The Strength of the Liberty Movement Lies in Man!Submitted by AmericanFreedumb on Sun, 01/13/2013 - 22:23
I am continuously amazed here at the Daily Paul by those who shirk responsibility by relegating their responsibility for their own lives to a magic sky daddy. Here in the "liberty movement," we continually preach personal responsibility. If you want something, you earn it. We don't expect hard work to be done for us. We expect to do it ourselves.
Or, people consider themselves so powerless that all they can do is ask the invisible superhero to do things for them.
I am neither powerless, nor do I shirk my responsibility for my life.
To say that Christ is the author of the liberty movement and that without its backing we will fail is an extremely pathetic position. Do you want liberty? Work for it.
Gary Johnson's god-free campaign failed? Well, Barack Obama's god-free, pro-abortion, pro-women campaign wildly succeeded; and half of America doesn't even know whether or not he is Christian or Muslim.
If you need to seek strength in your own religion, fine. But, if you are here preaching Christianity as the way to freedom over Islam, or Atheism, or Agnosticism, or Satanism, then you don't understand freedom. Live and let live.
