Update # 3
DID YOU KNOW? As you walk up the steps to the building which houses the U.S. Supreme Court you can see near the top of the building a row of the world's law givers and each one is facing one in the middle who is facing forward with a full frontal view ... it is Moses and he is holding the Ten Commandments!


DID YOU KNOW?
As you enter the Supreme Court courtroom, the two huge oak doors have the Ten Commandments engraved on each lower portion of each door.

DID YOU KNOW? As you sit inside the courtroom, you can see the wall, right above where the Supreme Court judges sit, a display of the Ten Commandments!


DID YOU KNOW?
There are Bible verses etched in stone all over the Federal Buildings and Monuments in Washington, D.C.


DID YOU KNOW?
James Madison, the fourth president, known as "The Father of Our Constitution" made the following statement:
"We have staked the whole of all our political institutions upon the capacity of mankind for self-government, upon the capacity of each and all of us to govern ourselves, to control ourselves, to sustain ourselves according to the Ten Commandments of God."

DID YOU KNOW?
Patrick Henry, that patriot and Founding Father of our country said:
"It cannot be emphasized too strongly or too often that this great nation was founded not by religionists but by Christians, not on religions but on the Gospel of Jesus Christ".

DID YOU KNOW?
Every session of Congress begins with a prayer by a paid preacher, whose salary has been paid by the taxpayer since 1777.


DID YOU KNOW?
Fifty-two of the 55 founders of the Constitution were members of the established orthodox churches in the colonies.


DID YOU KNOW?
Thomas Jefferson worried that the Courts would overstep their authority and instead of interpreting the law would begin making law . an oligarchy,
the rule of few over many.

DID YOU KNOW?
The very first Supreme Court Justice, John Jay, said:
"Americans should select and prefer Christians as their rulers."

How, then, have we gotten to the point that everything we have done for 220 years in this country is now suddenly wrong and unconstitutional?

Lets put it around the world and let the world see and remember what this great country was built on.

a) no source.

b) you never answered my question of how you were being prosecuted.

c) the stuff you posted only shows that christians are not prosecuted.

d) if as you say, america is founded on christian values ( which is contradicted by the quotes of other founding fathers,btw ), why is it only recently that so much of the country feels that they are under attack by christians ?

e) the world has had 2000+ years of experiencing christianity for itself. about 1800 years more than america. they probably get it a lot better than american christians by now, don't ya yhink ?

probably. but she hasn't answered any of the questions, or responded when she has been provided evidence or proofs that she has demanded.

considering i asked people to quit bagging on her about her spelling on another thread, i feel i deserve the courtesy of an answer.

Constitutional Girl:

You need to enter a Bass fishing tournament.

Your ability to bait A2K posters is astounding.

I don't know which is funnier, the thought that you are playing a clever game and sucking so many of them in, or that you are actually serious about some of the inane comments you make, and all of these high minded intellectuals find it irresistible to respond to you.

If you are serious about the things you write than I urge you to read and contemplate more, but also not to feel the least bit intimidated by all of the attacks you attract (somehow I don't think you need this advice). That the Grand and Lesser Poohbahs of A2K find it so essential that they repeatedly inform you of your immaturity, stupidity, racism, narrow-mindedness, etc is testimony to the effectiveness of your contributions. I'm afraid it says more about quality of your detractors than your posts, but enjoy the attention, never-the-less.

If I didn't know better you are being more insulting to CG than anyone else by saying her post are so full of misinformation or filled with racial and narrow minded comments (intentionally or unintentionally) that the other A2Ker's ought to know better than to take her up on it.

Since I have never been to the Supreme Court building and those details were skipped somehow when I went to high school all those many years ago, I would have just assumed that CG was correct in her statements. I appreciated the following link that explained those symbols.

Mistaking a poster as a master baiter on this forum is fallacious baiting in itself.

here's a couple of things i found regarding the subject...

Quote:
Treaty of peace and friendship between the United States of America and the Bey and Subjects of Tripoli, of Barbary.

from Article 11:

"As the Government of the United States of America is not, in any sense, founded on the Christian religion; as it has in itself no character of enmity against the laws, religion, or tranquillity, of Musselmen; and as the said States never have entered into any war or act of hostility against any Mehomitan nation, it is declared by the parties that no pretext arising from religious opinions shall ever produce an interruption of the harmony existing between the two countries."
