Wisconsin Constitution Party’s Riley Hood: ‘Okay, I Will Consider Other Religions’

Riley Hood, Milwaukee County

Constitution Party Chairman

“Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord; and the people he hath chosen for his own inheritance.” -Psalms 14:34

By Riley J. Hood-Milwaukee County Constitution Party

When I was chairman of the Constitution Party of Wisconsin (CPoW, Ka-POW), I received many calls from liberals were offended by the CPoW Preamble.  Next came the shrill demand that we consider “other religions” and strike out our preamble. In response to people who say we are not “constitutional,” we will now consider other religions and what “blessings” they would bring to America.

Hinduism: Look at India. Liberals carp about inequality in America, yet they give India a free pass. India is a Hindu majority nation with the caste system; untouchables, prostitute castes; and its practice of sati, the burning of the wife alive on the husband’s funeral pyre. The people are starving, but the “sacred cows” are fat and happy.

Islam: Why not move to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia with its practice of Shariah? If Islam gets a working number in America, Shariah will be imposed on us. When you are in danger because you are an infidel, you will grow out of such infantile views as thinking all religions are the same. If you don’t toe the Jihad line, you will be ferreted out and stoned as a “renegade infidel.”

Buddhism: Look at Japan. Zen, is a form of Buddhism, the focus on “being one with yourself,” leads to a lack of charity, a penchant for revenge, suicide and a lack of originality. By the way; the Shogun Iayesu Tokagawa had Japanese Roman Catholics exterminated.

Occultism: Take a look at Haiti, widespread voodoo and widespread poverty. America had an outbreak of Satanism 40 years ago. Children went missing on Halloween, candy was poisoned, and razor blades were being put into caramel apples. Who would figure, violent satanic behavior on a “holiday” that celebrates witches, demons, and ghosts?

Atheism: Look at Cuba, China, and the old USSR. The result is a public with no internal restraint, thus requiring a totalitarian state; which pretends to restrain criminals.

If you think America’s founding fathers wrote the Constitution for the above mentioned folks, you are totally wrong. Here are some quotes:

“If men will not be governed by God, then they will be ruled by tyrants.” William Penn

“It is impossible to rightly govern the world without God and the Bible.” George Washington

“The general principles upon which the Fathers achieved independence were the general principles of Christianity….Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.” John Adams

 “We staked the whole future of American civilization, not upon the power of government, far from it. We’ve staked the future of all our political institutions upon our capacity….to sustain ourselves according to the Ten Commandments of God.” James Madison

 “It cannot be emphasized too strongly or too often that this great nation was founded, not by religionists, but by Christians; not on religions, but on the Gospel of Jesus Christ. For this very reason peoples of other faiths have been supplied a place of safety, prosperity, and freedom of worship here.” Patrick Henry

Our CPoW Preamble States: “The Constitution Party of Wisconsin gratefully acknowledges the blessing of the Lord God as Creator, Preserver, and Ruler of the Universe and of this Nation. It recognizes Jesus Christ as transcendent King over all nations and hereby appeals to Him for aid, comfort, guidance and the protection of His Divine Providence as we work to restore and preserve this nation as a government of the people, by the people, and for the people.” CPoW does affirm the Rights of all men, because they are made in the image God, but that doesn’t mean we have to accept an alien interpretation of our Republic, which our founding fathers rejected. One final quote: “The Bible is for the Government of the People, by the People, and for the People,” John Wycliffe, from the forward of his English translation of the Holy Bible.

    Riley Hood: ‘Okay, I Will Consider Other Religions’
    Error #1: “Atheism: Look at Cuba, China, and the old USSR. The result is a public with no internal restraint, thus requiring a totalitarian state; which pretends to restrain criminals.”

    A, The nations cited above are NOT, ‘strickly speaking’, “atheist”. They claim that a “higher power” controls human destiny. It is called
    “dialect materialism” – “the Marxist theory that maintains the material basis of reality is constantly changing in a dialectical process and the priority of matter over mind.”

    B. RH quotes William Penn; “If men will not be governed by God, then they will be ruled by tyrants.”

    Please tell me if there is a more ‘demonic tyrany’, even closely compared to the Israelites in the Torah (Old Testiment)!

    C. RH quotes Patrick Henry; “For this very reason peoples of other faiths have been supplied a place of safety, prosperity, and freedom
    of worship here.”

    How this came to be attributed to Patrick Henry, despite the third-person mention of him as a noble founder and forefather, is not clear. My personal guess is that somebody along the line mistook the “above quotation” as referring to the sentence that immediately preceeded the phrase, rather than to the actual excerpt given at the beginning of the piece. That’s only a guess, however. Mendacity knows no rules. I think it’s entirely possible that somebody just liked the phrase, attributed it to Patrick Henry because the name was handy, and sent it on its merry way.

    Why anybody would accept it as Henry’s is equally puzzling. The language is twentieth-century. The word “religionists,” for example. In Patrick Henry’s time it meant a fanatic, a person obsessed with religion; not as here people of different religions (or something like that). The piece looks back on the founding of “this great nation” (would Patrick Henry really have used that phrase?) as something in the past, and it seems to know that “peoples of other faiths” are going to be “afforded asylum, prosperity and freedom of worship” in it. It’s wrong historically, and it’s wrong linguistically.

    As far as I can determine the first person to attribute this saying to Patrick Henry was minister David Barton in his book The Myth of Separation (1988). (Chris Rodda calls my attention to David Barton’s footnote crediting the quotation to “a 1988 book called ‘God’s Providence in American History’ by Steve C. Dawson.”) Barton has since disavowed it, though he suggested that it was possible that Patrick Henry’s uncle really said it (no evidence for this assertion provided). It continues to be quoted as Henry’s in many books and on innumerable websites.
