A “Christian Nation” Turned Pagan?

America was founded upon Judeo-Christian Law, recognizing that all rights come from God alone, and that we were totally dependent on God.  Growing up as a child these beliefs were often reflected in the television and movies we watched, and within society as a whole. These days some of the most popular television shows and […]
