Freedom “from” religion?

Dear MRFF,

Where exactly does our law state that? You people are such anti-American, anti-Christians pigs it’d be laughable if the Muslim in chief didn’t admire you as much as he does. You do realize that satan loses in the end don’t you? Why then would you align yourselves with him? Losers just gotta have someone to hang with? The light is just to bright on the other side?

Enjoy eternity, and dress lightly, it’ll be very warm where you’re headed!

Dear (name withheld),

Where does it say “freedom of religion” if you’d like to go there? In truth our constitution says neither of those specific phrases in that specific order. However, a functionally intelligent human being could read the first amendment and understand that it may be restated in many ways. “Freedom of and from religion” is just one such way. How do you ask? Easy! If the government will make no law respecting an establishment of religion, then under the law there can be no policies which require religious participation. If there were such policies (and there are many) they would be violating the first amendment. Are you still with me? Here’s where you’re probably going to get lost. If all US citizens are assured that the government cannot establish laws over us based on religion, then we are “free from religion.” Take a few moments to digest that.

When you say “Muslim in chief” I’m guessing that you’re referring to our Christian President, Barack Obama. If so, what has lead you to think he is our ally? In truth, he is much more on your side than ours. Read this, if you’d like to shake the mirage of our allegiance and come back to reality. And anti-Christian….that one’s been being regurgitated so much lately that we’ve put up a blog post JUST to answer the bogus accusation. Enjoy.
