    Liberals removing God and Christianity from WHAT? not from America as a whole, surely you don't believe that? we can still go to church, can't we?
    or is it your intent to inflict Christianity on the athiests, agnostics, Jews, Muslims, and some others who might not be christian enough for the really big christian churches?

    Name ONE black person that signed the Declaration of Independence.

    FORCED to work for free on GW's Virginia plantation doesn't really count as supporting a cause...


    Them??? Name them. Do they have names?

    You have to use that little green arrow after the user name in the quote to link backward.

    You'll get the full gist of the conversation I'm having(attempting to) with Mellie.

    I doubt she'll post a reply. Anything but "You're right, I was wrong"... would be dishonest at this point.

    She kinda disappeared last night after I showed that twice as many blacks fought for the British.

    I bet the fact that twice as many blacks fought for the British would get overlooked for fear of smearing the founders image.

    I've already answered your question. Calm down. It wasn't just signers of our Declaration of Independence that helped found our country.

    Huh? How does the fact that more blacks fought for the British negate the fact that there were black "founders" who helped found this country? I'm a fan of telling the full story, not leaving things out for political reasons.

    Well as a populace I think it does indicate the majority saw more value in defending the Crown. That really doesn't look to good for the Founding Fathers IMO. And in regards to this law I think this fact would qualify for scrubbing.

    NAME ONE...

    Stop ignoring the question...

    It won't go away...

    Name one. Name a Black signer/contributor to a founding document.
