Militant heathen Atheist in Texas and Governor Rick Perry
The governor of Texas (the Lone Star State), Governor Rick Perry (Republican) on August 6, 2011 in Houston’s Reliant Stadium will participate (sponsor) in a national day of prayer and fasting. A group calling itself “The Freedom From Religion Foundation attempt in Federal Court to block Governor Rick Perry’s participation in the event. The group citing what they call “the establishment” clause of the First Amendment (part of “The Bill of Rights”) to the United States Constitution written by the fifty-five delegates to the U.S. Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, 1787.
However U. S. District Judge Gray H. Miller refused to approve a requested injunction to prohibit Governor Perry from participating in the event. Apparently the judge is familiar with the First Amendment whereas The Freedom From Religion Foundation seems to be lacking equal knowledge.
The First Amendment in reference to religion reads: “Congress shall make no law respecting the establishment of religion or prohibit the free exercise thereof…..”
Many militant extreme Atheist and indoctrinators in USA’s re-education camps (public schools) purposely omit the part, “….or prohibit the free exercise thereof.” Basically the Founders inserted that clause to guarantee freedom of religion, not freedom from religion. When the men from the Constitutional Convention went on into government afterwards they attended religious services on Sundays in the Treasury Building, the Supreme Court Building, and the Capitol Building.
Does that mean the men who wrote that First Amendment violated the very document they authored? Do not think so. One should judge the meaning of the First Amendment by the actions of the men who wrote it and perish the thought, read The Federalist Papers. The Federalist Papers written to explain the intent of various sections of the Constitution to help alleviate the fears of the 13 State Governments prior to ratification.
In 21st century America thanks to thirty-years of anti-constitutional indoctrinations (brain washing) taking place in America’s educational institutions, it is rather easy for militant heathen Atheist to attempt such a ridiculous injunction. Thank God the Federal Judge is familiar with the Constitution and not one of them thar activists judges the American judicial system is plagued with.
