Separation of church & state? Lets find the TRUTH!
by Mike Crane

Across our land there has been a debate and a number of political and legal battles concerning the Display of The Ten Commandments. While I am certainly in favor of Displaying God’s Laws I have been puzzled by the arguments being put forth by the ACLU and others. They claim that such Display’s are unconstitutional based upon what they call, “ Separation of Church and State.” They claim that Our Founding Fathers intended to build a wall of separation between the Church and State and thus not only is the Display of God’s Laws unconstitutional but is contrary to Our Founding Father’s Principles.

Well these are certainly important arguments! If the ACLU and associates are protecting not only the Constitution but trying to implement the Principles of Our Founding Fathers then they certainly deserve some support. On the other hand if they are misrepresenting not only the Constitution but the principles of Our Founding Fathers as well, then they are simply abusing the system to force their agenda upon the citizens.

So lets find some TRUTH in this argument and debate. In this issue lets look at the Principles of Our Founding Fathers and see if we can find some TRUTH.

Being a good Southerner, I chose the Declaration of Independence as a starting point. After all, most people consider this document (written by a Southern Man) as the premier instrument of Our Founding Fathers. For this article will use the following introductory portion.

The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America,

When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.

So far every one is probably saying, “well so what Crane?” So now let me ask you, and the ACLU a very important question. Have you ever looked at documents written by Our Founding Fathers using a dictionary of that time period, especially the underlined words above? If not, get ready for a surprise and a glimpse into the TRUTH on this debate.

Someone has changed the definitions contained in our dictionaries! The words and meaning established by Our Founding Fathers haven’t changed, the commercially available dictionaries have changed!

 For example the definitions of the word God in early 1800’s versus today:

 Then – The Supreme Being; Jehovah; the eternal and infinite spirit, the Creator, and the Sovereign of the Universe.

God is a spirit; and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth. John iv.

Now - A being conceived as the perfect, omnipotent, omniscient originator and ruler of the universe, the principal object of faith and worship in monotheistic religions.

Another example using the definitions of the word Nature in early 1800’s versus today:

Then – In a general sense whatever is made or produced; a word that comprehends all of the works of God; the universe.

And look through nature up to nature’s God.   Pope

Now - The material world and its phenomena.

Reread this small portion of the writings of Our Founding Fathers twice. Once using today’s definitions of just these two words and a second time using the definitions that would have been in effect at the time of Our Founding Fathers. When you complete this small exercise, based upon just two words you will have a glimpse of the TRUTH.

THE TRUTH: On July 4, 1776 when the Declaration of Independence was signed in the Continental Congress they signed a document that was clearly understood and very clearly expressed a belief in Christianity. The same thing has happened to the definitions of Laws of Nature, Nature's God, truths and their Creator in just this small portion of the Declaration.

By Creator and God they meant Jehovah, not Allah, Budda or Zeus. They did not mean anything other than what the usage of the words meant, Jehovah! 

By Nature’s they meant the works of God, of Jehovah. They were not referring to The material world and its phenomena as the current dictionary defines Nature.

For the ACLU to imply that Our Founding Fathers would not approve of the public display of God’s Laws is ludicrous at best. They published for public display, at risk of life and limb, a document that stated their beliefs. Ladies & Gentlemen the ACLU and associates are selling you a bill of goods.

In fact anybody, even government agencies, that tell you Our Founding Fathers were opposed to public display of God’s Laws is selling you a bill of goods. It just isn’t true. No matter what the politically correct demand. No matter how many law suits are filed. It just isn’t true, and that is the TRUTH.

Thomas Jefferson, a Southern Man, had the following to say about atheism,

“It has been so impossible to contradict all of their lies, that I am determined to contradict none; for while I should be engaged with one, they would publish twenty new ones.”

The implications of the redefinition of our language range far beyond the debate on the Display of the Ten Commandments. Our Founding Fathers established American Liberty based upon the Laws of Nature and from the dictionary of their time:

Laws of Nature - These tendencies or determinations, whether called laws or affections of matter, have been established by the Creator, and are, with a particular felicity of expression, denominated, in Scripture, ordinances of Heaven.

By "Scripture" they meant the Bible, King James Version, not the Koran or the New York Times.

But the real questions are, who authorized changing the definitions of our language to remove the fundamental principles that were used to establish American Liberty? Did you vote for this? Were you even aware of it? Has this contributed to the decline of morality and our society?


[author's note: A few weeks after writing the above article I had the opportunity to participate in a radio debate with Mrs. Headie Weinberg, head of the Tennessee ACLU. Once again she - as the representative of the Tennessee ACLU - made the statement that specifically "Our Founding Fathers" erected a "wall of separation." 

After some questioning of Mrs. Weinberg, she admitted that the basis of the ACLU lawsuit (in Hamilton County, Tennessee) was the 14th Amendment (enacted in 1867), which is the basis for the "wall of separation."

When asked to name the Founding Fathers that were still alive in 1867 to do this deed, she of course could not answer the question. The reason is obvious, none of the Founding Fathers were alive in 1867!

The ACLU is simply re-writing history to serve their agenda. Of course, many those who oppose the Display of The Ten Commandments do not believe that lying is a sin either. - Mike Crane]  


Note about July 18 Primary (click here for our Voter Guide).

Sadly this year we have seen Judge Roy Moore lose a primary race in Alabama. His opponent, the incumbent governor sat idle while Judge Moore was removed from office and the Ten Commandments Display was removed from the Alabama Judicial building.

Here in Georgia there have been several Ten Commandments battles. Barrow County waged a courageous effort, but in the end lost their Ten Commandments Display to an ACLU law suit. Our incumbent governor sat idle while the ACLU successfully pursued their law suit. His opponent in the July 18 Republican Primary during this same frame was not sitting idle. RayRay McBerry and Ten Commandments McBerry was working to Display The Ten Commandments.
