    Even in Kentucky, there are some things you just don't discuss: Like "Rand Paul" at a Kentucky Republican "Unity" rally!

    Kentucky Republicans Show 'Unity' Behind Rand Paul - Yahoo! News

    There are some things that actually do not exist, and other things that you actually wish: Did not exist!

    Finally, in the Bill of Rights, the original Deists finally conceded that there could be no government support of religion, and no government denial of religion.

    Again: There are some things that actually do not exist, and other things that you actually wish: Did not exist. Even the Republicans are slowly coming around to this understanding of America, in our world.

    "Crow, James Crow: Shaken, Not Stirred!"
    (It has long been a tenet of wise campaigning, in The Colonies, to keep the actual candidates out of sight, and out of mind!(?) Then we are reminded that these people actually have The Bomb!)

    The whole point of the first amendment was to protect the free expression of religion and not to destroy as so many liberals keep attempting to do. Everytime someone professes some religious belief such as being christian they say "separation of church and state" and blah blah balh. The first sentence of that amendment says 'congress shall pass no law...' which means it is a limitation on the congress itself and not on individuals, politicians, or anyone else so the first amendment can't be used to silence by expression of my own religion or anyone elses.

    Liberals haven't gotten that yet and seem to think they can just closet people who profess their belief in God.

    Despite the secular nature of our national government, there is one unambiguous reference to Christ in the Constitution. Article VII dates the Constitution in "the Year of our Lord one thousand seven hundred and Eighty seven."

    Has anyone ever told you you have a way with words?

    There are four references to ‘Devine’ in Declaration of Independence… 1)in first paragraph ‘Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God,’ 2) next paragraph ‘endowed by their Creator,” 3) Supreme Judge of the world, and 4) ‘divine’ Providence, last paragraph.
    This is important because our historic documents memorialize a government based on individuals born with inalienable rights, by, in various references, by the Devine, or Nature’s God, or their Creator, or the Supreme Judge, or divine Providence.


    Who was the author of the Declaration of Independence?


    BTW, have you noted the inscription on Thomas Jefferson's tombstone?
    "Here was buried Thomas Jefferson, author of the Declaration of American Independence, of the Statute of Virginia for Religious Freedom, and father of the University of Virginia."
    Jefferson designed the tombstone, and he wrote the inscription. One can infer that these were his proudest achievements.
