It is once again time for an inauguration, and the country's national commitment will be seen where ever you turn, unless of course you happen to be one of those who voted for the other guy.
Every four years, the United States goes through its election process, where the politicians sling dirt at each other, the country has its integrity called into question, and a new president is elected. Then losers get to have their noses rubbed in the mud, as January rolls around and the winner gets to swear that they will follow the laws of the constitution for the next 4 years.
The US congress has much of the same changes, although the time frame will differ somewhat. The difference between the two major parties has become so clear that we could end up asking ourselves, how long will we be able to live side by side, in a nation that is so clearly divided.
You don't have to be living in an evangelical environment to realize that much of the problems that we face is religious, and the opposition to including it in our lives. Then again, I guess it would all boil down to who you ask.
The political sword that we have been wielding, is missing many heads today, but what really makes this whole scenario that much more difficult to swallow, is when the faith you have is tested, and then thrown away like used bath water.
Maybe the country is not aware of just how much damage it keeps doing to our religious integrity, when it systematically whittles it down, or maybe we just don't care. One thing is for certain, if you plan on avoiding religious topics altogether, please don't choose to use it when it is to your convenience.
