Faith of our Fathers
Faith of Our Fathers is a fascinating documentary film that takes a look at what the founding fathers of the United States intended when they framed the Constitution and wrote the First Amendment religion clauses. Were the fathers of our country like Thomas Jefferson trying to create a Christian nation, a secular paradise, or something in between?
The documentary takes a look at how our understanding of church and state relations has changed over time due to Supreme Court decisions and cultural pressures. From Everson vs. Board of Education to the most recent decisions over displays of the Ten Commandments, such interpretations are explored in comparison to our nation''s founders'' original intentions.
"And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes, and our sacred Honor." - Declaration of Independence
