    Broken Arrow, Oklahoma School officials remove "God Bless America" signs
    from schools in fear that someone might be offended.
    Channel 12 News in Long Island, New York, orders flags removed from the
    newsroom and red, white, and blue ribbons removed from the lapels of
    reporters. Why? Management did not want to appear biased and felt that our
    nations flag might give the appearance that "they lean one way or another".
    Berkeley, California bans U.S. Flags from being displayed on city fire
    trucks because they didn't want to offend anyone in the community.
    In an "act of tolerance" the head of the public library at Florida Gulf
    Coast University ordered all "Proud to be an American" signs removed so as
    to not offend international students.
    I, for one, am quite disturbed by these actions of so-called American
    citizens; and I am tired of this nation worrying about whether or not we are
    offending some individual or their culture.
    Since the terrorist attacks on September 11, we have experienced a surge in
    patriotism by the majority of Americans. However, the dust from the attacks
    had barely settled in New York and Washington D.C. when the "politically
    correct" crowd began complaining about the possibility that our patriotism
    was offending others.
    I am not against immigration, nor do I hold a grudge against anyone who is
    seeking a better life by coming to America. In fact, our country's
    population is almost entirely comprised of descendants of immigrants;
    however, there are a few things that those who have recently come to our
    country, and apparently some other Americans, need to understand.
    First of all, it is not our responsibility to continually try not to
    offend you in any way. This idea of America being a multi-cultural
    community has served only to dilute our sovereignty and our national
    identity. As Americans, we have our own culture, our own society, our
    own language, and our own lifestyle. This culture, called the
    "American Way" has been developed over centuries of struggles,
    trials, and victories by millions of men and women who have sought
    freedom. Our forefathers fought, bled, and died at places such as
    Bunker Hill, Antietam, San Juan, Iwo Jima, Normandy, Korea, Vietnam,
    We speak English, not Spanish, Arabic, Chinese, Japanese,Russian, or any
    other language. Therefore, if you wish to become part of our society - learn
    our language!
    "In God We Trust" is our national motto. This is not some off-the-wall,
    Christian, Right Wing, political slogan - it is our national motto. It is
    engraved in stone in the House of Representatives in our Capitol and it is
    printed on our currency. We adopted this motto because Christian men and
    women, on Christian principles, founded this nation; and this is clearly
    documented throughout our history. If it is appropriate for our motto to be
    inscribed in the halls of our highest level of Government, then it is
    certainly appropriate to display it on the walls of our schools.
    God is in our pledge, our National Anthem, nearly every patriotic song, and
    in our founding documents. We honor His birth, death, and resurrection as
    holidays, and we turn to Him in prayer in times of crisis. If God offends
    you, then I suggest you consider another part of the world as your new home,
    because God is part of our culture and we are proudto have Him.
    We are proud of our heritage and those who have so honorably defended our
    freedoms. We celebrate Independence Day, Memorial Day, Veterans Day, and
    Flag Day. We have parades, picnics, and barbecues where we proudly wave our
    flag. As an American, I have the right to wave my flag, sing my national
    anthem, quote my national motto, and cite my pledge whenever and wherever I
    choose. If the Stars and Stripes offend you, or you don't like Uncle Sam,
    then you should seriously consider a move to another part of this planet.
    The American culture is our way of life, our heritage, and we are
    proud of it. We are happy with our culture and have no
    desire to change, and we really don't care how you did things where you came
    from. We are Americans, like it or not, this is our country, our land, and
    our lifestyle.
    Our First Amendment gives every citizen the right to express his opinion
    about our government, culture, or society, and we will allow you every
    opportunity to do so. But once you are done complaining, whining, and
    griping about our flag, our pledge, our national motto, or our way of life,
    I highly encourage you take advantage of one other great American freedom,
    the right to leave.

    And I would further add...
    It cannot be emphasized too strongly or too often that this great nation was founded, not by religionists, but by Christians; not on religions, but on the Gospel of Jesus Christ. For this very reason peoples of other faiths have been afforded asylum, prosperity, and freedom of worship here. Patrick Henry 1765
