DID YOU KNOW?

This is an email that I received that I thought I would share. Usually I dont get into the email jokes and stories thing, but this one made me think.

DID YOU KNOW?
As you walk up the steps to the building which houses the U.S. Supreme
Court you can see near the top of the building a row of the world's law
givers and each one is facing one in the middle who is facing forward
with a full frontal view - it is Moses and he is holding the Ten
Commandments!

DID YOU KNOW?
As you enter the Supreme Court courtroom, the two huge oak doors have
the Ten Commandments engraved on the lower portion of each door.

DID YOU KNOW?
As you sit inside the courtroom, you can see the wall, right above where
the Supreme Court judges sit, a display of the Ten Commandments!

DID YOU KNOW?
There are Bible verses etched in stone all over the Federal Buildings
and Monuments in Washington, D.C.

DID YOU KNOW?
James Madison, the fourth president, known as "The Father of Our
Constitution" made the following statement: "We have staked the
whole of all our political institutions upon the capacity of mankind for
self-government, upon the capacity of each and all of us to govern
ourselves, to control ourselves, to sustain ourselves according to the
Ten Commandments of God."

DID YOU KNOW?
Patrick Henry, that patriot and Founding Father of our country said,
"It cannot be emphasized too strongly or too often that this great
nation was founded not by religionists but by Christians, not on
religions but on the Gospel of Jesus Christ".

DID YOU KNOW?
Every session of Congress begins with a prayer by a paid preacher,
whose salary has been paid by the taxpayer since 1777.

DID YOU KNOW?
Fifty-two of the 55 founders of the Constitution were members of the
established orthodox churches in the colonies.

DID YOU KNOW?
Thomas Jefferson worried that the Courts would overstep their authority
and instead of interpreting the law would begin making law....an
oligarchy.......the rule of few over many.

DID YOU KNOW?
The very first Supreme Court Justice, John Jay, said, "Americans
should select and prefer Christians as their rulers."

How, then, have we gotten to the point that everything we have done for
220 years in this country is now suddenly wrong and unconstitutional?

Good one! I've actually heard some of these before. You gotta love that Thomas Jefferson. His words (and fears) seem almost quite prophetic now, huh?
