American Minute with Bill Federer
The United Nations Charter was signed JUNE 26, 1945, by 51 member nations.
Two months earlier, President Truman addressed the delegates:
"At no time in history has there been a more important Conference than this one in San Francisco which you are opening today...
We beseech our Almighty God to guide us in the building of a permanent monument to those who gave their lives that this moment might come."
In 1953, President Eisenhower addressed the UN:
"The whole book of history reveals mankind's never-ending quest for peace and mankind's God-given capacity to build."
On June 10, 1963, Dwight Eisenhower told the Convention of the National Junior Chamber of Commerce in Minneapolis:
"The United Nations has seemed to be two distinct things to the two worlds divided by the iron curtain...
To the free world it has seemed that it should be a constructive forum...
To the Communist world it has been a convenient sounding board for their propaganda, a weapon to be exploited in spreading disunity and confusion."
Former President Herbert Hoover told the American Newspaper Publishers Association in 1959:
"I suggest that the United Nations be reorganized...with those peoples who disavow communism, who stand for morals and religion, and who love freedom...
What the world needs today is a definite, spiritual mobilization of the nations who believe in God against this tide of Red agnosticism."
"It is a proposal for moral and spiritual cooperation of God-fearing free nations...rejecting an atheistic other world."
