said five of the black robed rulers of the land!
George Washington, the father of our nation said “It is impossible to rightly govern the world without God and the Bible.”
Today, 27 June 2005, the majority of the United States Supreme Court pronounced that George Washington was wrong. The court refused (5-4) to allow the display of the Ten Commandments in two Kentucky courthouses,because they ruled that county officials were displaying them to advance religion despite the First Amendment’s requirement that government be neutral.
James Madison, the chief architect of the Constitution, stated: “We have staked the whole future of American civilization, not upon the power of government, far from it. We have staked the future of our republic upon the capacity of each and all of our citizens to govern themselves and thereby sustain our own selves, according to the Ten Commandments of God.”
Thomas Jefferson, said “Our Constitution was written for a nation that believed in the Almighty God of the Holy Bible.”
Even Andrew Jackson, a Democrat, believed as he said “The Bible is the rock on which our republic rests”.
“The Bible is the sheet anchor of our liberties” said Ulysses S. Grant.
The Supreme Court of the United States has proclaimed that these early leaders of our nation, were all wrong!
