    Purposefully ignorant? The govt is more than brick and mortar just as it is more than the laws we follow. The people of the government are the government. If they aren't please show the laws votes or whatever else your ilk has thrown out that gives individual government employees the right to enforce or administer the laws of the United States.

It also prohibits the government from unduly preferring religion over non-religion, or non-religion over religion.
    Pompeo isn't the Government. It forbids the legislature, executive, or judiciary from taking actions for or against religion. It doesn't mean the the president can't have prayer in the WH, or Pompeo can't speak at a Christian function, or the WH can't celebrate Christmas or Easter.

    You're being ridiculous.

    What official business does it serve for the State Department to post a giant “Being A Christian Leader” advertisement for a speech that Pompeo presumably gave in his spare time?

    The rights to enforce EXISTING laws, not create their own. Pompeo isn't the Government just like a cop isn't the government. The constitution doesn't allow the GOVERNMENT (the legislature, executive, or judiciary) from taking actions for or against religion. It doesn't mean that the president can't have prayer in the WH, or Pompeo can't speak at a Christian function, or the WH can't celebrate Christmas or Easter.

    You're being ridiculous.

    Not that I know of.
    Just responding to YOUR post #2 in the thread which had nothing to do with Pompeo.

    I don't think you are talking about "real" Americans. You are talking about "Trump-hating" Americans.
    Most real Americans care if religions are treated equally in our country. Doesn't matter how many times you say it doesn't matter, hosting religious content of one religion without it being a part of other religions info is the government favoring one religion over another (unless of course that speech just magically appeared on the website).

    When I "dismiss" you it only means that I have determined that further discussion is useless or counter-productive. Don't take it personally. Go ahead and have your last word...and move on.
