It’s always good to run across current legal documents that boldly reflect our nation’s godly heritage. I’m not talking about ancient history, but valid, active, present-day law. Today I was reading the Pennsylvania Constitution. Here’s what I found:
Preamble: “WE, the people of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, grateful to Almighty God for the blessings of civil and religious liberty, and humbly invoking His guidance, do ordain and establish this Constitution.”
Section 3: “All men have a natural and indefeasible right to worship Almighty God according to the dictates of their own consciences; no man can of right be compelled to attend, erect or support any place of worship or to maintain any ministry against his consent; no human authority can, in any case whatever, control or interfere with the rights of conscience, and no preference shall ever be given by law to any religious establishments or modes of worship.”
Question: Does your state constitution openly and reverently acknowledge God?
