Dan Forest on Principles & Values

 

 


Freedom of religion--not freedom from religion

Q: Do you promise to protect the freedom of Christians to share the Gospel and to practice Biblical principles?

A: Yes.

Q: What does "separation of church and state" mean to you?

A: The term "separation of church and state" isn't found anywhere in the Constitution and was never intended to be a Constitutional argument. The phrase comes from a personal letter from Thomas Jefferson, later taken out of context in the 20th century when a Supreme Court justice used that letter to infer that there should be such separation. Our Founding Fathers never believed that. Our Constitution enshrines freedom of religion--of all faiths. It does not require freedom from religion.

Q: Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values?

A: God loves us, created each of us in his image, and has a plan for us. But due to sin, we have become separated from God. Out of love, God sent His Son to earth to die for our sins. The blood he shed atones for the sins of all those who accept him as their Lord.

Country has kicked God out schools, courts, nation

North Carolina Lt. Gov. Dan Forest spoke at the Faith and Freedom Coalition's 2014 Road to Majority conference. Forest said, "America is at a great crossroads where it must decide for or against God. The heart of the matter is we have forgotten God. We have kicked him out of our house, out of our schoolhouse, out of our courthouse, and out of our statehouse, and now, out of our nation. We call it everything but what it is, we call it everything but sin, the turning away from God."

Nation founded on the principles of Jesus Christ

"No other nation, my friends, has ever survived the diversity and multiculturalism that America faces today, because of a lack of assimilation, because of this division, and because of this identity politics," Forest claimed. "But no other nation has ever been founded on the principles of Jesus Christ, that begin the redemption and reconciliation through the atoning blood of our savior," he added.

Strongly protect religious liberty, according to AFA survey.

Forest supports the AFA survey question on religious liberty

The AFA inferred whether candidates agree or disagree with the statement, 'Religious liberty is at risk in the United States and deserves the highest level of protection in the law'? Self-description: (American Family Association helps produce iVoterGuides): "Grounded in God; rooted in research"; they "thoroughly investigate candidates"; when they cannot "evaluate with confidence, they receive an 'Insufficient' rating" (& we exclude)

Strongly pro-Judeo-Christian morality, according to AFA survey.

Forest supports the AFA survey question on Judeo-Christian values

The AFA inferred whether candidates agree or disagree with the statement, 'Judeo-Christian values established a framework of morality which is necessary for our system of limited government'?
