Same week Congress approved First Amendment; it called for a National Day of Thanksgiving to Almighty God
The same week Congress approved the First Amendment, they requested President George Washington declare the United States’ First National Day of Thanksgiving and Prayer to Almighty God.
Obviously, they did not think the First Amendment that they just passed should outlaw prayer or God!
Generals & Presidents endorsed Bibles & Faith
And Congress too; how soon they forget!
A Joint Resolution of the 97th U.S. Congress proclaimed a “Year of the Bible,” signed by Democrat Speaker of the House Tip O’Neil and Republican President of the Senate Strom Thurmond.
