Did SCOTUS error the wisdom of the First Amendment in 1947 which resulted in the erosion of the foundations pillars of our national policies?
Anyone listening to current news reports of our House and Nation proceedings today, should be concerned about the pillar foundations of our Nation?.
The Purpose of This Post
Is to convey some wise pillar statements and predictions of past great successful proven leaders, of our Nation warnings. Warnings to discern if what they warned would happen is indeed happening now.
If so, was the 1947 SCOTUS interpretation of the First Amendment wise or foolish?
Wisdom has built her house; she has carved out her seven pillars. (Proverb 9:1)
What’s My Point?
I believe the First Amendment was misinterpreted by the Supreme Court in 1947 and this error needs to be ruled in error same as previous interpretation of slavery was overturned.
“The interpretation of the wall of separation of Church and State “only quoted eight words from the letter, thus taking Jefferson’s words out of context. The full text of the paragraph in Jefferson’s letter containing those words are as follows: ,,,,,,,,,,,,”
In My Opinion
Read some of the following Excerpts of past pillars of our Nation.
I believe religious “civil rights” have been “infringed” by the misinterpretations of the SCOTUS 1947 ruling.
“Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports.” He knew that without religion and morality, America was doomed. Washington continued, “In vain would that man claim the tribute of patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness, these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens.”
“French historian Alexis de Tocqueville wrote, “Religion and morality were indispensable to the maintenance of the American republic. While the constitutional law of liberty allowed Americans complete freedom to do as they pleased, religion prevented them from doing that which is immoral and unjust.”
“We have grown in numbers, wealth and power as no other nation has ever grown,” he continued. “But we have forgotten God.”
“Here are the words Lincoln quoted—and they come from Jesus Christ: “And if a kingdom be divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand. And if a house be divided against itself, that house cannot stand.” (Mark 3:24-25)
“[T]he foundations of our national policy will be laid in the pure and immutable principles of private morality ….” In other words, private morality is not a peripheral issue; it is foundational.”

If after reading, do you concur that SCOTUS ruling needs to be overturned based on what we are now reading and hearing in the news what is occurring in our House (Nation)?
Would School Voucher help in measure to rebuild a pillar foundation in the future?.
