On June 25, 1962, the Supreme Court stopped school prayer. Ronald Reagan said, March 6, 1984:
“From the early days of the American colonies, prayer in schools was practiced and revered as an important tradition. Indeed, for nearly 2 centuries of our history it was considered a natural expression of our religious freedom.
“Then in 1962, the Supreme Court declared school prayer illegal.”
“Well, I firmly believe the loving God who has blessed our land and made us a good caring people should never have been expelled from America’s classrooms.”
Senate Majority Leader Robert Byrd, who was born NOVEMBER 20, 1917, agreed, stating:
“In no other place in the United States are there so many…official evidences of…faith in God on the part of Government as there are in Washington…
On the south banks of Washington’s Tidal Basin, Jefferson still speaks:
‘Can the liberties of a nation be secure when we have removed a conviction that these liberties are the gift of God? Indeed I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just, that his justice cannot sleep forever.'”
Senator Robert Byrd concluded:
“Jefferson’s words are a forceful and explicit warning that to remove God from this country will destroy it.”
