By Jerry Stewart - Vision Productions Allow me to give you a few facts about one of our past politicians and you tell me if you see much resemblance he may have had to any our present political leaders.

These days there's always a lot of talk about freedom of religion in America. Some say we should be able to openly acknowledge God and Christ in public. Others strongly disagree. But, I do think it's time we get one thing straight. The First Amendment battle being waged in our country today is not about what God we will serve. It's about getting rid of God in our country altogether, and all this talk about keeping Him out of our public schools and government buildings is just a smokescreen.
