    "I condemn the ideology of White Supremacy and Nazism. They are thugs, criminals, and repugnant, and are against what I believe to be "The American Way" "
    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

Surely Washington read it and suggested any changes he thought appropriate.
    He added third, to the date. Congress had a power over him. He could have vetoed it but that would not have gone over well politically and probably would have been passed over his veto.

    Yes, it is careful. No mention of Jesus which is common of all Washington's work. Unless you credit him with the Treaty of Tripoli, which was written under his administration.

    Your arguments are just as erroneous now, as they were then.

    Since I can't prove a negative, perhaps you could point out the law that prohibits elected officials from excercising their civil rights. Thanks, so much, in advance.

    We don't know the extent to which he contributed to the proclamation.

    They didn't have "a power" over him, they simply issued a joint resolution authorizing a day of Thanksgiving.

    And which was typical for the time period.

    Please, go back and read the arguments earlier in this thread. You're making arguments that have already been discussed.
    It is not the EXACT same thing at all. Nice try though.
