Right to Worship
by

Sometimes, when I am alone, I think of what I would do if I were President. First, double the size of the armed forces. Second, double their pay. Third, pay for it with a surcharge on the incomes of the VERY rich.

But lately I have been thinking of a need even more basic. We as a nation need to be able to pray. We need to remove the constraints of courts who have wildly misunderstood the First Amendment. We need a new amendment to the Constitution which would be The Right To Worship Amendment. It would say that the right of Americans to worship as they please in public and private places shall not be abridged unless such worship poses an imminent threat to safety and public order, but that no one shall be forced to worship against his will at any time in any circumstance.

Why don’t we have that? We will never be who we can be and who we must be if we take worship of God out of our lives.
