George Washington, in his Farewell Address, proclaimed:
“Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. ”
John Adams, another Founding Father agreed:
“Our constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.”
Patrick Henry, who proclaimed “Give me Liberty or give me death,” declared:
“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.”
Woodrow Wilson, 28th President of the United States, said:
“America was born a Christian nation. America was born to exemplify that devotion to the elements of righteousness which are derived from the revelations of the Holy Scripture."
Justice Brewer, in the 1892 case Church of the Holy Trinity v. United States, stated:
“... this is a Christian nation.”
Justice William O. Douglas, in the 1952 case of Zorach v. Clauson, wrote:
"We are a religious people whose institutions presuppose a Supreme Being....”
And the list goes on ...
The separation of church and state was never the intention of the First Amendment adopted by our Founding Fathers. The plain text simply prohibited the establishment of a national church. However, that all changed, beginning in the 1960s when the U.S. Supreme Court in its opinions declared war on Christianity.
As you celebrate the Fourth of July weekend, please remember ---
The Price of Freedom.
Take the time to honor the sacrifices for our freedom made by our fighting men and women throughout our history — From Lexington and Valley Forge, to Iraq and Afghanistan — and today, by our Special Forces in harm’s way in places known and unknown. Take a moment to thank our men and women in uniform and our veterans. And, please, pray for them.
