An open letter to J. Karl Miller

This gallery contains 2 photos.

Finally, I have heard and read the Thomas Jefferson quoting of Cesare Beccaria’s “Essay on Crimes and Punishments…” The quote was not a statement in support of the right to bear arms, but written as part of Jefferson’s studies to become a lawyer. Jefferson was quoting important cases of the time which he complied in a series of two books titled “Commonplace Books.” Continue reading

“Meet the Press” Religion and Government

This gallery contains 2 photos.

Anne Graham Lotz said that she would not vote for a person who did not believe in God because a non-believer could not be morally good. Listening to Ms. Lotz and the Rev. Billy Graham preach, I can only assume that Ms. Lotz meant the God as believed by Jews and Christians. Continue reading

Church and State Separation

This gallery contains 6 photos.

One of the arguments made by the proponents of the marriage between Church and State is the mistaken notion that the United States was founded as a Christian nation and that the Constitution is somehow a one way street, that it only prevents the government from interfering in our citizen’s personal lives; that our faith is our own and the government has no right to change that.

Not a Christian Nation

Allow me to discuss what I do know about American history.

However, this does not prevent the Christian nation proponents from referring to the Massachusetts Bay Colony and the two Puritan settlements of Salem and Plymouth. What they seem to neglect is the third Massachusetts settlement of Ma-re, which was an Anglo-Saxon pagan settlement. Continue reading
