Editorial Reviews

America's Godly Heritage clearly sets forth the beliefs of many of the famous Founding Fathers concerning the proper role of Christian principles in education, in government, and in the public affairs of the nation. The beliefs of Founders like George Washington, John Adams, John Jay, Thomas Jefferson, James Wilson, George Mason, John Quincy Adams, and many others are clearly presented.

America's Godly Heritage also provides excerpts from court cases showing that for 160 years Christian principles were part of official American public life. You'll see numerous charted statistics showing what has happened to America since the courts began rejecting the Founders' beliefs.

America's Godly Heritage is an excellent primer for those who want to know more about what was intended for America by the Founders and what can be done to return America to its original guiding philosophy. This DVD is ideal for sharing with home gatherings, church groups, and Sunday School classes, or to use as a history supplement for children or schools.

In 1993, a friend / coworker loaned me his videocassette of David Barton's, 'AMERICA'S GODLY HERITAGE.' Knowing that I was not what the "orthodox" Christian Church would call a "Christian", he said almost half-apologetically, "I think you might find this interesting....but I don't know. Maybe not." Instead, he should have handed me the tape with immense boldness!

It is a great understatement to say that I was totally unprepared for the information contained in 'AMERICA'S GODLY HERITAGE.' Like most Americans, I had been brainwashed into believing that "SEPARATION OF CHURCH AND STATE" was some foundational principle in our form of government. I had been conditioned by our social engineers (academia; the judiciary; the media; and the scoundrels that we continually send to Washington D.C. to represent us) to accept the seeds of secular Socialism. And being too "busy" (read: lazy) to read "THE SUPREME LAW OF THE LAND" for myself (Pssst. It's called, 'THE CONSTITUTION'), I didn't know any better. Shame on me! 'AMERICA'S GODLY HERITAGE' convicted me of ignorance, and viewing it was the first step I took on my way to becoming a bona fide "patriot."

I am appalled by how often I find deceivers misrepresenting the truth in their Amazon reviews; taking information out of context in order to distort it and deliberately mislead others. Often their own words expose the fact that they are not even familiar with the material they are pretending to review.

On this Product Page we have a "Christian HISTORIAN" who, ignoring the fact that the vast majority of America's Founding Fathers were members of orthodox Christian churches, seizes upon statements from a few of the less religious Founders to paint an inaccurate picture.

This DVD presents the beliefs of the Founders concerning the role of Biblical principles in education, and government. This is an excellent introduction on the Founding Fathers' intent for the US. This is a history lesson that you probably will not find in our public schools and colleges. Highly recommended!

Good exposure of our TRUE American Heritage and placing how we originally based our government morals and standards based on Jesus Christ...then demonstrating how our government drifted and distorted the Truth, leading us into a compromised, destructive society!

This and all of David Barton's other work is outstanding (for lack of a better word). If you wish to be thoroughly entertained while learning a great deal of history (not only history, but studied, accurate, fact backed, history) Barton's work is for you. This material is so good that it should be shown in every school in the nation. The older kids are captivated by the material Barton presents that is not (but should be) presented in schools. Again, I cannot say in words just how good Barton's material is! Buy it, study it, learn it, and share it.

What is an atheist? A person who religiously practices non-religon. What does the first amendment really say? And what is the history behind Thomas Jefferson's 5 words of "seperation of Church and State"?
The fact is that religon is still taught is public schools, every religon. Yes, we have read the bible and the Koran (That is the correct spelling) and talked about what they say in my 10th grade history and english classes. The fact is that every person in the United States of America practices some form of religon. Halloween is orginally a Irish Celtic/ Roman Catholic holiday. Santa Claus is a Catholic saint. The fact that 99% of Americans celebrate this holiday says something.
The Founding Fathers believed that this should be a country built on the bible and God. I am a christian and I will proudly stand up and say it, so did the founding fathers. This is just one more view, but it has proof.
The courts did not have proof of their decision in 1962 that seperated church and state. It did have effects and that is what this movie tried to show. It is put out by a christian organization yet it gives information and quotes from historical documents. I would recommend watching it just to see what the Founding Fathers had to say. Interpert it in your own way.

America's Godly Heritage is a video on the history of how God was indeed a core foundation to our American heritage and stayed that way until 1963 when a major tragic event took place; the Supreme Court decision to cease school prayer in public schools. Prior to this ruling, David Burton shows us proof of how God and His Holy Word (Bible) was integrated by our founding fathers and in our public, government school textbooks.

In this video, Burton covers several founding fathers quotes, old newspaper clippings, textbooks that included God, an overview of the truth behind the "Separation of Church and State" clause, other Supreme Court rulings, how our own government originally was formed based on scriptures from the Old Testament, et cetera.

In my opinion, the explanation of the Thomas Jefferson's Separation of Church and State clause, that has been blown out of context, was worth this video in gold alone. Not to mention the difference in number of precedents used in the Supreme Court ruling to cease public school prayers versus a prior ruling some years before. That tid bit of knowledge was also worth its weight in gold.

Burton does a good job of sticking to the point (no rabbit trails in this video) and really nailing the hammer on the head that there is, without a doubt, a certainty that God and His Word are the foundation of what this country was founded on. And to show the consistency of God's character, when a nation fears Him, they will be blessed. But when a country turns their back on God, expect the opposite. What I mean is that in this video, Burton shows us that after the 1963 Supreme Court ruling to cease all school prayer, various problems our society currently faces went from being a relatively low problem to skyrocketing over the years.
