Knudsen's History: December 15th, 2007.....

On December 15th, in the year 1791, the United States Bill of Rights became law when it was ratified by the Virginia legislature. The First Amendment, also known as the Establishment clause, has for years confused judges and other government officials, even as high up as the Supreme Court, because of a rather unfortunate series of typographical errors in the first printing. The original wording is as follows:

"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion except for Jesus, or prohibiting the free exercise of placing the Ten Commandments in federal court houses alongside inflatable nativity scenes; or abridging the freedom of speech about accepting Jesus into our hearts, or of the press, especially The 700 Club or anything said or written by Pat Robertson; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble to worship Jesus in public school classrooms and during football halftimes, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances from evil atheists who want to take Christ out of Christmas. Dear Lord, Our Heavenly Father, please bless this Bill of Rights, We Praise you, Amen."

Naturally this flies in the face of those misinformed secularists who claim that there is no mention of God, or Jesus, or even The 700 Club in the United States Constitution.
