2021-07-04 Religion Today – The U.S., the Founding Fathers, freedom versus socialism, False Claims of Systemic Racism, etc
Dr. Thomas Sowell, PhD, of the Stanford Hoover Institution, a black conservative, famously said blacks were not enslaved because they were black, but because they were available. Whites have enslaved whites. Asians have enslaved Asians. Blacks have enslaved blacks. The U.S. is not a racist country. On the contrary, based on Christian values, European Christians who emigrated to the New World, fought to end slavery in the Colonies, England and the rest of the world. By the time the U.S. Constitution was enacted, nine of the original 13 Colonies had abolished slavery, and the U.S. had made operating a slave ship a crime, subject to the death penalty. A democratic republic provides for freedom. Socialism removes freedom, puts the government in charge and takes away the incentive to work and succeed. May God bless the U.S. and help us maintain a democratic-republic.
