A Return to Values: A Congressional Candidate's dream

Written By Jason Preston

On September 25th, the Satanic (1) temple gathered with over 300 people on the steps of the Utah state Capitol, (2) claiming abortion should be protected as a religious right in the church of Satan. Pro-Life Utah, (3) and Utah Patriots (4) held a counter pro-life rally reminding people that the constitution protects all people’s rights to life liberty and property including the voiceless. Jason Preston, (5) a congressional candidate for Utah’s 3rd district, spoke at the rally.

We don’t have an abortion problem in this country any more than we have a gun problem. We have a family problem. The breakdown of the family is at the root of our social breakdowns. 

The constitution was written for a moral and religious people. We must stop focusing on other people and focus on the enemy within. 

This country and constitution will not be saved by legislation or politicians it must (first) be saved in our homes. We must put our lives in order, and then focus on raising a generation that can restore the light of liberty to this country.

You see everybody worships. 

We worship God, or we worship the State

Either we recognize our rights to life liberty and property come from God, and we created government to serve us, and protect those God given rights, or we worship the state and petition the state as the giver and taker of life liberty and property. 

It’s human nature to look at the church of Satan over there and call them the bad guys, and us the good guys. 

Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn (6) said:

“If only it were all so simple! If only there were evil people somewhere insidiously committing evil deeds, and it were necessary only to separate them from the rest of us and destroy them. But the line dividing good and evil cuts through the heart of every human being.”

The key to this fight is focusing on battling our own vices, our own demons, and becoming leaders in our homes, communities, and countries.
