Dumb Ox

Today is Independence Day. As we celebrate our country's 233rd birthday, we remember the founding generation who pledged their lives and their sacred honor to freedom in the face of great odds and greater hardships.

They knew well that freedom included religious expression, the right to worship God openly and the ability to express those beliefs in the public square. Despite the recent assertions by some, the United States, by any measure, is a Christian nation, founded on Judeo-Christian principles including equality, liberty, freedom of expression, religion, the press, assembly, and social tolerance on a scale never before seen.

On this day, let us remember that true freedom means being able to love God.
