Our Nation's Capital was used as a church by our founders

We can all debate if our nations history and heritage has either been distorted or just omitted.  All the while as our nation's home schooling movement increases, what are us parents to do with history and ensure are children are being taught the full history of our country?  One piece of fact at a time is a great start.

One case in point on the debate of "seperation of church and state", which as I noted before on this blog that these words are not in our constitution nor in any other founding document.  Yet many still naively throw out these words as having some legitimate objection to anything pertaining to religion in our country.  Combine this fact with another tidbit of history that our Nation's Capital was used as a church by our founders.  So the people who wrote the Constitution both approving and using our Capital for church services, somehow would not approve of us saying a prayer in a Federal building?  Houston we have a problem!

Excerpt from Wall Builders story on our Nation's Capital:
"The cornerstone of the Capitol was laid by President George Washington in 1793., but it was not until the end of 1800 that Congress actually moved into the building. According to the congressional records for late November of 1800, Congress spent the first few weeks organizing the Capitol rooms, committees, locations, etc. Then, on December 4, 1800, Congress approved the use of the Capitol building as a church building."

  1. If you really search for it you will find "good" American history. It's just so sad that the truth is not being taught like it should.


Speak your mind!
