U.S. founded on religion

A Supreme Court decision in 1892 declared: "Our laws and our institutions must necessarily be based upon and embody the teachings of the Redeemer of mankind. It is impossible that it should be otherwise; and in this sense and to this extent: our civilization and our institutions are emphatically Christian."

This is a religious people. From the discovery of this continent to the present hour, there is a single voice making this affirmation. All thinking people recognize that, by following this ideology, the government of the United States created the greatest political power in the world and created the greatest society known in secular history for individual peace, happiness and prosperity. For the last 50 years the Supreme Court has departed too often from this superior ideology in their decisions. This has resulted in the chaos and breakdown in family and society that is horribly obvious to all.

For this country to truly remain the world leader, there must be a return to the fundamental ideology that made it so. Our Constitution is based on the Ten Commandments. After the filming of the movie "Ten Commandments," Cecil B. DeMille proclaimed, "We cannot break the Ten Commandments; we can only break ourselves against them." This nation is now well into breaking itself against them. Will there be correction before it is too late?
