US Constitution and God

Mikey,

Hope you had a great Thanksgiving where the Lord blesses America everyday because he sent Christian Pilgrims and Christian Leaders to a new promise land.  Our government is founded upon freedom of religion not freedom from like you seem to think.  Our founding documents like the US Constitution, Paris Treaty of 1783, and the Declaration of Independence all have references to God and a Higher Authority.  Why would you even care that a person has a dog tag with a scripture verse?  That is freedom from religion.  Not surprising as “Truth” is not something you stand for by doing what you are doing.  I am a former Atheist who served in the US Army and would supported “Dog tags” with Bible verses.  This is why Donald Trump is President.  You are taking away peoples rights and freedoms that are protected by our founding documents.

Hi (name withheld),
 
Got your message. Many of us had a nice Thanksgiving, thank you. Our Native American brothers and sisters, though, probably didn’t celebrate.
 
I’m afraid it’s not easy to understand the point of your message. Your reference to “… not freedom like you seem to think” has me scratching my head.
 
I suspect you don’t understand the idea behind the freedom of religion, but that’s not a surprise. Many of the folks who write us just don’t get it. Think “separation of church and state.” Think about it for a while and maybe it’ll come clear. As a self-described “former Atheist,” it would seem you’d have an idea of how narrow-minded some people can be. But apparently not.
 
Here’s a thought: read the mission statement of the MRFF instead of assuming you know what we’re about as a result of watching Fox News. They really won’t help you understand anything.
 
Reading a bit and thinking a lot can help.
 
Best,
 
Mike Farrell
