This is the final installment in the series (unfortunately, I posted them in the order I took the pictures, not in alphabetical order). I hope you’ve enjoyed them as much as I’ve enjoyed sharing them with you.

Let me know if you find putting them all under one tab at the top of the blog useful. I’d love for them to be shared, and that might make it easier.

God bless, and God bless these United States of America!

The Magnificent Fifty: Foundation of Faith (North Dakota)

Constitution Preamble (1889)

We, the people of North Dakota, grateful to Almighty God for the blessings of civil and religious liberty, do ordain and establish this constitution.


Have you been noticing how many of the state preambles have verbiage similar to this? So many have stated their gratefulness to “Almighty God” for their civil and religious liberties. How is it, then, that the Freedom From Religion Foundation can make the claim that faith and religion should not be referenced as part of the fabric of our founding?
