God and Christian values continue to be under assault from people and organizations attempting to drive our beliefs out of the military, government and our schools and the revisionists continue to rewrite history. History books probably still state that Calvin Coolidge was our 30th president, but they probably don't mention this truth that he wrote: "The foundations of our society and our government rest so much on the teachings of the Bible that it would be difficult to support them if faith in these teachings would cease to be practically universal in our country."

Another probably little known fact is that of our first 108 universities founded in America, 106 were distinctly Christian, including the first, Harvard University, chartered in 1636. So it is easy to see why America has been such a blessed nation and the greatest nation ever. But if the teachings of the Bible are allowed to be removed from America's institutions where do you suppose that will leave us?
