Did you know? Observations from an email

Monday, February 11, 2013

Couldn't copy the photos from the email, but thought this was interesting. This is all from an email that also had a bunch of orders to delete or pass it on and some other comments I chose to ignore.


DID YOU KNOW ?
As you walk up the steps to the building which houses the U.S. Supreme Court you can see near the top of the building a row of the world's law givers and each one is facing one in the middle who is facing forward with a full frontal view ...

It is Moses and he is holding the Ten Commandments!


DID YOU KNOW?
As you enter the Supreme Court courtroom, the two huge oak doors have the Ten Commandments engraved on each lower portion of each door.


DID YOU KNOW?
As you sit inside the courtroom, you can see the wall, right above where the Supreme Court Judges sit, a display of the Ten Commandments



DID YOU KNOW?
There are Bible verses etched in stone all over the Federal Buildings and Monuments in Washington D.C.


DID YOU KNOW?
James Madison, the fourth president known as "the Father of our Constitution" made the following statement: "we have staked the whole of all our political institutions upon the capacity of mankind for self-government upon the capacity of each and all of us to govern ourselves, control ourselves, to sustain ourselves according to The Ten Commandments of God."


DID YOU KNOW?
Every session of Congress begins with a prayer by a paid preacher, whose salary has been paid by the taxpayer since 1777.


DID YOU KNOW?
Fifty-two of the 55 founders of the Constitution were members of the established Orthodox churches in the colonies.


DID YOU KNOW?
Thomas Jefferson worried that the Courts would overstep their authority and instead of interpreting the law would begin making law an oligarchy: the rule of few over the many.

    I don't like the idea of paying a person to pray...but it goes on in a lot of places. I knew a lot of the other information but appreciate the post.

    Did a little investigating about the tetragrammaton...didn't find the info on it but DID find all sorts of info relating to OTHER mystic and mythical god related connections to art work and architecture. Too much to relate, but I was surprised.

    Interesting! The thought of "prayer" being paid for by tax payers is a bit disturbing.
