Constitution of the United States: Bill of Rights (Amendment 1)
"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances."
This amendment does not say that religion must be completely removed from government. It does say that there shall be no government-sponsored religion.
Our founding fathers did not want to have the Church of England duplicated in the United States of America. They did not want to have one religion predominant over the country as in many middle eastern countries. Our founding fathers truly wanted us to freely choose to worship our God as we determine. FREEDOM. FREE-CHOICE.
Our founding fathers were religious men. Their writings attest to the fact. They were dependent upon the power of God, of Christ Jesus. Frankly, I believe they be would be appalled at the extent to which we have removed God from our lives and from our government.
Our laws are built on the foundation of the Ten Commandments -- God's Law -- to aid us in self-governance.
