"Almighty God, we make our earnest prayer that Thou wilt keep the United States in Thy Holy protection: that Thou wilt incline the hearts of the citizens to cultivate a spirit of subordination and obedience to government and entertain a brotherly affection and love for one another and for their fellow citizens of the United States at large. And finally, that Thou wilt most graciously be pleased to dispose us all to do justice, to love mercy, and to demean ourselves with that charity, humility, and pacific temper of mind which were the characteristics of the Divine Author of our blessed religion, without a humble imitation of whose example in these things we can never hope to be a happy nation. Grant our supplication, we beseech Thee, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
**George Washington**"

That was good old George. Read the closing sentence.

""It is rightly impossible to govern the world without God and the Bible."
--George Washington"

George. And he mentions the Bible.

"You do well to wish to learn our arts and our ways of life, and above all, the religion of Jesus Christ."

George again.

I'm just using George as an example. 97% of our founding fathers were Christians. Unfortunetly, many books have been put out using quotes out of context, and have caused many to believe as you do.

Sam, KC2GWX
