Goodness you two you have in your minds and in probably in your mouths, what most of us would not hold in our hands.

As for Cato Oneness, you confuse the declarations of opinion of these men as if they have some divine insight to the truthfulness of Christianity.

I never said America was a Christian nation or any other kind other than a government written by men who knew there was a divine being.

Roger Williams, which most of you never have studied, laid it out beautifully.

Rejecting the moderate theology of Puritanism, Williams embraced the radical tenets of separatism, turned briefly to Baptist principles, but ultimately declared that Christs true church could not be known among men until Christ himself returned to establish it.

So, you and others must seek Christ's true church. Than the truth can set you and the others, free, from your ignorance or blissfulness.

Re: “Satanic Temple plans to sue state of Arkansas over alleged religious discrimination

JugHead, I never said the United States is a Christian nation. But, to deny it was founded upon the principles of Judeo Christian ethics, which lead to the development of Western democratic thought, is simply, simple thinking.

Re: “Satanic Temple plans to sue state of Arkansas over alleged religious discrimination

You can read what Washington and Adam's wrote, and then come up with, they did not believe in the Christian supreme being? It must be true, denial is just not a river in Egypt.

Re: “Satanic Temple plans to sue state of Arkansas over alleged religious discrimination

The Satanic Temple (a non-theistic religion that does not worship a supernatural Satan) has a sense of humor, but they are not a joke.

Non-theistic, but want to be treated as one? No joke, just idiotic.

Old Fart wrote: Most of this country's founding fathers claimed to be Deists who believed in a creator of the world who didn't interfere or care about human affairs.

You might want to read Washington's first inaugural speech.

"Such being the impressions under which I have, in obedience to the public summons, repaired to the present station; it would be peculiarly improper to omit in this first official Act, my fervent supplications to that Almighty Being who rules over the Universe, who presides in the Councils of Nations, and whose providential aids can supply every human defect, that his benediction may consecrate to the liberties and happiness of the People of the United States, a Government instituted by themselves for these essential purposes: and may enable every instrument employed in its administration to execute with success, the functions allotted to his charge. In tendering this homage to the Great Author of every public and private good I assure myself that it expresses your sentiments not less than my own; nor those of my fellow-citizens at large, less than either. No People can be bound to acknowledge and adore the invisible hand, which conducts the Affairs of men more than the People of the United States."

Or John Adams:

Relying, however, on the purity of their intentions, the justice of their cause, and the integrity and intelligence of the people, under an overruling Providence which had so signally protected this country from the first, the representatives of this nation, then consisting of little more than half its present number, not only broke to pieces the chains which were forging and the rod of iron that was lifted up, but frankly cut asunder the ties which had bound them, and launched into an ocean of uncertainty.


And may that Being who is supreme over all, the Patron of Order, the Fountain of Justice, and the Protector in all ages of the world of virtuous liberty, continue His blessing upon this nation and its Government and give it all possible success and duration consistent with the ends of His providence.

Game, set, match

Re: “Pair fleeing Arkansas psychiatric hospital arrested in Las Vegas

Vanessa wrote: It's also true, Jim, that the guy was found not guilty by reason of insanity.

Great job Vanessa, his not guilty by reason of insanity, must mean it never happened.

I bet who ever he assaulted feels better knowing it he was ruled incompetent.

Re: “State case helped halt segregation

In 2004 the Arkansas Legislature approved a law that forced school districts with fewer than 350 students apiece to consolidate with other districts.[5] A March 1, 2004 board meeting, board member Norvell Dixon advanced a resolution for consolidating with the Grady School District under the Provisions of Act 60. Another board member, Lee Dale, seconded the motion, which was carried. Another motion, advanced by Dale, stated that the new school board should be named the Lincoln County Special School District and that it should have five board members. Dixon seconded the notion, which carried.[6] In May 2004 the state board of education rejected the voluntary proposal to consolidate the Grady district with the Gould district, because both school districts were majority African American and the merger would have violated federal desegregation laws.[7]

It was the progressive liberals for school consolidation that eliminated the chance for parents of Gould to have a say in their children's education.
