The United States Supreme Court confirmed our nation's Christian DNA in a unanimous decision February 29, 1892 - that has never been overruled. The court cited various authorities confirming the influence the Bible had on America since its founding. This decision confirmed our founders' intentions in the Constitution's First Amendment to protect citizens from a national religion - granting us freedom of religion - not freedom from religion.
The court ruled: "There is no dissonance in these declarations. There is a universal language pervading them all having one meaning: they affirm and reaffirm that this is a religious nation. These are not individual sayings, declarations of private persons; they are organic utterances; they speak the voice of the entire group. These authorities were collected to support the historical conclusion that no purpose of action against religion can be imputed to any legislation, state or nation, because this is a religious people. This is historically true. From the discovery of this continent to the present hour, there is a single voice making this affirmation...we find everywhere a clear recognition of the same truth...this is a Christian nation..."
Eric Bearse, spokesman for the Texas prayer gathering Perry attended said they "expected this kind of legal harassment, but the right of Americans to assemble and pray has been established for over 200 years." While 200 years of precedence has never stopped Progressives before, it seems there may be a more obvious reason why the man, Perry, who has a campaign winning streak ten elections long, is feared: John Sharp, a 1998 lieutenant governor opponent to Perry summed it up when he said, "Running against Perry is like running against God."
