    A Virginia Republican congressman says House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-California) and veteran Senator Robert Byrd (D-West Virginia) are allowing the new $621 million Visitor Center for the U.S. Capitol to become a "shrine to political correctness" that omits the significant role Christian faith played in the founding of the U.S. government.



    The Capitol Visitor Center (CVC) in Washington, D.C., is currently under construction but scheduled to open in December to an estimated 15,000 people a day. Virginia Representative Randy Forbes contends the exhibits displayed in the Visitor Center contain few and factually inaccurate references to the nation's religious heritage.

    This is what you get when you get "progressives" (socialists) in power. :tear:

    Not really.

    FTR, I think that if anything such as is mentioned in the article is being deleted in the mock-up of the House of Representatives then it should be restored.

    No, that is a fantasy in the minds of some conservatives.

    If anyone is interested in facts, I would suggest reading Christianity and the Constitution by John Eidsmoe. Excellent book with a multitude of sourced material proving the biblical foundation of the United States.

    For example, ever heard the idea that the founders were deists? Here are some facts:

    28 Episcopalians
    8 Presbyterians
    7 Congregationalists
    2 Lutherans
    2 Dutch Reformed
    2 Methodists
    2 Roman Catholics
    3 Deists

    Deism was not the religion of our founding fathers. Only 3 out of 55 delegates were deists, or 5.5%
