Harrisburg, Pennsylvania (Artist: Susan Cassidy Wilhoit)
Constitution Preamble (1776)
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.
Folks, is there no such thing as irony? The men and women of the Freedom from Religion Foundation (FFRF) make bold claims about a “godless” Constitution and the godlessness of our Founding Fathers, yet the words above seem to stand in stark contrast to their claims. Again, the “wall of separation” as defined by the modern “intellects” was nowhere to be found in 1776.
Annapolis, Maryland (Artist: Susan Cassidy Wilhoit)
Constitution Declaration of Rights (1867)
We, the people of the state of Maryland, grateful to Almighty God for our civil and religious liberty.
Augusta, Maine (Artist: Susan Cassidy Wilhoit)
Constitution Preamble (1820)
We the people of Maine acknowledge with grateful hearts the goodness of the Sovereign Ruler of the Universe in affording us an opportunity… and imploring God’s aid and direction in its accomplishments.

Baton Rouge, Louisiana (Artist: Susan Cassidy Wilhoit)
Constitution Preamble (1921)
We, the people of the State of Louisiana, grateful to Almighty God for the civil, political, economic, and religious liberties we enjoy.
To accomplish their goals, nearly every state constitution will have to be re-written. But that is the depth to which the Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF) in Wisconsin and their 20,000 members (a tiny fraction of our population) must go should they want to remove God and faith from the public square and our nation’s foundations.
