Standing before the Berlin Wall with the Brandenburg Gate behind him, Ronald Reagan declared to the soviet leader, General Secretary Gorbachev, 'Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall.'
On June 12, 2007 it will be exactly twenty years since Ronald Reagan made his now famous demand to the Soviet Union's leader. Two and one-half years later the Berlin Wall finally began to come down. With a few powerfully delivered words by one man and the moral fortitude of millions of people, the wall came down.
Slowly, imperceptibly, judicial activism has created a wall designed to protect and promote sexual immorality. It is a wall that threatens to destroy the moral foundations of our society by enforcing the teaching of sexual immorality in all of our classrooms across this great land. The wall is built on nothing more or less than the gradual federalization of sexual morality itself. Federalism is the force and power supporting it.
Ronald Reagan needed a great deal of courage to make his demand on that day. We also need the same courage today. We need the courage to admit to ourselves that it is time to, 'Tear down this wall.'
