  • Then I wonder why so many of the Founding Fathers quote scripture and base so much of their writing on religion????

  • I think alot of times in politics, the politicians feel the need to make the public think they are Christians because the majority out there feels that if they are they are "good people" but I think they don't necessarily walk the walk, they just talk the talk. I do think its important when you are voting to make sure the person is standing for issues you believe in.

  • The thing is ny.chica got it right. Amendment 1 of the constitution. And the reason some of the Founding Fathers quote scripture is because they realized that religion is personal. Quote whatever religious text you want, just keep it out of the government.
