American Heritage..

According to Webster: her·i·tage, (in context) Something that is passed down from preceding generations; a tradition.

  

A few days ago, April 23 to be exact, ..I wrote a blog entitled; “Faith,” ..in which I made several references to God, and my belief in God, ..which has brought me a “myriad”…

According to Webster: myr·i·ad, (in context) A vast number.

Continuing…

..of comments, ..both from like minded, i.e., (open-minded) “common sense” folks, ..and from, ..at least in “my opinion,” ..lamentable, ..unenlightened, ..and/or, ..in “my opinion” primitive “frightened” people…

  

..people, ..that at least in my opinion, would probably benefit more from a belief in, ..or faith in God, ..rather than the belief and faith that “they” related that “they have in Barack Obama.

I received another e-mail (forward) from an old friend the day after I posted my “Blog” entitled; “Faith.”

My friend genuinely believes in God and he is a genuine patriot. My friend is a genuine friend, who not only reads my blather, he participates in its distribution, ..which of course ..I truly appreciate.

In the past, on occasion I have found enough truth in a few (forwards) to publish them in my blog in their entirety.

However, as religion and politics are such sensitive issues, I feel obligated to scrutinize my offerings concerning religion and politics to a higher level.

The forward, entitled (did you know?) that I received from my friend, (text) reads;…

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 lawgivers and each one is facing one in the middle who is facing with a full frontal view, ..it is Moses and he is holding the 10 Commandments!

 

 

Which is a truism, ..Moses is the “center figure” and he is holding the stone tablets on which are inscribed the “Ten Commandments.”

What is “not” true, ..is that the two “Lawgivers” on either side of Moses, ..are also facing “fully” to the front, ..but then I suppose that the folks, (less than honest folks) that distribute (less than accurate information) ..believe that you will believe what they’ve written, ..instead of your own eyes?

Next “the” (forward) offers; …

As you enter the Supreme Court, ..there are two huge oak doors which are engraved with the “Ten Commandments.”

Also a Truism.

Question: Are you starting to get the picture?

The forward has an agenda, and that agenda is to acquaint the “unenlightened” ..or as I prefer to label them; “primitive frightened people,” with the fact that God is not a myth.

The forward also provides that there are Bible verses etched in stone all over the federal buildings and monuments in Washington D.C.

Question: Would our founding fathers or any decent patriotic American etch Bible verses in stone on our federal buildings and our federal monuments if God were a myth?

James Madison 

James Madison (March 16, 1751 – June 28, 1836) was the fourth (1809–1817) President of the United States. He was co-author, with John Jay and Alexander Hamilton, of the Federalist Papers, and is traditionally regarded as the Father of the United States Constitution.

Madison Quote: “A watchful eye must be kept on ourselves lest while we are building ideal monuments of Renown and Bliss here we neglect to have our names enrolled in the Annals of Heaven.”

The historian Garry Wills wrote:

“Madison’s claim on our admiration does not rest on a perfect consistency, any more than it rests on his presidency. He has other virtues…. As a framer and defender of the Constitution he had no peer…. The finest part of Madison’s performance as President was his concern for the preserving of the Constitution…. No man could do everything for the country – not even Washington. Madison did more than most, and did some things better than any. That was quite enough.

George F. Will, once wrote that if we truly believed that the pen is mightier than the sword, our nation’s capital would have been called “Madison, D.C.”, instead of Washington, D.C

Question: Would James Madison, ..the fourth president of the United States, ..known as “The Father of Our Constitution” have made the following statement if he was not completely confident that God was not a Myth;…

“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.”

It was Patrick Henry, ..a patriot, ..and Founding Father of our country who 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”.

Question: Would every session of Congress begin with a prayer by a minister, ..whose salary has been paid by the taxpayer since 1777, ..if God were a myth?

Question: Would 52 of our 55 founding fathers and signers of the Constitution have been members of the established orthodox churches in the colonies if God were a myth?

Historical fact: Thomas Jefferson worried (that without a strong foundation in God) that the Courts would overstep their authority and instead of “interpreting” the law, ..would begin making law… (an oligarchy)

According to Webster: ol·i·gar·chy, Government by a few, especially by a small faction of persons or families.

(Sidebar) if I were to offer a personal opinion? The current families that I might suggest were endeavoring to create an “Oligarchy” ..would be the Obama family, ..the Biden family, ..the Pelosi family, ..the Reid family, ..the Holder family, ..and so on, ..and so on…

Continuing…

 

Supreme Court Justice, John Jay 

The very first Supreme Court Justice, John Jay, said,…

“Americans should select and prefer Christians as their rulers.”

Which of course, by the “standards” of our “current” society, ..or, ..to be real, ..by the (lack of standards) ..in our current society, “John Jay” ..at a minimum would be crucified in the press, ..albeit, ..“in my considered opinion,” ..he would more likely be physically accosted on the street.

Editorial: I could go on all day providing representations of God’s foundation in America that would be acceptable to reasonable individuals. However, “at least in my opinion,” godless individuals are not reasonable people, ..thus to continue would be contrary to common sense, ..and as I pride myself on my capacity for common sense I’m going to leave you today with a thought from one of my favorite people; …

 “I want to know God’s thoughts; the rest are details.”

Albert Einstein.

Think about it, I’ll be back tomorrow
