I've been reading "The Covenant: One Nation Under God - America's Sacred & Immutable Connection with Ancient Israel". (Very interesting Book). In it, I read the National Decree for a Day of Fasting and Repentence made by the Second Constitutional Congress. This was the same Congress that wrote the Declaration of Independence. The Decree goes as follows: Now these are some of the same people who later established the Constitution. What does that tell us of their understanding of the First Amendment and the place for God in our nation?
