THE AMERICAN DREAM: "NEVER HAVE SO FEW STOLEN SO MUCH FROM SO MANY"

Without approval of Congress or public opinion, a few unauthorized

individuals have blatantly changed the spiritual concept of our Nation’s legal

system and erased its’ religious heritage.


A few years ago a pastor and his wife visited Washington, D.C, and, among

other sites, visited the United States Supreme Court. Standing inside, they

gazed upward at the magnificent marble sculpture of Moses holding the Ten

Commandments. There is no mistaking the significance of this massive

artwork by Jewish artist-sculptor Adolph A. Weinman. The pastor knew the

sculpture’s history. As he and his wife stood admiring it, what startled them

was the guide’s explanation of its’ meaning. She said, "Between the images of

the people depicting the Majesty of the Law and Power of Government

(Moses), there is a tablet with ten Roman numerals, the first five down the left

side and the last five down the right (the Ten Commandments). She went on,

"This tablet represents the first ten amendments, or what we call "The Bill of

Rights." The pastor was shocked at her ignorance! The ten amendments?

What happened to the Ten Commandments?! He couldn’t believe his ears.

The Commandments were gone. Replaced by "amendments." Who authorized

such a sweeping change? When confronted about the alteration, the guide

knew nothing of Moses and the Law of God--or the carvings’ original

meaning. She was merely repeating what she had been told to say.


The substitution of "amendments" for Commandments was not implemented

by Congress and democratically-made choices of the American people but by

a small minority whose names remain hidden and faces unrecognized.


Hear this: The voice of the people had been silently replaced by an

unidentified few. Mentally, make a quick trip to Russia and the replacement of

government by a small mob. The same thing had happened in America. In

contrast, James Madison, a chief contributor to the Constitution, explained the

Document’s relationship to God: "We have staked the whole future of

American civilization, not upon the power of government but upon the

capacity of each and all of us to govern ourselves according to the Ten

Commandments of God." In 1892, the United States Supreme Court declared,

"Our laws and institutions must necessarily be based upon the teachings of the

Redeemer of mankind." Today that attitude has changed. A few private

individuals have taken it upon themselves to correct the Supreme Court and

Madison’s erroneous ideas.


This kind of political deceit is not new. Hear me: In parts of the old Soviet

Union less than 5% of the population were card-carrying Communists--but

they forced total control over the 95%. In the United States approximately 5%

of the population are atheist. Yet this 5% are aggressively forcing control over

the 95% and stripping the U.S. of its’ religious freedom and national heritage.

The ACLU–American Civil Liberties Union–is leader in that effort.


Instead of banning references to God in government, the writers of both the

Declaration Of Independence and the Constitution urgently encouraged the

people to call upon Divine Providence. The Constitutional Convention was


failing until Benjamin Franklin rose and urged the men to pray. Every

President since has sought the Nation’s prayers. This was the concept imbued

into both historic documents--the Declaration and Constitution--and was the

attitude the Founding Fathers expected of all future generations. To deny that

obvious truth is to resort to fraudulence and deceit. But, the 5% are doing that.


Our Founding Fathers did not leave us without guidance as to their intent for

the merging of civil and religious matters in American life. Today, these men

are being replaced by traitors to the cause of freedom. Our forefathers clearly

expressed their position in the Declaration of Independence when they said:

"And for the support of this declaration, with a firm Reliance on the Protection

of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our lives, and

Fortunes and our sacred Honor." When the U.S. Supreme Court building was

constructed with Moses and the Ten Commandments given the most

prominent position, it was with the full blessing of Congress.


President John Quincy Adams explained, "Our Constitution is designed only

for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate for the government

of any other." He went on to say, "The highest glory of the American

Revolution was this: It connected, in one indissoluble bond, the principles of

civil government with the principles of Christianity." Of the Declaration of

Independence, he declared: "It laid the cornerstone of human government

upon the first precepts of Christianity." Note the expression "indissoluble

bond." Where do the 10% get support for their position? Not from the

Constitution or its authors. It comes from their self-centered deceitfulness to

ignore the will of the masses, to suppress the 90% majority and accommodate

their own egoistic ways. How is their tactic different from the tactic of

Communism’s 5%? There is no difference. Were the men aliv
