It’s Easter and if you listen closely, you can hear the silence from the hypocrites who say religion has no place in public life while enjoying another religiously motivated holiday.
They’re the ones who say religion only causes harm, or that religion has been a cancer on society but in fact, our western civilization is built upon religious traditions.
There is a Judeo-Christian tradition underpinning western civilization, specifically, a Christian one.
From medicine to law, to science-our society owes a great deal to men and women of faith.
Watch as I look at all the good things in society that were built upon the foundations set in place by religion, by churches, by people of faith.
Some of us know this, others don’t even though the evidence is all around us. But too many don’t know what they’re looking at, including the symbolism around us at Easter.
The traditions around Easter weren’t created by a candy company or a greeting card company, they came from people of faith as a way to express themselves, to teach.
To you and yours, I wish you a happy and blessed Easter. He has risen, truly he has risen.
