The Greatest American Christmas Fable
We have all heard the Christmas fables of Santa, Rudolph, and Frosty; but there is another fable so often repeated that people actually believe it to be true. The phase “separation of church and state” has been routinely used by liberals and the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), which is an organization established by self-proclaimed Communist Roger Baldwin, to “suppress” Christianity and the Judeo-Christian foundation and influence of America through a godless revolution that removes God from government and Christ from Christmas. This phrase is not even part of the U.S. Constitution. The phase “separation of church and state” was first written by President Thomas Jefferson in a letter to the Baptist Association of Danbury in Connecticut. The founding fathers did not want a government run by a particular religion, as in the “Church of England,” where people could not worship freely. Therefore, a separation was intended to protect government from control by a religion and to protect religion from control by government, not to build a confrontational wall to keep government and religion separated.
Imagine, if you will, the liberals and ACLU, revisiting American Christmas Past like Scrooge did in “A Christmas Carol”. There, they would find American Patriots, presidents, and the founding fathers on bent knees praying to God. The liberals and ACLU would have objected to President Ulysses S. Grant declaring Christmas as a legal federal holiday in 1870, recognizing the Christian birth of Christ. They would have thrown a fit at President Abraham Lincoln’s Thanksgiving Proclamation for “the gracious gifts of the Most High God” and “Praise to our beneficent Father who dwelleth in the Heavens”. They would have objected to the Declaration of Independence statement that all men have been “endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights”. They would have complained when the U.S. Constitution was signed “in the year of our Lord” 1787, after the Treaty of Paris was signed in 1783, ending the Revolutionary War, with the documented writing, “in the name of the Holy and undivided Trinity” (God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit).
They would have filed a legal brief against congress for bringing in a minister for prayer and approving the purchase of 20,000 copies of scripture for the people of this nation. Once in court, they would have become upset as the United States Supreme Court in 1892 declared, “This is a Christian nation,” and “Our laws and our institutions must necessarily be based upon the teachings of the Redeemer of Mankind. It is impossible that it should be otherwise; and in this sense, and to this extent, our civilization and our institutions are emphatically Christian.”
The liberals and ACLU would continue to lose as “In God We Trust” is placed on our currency and “one nation under God” is placed in our Pledge of Allegiance. References to God would be engraved on numerous national monuments including “Praise be to God” on the Washington Monument, “In God We Trust” on the U.S. Capital and images of Moses with the Ten Commandments on the U.S. Supreme Court.
History shows that George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, Benjamin Franklin, John Adams, and many of our other founding fathers established America as a Christian nation. The liberals and ACLU would have told George Washington himself that he was wrong when he said, “It is the duty of all nations to acknowledge the Providence of Almighty God, to obey His will, to be grateful for His benefits, and to humbly implore His protection and favor.” George Washington, October 3, 1789, who not only started the tradition of being sworn in as president with a Bible, but who knelt down and kissed the Bible. President George Washington later said, “It is impossible to rightly govern a nation without God and the Bible.”
Through the years, Communists have coordinated an effort to destroy both Christianity and Capitalism in America through a 45 point plan, which was read into the Congressional Record on January 10, 1963. Point 28-30 recorded the removal of “religious expression” through a “separation of church and state” and a guide to “discredit the American Constitution” and “discredit the American founding fathers”. Through this guide of fables and lies, the liberals, communists, and ACLU team of lawyers and rogue judges have rewritten history to remove God from our government and Christ from Christmas ignoring several hundred documented quotes and writings of our founding fathers to bring us to their “godless revolution”.
President Dwight Eisenhower and, later, President Gerald Ford stated, “Without God there can be no American form of government nor an American way of life. Recognition of a Supreme Being is the first impression of Americanism. Thus, the founding fathers saw it, and thus, with God’s help, it will continue to be.”
Today, Americans have been led to believe the lies and fable of the phrase “separation of church and state” courtesy of a coordinated communist effort to create the greatest American Christmas fable.
