The United States "is a Christian nation." These words seem shocking today, but they were part of the 1892 Supreme Court decision in Church of the Holy Trinity v. United States. They were penned by Justice David J. Brewer as he wrote for the majority.

President Harry Truman once said, "We must never forget that this country was founded by men who came to these shores to worship God as they pleased. Catholics, Jews, and Protestants, all came here for this great purpose. They did not come here to do as they pleased — but to worship God as they pleased, and that is an important distinction."

Historically, worshiping God has not been a partisan issue in the United States. It was generally taught across this land that our nation was founded by those who sought freedom to worship as they chose and who built what we now call a Judeo-Christian heritage.

Tucker Carlson Mayor Pete's Quest To Weaponize The Bible To Justify Abortion

The Left's assault of the Christian faith is three-pronged. First, leftists seek to redefine what it means to be a Christian. Next, they seek to silence Christian voices in the arena of public discussion. Third, they want to elevate the ideas of non-Christians to change traditional thinking. Hard to believe, but let's look.
In redefining Christianity, they want to shift the emphasis from a changed life to doing what they define as societal good. Presidential candidate Mayor Pete Buttigieg (D) of South Bend, Ind. is attempting to put a new spin on the "old time religion." Kirsten Powers writes, "Does the country need an awakening of the Christian left? Presidential hopeful Pete Buttigieg thinks so." In Buttigieg's understanding of the Christian faith, since Jesus never specifically mentioned abortion, we shouldn't spend so much time on it. In his view, most of Scripture points to "defending the poor, and the immigrant, and the stranger, and the prisoner, and the outcast, and those who are left behind by the way society works." Buttigieg, as a gay man, is a staunch supporter of LGBT rights and thinks the church's view on them should change. For Mayor Pete and those who think as he does, Christianity is about not transformed lives, but rather a social gospel and agenda.
