Today is the United States 241st birthday and it’s so much more than cookouts, frisbee, swimming and boating! John Quincy Adams, our nation’s sixth President, said on July 4th, 1837, “Is it not that, in the chain of human events, the birthday of the nation is indissolubly linked with the birthday of the Savior?” Just image that!
As we were preparing for and enjoying the 239th birthday of our nation, homosexual activists in Philadelphia were busy celebrating their recent victory in furthering their efforts to force all Americans to celebrate their lifestyle. In the process, they also took liberties in the way they retold our history.
Above the names of the 56 signers of the Declaration of Independence are these words “”For the support of this Declaration, with firm Reliance on the Protection of the divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other, our Lives, our Fortunes, and our sacred Honor.”
Communication 238 years ago was not what it is today — no cell phone, internet, Twitter, Facebook or email. The following information is based on tradition and cannot readily be verified, but I can’t help but think these stories are based on fact. By signing the Declaration of Independence , they instantly became traitors to the British Crown — their government.
