    I got this in a email today and I wanted to share it with you.
    your sister in Christ,


    As you walk up the steps to the Capitol Building which houses the Supreme
    Court you can see near the top of the building a row of the world's law
    givers and each one is facing one in the middle who is facing forward with
    a full frontal view - it is Moses and the Ten Commandments!

    As you enter the Supreme Court courtroom, the two huge oak doors have the
    Ten Commandments engraved on each lower portion of each door. As you sit
    inside the courtroom, you can see the wall, right above where the Supreme
    Court judges sit, a display of the Ten Commandments!

    There are Bible verses etched in stone all over the Federal Buildings and
    Monuments in Washington, D.C.

    James Madison, the fourth president, known as "The Father of Our
    Constitution" made the following statement "We have staked the whole of
    all our political institutions upon the capacity of mankind for
    self-government, upon the capacity of each and all of us to govern
    ourselves, to control ourselves, to sustain ourselves according to the Ten
    Commandments of God."

    Patrick Henry, that patriot and Founding Father of our country said, "It
    cannot be emphasized too strongly or too often that this great nation was
    founded not by religionists but by Christians, not on religions but on the
    Gospel of Jesus Christ".

    Every session of Congress begins with a prayer by a paid preacher, whose
    salary has been paid by the taxpayer since 1777.

    Fifty-two of the 55 founders of the Constitution were members of the
    established orthodox churches in the colonies.

    Thomas Jefferson worried that the Courts would overstep their authority
    and instead of interpreting the law would begin making law....an
    oligarchy....the rule of few over many.

    The very first Supreme Court Justice, John Jay, said, "Americans should
    select and prefer Christians as their rulers."

    How, then, have we gotten to the point that everything we have done for
    220 years in this country is now suddenly wrong and unconstitutional?
