I ran across this e-mail recently. I'll post it first, then at the end make my comments about it:
How ALL business phones SHOULD be answered!'GOOD MORNING, WELCOME TO THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA''Press '1' for English ........Press '2' to disconnect until you learn to speak English .'And remember only two defining forces have ever offered to die for you ...Jesus Christ... And the American Soldier.One died for your soul,The other for your freedom.If you agree......Keep it going
Now, to force me to answer my phone with the greeting above is quite unfair. You don't think so? What if someone told the supporters of the above e-mail to answer the phone with, "Allah Akbar". I bet their faces and necks would turn red hot!
This is not a Christian nation. Congress Shall Make NO Law respecting the establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof.
If this were a Christian nation, why do we have a President rather than a Pastor. Why do we have a Congress rather than a Congregation? Why a Constitution rather than just using the King James Bible?
That's what a real Christian nation would do. And a real Christian nation would do away with our freedoms in the process, too.
Forcing everyone to learn English is a convenience. But the world is getting smaller and the United States is a melting pot. Trace your heritage back. White people have black uncles. Black people can trace back to Ireland, West Africa and Choctaw. People of Asian decent call themselves Americans first when you might be tempted to call them Chinese-- yet they are of Japanese decent!
I bet those who want everyone to speak English or get out of the country couldn't find a bathroom if they were dropped in Germany, France, Sweden, or Mexico even!
Learn a little bit of a foreign language. You and you're children will need it 20 years from now.
Lastly, soldiers have indeed died for our freedom. So, you sure as hell have no right to impose your religious views upon me. And don't suggest I don't care about our soldiers. I don't have to voice adoration for Jesus to love this country and honor our military.
