medest: I also suggest you read further about the Danbury Baptists Link.

They were a religious minority concerned that their state constitution didn`t protect them, and that it left the state open to establish a `state religion` that would necessarily exclude them.

in other words it was about `freedom of religion`, not `freedom from religion`. Also, Jefferson was already president when the Danbury baptists wrote their letter, So you have the dates of your history mixed up.

@CrakrJak:
You`re dismissing direct quotes as "leftist interpretations"? Well, gee, I can see you`ve figured out a clever way to never lose an argument: you simply dismiss reality.

* * *

On teaching Creationism in public schools:

Sarah Palin: "Teach both. You know, don`t be afraid of education. Healthy debate is so important, and it`s so valuable in our schools. I am a proponent of teaching both."

Michelle Bachmann: "I support intelligent design... What I support is putting all science on the table and then letting students decide. I don`t think it`s a good idea for government to come down on one side of scientific issue or another, when there is reasonable doubt on both sides."

CJ, You`re wrong. Thomas Jefferson didn`t win his first election in 1796 due to his stance on church state separation. In fact many Americans considered him a heathen because of it. He won in a squeaker decided by congress because of an electoral college tie in 1800 against Aaron Burr. I`m not suggesting Jefferson wasn`t religious. He was, but he understood everyone`s concept of a deity would be different from his and that`s why he felt so strongly about separation.

Squrlz4SaleL Both your links were leftist interpretations of the links Davy submitted earlier. Someone`s opinion about another`s opinion is not proof of anything.

madest: Jefferson was speaking as to the establishment of a STATE religion, like Britain had at the time, that is what the Danbury Baptists were worried about.

“We have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion.” - John Adams

"Avarice, ambition, revenge, or gallantry, would break the strongest cords of our Constitution as a whale goes through a net. Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other." - John Adams

Sadly, our nation is in danger of exchanging liberty for licentiousness. Our founders feared such a day when religion’s influence was suppressed, no system of laws can hold up to the societal strains that come with ramp

CJ, Neither of those two bimbos will ever implement anything because they`re simply too dumb and too extreme to be elected. However I wouldn`t put it past the republicans to rig the vote (again) and give us 4 more years of moron. I`m sure you could get behind that.

Since you quoted the declaration of independence instead of the constitution, I`ll quote the author of the constitution in a letter to the Danbury Baptists in 1802:
"I contemplate with sovereign reverence that act of the whole American people which declared that their legislature should `make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof,` thus building a wall of separation between Church & State." ~ Thomas Jefferson

"Neither Palin or Bachman discussed teaching religion in public schools, nor teaching personal values, just that other theories exist."

You`re flat-out wrong. Evidence here and here.

(BTW, "Bachmann" is spelled with two n`s, not one.)

markust: [quote]I`m embarrassed how our politicians try to govern by Christian law. It goes against everything our founding fathers envisioned.[/quote]

You mean like this ? "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their CREATOR with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness".

Our legal system is based on English Common Law and is the basis for jurisprudence in America. Yes it does recognize a `creator`, and most of our founding father`s were religious men, however they were very mindful of not allowing a creation of a `state religion`. They also wanted America to be permissive with the respect of people to observe their own religion, without the government restricting it.

I believe you need to read up quite a lot more on legal theory and common law.

davymid: The only `America` you love is the one that fits within your ideals, Otherwise you call us a failure.

Palin and Bachman only discussed their beliefs, they did NOT try and implement them while in office.

Besides discussing the `holes` in said evolutionary theory should not be seen as teaching creationism. Treating evolutionary theory in our schools as dogma and those that doubt it as heretics is just wrong. censoring information from students is no different than the cultish behavior you decry about religion.

Neither Palin or Bachman discussed teaching religion in public schools, nor teaching personal values, just that other theories exist.

I think most of our politicians would get laughed out of the UK as soon as they tried to use religion in their arguments. I`m embarrassed how our politicians try to govern by Christian law. It goes against everything our founding fathers envisioned.

Or of course, you could just go to wikipedia and check their political stance on education. It`s all there.

"I like you davy, you say you `love America`, but that affection seems to be provisional when you back up another`s statement that a large portion of our population has a `distorted way of thinking`. We have a phrase for that kind of backhanded compliment, "Don`t piss down my back and tell me it`s raining".

Horsewank. CJ, you`ve got me wrong. I genuinely love America, and it pains me to see such great nation failing. It wasn`t a backhanded compliment. I`ll say loudly and clearly: "I love America. Crakrjak, I dislike people like you."

"You`ve made this false charge, several times now, without a shred of evidence for it. You`re just presuming that would happen because they both happen to be Christian conservatives. At this point I can only chalk that up to the same scaremongering you spout about global warming."

Well, here`s a couple of shreds of evidence. There`s THIS from Sarah Palin and then there`s THIS from Michele Bachman.

Your chicken little routine is getting old, and you condescension in assuming that people that would vote for either of them aren`t `more intelligent` is very insulting.

It`s cable news that is damaging conservatives. I was on a sailing vacation with my parents when we found out Palin was the choice for VP. Mom and dad were kind of horrified. But within a couple months my parents were so brainwashed by Fox News they believed Palin was just as smart as Obama. That is quite a sales job. I`m not being one sided - MSNBC is just as bad for liberals. I wish people would do like I did and turn off cable news. Life is so much better and happy. The best part are the lines between liberals and conservatives start to blend again like they should. No one is black and white like cable news tries to make people out to be.

It`s kinda personally sad, for me. I love America, I genuinely do. I`ve had the privilege of visiting there dozens of times, my happiest memories of many family vacations were spent there, and many of my dearest friends are Americans and they`re some of the brightest people I know. But, as Webz said so eloquently earlier on this thread: "The sad thing is so many Americans buy into this hugely distorted way of thinking and it`s nearly impossible to reason them back out of it. I feel like I`m watching America destroy itself and there`s absolutely nothing I can do about it."

Exactly the way I feel, couldn`t have said it better myself. Like I said, makes me kinda sad.

/climbs off soapbox, sorry for triple post.

For one thing, disregarding for now their stance on homosexuality, both Palin and Bachmann would have Creationism (presumably Biblical creationism, just one of many such religious fables one could pick from) taught alongside evolution in school. People should be (and are) extremely alarmed by this. And the population will vote as such. As I said to Crakrjak in a recent thread: "But the voters will decide, I`m just one vote. I think you`ll find that people are more intelligent than you give them credit for."

I always thought Sarah Palin was a vapid, vacuous bint. But this is appears to me to be a spiteful, vapid, vacuous bint. Which, by definition, makes her worse. Hey, just my impression.

When republicans/conservatives promote people like Palin and Bachmann to positions of representation of the ideals that they hold dear, even as far as potential Vice President and potential President respectively, they`re going to keep the dems in power. Come on, you guys MUST have better people than this to bring to the table. I mean that in a helpful way.

She and Palin are are hugely detrimental to women in politics.

"I find it funny that the swine flu broke out in the 1970`s under another democratic president, Jimmy Carter. I`m not blaming this on President Obama, but I think it`s interesting."

That`s so inane, pathetic, and divisive. She admits the statement has no meaning or merit, and yet she says it anyways just for the sake of jabbing at democrats.
