The good ole boys in the Ky Court of Appeals has no honor. They have forsaken the US Constitution. There was a decision from Marshall County Family Court where a mother lost custody of her young son to an alcoholic father. The court stated in the reasons for removing the child that the mother stated that she prayed with the child, but did not take the child to church. Another reason the court stated for taking the child was that she lived in public housing.
So the high court no longer defends our religious freedom and upholds discrimination due to socioeconomic status.
Shame on you Kentucky Court of Appeals!

Thomas Jefferson was not a Christian, perhaps you should revisit history. I'll leave you with a quote from him.

"But it does me no injury for my neighbor to say there are twenty gods or no God. It neither picks my pocket nor breaks my leg."
-Thomas Jefferson, Notes on Virginia, 1782

No, there are countless pieces of evidence that history has tried to rewrite him as a Christian, which he was not.

Where the preamble declares, that coercion is a departure from the plan of the holy author of our religion, an amendment was proposed by inserting "Jesus Christ," so that it would read "A departure from the plan of Jesus Christ, the holy author of our religion;" the insertion was rejected by the great majority, in proof that they meant to comprehend, within the mantle of its protection, the Jew and the Gentile, the Christian and Mohammedan, the Hindoo and Infidel of every denomination.
-Thomas Jefferson, Autobiography, in reference to the Virginia Act for Religious Freedom

The whole history of these books [the Gospels] is so defective and doubtful that it seems vain to attempt minute enquiry into it: and such tricks have been played with their text, and with the texts of other books relating to them, that we have a right, from that cause, to entertain much doubt what parts of them are genuine. In the New Testament there is internal evidence that parts of it have proceeded from an extraordinary man; and that other parts are of the fabric of very inferior minds. It is as easy to separate those parts, as to pick out diamonds from dunghills.
-Thomas Jefferson, letter to John Adams, January 24, 1814

Our country was built to escape religion, you have no idea of our true history, do you? Why would I be anti-gun? I support the constitution and all aspects of it, especially the part about separation of church and states. It's the most important part, that's why it was established in the FIRST amendment. You should really not to so quick to pass judgement, you could really learn a lot.
