The following is an article that I received as an E-Mail forward. I think it needs to be placed in a permanent spot on the web, so here it is. I did add the blurb at the end.

 DID YOU KNOW? As you walk up the steps to the building which  houses the U.S. Supreme Court you can see near the top of the building a row of  the world's law givers and each one is facing one in the middle who is facing  forward with a full frontal view  ... it is Moses and he is holding the Ten  Commandments!
 
 DID YOU KNOW? As you enter the Supreme Court courtroom, the two huge oak  doors have the Ten Commandments engraved on each lower portion of each door.
 
 DID YOU KNOW? As you sit inside the courtroom, you can see the wall, right above where the Supreme Court judges sit, a display of the Ten Commandments!
 
 DID YOU KNOW? There are Bible verses etched in stone all over the Federal Buildings and Monuments in Washington, D.C.
 
 DID YOU KNOW? James Madison, the fourth president, known as "The Father of Our Constitution" made the following statement: "We have staked the whole of all our political institutions upon the capacity of mankind for self-government, upon the capacity of each and  all of us to govern ourselves, to control ourselves, to sustain
ourselves according to the Ten Commandments of God."
 
 DID YOU KNOW? Patrick Henry, that patriot and Founding Father of our country said: "It cannot be emphasized too strongly or too often that this  great nation was founded not by religionists but by Christians, not on religions but on the Gospel of Jesus Christ".
 
 DID YOU KNOW? Every session of Congress begins with a prayer by a paid preacher, whose salary has been paid by the taxpayer since 1777.
 
 DID YOU KNOW?  Fifty-two of the 55 founders of the Constitution were members  of established orthodox churches in the colonies.
 
 DID YOU KNOW?  Thomas Jefferson worried that the Courts would overstep their authority and instead of interpreting the law would begin making law as an oligarchy the rule of few over many.
 
 DID YOU KNOW?  The very first Supreme Court Justice, John Jay, said: "Americans should select and prefer Christians as their rulers." 
 
 How, then, have we gotten to the point that everything we have done almost 230 years in this country is now suddenly wrong and unconstitutional?
 Lets put it around the world and let the world see and remember what this great country was built on.
 
Chamber, US House of Representatives
  It is said that 86% of Americans believe in God. Therefore,it is very hard to understand why there is such a mess about having the Ten Commandments on display or "In God We Trust" on our money and having God in the Pledge of Allegiance.
 

As long as I, as an average American, sit here lamenting on the fact that judges and lawyers are chipping away at the foundations of my country and just depend on email forwards to change things, I am living in a dream world. Judges and lawyers need to hear from me personally. I need to voice my displeasure with the power of the ACLU and that ilk. I need to attend public forums where my Congressmen give me an opportunity to speak with them personally, and use that forum to urge Congress to draft and pass laws that will curtail the chipping.
