Happy Independence Day



I was originally going to post a brief comment on the so-called Fairness Doctrine that liberals in Congress are trying to resurrect. As it's the Fourth of July holiday, I think I'll defer that until tomorrow.

Until then, have a wonderful holiday, and reflect on the freedom we have enjoyed in this country -- freedom at a level seldom enjoyed anywhere else in the world. Reflect as well on the Author of that freedom, and the price that this country will pay in the long run for turning its back on Him. Other civilizations throughout history have ended or fallen, and what makes us think that America is immune from such a fate?

One more thing. Freedom lost is very, very difficult to get back without bloodshed. If -- God forbid -- we finally lose our freedom here, what sacrifices are we willing to make to set things to rights?

It's a good question.

Happy 4th as well, Joel, as I remember...our freedom is in Christ, not in this country, nor in this world!
