Liberal Lies and The Constitution : "The Seperation Of Church and State"

This is the first in a series of articles dealing with the twisting of the Constitution by the left to promote their agenda and to attempt to change the intent of the Founding Fathers and thus the very principles in which our nation was born. The first is the myth that the Constitution establishes, "the seperation of church and state." This is a falsehood that has existed for 204 years and has continually been admonished so that most of the people believe it to be fact and actually in the Constitution including unfortunatly many of our elected officials. Let's look first to the Constitution itself and find what is actually written. The first seven articles of the Constitution deal with the makeup of the Government and how it shall operate, then comes the Bill of Rights, the first ten amendments which establish the rights of the people of The United States. Amendment 1 establishes freedoms of speech, press, peacful assemply and the right to petition the government. Yet with all of these freedoms the Founding Fathers chose the establishement of the freedom of religion as the first of our essential freedoms. The amendment begins, "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof;" Notice at no time in this, "establishment clause," is there any mention of the seperation of church and state. To understand the intent of this clause by the Fathers, we must first look to the first colonist and the European idea of religion. The Pilgrims were Puritans who came to America to escape religious pursecution in Europe. Europe then and even today establishes a state church that you must belong to in order to marry, bury and in some case to even own property. For instance in Germany you may attend the church of your choice but for any legal purposes such as marriage, you must belong to the Lutheran Church. Essentially this was the case with the Pilgrims except that they could not worship as they wished so they left Europe for America. They then did establish Puritanism as the one religion in America, which brought about the Salem witch trials and such. The Founding Fathers in order to end religious persecution and establish freedom to worship one's God as one would wish stated that Congress shall pass no law establishing religion thus preventing a state sponsored church and religion leaving it up to the individual as how to worship his God. The idea of,"seperation of church and state," began in 1802 from a letter written by President Thomas Jefferson to the Danbury, Conneticut Baptist Association in answer to their question as to why he did not proclaim a day of Thanksgiving as Washington and Adams before him did.(read the letter at Jefferson letter states in response that the government and its officials shall make, "no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise therof,thus building a wall of seperation of church and state." Yet even with this thought in the letter Jefferson closes by asking for, "your kind prayers for the protection and blessing of the Common Father and Creator of man!" For 204 years this thought by Jefferson has been the basis for attempting to eliminate all references of God, prayer, worship and religion from the very core of our nation and all state and government writings and institutions. Yet many of the founders including Jefferson included God and prayer in everyday aspects of governing and government. Even today, Congress opens each session with prayer. God bless America is a standard close for most political speeches and the song by the same name is sung a many state celebrations. Yet the left would have us believe that the Constitution establishes the elimination of any referance to God, any form of prayer or worship to Him at any and all state and government levels and buildings, signs, lawns, meetings, schools, sporting activities etc. In the founding document of freedom,The Declaration of Independance the Fathers stated, "We hold these truths...that all men are CREATED equal and are endowed by their CREATOR!" The seventh article of the Constitution states that the ratification was completed on the, "17th day of September in the YEAR OF OUR LORD" 1787! None of this even remotely gives the idea that the Fathers intended that God be excluded from our government but instead embraced by it! Most President's have stated that they could not lead without His Divine guidance. Our nation was founded on Godly principles and ideas. It was never intended that those principles be removed from the country but rather that they become a foundation to be built upon. We are a nation that trusts in God as is stated on our currancy and a nation under God as stated in our pledge. This is the legacy of the Fouding Fathers and this is the truth that the left would have us forget! This is the truth as found in our Constitution!

"A Conservative Christmas"......A Little Political Christmas Fun !

Twas the night before Christmas when all through the House Dennis Hastert was searching for a liberal louse.
While up in the Senate Tom Daschel scratched his head, "How in the world am I politically dead?!?!?"
The Dems were all huddled in their left wing traits, with visions of Hillary for Prez in 2000 and 8.
Barney Franks in his 'kerchief with a Page on his lap, keeps telling John Kerry, "Heinz Ketchup tastes like crap!"
When out on the Capitol lawn came a clatter, every window burst open, "Hey what's the matter?"
"Bang, Pow, Boom, Screach, Crunch, Clang and Crash; the ghost of Mary Jo and Teddy K in his Olds; as always he's smashed!
The moon shining bright on the Capitol Dome, brought forth a great smile since this is a Republican home!
When what to my conservative eyes did appear, but President Bush and his cabinet bringing up the rear.
With the pride of an eagle he lead and each came, then he laughed and he waved and he called them by name.
"Come Condi, Come Donald, Come Cheney and Powell, the entire majority let out a great howl!
The President stepped foward with a look of great trust, saying, "We've come here to lobby you Dems if we must.
There's much work to be done in the upcoming year, as we pass my agenda, there's nothing to fear!"
A hush fell on all as the President spoke, then Nancy Pelosi stepped up with a quiver, her voice choked.
"Mr. President," she said as a tear lined her cheek, "the election was stolen we've claimed week after week.
The people don't know how to vote or to choose, it's up to us liberals to tell them even when we lose!"
Bill Frist then burst forth with a smile on his face, waving papers that brought cheers from all over the place!
"I have it here!" he then yelled with a sigh of relief, the Dems looked at each other with anger and disbelief.
"This map shows red states throughout this great land, which prooves Mr. Bush the people will lend a hand.
The mandate is set, the people have spoken, the Dems can't accept just how badly their broken!"
Frist's words brought a smile and a twinkle in his eye, then the President turned and began waving, "goodbye."
As he walked down the stairs off into the night, he was heard saying, "Merry Christmas to all, I won this one outright!"

Merry Christmas from the Liberal Lie, The Conservative truth!
