[Re: Muslim prayer event at the Capitol]
I suspect that our founding fathers would be just as outraged at this event as we are. Yes, I mean the ones who amended the constitution to include freedom of religion. I bet they never imagined that world travel would skyrocket the way it has in the centuries since they lived. I don't think it occurred to them that there would be such an enormous (and fast growing!) population of people in the USA, most of whom also call themselves American, who worship what the Bible clearly identifies to be a false god. I think our founding fathers had in mind that freedom of religion pertained to your choice of whether to be a Mennonite or a Quaker or even a Catholic. I think they took completely for granted that this is and will always be a Christian nation, as it was when they founded it.

I'm fairly sure that the Founding Fathers would have actually been tickled pink to hear there was a non-Christian prayer session at the Capitol. Hell, for that matter, if some atheist group decides to hold an... well, think-in or something? Likewise.
What part of the Treaty of Tripoli do you not grasp, or the first amendment?

I'll say this nice and slowly for you. America. Is. Not. A. Christian. Nation.
If you don't believe me, then take a look at the Treaty of Tripoli.

True freedom means unfettered freedom, not freedom up to a point.

And you would be wrong.
