HASH(0x9773324c) out of 5 stars A must if you want to better understand the Constitution Sept. 17 2011
By Mark Morris - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Have you ever wondered why it is OK to display the 10 Commandments at the Supreme Court yet the Supreme Court ruled you can't display them in public schools? How "Separation of Church and State" found its way into our laws but is not in the Constitution? This book shows exactly how this happened. While reading this book I found myself looking up Supreme Court decisions and reading the opinions and the dissenting opinions. It turns out you don't need to be a Constitutional Scholar to understand how we got to where we are and the Founding Fathers clearly wanted citizens to understand the Constitution. The "Separation of Church and State" concept has only been around since 1947. Seven of the nine Supreme Court Justices on the Court that made this ruling were put on the court by FDR. And it was still only a 5-4 ruling! His court packing scheme might have failed but it turns out he packed the court anyway. These ruling are not based in law, they are based in politics and it is time that we stand up to a Judiciary that is not concerned with following the Constitution but on rewriting the Constitution. I learned more about our Founders and the Constitution reading this book than I did in grade school, high school, and college combined. The more people that read this book the better off our country will be.

HASH(0x97733498) out of 5 stars Did you know? Dec 22 2012

That church services were held in the capital building and was attended by most of all the Founding Fathers and others? That at one time the federal government provided tax money to schools if the Bible was part of their curriculum and schools that refused to teach from the Bible the tax money was withheld? That many of the liberal, socialist-indoctrinating, ivy-league colleges and universities were originally founded to train young minds in law, science, history, etc. based on Biblical-morals and Judeo-Christian ethics? There is a lot more to this book than just these tidbits to show the truth of the founding of our nation and the Original Intent of those who gave their "lives, fortunes and sacred honor" (Declaration of Independence). If you are looking for the truth in history, don't read it from some revisionist historian looking for a book deal and the pitiful money and fame it will bring that person; read for yourself the Founding Fathers own words in their speeches, letters and personal communication with those who were their contemporaries. This is a most excellent source for their Original Intent.

HASH(0x9773345c) out of 5 stars Excellent and a Must read for all Americans June 3 2013

I always believed we were a Christian nation and our founding fathers were strong in their faith. But I was pleasantly shocked at just how strong their faith was. I say shocked because their intention was so far from where we are today. After reading this book, I feel like all of the founders are in heaven weeping tears over us today. They put so much of themselves into framing our constitution and setting up our country as a Christian nation and today we are twisting and trashing all their painstaking work. If we could only go back to the real constitution and the way it was intended ...
This book is written with excerpts from documents and sometimes whole documents and allows the reader to know how the founding fathers felt. These are in their own words. Documents from Ben Franklin, Thomas Jefferson and many, many more.

HASH(0x97733750) out of 5 stars The best book about the founders Oct. 5 2011
By M. Baldanza - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
David Barton brilliantly describes the real intent of the founders in this great book. Lots of references that help us research even further. We can get a glimpse on how the liberals and fake historians try to rewrite history. If we want to know about the formation of America we must go to the founders and read what they wrote. This is a must read and must have book, that we should use as a means of empowerment in our conversations about the founding of America.

Anything David Barton writes has been thoroughly researched and researched. I spent a lot of time learning Texas history while completing my Master's degree. David does talk really pay attention!
