They make it sound like you’d have competing classes for Christians and evolutionites across the hall from each other in schools but that isn’t realistic. To have a meaningful dialectic you’d need an apples/apples comparison that is, you’d need a religion which operated on an intellectual level similar to that of evolution to compare to evolution and there isn’t really any sort of a religion which operates on that sort of an intellectual level. Closest would be Rastafari but that’s almost an insult to the Rastas.

Oh my, the disciples of the church of Darwin are going to screech like a tree full of monkeys. Congrats to the people of IN for electing brave wise leaders.

You made the statement:


However when the First Amendment is actually examined, instead of merely referred to, unbiased observers find there is no mention of any level of government below the federal. “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.”

I assume the idea that the First Amendment is a requirement upon Congress only is an opinion of yours, and those who think like you. I doubt that any federal court would express or endourse your opinion. So, I have a few questions.

Who are these “unbiased observers”?

Do you also contend that the state of Indianna can enact laws that abridge freedom of speach, allow the arrest, prosecution and imprisonment of people involved in peaceful assembly, and eliminate redress of grievances to the state government?

What state religion would you like Indianna to establish? What should the punishment be for violations of the tenents of the state religion?

Do you believe that all the Amendments to the Constitution apply only to the federal government?
