Country in midst of moral decline

In my lifetime, I have seen a great moral decline of this country. When I was in school in the 1950s and early 1960s, the school teacher would read from the Bible; we would pray and say the Pledge of Allegiance.

We now have a guy (Barack Obama) who is stating that this is no longer a Christian nation. Because of the color of his skin and his smooth talking the American people voted him in as president. Since he has become president, he has completely ignored the Constitution of the United States, tried to change this country to a socialist country, lied to the American people, and is trying to force everyone (even Christian organizations) to pay for abortions and contraceptives for everyone else (even young kids in school). Now he is trying to force homosexual marriage on the whole nation; even trying to force chaplains in the military to perform gay marriages.

By the end of this year, he will have increased the national debt to almost $6 trillion. We American people need to look at a person’s lifestyle and his moral values according to the Bible before we vote for anyone; not because of his skin color or how smoothly he can talk. This county can’t afford four more years of Obama. He says he is a Christian, but his lifestyle and his direction of this country completely violate everything that is in the Bible.

Jesus said in Matthew 22:37, “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with your entire mind.” I think the American people have forgotten this; now you can see where we are.
