“We are a democracy, the republic died a long time ago.”
I disagree with that.
As to respecting your right of no religion, most of our laws are Biblical. Thou shalt not steal, thou shalt not bear false witness, thou shalt not murder. I was reflecting the other day that our bankruptcy laws, where the record is wiped clean after seven years, are a reflection of Biblical law, which requires all debts to be wiped out every seven years. Inheritance law, all sorts of laws are Scripture based.
Having laws based on Biblical morality does not disrespect your right to be an atheist. As a matter of fact, were we to strike all laws that reflected Biblical morality, we’d pretty much have no laws left at all.
You are mistaken once again I am not an atheist just someone who refuses to be associated with religion as far as your bible goes it hold no sway over me nor will I give it any space in my life, I am a free man unencumbered by the beliefs or constraints of others.
I love the founding fathers, but I wish the spirtual ancestors of the Second and Third Great Awakenings would realize that they did NOT found the country. The founding fathers were not foot washers or hand clappers.
