Email i got from an ex-marine I work with who is highly religious and a gun rights supporter. Thought it was eye opening... Many facts some people dont seem to know.
..............................................................................................................................

DID YOU KNOW?
As you walk up the steps to the building which houses the U.S. Supreme Court you can see near the top of the building a row of the world's law givers and each one is facing one in the middle who is facing forward with a full frontal view  ... it is Moses and he is holding the Ten Commandments!




DID YOU KNOW?
As you enter the Supreme Court courtroom, the two huge oak doors have the Ten Commandments engraved on each lower portion of each door.





DID YOU KNOW?
As you sit inside the courtroom, you can see the wall,
right above where the Supreme Court judges sit,
a display of the Ten Commandments!



DID YOU KNOW?
There are Bible verses etched in stone all over the Federal Buildings and Monuments in Washington, D.C.


DID YOU KNOW?
James Madison, the fourth president, known as "The Father of Our Constitution" made the following statement:
"We have staked the whole of all our political institutions upon the capacity of mankind for self-government, upon the capacity of each and all of us to govern ourselves, to control ourselves, to sustain ourselves according to the Ten Commandments of God."


DID YOU KNOW?
Patrick Henry, that patriot and Founding Father of our country said:
"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".


DID YOU KNOW?
Every session of Congress begins with a prayer by a paid preacher, whose salary has been paid by the taxpayer since 1777.


DID YOU KNOW?
Fifty-two of the 55 founders of the Constitution were members of the established orthodox churches in the colonies.


DID YOU KNOW?
Thomas Jefferson worried that the Courts would overstep their authority and instead of interpreting the law would begin making law . an oligarchy ..
the rule of few over many.


DID YOU KNOW?
The very first Supreme Court Justice, John Jay, said:
"Americans should select and prefer Christians as their rulers."


How, then, have we gotten to the point that everything we have done for 220 years in this country is now suddenly wrong and unconstitutional?


Please forward this to everyone you can. Lets put it around the world and let the world see and remember what this great country was built on.

Thank you!!

The more modern we get, the more people join them.




We like to refer to it a process of discovery.  Unfortunatly, the truth is not as comforting, so some take the blue bill and we lose them.

Oh, and by the way, Christianity has some noble tenets and requirments of its followers.  The fight is not against them, nor is it against your right to worship whatever you want.  The fight is to keep mysticism and ritual out of implied state endorsement.

Um,

The first three are WRONG !!!   (or, at best, grossly misleading)



Please look it up (on somewhere like snopes.com) before trying to make a point with incorrect information.

All of this info is inaccurate (this was pointed out to me when I posted this).  Look it up on snopes.com.

You hit the nail on the head, it's all about human need, not about the actual existance of a deity.

So was Benjamin Franklin.  And according to Ellis' new biography of George Washington, the father of our country wouldn't take communion or kneel to pray, and would say "destiny" in place of "God".
