After reviewing acknowledgments of God from all 50 state constitutions, one is faced with the prospect that maybe, the ACLU and the out-of-control federal courts are wrong!  If you found this to be "Food for thought" copy and send to as many as you think will be enlightened as I hope you were. (Please note that at no time is anyone told that they MUST worship God.)
