Letter to the Editor

Christian founders

Monday, July 26, 2004

Dear Editor,

Enclosed is a picture of the East Pediment of the Supreme Court building in Washington D.C., the area above the rear of the building. As we can see, in the center is Moses holding the Ten Commandments, carved in stone.

Also, according to Alabama Attorney general Bill Pryor, there are more than 20 artistic depictions of Moses or the Ten Commandments throughout the Supreme Court building.

The fact is stated in the book, "What if America Were A Chistian Nation Again," by D. James Kennedy, with Jerry Newcombe, page 21. On the same page is another interesting fact. David Barton, author of "Original Intent," points out that approximately 250 men could be called America's founding fathers. They served on the Continental Congress and gave us the Declaration of Independence, the Articles of Confederation, the Constitution, the Bill of Rights and the Northwest Ordinance.

Of these, 250 men, about a dozen were not orthodox Christians. Psalms 31:18 states, "Let the lying lips be put to silence; which speak grievous things proudly and contemptuously against the righteous."


George R. Anderson,
