To the Giles County School Board: We support and defend your right to display the 10 Commandments in Giles county schools.
Our nation was founded on Judeo‑Christian principles as expressed in the 10 Commandments.
Author David Barton (The Christian Roots of America) says that of the approximate 250 “founding fathers” who helped create and support the Constitution and Declaration of Independence, most believed in the Bible.
Among these were Patrick Henry, Sam Adams and John Hancock.
President George Washington stressed the importance of morality and religion in government.
Reason and experience forbid us to expect national morality can prevail with the exclusion of religious principle.
The 10 Commandments are the basis for many of our laws.
If for no other reason, they are good psychology for people co‑existing in society.
We are praying for you.
Spring Valley United Methodist Church Charge
