I'm going to do it. I'm going to speak out against not having God humanly represented at the 9/11 commemoration ceremony. I know there are arguments either way, and I've read them, and some of my friends support the decision not to have any religious representation at the ceremony.
My argument in favor of it is different. My argument is not that they should bring God into it, my argument is that they should recognize His presence, Which is already there. I'm not talking about some wishy-washy famous preacher or religious writer who won't mention the Name of Jesus Christ. I'm talking about having someone with enough nerve to actually mention Jesus Christ, acknowledge His presence in this place and thank Him for His mercy and beg for His further protection on our country.
Shying away from God is a huge victory for the terrorists. That's what they've wanted all along! Mayor Bloomberg is giving them exactly what they want! The terrorists can't tolerate the Name of Jesus Christ, so they pull the blinders down on people like the Mayor and his cabinet and make them feel like they are actually serving people better by not acknowledging God. I have news for the Mayor; he can't leave God out no matter how he tries.
Let's not disguise our cowardice in a blanket of shame and call it tolerance.
God was there on 9/11. He will be there at Ground Zero at the commemoration ceremony. He is there already and it's such a good, good thing for us all that He is so incredibly merciful.
