The Need for a Moral and God-Fearing President

David Martin | The Daily Knight

On May 12, conservative Catholic author, father of eight, and podcaster Dr. Taylor Marshall announced he is running for president in 2024.


“I am serious. I am running,” Marshall confirmed with LifeSiteNews on May 12 via text message.


If elected, Marshall, 45, would mark the first Catholic president since Kennedy and one who would likely bring abortion to an end in America.


He tweeted on May 12:


“As I run for President of the United States in 2024, I suggest that the only meaningful and consistent position on the sanctity of human life is a total ban on abortion from conception through birth. Murder is murder. Who agrees?"


He also tweeted:


“As I run for President of the United States, I am placing on my platform the definition of ‘matrimony’ as one man and one woman united by vows ‘until death do us part.'”


Immorality Leading to Socialist Tyranny


Marshall’s announcement comes at a time when there is need for a God-fearing man to admonish the nation about its immorality. For danger is at our door because we as a nation have offended God by our manifold sins, especially those of homosexuality and abortion. These two sins cry to Heaven for vengeance and have been the primary tools of satanists to weaken our country, so if we are to succeed in regaining our liberty and God’s blessings, we must resolve now to criminalize these abominations. For we see America being reduced now to servitude by deep-state socialists who plan to herd us like cattle into the red barn of tyranny.


America’s Ingratitude


Half-baked political talk will get us nowhere. What is needed is a leader who will echo Lincoln’s March 30, 1863, Proclamation in which he cited the ingratitude of America that had brought upon it “the calamity of civil war” and wherein he exhorted the nation “to humble ourselves before the offended Power, to confess our national sins, and to pray for clemency and forgiveness.”


Lincoln said:


“We have been the recipients of the choicest bounties of Heaven; we have been preserved these many years in peace and prosperity; we have grown in numbers, wealth, and power as no other nation has ever grown. But we have forgotten God. We have forgotten the gracious hand which preserved us in peace and multiplied and enriched and strengthened us, and we have vainly imagined, in the deceitfulness of our hearts, that all these blessings were produced by some superior wisdom and virtue of our own. Intoxicated with unbroken success, we have become too self-sufficient to feel the necessity of redeeming and preserving grace, too proud to pray to the God that made us.”


Lincoln’s words certainly hit home. Never in history was there a nation so noble, so blessed, so abundantly endowed as this great nation of America. America was truly the Solomon among the nations, a glorious nation dripping with prosperity, a nation that the other countries from afar could look to for guidance, protection and help. Her spirit covered the earth and dispelled the darkness while her people basked in her splendor. At the sight of her radiant majesty, the Soviet beast was forced to remain lurking in the obscurity while America prospered fabulously in the light.


But like Solomon, America grew fat and spoiled and forgot the cause of her bounty. Like Eve, she lent her ears to the red serpent and was seduced by its fake promises of peace and security. Everywhere we saw the clenched fist being raised against moral authority amidst rebellious cries of liberation and equality, all set to the beat of pagan rock and roll, to the end that America is now a land of pagans, stripped of her former glory. America the once proud eagle has been plucked by Satan. Intoxicated with unbroken success we too have forgotten God and have failed to recognize a lesson of history that when the morals of a country start to go down into darkness that country will soon be ended.


What makes us think that we can continue any longer as a free nation without a complete return to God? It behooves us to reflect on how the Israelites were repeatedly abandoned to captivity when they offended God with their immorality, because we too will be abandoned if we persist in our immorality. Abortion? Queer behavior? Women popping morning-after ‘murder pills’ so they can continue “safely” in their shame? “Transgenders” being appointed to positions of leadership? Parents sexually mutilating their children with “transgender” surgeries? Government normalizing pedophilia in kindergarten and elementary schools?


Enough with the empty political jargon. A true president today will emphasize morals and alert his people that wars are a punishment for man’s sins. He must serve more as a preacher to set the people straight.




A True President Doesn’t Separate Religion from Government


We pray that whoever is elected will place the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment in proper perspective so that Americans will understand that Separation of Church and State never meant that the state was to be separated from God. Religion and government may never be kept separate, quite obviously, since we were set up as “A Christian Nation” in which “Our laws and our institutions must necessarily be based upon and embody the teachings of the Redeemer of mankind.” (SCOTUS Declaration, 1892)


What this means is that all our legislation and judicial decrees must be grounded in Christian principle in order for them to be valid. Separation of Church and State simply meant that the state cannot infringe on the Christian liberty of the people, not only with respect to their Sunday worship but to their Christian witness in the public arena. It means that government may not set itself up as an “establishment” to in any way prohibit, restrict, or punish the free exercise of the Christian people in all its facets.


The State Serves the People


In our form of government the people do not serve the state but the state serves the people, this being the sole duty of government, so that if the state hasn’t done its part to guarantee complete liberty for all prolife advocates, pro-family teachers, Catholic clergy, publishers, and podcasters, as well as for opponents of LGBT, transgenderism, globalism, socialism, satanism, antifa, or anything un-American, the state has fallen down miserably in its duty to the American people. The fact that state officials have raided the homes of prolifers, fired medical personnel for defending life, and have fined Christian bakers for refusing to bake queer cakes for LGBT couples is a heinous travesty of justice that calls for public condemnation.


America needs a leader who will stand up to these insults against the American people, not a politician who serves as a puppet for foreign private interest groups like the United Nations.


Reform of the Allocation of American Tax Money


On that note, we need a president who will authorize a special committee to oversee the allocation of American tax monies because at present much of this money is going to funding murder, crime, and revolution against God and country. Too long have the globalist pharaohs in Washington been laying tax burdens on the people to build their Masonic pyramid of the New World Order, which is of no concern to America. The UN, CFR, WCC, and WEF are NGO private interest groups, and their pet causes of globalism, climate-change, LGBT, transgenderism, abortion, Planned Parenthood, feminist rights, indigenous rights, animal rights, and space exploration are all in the category of non-essential, un-American private interests. Even so, Americans are forced each year to fund these corrupt pagan interests.


For example, over 32 $billion is allotted by Congress each year to NASA, which is committed to the science fiction fantasy of finding alien life on other planets. There exists no life on other planets so why do they persist in this fantasy trip? These so-called extra-terrestrial aliens are actually demons from Hell on special mission to delude the populace concerning the origin of man, and here we go giving $billions to this detrimental, waste-of-time organization when the money should be used wisely for the betterment of America.

We indeed need a complete overhaul of our taxation system because at present American taxpayers are being forced to fund crime against their moral conscience. We need a political Moses to deliver Americans from this fiscal bondage and to remind them that a Christian nation must not fund immorality.


Abortion Must Be Criminalized at the Federal Level


But especially, we need a president who will criminalize every form of abortion at the federal level on the grounds that it is unconstitutional. For upon the signing of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776 was born a nation that held at the very center of its beliefs those sacred rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. The nation then proceeded to draft for itself a law known as the U.S. Constitution, which was wholly intended to protect these Biblical principles from any government attempts to infringe upon them. For “Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people.” (John Adams)


Today we see the right to life being botched to pieces by the enemies of America, namely, the Freemasons and deep-state Socialists operating under the pretext of democracy. These agents now hold the highest positions in our government. Their intention is to put this country to death beginning with the unborn, therefore we can pull no punches in our fight for human life.


The first of those unalienable rights cited by Jeffersonthat sacred right to lifeis the very kernel of our Constitution that we today are called to renourish that it might regerminate unto a true and living revival of America.
