All ye who trust in God, start praying

America loves God

But does God love America?

‘In God We Trust’ is the official motto of the United States.

By a 1956 order of Congress, the words are inscribed on the walls of courtrooms and federal buildings, on dollar bills and coins. They are part of the national anthem, ‘The Star-Spangled Banner’ — Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just, / And this be our motto: ‘In God is our trust.’

Politicians always end their speeches with variations of “And God bless America.”

God is everywhere in America. Not many other countries extol and rely on the Christian God as much as America.

En Dios Confiamos

The Republic of Nicaragua lives by such a motto — En Dios Confiamos. There are others but they are few.

Certain organizations and advocates of separation of church and state object to the motto and file law suits from time to time to abolish it, but they fall by the wayside.

The opposition is a tiny voice in the wilderness. ‘In God We Trust’ as a motto and a code to live by is supported by a huge majority of citizens. America, after all, has more Christians than any other country in the world.

So, no doubt about it, America loves God. But — does God love America?

America has been a rowdy nation from the beginning. But it has also been a brave and resilient one. The citizenry has faced and overcome many apocalyptic events in 244 years. The list reads like a litany from hell.

And 2020 is no exception — the unholy trinity of Covid, the deadly riots, and an election November 3rd that looms like a bad version of ‘Return of the Swamp Thing.’

For the millions of Americans who put their trust in God, there’s no better time to start praying. And praying hard.

PEACEFUL PROTESTS? LIKE HELL THEY ARE!

Racial hatred and violence tore America apart in the 1960s, and it’s doing it again in 2020, as history repeats itself and the Un-united States of America fights for its life.

The current surge of violence is led by thugs supposedly massing under the banner of Black Lives Matter in what the mainstream media laughably labels “peaceful protests.” There’s nothing peaceful about protests that kill innocent people, burn down the shops and businesses of law-abiding citizens and wipe out their livelihood.

If the protesters genuinely cared about black lives, or any lives, their protests would be peaceful, as advocated by Martin Luther King. Every time their protests cause death and destruction they are violating, not only the law, but the fervent teachings of their spiritual and motivational leader. They bloody the peaceful crusade for which, on April 4, 1968, he gave his life.

BIDEN’S RACIST CRIME BILL

America is in trouble. And don’t look to a weak old white man like the Democrat presidential candidate to save the country. He helped create the problem.

In 1994, then Senator Joe Biden worked closely with segregationists, most of them personal friends, to put a new crime bill into law that led to mass incarceration of Black people, many of them innocent. Biden referred to Blacks at the time as “predators,” adding, “Lock the S.O.B.s up.”

Now of course, at the doddering old age of 77, as he tries to prolong his white power career in Washington, he sings a different tune.

To which columnist Michael Goodwin replies: Yes you do!

Meanwhile, the mainstream media blithely go on the air and talk about “peaceful protests” amid live-camera footage of raging fires and people running in fear of their lives as gunshots shatter any illusion of peacefulness. Do they think we’re stupid?

The Democrat candidate and his followers said nothing about all the mayhem and murder until it was shown to be hurting his poll numbers — and then, and only then, did he start speaking out against it. In his vernacular, Come on, man, cut the bullshit.

SHAKE THE WINDOWS, RATTLE THE WALLS

Come senators, congressmen, please heed the call,

Don’t stand in the doorway, don’t block up the hall.

For he that gets hurt will be he who has stalled,

There’s a battle outside and it’s raging.

It’ll soon shake your windows and rattle your walls,

For the times they are a-changing!

 — Bob Dylan
