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.
