The Battle for Our Nation
AS THIS GREAT CIVILIZATION WAS BEING BUILT ON THE VIRGIN SOIL OF NORTH AMERICA, a People were moving in Destiny, and they established a new nation carrying the Banner of their God.
From its beginning an enemy was riding on the shoulders of the people of this nation, like parasites, but this was a growing and developing nation and this progress in their path of destiny could not be stopped. However using the power of the Purse and the program of wars, the enemy was able to weaken our nation and destroy some of the most young and outstanding of the nation. This weakened the increase, and moral fiber of this civilization. However in spite of the enemy, men of vision produced the Constitution of these United States, and the first 12 Amendments known as the Bill of Rights. No other nation has produced such a document and set in place a Republic type of government like this one now in place among these people of Destiny. No earthly king would rule over this nation which acknowledged only One King, and One Nation under God.
Since the beginning of this nation the attack has come from school desegregation, racial discrimination in employment, voting rights, affirmative action, abortion, and criminal proceedings, all are in the thinking of many and are tied in one way or another to the First Amendment, the 13th., Amendment, the 14th., Amendment, and the 15th., Amendment of those who drafted these Amendments should help us see the difference in the thinking of the men back in those early days, and the way they are interpreted today. Perhaps here we will find the answer to the decay of this great civilization and nation, our own United States of America.
In today’s world it is very fashionable, especially in the Academic world, to look back in history for answers. We however believe just the opposite, therefore we have turned to the old book, ‘Civil Rights, the Constitution, and Congress of 1863‑1869’, by Earl M. Maltz, published in 1950. For the other side of the picture, ‘The Myth of Separation’, by David Barton, published in 1992. This last book mentioned deals with the Separation of Church and State, going back in time for the thinking of the forefathers, then noting the changes which have occurred in the interpretation of this Amendment over the years.
The first Amendment to the Constitution states: .Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press, or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
