They DID appear in a PRIVATE letter written by Thomas Jefferson, and have no legal authority in this country, in spite of the ignorant people who think otherwise. Your article is just another attempt by the secularists to re-write history, an action that is becoming a very common occurrence here. These people single out Christianity PARTICULARLY, for harassment, these are the politically correct folks, wake up!
Well... one thing is true. The country was more closely based on Judeo-Christian principles than the vast majority of today's churches and churchgoers are. Principles of right and wrong. Principles of equality. Principles of tolerance. Principles of kindness. Principles of sharing. Principles against war and greed.
Seems the false prophets were able to make great inroads. Today, what is done in the name of Christianity, is hardly Christian.
We have the Obamites saying "we should accept and love one another, and help one another" while the Palinites are launching another crusade (against Islam, secularism and homosexuality), and longing for another great "purging" to which Katrina was just a prelude (Noah, Sodom & Gomorrah look out!) all the while grabbing more and more money like greedy little money-changers all in the name of our new savior "capitalism". Now who do you think Christ himself would respect today?
Zinfella, Sinfella... you've lost the plot. You've lost the Message. You need to be born again. But of course you don't worry about that. Jesus has saved you, so you can be as much of a faggot hating Muslim hating secular hating asshole as you like without fear of repercussion.
Jesus gave but one commandment. To love. "Love them as I have loved you." In that, Zin, you have failed. No worries. God will have mercy on your (soon to depart) soul.
And as more people like you die off, more people like us are born. And the cycle will renew itself to the real Message once again. When it does, I may even go to church.
That's the truth. Nothing is "missed".
