Response to A little too shrill and self-righteous...


It's a point we've made before, but it bears repeating, like the Constitutional amendment about the rights of well-regulated bears being provided repeating rifles, which hadn't even been invented yet, which is just a testament to the foresight and perspicacity of the Founding Fathers. The latter were mostly "Deists," not Christians. They were "men of the Enlightenment," who were all about rejecting the false authority given to kings by God, and embracing the idea of the power being granted to the government by the governed. Novel idea, that. Lots of challenges to it, that's for sure.

"Jesus Christ, Christianity, Bible, and God" are words you never read in the Constitution--not once. If people want to believe in those things, great, go for it. Believe in Scientology, and Xenu, too, if it helps you sleep at night. Just don't try to force your religious beliefs onto anyone else, and don't try to force them into the government, which has enough problems, without taking on that albatross!

Speaking of shrill and self-righteous, did I already post Debbie's report on the Hezbollah rally in Dearborn? It's got a lot of nice detail, the kind of details not reported in the CAIR-friendly MSM.
