Faith based programs v. People in SCOTUS

I have mixed emotions about this, and that is a bad way look at this. It should not be looked at emotionally but Constitutionally. What does the Constitution say?

Well, President Thomas Jefferson used Federal dollars to buy Bibles to teach the Indians our Language and culture. Culture used to be known as Christianity. They were intertwined. Starting with President Washington, the Bible was the first and only text available for a long time.

It was important for a person to learn to read and write, and this was the purpose of using the Bible. (Aside from the fact that most people were Christians.) An educated society was a virtuous society. So it was in those days. lol.

Yesterday we had President Bush’ faith-based program being heard in the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS). If they would teach the Bill of Rights correctly, we would all understand that the freedom of religion was included so as to protect the Church, the Synogogue, and the Mosque from the weight of the Federal government. Not the other way around.

I have received an e-mail from the ACLJ (Justice) attorneys. They have included a short video:
This morning, as I walked the sacred halls of our nation’s highest court, I was reminded of the extreme importance of your solid support of the ACLJ. It is why I am at the Supreme Court today. It is why our team of lawyers worked diligently to ensure our amicus brief was filed under an expedited deadline in this critical case.

Aggressive secularist groups, such as the one in this case (called ”Freedom From Religion Foundation”), are on the warpath. This group goes so far as publishing warning stickers that they encourage to be placed on Bibles in hotel rooms. They take an extreme view of separation of church and state and have challenged the President’s faith-based office.
As a faithful member of the American Center for Law and Justice, I wanted to report to you immediately.

Please take just a moment to view this video report from outside the Supreme Court of the United States. I prepared it for you just moments after oral arguments were heard in Hein v. Freedom From Religion Foundation, a highly pivotal case in the fight to protect President Bush’s faith-based initiatives.

This is an imperative case! Defending religious freedom is a matter of great urgency. I encourage you to…read our amicus brief that was filed in this critical case, also.

Thank you for your firm stand alongside us. Thank you for your solid support of our efforts. You make it possible for us to fight in the highest court of our land today for liberty.

Thank you!
They have also asked for our help, if you would like to keep religion in its’ rightful place in our Country.
Your online gift today will help to propel us forward on this and other important cases nationwide that matter to you, your children, and future generations.
Thank you for taking the time read my article. I still feel uneasy toward the federal government getting mixed up in our business. I do not know. I rather like having the power over them, although I understand the complaint.

What is the complaint? Faith based programs work better than anything this government-made of men could ever do. Programs such as helping the needing, clothing the poor, feeding the hungry, etc.

You do know, I hope, that just because the government has interveved does NOT relieve you of your Godly obligations! All religions do much more effecient and helpful service than any government agency ever could.

Knowing this, we should try to eliminate the programs rather than allow the feds into our door. It doesn’t matter how noble the cause.

Remember, Jesus got very angry when He saw the money-changers in His temple outer area…
