Wrong as the link clearly proves in 1897 the US Supreme court ruled the Constitution and the Dec of Independence are linked.

I thought there was a wall between religion and government. Why are any priests, rabbi's,, ministers, Imams or grand pooba's leading any sort of prayer in our legislature?

That "religion of peace" would be the gun-toting Christians, right?
LOL, give it up. You're losing this battle and you know it. What a pathetic comment. You know what I'm referring to and you know it's a correct statement, which is why it bothers you so much.

You don't have the capability of debating using facts. You don't have a clue.

That was a phoney wall put up by liberal wackos. Religion and God have always been a part of the US and state governments. If you would have studied history you would know that!

Fail. Societies pre-dating Christianity and the Bible also outlawed murder. Pull your head out and try again.
