The notion was that the federal government could not pick one CHRISTIAN denomination over the others.
Entangling? Excuse me, but I stick with the founders' intent and not the twisted, perverted teaching of the last few decades.
To be honest with you, I am done spoon feeding you. You honestly do not bring anything to the table as far as knowledge. I spent years doing my own study. When I say study, I don't mean reading other people's interpretation. I mean I had to go to the point of understanding the language of the time just so I could properly understand the writings of the Federalist Papers and the Anti-Federalist Papers. Often times, a word that looks familiar to you had the opposite meaning in the days of the founding fathers. Talk about a headache.
To make matters worse, my personality causes me to speak and write in the style I surround myself. Fortunately, that same quirk brings me back into contemporary writing and speaking pretty quickly.
Point I am trying to make is you are an elementary school child trying to argue with a college math professor is wrong when he says 2 plus 2 equals four. You might feel it equals five, and someone else might tell you it does, but you are still arguing from a position that is not on par with the professor.
As far as your earlier comment that the law is on your side, you are wrong, once again. Not only are all statutes not laws, there are many judges, up to even the supreme court level, that uphold unconstitutional statutes because they are disconnected from the very foundation of this nation. That doesn't mean you or they are correct; that means our nation has been conquered.

You either love Him or hate Him, or else you twist His words to your own liking and pretend to love Him, I guess....Remember He was crucified because people don't like the truth and Christ was all about the truth.On a side note, I don't understand why people get so upset over Jesus.Liberals are supposed to be the open minded ones, but ironically they're only open minded about their own opinions. With the gay agenda, there are many who aren't satisfied with live and let live, no. They want our approval and they won't be happy until they get it. That's why you find the worst of them going after bakers who won't make their wedding cakes and photographers who don't want to do gay marriages. This "tolerance" stuff is taught in our schools. We pay for it with our tax money. Our churches are gonna be next, I'm afraid.It seems to me what he taught in the New Testament was common sense. But on the other hand things like common sense, common courtesy and common decency aren't so common anymore. These same people who believe in free speech are the first one's that try to shut you up by any means necessary when you disagree with them.
If you're not listening to "The Denton and Sasquatch Show", you're not on the team.
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
this exercise might include refusing to vote for a person, not issuing marriage licenses, not making a wedding cake, not serving in the military...
IF religion was to be removed then only atheists could run for office, run florist shops, bake cakes for sale, own rental property... it is impossible for a person that REALLY believes in God to not have that as center in ALL their thinking

“We hold these Truths to be self-evident, that all Men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness”
please read the Constitution dating In the YEAR OF OUR LORD
The Paris Peace Treaty was the document which formally ended the Revolution and granted the United States independence from Great Britain. In a real sense, the United States formally became a nation on September 3, 1783.
When the United States became a nation, it was done in the “name of the most holy and undivided Trinity.” The preamble to this Treat states it is based upon the “Holy and undivided Trinity.” The concept of the holy Trinity is unique to Christianity. This statement means the United States was founded on the Christian faith. The complete Preamble follows:
“In the name of the most holy and undivided Trinity”
The Treaty then ends just like the Constitution with a statement it is being signed in the “Year of our Lord.” The witnesses representing the United States were John Adams, Benjamin Franklin, John Jay and D. Hartley. The section in part follows:
“In witness whereof we the undersigned, their ministers plenipotentiary, have in their name and in virtue of our full powers, signed with our hands the present definitive treaty and caused the seals of our arms to be affixed thereto.Done at Paris, this third day of September in the year of our Lord, one thousand seven hundred and eighty-three”

It amazes me that so many people in the USA want to fight so hard against Christianity and Christians and yet many of them welcome islamists who want to kill them.
People are stupid and the world done gone crazy...
