Would you allow a doctor, no matter his credentials, to infuse you with pig blood?

My mother, herself a trained registered nurse, received a pig valve in her heart in her 80s, and it apparently extended her life to almost 91.

But pig blood? In her veins, mixing her human blood with that of a pig?

Never! And no doctor worthy of his certificate would ever suggest it.

Why? Because human beings are created different from other animal forms. While we can accept blood from other humans, we dare not corrupt or pollute our human blood with that of any other life form. Our DNA forbids it, and it’s not negotiable. Messing with our created state is deadly.

What is America’s DNA?

“We hold these truths to be self evident, that all men are created equal. That they are endowed by their creator with certain inalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.”
Thomas Jefferson, in our Declaration of Independence
Catch that word, “creator?” Our founders knew — and publicly proclaimed — that our rights, and life itself, flowed directly from the power and benevolence of our creator! And that a democratic republic, unprecedented in human history, must be comprised of, and governed by, individuals who would diligently endorse and obey the rules laid out by that creator for the continuance of that free society.

There was no other way to perpetuate our new liberties, including equality for all citizens. That way was based completely on the Bible, and on the precepts God had revealed unmistakably in his book.

Without the Bible, we would never have had our Constitution.

The signers of the Constitution knew that full well. Has anybody ever informed you that virtually all the 55 writers and signers of the United States Constitution of 1787 were members of Christian denominations?

Twenty-nine were Anglicans, 16 to 18 were Calvinists, two were Methodists, two Lutherans, two Roman Catholics, one lapsed Quaker and sometimes Anglican. Ben Franklin, who attended every kind of Christian worship, called for daily prayer during the Constitutional Convention, and contributed to all the denominations.

Some revisionists today want you to believe otherwise. When I talked about this with Bill Maher, a cynical unbeliever, he sent me an LA Times article declaring that all the framers were Deists or outright atheists, not Christians.

I responded, drawing his attention to the byline, attributing the distortion of facts to a member of an atheist organization, who deliberately lied, ignoring the historically recorded truth.

I also sent him a quote from John Jay, appointed by President George Washington as the first chief justice of the Supreme Court, who helped form the Constitution itself:

Providence (God) has given to our people the choice of their rulers,
And it is the duty, as well as the privilege and interest of our Christian nation to select and prefer Christians for their rulers.”

Why? Because it was Christians, guided by the Judeo-Christian Bible, who created the profound document guaranteeing liberty and equality to all, including atheists. They were — and are — the veins through which the blood of freedom flows!

And the blood of freedom is the word and will of God.

So what’s my point? I hope it’s obvious. Just as your body, and mine, is created to run on one fuel — and only one — so our America was created to operate on only one set of principles. They are our very DNA. And those principles are found only in the Bible. Yes, the Bible.

“Separation of church and state?” Take the “church,” the institution that promulgates Bible principles, out of the “state” — and you will not have the “state” called America. It will be something else (and some today seem to prefer it) but it will not — could not — be the America that became the greatest nation in history.

Our Supreme Court is faced right now with its greatest challenge, ever. By June, concerning the very definition of marriage, nine human beings will decide whether we remain “one nation under God,” governed by the God who created us and them — or whether we take on a new fuel, the treacherous, fickle, amoral “popular opinion,” a synthetic mixture of poll results, ignorance of unchangeable Biblical principle, and outright hedonistic rebellion.

Already this court has ruled against equality, dictating that innocent babies, still in their mothers’ wombs, have less rights than their mothers. And in so doing, they’ve ruled against life itself. At least for the nearly 60 million babies aborted since their infamous decision in 1973.

That leaves liberty.

Thomas Jefferson, the “separation of church and state” guy, spoke to that:

“God who gave us life gave us liberty. And can the liberties of a nation be thought secure when we have removed their only firm basis, a conviction in the minds of the people that these liberties are of the Gift of God? That they are not to be violated but with His wrath? Indeed, I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just; that his justice cannot sleep forever.”
Jefferson’s words on his Memorial in Washington, D.C.
If you have any knowledge at all of our founding fathers’ intentions and guiding principles can you seriously imagine their considering marriage — even for a second — as anything but the union of a man and a woman?

Were they stupid, or naïve, or ignorant about human inclinations?

Of course not. But they were very clear on God’s intentions, detailed in Genesis 2:
“For this cause a man shall leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they shall become one flesh.
And these men knew the dangers of polluting the blood of freedom.

John Adams warned, “Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.”

Ben Franklin added: “Only a moral and virtuous people are capable of freedom. The more corrupt and vicious a society becomes, the more it has need of masters.”

And as true now as then, our concepts of morality and virtue come directly from God, through his Bible.

That’s undeniable. His love is universal, for all of us, but his blessings are promised only to those who honor and obey his word. When a society decides to substitute its collective will for his, it changes its spiritual and moral DNA — like pumping pig’s blood into human veins.

People, we must pray, and pray very earnestly, for the nine human beings who will soon decide the future of America. Only if we remain “one nation under God” will we long survive.
