America has the most beautiful national anthem, inspiring, emotional music and words, but how irrelevant the words are in the present politically correct society of modern America. The land of the so called free and the home of the brave seems to belong to another age.

The news reports of how Christians are harassed and prevented from declaring their faith in public, appear endless. A student was told that if he referred to God in his graduation address his microphone would be switched off. There have been similar stories of restrictions on Christians in various educational establishments.

The display of the Ten Commandments are banned from many public places as is the Cross, even one placed in remembrance of veterans, and a baker is threatened with legal action if he refused to bake a wedding cake for a homosexual couple on account of his religious beliefs. A highly respected business man is told he cannot supply goods to a charity because he made a religious remark to display his faith. There seems to be a plethora of left wing anti-Christian judges backing all this up.

The President could surely give more support to Christians in the same way he tried to enforce employers to provide free contraception for women employees, for abortion rights and same sex marriage.

I have much fondness for America and have admiration for some of their fine Churches which I watch on television. I have been disappointed at some of the Southern Baptist churches at their support for same sex marriage; I thought there was one denomination holding fast to Scripture.
