Synergy already responded more than adequately, but you are being a complete hypocrite here. Please define compassion - is it donating to charities that help the needy? Is it volunteering? You have NO CLUE about what Syn or I may or may not do and yet you feel you have the knowledge to judge us as having no compassion because we think it is wrong for the govt to keep taking more and more from the people who make this country work and who already pay over 70% of the taxes in this country in order to fund programs that do not help people better their lives. Instead these programs give just enough to get by (while discouraging marriage) and keep people enslaved to the govt. That isn't compassion - it is control. Study after study shows that Repubs donate far more than Dems to charity. Dems idea of charity is raising taxes on other people, and they speak so condescendingly about how they themselves "SHOULD pay more taxes". And yet these are the same people who take every deduction they can in order to NOT pay more in taxes. No one is forcing them to take those deductions.
And if you want a lesson in insults, just read virtually any post from IO or CN, they have one message that they repeat ad nauseum. Repubs are stupid. Repubs are greedy, Repubs don't care about starving children, Repubs don't care about soldiers dying, every decision Bush made was to get oil. And on and on. And they ignore every fact they are presented with that illustrates the weakness of their position. So before you go talking about the splinter in the eye of the Right, how about doing something about the plank in the eye of the Left.
Do you really think I need a lesson in insults? I meant CN is beneath you and Synergy in intelligence. Not as a person. When all you have to reply to him is one word insults it shows a total lack of compassion to his point of view. I have very little compassion for anyone. Mainly just children.

I'm going to jump in here. I have given the one or two word replies, so I'll answer. Obviously, you've not read CN's posts. For you to even suggest that a conservative show HIM compassion is reprehensible. I have absolutely NO COMPASSION for his point of view. Are you for real??????

Religious institutions that use government power in support of themselves and force their views on persons of other faiths, or of no faith, undermine all our civil rights. Moreover, state support of an established religion tends to make the clergy unresponsive to their own people, and leads to corruption within religion itself. Erecting the 'wall of separation between church and state,' therefore, is absolutely essential in a free society.

I'm hard headed because you are being impossible? Just move on. I'm not an OLD DOG, however, YOU are being a JERK. Here is an idea. Why don't you ask CN to show some compassion? What a novel idea. Yes. Post to CN that he should show some of the compassion that you are so h*ll bent on to the conservatives. Can't wait!

The whole point of the First Amendment was that no one religion would be considered the STATE religion - as the Church of England was the state religion of England and enjoyed privileges above other religions. The letter from Jefferson from which the "wall of separation" quotation is lifted is to a group of Baptist ministers who feared a state religion would be established in the United States. His point was to assure them that people would be free to worship as they please. No where is there intent that the First Amendment requires that the public arena be "free from religion" - which is the tack so many of the Left try to take. In "Notes on the State of Virginia" he asks "Can the liberties of a nation be secure when we have removed a conviction that these liberties are the gift of God?" As president he signed bills appropriating funds for chaplains in the military and in Congress. Freedom OF religion - absolutely. Freedom FROM religion - a complete twisting of intent.

We are one nation under god.
That would be from the 1954 revision of the Pledge of Alligence, just a tad later than the US Constitution which is the founding document of this country.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pledge_of_Allegi...
The Pledge of Allegiance was written in 1892 by Francis Bellamy (18551931), who was a Baptist minister, a Christian socialist,[3] and the cousin of socialist utopian novelist Edward Bellamy (18501898).

(American Exceptionalism)
Prior to February 1954, no endeavor to get the Pledge officially amended succeeded. The final successful push came from George MacPherson Docherty. Some American presidents honored Lincoln's birthday by attending services at the church Lincoln attended, New York Avenue Presbyterian Church by sitting in Lincoln's pew on the Sunday nearest February 12. On February 7, 1954, with President Eisenhower sitting in Lincoln's pew, the church's pastor, George MacPherson Docherty, delivered a sermon based on the Gettysburg Address titled "A New Birth of Freedom." He argued that the nation's might lay not in arms but its spirit and higher purpose. He noted that the Pledge's sentiments could be those of any nation, that "there was something missing in the pledge, and that which was missing was the characteristic and definitive factor in the American way of life." He cited Lincoln's words "under God" as defining words that set the United States apart from other nations.

President Eisenhower had been baptized a Presbyterian very recently, just a year before. He responded enthusiastically to Docherty in a conversation following the service. Eisenhower acted on his suggestion the next day and on February 8, 1954, Rep. Charles Oakman (R-Mich.), introduced a bill to that effect. Congress passed the necessary legislation and Eisenhower signed the bill into law on Flag Day, June 14, 1954.[17] Eisenhower stated "From this day forward, the millions of our school children will daily proclaim in every city and town, every village and rural school house, the dedication of our nation and our people to the Almighty.... In this way we are reaffirming the transcendence of religious faith in America's heritage and future; in this way we shall constantly strengthen those spiritual weapons which forever will be our country's most powerful resource, in peace or in war."[18]

The phrase "under God" was incorporated into the Pledge of Allegiance June 14, 1954, by a Joint Resolution of Congress amending 4 of the Flag Code enacted in 1942.

...One objection[22] states that a democratic republic built on freedom of dissent should not require its citizens to pledge allegiance to it, and that the First Amendment to the United States Constitution protects one's right to refrain from speaking or standing (also a form of speech).[21] Another objection lies in the fact that the people who are most likely to recite the Pledge every day, small children in schools, cannot really give their consent or even completely understand the Pledge they are taking.

Without God there will always be something missing. It's our duty to teach them to understand the pledge they are taking and if you don't consent to it you're not an american.

As president he signed bills appropriating funds for chaplains in the military and in Congress. Freedom OF religion - absolutely. Freedom FROM religion - a complete twisting of intent.
I was in public elementary school prior to the Supreme Court's ruling on daily devotionals, when Christian Prayer was read over the PA System for the benefit of all. The Christian Majority in the school district felt secure in the privileges they enjoyed as sanctioned by the state. Even as a tyke, I wondered how my Jewish classmates felt under this daily reminder that they were different and not included in these daily prayers.

"No where is there intent that the First Amendment requires that the public arena be "free from religion" - which is the tack so many of the Left try to take."

Now you've changed the argument, in the previous post you made reference to Freedom from Religion, which is not the same as making the public arena be "free from religion". Freedom from Religion is they very point that Jefferson is discussing in the quotes I supplied:

It does me no injury for my neighbor to say there are 20 gods, or no god. It neither picks my pocket nor breaks my leg.
-Thomas Jefferson

Religious institutions that use government power in support of themselves and force their views on persons of other faiths, or of no faith, undermine all our civil rights.
-Thomas Jefferson, letter to Danbury Baptists

Which is the very condition that exists when schools promote prayer, or when public property is turned over to religious displays during religious holidays. Providing Chaplins in the Military or Congress to meet to the needs of adults is not quite the same thing.
..........
In "Notes on the State of Virginia" he asks "Can the liberties of a nation be secure when we have removed a conviction that these liberties are the gift of God?"

Putting this quote in context it appears that Jefferson was referring to that peculiar southern institution. Besides the personal religious convictions of any single person are not the issue, Freedom of Religion means one god, many gods, or no god, the state should not promote any position. Course the reality is that religion is a powerful tool and personal convictions that are so clear to each of us must surley be of equal benefit to others, if only they could see The Truth.

http://www.monticello.org/site/jefferson/quot...
"For in a warm climate, no man will labour for himself who can make another labour for him. This is so true, that of the proprietors of slaves a very small proportion indeed are ever seen to labor. And can the liberties of a nation be thought secure when we have removed their only firm basis, a conviction in the minds of the people that these liberties are the gift of God? That they are not to be violated but with his wrath? Indeed I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just: that his justice cannot sleep for ever ...." - Notes on the State of Virginia, Query XVIII

So, for more than 150 years, from 1789 until 1942 when the Pledge of Alligence was adopted by Congress, there were no True Americans. Now some might ask why is it necessary to take a Pledge of Alligence, why is good citizenship not enough to prove support of the Republic. Words are just words, but deeds prove the point, Freedom Fries come to mind.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_Co...
The Constitution was adopted on September 17, 1787, by the Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and ratified by conventions in eleven states. It went into effect on March 4, 1789.

The United States Constitution can be changed through the amendment process. Constitutional amendments are added to it, altering its effect. The first ten amendments, ratified by three-fourths of the states in 1791, are known as the Bill of Rights.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pledge_of_Allegi...
The United States Congress officially recognized the Pledge for the first time, in the following form, on June 22, 1942:

I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the Republic for which it stands, one Nation indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.

Are you an American? I feel nothing but pride when I say the pledge of allegiance. A sense of belonging. It's what are soldiers die for to protect. It seems you don't believe in God if you don't think you need his help to govern your life.
