It becomes not the original intent implemented in the beginning, but instead a watered down version, that well, is packed full of unconstitutional laws. Which then brings about questions like those of O'Donnell. "That's in there?"

And what was the original intent?

To have a national religion? Or not to have one?

To have people free to practice whichever religion they choose? Or not?


Which laws, exactly, do you consider Unconstitutional?

To not have a national like, Church of England, however, not to prohibit the free exercise....thereof.

Any law that prohibits free 'public' exercise is unconstitutional.

School Graduates that elect to have a public prayer at the time of their graduation ceremony, they are brought up on charges, their free exercise thereof has been, prohibited.

Got to hand it though to children. Anything you tell 'em not to do, that is the thing they are going to do. I love rebellion!

School Graduates are brought up on charges? For what?

Please be specific about which laws you consider to be Unconstitutional.

The separating government regulation from religion is covered in the "or prohibit the free exercise thereof" part, but that's only half of it. Government also can't respect any establishment of religion.

So it's like saying government can't respect or disrespect religion, meaning it just better stay away from it altogether (i.e. separation of church and state).

(note: "State" is different than "government officials" so it doesn't keep government officials separate from religion, just that their governmental actions must be secular.)
How do you reconcile religious services being held in the Capitol?

Have you ever been inside the Capitol?

Explain the 4 pictures that are in there.

Watch this and learn:

No one has bothered to respond to those posts I referenced earlier, and yet we still have people hanging around who apparently do not support the separation of church and state.

Is it asking too much to have people respond to those posts? Why are you ignoring them?

Some people are being way too tough on Christine ODonnell. She never said "church and state." She said "cheese and steak." She was in Philly getting a cheese steak hoagy when she said "no separating the cheese and steak."

I don't think it can get much simpler than what I just said.

I do believe you and I have had this conversation before, as well. Maybe not, but I think we have. Won't take me long to search my posts and find out.

I know one thing. My headline news interests are much more different than yours.
