Do You Defend the Constitution? Even From Jesus?
About that Constitution some claim to love so fundamentally, and call on
our leaders to respect and obey. America is NOT a Christian nation.
It was very deliberately and wisely created as a secular nation, Newt
notwithstanding. My copy of the First Amendment says, "...no law
respecting an establishment of religion...." That is, the law may not
be used to impose the dogma or doctrine of any establishment of
religion, including all sects of Christianity. It also says, "....nor
prohibiting the free practice thereof..." That is, even religions which
Christians hate cannot be prohibited or persecuted by law, even if some
individuals among them perform anti-American acts. There is no question
about the Constitutionality of this, whether we like it or not. The right of
Muslims to erect a Mosque near or on the WTC site is clearly protected,
whether it is foolish to do so or not.
If 9/11 had been perpetrated by a small group of fanatical renegade Zionist
Jews, (like the Al Qaida Muslims) would it then be all right for

The few Muslim Americans I know are exceptionally patriotic, though
struggling today with being demonized and their children abused in public and in

Mexicans and Mexican-Americans who are already in this country into our nation's
angry enemies, do we really need another internal enemy who used to be our
The basic error in the Holy Wars lies in the most fundamental
principles which are at the root of all of the factions of the religions based
on the occult idol known as The God Of Abraham. The three major
factions, Judaism, Christianity, and Islam, are each now nuclear armed and
prepared to destroy the world to prove their version of the absurd soap-opera of
Eden is more true than the others, and God will give what is left of the world
to them alone. If you really care about God, the Earth, the United States
Of America, or the human race, you might take a second look at that story.
