I can't believe my Mother sent this to ME!

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?
Every
session
of Congress begins with a prayer by a
paid
preacher, whose salary has been paid by the
taxpayer
since 1777.

DID
YOU
KNOW?


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.

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?

Lets
put
it around the world and let the world see
and
remember what this great country was Built
on The
Holy Bible and belief in
GOD!




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




If
you
agree, pass this on

My dept. manager is Catholic. I think he goes to mass at ,like, christmas. But every Friday, he eats fish. When people ask about it I say "He's still worried that some nun is gonna whack him with a ruler." He laughs, and then tells how mean nuns are for ten minutes. haha

Eric, hilarious! 

 

so i talked with her about this.  she pretty much ignored what i had replied and simply stated that "it's a good list for all people to abide by."  i told her that we would have to agree to disagree.  then she informed me of something that i was unaware of - the Catholics have their own version of the Ten Commandments.  i was raised Catholic and i didn't know this.  yet after perusing the list, i do indeed rememeber that version from my upbringing.  how funny is it that Moses' Commandments weren't good enough for the Catholic Church.  they needed to doctor it to fit into their own dogma.  now isn't that just too perfect??!!

Did you know? It aggravates the crap out of me that people who have the same beliefs as 90% of the population want to act like they are persecuted and isolated. Craziness.

Yeah I've heard those told to me by theists as well. Sigh ...

Mr. M, please be sure to post the link for that blog post here, ok?

Comment by matthew greenberg on January 29, 2012 at 12:09pm

Jason, yes i did.  i was hoping that it was part of a mass email but unfortunately i was the only recipient. 

 

i should add, although it is not included in what i posted here, that the beginning of this email stated that this was created by our friend, Andy Rooney.  i wonder if the author of the original email would have sent it had they known that Andy was an Atheist.

So Matthew, did you send your mother the same response you posted here? You could ask her to "pass it on".

Anytime anyone wants to insist that the US is somehow a christian nation, just remind them of Article VI of the Constitution and the Treaty of Tripoli, particularly Article XI of that document.  Usually shuts the fools up.
