I recently received the following in my e-mail from one of my regular readers.
Thought I'd share it with you.
So, if the US government determines that it is against the law for the words 'under
God' to be on our money, then, so be it. And if that same government decides that
the 'Ten Commandments' are not to be used in or on a government installation, then,

for worshiping God) because, after all, our government says that it should be just
