Yawn.
You seem to like taking quotes from our forefathers. Allow me to include one too.
Article 11 of the Treaty of Tripoli begins as follows, "As the Government of the United States of America is not, in any sense, founded on the Christian religion......"
It was ratified by Congress and signed into law by President Adams in 1796.
As for offending your creator, your creator is quite clear that when you are told that you message is not wanted, you are to move on. Your message isn't wanted. This forum is about marriage and civil rights, not religion.
This thread is not about religion, Jonah1 whined during his angry rant about religion.

I would like to quote to you some of our forefathers beliefs.
(1) George Washington First President of the U.S. quoted: "It is the duty of all nations to aknowledge the providence of Almighy God, to obey His will, to be grateful for His benefits, and humbly to implore His protection and favor."
(2) Senate Judiciary Committee report, January 19, 1853 quoted: "We are a Christian people, not because the law demands it, not to gain exclusive benefits or to avoid legal disabilities, but from choice and education; and in a land thus universally Christian, what is to be expected, what desired, but that we shall pay due regard to Christianity?"
(3) John Jay: First Chief-Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court quoted: "The Bible is the best of all books, for it is the word of God and teaches us the way to be happy in this world and in the next. Continue therefore to read it and to regulate your life by its precepts." Providence has given to our people the choice of their rulers, and it is the duty, as well as the privilege and interest of our Christian nation, to select and prefer Christians for their rulers."
(4) Joseph Story: U.S. Supreme Court Justice; Father of the American Jurisprudence, Placed on the Court by President James Madison quoted: "One of the beautiful boasts of our municipal jurisprudence is that Christianity is a part of the Common Law. There never has been a period in which the Common Law did not recognize Christianity as lying at its foundations. I verily believe Christianity necessary to the support of civil society."
(5) Benjamin Franklin: Signer of the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution quoted: "I've lived, sir, a long time, and the longer I live, the more convincing proofs I see of this truth: That God governs in the affairs of men. If a sparrow cannot fall to the ground without his notice, is it probable that an empire can rise without His aid? We have been assured in the sacred writings that unless the Lord builds the house, they labor in vain who build it. I firmly believe this, and I also believe that without His concurring aid, we shall succeed in this political building no better than the builders of Babel."
(6)House Judiciary Committee Report, March 27, 1854 quoted: "At the time of the adoption of the Constitution and the Amendments, the universal sentiment was that Christianity should be encouraged. In this age there can be no substitute for Christianity. That was the religion of the founders of the republic and they expected it to remain the religion of their descendants."
I quoted from 6 different sources on this subject of our forefathers and as I understand them, they believed in God and thought that Christianity should be the religion of this nation.
take it to the history channel debate. Im sure big d is there as he is an expert.

I am perfectly calm Frankie, I do get tired of explaining simple English words to you. I really wish you would read a post before responding to it.

I made no claim, I didnít imply anything, I didnít state anything, I was just looking for clarification on an ambiguous post made by someone else, not you.

I am an investor, I donít know if KiMare has a problem with that or not.

I've said all along that I play them on their turf. But of course you have to deal with a few meddlers that think they're gonna "save" you along the way.

From what, I still haven't figured out. Jessica Lunsford wasn't saved. Neither was Zahra Baker. Nor Jesse Dirkhising. So just what the hell is gonna "save" me?

Thought I'd share this with you it's on a sign behind the VFW bar.
"What is a veteran?"
A veteran is someone who, at one point in his/her life, wrote a blank check made payable to the United States of America for an amount of up to and including their life. That is Honor, and there are way too many people in this country who no longer understand it.
We all write blank checks, Frankie...

I'm just not impressed with the self-aggrandizing that goes on in the military. You're always asking to be specially recognized for being warriors. You want--no, you DEMAND to be treated as heroes.

And who can blame you? Countries have always treated you like gods. They build monuments to you. They carve our special government programs for you and your families. They throw you parades on specially created holidays for you. Restaurants, car dealerships, furniture shops, etc. give you great discounts if you show a military ID.

I just don't buy into it.

You say that you fought for MY rights to be free. Exactly how did your fighting in Vietnam impact me?

It makes me sick to think that ANYBODY would pick up a gun or drop a bomb for MY benefit. I don't want that blood on my hands.

I know that I'm not alone. Many people feel that way. Entire religions feel that way. And several veterans feel that way as well.

I won't stand in the way while you pat yourself on the back. If that's what you MUST do. But don't expect me to participate in what I believe is a sickening display of "might makes right".

I've met heroes, Frankie. None of them were heroes because they pulled a trigger.

And to be clear, that does not make me unpatriotic. I love my country. I just don't love it enough to kill for it.

Oh, I don't know... Maybe it's the same reason that racial minorities, women, religious minorities, the handicapped, etc. have fought the same battles to be "accepted" or "respected".

If you have some kind of keen insight that allows you to call us "disordered", then show us what it is. Are you and MD? Do you have an educational background that would allow us to refer to you as a scientist?

And I picked up on your ridiculous "discomania". I hardly lost. Anyone with access to Google can check these things out before posting. I did so and responded appropriately. I said "how stupid".

Pack it in, you scientific wannabe...
