Faith and our Nation

The Preamble of the Constitution reads:
We the people of the United States, in order to form a more perfect union, establish Justice, insure domestic tranquility; provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and to our posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.
From the very beginning of our nation, faith and freedom were deeply intertwined. Liberty strengthened faith, allowing it to freely express its beliefs; pursue its divine mission. But faith was necessary for liberty - not only does it shape moral character; it builds the moral fiber necessary for us to be free.
The inclusion of the phrase “blessings of liberty” in the preamble of the Constitution appropriately sets the stage for the structure of government our Founders envisioned. Man is the recipient of liberty; he does not grant it. It is through Constitutional checks and balances of government and the rule of law, however, that man is tasked with protecting and defending the “blessings of liberty to ourselves and to our posterity.” 

President George Washington said, it is “our duty as a people, with devout reverence and affectionate gratitude, to acknowledge our many and great obligations to Almighty God and to implore Him to continue and confirm the blessings we experience.”
1.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!
2.As you enter the Supreme Court courtroom, the two huge oak doors have the Ten Commandments engraved on each lower portion of each door.
3.As you sit inside the courtroom, you can see the wall, right above where the Supreme Court judges sit, a display of the Ten Commandments!
4.There are Bible verses etched in stone all over the Federal Buildings and Monuments in Washington, D.C.
5.James Madison, the fourth president, known as "The Father of Our Constitution" made the following statement:
a. "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."
6.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".
7.Every session of Congress begins with a prayer by a paid preacher, whose salary has been paid by the taxpayer since 1777.
8.Fifty-two of the 55 founders of the Constitution were members of the established orthodox churches in the colonies.
9.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.
10.     The very first Supreme Court Justice, John Jay, said:
"Americans should select and prefer Christians as their rulers."

It is said that 86% of Americans believe in God. Therefore, it is very hard to understand why there is such a mess about having the Ten Commandments on display or "In God We Trust" on our money and having God in the Pledge of Allegiance. Why don't we just tell the other 14% to Sit Down and SHUT UP!!!

But, Obama says that now (under his rule) we are no longer a Christian nation.

Send him and the other left wing wackos an everlasting message (a little more clear than the 2010 vote, where somehow they missed it)

Now Daschle, Now Darden, Now Sharpton, Wolf Blitzen On Biden, on Polosi, on Obama, on Clinton!

At the top of the Senate, there arose such a clatter To eliminate Jesus, in all public matter.

And we spoke not a word, as they took away our faith Forbidden to speak of salvation and grace.
