…and cencors when people talked about God.
I think this kind of crap is absolutely ridiculous.
History is history.
Cencoring it doesn’t do anything but confuse the facts.
Besides, cencoring anything religous is exactly what communist countries do! What next, no freedom of religion?
REAL seperation of church and state means that church does not run the state, but ALSO that the government cannot run, cencor, or control religion or religous refrences. It works both ways.
It makes me sad that people are willing to do that to fill an agenda.
Truth is truth. Facts are facts. People have the right to free speech and freedom of religion.
And I agree with the sunshine comment below. 🙂 That is cool!
Thanks for passing this on, Zipper! 🙂
The newest federal structure (scheduled to open in just a few months) is
the Capitol Visitor Center – a massive underground facility that spans
more area than the Capitol itself. It will acquaint some 15,000 visitors
each day – including thousands of school children – with the 200 year
history of the Capitol as well as its current content and operation.
However, the new Visitor Center has deliberately censored mentions of
God from both the Capitol’s historical and current aspects.
For example, in presenting the Northwest Ordinance of 1787, Visitor
Center officials actually deleted the words “religion and morality” from
the document. And in presenting images of the current Speaker’s Rostrum
in the House Chamber, they deliberately omitted the phrase “In God We
Trust” from its prominent location engraved in marble above the
Speaker’s head. There are many other examples. No wonder a congressman
has dubbed it the “$600 million dollar godless pit.”
But not only does the Center censor God and religion from America’s
history but it also contains basic historical errors about the war of
1812, the Bill of Rights, the constitutional separation of powers, and
many other simple topics.
For nearly five years, I have been working with many Members of Congress
in monitoring the content and displays within the Center. Initially,
those Members were able to correct bad information in the Center, but in
the last two years under the new congressional leadership, there has
been a real reversal in the willingness of Visitor Center officials to
make changes. Therefore, it is now time to get the public involved.
Former Secretary of Education Bill Bennett stated that “Sunlight is the
best disinfectant,” and he is right. The link below will show you what
is occurring in this new federal structure and what you can do to help
us get things changed.
Thanks for your help on this important issue! God bless!
