Quote# 6267

Our forefathers said to put Christians in office since our government itself was meant to rule itself with no religious bias. It is up to the public to put Christian judges and officials in their place to secure our future as Christian America....and to insure America's future period. This has nothing to do with the constitution or civil rights.

\"This has nothing to do with the constitution or civil rights.\"

Well, you're right about one thing....

Adding 'Our forefathers said..' to the beginning of your sentence does not mean that 1) it will always matter and 2) that we are required to believe you.

The founding fathers believed slavery was okay. Should we revert to that as well?

And didn't they flee to and found THIS land in order to ESCAPE from Christianity's thorough death-grip it had on Europe?

They never said any such thing, and your opening line contradicts itself anyway. How does "no religious bias" square with only putting "Christians in office?"

Actually, it has everything to do with The Constitution and civil rights. The Constitution specifically states that there will be no religious test to hold public office. Granted, some of the attendees at the constitutional convention refused to sign it, in part, because of this. However, enough of them did for it to be submitted to the states for ratification.

So lets look at your assertions again. The first sentence is a lie. Your second sentence runs counter to the equanimity that America is supposed to stand for. And your third sentence, well, that's just stupid.
