Dispatches recommended by Gary Bauer:
It is true, as Mr. Obama says, “We are a nation of Christians and Muslims, Jews and Hindus and nonbelievers.” But it also is true that we are a nation founded and formed by the Judeo-Christian understanding of God – an understanding deeply rooted in our founding documents and sustaining ideals.
To leave the words “under God” out of the Pledge or to omit the words “by their Creator” from the Declaration of Independence is to whitewash the truth. America’s ruling class often seems mystified or embarrassed by the nation’s religiosity.
But without our Judeo-Christian beliefs, we would lose our unique sense of liberty and justice, and that’s what attracts so many people from around the world to our shores and our way of life.
