What You Won’t See at the State of the Union


Pages: 1 2

We have been led to believe that America is supposed to be a secular country. But that was never the case. We were founded to be a God-centered, God-based country with a nondenominational government. And that is what those chiseled words affirm.

Yet millions of Americans — religious and secular alike — would be stunned to see what every member of the House sees almost every working day.

When I mentioned this to some congressman after I addressed the Republican members of the House two weeks ago, they told me that just as remarkable is the fact that when the president is speaking in the House chamber, he is facing a giant sculpted image of Moses holding the Ten Commandments.

Imagine how this scene would go over in American homes — behind the president of the United States are the words “In God We Trust,” and in front of him is Moses carrying the Ten Commandments.

This would astound and even confuse an America raised to believe that the words “separation of church and state” are in the Constitution, that those words prohibit the government from acknowledging even a nondenominational God and that no speaker at any public high school graduation ceremony may say “God bless this graduating class.”

That is why, I am convinced, no camera tonight will give you a long or wide view of the president. It might change more than Americans’ views of the presidential rostrum. It might change Americans’ views of America.

    I would not watch that idiot speak tonight if they paid me. Anything that comes out of his piehole is a lie.

    A very interesting comment about obviously forgotten American history. Too bad you didn't have an actual image linked showing "In God We Trust" emblazened about the U.S. House well because now, of course, they'll say that this is some creation of your imagination.

    Thank you for the reminder. This nation is ripe for God's judgment.

    All the gutless RINOs will once again cross the aisle to sit with Deceitocrats in a "let us all get along fest" and bull propaganda will roll off Chairman Obama's tongue much like green apple splatters from an a$$ and the mainstream media will once again sing praises of "Oh come let us adore him" as he really is our Black Messiah – and in reality unemployment will rise to almost 10% next month.

    I will not watch this lying Marxist for one minute giving his State of the Union Address. He tore up the country in the last two years and since last November is being conciliatory only because that's what a wounded politician does. He will appear slightly ruffled since losing the House, and come next election will position himself slightly more to the center. He is hoping to win for more years to finish with his plan of demolition. Why is it that he has promised today to stop spending for 5 years? That's because he's hoping he can spend his last year of a second term dealing our country the death blow. I despise this thing that we have in office; I hope Providence will spare us and he'll be gone, one way or another, in 2012.

    That's very interesting. Every day they can't help but see not only "In God We Trust," but The Ten Commandments held by a statue of the man who delivered them from God (the same author of our rights, and the reason they're unalienable). I bet that really bugs some democrats and that's why they were so insistent they be banned from all other government buildings and property, and happy when they were. Are any other government buildings allowed to display The Ten Commandments?

    I think you're right, that with many, if not most msm types their bias is the result of conditioning combined with the fact they're human.

    "We were founded to be a God-centered, God-based country with a nondenominational government". So where does it say that? In the constitution? It seems unlikely a group of men with classical educations, influenced by the enlightenment and the religious wars of Europe (The English civil war for example) still recent, would in their fight for liberty be particularly anxious to tell citizens what to do about religion or encourage it one way or another. It does not seem to figure prominently in the founding documents so one wonders how the author can conclude as he does, citing no evidence to do so. I don't think they were atheists (for the most part) but rather thought religion a matter of personal conscience and private. The opposite of supporting some public affirmation.
