American Minute with Bill Federer

The 20th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, ratified in 1933, changed the date of Presidential Inaugurations from March 4th to JANUARY 20th.

Franklin Roosevelt stated in his Inaugural Address, 1945: “Almighty God has blessed our land.”

Harry S Truman, 1949: “We believe that all men are created equal because they are created in the image of God.”

Dwight Eisenhower, 1953: “This is the work that awaits us all, to be done with bravery, with charity, and with prayer to Almighty God.”

John F. Kennedy, 1961: “The rights of man come not from the generosity of the state but from the hand of God.”

Lyndon B. Johnson, 1965: “The judgment of God is harshest on those who are most favored.”

Richard Nixon, 1969: “As all are born equal in dignity before God, all are born equal in dignity before man.”

Gerald Ford, 1974: “To do what is right as God gives me to see the right.”

Jimmy Carter, 1977: “‘What does the Lord require of thee, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God.'”

Ronald Reagan, 1981: “With God’s help, we can and will resolve the problems which now confront us. And after all, why shouldn’t we believe that? We are Americans.”
