A Separation of Church and State
|Warning this is me venting don't take it all for fact unless it is historically noted.|
Now although the Separation of Church and State is not in the Constitution or the Declaration of Independence, it is a concept spoken and coined by Thomas Jefferson Danbury Baptist Association in 1802. He clearly states:
"Believing with you that religion is a matter which lies solely between Man & his God, that he owes account to none other for his faith or his worship, that the legitimate powers of government reach actions only, & not opinions, I contemplate with sovereign reverence that act of the whole American people which declared that their legislature should 'make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof,' thus building a wall of separation between Church and State."
What's so freaking funny about this bullshit is that people will pick and choose what part of they Bible they can manipulate whenever its convenient for them. Let's not forget we have some thieves and politicians showing hatred, which goes against the Bible. Not to mention they over indulge, commit adultery, but I'm denied the right to marry the man I love and others denied the right to conception in the name of religion.
When it comes to the Separation of Church and State Sam Lloyd of South Carolina states "There never has been. It's all rhetoric.." Isn't that most of what these damn politicians speeches are is rhetoric and eloquent, yet meaningless words? Mr. Lloyd goes further to say "The state was largely created for religious freedom, so how could there possibly have ever been a separation?"
And Sam Lloyd is right. Since this country was founded for "religious freedoms" how could it be a separation of church and state? Apparently and unfortunately it rules the world. Just because you interpret God one way doesn't mean I interpret him the same way. We believe in different things. Apparently, in Modern America Freedom is neglected when it comes to the main religion, Christianity. Granted I am a Christian, but I don't think that Christ would be pleased at how Judaism and Christianity is twisted to down other people, to enslave other people, cause harm to others, and justify things that are unjust. Aren't we supposed to deal justly with all men and show love?
All I see right now is a lot of hate and bigotry. I need a freaking answer.
