  • Got This E-Mail

    Got this e-mail from my uncle in florida and since there have been posts regarding the USA and Christianity, I thought I would pass it along. Andy Rooney is the author.
    As you walk up the steps to the building which houses the U.S Supreme Court you can see near the top of the building a row of the world's law givers and each one is facing one in the middle who is facing forward with a full frontal view ... it is Moses and he is holding the Ten Commandments!




    DID YOU KNOW?

    As you enter the Supreme Court courtroom, the Two huge oak doors have the Ten Commandments Engraved on each lower portion of each door.


    DID YOU KNOW?


    As you sit inside the courtroom, you can see The wall, right above where the Supreme Court judges sit, a display of the Ten Commandments!




    DID YOU KNOW?





    There are Bible verses etched in stone all over the Federal Buildings and Monuments in Washington , D.C.
    DID YOU KNOW?



    James Madison, the fourth president, known as 'The Father of Our Constitution' made the
    following statement:

    ' We have staked the whole of all our political institutions upon the capacity of mankind for self-government, upon the capacity of each and all of us to govern ourselves, to control ourselves, to sustain ourselves according to the Ten Commandments of God.'
    DID YOU KNOW?


    Every session of Congress begins with a prayer by a paid preacher, whose salary has been paid
    by the taxpayer since 1777.

    Andy Rooney is an old, senile crackpot. Actually, I think the real Andy Rooney died five years ago, and what you've seen since is his hollowed out corpse animated with wires, pullies, and a ventriloquist.

    DID YOU KNOW????

      So is the hollowed out corpse correct, or is this another false e-mail?

          Well, based on the Snopes entry, I'd say the hollowed out corpse is as crazy as ever........

            I read some of the enterpretations on the snopes site and in my opinion they leave a lot to be desired. Moses is considered a legal figure, not a religious figure? Yeah, sure everyone would agreeThe carvings on the bottom of the supreme court doors show "two tablets" with roman numerals one through ten, and don't refer to the Ten Commandments? Sure, the tablets were a coincidence! Maybe that e-mail contained some errors, but I'm just as sure the folks who give the last word on what we should think over at snopes.com give their own slant as well. Time to stop reading all these e-mails from my Uncle, advice from andy rooney, and the folks at snopes.

              Don't forget that Confucius and Solomon are also present in the sculpture.

              It seems clear by the artists own words that they were referencing great civilizations and thinkers.

              The senate and John Adams took no exception to the fact that the Treaty of Tripoli explicitly states that the United States was not founded on Christian beliefs. Many founding fathers and framers were in that body.
