"Fighting the world wide web of wicked wrong doers."

Welcome. The aim of this site is simple - to rail against the slow, but steady chipping away of traditonal American values by a host of groups & individuals bent on destroying them.

The Separation of Church & Hate

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
— The First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution

Simple. Understandable. So you would think. Read it again. Where's Waldo? Where does it say "separation of church & state"? Where does it say Christmas should be banned from schools? Where does it say the Nativity can not be put on a public town square? Where does it say a copy of the Ten Commandments can not be hung from a government office wall?

It simply says, "Congress shall make no law respecting establishment of religion."
It also says, "Congress shall make no law...prohibiting the free exercise thereof."

Because a handful of men, Supreme Court Justices, decided to corrupt the First Amendment, we are now in this crazy la-la-land of statist eradication of religion, particularly the Christian religion. On the one hand we have the crazies using the establishment ruling of the Court to snuff out every last vestige of the Christian religion from government halls. On the other hand, these crazies use these same court rulings to prohibit the free exercise of religion.

A Christmas card with a religious message cannot be allowed in schools, but the Ten Commandments sits clearly visible in the Supreme Court. Candy canes which say, "Jesus Saves" cannot be distributed in schools, but the Supreme Court opens each session with the clerk saying, "God save the Supreme Court." A high school valedictorian cannot thank God for graduating, but the U. S. Congress has chaplains & their staff on the tax-payer payrolls. And let's not forget "In God We Trust" on our money.

It's time to revisit & redefine the rulings of the Supreme Court & put some common sense back into the meaning of the First Amendment. You cannot be "a little pregnant." You are or you are not. You cannot have "a little religion" allowed in government halls. You do or you don't. Stop the hypocrisy. Fire the Congressional chaplains, retool our money, & stop God from saving the Supreme Court. Or get some common sense & acknowledge that people can freely exercise their right to their religion, even on government property. Otherwise the bigotry & hate of the anti-Christian crowd will continue.

It is a paranoid reach to think that a candy cane with "Jesus Saves" on it is akin to Congress making a law to establish a state endorsed religion.

Yes. Government should get out of the religion business altogether. Chaplains in Congress. Was there ever a Rabbi or Catholic Priest or Muslim cleric as a Chaplain? No!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Only Protestants. No diversity or religious toleration at all!!!!!!!!!!.

You know I had a good laugh right there at the end of your writing where you said "stop God from saving the Supreme Court."

I completely agree with you.

Though i'm not an American I do come from what is still considered the most 'liberal' countries of all in Europe - Holland. And here seperation between church & state is quite vague but don't say the national anthem every school morning in which God is praised. Nor do we an opening of any court in which we're basically saying "God save us!"

However, on all Dutch euro coins it does say "God be with us". In Dutch of course. However nobody makes a big deal about it.

I am all for separation of church & state. If you want freedom of speech and religion it's impossible to allow religion into the lawbook. It was christianity's own god which said "thou shalt not honour any other god than me" - arrogant bastard, ain't he?

Anyway. I'm glad to see there's also Americans thinking the same.

Hey Francis, thanks for your comment on NNDP. :)

Us Dutch were more important to the US' history than many people know. Sure, the British came and took everything from us - but hey! New York was once called New Amsterdam. And where Battery Park now is used to be a fortress. There even were old Amsterdam-like buildings on that tip of Manhattan. Really too bad it all got torn down.

"Amsterdam on the Hudson" - just imagine it. You should really see what Amsterdam is about, nowadays it tries to look more like New York than vice versa. Come see it now before it's surrounded by a wall of skyscrapers.

"And it has become pretty general. Last Christmas most people had a hard time finding Christmas cards that indicated in any way that Christmas commemorated Someone's Birth. Easter they will have the same difficulty in finding Easter cards that contain any suggestion that Easter commemorates a certain event. There will be rabbits and eggs and spring flowers, but a hint of the Resurrection will be hard to find. Now, all this begins with the designers of the cards."
