Are you lying again. I've explicitly said this, many times:

"all snakes are serpents but not also serpents are snakes"

You always seem to miss the "all snakes are serpents" part.

I say "all snakes are serpents", you turn around and misquote me saying "A snake isn't a serpent".

You got probs, bro.

Your behaviour reveals you do not really live in the matrix you claim to be true, you live in the Christian universe which you desperately deny, hoping that sticking a pillow over your head will enable you to escape the consequence of your choices.

A single field?
Sorry Buck, you should have been a professional wrestler. Like you, they only need to be big......... not smart.
There is only one Congress. "113th Congress" refers to that session of Congress.

The Library of Congress is a library, not a Congress.

When the Constitution refers to "Congress", it refers to the one Congress, the institution, which consists of 535 elected members.

This is as opposed to the suggestion that state governments are "Congresses".

The First Amendment, when it says "Congress shall make no law...." is referring to the legislative body elected by citizens to serve in the federal government.

Do I need to explain this further to you?

Yes Buck but since the body of congress changes as it progresses through time , it is not the same congress 100 years later.
It is the same form of government but not the same congress.

"The term Congress can also refer to a particular meeting of the legislature. A Congress covers two years; the current one, the 113th Congress, began on January 3, 2013, and would end on January 3, 2015. The Congress starts and ends on each third day of January by every two years of the odd number. Members of the Senate are referred to as senators; members of the House of Representatives are referred to as representatives, congressmen, or congresswomen."

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_Co...

The First Continental Congress was a gathering of representatives from twelve of the thirteen British Colonies in North America.[8] On July 4, 1776, the Second Continental Congress adopted the Declaration of Independence,

Government powerlessness led to the Convention of 1787 which proposed a revised constitution with a two–chamber or bicameral congress.

States do not have Congress; they have legislatures.

Congress is a specific federal institution.

Those who wrote the First Amendment knew what Congress is - they were members of it.

They wrote the Establishment Clause specifically for the concern of delegates who were afraid "Congress", meaning the federal government, would infringe on their handling of state - church issues.

The Establishment Clause was a "hands-off" agreement for the feds not to interfere.

Now, courts have used it as the opposite - the very means of interfering.

SCOTUS "interpreted" the Establishment Clause to mean the EXACT OPPOSITE of what it meant when ratified, and for the first 170 years of its existence.

Amazing, huh?

Do you think those state delegates would have voted for and ratified the First Amendment if they understood it to mean Congress and SCOTUS could control church and state issues in all their states?

NNNNOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!

Do you think the state legislatures would have ratified the First Amendment if they understood it to mean Congress and SCOTUS could control church state issues in their state?

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!

So what happened?

SCOTUS USURPED THE POWER OF THE PEOPLE TO GOVERN THEMSELVES, VIOLATED THEIR OATHS, VIOLATED THE CONSTITUTION,....

This is unassailable fact.

There is only one Congress, as referred to in the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment.

The Bill of Rights did not expire when the next session convened.

Using the term as a meeting of Congress is not the meaning of the term used in the Bill of Rights.

This is an absurd discussion, and I will not address it again.

For those that really do believe other wise don't waste your time posting here. Write the book and I'll see you on TV. Either way you'll waste your time because you can't do that either. Can't as in it can not be done. The fact atheist have turned this into a 200,000+ post tread proves they are more faithful than any other group. What makes this tread and others like it so funny is, atheist debate details of God with other, and still claim they don't believe. OK.

It seems like when I say people should but their own condoms, you take it as they shouldn't be using condoms.
What thefuck is wrong with you?
I went to the grocery earlier today and just inside the door there were two little girls handing out a list of items that they wanted for the poor. So I picked up one of everything on the list: Canned tuna and beef stew, toilet paper, paper towels, etc. As I was almost ready to check out, I thought of you and said, "Hmmmm, these are poor people. What would RR do?"

So I went back and picked up two boxes of condoms and added them to the other items.
