Black Robe Regiment was a derisive British reference to the black-robed American clergy, who the British regarded “chief agitators of the Rebellion” (i.e. “War for Independence”) of the colonies against British rule. The label was a fitting appellation, for by the time the war began on April 19, 1775, preaching had made the political worldview embodied in the Declaration of Independence ubiquitous.
The contribution of the American clergy to the monumental act of Independence cannot be overstated, for the patriot pastors had “effected a revolution in the hearts and minds of the people,” (John Adams) before the war commenced.
Only those who are “born again” can fully understand and secure “the Blessings of Liberty.” Because most evangelical leaders today insist on obeying the unconstitutional Johnson Amendment, rather than preaching the whole counsel of God, political sermons, which were commonplace in America for over 300 years, are rare, and true Liberty has languished as a result.
"Religion gave birth to America...Sign The Pledge
Excerpt from the Online Library of Liberty post, "Political Sermons and the American Revolution:"
"Religion gave birth to America, Tocqueville observed long ago. On the eve of Revolution, in his last-ditch attempt to stave off impending catastrophe, Edmund Burke reminded the House of Commons of the inseparable alliance between liberty and religion among Englishmen in America. Mercy Otis Warren noted in her 1805 history of the American Revolution: “It must be acknowledged, that the religious and moral character of Americans yet stands on a higher grade of excellence and purity, than that of most other nations.” Of the Americans on the eve of the Revolution Carl Bridenbaugh has exclaimed, “who can deny that for them the very core of existence was their relation to God?"
In Chapter VXII of Democracy in America, Alexander de Tocqueville wrote, "The greatest part of British America was peopled by men who, after having shaken off the authority of the Pope, acknowledged no other religious supremacy: they brought with them into the New World a form of Christianity which I cannot better describe than by styling it a democratic and republican religion. This contributed powerfully to the establishment of a republic and a democracy in public affairs; and from the beginning, politics and religion contracted an alliance which has never been dissolved."
Every patriotic American needs to commit themselves to securing the priceless blessings of Liberty. Our Founding Fathers pledged their “Lives, their Fortunes, and their Sacred Honor” to secure Liberty and relied on the protection of Almighty God to carry out their mission.
Every generation of Americans before ours, secured Liberty to their own and our generation. Join with pastors and other patriots in our generation who are striving to secure “the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity.”
