Did you know?

A great set of simple facts about the United States:

Did you know?

It reads:

Did you know?
* The original Constitution of the US had only one reference to religion – Article 6 “No religious test shall ever be required as a Qualification to any Office or public Trust under the United States.”
* The de facto motto of the US in 1782 was E. Pluribus Unum (Out of many, one). Congress added “In god we trust” in 1956.
* The original Pledge of Allegiance was written in 1892 and did not include the words “Under God.” That was added in 1954.
* “In god we trust” did not appear on paper money until 1957.

It’s time to change things back to their original form. Get rid of “God”.

    Did You Know:

    America was indeed founded by many bible-believing Christians and based on Christian principles. When they founded this country, the Founding Fathers envisioned a government that would promote and encourage Christianity.

    All but two of the first 108 universities founded in America were Christian. This includes the first, Harvard, where the student handbook listed this as Rule #1: “Let every student be plainly instructed and earnestly pressed to consider well, the main end of his life and studies is to know God and Jesus Christ, which is eternal life, John 17:3; and therefore to lay Jesus Christ as the only foundation for our children to follow the moral principles of the Ten Commandments.”

    In 1777. Continental Congress voted to spend $300,000 to purchase bibles which were to be distributed throughout the 13 colonies! And in 1782, the United States Congress declared, “The Congress of the United States recommends and approves the Holy Bible for use in all schools.

    While the concept of separation of church and state might be implied by the First Amendment which states that “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof….”, it says nothing about the “separation of church and state.” And, even if you accept the principle of the separation of church and state being implied by the First Amendment, it’s implication is not there to protect Americans from religion, it is there to protect religious Americans from the government.

    Its time to take back America.

    “Its [sic] time to take back America.”

    WTF more do you want, an xtian dictatorship? As it is now, American xtians are free to worship as they please and force their views upon non-xtians – TAX FREE.

    If you don’t like the way America treat xtians, then why don’t you go back to where xtians came from – herding goats in some Middle East desert.

    If you prefer facts Joe, try a history book rather than a blog. I would recommend one written before 1900 to get the facts as you call them.

    I predict you won’t but if you do, you will not like what you read.
