apart from religious principle,”

and it’s true; because right now daily we have kids carrying guns to these war zones we call public schools. 

In the ’40’s and ’50’s, student problems were chewing gum and talking;
In the ’90’s, rape and murder were the trend.
The only way this nation can hope to last this decade is to put God in America again.

Abe Lincoln said:

“The philosophy of the schoolroom in one generation will be the philosophy of the government of the next.”

So, when you eliminate the Word of God from the classroom and from politics, you may eliminate the nation that His Word protects.

America is now number one in teen pregnancy and violent crime, number one in illiteracy, drug use and divorce.
Every day a new holocaust of 3,000 unborn die, while pornography flood our streets like open sewers.

If there’s ever been a time to rise up Church, it’s now; and as the blood-bought saints of the living God proclaim:
It is time to send the alarm from the Church house to the White House and say, “We want God in America again.” 

I believe it’s time America to stand up and proclaim, that one nation under God is our demand.
And send this evil lifestyle back to Satan where it came from, and let the Word of God revive our dying land

Because astrology won’t save you, your horoscope won’t save you.
The Bible says these things are all farce.
If you’re born again you don’t need to look to the stars for your answers, because you can look to the very One who made those stars.

History tells us time and time again that to live like there’s no God makes you a fool.
So, if you want to see kids live right, stop handing out condoms and start handing out the Word of God in school.

We need God in America again!

The words above are not my own. They are the parts of a song called America Again, written in the early 90’s by Christian singers Carman and Michael O’Martian. 

Look, I know not everyone believes in God. But I think we can all agree that when God was allowed in schools and prayer was common in public spaces, we didn’t have many of the problems that we have today.

If you truly want to take a look at when this nation began a downslide into the moral depravity that we have witnessed over the past 20+ years, look no further than the assault on Christianity that was started by Madalyn Murray O’Hair.

This woman almost single-handedly dismantled any semblance of faith in the public sphere. She spent a lot of time suing different entities to have any and all references to God removed from schools, courthouses, capitol buildings and even the National Mall in Washington, DC.

It started in 1963 with Murray v. Curlett. This case challenged Bible reading and prayer recitations in Maryland public schools. It was the precursor to the removal of prayer in all public schools.

Ironically, back then, the worst instances of criminal activities in school was gum-chewing, running in the halls, graffiti and some fights.

Now, instead of teaching Biblical morality, we teach masturbation to 1st grade students, safe sex to high schoolers, and left-wing indoctrination to all of them.

And we have a crime problem in the demographic of 13 to 18-year-old kids. 

And O’Hair didn’t stop there.

-Murray v. United States (1964) To force the Federal Communications Commission to extend the Fairness Doctrine so that atheists could have equal time with religion on radio and television.

-Murray v. Nixon (1970) Challenged weekly religious services in the White House.

-O’Hair v. Paine (1971) Challenged open readings from the Bible by U.S. astronauts (who are Federal employees) during their spaceflights, spurred by a reading from the book of Genesis by the crew of Apollo 8.

-O’Hair v. Cooke (1977) Challenged the opening prayer at city council meetings in Austin, Texas.

-O’Hair v. Blumenthal (1978) Challenged the inclusion of the phrase “In God We Trust” on U.S. currency.

-O’Hair v. Hill (1978) To have removed from the Texas constitution a provision requiring a belief in God of persons holding offices of public trust.

-O’Hair v. Andrus (1979) Challenged the use of National Park facilities for the Pope to hold a Roman Catholic mass on the Mall in Washington, D.C.

-O’Hair v. Clements (1980) This case tried to remove the nativity scene displayed in the rotunda of the capitol building in Austin, Texas.

Just so you understand how morally depraved this woman was, she was the senior speech writer for Larry Flint’s 1984 presidential campaign. Yes, Larry Flint.

One thing is for sure, she knew that the words attributed to Abraham Lincoln were correct:

“The philosophy of the schoolroom in one generation will be the philosophy of the government of the next.”

But the truth remains, when God was front and center of everyday life, kids were not opening fire on their classmates.

Politicians that ranted and raved about bringing in socialism/communism were dismissed and discredited. They were not applauded and celebrated.

Yet, just two generations removed from O’Hair successfully challenging public school prayer, we are now dealing with the likes of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and all of her incoherent and incessant ramblings.

I am not arguing that life in the US was perfect before O’Hair arrived on the scene and started our downhill slide. It was far from perfect. Because we as people are far from perfect. Yes, we dealt with things like slavery, discrimination and segregation.

But I will argue that the world we lived in, for those of us old enough to remember it, 40 years ago was a far better societal place when prayer and Biblical teachings were commonplace.

As our first president said:

“You can’t have national morality apart from religious principle.”

So, what was Washington saying?

There must be a moral compass that we follow. A handheld compass must have a point of reference, and that is true north.

So too, must our moral compass have a point of reference and that is God Almighty.

He chooses to continue blessing this nation in spite of the stupidity we see being allowed and accepted. But if we do not, as a nation, repent and turn back to Him, it will only be a matter of time before he removes his favor form the United States of America.

But since I pray, I will continue to pray that He will not remove His favor, His grace or His unconditional love for us.

Please join me in that prayer on a daily basis.
