American Minute with Bill Federer
MAR. 15- '1st Amendment written to protect religious values from government tyranny'-Reagan

On MARCH 15, 1941, Franklin Roosevelt warned at the Dinner of White House Correspondents:

"Modern tyrants find it necessary to eliminate all democracies...

A few weeks ago I spoke of...freedom of speech and expression, freedom of every person to worship God in his own way...

If we fail - if democracy is superseded by slavery - then those...freedoms, or even the mention of them, will become forbidden things.

Centuries will pass before they can be revived...

When dictatorships disintegrate - and pray God that will be sooner...then our country must continue to play its great part...

May it be said of us in the days to come that our children and our children's children rise up and call us blessed."

The Senate voted down letting children voluntarily pray in public schools on MARCH 15, 1984.

President Reagan said:

"I am deeply disappointed that, although a majority of the Senate voted for it, the school prayer amendment fell short."


On September 25, 1982, Ronald Reagan said:

"Unfortunately, in the last two decades we've experienced an onslaught of such twisted logic that if Alice were visiting America, she might think she'd never left Wonderland.

We're told that it somehow violates the rights of others to permit students in school who desire to pray to do so.

Clearly this infringes on the freedom of those who choose to pray, the freedom taken for granted since the time of our Founding Fathers."

Reagan continued:

"To prevent those who believe in God from expressing their faith is an outrage...

The relentless drive to eliminate God from our schools...should be stopped."

Ronald Reagan said February 25, 1984:

"Sometimes I can't help but feel the First Amendment is being turned on its head."

Reagan told the Alabama Legislature, MARCH 15, 1982:

"To those who cite the First Amendment as reason for excluding God from more and more of our institutions and every-day life, may I just say:

The First Amendment of the Constitution was not written to protect the people of this country from religious values; it was written to protect religious values from government tyranny."
