The Magnificent Fifty: Foundation of Faith (Illinois)

Springfield, Illinois (Artist: Susan Cassidy Wilhoit)

Constitution Preamble (1870)

We, the people of the State of Illinois, grateful to Almighty God for the civil, political and religious liberty which He hath so long permitted us to enjoy and looking to Him for a blessing on our endeavors.

Amazing how so many of our states’ constitutions recognize the existence of God, isn’t it? Yet, the Freedom from Religion Foundation and their kind want nothing less than to scrub that fact from history. The purpose of this series of posts called “The Magnificent Fifty” is being published in an effort to combat that. Please share them.
