Our Cause is Just

Why do we feel some type of way? Because for the ideological liberal “our causes” are our religion.

The death of Ginsberg threatens “our religion.” That is why we feel the way we do. The Supreme Court is responsible for interpreting our “public religion,” not our private one. We don’t have enough seats to protect “our public religion,” the religion we want to bequeath to our children. That’s why we feel the way we do. “Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other,” said John Adams.

But no matter how just “our causes” are, “our causes” are not the source of our strength in our public or private religion.

“Our causes” are not theology. The source of my strength is my belief and my incessant study of the redeemer, and The Supreme Governor of the Universe. It should be the source of “our” strength as a nation.

“Our causes” can be, “our causes,” without a belief in The Supreme Governor of the universe. This is the reason “our causes” can be embraced by atheists, agnostics, and others. Often times we join in the belief of “our causes” because the ends are the same, even if our means (belief in the Supreme Governor) differ. While I respect the non-believers right to believe in no God and even the right to question Gods existence, and while we share a belief in “our causes” under law, atheism and agnosticism is not the source of my strength.

The nonbeliever is far more depressed this morning than I am. My belief is the source of my strength.

The course of history will be determined Providence, by the hand and by the finger of God as the source of our motivation for which many causes flow and will be determined.

I believe in “our causes,” I believe in America. But “our causes” must be of God, for all that we believe to be true, our infinite belief in the one True God of human history, the sustainer of time and space, and all that we know to be true, the God of Abraham Isaac and Jacob, the author of “our causes,” are truly inseparable.

Jesse Jackson Jr was born into advocacy and the struggle for human rights. He entered the world at the height of the American civil rights movement. As such, his father stood among the thousands on the Edmund Pettus Bridge just two days before his birth. The feverish demand for equal voting rights for African Americans, no doubt, infected Jesse with the fight for justice and the right to the pursuit of happiness right down to his bones. He accepts the charge. With this legacy of civil rights, Jesse has always known the importance of using his talents for the advancement of the common good and in the fight for marginalized groups. He carried that foregone conclusion to the platform provided him at North Carolina A&T University. As early as his freshman year, Jackson began working for the people, on campus and abroad. While earning his Bachelor’s of Science degree in business management, he represented the student body as President and he founded a student activism organization centered on overcoming apartheid in South Africa. Jesse Jackson, Jr. is at the seat of his soul when he is working on the front lines of activism. He was an active member of the demonstrations against the blatant civil rights violations of South Africans. Similarly, he has threaded into the fabric at home as Field Director of the National Rainbow Coalition, where he worked to promote voter registration and education programs. Not long after earning his Master’s in theology and his Juris Doctor, Jesse began representing the interest of the citizens of Illinois as a member of the U.S. House of Representatives. In his 17 years in Congress, from 1995 to 2012, Jesse Jackson Jr had a say in every vote. Additionally, he has served on myriad committees, including the House Appropriations Committee. Taking his aptitude for civic service a step further, Jackson also lent his talent during the 2008 presidential election—working diligently to assist fellow Illinois-native Barack Obama win the presidency. Jesse is an advocate for equal education rights, equal employment opportunities, improving the circumstances of impoverished Americans, conserving various American landmarks as historical districts and reinvigoration the US economy following the 2007-2008 housing and auto market crash. Today, as a citizen thriving with bipolar disorder, Jesse continues the fight on behalf of marginalized communities through his work to help America eliminate the stigma of living with a mental health challenge. Jesse Jackson Jr’s tireless subscription to knowledge of the mind, freedom of the heart and the voice of the vote informs his current effort to impact. His rich possession of theological, historical, political and geopolitical knowledge creates an elemental toolbox that makes him a galvanizing catalyst for change.
