I have written a lot about politics. Frankly, I'm tired of it. Ninety percent of those in office should be taken out behind the barn and have a good beating administered. They are stupid and avaricious people for the most part. Most of the ones that are reasonably smart are power mad. I need to give myself a vacation from that pig sty.
Being a cranky conservative, there is always something that disturbs me. I have recently been ordained as a Christian clergyman. There is a story there, but not to be shared here. Catch me in a local public house and offer me a touch of the Irish and I will share. What disturbs me greatly is the current attitude, among "intellectuals", against religion in general and Christianity in particular.
These brilliant intellectuals, they're actually no smarter than a fence post, never come down against Islam. Do they fear those peace loving Muslims will track them down and behead them? But peace loving Christians are an easy target. Nothing to fear there. Well maybe there is.
I, for one, am tired of having my freedoms, delineated under the Bill of Rights, my God given freedoms, trod under foot by a bunch of troglodyte politicians and lawyers espousing a legal precedence that never existed. And getting away with it.
There is no separation of church and state. None. Nada. Never was. The state can not "establish" a particular religion. But they cannot prevent the"free exercise" of religion.
Once again, they cannot exercise the "free exercise" of one's religion. If you wish to bend a knee and pray, even as a coach at a football game, you have that right. It is as much your right as the right a criminal has not to answer questions.
Why does the ACLU work so hard for criminals and against Christians? M-O-N-E-Y. They get paid when they win cases against our rights and for criminals rights. So, Congress, shut off that money hose.
Freedom of religion is covered under the first amendment, as is freedom of speech. As one can speak about anything at any time, one can practice their faith any place at any time. Both freedoms have some caveats like shouting fire in a theater or killing as part of ones faith. But, other than such excessive behavior, any removal of personal freedom is unconstitutional.
