  1. Unless I missed something, I didn't see anything that supported Christianity. Long article so I may have missed it.
  2. They literally voted not to put Jesus Christ in the constitution.
  3. Huh? That's literally where the founding fathers got their ideas from? The declaration of independence and constitution is the culmination of their teachings? They influenced the start of the U.S. please explain....
  4. Hard for me to understand why polygamy was banned when it was in bible. Oh well
  5. The Quran was a bestseller in the 18th Century. https://www.history.com/news/thomas-jefferson-quran-rashida-tlaib-keith-ellison
  6. That was just the one I mentioned. Either way, they were tolerant. Just showing facts.
  7. i need to cite American history? Page 41 in Jefferson's autobiography called the "Autobiography of Thomas Jefferson". Written in 1821. "The bill for establishing religious freedom, the principles of which had, to a certain degree, been enacted before, I had drawn in all the latitude of reason & right. it still met with opposition; but, with some mutilations in the preamble, it was finally past; and a singular proposition proved that it’s protection of opinion was meant to be universal. where the preamble declares that coercion is a departure from the plan of the holy author of our religion, an amendment was proposed, by inserting the words ‘Jesus Christ’ so that it should read ‘a departure from the plan of Jesus Christ, the holy author of our religion’ the insertion was rejected by a great majority, in proof that they meant to comprehend, within the mantle of it’s protection, the Jew and the Gentile, the Christian and Mahometan, the Hindoo and infidel of every denomination." Yall have to remember this was post Reformation and Renaissance. The founders got their ideas from enlightenment thinkers who were not huge fans of Christianity due to the divine right of kings and their use of Jesus Christ to oppress the people. (that was king George's justification for what he was doing). They believed in God, but doubt most were Christians due to the landscape at the time.
  8. There were some founding Fathers who were very tolerant of Islam
  9. An amendment is a change in the constitution. "Freedom of religion" is freedom of religion. Why didn't they say freedom of practicing Christianity." Some founding fathers were in favor of being tolerant of all religions. Mainly Jefferson
  10. Politics is rich people using the poor for personal gain.
  11. We're in negotiations. With Juneteenth being in June, only seems right we get it and they can have February. Seems like Valentines day is a good fit for them.
  12. I don't trust ANY politician and I say, so what. Since when is a politician lying news? Next thing you know, there will be a segment on a dog barking.
  13. From what I read and watched outside the article. Didn't seem geared at the Hispanics much at all, especially with the other guests there. Also, this had nothing at all to do with voting for the Democrats and everything to do with voting regardless of affiliation.
