    Although there is no direct mention of GOD in the constitution..it is notable to mention that He is mentioned as GOD or GOD ALMIGHTY in the preambles of all 50 states` constitutions. Sorry to disappoint all the people jumping on the atheist bandwagon..now run on about how you were atheist before it was cool. You know you want to.

    "True, yet they never once mention God in the constitution, which should probably signify something."

    It signifies that they didn`t want what happened in England to happen in the New World. They didn`t want to have a national religion, because it would lead to oppression, which is what happened in England, which caused the Puritans to leave. But that doesn`t mean they didn`t believe in God. Many Founding Fathers did believe in God, and if they didn`t they were deists. They allowed people to worship whatever they wanted, and follow any religion they wanted, as long as it doesn`t interfere with the rights and civil liberties of anyone else.

    "While God is not in the constitution, defense is spelled with a S not a C"

    You are incorrect in two ways:

    1) "Defence" is an acceptable alternate spelling of "defense", although usually British.

    2) It was transcribed verbatim, meaning that even if it were misspelled in the original, it would be transcribed that way. In the original it is spelled "defence". I don`t doubt that "defence" was the most common way of spelling it over 200 years ago.

    The only reference to religion in the original Constitution:

    "No religious Test shall ever be required as a Qualification to any Office or public Trust under the United States."

    Seems like they were trying to make sure you didn`t have to prove you were religious to be involved in governing the USA. Kind of the opposite to what the GOP would like us to believe.

    @Otto: Really?!

    The purpose of the Constitution is to be a document that spells out exactly what the Federal government can and cannot do.

    It gives the Federal government limited powers, and leaves all others responsibilities to the states. We are a representative republic. The states are essentially 50 countries all united under one banner.

    Somewhere over the years, people have forgotten this.

    CrakrJak and auburnjunky:

    Nothing in your statements refute what I said. The Federal Constitution overrides all State Constitutions. As you said "the states are afforded most of the responsibilities not listed in the constitution or it`s amendments" the key words are `NOT LISTED`, the States are allowed to give MORE rights to its citizens than the Federal Constition allows for but NOT LESS. When State Constitions have listed a "religious test" for holding public office they are overridden by the Federal Constituions ban on them. So explain to me again how I`m wrong.

    Using the Bible to justify teaching religion is called circular reasoning, and since almost everyones definition of god and his guidance is different please explain which version this country should use and why.

    Aj we are most certainly not 50 countries, you`re thinking of the Articles of Confederation which were dropped in favor of the Constitution. We are one country, one Federal Constitution, 50 states.

    And yes the Federal Constitution trumps any state constitution, Article VI section 2.

    CrakrJak, Mississippi didn`t ratify the 13th amendment yet it still went into effect. Slavery was abolished even in Mississippi. The didn`t ratify it until 1995 after some public emberassment by Michael Moore. He tried to sell a black man on the steps of the state capital building.

    What does this have to do with the Tea Party? Individual members of the Tea Party movement may certainly be religious and socially conservative, but the movement itself takes no official position on anything other than economic issues.

    Not a Tea Partier myself, but let`s at least have our facts straight.

    The States have more power as a collective but an individual State cannot just decide it is going to ignore the Federal Constitution or any part of it.

And now that I think about it, maybe they should keep the Queen after all (or as she`s known in the US. "That sweet little old lady with all the corgis") because really who else are they gonna put on their money? Alanis Morissette? Mike Myers?

    Agnostic still means you believe a god/s exist. Allah and God are the same deity--they are both the God of Abraham. Allah simply means "God", it`s not a name. Buddha isn`t even a god at all, but a state of being--anyone who reaches enlightenment is a Buddha. The last one, I won`t even address.

    The point being made is that, despite the so-called platform of Tea Baggers, every one of them elected is a vicious social conservative who wants to roll back gay rights, women`s rights, and establish a Christian theocracy.

    And that doesn`t even touch the fact that the economic ideals of Tea Baggers would destroy this country.

    ...and speaking of uneducated.

    Agnostic: A person who holds the view that any ultimate reality (as God) is unknown and probably unknowable: One who is not committed to believing in either the existence or nonexistence of God or a god.

    Generally "God" (note the capital G) is Judea Christian and Allah is the name of the Islamic god (notice small "g")

    You are also incorrect about the general views of the Tea Party. We believe that government should intrude as little as possible into our lives, which would also cover the Government telling us what kind of person is allowed to marry another. If you look at the founding fathers, they are closer in being a Tea Party Member then either the Democrats or Republicans – and their methods have worked pretty well up until we started down a path of Socialism.

    ...Except, as I just pointed out, "Allah" is not a name. It is literally a word that means the same thing as "god". And it is the exact same god worshiped by Jews and Christians.

    And regardless of what Tea Baggers profess to believe, every single example voted into office has been virulently anti-gay.

    As for the whole part of "worked well until we started down a path of socialism"... seriously. Get over yourself. FDA? Socialist. Public roads? Socialist. Fire departments? Police forces? All socialist. I very doubt you want a country where you have to pay ever time you drive to work because the roads are owned by some private company. I very doubt you want a world where food manufacturers are allowed to put untested ingredients or additives in their food without regard to the safety of the public. Because the point where people die? That`s already too late to be getting upset.

    A purely capitalistic country is every bit the cesspool

    @Yaezakura:

    One extreme to the other.

    The reason why socialism sucks, if because it takes your liberty with it.

    In a capitalist society, poo may be expensive, but we are free to buy it, or not.
