What part of "shall not be infringed" eludes you?
What part of "A well regulated militia" eludes you? And how do you know the founders imagined handguns and assault rifles? Show your work.

"Well regulated" in the vernacular of the time meant, "in working order."The phrase "well-regulated" was in common use long before 1789, and remained so for a century thereafter. It referred to the property of something being in proper working order. Something that was well-regulated was calibrated correctly, functioning as expected.

If the founders couldn't imagine today's personal firearms in the context of the Second Amendment, then how could they imagine radio, television, and the internet in the context of the First Amendment?

See how that works?

The government's, nor the church's definition has absolutely nothing to do with my relationship with my wife (OUR marriage), so what do I have to worry about?

The founders were not stupid people. They knew fully well that advancements in "arms" would take place in the future, as they had in the past.

Handguns?

Pretty simple concept (for your simple mind).

Let's say the church has $1,000,000 in revenues (donations. tithing, etc.).
They pay the pastor $50,000 (on which he pays taxes usually) but he also gets free housing; let's say the value of that is $50,000. But he and the church pay no taxes on that. So the pastor is getting something that he might normally have to earn another $75,000 to afford (paying taxes to net $50,000). The government is giving him the equivalent of $25,000 that they would normally collect in taxes.
The church does not pay property tax as a rule. Let's say they build a $3,000,000 church that, based on local property tax rates, would normally cost them $25,000 a year. The government is giving them $25,000 that would normally be collected as tax revenue. So there you have it.

There are no justifications for these special exclusions for religious organizations given the spirit of the first amendment. Of course you nutjobs shriek about your tax dollars being used to support various secular activities but are happy as can be when your representatives violate the constitution to spend tax dollars on your church.

That is why we have SCOTUS. To interpret what the founders meant and would have likely meant given today's knowledge.

But they didn't know WHAT advancements would take place. Which is why SCOTUS was established, to interpret the constitution over time.

First off, it's not a fact, it is a CLAIM. The idea that people have to jump through hoops or beg forgiveness from God is NOT shared by many Christians. God's grace is perfect and complete, you don't have to ask for it.
And it has NOTHING WHATSOEVER to do with the conversation at hand, because a person CANNOT "repent" of being gay, for two very key reasons.
One, there is no such thing as a "former homosexual." A person CANNOT change their sexual orientation.
And two, and even more important, homosexuality IS NOT A SIN.
so you are re-defining sin now?

If you care to learn, then read what God has to say about homosexuality.

your above post is written by a fool who thinks they have a solution.

The government can't give the pastor or the church anything. The government onlu takes and redistributes.

You shoild have.just answered yes when I asked if your math class was taught by a commie.

God wrote Leviticus through Moses which is a foundation for Christianity, Judaism and Islam. Leviticus 18:22 clearly states "Thou shalt not lie with mankind as with womankind. It is abomination." Your hatred of the truth does not change the truth, even birds and squirrels know this.
Nature also indicates otherwise as seen in the aids virus that infects homosexuals and IV drug abusers.

If you don't approve of the doctrine of the Catholic Church, send your kids to Columbus Public Schools. They can receive their desired liberal education and much more!

I'm too lazy to try to find out if the source is online so I'll write a lame dodge and end it with a smug attempt at self pity with just a dash of bitchy vindictiveness.
