Defining America’s Exceptionalism
Many pastors I have spoken with have no problem with the so-called “separation of church and state” and have even told me that it was in our Constitution. Because we no longer teach our Constitution in our schools and we, the pastors, do not teach the importance of who we are and where we came from, we have come to the point where we believe what we are told by academia concerning our Founding Fathers and the Constitution and have been led down a path of falsehoods and deception.
Our Founding Fathers knew that there was to be involvement by the church and allowed the influence of Christianity to be prevalent. The only “separation of church and state” that the founders wanted was an institutional separation. They designed our Constitution so that the government would have no say whatsoever in the exercise of religion by the people. Today’s government has turned that around 180 degrees and is now using what used to guarantee freedom of religion to the removal of religion from the public square.
Will we let it continue?
