Re: “Federal judge rules against Baxter County on Nativity scene lawsuit

Incorrect Olphart. My point is and always has been this isn't a First Amendment issue nor is it a federal issue--just like Skip pointed out correctly many posts ago.

So sad to see the spirit of the south die in support for a strong central authority.

Re: “Federal judge rules against Baxter County on Nativity scene lawsuit

So Vanessa it has almost been 12 hours since I challenged you to show me where in the Constitution does the "separation of church and state" appear. I keep getting a dislike for my comments but have yet to see proof.

I figured you would go silent because it isn't in there. The separation of church and state was an afterthought of Thomas Jefferson, who had nothing to do with writing and ratifying the Constitution, in his letter to the Danbury Baptists.

The First Amendment's establishment cause was for the sole purpose to ensure the federal government could not declare the Catholic or Protestant faith (or any other religion) as the national religion and run the church as the Englsh were doing with the Church of England. The Establishment clause was never intened to stop Montain Home from setting up a nativity scene.

Keep in mind as you stuff turkey down your pie hole today that when Gorge Washington proclaimed Thanksgiving he did so proclaiming the federal holiday to be a day to give thanks to God. Now that, although not quite there, is far closer a violation to the First Amendment than this nativity scene.

Happy Thanksgiving Vanessa, may God bless you and the ones you love.

Re: “Federal judge rules against Baxter County on Nativity scene lawsuit

Vanessa, I find it interesting that you use the Christian St. Andrew's cross symbol in your reference to Christmas. Why would a hardened aetheist like yourself go to the trouble of using a Christian symbol that might offend other people rather than just decribe the day as 12/25 or December 25? I wouldn't want you to offend anyone.

Re: “Federal judge rules against Baxter County on Nativity scene lawsuit

Crickets chirping... one dislike. Nobody has been able to show me where in the Constitution is the separation of church and state, and yet many of you insulted Skippy and spoke as if you were all knowledgeable of all matters Constitutional. One more time. Where in the Constitution might I find this separation of church and state?

Re: “Federal judge rules against Baxter County on Nativity scene lawsuit

Vanessa, i reread your post again. My post wasn't about God. It was about the First Amendment. Would you please stick with the conversation rather than going into an aeteist rage full of fallacy since aetheists have funerals and memorial services too? You were quick to attack Skip with your rants, but i am calling you out. You are a pathos filled idiot who knows little about the founding fathers and the purpose of the establishment clause.

Re: “Federal judge rules against Baxter County on Nativity scene lawsuit

Tell me Vanessa since you are obviously so intelligent, where in the Constitution is the separation of church and state?

Re: “Federal judge rules against Baxter County on Nativity scene lawsuit

Would someone please explain why so many southerners, which I assume many of you are considering this paper is printed in Arkansas, place so much faith in the federal government these days and not the rights of the states? Have we forgotten the lies told of the south to give Lincoln hero status and how he allowed Sherman to march through the south destroying everything in his path? Sad to see so many southerners believe they are standing up for freedom when all they are really doing is giving Mordor on the Potomac (Washington, DC) for the geographically challenged) more power. Sad to see southerners so easily bow down to the government master while attacking people who get it like Skip.
