Today April 29th, 2009 – “I think these women are in a better position to make these decisions than their senators, state representatives, and the president, in consultation with their families and doctors.”– Obama explaining his reason for being pro-choice.
Note that a name missing from the people he lists in his explanation–GOD!
President Barack Obama said in Turkey: “We do not consider ourselves a Christian nation or a Jewish nation or a Muslim nation. We consider ourselves a nation of citizens who are bound by ideals and a set of values.”
I found this very interesting. Do you know the Preamble for your state?
If you don’t, please look it up.
For Kentuckians here is ours:
Kentucky 1891, Preamble.. We, the people of the Commonwealth are grateful to Almighty God for the civil, political and religious liberties..
ALL 50 states constitutions make an acknowledgment of God in the first sentence. One is faced with the prospect that maybe, the ACLU and the out-of-control federal courts are wrong!
Also, please note that at no time in any preamble (no matter what state you live in) that anyone is told that they MUST worship God.
