Wait a minute. I thought the Constitution was a nearly sacred document, second only to the Bible, that Obama and Liberal Scum were trampling to death and burning like cigarette papers... OR is it nearly sacred and untouchable as long as it says what you want it to say, but not so much when you don't like what it says...?? SO many contradictions.
This actually doesn't surprise me, as in order to be a Fundamentalist and believe 100% in the Bible as Revealed Word of God, you have to be very okay with contradictions and 'interpretations' that best suit your denomination.
Okay, I don't want to be unfair here, and I don't want to stir up any religious wrath, but when I was invited to look at Fundamentalism by a friend in High School, I didn't get very far because my questions were too disturbing. Apparently, I had the "devil" on my shoulder... (Yes. I was told that. And yes, it freaked me out when I realized they were serious.) That is when I realized I couldn't stop thinking, and therefore could not join my friend's church. Even so, I fully believe in the right of others to have their Fundamentalist beliefs, as is a protection under the Constitution, just so long as they are not trying to eliminate my right to believe religiously or otherwise what I choose to believe.
Unless we destroy the Constitution, this won't happen. According to the Founding Fathers, it SHOULDN'T happen. Even a Conservative SCOTUS would have to see this as anti-Constitutional. Right????

The US has god in a lot of places thanks to the 50's. God being plastered all over the place is a recent thing.
Sure I'll take Kansas. I grew up there and most of my family is there. Not to mention my alma and their football team. We'd keep the best college football, too, with those states.

I live near what is called the historic triangle. The area of Virginia which contained Jamestown, Yorktown, and Williamburg. History is part of our tourism and I'm a history buff. I've been to the original Jamestown island ruins. Fascinating.

Just another way to divide us even further. And I'm calling them on it.
Correct me if I'm wrong but since 1954 the US are a Christian nation as displayed by their pledge of allegiance:
I pledge allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America, and to the Republic for which it stands, one Nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.
I can only wonder about the similarity to this one:
"Children practicing the Hitler salute". I mean, really, why did they come up with this thing, which is so deceivingly similar to the Hitler salute?
There are only 3 main monotheistic religions and only Christians call their god "God".
Uhm... what do you think could "Allah" be translated to? Right, it means "the one and only God".
Hence any American taking this pledge (especially officials) are expressing allegiance to a Christian nation.
Yeah, or they are just parrots, repeating a meaningless parole as so many others did before them. Peer pressure?
