We are a nation founded on Christian principles. This means we hold to a system of attitudes, beliefs, and practices that have a religious basis. John Adams once stated "Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other."

Freedom of religion is at our country's foundation and its religious principles are reflected in our founding documents, monuments and government buildings. They made our country strong, a beacon of hope for oppressed people around the world.

Any attempt to change our founding principles weakens us as a nation.

Liberal Democrats have been attacking Christianity and our nation for decades. At the 2012 Democratic National Convention, they even held a vote that removed the word "God" from their party's platform. (The language was later re-inserted.) They say that religion must have no part in government. They have been pushing to eradicate any trace of religion from the public in the name of "separation of church and state."

We no longer see the Ten Commandments in many courthouses; religious monuments have been hidden or removed from public view. Democrats have written laws taking freedoms from us and giving the government more power. Liberal judges use the flimsiest of reasons to delay or reverse any laws to the contrary.

Many Democrats claim to be "Christian," but their actions say otherwise.

Democrats and liberal judges continue to support the killing of the most innocent in our society, unborn babies. According to estimates, there have been more than 55 million babies put to death since Roe v. Wade was decided in 1973.

President Barack Obama said he wanted to "fundamentally change" our country. Liberals are slowly changing religions. They are redefining marriage and have even tried to control religious institutions. Obama's Department of Justice not only refused to defend the Defense of Marriage Act, they attacked it. (Editor's note: The U.S. Supreme Court in June found parts of the Defense of Marriage Act unconstitutional.) Obamacare is dictating changes to religions, requiring them to change their principles. This is today's Democratic Party.

Voting for these Democrats supports abortion and the fundamental changes they have imposed on our country.
