Any Law Passed to an Establishment of Religion

An Executive Order Passed as an Establishment of Religion —


 

 

It’s unconstitutional, and voiced with disdain. The road ahead is dark, instead of bright and promising. It’s filled with fears, instead of hopes.

 

“The purpose of separation of church and state is to keep forever from these shores the ceaseless strife that has soaked the soil of Europe in blood for centuries.”
[Letter objecting to the use of government land for churches, 1803]”
James Madison

 

The First Amendment of the US Constitution says:

“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”

 

James Madison drew up the first draft of the Constitution, and incorporated the first amendment with those words. No law respecting an establishment of religion, or the free exercise there of, I’m paraphrasing here. It seems they drew up one infringing on free speech in the 1960’s under the Johnson administration.

Do we want to follow the ways of blood and feuding of the old world?

I thought we were Americans, and sought the truth and freedom. We went to banning Muslims, and to stopping refugees that sought the freedoms that we share, to making a law to respect our Christianity. Which is a slap in the face of the first amendment.

 

The Executive Order of Free Speech and Religious Freedom

This is the Text of the Executive Order of Religious Freedom.There is a section called “Respecting Religious and Political Speech.” which violates the 1st Amendment.

An Executive Order is a law?

It’s more in dividing the religions, they’re free already. I was young and didn’t realize the Johnson already attacked them. But this Executive Order on the establishment of religion, is the shovel full of dirt on the graves of Religions.

This is the end of the US, as I know it.

 

We make Laws to Further Political Speeches

This executive order was craftily grafted to serve their agendas, and divide the religions. It’s against the first amendment, it reaches into the public, and those who differ are pulled into the spinning sewage. We are to drown in this sewage, or climb out of this cesspool and stand on solid ground.

The politicians are pulling our worship practices into govt policies. Which is an attack on God.

When the politicians say God bless America, they are insulting us. God hear us, everyone of us, and God doesn’t live by the dictates of Govt. God Bless us, is just a dictates of campaigns. Also, God doesn’t bless us, unless we are sincere in truth. It’s just manure on the fields of politics.

Shit gives birth to shit, or an offshoot of shit. Without a seed to nourish, it’s a field full of shit.

Is this the America’s greatness that you want to see again?

Plant the seeds of truth, and see what grows, not seeds of division by dictates of executive orders.

 

JFK Thoughts on Religious Liberties and Free Speech

“For while this year it may be a Catholic against whom the finger of suspicion is pointed, in other years it has been, and may someday be again, a Jew–or a Quaker–or a Unitarian–or a Baptist. It was Virginia’s harassment of Baptist preachers, for example, that helped lead to Jefferson’s statute of religious freedom. Today I may be the victim- -but tomorrow it may be you–until the whole fabric of our harmonious society is ripped at a time of great national peril.

Finally, I believe in an America where religious intolerance will someday end–where all men and all churches are treated as equal–where every man has the same right to attend or not attend the church of his choice–where there is no Catholic vote, no anti-Catholic vote, no bloc voting of any kind…

Where Catholics, Protestants and Jews, at both the lay and pastoral level, will refrain from those attitudes of disdain and division which have so often marred their works in the past, and promote instead the American ideal of brotherhood.

That is the kind of America in which I believe. And it represents the kind of Presidency in which I believe–a great office that must neither be humbled by making it the instrument of any one religious group nor tarnished by arbitrarily withholding its occupancy from the members of any one religious group.

I believe in a President whose religious views are his own private affair, neither imposed by him upon the nation or imposed by the nation upon him as a condition to holding that office. …

Conclusion of JFK’s religious thoughts

This is the kind of America I believe in–and this is the kind I fought for in the South Pacific, and the kind my brother died for in Europe. No one suggested then that we may have a “divided loyalty,” that we did “not believe in liberty,” or that we belonged to a disloyal group that threatened the “freedoms for which our forefathers died.”
John F. Kennedy

And other Presidents Thoughts on establishment of religion

 

“The fundamental basis of this nation’s laws was given to Moses on the Mount…If we don’t have a proper fundamental moral background, we will finally end up with a totalitarian government which does not believe in rights for anybody except the State.”
Harry Truman

 

“Every new & successful example therefore of a perfect separation between ecclesiastical and civil matters, is of importance. And I have no doubt that every new example, will succeed, as every past one has done, in shewing that religion & Govt. will both exist in greater purity, the less they are mixed together.”
[Letter to Edward Livingston, 10 July 1822 – Writings 9:100–103]”
James Madison, James Madison: Writings

 

“…legitimate powers of government reach actions only, & not opinions, 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.

Adhering to this expression of the supreme will of the nation in behalf of the rights of conscience, I shall see with sincere satisfaction the progress of those sentiments which tend to restore to man all his natural rights, convinced he has no natural right in opposition to his social duties.”
Thomas Jefferson, Letters of Thomas Jefferson

 

Conclusion of other President’s Religious Thoughts

 

“If we ever forget that we’re one nation under God, then we will be one nation gone under.”
Ronald Reagan

“The government of the United States is not, in any sense, founded on the Christian religion.”
John Adams, Treaty of Tripoli

 

“The divorce between Church and State ought to be absolute. It ought to be so absolute that no Church property anywhere, in any state or in the nation, should be exempt from equal taxation; for if you exempt the property of any church organization, to that extent you impose a tax upon the whole community.”
James A. Garfield
