Former Solicitor Barbara Morgan stated in the true bill indictment that Mike Hunt killed Thomas Joel Lewis willfully and with malice aforethought against the laws of the State of South Carolina after unloading his Ruger 9mm pistol on him in the woods. Aiken County has the distinction of being the only county in South Carolina with a criminal sheriff who has been indicted for murder.

All this racism from both sides are not informing anybody of the trouble this nation is in. When we condone same sex marriages, take the earnings of one and give to anothe, both of which our Lord forbids - One is 'robbery' the other was the reason that a nation was destroyed by God.
Let's be reasonable here. Wrong is wrong no matter what color the individual who commits it happens to be.
I'm against Obama because of his prejudice, even against law and order. I'm against hime because of his dislike of America and is trying to turn our great nation into a mediorce one. And don't call me racist because my choice of a president would have been Herman Cain There's a smart man and he knows the values and principles this nation was built on. He wants to keep America great, while Obama called our sucess "arrogance"

Unfortunately we do not live in a nation that is a theocracy. There is rule of law that guarantees freedom and equality. Throughout history religion has condemned and persecuted and our founding fathers were wise enough to see that. It is about time that we take a look at the homosexual community and stop the bigotry and intolerance towards them. I am not even going to comment upon your block of text but I will say that backing Herman Cain and being a good Christian runs counter because he is a adulterous cheat.

I wonder if this SC state senator has ever checked out the Mary Buckley Foundation web-site?

I don't know if Cain assaulted those women - I do know that many blacks hated him with a passion for his political stance and extremists do not mind lying. I suppose that FDR and JFK should never have been elected - they were both womanizers
Some Democrats can play ugly, Republicans too but not as bad as Democrats so we really don't know for sure about Cain.

Comparing cain to fdr and kennedy...really??? And when you leave a wake of sexual harassments in your career and run for office to have it come out and go home to have a meeting with your wife which results in withdrawl you do know. Yes both sides are bad but last time i checked democrats were not beating a bible over my head while sexully accosting everything that moves with a preference for same sex minors but cain is straight so one positive according to the bible.

Comparing the actions - not the achievements.
And I neglected to name Clinton, who did leave a wake of sexual harrassments in his career, from his governeorship presidency and no one seems to mind. He desecrated the Oval Office,an area that Ronald Reagan revered so highly that he would not even remove his coat while there.

PS - And speaking of relying on God and the Bible, so did our Founders.
"The highest glory of the American Revolution was this: it connected in one indissoluble bond the principles of civil government with the principles of Christianity."-- John Adams (1821)
"I desire to bless and praise the name of God most high for appointing me my birth in a land of Gospel Light where the glorious tidings of a Saviour and of pardon and salvation through Him have been continually sounding in mine ears."
We have been a blessed nation because our very foundation was based on a belief in God."
The first American document(Mayflower Compact) gives God credit: "We whose names are underwritten, the loyal subjects of our dread sovereign Lord, King James, by the grace of God, of Great Britain, France and Ireland king, defender of the faith, etc., having undertaken, for the glory of God, and advancement of the Christian faith..."
The Great Seal contains the 'eye of God' and the latin words "He has favored our undertakings"
And in []n 1778 to the General Assembly of the State of Virginia "We have staked the whole future of American civilization, not upon the power of government, far from it. We’ve staked the future of all our political institutions upon our capacity…to sustain ourselves according to the Ten Commandments of God.”
And last but not least Psalms tells us "Blessed is the ntion whose God is the Lord"
And you can't deny that we have been a blessed nation, however, the more God decreases, the more our blessings decrease.
This nation was founded for the freedom to worship and not freedom from worhsip.

Better to have sexual relations in the white house than to preside over needless war and death ie iraq. Ronald has become more myth than truth and in reality he was a divorced actor who drove our nation into grinding debt while giving lip service to the christian right to get their vote. Also he did raise taxes omg shocker. Clinton, fdr, and kennedy are regarded as excellent presidents. Clinton presided over the largest economic expansion the usa has seen in modern history. Fdr new deal great depression ender. Kennedy cuban missle crisis laid foundation for vision of future. What was cains actions and achievements sex and pizza come on.

I give up you want a theocracy move to iran but most of our founding fathers were not devote believers in god. That is historical fact and please dont mention money or the pledge of allegiance.

Also would like to point out it took quite a while for the declaration of independence and constitution to mean much if you were not white and male.

If you like i can put up some quotes from our founding fathers that detail separation of church and state. I believe them more than the mayflower compact. However it will not make much of a difference since you most likely learned history from bible school and watching glen beck while worshipping fox news outside of church.

well here goes

Adams: "The Government of the United States is not in any sense founded on the
Christian religion."

Paine: "I would not dare to so dishonor my Creator God by attaching His name to
that book (the Bible)."

Madison: "What influence in fact have Christian ecclesiastical establishments had on
civil society? In many instances they have been upholding the thrones of
political tyrrany. In no instance have they been seen as the guardians of
the liberties of the people. Rulers who wished to subvert the public liberty
have found in the clergy convenient auxiliaries. A just government,
instituted to secure and perpetuate liberty, does not need the clergy."

Jefferson: "All persons shall have full and free liberty of religious opinion; nor shall any be compelled to frequent or maintain any religious institution": freedom for religion, but also freedom from religion

Washington: "Of all the animosities which have existed among mankind, those which are caused by difference of sentiments in religion appear to be the most inveterate and distressing, and ought most to be deprecated. I was in hopes that the enlightened and liberal policy, which has marked the present age, would at least have reconciled Christians of every denomination so far that we should never again see the religious disputes carried to such a pitch as to endanger the peace of society."

And final tidbit only 7 percent of the USA population belonged to a church when the Declaration of Independence was signed.

The occupants of the Mayflower were among the firest to establish America - And the reason they Came here was to worship. I learned history back when they taught it as it really was. Nothing was changed. Much has been delete. That is a shame. Students really need to know America's history from the very Beginning. Without knowing it they can't fully appreciate this great nation
'Separation of Church and state' does not appear anywhere in the Constitution. The only place it appears is in a letter from Jefferson to the Danbury Baptists.
The Congregationalist was trying to force The Danbury Baptists to join their denomination. Jefferson informed the Baptists that Governemt had no right to force one denomination over another. Jefferson himself conducted church services at the Capitol. The Founders placed The Ten Commandments at the Capitoland they still remain there
How can you not beleive the Mayflower Compact (first American document) It still exists. Check it out
