in court we swear an oath to truth with our hand on the bible or use to and may still do.and one nation under God to our pledge to the Flag. and im sure many other things i dont even know about. BUT this is not why i posted, what i am going to post is just food for thought. and there is one flaw. the timing of my facts as it pertains to events in our history.i simply dont know the timing..
while on vacation, in Virginia, which is so rich in history. i love civil war sights, even gettyburg PA.i toured. but with always some fun for the kids like a few nights at virginia beach. and at Williamsburg VA. Busch Gardens amusment park,,but my point will be in the facinating time at the federally ran Coloinal Williamburg. that u cant enter. one must buy differnent kinds of passes, we had a 2 day pass, and they bus u in to the city. it is set as it was in the day. each store or building u enter has ppl dressed to the date, and they begin to explain how things were in those days near the revolution. to the last detail.blocks of building,taverns where the revolution was dicussed. so all this for this small thought,,lol,, while in the school, there was a crowd in it listening to a teacher, dressed to that day. and passed around what the children learned to read with, or one thing, but the only thing they showed. it was a wooden paddle type thing. with word and small stories on it. to read. in a public school mind u.and on that instrument of learning. one thing that was on it to advance there reading was i think the Lords Prayer. or one of the Psalms, i really forget which , but no matter. it was direct from the Bible. now my flaw, i dont know if it was before the Constitution or after or if before and after it was used. so it made my mind wonder what our Founding Fathers had in mind on this point.and how strict. they ment the seperation to be. just a small point . now patrick henry went to church there, and when in town thomas jefferson, i also toured his home in montecello.. but by the bible being on a elemetary grade public school reading material. i still wonder how our Founding Fathers thoutht..like i said not much but something to ponder?
