Is America Christian?Written by Terry Dashner
“Hodgepodge of Thoughts about early America”……………………………….A short reading of facts
I was listening to a news program other night and I heard an alarming statement made by a “Reverend” who said that America was not founded as a Christian nation. I don’t know much about minister’s credentials other than what was flashed across screen. It seems he was a former employee of ACLU and was opposed to Christian emblems being placed on government property. He gave same old song and dance about “separation of church and state” (gag me) and need for America to sterilize her government agencies of Christian symbols. I was thinking about this absurdity this morning, and thought I would help set record straight. America was founded on Biblical principles and has been declared Christian by its institutions of law all way up to 1950s. Let me present some facts.
Fact: Terry Eastland, publisher of The Weekly Standard, has confirmed after his in-depth study of history of America. “Protestant Christianity has been our established religion in almost every sense of that phrase…The establishment of Protestant Christianity was one not only of law but also, and far more importantly, of culture. Protestant Christianity supplied nation with its ‘system of values.’” James Billington, Liberian of Congress, said in a news conference on opening of exhibit, “Religion and Founding of American Republic,” that “the dominant role religion played in earliest days of this country is largely ignored by media, academics, and others.”
Fact: In 1931 U.S. Supreme Court noted that United States is a Christian nation. In a mid-Atlantic summit with British Prime Minister Winston Churchill in darkest hours of World War II, President Roosevelt—who had described United States as “the lasting concord between men and nations, founded on principles of Christianity”—asked crew of an American warship to join him in a rousing chorus of hymn “Onward, Christian Soldiers.” President Woodrow Wilson, in his famous address, “The Bible and Progress,” delivered in Denver, Colorado, on May 7, 1911, told his audience that, “America was born a Christian nation. America was born to exemplify that devotion to elements of righteousness which are derived from revelation of Holy Scripture.” I might add that President Wilson was a devout Presbyterian.
PRINCE HARRY ... YOUR (IN)BREEDING IS SHOWING!Written by Jean Fritz
Harry, young Prince of Wales, recently dressed as a Nazi SS officer to attend a costume party. He caught hell for his foolishness and insensitivity in British press, and story made international headlines as well.
What makes this story ironic is that Adolf Hitler’s premise in building a “master race” hinged on theory of eugenics – pseudo-science of improving human race through judicious breeding in same way stock-keepers hybridize animals and botanists hybridize plants. Historically, royalty has such a strong history of inbreeding, with its concomitant genetic defects, that Harry and rest of royals would be high on Hitler’s hit list.
Prince Harry’s heritage is showing. His father, Prince Charles, has a history of doltish behavior and has never evidenced signs of good judgment or insight. Like his son, he appears oblivious to reactions of those around him; reading any of Diana’s biographies
