A Cry From The Heartland
President George W. Bush
The White House
1600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW
Washington, DC 20500
Dear President Bush,
As someone who has been behind your efforts to protect America from
the threat of terror, I write to you about a grave danger which
threatens from within.
Mr. President, I am asking you from my heart to speak out for
Americans like me who believe our nation cannot survive if we abandon
God and moral principle in our public life.
Mr. President, I am dismayed when state courts assault the historic
and irreplaceable role of marriage. My heart is grieved when a decent
and honest judge cannot publicly state the moral foundations for all
our laws and liberties by displaying the Ten Commandments. I am
disturbed when elitist judges further attack the roots of freedom by
denying school children the right to pledge allegiance to our flag.
And with our nation stained by the sin of abortion on demand, like
Thomas Jefferson, "I tremble for my country when I reflect that
God is just; that His justice cannot sleep forever."
And we have, as Lincoln declared 140 years ago,…forgotten God. We
have forgotten the gracious Hand which preserved us in peace, and
multiplied and enriched and strengthened us; and we have vainly
imagined, in the deceitfulness of our hearts, that all these blessings
were produced by some superior wisdom and virtue of our own.
Intoxicated with unbroken success, we have become too self-sufficient
to feel the necessity of redeeming and preserving grace, too proud to
pray to the God that made us!" Mr. Lincoln went on to say
"It behooves us then to humble ourselves before the offended
Power, to confess our national sins and to pray for clemency and
Mr. President, once again our nation needs to be reminded of these
Mr. President, the time for political calculation is past. Your
conscience alone must tell you it is time to speak the truth to the
American people. And if you do, I truly believe many Americans who are
moving to the sidelines of political involvement will joyfully rally
to you. Please USE THE "BULLY PULPIT" OF THE PRESIDENCY to
speak out eloquently; calling our nation to repentance for our great
multitudes of sins against God. Indeed we are on the slippery slope of
self-destruction. Please, Mr. Bush, it is time to echo President
Lincoln and plead to the nation - both as a whole and as individuals -
it is time to repent and restore our right relationship with God
