Our system of government is based on Christian religion and its morals and precepts. We can not operate outside of it. Witout moral code law is
useless regulation and taxation. In God we Trust.
mmm, like I said in another post where someone said USA system of government is based on the christian religion I have to say no it is not.
Am I allowed to cut and paste what I said on the other thread? I hope so, here goes with some new info added.
The Constitution contains no mention of Christianity or Jesus Christ. In fact, the Constitution refers to religion only twice in the First Amendment,
which bars laws "respecting an establishment of religion or prohibiting the free exercise thereof," and in Article VI, which prohibits "religious
tests" for public office.
Washington's administration even negotiated a treaty with the Muslim rulers of north Africa that stated explicitly that the United States was not
founded on Christianity. The pact, known as the Treaty with Tripoli, was approved unanimously by the Senate in 1797, under the administration of John
Adams. Article 11 of the treaty states, "[T]he government of the United States is not, in any sense, founded on the Christian religion…."
The Constitution was NOT founded on christian principles. Their are somewhere around 55% of the population that believe erroneously that the
Constitution establishes a Christian nation.
Go on and do some research if you really wanna deny ignorance.
The phrases "In God we Trust" etc was added in the 1950's, and in the 1960's it was added to paper money, also during the 1950's, the phrase "so
help me God" was added to the oaths of office for justices and judges. Before the change on money
E Pluribus Unum standing for "Out of Many, One", was used on our currency.
