18. Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.
The Apostle's Creed perfectly describes my beliefs concerning the Almighty. The Decalogue perfectly describes my beliefs as to the priorities of our Christian duties. I believe the Bible is God's perfect revelation of Himself to mankind. Our nation's prosperity and strength is a direct gift of God. Since we began turning away from Him beginning with the 1963 O'Hare decision and continuing with the 1973 Roe decision, we have seen him begin to turn his back on us. We must not only reform our government, but reform ourselves and our society to truly restore America.
