No Christian Heritage in the New Capital Visitor Center

World Net Daily has an article about the new visitor center at the Capitol. Here is the opening lines.

American taxpayers have spent more than $600 million on a new visitors' center at the Capitol in Washington, D.C., and it will have acres of marble floors and walls, photographs of Earth Day, information about an AIDS rally and details about the nation's industrial sector. What it will not include is America's Christian heritage.

This is certainly not the first anti-Christian act of this kind. And it probably won't be the last.

Wallbuilders has posted this video on YouTube which covers some aspects of the move away from our Christian heritage.

If you would like to learn more about the revision of our history at our national monuments, go to the National Treasures website.

I wouldn't trust Wallbuilders as far as I could throw them. They distort history as bad as the secularists who want to erase Christian Heritage from the public square. America's Founding philosophical heritage is complicated. There was a Christian or "Judeo-Christian" component to it. But there were also secular, pagan and freethinking components that were every bit as if not more so important as the traditional religious components. But Wallbuilders won't tell you about them.

Whether you trust Wallbuilders or not, that doesn't negate the fact that no mention of our Christian roots is in the Capitol visitor center.
