Prayer and the Ten Commandments were squashed by the Supreme Court

Until 1962, schoolchildren across America uttered a noble prayer at the beginning of each day. No longer, since the U.S. Supreme Court wrongly made this practice illegal.

Oct. 15, 2012 - PRLog -- According to the U.S. Supreme Court, publicly displaying the Ten Commandments will induce schoolchildren to “read, meditate upon... venerate and obey the Commandments,” which is “not a permissible state objective.”

Wait a minute — our Founding Fathers believed that human law must rest on divine authority. But our current government has long since left those ideals in the dust.

In his YouTube video, The Fruit of a Nation that Forgets God, Bradlee Dean further explores this shortfall of our government.

Until 1962, schoolchildren across America uttered this noble prayer at the beginning of each day:

“Almighty God, we acknowledge our dependency upon Thee and we beg Thy blessings upon us, our parents, our teachers, and our country.”

They do so no more. Can you believe it? This simple and sincere prayer can hardly be imagined to offend anyone. However, it was declared unconstitutional. Never mind that the Declaration of Independence acknowledges God four times as often as this prayer or that only three percent of the country at that time did not believe in God.

For the first time, the “three percent” was treated as the majority in our country. George Washington wrote in 1796 that in excluding religious principles, we cannot expect the national morality to prevail. Yet our once-Christian nation continues to slide even deeper down the road of godlessness. Is it any surprise that our morality has become so watered down?

Dire consequences

Since that fateful year, the birthrate for single mothers aged 15-19 have increased every year. Students aged 15-19 have experienced an increase in STDs transmitted, and premarital sex has become increasingly prevelent among the youth. Not just that, but SAT scores have fallen in public schools, while students in religious schools score routinely higher, despite receiving two-fifths less funding. In statistics no one is proud of, the United States has become number one in incidents of violent crime, divorce, teenage pregnancy, abortion, drug use, and illiteracy.
