Conservative hero Dr. Ben Carson was warmly welcomed at the Iowa State Fair over the weekend as he made his case for American greatness. He said we must unify around the critical issue of religion and God. Dr. Carson believes Christians should never be ashamed of their faith, and it’s more important than ever that we speak out about the Almighty!

Carson reminded us that while the secular left and the ACLU is working tirelessly to remove all mentions of God, we still have references to Him in the Pledge of Allegiance, in our courtrooms, and on our money. We must not allow the secular left to win the battle for America’s soul:

“We have to stop listening to these people who tell us that we cannot talk about God, we cannot talk about our faith,” the retired neurosurgeon said.

“I wonder, do they realize that our founding document, our Declaration of Independence, talks about certain inalienable rights given to us by our Creator – aka God?” he asked.

Carson went on to note the key references to God in the pledge of allegiance, on the walls of U.S. courtrooms, and on coins and banknotes.

“So, if it’s in our founding documents, it’s in our pledge, it’s in our courts and it’s on our money, but we’re not supposed to talk about it, what in the world is that?” he said. “In medicine we call it schizophrenia, a form of craziness.”
