    Did you know?

    Those of you who read this will be among the 14 % that do know.


    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 each 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.

    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?


    Chamber, US House of Representatives

    I was asked to send this on if I agreed or delete if I didn\'t. Now it is
    your turn...

    Lets put it around the world and let the world see and remember what
    this great country was built on.

    It is said that 86% of Americans believe in God. Therefore I have a very
    hard time understanding why there is such a mess about having the Ten
    Commandments on display or \"In God We Trust\" on our money and having God in
    the Pledge of Allegiance. Why don\'t we just tell the 14% to Sit Down and
    SHUT UP!!! or go back to their country to live.
