Liberal Groups Want to Censor American History

Americans United for Separation of Church and State and the American Civil Liberties Union of Maryland are claiming that the Commissioners of Carroll County, Maryland, were wrong to use $800 of taxpayer money to fund a talk by David Whitney, pastor of Cornerstone Evangelical Fellowship in Pasadena, Maryland, to teach “the founders’ view of law and government, the American view of law and government, which is, simply put, there is a Creator God, the God of the Bible. Secondly, our rights come from Him. Thirdly, the sole purpose of human civil government is to protect and secure those God-given rights.”

The Declaration of Independence says as much with phrases like “all men are created equal,” “appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world,” “a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence,” and “to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men.”

Let’s take a look at Article 36 of Maryland’s constitution to see if there is any validity to the argument that to teach the religious history of the United States is unconstitutional.

The article states that it is the

duty of every man to worship God,” and to be a witness, a Maryland citizen had to believe “in the existence of God, and that under His dispensation such person will be held morally accountable for his acts, and be rewarded or punished therefore either in this world or in the world to come.”

Is it unconstitutional to tell the people of Maryland what their original constitution actually said and still contains?

And now… the rest of the story. …..
