Curse On America?

Anne Graham Loitz, Billy Graham's daughter, was interviewed on CBS's “The Early Show” on the Thursday morning after the September 11, 2002 terrorist attacks. She was asked by Jane Clayson: “How could God let something like this happen?” Here is her answer:
I believe that God is deeply saddened by this, just as we are, but for years we've been telling God to get out of our schools, to get out of our government, and to get out of our lives. And being the gentleman that He is, I believe that He has calmly backed out. How can we expect God to give us His blessing and His protection if we demand that He leave us alone?
Let's see, I think it started when Madeline Murray O'Hare (she was murdered, her body was found recently) complained she didn't want any prayer in our schools, and we said, OK.
Then, someone said you better not read the Bible in school... the Bible that says thou shalt not kill, thou shalt not steal, and love your neighbor as yourself. And we said, OK.
Then, Dr. Benjamin Spock said we shouldn't spank our children when they misbehave because their little personalities would be warped and we might damage their self-esteem. (Dr. Spock's own grandson commit suicide. Dr. Spock's perverse teachings killed upwards of 50,000 babies). And we said, an expert should know what he's talking about, so we said OK.
Then, someone said teachers and principals better not discipline our children when they misbehave. And the school administrators said no faculty member in this school better touch a student when they misbehave because we don't want any bad publicity, and we surely don't want to be sued (There's a big difference between disciplining and touching, beating, smacking, humiliating, kicking, etc.) And we said, OK.
Then someone said, let's let our daughters have abortions if they want, and they won't even have to tell their parents. And we said, OK.
Then some wise school-board member said, since boys will be boys and they're going to do it anyway, let's give our sons all the condoms they want, so they can have all the fun they desire, and we won't have to tell their parents they got them at school. And we said, OK.
Then some of our top elected officials said it doesn't matter what we do in private as long as we do our jobs. And agreeing with them, we said it doesn't matter to me what anyone, including the President, does in private as long as I have a job and the economy is good.
And then the entertainment industry said, let's make TV shows and movies that promote profanity, violence, and illicit sex. And let's record music that encourages rape, drugs, murder, suicide, and satanic themes. And we said it's just entertainment, it has no adverse effect, and nobody takes it seriously anyway, so go right ahead.
Now we're asking ourselves why our children have no conscience, why they don't know right from wrong, and why it doesn't bother them to kill strangers, their classmates, and themselves. Probably, if we think about it long and hard enough, we can figure it out. I think it has a great deal to do with “WE REAP WHAT WE SOW.” ~Anne Graham Loitz
Funny how simple it is for people to trash God and then wonder why the world's going to Hell. Funny how we believe what the newspapers say, but question what the Bible says.
Funny how you can send 'jokes' through e-mail and they spread like wildfire but when you start sending messages regarding the Lord, people think twice about sharing.
Funny how lewd, crude, vulgar and obscene articles pass freely through cyberspace, but public discussion of God is suppressed in the school and workplace.
Are you laughing?
Funny how when you share this webpage, you will not send it to many on your address list because you're not sure what they believe, or what they WILL think of you for sending it. Funny how we can be more worried about what other people think of us than what God thinks of us.
I love America; but I don't like what I see happening to our nation! I believe God wants us as Christians to obey the laws of our land (Romans 13:1-7). I am NOT anti-government. However, I am unalterably opposed to the government's corruption and the stealing of American taxpayer's money. OUR government does what they do in OUR name, with OUR money and with the power that WE give them. We have every right to ask questions, demand answers and enforce justice. It is our Bill of Rights.
I do NOT hate anyone, I simply hate what God hates... EVIL. If the shoe fits, wear it. If something on this website offends you, then so be it. I do not say this to be unkind, but because you need to know the truth! America is going to hell. We are losing our manufacturing jobs in America! We are losing our rights to privacy! We are losing our homes! Do you think this is all a big coincidence? To the same degree that the American people continue to walk into the dark depths of wickedness, to that same degree America is headed for imminent destruction!
Remember that one can move to Italy, but you will never be an Italian; you can move to Mexico, but you'll never be a Mexican; but you can move to America and become an American. What a blessing! It is a shame what we are doing to this once great nation. Our love for sin as a people has caused God to remove His hand of blessing from our country. We have allowed Satan to put a noose around our necks. We have given the Devil a big stick to hit us with.
