Rolling Thunder...Semper Fi...a single Marine salutes approximate 250,000 motorcycles

Religion as a Bond of Union
“The people of the city were not only united about a common citadel; they were also bound together by a common religion.  Each smaller group – like the family, the gens, etc. – retained its own particular worship; but to be part of the city it must also recognize the common deity under  whose protection the city was founded, and whose continual worship the city life was maintained.  Religion was thus the sacred bond of union which held together the various parts of the community.”  ~ From Outlines of Greek History by William C. Morey, Ph.D., D.C.L.  copyright 1903
One could make the claim that the above quote is the greatest un-learned history lesson of all time.  I don’t know how many times nor how many history books that  I ran across similar statements about the cohesion of the early city states.  The use of Dr. Morey’s quote here was simply because it predates me…but also that I have the book in my possession.
It should be noted that the sacred bond of union was one of mutually shared assimilation and not a dictate by the government for as soon as such authoritative force came upon the population then the decline of the city state soon followed; especially when that force was dominated by outside religious beliefs or no religion at all.  Most indigenous peoples have a religion that guides there every day moral compass; those that do not generally have no morals and a particular observation is that lying comes easy for there is no law written in stone to guide them…they have no conscience that disturbs the alarms that should ring when wrong dominates right.   Such secular people usually have little in common with those of established faiths…though there is some toleration but usually for political trickery intents.
So what is happening now in the once very cohesive United States?  We have the influence of an unconscionable, authoritative leader that dictates policy influenced by non Judeo-Christian beliefs (mostly Islam and Marxism) backed by gangs schooled in the art of Saul Alinsky and deceit (is that a double negative? Alinsky and deceit).  Remember, it was Judeo-Christian beliefs that were our common bond.  Let’s not forget it.  This moment in time is your part in history for another generation to learn about so let’s prolong our bond before the United States of America becomes history. ~  Norman E. Hooben  
Ps: The New World Order crowd (Carter, Clinton [x2], Bush[x 2], Pelosi, Reid, Obama) never learned the above history lesson.

Although I wore the uniform of the United States Air Force for over twenty-one years, while watching this video I was a Marine. Semper Fi!
