I feel as your congressman, one of my responsibilities is to uphold the parts of our nation’s rich
history that has made America great. One such part is America's foundation of faith
I think there's a reason why, " God Bless America," sends chills through our bodies when we
sing it. I think there is a reason why our money says, " In God We Trust." I think there is a
reason why the Declaration of Independence begins:
" We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed
by their Creator with certain inalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit
And I think there is a reason why when we as Americans face our most trying moments, like
9-11, we almost universally return to things like prayer and readings from Holy Scripture.
And the reason is because America has an undeniable foundation of faith.
For example consider this statement by John Adams:
" The general principles on which the fathers achieved independence were…the general
principles of Christianity…I will avow that I then believed, and now believe, that those
general principles of Christianity are as eternal and immutable as the existence and
attributes of God."
