Seperation of Church and State is the law that the STATE CAN NOT tell anyone how they exercise their beliefs. Facts prove that the major majority of
all the founding fathers were very deep and astute in faith. Read their historical speeches. Here is one from George Washington's first inaguration
speech on April 30, 1789 at Federal Hall which is now St. Pauls's Chapel in New York:
"Such being the impressions under which I have
, in obedience to the public summons, repaired to the present station; it would be peculiarly
improper to omit in this first official Act, my fervent supplications to that Almighty Being who rules over the Universe, who presides in the
Councils of Nations, and whose providential aids can supply every human defect, that his benediction may consecrate to the liberties and happiness of
the People of the United States, a Government instituted by themselves for these essential purposes: and may enable every instrument employed in its
administration to execute with success, the functions allotted to his charge.
In tendering this homage to the Great Author of every public and
private good I assure myself that it expresses your sentiments not less than my own; nor those of my fellow-citizens at large, less than either. No
People can be bound to acknowledge and adore the invisible hand, which conducts the Affairs of men more than the People of the United States. Every
step, by which they have advanced to the character of an independent nation, seems to have been distinguished by some token of providential agency.
And in the important revolution just accomplished in the system of their United Government, the tranquil deliberations and voluntary consent of so
many distinct communities, from which the event has resulted, cannot be compared with the means by which most Governments have been established,
without some return of pious gratitude along with an humble anticipation of the future blessings which the past seem to presage. These reflections,
arising out of the present crisis, have forced themselves too strongly on my mind to be suppressed. You will join with me I trust in thinking, that
there are none under the influence of which, the proceedings of a new and free Government can more auspiciously commence."
This was the first act of our first president of our once great country. Our founding fathers had it right. We need to give the glory to God in the
first thing we do at all times!
