    And how in the hell do you think they purposefully separated church from state, while simultaneously allowing all of the things you say they were outlawing, like monuments in public buildings, even a church in the capitol building, opening congress with a prayer and having chaplains in government and the military?
    As I said, James Madison, the main author of the Constitution warned against such practices but they were the tradition of the times which like slavery continued for some time regardless.

      That wasn't in the Constitution James...

        The problem is that you're too ignorant to know the difference between the US Constitution and the Declaration of Independence - WHICH, by the way, invokes God numerous times.

          You seem absolutely determined to wrongly interpret the "wall of separation" -- it is clear to anybody with a function brain that Jefferson was responding to the Danbury Baptist Association's concern that there would be a "national" or "state religion". Jefferson was assuring him there would be religious liberty.
          So, you should understand then by that letter that Jefferson was clearly saying that there would be no government sactioned religion.

            No Jim, they simply did not want a state religion where one was compelled to join. Like what England had...

              Yes, my error, but they go together, the one informing the other.

                I've maintained that all along. Jimmy, are you on drugs? You seem to be forgetting what your argument is.

                    What a pantload. So, JEFFERSON is recognized as a primary contributor to the DoI, which invokes God or Creator numerous times.

                    Ya got the wrong author and the wrong document, and the wrong argument.

                    STRIKE THREE!!!!

                            Then your fellows shouldn't write things like this: "Trump's promise to replace liberal judges with conservative ones was a big issue to me.".

                            Originalism makes sense to me, because language and meaning change over time. But there doesn't seem to be any reason why a liberal can't also be an originalist.

                              oh please show me where it says "All men are created equal" in the Constitution, Jimmy. I gotta see this. Not that it has anything to do with slavery.

                                Now that I'm done laughing at this stupidity....

                                In the Declaration of Independence...
                                1. “When in the Course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them...
                                2. “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights...
                                3. “We, therefore, the Representatives of the United States of America, in General Congress, Assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world...
                                4. “And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes, and our sacred Honor.”


                                FOUR TIMES, Jimmy, we have references to God in the Declaration of Independence. So, as to your statement " the one informing the other".... do you wish to revise and extend your remarks?
