“Whatever strikes at the root of Christianity, tends manifestly to the dissolution of civil government”

American Minute with Bill Federer

For those who may not read these our posts regularly, I will repeat our contention that America is not a Christian Nation nor was it founded as such. HOWEVER, there can be no doubt it was founded upon Judeo-Christian principles.
