This program will briefly examine a contemporary American tragedy, the death due to drug overdose of Colt Brennan, a star college football quarterback for the University of Hawaii who finished third in the voting for the Heisman Trophy in 2007. The Heisman trophy is awarded annually to the best college football player for that year. Colt Brennan’s tragic death is symbolic of the death spiral into which the United States, as well as much of the world, has fallen. The culture in which Colt Brennan grew into adulthood, as well as the circumstances leading to Colt Brennan’s death, bear a relationship to Thanksgiving that I will attempt to establish. As a society, our failure to abide by the Biblical principles that inspired the Thanksgiving holiday will lead to the demise of the United States just as assuredly as Colt Brennan’s failure to abide by Biblical principles resulted in the tragic death of a very gifted and materially blessed young man.
Five people died during the January 6, 2021 demonstration at the US Capitol, but the only death by violence was that of Ashli Babbitt, callously shot by a Capitol Police Officer. Never forget Ashli Babbitt.
The program title, Liberty and Posterity, comes from the US Constitution, the preamble of which states that one of the reasons for writing and ratifying the Constitution was to “secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity,” our posterity being our children and descendants not yet born. As a reminder, on the Liberty and Posterity program, we view all events and activities in relation to reality, truth, and Biblical morality. If you have a problem with that, the problem is on your end, not ours.
