President Kennedy, who said that "no religious body should seek to impose its will" also urged religious leaders to state their views and give their commitment when the public debate involved ethical issues. In drawing the line between imposed will and essential witness, they keep church and state separate, and at the same time we recognize that city of should speak to the civic duties of men and women.
Religions values can not be excluded from every public issue, but not every public issue involves religious value.
William Jefferson Clinton. Oklahoma bombing memorial prayer service address had said:
"But for so many of you they were also neighbor and friends. You saw them at church or the PTA meetings, at the civic clubs, at the ball park. You know them in ways that all the rest of America could not. And to all members of the families here present who have suffered loss, though we hare your grief, your pain is unimaginable, and we know that. We can not undo it. That is God's work. To all my fellow Americans beyond this hall, I say, one thing we owe those who have sacrificed is the duty to purge ourselves of the dark forces which gave rise to this evil. They are forces that threaten our common peace, our freedom, our way of life. Let us teach our children that the Cod of comfort is also the God of righteousness: Those who trouble their own house will inherit the wind. Justice will prevail".
I understand it that we must teach our children about God, and I thin k not only children but all who are around us that God of comfort is also the God of honesty, goodness, friendly. And I think that Americans believe God, that they don't forget about Him as William Jefferson Clinton had said that they had to teach children a bout God, and than they had to teach children a bout God, and than justice will prevail.
I know that most of Americans trust Cod, pray, ask Him for help, go to church. I can prove it Most of American people in this book in their oratory spoke about God and of the end of every article each of them thanked Gad. For example. Ronald Reagan: putting American back to work: "God bless you and thank you".
Mary Fisher: a Whisper of Aids: "God bless the children, and God bless us all" etc.
Robert F. Kennedy had told his favorite poem. This poem is about God.: "Even in our sleep, pain which cannot forget.
Falls drop by drop upon the heart,
Until, in our own despair,
Against our will,
Through the awful grace of God".
2.2. Love of Americans to their native country
Americans love their county very much and they are proud of their country and they can do all to their country to defend it.
I can prove it. Martin Luther King: Beyond Vietnam - a Time to Break silence in world, can well lead the way in this revolution of values. A nation that continues year after year to spend more money on military defense than on programs of social uplift is approaching spiritual death"
People of America love their country so that they had dreams often only about their country, their better life in it and even song which they would sing.
Martin Luther King, JR.: I Have a Dream: - "I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal".
- "I have a dream that one day on the red hills of Georgia, the sons of former slaves and the sons of former slave owners will de able to sit down together at the table of brotherhood."
- "I have a dream that one day the state of Mississippi? A state sweltering with heat of injustice, sweltering with the heat of oppression, will be transformed into an oasis of freedom and justice"
- "With this faith, we will be able to hew out of the mountain of despair a stone of hope. With this faith, we will be able to trans form the jangling discords of our nation into a beautiful symphony of brotherhood. With this faith, we will be able to work together, to pray together, to struggle together, to go to jail together, to stand up for freedom together, knowing that we will be free one day".
2.3. "Americans are vitally concerned in their defense of freedom"
And it is really true. They love their country and they also love freedom of their country - America.
I can prove it by words of Franklin Delano Roosevelt: The Four Freedoms" Franklin Delano Roosevelt said: "We Americans are vitally concerned in your defense of freedom. We are putting forth our energies, our resources, and our organizing powers to give you the strength to regain and maintain a free world. We shall send you in ever - increasing numbers, ships, planes, tanks, guns.
I understand it that Americans are people who love their country, love freedom, love each other and together they can do all to defend freedom, their native country.
Also Franklin Roosevelt said: " The nation takes great satisfaction and much strength from the things which have been to make its people conscious of their individual stake in the preservation of democratic life in America. Those things have toughened the fiber of our people, have renewed their faith and strengthened their devotion to the institutions we make ready to protect".
As we see, Americans ready to protect their native country in any time. And to protect they country hey must renew their faith that they can it to do.
"No realistic American expect from a dictator's peace international generosity, or return or true independence, or world disarmament, or freedom of expression, or freedom of religion - or even good business. Such a peace would bring no security for us or for our neighbors. Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty safety". In times like these it is immature-and, incidentally, untrue - for anybody to brag that an unprepared America, single - handed and with one had tied behind its back can hold off the whole world. This nation has placed its destiny in the hands and heads and hearts of its millions of free men and women, and its faith in freedom under the guidance of God. Freedom
