Because this is just too good, funny and on the mark to pass up.
Doug Giles nails this one out of the park and hits the jawbone of an ass on the way out.

Last week Obama told the planet on his Dixie Chick America Sucks Euro-Tour that ol’ bigheaded America is not and has never been a Christian nation. I believe he said that right after he bowed and curtsied to the Saudi King and told the French that the US has been stuck-up meanies to their jealous and ungrateful Euro-socialist cousins. Damn you, Yankee doodle dandies.
America’s not a Christian nation? Well, it’s not a Hindu, Buddhist, Muslim (yet) or Tai Chi nation. I know Barack is auguring for the USA to become an Obamanation, but heretofore from what I’ve read regarding our founders’ beliefs and original intent for this experiment in self-government, this Republic has a massive intentional Judeo-Christian bent to it and not a religiously neutral one. Stevie Wonder can see that.
Yep, our founding fathers liberally mixed our nation’s political cement with the rock-solid truths of the Judeo-Christian worldview. Christianity wasn’t the state’s declared religion, but our framers clearly stated that Christ and Moses were where this bad boy came from.
For example, Mr. President, consider this small little offering from a few of our founders regarding Jesus, Christianity and this archaic book called the Bible. Also, all you RINO wonks who want Christians and Christianity scrubbed from the GOP because you think we are ruining the party, you ought to read the following, as well. Christians are ruining the party? Puh-lease. Uh, we started the party, dillweeds. You’re the ones who’re whizzing on it.
For instance . . .
You remember John, don’t ‘cha? He was a signer of the Declaration of Independence, a judge, diplomat, signer of the Bill of Rights, and second President of the United States. Yeah, that John Adams. He said the following:
“The general principles on which the fathers achieved independence were the general principles of Christianity. I will avow that I then believed, and now believe, that those general principles of Christianity are as eternal and immutable as the existence and attributes of God.”
I bet your gay communist PoliSci teacher at Light-a-Fart University never told you that, eh? Allow me to continue.
“The Christian religion is, above all the religions that ever prevailed or existed in ancient or modern times, the religion of wisdom, virtue, equity and humanity.” That’ll tick the UN off, now won’t it?
The above from Adams sounds kinda Christiany to me. Do you need another example? How about old JQA, John Quincy Adams, the sixth president of the US, diplomat, Secretary of State, US Senator, and US Representative.
“My hopes of a future life are all founded upon the Gospel of Christ and I cannot cavil or quibble away [evade or object to]. . . . the whole tenor of His conduct by which He sometimes positively asserted and at others countenances [permits] His disciples in asserting that He was God.”
I wonder if Chris Matthews, head Beavis on MSNBC, would’ve mocked him for his faith like he did Sarah Palin?
Quincy continues . . .
“The hope of a Christian is inseparable from his faith. Whoever believes in the Divine inspiration of the Holy Scriptures must hope that the religion of Jesus shall prevail throughout the earth. Never since the foundation of the world have the prospects of mankind been more encouraging to that hope than they appear to be at the present time. And may the associated distribution of the Bible proceed and prosper till the Lord shall have made ‘bare His holy arm in the eyes of all the nations, and all the ends of the earth shall see the salvation of our God’ [Isaiah 52:10].”
Hmm, do you think Kathleen Parker would have pooh-poohed old goofy John and his mixing of God and government if she were around back then? More from JQA . . .
“In the chain of human events, the birthday of the nation is indissolubly linked with the birthday of the Savior. The Declaration of Independence laid the cornerstone of human government upon the first precepts of Christianity.”
I’m so glad Adams didn’t read Cal Thomas’ book, Blinded by Might, because he might have never run for office.
Signer of the Declaration of Independence, “father of the American Revolution,” ratifier of the US Constitution, governor of Massachusetts, brewer of killer beer said the following . . .
“I conceive we cannot better express ourselves than by humbly supplicating the Supreme Ruler of the world . . . that the confusions that are and have been among the nations may be overruled by the promoting and speedily bringing in the holy and happy period when the kingdoms of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ may be everywhere established, and the people willingly bow to the scepter of Him who is the Prince of Peace.”
He also called on the state of Massachusetts to pray that . . .
• The peaceful and glorious reign of our Divine Redeemer may be known and enjoyed throughout the whole family of mankind.
• We may with one heart and voice humbly implore His gracious and free pardon through Jesus Christ, supplicating His Divine aid . . . [and] above all to cause the religion of Jesus Christ, in its true spirit, to spread far and wide till the whole earth shall be filled with His glory.
And lastly, for now, we have John Hancock, signer of the Declaration of Independence, president of Congress, Revolutionary general (you remember him, don’t ‘cha?) and governor of Massachusetts said the following, much to the secularists’ and wussy RINOs’ chagrin:
“Sensible of the importance of Christian piety and virtue to the order and happiness of a state, I cannot but earnestly commend to you every measure for their support and encouragement.”
He also called on the State of Massachusetts to pray . . .
“That with true contrition of heart we may confess our sins, resolve to forsake them, and implore the Divine forgiveness, through the merits and mediation of Jesus Christ, our Savior. . . . And finally to overrule all the commotions in the world to the spreading the true religion of our Lord Jesus Christ in its purity and power among all the people of the earth.”
That’s just a smattering of quotes from a few founders regarding Jesus, Christianity and the Bible. For more 411 than you can imagine or handle about the faith of our founding fathers, click here. Lastly, when the president, Newsweak and sycophantic RINOs try to diminish our Christian heritage and the vibrant role it plays in the life of our nation, I say we do the following:
1. Jack up our church attendance. They say Christianity is history in America? That’s too funny. BTW: Didn’t Freddy Nietzsche say God was dead and Christianity was crap also? Yeah, I’m pretty sure he did right before he went insane, and then God said Nietzsche’s dead. Go to church for righteous and rebellious reasons.
2. Vote BHO and all rancorous RINOs out of office. Yeah, it’s officially RINO season. Run RINOs.
3. Get loud and proud about God, Christ and the Christian worldview and don’t let any stupid and smarmy, sassy secularist shut you up.
