America's Godly Heritage
Customers Who Bought This Item Also Bought
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.

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 It is put out by a christian organization yet it gives information and quotes from historical documents.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.
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.Read more ›
Speaking of "facts", our "Historian" friend in another review better check again. Our Founders were solidly founded on Judeo-Christian principles. See this website:
Barton's video is simply a must-see!
Every history and government teacher will want this video for their students. It shows many funny, sad, and rediculous stories of how our present day "historians" have sensored our Christian heritage and lied to our children. Learn about the present day court rulings that take away your freedom and violate the constitution. But, most of all, see the quotes directly from our founding fathers, that our present day "historians" intentionally leave out of your children's text books.
Then see the evidence for these strong accusations, in the government's own records. Remember, very few statements can be proven about most historical events. But, our founding fathers passed a law in 1774 that made sure that all the succeeding generations would be able to know exactly what the founding fathers meant.
I never enjoyed history, but this is fun. It is also very important for our country's future.
