A must read!

The History of the United States of America is extraordinarily rich with detail and interwoven themes, that over the decades, have been watered down for simplicity’s sake. There are still a few who argue against the Christian origins of our nation and the lofty vision of the Founders to succeed in honest and free self government.
For example, clearly, at the time the Founders shut themselves off to convene in order to form a more “perfect union,” many of these Founders owned slaves, so what kind of morality is that? Such hypocrisy, you say! Well, wait just a minute before you pass judgement. Who hasn’t driven a little above the speed limit? Who never “stole” a cookie from the cookie jar without permission? Who, as an adult, never said or did something contrary to our beliefs? We ALL do this, for better or for worse. It is human nature to break the rules, some more than others. Still not a justification for slavery, but an explanation.
