The United States was founded upon the principles of the Christian and Jewish faiths. I have read and heard many of the conspiracy and other outrageous theories on the true nature of the United States, but I must disagree with many of them. We were, and still are, a nation based on faith in God. Religion has played a key role in the development of our nation.
Many, if not all, of the forefathers were men of faithful convictions to God. You may say some of them were atheist or agnostic, but I again must disagree. Some say George Washington was not a religious man because of him supposedly being a Deist. I ask you if he was then why did he spend hours upon hours each morning in prayer with God before he started each day? The United States Capitol was even at one time used as a church. What do you think would happen now if someone used a capitol in our nation to hold church services?
Now in the US Supreme Court they are questioning whether or not the Ten Commandments should be allowed on government property. Our nation is based on the principles found in the Ten Commandments and Hammurabi’s Code. To remove the Ten Commandments would remove our history. What is next, rewriting the Constitution or history itself so that our founders seem like they were card-carrying members of the ACLU? We cannot allow unelected Judges to hijack this nation with their rule by few.
