The following comes from a President of the United Nations:
"I am going home America — farewell.
"For seventeen years I have enjoyed your hospitality, visited every one of your 50 states. I can say I know you well.
"I admire and love America. It is my second home.
"What I have to say now in parting is both a tribute and a warning: Never forget, Americans, that yours is a spiritual country.
"Yes, I know that you are a practical people. Like others, I have marveled at your factories, your skyscrapers and your arsenals.
"But underlying everything else is the fact that America began as a God-loving, God-fearing, God-worshipping people, knowing that there is a spark of the Divine in each one of us. It is the respect for dignity of the human spirit which makes America invincible. May it always endure.
"And so I say again inparting, thank you, America, and farewell. May God keep you always — and may you always keep God."
Shocking, isn't it, that someone associated with the United Nations could ever make such a proclamation?
Oh, I forgot to tell you, these are the words of the former president of the U.N., former Philippino delegate to the U.N. and former Ambassador to the U.S., Carlos Romulo. The words above were spoken in 1962 — just as the United States was discovering the so-called separation of church and state; just as the Supreme Court was ordering God out of schools; just as the cultural revolution of the '60s was about to explode.
Good thing we know better now. Good thing we didn't listen to Mr. Romulo and "always keep God." I mean, look how much better off our nation is today. Lots more abortion, lots more divorce, lots more out-of-wedlock births, lots more crime, lots more greed, lots more poverty, lots more of all those things that make America "progressive"! Good thing we don't see the divine spark in each one of us — or at least not in the unborn.
God bless America Amerika.
