When government institutions support policies that prohibit the mention of Jesus they are in essence saying He is not God. Would any sane person try to stop the recognition or teaching of God if he or she knew that in the future there would be a required accounting for that behavior before the sovereign God of the Bible?
Personal observations of popular culture and attempts to denigrate things Christian, by people claiming to be Christian, indicate that there will be a lot of surprised people trying to excuse the inexcusable some day in the future.

Democratic Senators Carper and Biden signed the "Phoney Soldiers" letter smearing the reputation of a private citizen, Rush Limbaugh. Contrast the intent, honor, and courage of the original signers of the Declaration of Independence with the public dishonor of 41 sitting U.S. Senators. These 41 sitting Senators used the influence of their elected office to condone a lie, thus illustrating how ethically challenged they really are. Sadly, they lack the integrity and ethical qualities of our founding fathers who pledged their lives, fortunes, and sacred honor to advance the cause of freedom. Unfortunately for us, the only thing most of today's politicians want to advance is their own careers.
A few years ago the New Journal paper published an article dealing with evolution curricula in Delaware's government schools. According to the article Delaware was listed as one of the top ten states for promoting evolution within it's school system. The article told the experience of one teen ager who believed in Biblical creation until he participated in a couple of experiments that proved to him that evolution was possible. I wished I could have talked to that young man's teacher and asked him to define evolution. If he defined evolution as something changing over a period of time like an infant to an adult, Biblical creationists would have no argument with that. If he meant a change within a species produced by interbreeding, Biblical creationists would have no argument. If however he meant a snake that changed into a bird, or a monkey that changed into a man the Biblical creationists would part company with the evolutionist. In spite of the lack of evidence evolutionists still teach this foolish theory to children in direct opposition to physical evidence and Biblical truth. Heb 11:3 By faith we understand that the universe was formed at God's command, so that what is seen was not made out of what was visible. NIV
"A Kansas court of appeals has ruled that it's illegal for an illegal alien to enter the country, but not illegal for an illegal alien to be here if the illegal alien can illegally make it past the Border Patrol without getting caught." I am beginning to believe Americans are insane. What type of law school turns out these type of judges? What is a politician thinking who nominates these judges for the bench? Why type of citizen continues to elect politicians who make these type of appointments? Imagine someone breaking into your house, you did not see him break in but you caught him walking around in the house, you call the police, he is arrested. When he appears before the judge the judge asks wheter anyone saw him make the entry, no one did. The judge releases him. The majority of voters in the United States only have themselves to blame, we elect the people who make the appointments and we keep re-electing them. It's insane to keep doing the same thing repeatedly and expecting different results. I see no hope on the political scene without drastic changes in our voting patterns.
