27. The Constitution drew the line pretty clearly
Edited on Mon Jun-23-08 06:27 PM by Super Soaker Sniper
"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof" Any line drawn by Congress or the Government constituting anything is pretty much off limits. While I believe whole heartedly in God, truly believe that Jesus is the Savior, I do not consider myself a true Christian. I also believe that God's standard, not my own is going to be used to judge me. I am endowed by God the right to believe this and it is validated (not bestowed upon me) by the Constitution. And this very right is also yours and everyone else's. You have a right to practice any religion you wish or not practice one at all. What no one has is a right to like it or to prevent one from practicing it in any way they wish.
