Why did the Supreme Court Ban Prayer?

In the column I wrote for American Daily, You won’t hear this being taught in school, I brought up some facts regarding the mindset and thoughts of our Founding Fathers. It was fairly clear how the America that Washington, Madison, and Jefferson hoped and prayed for included God and His Son, Jesus Christ as integral working partners at the head of the government. I held back a portion so I could write about it here.

“It is clear from history that the Bible and the Christian faith, were foundational in our educational and judicial system. However in 1947, there was a radical change of direction in the Supreme Court. Here is the prayer that was banished:

"Almighty God, we acknowledge our dependence on Thee. We beg Thy blessings upon us and our parents and our teachers and our country. Amen."”

What Spirit teaches a man not to pray, or better stated, who teaches men not to pray? Who is the Father of all Lies, one of his many names? Who is it that was cast out of Heaven for open rebellion to Father? So, who is it that the Supreme Court is following when they consider how to interpret the Constitution? It certainly isn’t the whisperings of the Holy Spirit which manifests itself to those who humble themselves in the attitude of prayer to Father; so, who is it that they are listening to as they contemplate in deep thought?

James Madison, considered to be responsible for most of the writing of our Constitution stated, “We have staked the future of all our political constitutions upon the capacity of each of ourselves to govern ourselves according to the moral principles of the Ten Commandments.” Why is it then that the highest court in the land will no longer acknowledge God; even further, has gone to great lengths to remove God from nearly every aspect of American life?

“And now, my beloved brethren, I perceive that ye ponder still in your hearts; and it grieveth me that I must speak concerning this thing. For if ye would hearken unto the Spirit which teacheth a man to pray ye would know that ye must pray; for the evil spirit teacheth not a man to pray, but teacheth him that he must not pray.”

2 Nephi 32:8

The answers to all the questions I have listed are the same. There is an agenda which has been put in motion, an agenda which requires that we as a nation forget that we once were a Christian nation, a nation built on faith, a nation of individuals who were sufficiently humbled so that prayer was an everyday part of life from the highest office to the average citizen.

A special thanks to Mary Jones for her work and setting up such a beautiful and informative website:
