First Amendment Attacked in Kansas

When we were attacked on 9/11/01 people flocked to churches and begged God to save our country, to help us get through this tragedy. People were thankful to see the Ten Commandments and the Lord’s Prayer posted in many places. As a nation we began the mantra of “God Bless America.” What happened. We got complacent, told God we were okay and didn’t need His help or intervention anymore, and look at us now. We are almost atheistic as a nation. We tried like He’s a celestial Santa Claus: “Go back to your corner, God; we’ll let you know when we want your help. Otherwise leave us alone.” What does God have to do to get us to love Him enough to let Him have control of our lives? He created us. He sent His ONLY BEGOTTEN Son to die for us. What does He owe us? Doesn’t He deserve more than we give Him?

However, no court brief was filed, and the petition was never brought before any…
