Trump, Johnson helping nations protect identity
I have been reading a lot about President Donald Trump and England's Boris Johnson and their common fight for the preservation of national identity in their respective countries. It was on my recent visit to London that I came to understand why national identity was of such importance to England and America.
As I gazed upon the wondrous architecture of old London I heard a man say, "The architecture of today is much less spiritual." I knew exactly what he meant. Those glorious churches and palaces in England were the God-inspired works of spiritual men. The globalists and secularists could never build such impressive and inspired by God architecture reaching to the heavens.
Today in London and here in America, there are those who desire a nonspiritual God-free environment. Our modern architecture and our modern nation now reflect a post-Christian influence. We live in uninspired dwellings populated by uninspired people.
I remember talking with an anti-Brexit demonstrator while in London. She rejected nationalism and embraced globalism. She believed globalism to be the panacea for the ills of all nations. No god and no national identity will be the prescription that brings all nations together under the god of materialism was her view.
President Donald Trump and Mr. Johnson seem to have a more realistic view of the world. They know that the absence of God and country in America and in England does not mean the absence of God and country in all the rest of the world.
China, Russia and many other centuries-old political territories hold dear their national philosophies, histories and culture. They have a national identity and are willing to fight and to kill if that is what it takes to maintain and continue the building of their home.
I am now certain that if the secularist are successful in removing America's and England's National Christian-heritage identity they will have assisted the atheist, Islamist and socialist nations in removing from this planet all of Christian-inspired western civilization.
