I am honored to be here speaking today before such a respected and well known organization. I will keep my comments brief, but as this is Columbus Day Weekend, I thought it most appropriate today to talk about Christopher Columbus.
Way back in 1492, there was no cable, no video games, no Ipods. What people used to get through their day was faith. It was this faith that lead Christopher Columbus to discover America so that we might all worship God as we saw fit. Columbus was a great hero, but I wonder what he'd say if he was alive today.
Would Columbus recognize America today. How would he react to seeing a country he worked so hard to discover becoming completely overrun with illegal aliens? What would he feel about Americans having to learn Spanish just to be able to communicate? If Columbus knew these things would he even bother to sail across the Ocean to come here?
In the name of Columbus, we must take back our country. We can begin doing it in November by voting for politicians who have zero tolerance for the tide of illegal immigration that threatens us so. Let's return this country to the way it should be. Let's make this country one that Christopher Columbus would recognize.
Make no mistake about it. The topic of Columbus Day has become controversial because of a radical atheistic movement to strike Christ from Columbus Day, but we will not; we cannot let them win. Did you know that Columbus Day Weekend is the most holy weekend in the entire Jewish calendar? I heard it on the way over here. Jews remember just what Columbus did for them and we should do the same.
God watches what we do and even little symbols mean a lot. I listened earlier as Douglas Fischer pointed out that singing God Bless America at ballgames had protected us from terrorism. There are no facts to back this up, but my faith tells me it's true, just as my faith tells me that telling people God Bless You when they sneeze has protected us from another Smallpox outbreak.
The tiny things we do have big consequences. Gay marriage threatens our country unlike any other time in our history. Homosexuals point to young children of 2 or 3 who are clearly gay to show that homosexuality isn't a choice, but I say that homosexuality is to dangerous a choice to be left to 2 and 3 year olds. We must move now to forever ban marriage. I am in awe of the state of Alabama who has created a Constitutional Amendment banning gay marriage, but has not infringed on anyone's time honored right in that state to marry their 14 year old first cousin. We must show that same courage. God bless you and God bless the United States of America.
