Pompeo and Barr -- Christians taking up the fight

Dana Mathewson

In a recent Townhall Columnists article, Star Parker tells us some essential facts about these two high-level Trump administration officials that most of us didn't know. Facts that should give us more respect for them.

Two recent high-profile speeches by Trump administration officials say much -- maybe even all we need to know -- about the core cultural conflicts in the country and what will define the upcoming election.

One speech, titled "Being a Christian Leader," was delivered by Secretary of State Mike Pompeo to the American Association of Christian Counselors in Nashville, Tennessee. Attorney General William Barr delivered the other speech to the law school and the de Nicola Center for Ethics and Culture at the University of Notre Dame.

Pompeo discussed how, as a young man at West Point, he refocused his Christian faith to the center of his life. He went on to relate how this influences today how he understands America's role in the world and how he does his job as secretary of state.

Barr discussed the aggressive and destructive secularism now sweeping the country. He touched on the key point, made first by then-President George Washington in his 1796 farewell address to the nation, that a free nation must be a self-governing nation and that this only is possible through moral virtue.

Limited government requires a population that rules itself. This requires, as Barr explained, "shared moral values" that "rest on authority independent of men's will -- they must flow from a transcendent Supreme Being."

There is no way two high-profile officials from the Trump administration would give public presentations like these without support from the president, particularly in today's highly charged political environment.

Pompeo and Barr communicated a worldview starkly in contrast to what we're hearing from the Democratic presidential hopefuls, most recently at the debate in Westerville, Ohio.

The line is drawn clearly in the sand.

President Trump is running on the premise that America is a free nation Under God.

Democrats see our future in secular humanism.

It's a wonderful and uplifting article -- if you're a conservative, that is. And it's found here: https://townhall.com/columnists/starparker/2019/10/23/pompeo-and-barr-n2555186

1 That's right; the real battle in this country is between Christ and Anti-christ, and the Progressives are clearly on the side of anti-christ. How do I know? Aren't they the ones who want to feed the hungry, clothe the naked, etc.? Perhaps, but they do it with other people's money, which is stealing. And they reject the rest of Christ, from the concept of spiritual salvation to His commands about moral purity to His example of humbleness and patience and kindness.

We are in a spiritual war for the soul of America. I'm glad these two men are on our side.
