Very soon all of us who uphold traditional values will face a huge battle over the direction of the U.S. Supreme Court. The stakes are high and the winners will decide the kind of country we’ll leave for our children and grandchildren.


You cannot afford to sit this one out.


As you have probably heard, Justice David Souter has resigned from the high court and President Obama will very shortly announce his nominee for the vacancy. Based on what we already know, it will very likely be someone from the far-Left fringes of the law, who would advocate policies that you and I would barely recognize, on such important matters as religious freedom and the role of prayer and worship in society.


But all of that lies just ahead.


For now, I only want to alert you to one of the more amazing bills ever to have been introduced in Congress. It will serve as a valuable primer to help you understand the strong role played by the Christian faith in the foundation of the country. It’s a quick read and its facts cannot be denied.


The bill, called H. Res. (for House Resolution) 397 would, if passed, designate the first week in May as “America’s Spiritual Heritage Week.” It was introduced by Rep. Randy Forbes of Virginia, and timed to coincide with this year’s National Day of Prayer on May 7. Dr. Dobson appeared personally at the press conference in Washington, D.C., to lend his support to the legislation.


You can quickly read through this incredible piece of legislation yourself by clicking here. You can also access a short video update on this bill that I just recorded with my colleague Stuart Shepard by clicking here.


If you take the time to read the bill I guarantee you that you’ll have a new appreciation for the role played by the Christian faith in the founding of our country, and you will be much better equipped to sort through the noise as the debate over the Supreme Court vacancy reaches high decibel levels in the coming weeks.
