It's a global Jihad, stupid. Allowing that poison into the country is only going to increase the damage it inflicts on others.
Trump: "When You Open Your Heart To Patriotism, There Is No Room For Prejudice"
You can't reason anyone out of a position they didn't reason themselves into in the first place.
I'll go with my July 2014 answer: http://www.debatepolitics.com/polls/...post1063426679 (America is or is not a Christian Nation.)
“I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.
the u.s. was founded by christians, it was a Christian nation however it is no longer.
as for the treaty, here it is again:
As for historian John Fea ...he notes : the United States was not founded on the Christian religion..........he focuses on the United States.......not the Government of the United States which the treaty says.ARTICLE 11.
As the government of the United States of America is not in any sense founded on the Christian Religion,-as it has in itself no character of enmity against the laws, religion or tranquility of Musselmen,-and as the said States never have entered into any war or act of hostility against any Mehomitan nation, it is declared by the parties that no pretext arising from religious opinions shall ever produce an interruption of the harmony existing between the two countries.
the government is not christian, all the constitution does is setup the structure of the federal government, delegate the government few powers, leaving all other powers to the states creating federalism and the bill of rights creating restrictions on the federal government.
you can find on the internet many people talking about this subject, .......and even find were people will leave out the words ....."As the government"
Anti-Democracy advocate, Mixed government is the only good government
THE second point to be examined is, whether the [constitutional ]convention were authorized to frame and propose this mixed Constitution.
Or you can look at the other parts of the world that have legalized SSM and it's gone exactly the same.
btw, please tell us who created the institution or word marriage? Probably was a gay "celibate" priest
The US is a country with lots of Christians in it. That doesn't make it a "Christian nation."
I made the topical foundation of my argument abundantly clear by indicating the definition and mindset I was coming from was one of political science...where as the OP left it COMPLETELY open ended.
If you want to argue against my point from the actual foundation that I used, go right ahead. If you want to bitch that I didn't choose to use the definition YOU prefer, and then wish to try and take my part away based on fraudulent logic by attacking a strawman of your own creation by citing a different definition than the one I clearly indicated, then you're more than welcome to engage in your debate with the strawman, but I'm not interested in joining you.
Imagine if Walmart owned access to all the streets in your town. You can go to Target or the mom and pop downtown if you want, but all the roads leading there require a toll, whereas the roads leading to Walmart are free. That is not the avenue the internet needs to go down.
