Despite a 45-year monopoly on public education, the Left has been unable to persuade most Americans to abandon their belief in God and creation and replace it with a belief in atheism and evolution.

According to the latest Newsweek poll, 9 out of 10 Americans still believe in God, and half still do not believe in evolution. Especially discouraging the Leftist Academy are the 34% of college graduates who still accept the Biblical account of creation. And, when you consider 90% of all K-12 students attend their public schools, it becomes even more evident that the Left’s program of public indoctrination is not yielding the anticipated results.

This attempt to bring about the death of Christian America in order to bring about the birth of a secular-socialist uto-pia has been resisted primarily because of the fundamental Judeo-Christian values buried deep within our hearts and our national soul, best expressed in the Declaration of Independence.

WE hold these Truths to be self-evident, that all Men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happi-ness — That to secure these Rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just Powers from the Consent of the Governed, that whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these Ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its Foundation on such Principles, and organizing its Powers in such Form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.

The Bible is the foundation, the Declaration is the “why,” and the Constitution is the “how” of this wonderful experi-ment in liberty and self-government known as the United States of America.

From the Bible, we learn man was created in the image of God, that each man is of equal moral value before God, and our equality prevents one man from claiming the divine right to rule over another. Because each man is equally re-sponsible before God, he is to be free, and each man is responsible for the use of that freedom in governing himself. The principle of self-government roots in our equality before God.
