The secularists (aka The Left or the Democrat party leadership) wish to rewrite our American history. This has been accomplished to a great extent in the secular textbooks being used in our public schools.
However, it irks them to no end that Christian schools (and perhaps some other private schools) continue to use textbooks that do not incorporate their historical revisionism. See the linked article in the Huffington Post (a liberal news source).
It is an historical fact that our founding fathers based the founding of our country on Judeo-Christian principles. This is clearly evident when one reads their original writings. Here is just one example taken from the Federalist Papers, No. 2.
“With equal pleasure I have as often taken notice that Providence has been pleased to give this one connected country to one united people—a people descended from the same ancestors, speaking the same language, professing the same religion…
“This country and this people seem to have been made for each other, and it appears as if it was the design of Providence that an inheritance so proper and convenient for a band of brethren…”
The applicable definition of “Providence” as found in the 1828 Webster’s Dictionary is: “In theology, the care and superintendence which God exercises over his creatures.”
This is also supported by how the word providence is used in the final sentence of the Declaration of Independence.
“And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm Reliance on the Protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes, and our Sacred Honor.”
Christianity is inextricably intertwined in the founding of our country. That cannot be rightfully denied.
