Are We Truly a Nation Under God?
Victor R. Claveau
There seems to be a growing
concern on the part of many Americans that perhaps the destruction of the World
Trade Center in New York City was a prophetic warning from on High. Why did God
lift his mantle of protection from the United States of America on 9-11-01 and
will He do so again?
The answer, I believe, is simple
and it is about time we take our collective heads out of the sand and realize
that if we continue along the path we have been following since Roe Vs. Wade, we
will, most likely, be faced with far more destruction and loss of life. The
death of the innocent is an affront to the sovereignty of God. “You
should not give any of your children to devote them by fire to Molech, and so profane the
your God: I am the Lord (Lev.
When will we learn that we cannot spit in the face of God without His coming to anger? Scripture clearly demonstrates that man cannot tempt God without experiencing His ultimate retribution. Must we experience the fate of Israel, as described in 1 & 2 Chronicles and 1 & 2 Kings? Must history repeat itself and our nation be destroyed and we made slaves before we abase ourselves and repent before the Almighty? His words are clear for all to read:
have set before you life and death, blessing and curse; therefore choose life,
that you and your descendants may live” (Deut. 30:19).
Approximately two out of three
black babies are killed before they ever see the light of day. This is
tantamount to racial genocide. Where is the black moral leadership in this
country? Why is it that most Black Americans vote for the pro-abortion ticket,
when in reality, they are signing their own racial death warrants?
Hispanics fare slightly better,
“only” a third of the babies are murdered, and most of these come from
mothers with Catholic backgrounds. Whites, as usual, have it best
of all as “only” 25% are slaughtered and end up as what is euphemistically
called “medical waste.”
The majority of our state and
federal representatives, duly elected by the will of the American people, have
supported and defended the wanton destruction of over 42,000,000 innocent
victims on the altar of abortion. Have we become so inured, that the number has
lost significance or is it that it defies comprehension? How can we, as a
society, justify the wanton destruction of even one innocent life, never mind
42,000,000? Abortion, in many cases federally funded, has become the most common
medical procedure performed in the United States.
Our Heavenly Father and Our
Blessed Mother must be terribly saddened by our general complacency. What is
staying God’s hand against us?
Christianity was and is the
bedrock of American society. Our founding Fathers recognized that a nation
without ideals rooted in Christianity would not stand; this concept was true
then and it is true today.
Yet, it has been estimated that
as many as half the United States population have no religious affiliation or
rarely darken the door of any place of worship. Most Americans claim to be
Christians, yet in reality, many support euthanasia,
embryonic stemcell research, and the
primary scourges of our nation, pornography and abortion.
The America many of us grew up
in is long gone. The moral order of our nation has collapsed. Today, half of all
marriages end in divorce. 5.5 million couples live together without the benefit
of marital commitment. Deviant sexuality is flaunted in gay-pride parades and
pornography (an 18 billion dollar per year industry located primarily in the San
Fernando Valley of California) is sold openly. Sixty-two percent of Internet
sites are dedicated to pornography.
Although kidnapping and child
abuse, are illegal, the law protects the selling of videotapes depicting such
abuse. This means that if your child was abducted and abused in a pornographic
movie, the movie could be purchased and viewed by your next-door neighbor and
you would have no legal recourse.
state and federal prison populations are overflowing and the criminal justice
system is overloaded. Abortion, usury, divorce, drug abuse, child abuse,
gang-warfare, drive-by shootings, murder, theft, white-collar crime, racial and
religious hatred, euthanasia, etc., are all indications of the failure of our
moral and political leadership and the “reformed” gospel that presupposes
everyone will go to heaven
, no matter what choices he or she
makes, as long as a verbal declaration of allegiance to Christ has been made;
the gospel that Christians can make individual evil choices yet retain a proper
is a monster of so frightful mien,
to be hated needs but to be seen;
seen too oft, familiar with her face,
first endure, then pity, then embrace.”
Alexander Pope (1688-1744)

time will come for us to be answerable before God for the slaughter of the
innocents, the embracing of homosexual acts as natural, and the prolific spread
of pornography. The day may come when God will lift His protective mantle from
this nation in a more dramatic fashion.
were as the stars of heaven for multitude, you shall be left few in number;
because you did not obey the voice of the LORD your God”
We must set our sights higher
and demand that our religious and political leaders speak out about the moral
bankruptcy of our country. It has gone so far that certain pro-abortion
politicians have even been allowed to pander for Catholic votes from church
Our Holy Father, Pope John Paul
II, summed it up be saying: “A nation that kills
its children is a nation without hope.”
Our nation is dying.
us pray that there is still time to turn things around. Speak out about these
issues to your friends and neighbors. We've
got to redouble our efforts; be vocal,
send letters, start petitions, and provide financial aid to pro-life groups.
Most importantly, pray and fast as certain demons can only be defeated by these
methods (Mk. 9:29). Your efforts will assist the Holy Spirit in cleansing
us of our self-inflicted wounds.
does not take a majority to prevail ... but rather an irate, tireless minority,
keen on setting brushfires of freedom in the minds of men."

Our Jewish brethren have a
saying: “When you save one life, you save the
world.” Let us endeavor to save America, one child at a time.
