    President George Washington believed the fate of the new country rested in its citizens’ fidelity to God. That is why he dedicated America to God.

    “Washington: A Man of Prayer, 2014″ commemorates the events of April 30, 1789, when, after being sworn in at Federal Hall, President Washington, accompanied by Congress, proceeded to St. Paul’s Chapel where, as one of his first official acts, the president offered a prayer of dedication to God on America’s behalf.

    [James Madison
    The Father of the Constitution

    “We have staked the whole future of American civilization, not upon the power of government, far from it.

    We’ve staked the future of all our political institutions upon our capacity…to sustain ourselves according to the Ten Commandments of God.”

    [1778 to the General Assembly of the State of Virginia][/QUOTE]

    It cannot be emphasized too strongly or too often that this great nation was founded, not by religionists, but by Christians; not on religions, but on the gospel of Jesus Christ! For this very reason peoples of other faiths have been afforded asylum, prosperity, and freedom of worship here.

    I don't recall seeing that in the founding documents.

    Yea, that's not in the founding documents either.

    Then there is all those annoying rulings by the SCOTUS as they continues to tell believers that they do NOT have the right to impose their beliefs upon others, even if it is in your rule book. Slaves, women's rights, racism, inter-racial marriage, SSM, all from the bible, all struck down by the courts interpretation of the Constitution.

    The Declaration of Independence: A Transcription

    IN CONGRESS, July 4, 1776.

    The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America,

    When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

    We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.--That to secure these rights....................

    Founded by persons who valued God and their belief in God. The first amendment also acknowledges the validity of belief in any God. Otherwise there would be no religious wording at all in the bill of rights.

    I know I'm new here but I've been reading for a while. Why such a rabid response to anything "God?" It's like some anti-religion crazy attacking everyone and anything "God." Did something happen to you that caused you to hate religion? It's one thing to be an atheist, it's another to hate religion to the point where one feels they must slap anyone who makes a religious comment.

    TroutKing, Good stuff! And you make a very good point.

    Nature's god .. ah yes, the birds and the bees.

    However the Supreme Court's interpretation continues to rule that the "rules" from the bible may not be imposed on everyone through civil law. And you should be damn grateful for that, least you find yourself living under Muslim sharia laws. The Constitution protects all, even through religions continue to discriminate against many.

    And "creator", the theory of evolution wouldn't come along for nearly 100 years, a long held ignorance from people that didn't understand where the sun went at night.

    The only God that exists regardless of religion is nature's God. He is one and the same by all names. Some call him nature, some call him God, some call him Allah (Arabic word for God) or Christ (which means Messiah -or- God). If we change federal law to defines God as any deity, including nature, that anyone believes-in, would you believe in God? Do you believe in nature? Would would an atheist do? He would have no further argument.

    Would not change my beliefs in the slightest, no more than you would change allegiance from your god to the muslim god, and cause you to give up bacon, alcohol, football, etc.
