Our country was divinely guided to be founded on Christian principles and we must not allow nonbelievers and haters to destroy these ideals. These are great principles and values! You shouldn't kill, steal or lie. You should treat one another in a loving manner and help each other. Peace. How is this not wonderful?
Our forefathers didn't want our country to be like England, which was governed by the Church of England. That's why they asked for a separation between church and state.
For centuries, people have sought refuge on our shores and they were happy to get it.
We've moved over to accept many people who have different faiths to settle next door and that's good, but that doesn't mean we have to give up our principles, values or public prayers to make them comfortable. If we have prayer in all types of situations, it should be okay to do so.
Now we're having an attack on the Pledge of Allegiance. Where will it end? It's up to each and every one of us to speak up and not just let one or two people (yes, that's how it started) take away the basic foundation of our country.
