Freedom of Religion
Religion – I believe in the freedom of religion, not the freedom from religion. Secular humanism has become the religion of our government, and it has been found lacking. It is the source of much of the cultural decay that is crippling our society and bankrupting our governments. An acknowledgement of God is the source of true wisdom and must have a place in our government, schools and agencies.
In fact, our founders understood that democracy would not and could not stand if our leaders did not have a fundamental belief in God. At the same time, they were (and we should be) careful not to force beliefs on anyone.
The right to bear arms is a clear and necessary part of our constitution that must be protected. Texas, because of its size and conservative values, is the state that must lead the effort to protect this right.
