goddamn faith in politics....

Before anyone shakes their head or feels their blood pressure going up, consider the hypocrisy of trying to govern people of the United States with any faith-based policies. "Freedom of Religion" is not rhetorical. It is as simple as this: just as you don't want people telling you how to live your life based on their faith, neither do they want you telling them how to live their life based on your faith.

The Constitution cannot and will not be further ammended based on one's religious belief. The Constitution would be a contradiction in the darkest sense. Imagine this living document having a red box with the following bolded text, stamped sideways across it: "VOID".

Frightening and appalling, isn't it ?

" A bill of rights is what the people are entitled to against every government on earth, general or particular, and what no just government should refuse, or rest on inference." - Thomas Jefferson.

The right to exercise one's own religion, or no religion, free from any government influence or compulsion

That's enough from that soapbox.  Back to rides & beats....
