‘NERO FIDDLED WHILE ROME BURNED’


Remember this scene?

President Bush Attending National Day Of Prayer Service

Yes, President Bush, we greatly miss you.

This from Faith and Freedom Network blog posted April 16, 2010

Judge Barbara Crab ruled yesterday that the law specifying the annual establishment of a national day of prayer, “goes beyond ‘mere’ acknowledgment of religion because it’s sole purpose is to encourage all citizens to engage in prayer, an inherently religious exercise that serves no secular function.”

As you know, the 2010 National Day of Prayer is scheduled in May. Certainly people of faith do not need a Presidential proclamation in order to pray, however this speaks much about the forces that seek to destroy this country from within.

Traditionally, our country has turned to national prayer in times of difficulty, as lately as September 11, 2001. At a time when our country is facing difficulties on many fronts, one would hope we would have the wisdom to once again turn to a national expression of prayer.

I am reminded that it has been said that ” NERO fiddled while Rome burned.”

While it has also been said that Nero fiddling while Rome burned was merely folklore, Suetonius and Cassius Dio said that Nero actually sang, “Sack of IIium” in stage costume while the city burned.

“Sack of IIium” is a lost epic of ancient Greek literature which told the story of the Trojan War in epic verse. The work begins with the Trojans discussing what to do with the wooden Trojan Horse that was left behind after the massacre.

Patrick Henry once said, “When people forget God, tyrants forge their chains.”

First, President Obama canceled the National Prayer Breakfast started by President George W. Bush and now Judge Crab follows suit by ruling National Day of Prayer unconstitutional.  These are not coincidences.  There are forces who want to destroy our country from within.

WE NEED SPIRITUAL REBIRTH IN AMERICA!
God help us
