Last night General John Allen spoke at the DNC to chants of “No More War” and Democrats turned their backs on a decorated war hero who respected them enough to not only serve and protect, but to appear at their convention to try to get their candidate elected.
Do you wonder why those who turned their backs on a hero or chanted during the speech of Gen. John Allen blame them for war? Why are the ones who defend us against militants trying to kill us blamed for war or disrespected? Neither of them have authority to declare war. Presidents and Congress do that. Hillary voted to go into Iraq, not John Allen. Obama sent troops to Afghanistan, as did Bush, but not John Allen. Bush wasn’t in Philadelphia. Clinton and Obama were.
These are Americans who have turned on those who risk their lives to protect America! A result of this kind of thinking has led to another police officer being gunned down last night in San Diego. He was doing his job.
If Americans do not want or appreciate those who protect us, do we deserve protection?
I fear that we have some very painful lessons in the near future. It makes me sad for our children who are the real victims. The people who do not respect those who serve or protect us on earth are the same people who do not honor our Creator. I say this because He teaches:
Let every person be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those that exist have been instituted by God. 2 Therefore whoever resists the authorities resists what God has appointed, and those who resist will incur judgment. Romans 13:1-2 ESV
He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the LORD, “He is my refuge and my fortress; My God, in Him I will trust.” Surely He shall deliver you from the snare of the fowler and from the perilous pestilence. He shall cover you with His feathers, And under His wings you shall take refuge; His truth shall be your shield and buckler”
Psalm 91:1-4 (NKJV)
