John Bunyan’s Pilgrim’s Progress – “The monster was hideous to behold…scales…wings like a dragon, feet like a bear…out of his belly came fire & smoke”


John Bunyan 

What would it be like to be imprisoned by your government for 12 years just for preaching the Gospel?¹

This was the fate of John Bunyan, author of the world renown book Pilgrim’s Progress.

American Minute(s) with Bill Federer

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.


Call to Pray by Sam Adams “Father of American Revolution”

Despite the lies that revisionists try and push, America was founded upon Judeo-Christian principles, and right now we need to pray for God to raise up those principles; for I fear for the generation of my grandchildren and beyond. – Mike

Call to Pray by Sam Adams – “Father of American Revolution” 

“Bow the knee in prayer to the Almighty, whose assistance they hoped to obtain”


…Samuel Adams called for the first Continental Congress.
When it first met, September 6, 1774, he proposed that it be opened with prayer, despite the delegates being of different Christian denominations which did not always get along:
“It did not become men, professing to be Christian men, who had come together for solemn deliberation in the hour of their extremity, to say there was so wide a difference in their religious belief that they could not, as one man, bow the knee in prayer to the Almighty, whose advice and assistance they hoped to obtain.”

“Establishment Clause must be interpreted by reference to historical practices & understandings”

I have repeatedly and will continue to say that America is NOT a “Christian Nation.” If we were we would be a Theocracy, ruled by God, instaed the Founding Fathers decided on a new experiment in rule, so we are a Republic. However for those who would invoke the non-existent separation of church and state clause, we were founded upon, guided by and designed to follow Judaeo-Christian laws and principles.

First Prayer in Congress, September 1774, “Establishment Clause must be interpreted by reference to historical practices & understandings”-Supreme Court, Galloway

“It was enough to melt a heart of stone,” remarked John Adams after the First Prayer in Congress.

MLK, Jr. “We must NOT allow protest to DEGENERATE into physical VIOLENCE”

American Minute with Bill Federer

MLK, Jr. “We must NOT allow our creative protest to DEGENERATE into physical VIOLENCE”

“I have a dream … where little black boys and black girls will be able to join hands with little white boys and white girls and walk together as sisters and brothers,”
stated Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., August 28, 1963, at the Civil Rights March in Washington, D.C.


“What then is the spirit of liberty?”-Judge Learned Hand

“I often wonder whether we do not rest our hopes too much upon constitutions, upon laws and upon courts. These are false hopes; believe me, these are false hopes.

Liberty lies in the hearts of men and women; when it dies there, no constitution, no law, no court can even do much to help it …

And what is this liberty which must lie in the hearts of men and women?

It is not the ruthless, the unbridled will; it is not freedom to do as one likes. That is the denial of liberty, and leads straight to its overthrow.” 


American Minute with Bill Federer


Judge Learned Hand “What then is the spirit of liberty?”


“A conservative among liberals, and a liberal among conservatives,”

he was not consistently conservative enough for Republican President Warren G. Harding and he was not consistently liberal enough for Democrat President Franklin Roosevelt.

As a result, he was passed over several times to be a nominee for the U.S. Supreme Court…


America “the BEST form of government which has EVER been offered to the WORLD”

To all the “protesters” a.k.a rioters and those causing chaos in America the following article is a history lesson that you obviously never got or slept through in school. If you still feel like America “sucks” there are many who will gladly help you pack your bags to leave if you refuse to sit down for a civil, ethical and moral conversation about practical constitutional changes.

America “the BEST form of government which has EVER been offered to the WORLD”-Justice James Wilson

James Wilson stated in Pennsylvania’s statehouse yard, October 6, 1787, regarding the U.S. Constitution:
“I will confess, indeed, that I am not a blind admirer of this plan of government …
But when I reflect how widely men differ in their opinions … I am satisfied that anything nearer to perfection could not have been accomplished.
If there are errors, it should be remembered that … the concurrence of two-thirds of the Congress may at any time introduce alterations and amendments.
Regarding it, then … I am bold to assert that it is the best form of government which has ever been offered to the world.”

“America, America, God Shed His Grace On Thee”

American Minute with Bill Federer


“America, America, God Shed His Grace On Thee” – 50 States acknowledged God “from sea to shining sea”

“O Beautiful, For Spacious Skies, For Amber Waves of Grain …”

Almost chosen as the National Anthem in 1926, “America the Beautiful” was written by Katherine Lee Bates, born AUGUST 12, 1859…

…God shed His grace from sea to shining sea, as all 50 states, at some time in their state’s history, have acknowledged God somewhere in their state’s constitution:


War on Prayer by Atheists, Socialists, & Communists

American Minute with Bill Federer


A generation ago, President Bill Clinton stated at James Madison High School, July 12, 1995:
“The First Amendment does not require students to leave their religion at the schoolhouse door..”


The war on prayer by progressive lawyers and judges has imited mandatory” school-sponsored prayer, but students still have the right to “voluntarily” pray!

American Minute with Bill Federer


“AN APPEAL TO HEAVEN” -Origins of U.S. Navy, Marines, & Coast Guard “We’ll carry on ’til Kingdom Come, Ideals for which we’ve died”

“Appealing to Heaven for the justice of our cause, we determine to die or be free.”  


The Massachusetts Navy flew a similar Liberty Tree Flag, with the line “An Appeal to God.”
