Changing History to Deny Prayer, Part 1

Posted by on Jul 2, 2012 in Military Prayer | Comments Off on Changing History to Deny Prayer, Part 1

Last year in a frivolous litigation, a small group of atheists tried to prevent the Kentucky legislature from passing a Homeland Security Act that acknowledges our dependence upon Almighty God.  Even the most elementary history lesson would prove Kentucky’s office of Homeland Security to be simply affirming the Preamble to our State Constitution and America’s birth Certificate, the Declaration of Independence.

We the People are part of a proud Kentucky historic tradition to acknowledge the Providence of Almighty God in the affairs of our nation, an act that has been carried out by every president in every inaugural address since the founding of America.  The core issue being attacked by these atheist groups is whether official American history, which reveals why America has always been “One Nation Under God.” America’s official National Motto is “In God We Trust,” and if it continues to be censored could be eventually eliminated because of the references to God, Divine Providence, prayer, or our dependence on God’s favor.  Exactly what is it that these atheist groups are attacking?

America’s official documents of American Civil government include:

  • The Declaration of Independence,

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness;

  • America’s National Motto “In God We Trust” adopted by Congress on July 20th, 1956, which has been unsuccessfully challenged by the ACLU on similar grounds at least five times;
  • The Preamble to the Constitution of Kentucky,

We, the people of the Commonwealth of Kentucky, grateful to Almighty God for the civil, political and religious liberties we enjoy, and invoking the continuance of these blessings, do ordain and establish this Constitution;

  • The Mayflower Compact establishing the first “civil body politic” on November 11, 1620which states, 

“In the name of God, Amen. We, whose names are underwritten, the Loyal Subjects of our dread Sovereign Lord, King James, by the Grace of God, of England, France and Ireland, King, Defender of the Faith, e&. Having undertaken for the Glory of God, and Advancement of the Christian Faith, and the Honour of our King and Country, a voyage to plant the first colony in the northern parts of Virginia; do by these presents, solemnly and mutually in the Presence of God and one of another, covenant and combine ourselves together into a civil Body Politick…”

  • Acknowledging our dependence upon Divine Providence for the protection of our citizens is an official act of American Statesmen, and has nothing to do with creating or supporting a religion.

By the device used here – converting the foundations of American law and civil government into church or religious documents – atheist groups claimed these official American documents somehow became “religious,” and thus violated the “establishment clause” of the First Amendment, thus the entire legislative body of elected officials by the people of the Commonwealth of Kentucky should be silenced due to the alleged mental anguish of one citizen who does not like America’s National Motto nor want to accept the protection of God over the Commonwealth.

U.S. Senator Jim Bunning issued a warning in The Kentucky Post on July 29, 2000.  “Beware America,” he said;

…we just finished celebrating our nation’s 224th birthday on July 4th, Kentuckians in three counties have been ordered by the federal judiciary to regard the Declaration of Independence, The Congressional Record, and other sensitive parts of our history as offensive to the constitution.

Based on subterfuge, the founding history of law and civil government have been declared “religion” and therefore, must be separated from the state.   Forces denying that America is “One Nation under God” have succeeded for 60 years in reinterpreting the Constitution in the courts and in censoring our history of government’s relationship to the “Creator.”  Recently, the justices have claimed that it is their right to change the Constitution’s meaning to fit a changing society.  In order for these revolutionaries to redefine America, they must rid America of her inconvenient history, beginning with our Declaration of Independence, which declares a “firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence,” and the words of every President’s inaugural address which acknowledges God’s Divine Providence in American history.
