I just bookmarked this page. I now have even more direct evidence proving you want a theocracy. You want the government to teach people a supernatural puppet master exists, when in reality science proves no such thing.
Then according to you Ian is wrong.

My mother's womb, of course.
Tell you what there isn’t enough room for all your hate filled post, so when you do one, I will say, “ There’s One”.
Hate isn't germane to the discussion topic, kiddo. According to you, I said Christians must abandon their religion to be American citizens. Post the quote where I said that.

Merreck Garland would have been like Kennedy making rulings based on the Constitution being a living breathing document rather then interpretating it for what it actually says.

That has WHAT to do with a right to have a hearing, much less a vote to have his nomination approved or not?

Who here can tell us who is generally and historically accepted to have drafted the Constitution and who can tell us what he is at times, referred to?

Who here is aware of what James Madison also wrote and felt with regard to "Memorial and Remonstrance Against Religious Assessments" in 1785? Who knows what it is about and how it relates to Amendment I of the Constitution?

Here are just a few excerpts from that.

"Because it is proper to take alarm at the first experiment on our liberties. We hold this prudent jealousy to be the first duty of Citizens, and one of the noblest characteristics of the late Revolution. The free men of America did not wait till usurped power had strengthened itself by exercise, and entagled the question in precedents. They saw all the consequences in the principle, and they avoided the consequences by denying the principle. We revere this lesson too much soon to forget it. Who does not see that the same authority which can establish Christianity, in exclusion of all other Religions, may establish with the same ease any particular sect of Christians, in exclusion of all other Sects? that the same authority which can force a citizen to contribute three pence only of his property for the support of any one establishment, may force him to conform to any other establishment in all cases whatsoever?"

"Because the Bill violates the equality which ought to be the basis of every law, and which is more indispensible, in proportion as the validity or expediency of any law is more liable to be impeached. If "all men are by nature equally free and independent," all men are to be considered as entering into Society on equal conditions; as relinquishing no more, and therefore retaining no less, one than another, of their natural rights. Above all are they to be considered as retaining an "equal title to the free exercise of Religion according to the dictates of Conscience." Whilst we assert for ourselves a freedom to embrace, to profess and to observe the Religion which we believe to be of divine origin, we cannot deny an equal freedom to those whose minds have not yet yielded to the evidence which has convinced us. If this freedom be abused, it is an offence against God, not against man: To God, therefore, not to man, must an account of it be rendered. As the Bill violates equality by subjecting some to peculiar burdens, so it violates the same principle, by granting to others peculiar exemptions. Are the quakers and Menonists the only sects who think a compulsive support of their Religions unnecessary and unwarrantable? can their piety alone be entrusted with the care of public worship? Ought their Religions to be endowed above all others with extraordinary privileges by which proselytes may be enticed from all others? We think too favorably of the justice and good sense of these demoninations to believe that they either covet pre-eminences over their fellow citizens or that they will be seduced by them from the common opposition to the measure. "

"Because the establishment proposed by the Bill is not requisite for the support of the Christian Religion. To say that it is, is a contradiction to the Christian Religion itself, for every page of it disavows a dependence on the powers of this world: it is a contradiction to fact; for it is known that this Religion both existed and flourished, not only without the support of human laws, but in spite of every opposition from them, and not only during the period of miraculous aid, but long after it had been left to its own evidence and the ordinary care of Providence. Nay, it is a contradiction in terms; for a Religion not invented by human policy, must have pre-existed and been supported, before it was established by human policy. It is moreover to weaken in those who profess this Religion a pious confidence in its innate excellence and the patronage of its Author; and to foster in those who still reject it, a suspicion that its friends are too conscious of its fallacies to trust it to its own merits."

"Because experience witnesseth that eccelsiastical establishments, instead of maintaining the purity and efficacy of Religion, have had a contrary operation. During almost fifteen centuries has the legal establishment of Christianity been on trial. What have been its fruits? More or less in all places, pride and indolence in the Clergy, ignorance and servility in the laity, in both, superstition, bigotry and persecution. Enquire of the Teachers of Christianity for the ages in which it appeared in its greatest lustre; those of every sect, point to the ages prior to its incorporation with Civil policy. Propose a restoration of this primitive State in which its Teachers depended on the voluntary rewards of their flocks, many of them predict its downfall. On which Side ought their testimony to have greatest weight, when for or when against their interest?"



If someone is looking for the basis and intent surrounding Amendment I, this is it. There are some people here and elsewhere trying to pass off the BS Madison refers to. Don't let someone else tell you what the Bible means, read it yourself and see the overall gist of Christ's teachings (as recorded by humans) for yourself. Christ was really not the bad guy, it is those who have exploited the ignorance and faith of their fellow human beings that have skewed, twisted and perverted what Christ taught to the point these same people have elected a human who only has to actually shoot someone in broad daylight on 5th avenue to complete his apprenticeship as the assistant to the Anti-Christ. Don't let these false teachers tell you Trump is an "honest" man or "a man of his word"......You don't have to listen to me, listen to TRUMP and his own words, his contradictions, his denials......his promotion of violence against those who dare to protest his actions.



How can anyone watch this and still call Trump a swell guy, much less a champion for Christianity? Wouldn't they be lying to themselves as much as Trump is lying to them? How can one say, yeah, I know Trump is an above average sinner and not a nice guy, but he's the one to lead the country? It makes no sense, unless there is something more behind it. It certainly is not connected to any sort of human or moral values, because why would someone select someone who has a record of cheating and lying to people to be places in a position of responsibility for not only being honest and fair to all Americans with regard to equal rights, but for leading the nation in that regard and the world, if one feels America should be a leader in the world. It is telling that Trump supporters actually admit that Trump is crude, rude, and without saying it, perhaps all the things those willing to admit it, would describe Trump as. What if we were to all act like our "leader" because he is leading the way and setting the example (should police officers break the law on a regular basis then expect the public to obey the law?) ? What sort of world, much less a "Christian" nation or world would it be?

Some are not here to discuss anything or pay attention to any facts or history, the are here to troll. Let them troll all they like, but it seems pointless to try to engage them or present them with reality and facts, because they are programmed (ordered) to ignore anything that gets in the way of the message they are on a mission to keep repeating, in spite of all that blows it out of the water. I find it hard not to engage, but I am trying to do so, less and less, since it is meaningless. What we can do however, is expose the BS they are trying to pass off for what it is, by continuing to present facts. Not to the trolls and robots, because they are programmed to ignore facts, but to those who the trolls and robots are seeking to appeal to, with their upside down "sin is good" ploys where Donald Trump is suddenly as virtuous as Christ himself, why the give away is that the Christians who voted for Trump claim to know he's an above average sinner, "but that's not why they voted for him"......while at the same time, they want Trump to select SCOTUS Justices who will override the Constitution of the U.S.A. with their version of their religion. It's essentially knowingly making a deal with the devil and actually thinking the devil is going to deliver on that deal without exacting a VERY heavy price for doing so. Again, don't listen to me, educate and inform yourselves. Compare what some Christians are trying to sell you, versus what the Bible says.......Ask yourself why one wants to bar homosexuals from being treated like any other human being, while electing someone who is an adulterer, a liar, a greedy, gluttonous, mean spirited narcissist among other non virtues, to lead the nation.
