We have neglected our responsibility of recognizing obvious attempts to destroy our beliefs and our country's foundation. It is a loss we cannot afford. We have tolerated negative forces to pound away without our noticing the larger damage.

There is no reference to the separation of church and state in our Constitution, Articles I through VII, as we have been led to accept. Phooey!

Article II, Section1, the presidential oath of affirmation begins ,"I do solemnly swear" etc. - one hand on the Bible. Also, "In God we trust" is the strength we've built on.

The fact that some religious institutions, etc., do not pay for government services doesn't negate they are part of society, the people and American way.

Businesses should advertise those who support Americanism can shop. 

Allowed to continue, soon those with covering clothing, cross on chain around neck, allow hair and beard to grow certain ways will be condemned. This threat shall continue if not halted!
