he founders represented the majority of the nation's people who were likely at least 75-90 percent Protestand Christian at the time of the founding.
How is that relevant? The Bill of rights were written to stop the majority from stepping on minority. Funny how people who always talk about American freedoms forget the bill of rights unless of course they're misinterpreting the second amendment. yay
The founders did not establish a Christian nation perse. As substantiated by the inscriptions on the buildings and statue, etc in the government buildings and wording in the founding documents, Biblical principles were established but not Christianity perse.
considering Jefferson , Franklin and even Washington often denounced Christianity the argument will be hard to make .
freedom to practice religion anywhere, be it in school, government or private sector, uninhibited. This they did and this they practiced after the documents were established. Thus no fuss was raised about praying and Bible reading in schools or anything like that.
Yeah are free to worship anywhere... There is no problem with a child praying in school the problem arises when a teacher leads a prayer or tells a child things about they're religion are fact. You're employed by our secular government then those beliefs are not to impede on education of diverse children. That teacher may pray on their own time in school but not lead the class in such.
Whoever was in the majority in the school boards, in government, etc made the determination as to how much and what of anything, be it religious or whatever in the public sector.
except for the fact it's been deemed unconstitutional to do such.
thus, in our time, the majority supposedly representing us has spoken
indeed however our rights prevent them from stepping on minorities
But Doc, have you forgotten that we have a republic wherein each of us has a vote which we can cast so as to remove/install the sort of governmant representatives who will implement the wishes of the majority of us? This applies also to the Texas school boards and all levels of government. This applied to the founders, some of whom were deists. This is what their majority constituents wanted and that's what they implememted
except in our country issues relating to human rights a barred from being voted on and left to courts. Sorry you lose try again.
indeed mainly concerning marriage and few religious issues however unconstitutional cases like this need to be appealed to the Supreme court. If it were constitutional to do this we would still have segregated schools in the south. It's a disgrace to allow voting on such things
