Without God, Moral Authority Comes From…Where?

Judeo-Christians learn from the Bible that we’re not supposed to kill, lie, steal and do all the “really bad” things in life.

Every religion has versions of these rules–some more extreme than others, as we’ve learned from the brutal, senseless mass-murders of September 11, 2001 and 2012.

So based on this—the fact that God decides what is “right” and “wrong” in life—I have to ask the Democrat Party: If you’d gotten your way and had been able to take God out of your party platform, where would your moral authority have come from?

From an early age, children learn how to manipulate people and situations where clear-cut rules aren’t firmly established. Almost every student of every grade level knows how to get around homework when a substitute teacher seems even slightly confused about her lesson plans.

Without rules, there’s chaos. Without laws, man is lawless. Without a moral authority—the “father figure” who defines what is right and wrong in life—where do man’s boundaries come from?

Based on what I’ve seen within the Democrat Party—and okay, for that matter among many career politicians on both sides of the aisle—one of the biggest challenges is to stay “grounded” and not become so powerful and corrupted that they forget who they actually work for. Left unchecked, many politicians would simply float away into fat-cat cushy politician mode, taking their large paychecks, extorting money from lobbyists and taking advantages of all the perks and bribes they are constantly offered.

Power tends to do that to people in all walks of life—but none more so than in the political world.

To prove this point, and just off the top of my head, some of the fat-cat politicians who have been caught cheating, lying, embezzling in the past few years are Charlie Wrangle, Diane Feinstein, Maxine Waters, Anthony Weiner, and of course one of THE sleaziest American presidents ever, Bill Clinton who (literally) desecrated the Oval Office.

And of course there are more. A LOT more.

Had these people—these crooks, liars and thieves—not had God in the mix, could they possibly have been even worse than they already were?

For that matter, without any rules about “right and wrong”, do ANY of us stand a chance in this world?

Lucky for the Democrats at the DNC—led by another intensely skeezy politician L.A. Mayor Tony Vallar—after three tries they decided that they would allow God to remain within their party.


All I know is I really REALLY hope God doesn’t give up on the rest of the world based on the travesty was the DNC. I also hope he knows that for every person who booed Him, there are many more of us who aren’t arrogant enough to think we can get along without Him.

Sigh, again.
