[Note: Regarding the question of whether the founding fathers established the U.S. as a Christian nation, they also accepted the principle of religious freedom whereby there were no legal penalties against deists like Benjamin Franklin and Thomas Jefferson. The problem today is that identifiably Biblical values have been legally banned from the public arena (the Ten Commandments have been outlawed on public property but pagan deities are not). While Bible reading and prayer are legally prohibited from public schools, the religion of secular Humanism (based upon the principle that ethics are autonomous and situational) is preached in those same schools every day. The founding fathers never intended that.

Recently, I had a 4-part series on concerning the real meaning of the Statue of Liberty (SL). No doubt, on the upcoming History Channel program about this, American Freemasons will assert that the SL is simply a gift from the people of France symbolizing freedom. However, as I indicated, the SL’s designer, Auguste Bartholdi. originally planned the Statue to be the Egyptian goddess Isis and located at the Suez Canal. Bartholdi was initiated into the Grand Orient Freemasons of France on October 14, 1875. The Grand Orient was involved in the conceptualization of the SL, including the seven pointed rays of light emanating from the Statue’s head (exactly like an ancient engraving of the Assyrian/Babylonian equivalent of Isis named Semiramis) and the Masonic keystone in her left hand. Freemason Henri Martin encouraged the project, and Bartholdi even convened his lodge on June 19, 1884 to review the SL before it was shown to the U.S. committee.

The founding fathers of America were well-versed in the classics, and the phrase “Annuit Coeptis” above the pyramid on the dollar bill (originally on the National Seal adopted June 20, 1782) is adapted from Aeneid (by Virgil), which says “Jupiter favour us in our undertaking.” “Novus Ordo Seclorum,” also on the National Seal and dollar bill is adapted from Virgil’s Eclogues. David Ovason has described the astrological orientation of Washington, D.C. involving Jupiter and the constellation Virgo (which is associated with the goddess Isis). For example, he shows that Washington is laid out so that every August 3 the sun shines down Pennsylvania Avenue striking the pyramidion on the top of the Post Office tower.]
