Contrary to many, the phrase “Separation of Church and State” is not in the Constitution. However, it does clearly state “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof.” Our Country was not founded to remove Faith, Religion or the Belief in GOD but rather to prohibit the Government from forcing any one religion on its citizens. Clearly, the belief that there is a higher power besides our own is a true foundation of our Nation. Even to this day it is still seen on our money “In GOD We Trust”. Another example is when we take an oath of office or are sworn to tell the truth we say, “So Help Me GOD”, sometimes with a hand on the Bible. We still honor America with the Pledge of Allegiance and the phrase “One Nation Under GOD”, etc. Our Nation was founded on the belief that GOD is more powerful than man and that we should look to GOD for guidance and support. Faith in GOD is different from a national religion. I challenge all History/ Government Teachers & Professors to teach the true meaning of what the Constitution says about our Nation’s belief in GOD. Maybe our future generations will pray more, pray in public, and not be afraid to talk about GOD without fear of lawsuits. America can lead the rest of the world in showing the importance of living what GOD teaches and maybe, just maybe, there can be peace both here and abroad.

I pray to our flag everyday..(One stands proud at both places..home & work.) Every child should respect a daily tradition..every adult chooses. MAGA. 👍🇺🇸😀
