An advertisement during the last Democratic debate featuring Ronald Reagan Jr. called for all Americans to support the Freedom from Religion foundation. While the advertisement originally aired in 2014, its re-emergence highlights the ultimate division transpiring throughout our country.
In the current state of political and cultural polarization, the American people are unable to discern the truth from the lies. Since the election of President Trump the mainstream media has perpetrated hoaxes, manufactured phony stories, and misinformed millions.
The liberal media’s manipulation stems from the abandonment of absolute truth. News pundits, commentators, and lifelong politicians on the Left refuse to accept and embrace our country’s Judeo Christian foundation. They have tirelessly worked to whitewash the truth through the rewriting of history, removal of monuments, and denigration of Conservative and Christian leaders. They are moved by their feelings, their pocketbooks, and their unified hatred of God.
The message and placement of the atheist advertisement during the Democratic debate could not have better represented the beliefs currently held by the Left.
Ronald Reagan Jr. began the advertisement explaining his concern with “the intrusions of religion into our secular government.” Then by invoking our Founding Fathers, he asked for your contributions to continue “working to keep state and church separate.” At the end of the advertisement he mocked Christians nationwide by signing off as a “lifelong atheist, not afraid of burning in hell.”
The advertisement was purposely placed on CNN during a Democratic debate because the Left’s ideals have become more and more antithetical to the message of Christ.
The middle ground between political parties has quickly diminished due to the Left’s abandonment of absolute truth. What was once a difference of political opinion and governmental policy, has turned into a dichotomy of worldviews. The Left and Right are guided by two very different compasses. Without a fundamental agreement on direction, our country will continue to grow further and further apart.
Perhaps Ronald Reagan Jr. would be willing to accept his own father’s warning about the absence of Christ in our country.
“Without God, there is no virtue, because there’s no prompting of the conscience. Without God, we’re mired in the material, that flat world that tells us only what the senses perceive. Without God, there is a coarsening of the society. And without God, democracy will not and cannot long endure. If we ever forget that we’re one nation under God, then we will be a nation gone under.”
