POUNDING HOME THE POINT

My last post was about the evidence that our founders were not Deists; that they believed in a God who governs in the affairs of man and that they did not intend for this nation’s government to be thought of as ‘secular.’  I p[resented evidence from the words of Jefferson, Franklin and John Adams – and even then, I only used a few of the many quote I could have cited to make my point.  However, as these are lies that I feel must be opposed everywhere they are found – and in the most vigorous fashion – I can’t help but feel driven to add to the weight of evidence that speaks – nay, screams out through history in opposition to those voices who claim our founders did not believe in God and, thus, intentionally built a Godless nation.

“Had the people, during the Revolution, had a suspicion of any attempt to wage war against Christianity, that Revolution would have been strangled in the cradle…. It [religion] must be considered as the foundation on which the whole structure rests… In this age there can be no Substitute for Christianity; that, in its general principles, is the great conservative element on which we must reply for the purity and permanence of free institutions.  That was the religion of the founders of the republic, and they expected it to remain the religion of their descendents.”

–House and Senate Judiciary Committee reports, 1853-1854

“Such is my veneration for every religion that reveals the attributes of the Deity, or a future state of rewards and punishments, that I had rather see the opinions of Confucius or Mohamed inculcated upon our youth than see them grow up wholly devoid of a system of religious principles.  But the religion I mean to recommend in this place is that of the New Testament…”

Dr. Benjamin Rush, signer of the Declaration of Independence and father of American medicine

“The real object of the [First A]mendment was not to countenance, much less to advance, Mahometanism, or Judaism, of infidelity [Atheism], by prostrating Christianity; but to exclude all rivalry among Christian sects [denominations].”

–Supreme Court Justice Joseph Story, 1811-1845, from his “Commentaries of the Constitution of the United States”

“But it is objected that the people of America may perhaps choose representatives who have no religion at all, and that pagans and Mahometans may be admitted into office…  But it is never to be supposed the the people of America will trust their dearest rights to persons who have no religion at all, or a religion materially different from their own.”

–Supreme Court Justice James Iredell, nominated to the court by President Washington

“The purest principles of morality are to be taught [in public schools].  Where are they found?  Whoever searches for them must go to the source from which a Christian man derives his faith – the Bible… [T]here is an obligation to teach what the Bible alone teaches, viz. a pure system of morality.”

–United States Supreme Court majority opinion, Vidal v. Girard’s Executors, 1844

“This is a Christian nation.”

–United States Supreme Court majority opinion, Church of the Holy Trinity v. United States, 1892

“We are a Christian people…”

United States Supreme Court, United States v. Macintosh, 1931

“The First Amendment, however, does not say that in every and all respects that there shall be a separation of Church and State…  Otherwise the State and religion would be aliens to each other – hostile, suspicious, and unfriendly…

We are a religious people whose institutions presuppose a Supreme Being…”

–United States Supreme Court, Zorach v. Clauson, 1952

“[T]his is a religious people.  This is historically true…  These are not individual sayings, declarations of private persons: they are organic utterances; they speak the voice of the entire people…  These and many other matters which might be noticed, and a volume of unofficial declarations to the mass of organic utterances that this is a Christian nation.”

–United States Supreme Court, 1892

I could go on, but why bother.  Those who have eyes and ears will know the truth by now, and those who continue to rebel will never know it.  The more important question is not whether or not our founders were Christian, but how is it that, as a nation, we even question this fact?  And the answer is found in the Spirit of deception.  That spirit which re-writes history and twists what actually was to fit its purpose is the spirit of Satan, the great deceiver.  After all, revisionism is deception, often deceiving both the person who hears as well as spreads the lie.  But all of this can be rendered harmless by simply speaking the truth.  However, before one can speak the truth, one must first take time to learn it.

    It is Worth Revisiting this post…

  3. We are in a battle with a spirit that has infected many of our neighbors, countrymen and elected officials.

    I’m certain our founders and predecessors were facing similar situations, but they did not cave. We can’t cave because the alternative is bad, very bad.

    If you want your children and/or grandchildren to have a shred of the liberty you have had- then you had better start yesterday.

    In my day when the truth offended someone- it was call conviction!

  5. Having read this I believed it was very enlightening.
    I appreciate you spending some time and energy to put this
    short article together. I once again find myself spending a significant
    amount of time both reading and commenting.
    But so what, it was still worthwhile!
