Here’s The Official Catalogue Of Sins, From The Family Research Council

  must memorize immediately

Did you pray like the dickens yesterday, on the National Day of Prayer that Barack Obama hates so much? Yeah, we forgot too. But they say certain corners of Hell have been successfully gentrified in recent decades, so there’s always that. Anyway, there’s another prayer day, maybe, on May 23, and here’s the official Catalogue of Sins (PDF) that Jesus wrote on his conservative Acer PC, via the Family Research Council. (“Lifting someone’s luggage” is missing! Phew, now that joke’s out of the way.) Let’s explore the State & National Sins category, cuz it’s our beat, right?

STATE & NATIONAL SINS
Citizens –

Abandonment of God and His Word
as the foundation for civil order

Apathy & neglect – failure to vote, serve,
& support God-fearing men & women in
government

Passive & active support for evil leaders

Neglect of stewardship of liberty & Godly
heritage

Willful ignorance & neglect of
community, state & national affairs

Silent indifference to the imposition of
evil laws & public policy

Greedily seek entitlements & largess of big
government despite cost to children

Leaders –

Judicial, legislative & executive actions
affirming, fostering, promoting &
exporting: abortion, infanticide,
homosexuality & atheistic education

Treasonous barter of American liberty to
international interests

Deceitfully leading America into New
World Order

Using international influence to promote
immorality & abortion

Deliberate destruction of America’s
military defense

Interference and usurpation of parental rights
& responsibilities

Violation of the Church & religious civil
liberties

Usurpation of parents’ authority by
indoctrinating children into sexual
promiscuity, pantheism (worship of the
environment), polytheism
(multiculturalism), atheistic humanism,
liberal politics, socialism & statism under
the guise of public “education” while
failing to teach fundamental academics or
simple truths of right & wrong

Thievery via confiscation of private property
under veil of “environmental protection”

Thievery of family wealth via confiscatory
estate and inheritance taxes

Thievery via confiscatory levels of income
tax & use of tax dollars for evil

Thievery from future generations through
wicked borrowing, deficit spending &
amassing unconscionable public debt

Thievery from all Americans via inflation

Oppression via suffocating overregulation

Violation of the national covenant with the
people: the Declaration and Constitution

Tyranny via unjustified surveillance, search &
seizure

Persecution of Christians (restraining, abusing
& firing Christian School teachers,
government workers, etc., who are true to
their faith), passage of laws
discriminating against vocal pro-life
Christians, imposing outrageous fines and
punishments which do not fit the “crimes”
(e.g., abortion clinic bubble laws, hate
crimes laws, etc.)

Imposition of Statism and Socialism in every
arena of American life (schools,
medicine, business, charity, etc.)

Exaltation of State as God, nullifying His laws
& demanding control over areas of life
(including the Church & Family), that
rightly belong to God

That is Psalms, word-for-word.
