American blacks were not free from 1864. They didn't have freedom in any real measure until the 1960s and 1970s, and there still are discriminatory attitudes (like at Denny's Restaurant in recent years?). Society resists change toward love and brotherhood. Christianity must continue to teach its own to be better ambassadors and better examples, and through this example and witness, persuade people that we do have a better way to offer.

One of my primary outreaches for Christianity is politics. I affiliate with the only political party that believes in God's supremacy, that looks to the Bible for guidance in policy formulation and defending those policies. The party's purpose is not to impose its members' religion on the country, but to offer leadership of obedience and integrity by imposing our beliefs on ourselves and on our conduct in the administration of the country and treatment of our six point seven billion neighbours, 30 million of them right here in Canada. I have run several times for election to Parliament on behalf of the party.

I neither desire to be harsh or quarrelsome. I admit that I'm not at all prepared enough, because until January 2009, I had never completely read the Bible. I finally remedied that in the middle of January 2009 with a "bible in one year" reading guide. However, I haven't been able to memorize more than tiny smatterings. I am not going to be ashamed of my faith. It will sustain me when the world tries to twist or destroy me. If I am accused of imposing my morals on others, I will reply that I'm not: that I'm imposing God's morals... on me. On me! God's morals, not mine. On me! Not others! Git it?!

My politics. Just covered it in a way, but to reiterate. I am socially conservative, with strong adherence to the beliefs that God's morality is the only hope people have to live a decent life and a healthy love and sex life with one person and help promote a safe and peaceful community. I support the right of law-abiding citizens to own their own firearms, including handguns, and to carry them as they see fit. And I oppose Canada's firearm regime - how come the gun control laws don't prevent mass murders that still happen? By that silly standard, we need to register every knife, axe, sledgehammer, ice pick, lawn mower, bottle of bleach, brick, two-by-four.

But I am economically a moderate. We must be ready to help out the less fortunate, but if people are allowed to be prosperous without the penalty of progressive taxation (higher income, higher tax rate), and if they are taught properly by God's word, we are generous with our own and help people with free will offerings of what we have. Then, there is no need for government-run housing, social payments and such.
