Inspiration poetry
After reviewing acknowledgments of God from all 50 state constitutions, one is faced with the prospect that maybe, just maybe, the ACLU and the out-of-control federal courts are wrong!

 

"Those people who will not be governed by God will be ruled by tyrants."- William Penn

The Constitutional quotes listed in this article say it all.  I don't think anyone can say it better.  (Ye shall know the truth and the truth will make you free)

Excellent.  Valuable information that all Americans should be acquainted with.  I would like to see a printable version of the "Could 50 States Be Wrong".

Wonderful testimony that our founding fathers knew God personally!
