Prattville Dragoons Chaplain's Column for June 2013

From the Dragoons Camp Dispatch newsletter, Chaplain Tom Snowden's column for June 2013:

Chaplain’s Column:  America Has Changed
            I believe there are those who are in leadership in America who have set as their goal to destroy America. It seems they have achieved every goal they set out to win, short of disarming the American people. The primary objective is to change America.
            God was banned from the public arena. The Founding Fathers warned us that only an informed and moral people could sustain a constitutional republic. Only a moral people can know the difference between right and wrong.  As we look at our present culture, wrong has become right and right has become wrong.
            We lost the public school system. Once God left the schools, the liberals took over the education of our young. They have captured our present and future generations. They are churning out students that are low-information voters. And since God was kicked out of our schools, it was easy for liberal teachers to sell many of our children a menu of selfish immorality. You see, without God we have no compass. We lost the media. We once could depend on them for fair and unbiased reporting.
            We have always relied on informed voters with integrity and moral fiber. We no longer have enough voters capable of making prudent, wise decisions. It seems that over half our electorate is now composed of people who vote for their own selfish interests.  
            So where does that leave us? Is there any hope at all for America? Some believe that Thomas Jefferson was correct when he said, “The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants. It is its natural manure.” I sure hope our Almighty God will answer our prayers soon and show us how to bring this country back before it is too late.
            Let’s pray for our country that we will wake up from our evil ways and gain back the Old USA that had some moral fiber, politicians that made sense, told the truth, and placed God first.
            I would like to ask our membership to keep praying for those on our Dragoon prayer list.
