DID YOU KNOW?And therein lies the question. I've argued that insofar as there's not an American equivalent of the Church of England, i.e. a federal bureaucracy dedicated to a specific religion, along with laws mandating you attend, we have an adequate "separation of church and state". In fact, I think the biggest breach of the prospect of separating church from state is that we allow churches to operate without any federal or tax oversight. That's just my opinion...curious to hear others.
As you walk up the steps to the building which houses the U.S Supreme Court you can see near the top of the building a row of the world's law givers and each one is facing one in the middle who is facing forward with a full frontal view .. it is Moses and he is holding the Ten Commandments!
As you enter the Supreme Court courtroom, the two huge oak doors have the Ten Commandments engraved on each lower portion of each door.
As you sit inside the courtroom, you can see [on] the wall, right above where the Supreme Court judges sit, a display of the Ten Commandments!
There are Bible verses etched in stone all over the Federal Buildings and Monuments in Washington , D.C.
James Madison, the fourth president, known as 'The Father of Our Constitution' made the following statement:
"We have staked the whole of all our political institutions upon the capacity of mankind for self-government, upon the capacity of each and all of us to govern ourselves, to control ourselves, to sustain ourselves according to the Ten Commandments of God."
Patrick Henry, that patriot and Founding Father of our country said:
"It cannot be emphasized too strongly or too often that this great nation was founded not by religionists but by Christians, not on religions but on the Gospel of Jesus Christ."Every session of Congress begins with a prayer by a paid preacher, whose salary has been paid by the taxpayer since 1777.
Fifty-two of the 55 founders of the Constitution were members of the established orthodox churches in the colonies.
Thomas Jefferson worried that the Courts would overstep their authority and instead of interpreting the law would begin making law - an oligarchy, the rule of few over many.
The very first Supreme Court Justice, John Jay, said:
"Americans should select and prefer Christians as their rulers."How then, have we gotten to the point that everything we have done for 220 years in this country is now suddenly wrong and unconstitutional?
