There is a group called Freedom From Religion Foundation who has decided to take it upon themselves to call forth the IRS to do something about Pastors who are speaking up about the immorality they see going on in our nation, at the highest level on down. It is being referred to as “electioneering.” To be sure, the Freedom From Religion Foundation missed a number of things along the way. On this Thanksgiving week, it is my honor to share a few links with you of authentic, American history. Each of these are Thanksgiving proclamations, and each of these contains the primary source, so that the reader can be quite certain of not only its source, but its authenticity.

Mr. David Barton, the owner of Wall Builders also has stated publicly that he has been waiting for the IRS to bring issue with the pastors that have been speaking out, as he has a plan together with the case for it, ready to go. This link contains a message from Mr. Barton, to all of us. David Barton, incidentally, owns numerous of the original manuscripts and writings of our Founders, and he owns, Wall Builders, the site, to which I have directed you, with this article. I truly look for this to be a situation that may play out badly, but I also, truly believe that it is one of the most worthy and significant battles that we need to have.
Be blessed this Thanksgiving, and don’t forget to thank GOD, from whom all blessings flow. May GOD be with those on the side of what is right, good and decent. May GOD once again, bless America!!!
