To start with, I work hard not to pass on any of my own views or opinions in my writings. In order to report a true objective perspective one must leave themselves out of it. Agree or not with what is being reported, a report must resist the urge to spin a story in order to a line it with their feelings or believes. For example, I don’t agree with a lot of what the president says however I write his words just the same. There is enough trouble with censorship in the media with reports picking and choosing what they feel to be true or important. This may be the only time you’ll read my personal thoughts on a story.
With that said I wanted to share an e-mail I received about God. Well god and the government and according to the e-mail how God is so weaved into the fabric of our government any attempt to completely remove it would leave our system in tatters.
Which lead me to the question why was God so important to the founders in the first place? Furthermore, why is it so important to a few that it be removed? In good times or bad the founders looked to God and the Bible for guidance over their actions. Who’s guiding the actions of today’s elected officials? I have added my e-mail to this piece so that you the reader could decide for yourself if God still has a place in government and in our society as a whole. The rest of this piece is the e-mail; I would like to hear your thoughts.
Did you know? 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 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. Fifty-two of the 55 founders of the Constitution were members of the established Orthodox churches in the colonies. Every session of Congress begins with a prayer by a paid preacher, whose salary has been paid by the taxpayer since 1777.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?
'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.' James Madison, fourth President of the United States.
