I started reading with great anticipation the article, “What Makes America American?” However, I was left scratching my head when I finished because the article failed to address the reason why this topic is even on Americans’ radar screens. We have a president who declared, in June 2007, “Whatever we once were, we’re no longer a Christian nation.”
The article seemed more focused on how Lutherans were slighted in the PBS documentary. I’m more concerned why the body of Christ, in general, is being slighted, both in our media and in the highest office of our nation, while we as Christians fail to boldly proclaim the biblical principles on which our nation was founded. We cannot sit silently by while history is being rewritten about our Christian founders, and I’m deeply disappointed The Lutheran Witness missed this opportunity to highlight this blatant revisionism of our Lord’s hand in our nation’s history.
