That’s What Christians Do Now Don Wildmon Founder of AFA/AFR MORE

AUGUST 1999 – In 1973, the Supreme Court said it was OK to kill unborn babies. Since then, we have killed more than the entire population of Canada. And it continues. A woman’s choice? Half of those who have died in their mothers’ wombs have been females. They didn’t have a choice. It is called abortion. 

Me? I go to church, the minister preaches, I go home. That’s what Christians do now. 

First it was in dingy, dirty theaters. Then convenience stores. Then grocery stores. Then on television. Now it is in the homes of millions via the Internet. It is called pornography. 

Me? I go to church, the minister preaches, I go home. That’s what Christians do now. 

They called it no-fault. Why should we blame anyone when something so tragic happens? Haven’t they already suffered enough? Half of the marriages in America end this way. The children suffered. The family broke down. It is called divorce. 

Me? I go to church, the minister preaches, I go home. That’s what Christians do now. 

At one time it was a perversion. We kept it secret. We secured help and hope for those who practiced it. Now it is praised. We have parades celebrating it, and elected officials give it their blessing. Now it is endowed with special privileges and protected by special laws. Even some Christian leaders and denominations praise it. It is called homosexuality.

Me? I go to church, the minister preaches, I go home. That’s what Christians do now. 

It used to be an embarrassment. A shame. Now a third of all births are to mothers who aren’t married. Two-thirds of all African-American children are born into a home without a father. The state usually pays the tab. That is why we pay our taxes, so that the government can take the place of parents. After all, government bureaucrats know much better how to raise children than parents do. It is called illegitimacy. 

Me? I go to church, the minister preaches, I go home. That’s what Christians do now. 

At one time it was wrong. But then the state decided to legalize it, promote it, and tax it. It has ripped apart families and destroyed lives. But just look at all the money the state has raised. No longer do we have to teach our children to study and work hard. Now we teach them they can get something for nothing. We spend millions encouraging people to join the fun and excitement. Just look at the big sums that people are winning. They will never have to work again! It is called gambling. 

Me? I go to church, the minister preaches, I go home. That’s what Christians do now. 

Not long ago, Christians were the good guys. But now any positive image of Christians in movies or on TV is gone. We are now depicted as the bad guys – greedy, narrow-minded hypocrites. The teacher can’t have a Bible on his desk, but he can have an issue of Playboy. We don’t have Christmas and Easter holidays – just winter break and spring break. We can’t pray in school but can use foul language. It’s called being tolerant. 

Me? I go to church, the minister preaches, I go home. That’s what Christians do now. 

Yes, all these things came to pass within 30 years. Where were the Christians? Why, they were in church. All these things are for someone else to deal with. Times have changed. Involvement has been replaced with apathy. 

But don’t blame me. I didn’t do anything. I go to church, the minister preaches, I go home. That’s what Christians do now.
