From the beginning, our Founders quoted Scripture, mostly because they were devout Christians, but even those who were not known to be devout---Franklin and Jefferson in particular, often made reference to the Bible---quoting Scripture.
However, in their time, there was a Christian consensus in American culture, and their Scripture citing was rooted in the belief that God would help and bless us if we properly recognized Him and His Word.
Today, the so-called religious Left is regularly misusing Scripture to authenticate non-biblical actions by quoting the Bible.
William Shakespeare wrote, "The devil can cite Scripture for his purpose."
So can liberal progressives.

The New York Times headline blared across the country and the world this weekend, "In Major Defeat For Trump, Push To Repeal Healthcare Law Fails."
Two questions have arisen from the dust of defeat:
- Should Ryan resign as Speaker?
- Can The GOP actually govern?
I would add a third: Is there a real political solution to this and other transformative challenges America faces in 2017? Or should politicians continue to, as they say, "Kick the can down the road for the next class of politicians?"

After all the smiling, smirking, and sometimes gnarly-faced reports by America's leading "journalists" that there is "no" proof that Obama wiretapped Trump---as Trump has alleged---David Nunes (R-CA), Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, is saying, "Hey, look what I found."
Jim Wallis, leader of the religious Left, relying heavily on what he read in the New York Times, is calling President Trump a "liar" and the White House a "House of Lies"---in an article written the day before the latest revelation by Chairman Nunes.
The American people are left to ask ourselves, "Who's lying now?"

Sears Holding, once the largest US retailer, is warning investors about its ability to continue as a going concern.
The Sears catalog inspired moms to buy from home, and kids to dream of what could be...for birthdays and Christmas. It defined post-WWII American consumerism.
However, decisions made---or not made in the past 10 years, have led to the near inevitable fall of this American icon.
Its eminent collapse leaves a life lesson for all of us.

A black 5th grade student has been "sold" by white kids in a lesson---in public school--- about colonization and slavery.
CBS 2 reports, "When it comes time for fifth graders to learn about the history of colonization and slavery, it's always a sensitive subject."
Of course it's sensitive---and one of the reasons for lack of healing on the subject of slavery is the misguided obsession on the part of public education to indoctrinate rather than educate.
And the dogged determination by some, including a former US President, to continue rubbing salt in the deep wounds of racism, for political reasons.
What was the teacher thinking? What was the motive?
