"But, the answer to your question is: Any version anyone wants to preach! It's their right!"

OK....with you so far...



" The 1st amendment says, "Congress shall make no law..." So, you are saying that a public person = congress, and anytghing they say equals "law"?"


Hmmm...{scans previous posts} Nope - didn't say that...


" How is it that Roy Moore = Congress? How is it that his decalog = Law?"

By his position on the Supreme Court. Although it didn't "equal law", the symbolism that his actions represented -- that a Christian in a position of power could display whatever Christian symbols he liked, yet no other symbols of any other religion were being posted -- was a reason his actions were seen as Constitutionally blasphemous. Like it or not, this is a nation for all relgions, not just Christianity. I despise all things Islam -- and wish it were outlawed due to its ties to terrorism...but the Constitution doesn't allow that to happen.


" What part of "or prohibit the free exercise thereof" don't you understand?"


Well then, please don't get upset when the Buddhists ask for gov't money to display a statue of Buddha's fat ass in your state Supreme Court or town square. Constitutionally, if you allow Christians this right, you must allow other faiths this right as well.


(Personally, I see nothing wrong with Nativity scenes and the like...but I'm part of the majority faith. Please, no Christmas trees though - too pagan in origin. Most Christians need to be aware of that. Bottom line though - I don't feel that it's necessary for me to impose my faith on others. A dangerous, Arabian precedent will be set when Christians are allowed to do what they want while allowing no other faiths this same privelege. Do you not understand this?)

Where in the Constitution does it say that religious symbols can't be posted? Hint: Nowhere. So, I will thank those blackguards in black robes to follow the black and white print in the Constitution and the original intent of the founders. This is a nation of LAWS (LEX REX) not arbitrary rulers. The day is coming when these morons will be DEFIED by the masses and that will mark the end of judicial tyranny in this land.
