“Go to thy bosum, knock there, and ask thy heart what it doth know.” That’s one of my favorite quotes from Shakespeare. The last time I knocked, my heart doth told me that this truly is a Christian country. But wait, I thought. People have been telling us this just isn’t true, haven’t they? Teachers. Politicians. Friends. “But,” my heart kept saying, “Do you really believe that? Why don’t you check it out?” So, that’s what I’ve been doing. After all, I don’t want some despotic Christian politician forcing me or anyone to become Christian. That’s a personal choice. So, I looked at our founders and their documents and their actionsl. Hmmmmm. There were about 208 of them. The ones who were active with founding events and things like: the constitution, the articles of confederation, the bill of rights, the declaration of independence, members of the first Congress. Hmmmmm. All but two were documented to be Christian. Many were pastors and ministers. Most were educated in Christian schools and colleges. And they put God in the documents. Plain as day. First country in the world to have our Creator listed in the documents. Hmmmmm. Now, who do you suppose they were talking about? Buddha? The Aztec Sun God? Allah? No. No. No. It was their God. The God of the Bible. And, did they force anyone to become Christian? No. No. No. They said they did NOT HAVE THE RIGHT to create laws pertaining to religion. Hmmmmm. And, when they realized they were bickering too much, they finally called upon their faith and started the tradition of having prayer before the legislative sessions began. And what did George Washington say in his outgoing address to the nation? He said that we need religion and morality in politics. Not a Christian nation you say? If you believe that . . . I’ve got a great bridge I’d like to sell you.
