In writing this and using the book flag of the United States by Moss for my reference, I want to point out a few things to the ones who contend that our Constitution was made without God.
The stars put on our flag was a signal to mankind the birth of a nation dedicated to personal and religious liberty, thus "life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness." This was a congressional act June 14, 1777.
Even before this, the second congress on July 4, 1776 adopted Declaration of Independence, the laws of nature and of nature's God. We hold these truths to be self-evident that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
One of our rights is the free exercise of religious belief. I have my opinion this freedom has been abused by taking God from our public schools and prayer at our sporting events. Thus, you have four decades of young school children who, in general, don't go to church and have no spiritual knowledge of Jesus. I blame the Supreme Court for this decision.
Here is Washington's prayer that's illuminated at Valley Forge: 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. Thus a loving God who forgives all who confess to Jesus.
The ending of this prayer asks that we have justice, love in mercy, charity, humility, pacific temper in our blessed religion without humble imitation, through Jesus Christ, our Lord. So, I have the opinion that our 56 signers and from the 13 walks of life were of the majority state of mind that God through the son, Jesus Christ, was the reason for these United States of America. In God I trust!
