Independence Day is approaching and, in light of President Obama’s recent statements praising Islam and rejecting Americaâ€™s heritage as a Christian nation, Judge Roy Moore explains in his WorldNetDaily column why we as a nation have always depended upon the Christian God and were founded on Christian principles. We have never declared our â€œindependenceâ€ from the God of our fathers, and the actions and words of Congress, past presidents, and even the U.S. Supreme Court make that evident.
For instance, our sixth president, John Quincy Adams, gave a speech in the town of Newburyport, Mass. (http://books NULL.google NULL.com/books?id=5h1CAAAAIAAJ) on July 4, 1837, in which he noted that America loves celebrating Independence Day almost as much as celebrating Jesus Christ at Christmas:
â€œWhy is it that, next to the birth day of the Saviour of the World, your most joyous and most venerated festival returns on this day? . . . Is it not that, in the chain of human events, the birthday of the nation is indissolubly linked with the birth-day of the Saviour? That it forms a leading event in the progress of the gospel dispensation? Is it not that the Declaration of Independence first organized the social compact on the foundation of the Redeemer’s mission upon earth? That it laid the corner stone of human government upon the first precepts of Christianity . . . ?â€ (http://www NULL.worldnetdaily NULL.com/index NULL.php?fa=PAGE NULL.view&pageId=101979)
