President Donald Trump’s Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos, along wither her husband, Dick, had a profound interview with a group by the name of “The Gathering” back in 2001.
In it, Dick DeVos lamented that the “church, which ought to be, in our view, far more central to the life of the community, has been displaced by the public school as the center for activity.”
And politically correct atmosphere of today has nearly killed the church.
In fact, people have suppressed the simple act of praying in recent years — which is why Betsy DeVos wants to bring America back to the days where the freedom of expression is tolerated once more.
Which, of course, includes prayer.
Whether you’re a Christian, an atheist, a Muslim, an agnostic, or any other religion — the freedom to pray and exercise your First Amendment rights is one we should all desire.
Because in many countries around the world, you are punished by the government for showing any sign of worship to whichever religion you practice.
With Betsy DeVos at the helm, we can bolster the First Amendment and make American education great again.

In addition, the biblical roots of this administration go all the way to the top. The Washington Post reports:
On Thursday, at the National Prayer Breakfast, President Trump delivered a God-and-country-infused speech, appealing to Americans who believe in Christian nationalism — the belief that God has a uniquely Christian purpose for the United States.
“We can all be heroes to everybody, and they can be heroes to us,” Trump said, “as long as we open our hearts to God’s grace, America will be free, the land of the free, the home of the brave and the light to all nations.”
This speech followed the line of previous presidents who highlight faith as a part of America’s history and tradition, but Trump spent the bulk of his speech telling stories of Americans who sacrificed for others.
“America is a nation of believers, and together we are strengthened by the power of prayer,” Trump said.
Trump noted that God is mentioned four times by the Founding Fathers in the Declaration of Independence. Our currency declares “In God We Trust,” he pointed out, and our Pledge of Allegiance states, “We are one nation, under God.”
The words “praise be to God” are etched on top of the Washington Monument, Trump noted, “and those same words are etched in the hearts of people.”
