I ran a cross a site called "The Mobile Homestead". This site sells Rving products. I don't care to provide a link because I don't want to give them the hits.
However at the very top of the main page was this quote,
"When Fascism comes to America, it will come wrapped in the flag carrying a cross."
Number one, what does this have to do with Rving products?
and number second two, we all know the connotation of this quote
"Beware of patriotic Christians"
So I decided to e-mail the site owner. I asked her the same thing, "What does this have to do with Rving? I also told her as a Christian I found this quote offensive. I also asked her to explain what it meant to her before I did business with them.
This was her answer;
This quote describes the way all totalitarian regimes start and only an under-educated knee jerk reactionary person wouldn't know that ,so were happy to tell you to take your business elsewhere.
The Mobile Homestead
Pretty typical angry name calling leftist answer
Just be to clear lets see what the leftist see as "Facism"
This answer was provided by a "Joe T" on Yahoo answers and was choosen as the "best" answer to what, "When Fascism comes to America, it will come wrapped in the flag carrying a cross." means
And according to "Joe T "and obviously the owner of this site, fascism has already come to America
Of course. It's already happening
1. Determined to move to one-party politics
2. Harassment and vilification of political opponents
3. Evoking God as guider of their destiny
4. Punishment of the "work-shy" (welfare), retarded, the aged, and homosexuals
5. Censorship of art forms as "degenerate" and "pornographic"
6. Marked and clandestine leanings toward closet homosexuality within party leaders
7. leanings toward racial purity and abolishing immigration
8. virulently anti-abortion
9. militarily aggressive
10. debt-driven, frantic economy
11. Feelings of having a superior form of government
12. hatred of liberalism in all forms
So evidently these beliefs are'facism"
1. Being pro-life
2. Not viewing homosexuality as "normal"
3. Being patriotic and believing that a Democratic Republic IS a superior form of goverment
4. Defending your country by being offensive
5. Not embracing liberalism
6. Being able to distinguish porn and being able to have your own defintion of "art"
7. Not encouraging the "work shy"
8. Against illegal immigration
9. And the worst of all, being a Christian and speaking as one as a political candidate
So my fellow Americans, those of you who aren't liberals and subscribe to the above list, are "Nazis"
Ya know its good to be hit in the face with the reality of how true liberals think. It helps us conservatives become stronger in our reserve.
So in a weird way, I am thankful to a Millie Shaw, the owner of The Mobile Homestead

"We have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion. Avarice, ambition, revenge, or gallantry, would break the strongest cords of our Constitution as a whale goes through a net. Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other." --October 11, 1798 John Adams
"Without Religion this World would be Something not fit to be mentioned in polite Company, I mean Hell." [John Adams to Thomas Jefferson, April 19, 1817]
Benjamin Franklin: Portrait of Ben Franklin
“ God governs in the affairs of man. And if a sparrow cannot fall to the ground without his notice, is it probable that an empire can rise without His aid? We have been assured in the Sacred Writings that except the Lord build the house, they labor in vain that build it. I firmly believe this. I also believe that, without His concurring aid, we shall succeed in this political building no better than the builders of Babel” –Constitutional Convention of 1787 original manuscript of this speech
• Hamilton began work with the Rev. James Bayard to form the Christian Constitutional Society to help spread over the world the two things which Hamilton said made America great:
(2) a Constitution formed under Christianity.
“The Christian Constitutional Society, its object is first: The support of the Christian religion. Second: The support of the United States.”
On July 12, 1804 at his death, Hamilton said, “I have a tender reliance on the mercy of the Almighty, through the merits of the Lord Jesus Christ. I am a sinner. I look to Him for mercy; pray for me.”
"For my own part, I sincerely esteem it [the Constitution] a system which without the finger of God, never could have been suggested and agreed upon by such a diversity of interests." [1787 after the Constitutional Convention]
"Orator of the Revolution."
• This is all the inheritance I can give my dear family. The religion of Christ can give them one which will make them rich indeed.”
—The Last Will and Testament of Patrick Henry
“It cannot be emphasized too clearly and too often that this nation was founded, not by religionists, but by Christians; not on religion, but on the gospel of Jesus Christ. For this very reason, peoples of other faiths have been afforded asylum, prosperity, and freedom of worship here.” [May 1765 Speech to the House of Burgesses]
The name of American, which belongs to you, in your national capacity, must always exalt the just pride of Patriotism, more than any appellation derived from local discriminations. With slight shades of difference, you have the same religion" ...and later: "...reason and experience both forbid us to expect, that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principle..."
Signer of the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution

"Christianity is part of the common law"
[Sources: James Wilson, Course of Lectures [vol 3, p.122]; and quoted in Updegraph v. The Commonwealth, 11 Serg, & R. 393, 403 (1824).]
“We have staked the whole future of American civilization, not upon the power of government, far from it. We’ve staked the future of all our political institutions upon our capacity…to sustain ourselves according to the Ten Commandments of God.” [1778 to the General Assembly of the State of Virginia James Madison
The three branches of the U.S. Government: Judicial, Legislative, Executive •
At the Constitutional Convention of 1787, James Madison proposed the plan to divide the central government into three branches. He discovered this model of government from the Perfect Governor, as he read Isaiah 33:22;
“For the LORD is our judge,
the LORD is our lawgiver,
the LORD is our king;
He will save us.”
