    Apparently James Madison did not believe that our civilization was to be held together by laws but by religion and the ten commandments.

    Or Jefferson.

    Not sure if Ihope would like him too much. After all, he crossed out whatever he didn't like in his bible.

    :lol:

    Maybe Ihope is a communist?

    After all, he doesn't want people to commit adultery, which means he's for legalizing the behavior of others.

    He's agreeing that people shouldn't work on the sabbath or be killed, so he's for the government controlling the work force.

    He's against coveting neighbor's goods, so it's clearly obvious he's against capitalism.

    :eusa_think:

    This explains everything! He goes after what he considers communists as to not draw suspicion upon himself! :eek:

    madison was wrong.

    you continue to offer up our forefathers and your religion as being the best of all standards.

    but they are NOT.

    both our forefathers and your religion have flaws

    and made mistakes

    our forefathers were wrong to legalize slavery

    even though their christian bible promotes and defends slavery

    they were wrong to deny women and non-property owners the right to vote

    they were wrong about sex and women and gays and blacks

    and your bible was just as flawed, just as wrong, about these same things.


    any of our forefathers who hold that the 10 commandments should the standard by which all Amercans live is wrong

    first and foremost, MOST of the 10 commandments are unconstitutional

    1. You shall not worship any other god but YHWH. unconstitutional

    2. You shall not make a graven image. unconstitutional

    3. You shall not take the name of YHWH in vain. unconstitutional

    4. You shall not break the Sabbath. unconstitutional

    5. You shall not dishonor your parents. unconstitutional

    6. You shall not murder.

    7. You shall not commit adultery unconstitutional

    8. You shall not steal.

    9. You shall not commit perjury.

    10. You shall not covet. unconstitutional

    and I do noty appreciate people like you telling me that YOUR beliefs deserve special rights over MY beliefs.

    your belief that you get to impose YOUR religion over the minds and freedoms of all people, FOR ALL GENERATIONS, is psychotically tyrannical

    regardless of what you or madison believed ALL AMericans have a right to NOT believe in any god or religion. you do NOT have the right to FORCE people to believe in YOUR god or to ram your irrational religious morals down everyone elses throats

    laws should NOT be beased upon YOUR primitive superstitions and irrational fears

    they should be based on LOGIC and REASON
