After reviewing acknowledgments of God from all 50 state constitutions, one is faced with the prospect that maybe, the ACLU and the out-of-control federal courts are wrong!  If you found this to be ‘Food for thought’ send to as many as you think will be enlightened as I hope you were. 

(Please note that at no time is anyone told that they MUST worship God.) 

GOD BLESSAMERICA !

At 3.79 million square miles and with over 310 million people, the United States is the fourth largest country by total area, and the third largest both by land area and population. Its capital is Washington D.C.*

Religion: The United States is officially a secular nation. In 2007 Protestants of all denominations numbered more than 100 million; Catholics, 67 million; and Jews, 6 million. The Islamic faith also has about 6 million U.S. adherents, many of whom are African-American converts. Buddhism and Hinduism are growing with the arrival of immigrants from countries where these are the majority religions.*

Watchwoman: I think from reading the Preamble to all the 50 states that what is written at a web site where I got the map of the USA from saying the US is a secular nation(*) is NOT the way it was before the ACLU and other atheists, anti-God humanists, anti-Christians, anti-religious got the upperhand here.  Let’s take our country back for God!  Let us be doers of the word!  [James 1:22] But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves.  ▬  Donna Calvin

WE MUST TAKE AMERICA BACK
