Governor Bradford, Plymouth, MA, and the True Foundations of America

My Original Subject

Here’s a picture I shot 3 hours ago in Plymouth, MA. It’s of Governor Bradford. The writing on it stands as a reminder of the original intent for the Plymouth Colony, and some might say, for America.
Prayers were prayed back then, that affect and strengthen our resolve today. May the God of Heaven look down on America today, and mercifully rescue us from those who are working so hard to pervert our nation.
On the plaque:

“Lastly (and which was not least) a great hope & inward zeal they had of laying some good foundation (or at least to make some way thereunto) for ye propagating & advancing ye Gospel of ye Kingdom of Christ in those remote parts of ye world: Yea, though they should be but even as stepping stones unto others for ye performing of so great a work.”
– William Bradford,
of Plymouth Plantation

An unexpected meeting

huge_monument_01
At the exact moment I came out of my car to snap these shots, a stranger came up to capture the same image. As we remarked about the meaning of the message it became clear we were on the same wavelength. His name was Irv, he was from upstate New York near lake George, and his wife and her sister were descended directly from the original Mayflower pilgrims. He asked if I knew about the National Monument to the Forefathers a few blocks away. Although I grew up 45 minutes away, I had never heard of it. He described the location, saying Kirk Cameron had filmed it for a documentary called, “Monumental,” and saying it was massive in size, and had many plaques telling the motives and desires of this nation’s founders.
Irv and I had never met, and were alone in front of a statue of a pilgrim on a bitter November day, united in our motives to rescue our country, and honor our Lord. “A man plans his way, but the Lord directs his steps.” Glory to God! The Resistance is mustering.
I thanked my brother patriot and raced over for one more stop on this bleak November afternoon.
NATIONAL MONUMENT TO THE FOREFATHERS Erected by a Grateful People in Remembrance of Their Sacrifices and Sufferings for the Cause of Civil and Religious Liberty
As I walked around and photographed the enormous monument on this dark day, I was impressed at the determination of this statue’s builders to make it clear to some future, forgetful generation of Americans that this country is founded on Biblical virtues of the Judeo Christian world view. And I was here, the recipient of this message in the critical watershed moment of history the message was intended for.
Two plaques on the monument read:

“NATIONAL MONUMENT TO THE FOREFATHERS
Erected by a Grateful People in Remembrance of Their Sacrifices and Sufferings for the Cause of Civil and Religious Liberty” 
“Thus out of small beginnings greater things have been produced by HIS hand that made all things of nothing and gives being to all things that are, and as one small candle may light a thousand, so the light here kindled hath shone unto many, yea in some sort to our whole nation; let the glorious name of JEHOVAH have all the praise.”
– Governor William Bradford

Kirk Cameron Blasted by GLAAD Over Gay Marriage Comments
TMZ:  Kirk Cameron’s comments to Piers Morgan on gay marriage are not sitting well with the folks at GLAAD … who think the former “Growing Pains” star “sounds even more dated than his 1980s TV character.”
Cameron said during last night’s show that he does not support gay marriage, and when it comes to homosexuality in general … he said, “I think that it’s … unnatural. I think that it’s detrimental, and ultimately destructive to so many of the foundations of civilization.”
Herndon Graddick, Senior Director of Programs at GLAAD, tells TMZ he feels Cameron, a Born Again Christian, is “out of step with a vast majority of Americans, particularly people of faith who believe that their gay and lesbian brothers and sisters should be loved and accepted based on their character and not condemned because of their sexual orientation.”
A GLAAD spokesman says they plan on monitoring Cameron’s media bookings and various acting gigs to ensure “the news and entertainment industry is aware of his outrageous anti-gay views.”

I’m sick and tired of bleeding heart liberals calling themselves the tolerant ones when, in fact, they have no tolerance if you don’t agree with them. Why isn’t Kirk allowed to express his personal Christian beliefs without being condemned?  Why must he get in line with the “vast majority of Americans”? 
You want to be gay?  Have at it.  I don’t care what you do in the privacy of your home.  But that doesn’t mean I, as a Christian, have to change my belief that marriage is between a man and a woman. 
Can you imagine the backlash if Christians decided to monitor GLAAD’s activities to bring attention to their outrageous anti-Christian views?
