[W]e have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion. . . . Our constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.
(Source: John Adams, The Works of John Adams, Second President of the United States, Charles Francis Adams, editor (Boston: Little, Brown, and Co. 1854), Vol. IX, p. 229, October 11, 1798.)

You'd help your case more if you didn't post garbage from Wallbuilders. They are error prone pseudo-historians and normally end up making our case look bad. There's substantially better, higher quality stuff out there that can withstand academic scrutiny unlike the tripe put out by David Barton and co. See http://www.libertyfund.org

In the American Constitution ALL rights are invented and secured by "GOD".. not the government.. Thats why we have any rights at all.. inalienable or otherwise.. Attack god in the Constitution and you attack THOSE rights. Its that simple.

No democracy on this planet has any "rights". All of URP and Canada have ZERO rights.. merely privledges offered by their governments. Big difference between rights and privledges..

Democracy also is the source of socialism. Democracy is the well socialism is drawn from.. Democracy sucks and so does its symptoms like socialism.. Socialism IS slavery by government and democracy is the root of it. Democrats are FOR democracy, ALL OF THEM.. Being for democracy in the U.S. is being against this Republic.. A democrat is seditious by the very meaning of the word and by the way in action too..

Democrat candidates for President for many years have ALL been abject traitors.. Traitor How.?. being for democracy that is how..

ALL;
I spit on the words democrat and democracy and so should you.. unless you're a deep down democrat on the wrong forum.. or even a shallow democrat.. same thing..

"The Constitution, in short, can be fairly characterized as "godless" or secular only insofar as it deferred to the states on all matters regarding religion and devotion to God."

Hmmmm, sort of like John Kerry's plan to 'deferr' to the states on all matters of homosexual marriage.

We should just stick to the words of the Constitution, i.e., no religious establishment and no prevention of the free exercise of religion. No need to go beyond those concepts.
