High court did not serve citizens well

— America, land of the free, home of the brave,  land that I love. The highest court in the land did not serve its citizens well when the court voted 5 to 4 to overrule the will of the people of California in the decision to strike down proposition 8. The Supreme Court elevated its authority above the authority of the supreme ruler of the universe, God. Marriage between a man and woman was established and blessed by God.

In God we trust. Really. It is no longer acceptable to mention Jesus Christ, God’s only son in certain public places, because that may be considered offensive. Our children are no longer allowed to pray in schools, as that may be considered offensive also. Millions of our innocent unborn babies have been killed. Abortion is offensive.

In God we trust. Really. Wake up America! The handwriting is on the wall. “You are weighed in the balances and found wanting” — Daniel 5:27. God judged His chosen people, Israel. He will judge our nation also.

“Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord” — Psalm 3 3: 12.
