The progressive's obsession of justifying a secular society by denying the Judeo-Christian roots of our nation is blatantly absurd. This particular attempt at revising our history is a testimony that progressives will not be impeded by the facts. They just pound the lie into our minds through pseudo experts in the media, universities, and in our public schools. Eventually the historical lies became almost fact.

The only impediment to this propaganda is the actual words spoken by our founding leaders during the establishment of our nation. These learned men studied history and had the actual first hand experience of dealing with the oppression of the most powerful and corrupt political power at the time: Great Britain, headed by King George III.

These heroic men's words clearly stated that our constitutional republic can only be successful when its people are firmly grounded in religion and Christian, Judaic morals. They knew that citizens need strong virtues in an open and free society.
“We have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion.” John Adams
“Religion and morality are the essential pillars of civil society.” George Washington
“Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become corrupt and vicious they have more need of masters.” Benjamin Franklin
“Men, in a word, must necessarily be controlled by a power within them either by the word of God or the strong arm of men; either by the Bible or the bayonet.” Robert Winthrop

The evidence that colonial America in the late 1700s was a Christian nation led by men guided by Judaic Christian faith based belief system is undeniable and self evident. Most of our founding fathers came to America to practice their Christian religion without interference from government. Religious freedom in the new world was a primary motivation for the pilgrims forging a new life in uncivilized land.

The Pilgrims who arrived on the American shores were for the most part seeking religion and economic freedom. In 1607, Robert Hunt, an Anglican minister, founded Jamestown on the Virginia coast. The original charter for the Virginia colonies goal was the “propagating of Christian religion.” In 1620 the Mayflower established Plymouth colony, a faith based endeavor in what is today the State of Massachusetts. A third of the first arrivals on the Mayflower were of the Puritan sect know as Separatists. They separated from the Church of England and came to practice their religion freely. The Mayflower Compact contained the words, “in the Glory of God and the advancement of the Christian religious freedoms.”

There was not the slightest indicator that these men wanted to eliminate morals and faith from their daily lives. They came to live their beliefs. Roger Williams established a colony of faith in Rhode Island in 1640. He opened it to all religions for the belief that individuals have the right to practice their own faith. William Penn founded Pennsylvania Society of Friends, Quakers. George Calvert, Lord Baltimore, established Maryland as a haven for Catholics although Protestants made up a significant portion of the population. The Great Awakening was established by Jonathan Edwards in 1740s.

Our founding fathers were mostly of the Christian faith. Sam Adams was a devout Calvinist evangelist. His cousin, John Adams, stated he was a Christian. He was an independent thinker rather than a Deist or a Unitarian. There were amongst these principled men humanists, rationalists or deists but they were few in number in the Continental Congress. Almost all the delegates had been educated in Christian colleges and were influenced by general Christian principles. Our national monuments have inscriptions praising God and the majority of them prayed to God for guidance in making decisions.

Without these religious beliefs our Constitution would not be a Creator inspired document. It would just be another piece of paper written by ordinary men that would be readily altered for the benefit of the ruling class.

Judeo-Christian roots have nourished our soul as a nation. The only logical answer for these present progressive activist's attempt to rewrite a well documented history of the founding of America is to rip out its roots in order to transform it.

These radicals want an atheist secular society. They reasoned a country without religion would be more pliable to manipulate into a progressive nation.

The right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness could easily be erased as a right endowed by our Creator. The wall of separation between religion and governance can only make sense if these men did not have firmly ingrained morals and religion precepts.

The ridiculousness with the atheist progressive argument for a secular society is the fact that our founders were undeniably men who believed in the sanctity of the document they created.

America's survival as a nation depends on all citizens understanding our incredible blessings that have been derived from our daily practicing of the Word of God.
