As previously explained in earlier articles there has been an attempt to censor and filter my teaching of our Christian Heritage in American History at both the High School and College level during my 27+ year career. As we approach the autumn holiday season we will once again see the "War on Christianity" intensify as American citizens will express their God given freedom of Religion, Speech and Press at the dismay of the ACLU, the Freedom From Religion Foundation, MSNBC and the Progressive LEFT. They will once again come out swinging with their lies and twisted history to pervert the Truth as they attempt to infiltrate and indoctrinate our Youth and millions of American citizens with their re-written secularized version of our great Christian history.

FACTS, TRUTH and the EMPIRICAL-HISTORICAL evidence is on our side.

Read and Study the October 3, 1789 Thanksgiving Proclamation below.

Note: It was signed by the very same Congress that passed the 1st Amendment and by our 1st President, George Washington. This VERY Christian official Federal Government Proclamation was issued to Thank God Almighty for our Constitutional Republic under Him. The Anti-Christian Progressive-Secular LEFT hates those facts as they don't know what to do with our Christian Heritage except to lie and deny that reality.

We must fight their lies!

Please share this Proclamation with your friends and neighbors.


Here are the original words of the October 3, 1789 Proclamation. Note how Christian the language is as it calls for obeying God's will, forgiveness of sin, and prayer.

Sorry ACLU, FFRF and Lying Lefties Read it & Weep!!!!

"Thanksgiving Proclamation

Issued by President George Washington, at the request of Congress, on October 3, 1789

By the President of the United States of America, a Proclamation.

Whereas it is the duty of all nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey His will, to be grateful for His benefits, and humbly to implore His protection and favor; and – Whereas both Houses of Congress have, by their joint committee, requested me "to recommend to the people of the United States a day of public thanksgiving and prayer, to be observed by acknowledging with grateful hearts the many and signal favors of Almighty God, especially by affording them an opportunity peaceably to establish a form of government for their safety and happiness:" Now, therefore, I do recommend and assign Thursday, the 26th day of November next, to be devoted by the people of these States to the service of that great and glorious Being who is the beneficent author of all the good that was, that is, or that will be; that we may then all unite in rendering unto Him our sincere and humble thanks for His kind care and protection of the people of this country previous to their becoming a nation; for the signal and manifold mercies and the favor, able interpositions of His providence in the course and conclusion of the late war; for the great degree of tranquillity, union, and plenty which we have since enjoyed; for the peaceable and rational manner in which we have been enabled to

establish constitutions of government for our safety and happiness, and particularly the national one now lately instituted; for the civil and religious liberty with which we are blessed, and the means we have of acquiring and diffusing useful knowledge; and, in general, for all the great and various favors which He has been pleased to confer upon us. And also that we may then unite in most humbly offering our prayers and supplications to the great Lord and Ruler of Nations, and beseech Him to pardon our national and other trangressions; to enable us all, whether in public or private stations, to perform our several and relative duties properly and punctually; to render our National Government a blessing to all the people by constantly being a Government of wise, just, and constitutional laws, discreetly and faithfully executed and obeyed; to protect and guide all sovereigns and nations (especially such as have shown kindness to us), and to bless them with good governments, peace, and concord; to promote the knowledge and practice of true religion and virtue, and the increase of science among them and us; and, generally, to grant unto all mankind such a degree of temporal prosperity as He alone knows to be best.

Given under my hand at the City of New York the third day of October in the year of our Lord 1789.

Go. Washington"
