Some of us won't burn. We're just trying to get a nice crisp tan. Mmmm, I love the smell of bacon in the frying pan. Hasn't anyone ever told you "hell" that old saying about not throwing stones in glass houses? You can point that finger all you want but you've got three pointing back at yourself. I bet some of the folks you're dissing will save you a seat right beside of them in hell.

Hmm, maybe they are removing God talk because religion and government are supposed to be separate? Sorry, your days of Christian privilege have come to an end.
The separation of church and state, I think, is an idea that is largely misunderstood by many people in the country.

The constitution itself does not contain the words "separation of church and state". Those words first appeared in a letter written by Thomas Jefferson in 1802.

I believe, this confusion has been deliberately promoted by those who don't want the public policies they promote to be subjected to any sort of moral scrutiny.

**********
Our US Constitution states, "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof."

Both the free exercise clause and the establishment clause --place restrictions on the government-- concerning laws they pass or interfering with religion.

--No restrictions-- are placed on religions except perhaps that a religious denomination cannot become the state religion.
**********

The constitution doesn't forbid the invoking of God's guidance in the everyday functions of government. Nor does the constitution forbid legislators from from considering the teachings of God's law as laid out in the ten commandments when formulating laws.

Our laws should have a moral basis. That seems obvious to me in the following.

"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof."

To say a legislator --cannot consider-- his religeous beliefs when writing new laws would be prohibiting "free exercise" of his religion.

As stated in the first part, "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion" it is obvious that congress cannot pass laws that would create a government sanctioned church.

My personal understanding of our constitutionally guaranteed "freedom of religion" is that it means we are free to practice any religion we choose, anywhere, anytime, anyway we choose -- as long as we do not infringe on someone elses freedoms.

It also means that we are free --not-- to practice or believe in any form of religion -- if we so choose.

Agreed! Religion has no place in politics. This country was founded on the freedom from religious persecution. Republicans are trying to take that away.
The moral roadmap laid out in the ten commandments, was pretty much the basis for our constitution.

It is true, the people who came here to this country had lived under an oppressive government that restricted their free exercise of religion -- but that doesn't mean they came here to escape religion, nor God's influence in their government.

They came here and established a new government, based on personal freedom and choice. The majority of the men who established that government were religious, God fearing men.

They simply wanted to build a country where the individual -- not the government -- would decide how they would worship.

They wanted a country where the government did not control or restrict religious activity.

They wanted a country where the church did not control the government and dictate how everyone must worship.

People with religious convictions have every right to have a say in how they will be governed -- and to try to see that laws enacted are both moral and just.

"CyanCrane", I can't remember of any Republican trying to control my religious activities nor to interfere with my freedom of religion.

Could you give us some examples of that happening?

Can you prove any of that? Do you actually see and talk to him or just doing it inside your own head?
