‘Sunday Morning on CBS’

I know readers of American Creation will appreciate the chance to see the very copy of the King James Bible used in the first presidential inauguration of George Washington in 1789. Word comes from Piers Vaughan, Master of St. John’s Masonic Lodge in New York City, of the taping today of a segment on the George Washington Inaugural Bible that will be broadcast Sunday, January 20 on CBS between 9 and 10 a.m.

The program, aptly titled Sunday Morning, sent correspondent Mo Rocca and a crew to Masonic Hall, the headquarters of the Grand Lodge of New York, where the priceless historical artifact was displayed on the altar of the Grand Lodge Room.

The bible is owned by St. John’s Lodge No. 1, several of whose brethren were on hand to explain this singular VSL’s amazing history, like Piers and Conor Moran.

I'm intrigued.

--FTR, I think Mo is funny. Enjoy him on

I agree Mo Rocca is a light weight. He didn't once interrupt as the Mason weighted President Washington down with more cherry tree myths than Parson Weems dared. Washington was remarkably reticent on religion, editing out any reference to Jesus in his speeches. We have forgotten the horrible religious persecution of first Protestants and then Catholics in the English Civil Wars. The founding fathers were mindful of these events and against the establishment of religion in the US.
