For nearly four centuries the oath taking process in America consisted of raising your right hand and placing your left hand on the Bible, then saying, “…so help me God.” The oath taking process appears in four separate places of U.S. Constitution and has its origin in the Bible. James Madison, signer of the Constitution stated: “An oath – the strongest of religious ties.” When Congress takes their oath of office “…so help me God,” it’s a reminder they will answer directly to God for their legislation.
Founding Father and President John Adams was a statesman. He declared, “The duration of future punishments terrifies me,” knowing he would have to stand before God for his policy making. The Congressional oath of office is as follows: “I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter, “…so help me God” (emphasis mine).
In February, the Democrats (really Communists) in Congress removed “so help me God” from the U.S. House of Representatives oath taking process! House Republican Conference Chairwoman Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) told Fox News,“they really have become the party of Karl Marx.” In August, the DNC adopted a “religiously unaffiliated” resolution replacing the worship of God with the worship of state. The DNC resolution declares “that morals, values, and patriotism are not unique to any particular religion, and are not necessarily reliant on having a religious worldview at all.”
Interesting, in George Washington’s Farewell Address he basically turns the communist’s party resolution on its head. He stated, “Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim the tribute of patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness.” Washington is clear, their resolution does not acknowledge “religion and morality” as our nation’s foundations, therefore denying our founders biblical worldview for America. Furthermore, they can not be considered patriots, but domestic enemies of the Constitution. Washington continued in his Farewell Address with a warning for America. “Where is the security for property if, for reputation, for life, if the sense of religious obligation desert the oaths?”
Once again, God’s reputation is at stake and my fellow republicans, the media, and those citizens who represent our nation’s foundations of “religion and morality” remain silent! “Is there not a cause?!” If elected to Congress, I will defend our Godly heritage against the Communist Democrats and all those domestic enemies who want to destroy our Constitution!
