    You really shouldn't fear your government, the government should fear the people.

    The people don't portray or use the power they have enough. There is a lot more things we can do to give the government a better idea is what is needed of us. When people stand up for their rights the correct things get accomplished.

    If one is an alien .... The I.N.S. Also Known As " La Migra "

    ATF (Alcohol, Tobacco, & Firearms) You gotta fear the guys who can tell you what wine goes well with an M16

    F.E.M.A.? Can they suspend your constitutional rights?

    daren1

    yes and thats the tip of the iceburg

    THE I.R.S. YES YOU SHOULD FEAR IT

    Yea,the government couldn't get anything on Al Capone, but the IRS sure did.

    The F.B.I.

    Shouldn't fear the FBI unless your doing something wrong....correct?

    True, Jefferson's exact wording was not "separation of church and state", His exact wording was, "make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof," thus building a wall of separation between Church and State.


    The phrase "separation of church and state" is not even exact to what Hitler said. Straight from the mouth of Hitler,(and there were two phrases)


    "Politics do not belong in the Church."


    "The Church must be separate from the State."


    Was Jefferson a Nazi or was a Nazi actually Jeffersonized in one of his views?

    I was simply pointing out Urquhart's obvious ignorance when alluding to the fact that separation of church and state is a Nazi thing. I was more "thinking out loud" and pointing out his ludicrous twist of a common knowledge. Really had nothing to do with the question. ; )

    "But when you see Christians banning together and demand Christianity be brought back into our "Christian Nation"


    Where would that be? Certainly not America as it's not a Christan nation no matter how much they want to believe it is or how much they want to make it so. Religion can not rule a nation. We've learned through experience. Besides, I thought all the Christians were leaving during the time of the Rapture. Pilots plucked from flying planes, people plucked from speeding cars, millions just vanish, poof gone. At least that's what a Christian here said.

    My point is that there are a growing number of people in the US that want to abolish the wall of separation of church and state. When that happens, and it will, our country will fall. Our country will have created an image of the beast.

    Mitchell

    Btw, Colleen, I think that we might agree on one thing, although not right now at this moment. The answer to daren1 will be the Christian Church and yes if you don't want to receive the Mark of the Beast you should fear it.

    Mitchell

    It may not appear as though it could happen. But I maintain that the Bible is true and faithful. The Bible paints a clear picture in reference to the future prophetic events. So from my understanding these things will happen, when, I don't claim to know. But when you see Christians banning together and demand Christianity be brought back into our "Christian Nation" , when you see this movement gaining momentum. Then I recommend to you that you study especially the book of Daniel and Revelation. They can be understood with careful study. And guess what, don't trust the ministers.

    Mitchell

    Like I said, there is something that we might agree on. It sounds as if we do!

    Mitchell, I don't think that will happen again. Up until 1833 six states had governments that were run by church religions. Massachusetts was the last Eastern state to disestablish themselves. But even today, there are people who believe in anti-disestablishmontarism. The laws were finally established in the 1880s when the Supreme Court ruled against the Mormons. So you see, we did have state governments run by churches in the past, and the world did not come crashing down around us. Even so, I would not want that to happen today either.

    IRS

    <a href="/users/1959/tsc/">@TSC</a> - The FBI protects and defends the nation against such threats as terrorism, political corruption, white-collar crime, organized crime, cyper attack, and violent crime.


    I guess you would fear, it you committed any of the above...correct?

    Congress and we should clean house and start over.

    I. R. S. AND YOU BETTER FEAR IT11111

    its the one nobody knows about

    Maybe we should fear.Our Mortgage companys.

    The one soon to be established to tell us how to teach our kids in local schools. It is coming soon. The only way that agency will succeed is by lowering the standards so that all kids will make the grade. Combine that with political correctness and the next generations will be doomed to mediocracy.

    I don't know of an agency, but I know where we are headed.


    Christine O’Donnell isn’t the only Delaware Tea Party candidate making waves.
    The seat in the House of Representatives currently held by Republican Mike Castle — who was defeated by O’Donnell in Tuesday’s Senatorial primary — is also up for grabs. The Republican primary for that office was won by Tea Partier Glen Urquhart, and it turns out that his political positions may be even more unique than O’Donnell’s.
    “Do you know, where does this phrase ’separation of church and state’ come from?” Urquhart asked at a campaign event last April. “It was not in Jefferson’s letter to the Danbury Baptists. … The exact phrase ’separation of Church and State’ came out of Adolph Hitler’s mouth, that’s where it comes from. So the next time your liberal friends talk about the separation of Church and State ask them why they’re Nazis.”

    I gave you a TU to take away his TD ; )

    Mitchell

    Gary did you just give me a thumbs down? Cause I'm just quoting from a Republican Tea Partier named Glen Urquhart. I certainly don't believe what he says. I believe one of the greatest privileges in the US is the Separation of church and state. I don't want any church to dictate to our government. Please try to pay attention when you read a comment.

    Mitchell

    Thanks Colleen, that was mighty kind of you!

    gary

    AND TELL US WHAT MAKES YOU THINK THOSE WORDS WERE FROM HITLER? HE CERTAINLY WAS NOT BORN IN THE 1700'S AND WASN'T AROUND WHEN THEY WROTE THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES.

    The separation of church and state was enacted so that no religion could control govt as the church of England and the Catholic churches did in the past centuries. It has nothing to do with putting Christmas scenes or the ten commandments on any govt buildings or properties. If U disagree with me, go back and read the Constitution and the meanings of the amendments.
