Many ignorant of history

So many people think that the doctrine of separation of church and state is a true principle of the Constitution. If they will only do a little research on how our nation was founded, they will find they have not been given a proper education on our history.

We have reared two generations that have no knowledge of the French and Indian War, our War of Independence and the original intent of our founders when they created our Constitution.

Also, much of what transpired in the 1800s and 1900s has not been taught. We have become a nation of American history illiterates.
