THE HANDWRITING IS ON THE WALL
A political script is being written on the wall and the majority of Americans are reading it.
It wasn’t conservatives who fought the battle that brought down the Great Wall of Jericho.
It wasn’t a conservative who said, “Let him who is without sin cast the first stone.”
It wasn’t a conservative who rebuked the church leaders and developed new inclusive policies for the Christian Church.
It wasn’t conservatives who fought for religious freedom within the original thirteen American colonies.
It wasn’t a conservative who wrote, “All men are created equal.”
It wasn’t conservatives who fought for women’s right to vote.
It wasn’t conservatives who fought to end slavery on American soil.
It wasn’t conservatives who passed the Social Security Act of 1935.
It wasn’t conservatives who enacted the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
It wasn’t conservatives who passed the Fourteenth Amendment giving all citizens equal rights under the law.
It wasn’t conservatives who fought to give all children a quality education by integrating public schools.
It wasn’t conservatives who have fought for over two hundred years to gain equal rights for all minorities including LGBT citizens.
It was not conservatives on the Supreme Court that passed the Marriage Equality Act.
It has not been conservatives who have fought to provide free meals for hungry children.
It has not been conservatives who have fought for the rights of women to receive equal pay for equal work.
It has not been conservatives who have fought for increased pay raises for America workers.
It has not been conservatives who have fought to provide universal health care for all Americans.
Everything that has made America a better place for humans has been accomplished through a progressive agenda.
If you believe that conservative principles have brought progress to the United States, you need to do one thing. Forget about praying for others, forget about being down on your knees, but stand in front of a mirror and look yourself directly in the eyes and pray for yourself, because your mental capacity is in need of prayer.
The agenda that is standing in the way of American progress is the political system. All other systems are on go. Every recent public opinion poll proves that the majority of Americans are ready to move on. Americans have seen the harm caused by discrimination and are now ready for a better day. Americans realize that same-sex marriage has caused absolutely no harm to anyone and now is the time to move forward. An overwhelming majority of Americans have learned that there are benefits to medical marijuana and Americans are ready for nationwide legalization.
The conservative Southern Bible Belt will soon be a thing of the past. Although there are still a few grandmas and grandpas who are trying to teach their grandchildren to hold on to the principals of the Confederate Southland, their grandchildren are rejecting the outdated policies. In a matter of a few years, institutions such as the Southern Baptist Church will disappear if they do not change. They must change leadership or change policies. Today, membership in conservative churches is on a rapid decline. The only Christian organizations gaining members are those taking progressive steps to meet the needs of a modern society.
It was only a few years ago that the esteemed godfather of the Republican Party spoke the profound words, “Mr. Gorbachev, TEAR DOWN THIS WALL.” Now the leader of the Republican Party has developed a rallying cry, “BUILD THAT WALL.” History has not been kind to the building of walls, and it is difficult to believe that in November the majority of Americans will allow themselves to be confined behind an IRON CURTAIN. In all probability Americans will reject isolationist policies. The globalization process will demand that America continue to be a part of the global society.
The majority of Americans are demanding real change. President Obama, through a multitude of difficulties, laid the foundation for major change in America. Bernie Sanders listened to the voices of young Americans and has been instrumental in including many changes in the political party platform. If elected president, it is believed that Hillary Clinton will continue the progress. For every drop of blood that has been shed, for every body part that has been sacrificed, and for every emotion that has been shattered on the battlefield, the hope for a better America is just around the corner. From the dark shadows of America’s busy streets, from the lowlands of the ghettos, or from the backside of nowhere, a leader will emerge. This leader will be able to use millions of one-dollar donations to lead Americans into the Promised Land.
God is tired of discrimination being disguised as a righteous robe of dignity. God is tired of the love of his son being turned into hate. Rest assured—the handwriting is on the wall.
