Just because the Treaty of Tripoli states that our government is not founded on the basis of the Christian religion does not mean that they can change the past.

Er ... the Treaty of Tripoli was written in 1796, and approved by Sam Adams, one of the founding fathers of the United States. I'm not sure what about the "past" needs to be changed.

I'm not sure what 'past' you're talking about. If you're referring to the Anglican Church in England, THAT'S PRECISELY WHAT OUR FOUNDING FATHERS FLED ENGLAND TO ESCAPE, YOU PATHETIC EXCUSE FOR A SAPIENT BEING.

What the fuck is this shit?
Yeah, it isn't like it was written by many of the same people that founded the country...
Except for the fact that nothing says it before either. The Treaty was created to clear up the Christian spin and to state it clearer

a mind far far away
Just because the the 21st amendment says you have to be at least 21 to drink alcohol doesn't mean our founding fathers meant it that way. So I say you can get drunk as young as you want to, because that's the way our founding fathers wanted it, and they would agree with me, because I'm a fundy christian, and they were fundy christians, and we should all be fundy christians, and sing fundy christian songs, and........Idiot.
