America’s Judeo-Christian Heritage Gone, but not Forgotten?

“IN GOVERNMENT WE TRUST”; from freedom “TO WORSHIP GOD”,
to freedom “FROM WORSHIP OF GOD”, and it happened with in a short span of only 232 years.
The new mantra, which is generally quoted completely out of context, is: SEPERATION OF CHURCH AND STATE. What a complete and utter fallacy.
