I've had some secular fundamentalists tell me that this doesn't make the document or the nation Christian in any sense since the dating formula was simply customary. It’s what everybody did.

I respond by saying this makes the case even worse for them, since they are admitting that it was so common for the Founders to think of Jesus as Lord and His life as the turning point of all history that they had not a moment's hesitation in putting His name in our foundational document, expressing their personal allegiance to Him, and dating it from the year of His birth.

Bottom line: the Founders’ Constitution permits States to prohibit the building of mosques. For the safety and security of the American people, perhaps the time for them to start doing it is now.

Quote# 113917

The Founders gave to the States unilateral authority to regulate religious expression as they saw fit. While I am certainly not advocating for it, this means that, constitutionally, States still today can have established churches if they choose, as ten of them did at the time of the founding. And it also means that States can prohibit the building of mosques if they choose.

Quote# 113902

[On the Southern Poverty Law Center classifying the Family Research Council and American Family Association as hate groups:]

The plain truth is that we at the FRC and AFA don't hate a living soul. We love homosexuals enough to tell them the truth about the physical and spiritual dangers of the homosexual lifestyle. We want something better for them than the darkness and disease associated with homosexual behavior. We want them to come out of the darkness into the light of the gospel of Christ. We are for the homosexual and so must be against the normalization and promotion of homosexuality.

Note the SPLC is no longer accusing FRC and AFA of hate or violence based on some objective standard. They have simply made a purely subjective assessment that our beliefs about human sexuality and our defense of natural marriage are so offensive to them that we must become the target of the unlimited resources of the federal government.

Do we disagree with the homosexual lobby about homosexuality? Of course. Do we hate them? Absolutely not. Do we advocate violence against them? Never have, never will. We are simply determined to tell the moral, spiritual and physical truth about nonnormative sexual behavior.

Bottom line: disagreement is not hatred, and the truth is not hate speech.

Quote# 113877

Yesterday, Donald Trump told Fox Business Channel that he would “ absolutely” support shutting down mosques in America in order to fight ISIS, so naturally American Family Radio’s Bryan Fischer came to the Republican presidential candidate’s defense today, repeating his frequent assertion that the First Amendment applies only to Christians.

“So the question is, can you close down a mosque in the United States of America given the First Amendment and its guarantee of the free exercise of religion,” Fischer said, “and the answer is that you absolutely can. Yes, Donald, yes, Virginia, we can constitutionally close down mosques in the United States of America.”

This is, he explained, because “the only religious tradition that is being explicitly and expressly protected in the First Amendment is the free exercise of the Christian religion.”

Quote# 113422

On the immigration issue, many Christians are rightly fond of quoting the scriptural passages that urge us to be compassionate and kind to aliens. [...] But what these same Christians fail to do is take note of what God said was to happen to immigrants after they arrived in their host country. It is clear that his spiritual standard was assimilation, and that assimilation was not just cultural but spiritual as well.


What this would mean in America's case is quite simple. We would communicate to the world that strangers are welcome here on one condition: that they be willing to adopt our God, our Judeo-Christian heritage, our Christian holidays, our Christian moral values, our Christian heroes and our Christian history.

Can this be done? Of course it can. The Constitution gives unilateral authority to Congress to establish whatever rules for immigration and naturalization it chooses. Certainly these biblically-based ideas will be considered controversial, but given the fact that three billion Muslims have immigrated to the United States over the past decade and have shown no interest in fully assimilating themselves to our culture, now is the time for the conversation to begin in earnest.

Speaking only for myself, I suggest it's time, both from a biblical as well as a practical and national security standpoint, to reconsider Islamic immigration into the United States. [...] Bottom line: it's time not only for America to embrace immigrants but for immigrants to embrace America.

Quote# 113297

On his radio program today, Bryan Fischer once again made his case that America's immigration policy ought to require all immigrants to convert to Christianity and adopt Christian morals, holidays, and heroes.

"Strangers are welcome here in the United States under one condition," he explained, "that they be willing to assimilate completely into American culture. That they be willing to adopt our God, that they be willing to adopt our Judeo-Christian heritage ... adopt our Christian holidays ... If you come to America, you understand that we are a Christian country and therefore we observe Christian holidays; don't expect us to make room for your holidays. We're expecting you to accommodate yourself to our standards, our traditions, and our holidays."

"We will expect you to adopt our Christian moral values," he continued. "No place, no room for Sharia law in the United States. You'll be welcome here, we'll open our arms to you, we'll open our hearts to you, we'll open our communities to you, but we will expect you to adopt our cultural and Christian moral standards. We will expect you to adopt our Christian heroes and we will expect you to adopt our Christian history."

Quote# 113074

Kim Davis is Rosa Parks

Judicial tyrants in black robes have been stripping civil liberties from Christians for decades. But what was once a gentle and almost imperceptible erosion has turned now into a full-scale avalanche. The latest victim to be buried under a pile of legalistic debris is Kim Davis.

She is the county clerk in Rowan County, Kentucky, who has refused, for reasons of conscience and Christian principle, to issue licenses for sodomy-based marriages. She is not only morally right, she is legally and constitutionally right, since there is no law that compels her or even authorizes her to issue such licenses. (There is a Supreme Court ruling, to be sure, but that ruling is nothing more than a sheer, naked exercise of raw judicial power which ignores the Constitution altogether.)

So as I write, Kim Davis is in jail. She has been imprisoned in America for the crime of being a Christian.


Kim Davis is our Rosa Parks. Now it must be noted that Mrs. Davis, is not, like Mrs. Parks, being punished for civil disobedience, but rather for an act of brazen and bold civil obedience. In Mrs. Davis' favor is the simple and manifest truth that she is fulfilling the oath she took to uphold the Constitution of the United States and the Constitution of the state of Kentucky.

The Constitution of the United States is utterly silent on the subject of marriage and homosexuality, which means under the 10th Amendment of the Founders' Constitution the issue is left for the states to decide. And the state of Kentucky decided the issue by elevating protection for man-woman marriage to its state constitution in 2004 with 75% of the vote. Mrs. Davis is just doing the job she took an oath to do, by refusing to issue licenses which, under Kentucky law and the federal constitution, she has no legal authority to grant.

So Kim Davis languishes in jail in our day as Rosa Parks did in hers.

Quote# 113008

And you will notice the Founders compounded the problem for Christophobes by identifying the year not just as the year of “the Lord,” but the year of “our Lord,” meaning that all 55 Framers went on record to declare collectively that Jesus Christ was their Lord and Master.

Proof that this dating formula was not just an afterthought but a conscious, deliberate decision comes from the fact that the Founders not only dated the Constitution from the year of Christ’s birth but also from the date on which we declared our independence. We declared our independence in July of 1776 AD, and the Constitution was approved by Congress in September of 1787.

The complete formula for dating the Constitution reads this way: “…done in Convention…in the Year of our Lord one thousand seven hundred and Eighty seven and of the Independence of the United States of America the Twelfth.”

Thus the Founders dated the Constitution, the supreme legal document in American history, from two moments of vast historical significance: the birth of Jesus Christ and the Declaration of Independence. In fact, it is no exaggeration to say that, in the eyes of the Founders, these two dates were the most important dates in American history.

I’ve had some secular fundamentalists tell me that this doesn’t make the document or the nation Christian in any sense since the dating formula was simply customary. It’s what everybody did.

I respond by saying this makes the case even worse for them, since they are admitting that it was so common for the Founders to think of Jesus as Lord and his life as the turning point of all history that they had not a moment’s hesitation in putting his name in our foundational document, expressing their personal allegiance to him, and dating it from the year of his birth.

Every time you date a check, or pick up a newspaper, or check the calendar on your smartphone, you are bearing silent witness to the Christian origins of our country, as well as to the enormous impact of Jesus Christ on world history. The history of the world, in the eyes of the Founders, is literally divided into two eras: the era before the birth of Christ and the era after his light came into the world.

Bottom line: America is a Christian nation. every calendar in the world proves it.

Two places in the world where you can go to jail for being a Christian: Iran and the United States.
