Congress Introduces “American Spiritual Heritage Week” Resolution

  Twenty-five members of the Congress introduced HOurse Resolution 397 to the House of Representatives earlier this month. This resolution acknowledges many different facts relating to the Spiritual acknowledgement of the founding fathers of America, and various practices that occurred in the years following the signing of the Bill of Rights.

  This resolution states that religious faith “has been acknowledged and incorporated into all 3 branches of the Federal Government;”; “ploitical scientists have documented that the most frequently cited source in the political period known as The Founding Era was the Bible”;  “Congress frequently appropriated money for missionaries and for religious instruction”; and “the Declaration of Independence with its 4 direct religious acknowledgemnts referring to God as the Creator”, and many more points made in the sixteen page document serve as credible arguments to allow the four points that the law, if passed, would resolve. Those four points are:

1) Affirm “the rich spiritual and diverse religious history of our Nation’s founding and subesquent history”

2)Recognize “that the religious foundations of faith on which America was built are critical underpinnings of our Nation’s most valuable institutions”

3) “Rejects, in the strongest possible terms, any effort to remove, obscure, or purposely omit such history from our Nation’s public buildings and educational resources”

4) Supports a  week to celebrate “America’s Spritual Heritage Week” every year in “appreciation of and education on America’s history of religious faith.

  Attempts to contact Representative John Yarmuth regarding his views on this resolution have yet to be successful. This resolution has yet to receive much attention in media circles, despite the fiasco that has occurred in Frisco, Texas over the distribution of religious literature.
