No Compromise

Uploaded by AliceMayo on Mar 19, 2005

Prayer before a game, “under God” as a part of the pledge, the Ten Commandments on school walls: are all of these really an endorsement of religion or are they merely a nation’s heritage; traditions passed down year after year?

American history is full of official references to “the value and invocation of Divine guidance in deliberations and pronouncements of [both] the Founding Fathers and contemporary leaders . . .” (Lynch v. Donnelly, 1999). American heritage and modern life alike are wrought with often times unrecognized religious symbols, sayings and celebrations.
