Soldiering on

"Soldiering on" Continued...

Boykin, who on a recent mid-January day was preparing to visit House Speaker John Boehner’s office on Capitol Hill, described the country he’s fought for as “almost rudderless,” where a whole generation has failed to learn about the nation’s religious roots. He plans to focus this year on the nation’s debt, its growing addiction to entitlements, the integrity of the family, and the sanctity of life. 

“When you remove God from society,” he said, “that void is filled with something else, and in most cases that something else is evil.”
