A little history for you today…this excerpt and the quote below are taken from The Luketonian that was published (and sent to all registered parishioners) in June 1949.
“…For today the world is ill of the disease of the soul called materialism. If the trend toward paganism continues it is only a matter of time before our nation will collapse from within…Millions of decent Americans have long forgotten the basic truth that every human being gets his fundamental rights from God ~ not from the State! That, in fact, the chief purpose of the State ~ as the Founding Fathers repeatedly affirmed in the Declaration of Independence ~ is to protect those God-given rights. To believe that these rights are safe today is to embrace illusion.”
