Satan sure has a hold on you.

Published April 11th, 2007 by Bobby Henderson

Mr. Henderson,

All I can say is, Satan sure has a hold on you. Since you feel you need to be spreading nonsense around instead of truth. My prayer for you is that one day you will find the Lord Jesus…not the “Flying Spaghetti Monster” as the one you will look to for your daily strength. It’s too bad that you are taking this so lightly, The fact of the matter is, our founding fathers founded this nation on TRUE religious principles, not the nonsense you are making up. I’ll be praying for you, and your followers.

Sincerely,
Kim [xxxxxxxx]

    If you are implying that they intended to create a theocracy as many fundamentalist wish, you had better think again. The founding fathers were far from being puritans.

    Fundamentalists love to reference the founding fathers but they loath democracy. They regard “democracy is the cause of all world problems…humans are under the law of God, and thus they CANNOT do anything they want or speak anything they wish to speak…democracy ultimately started with Satan…we can’t rule ourselves. God must rule us…those who actually set up America, and drew up the laws were people who did not favor Christianity. Christians living during that time disagreed with the founding fathers. They regarded them as being ultra liberal and they were.

    The founding fathers wanted liberty and freedom of conscience within the framework of the established society.

    What they wrote constituted the legal foundation of our government, They derived their principles from Natural Law. Drawing from Locke, the Declaration of Independence grounds its legitimacy in the people. The people are the ultimate authority because “they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights” and institute governments to secure these rights.

      You got it right, Alphy. Our U.S. Constitution does not contain the words God, Jesus, or Christianity. The majority of those present at the Constitutional Convention only chose to make certain that church and state were separated and that religious belief could not be a requirement to run for public office.

      There always have been those who would move America to a theocracy if they could. Amendments to the Constitution have been proposed by Christian zealots, but they have always been defeated. Christian pressure on Lincoln caused him to allow the words “In God We Trust” on American coins and bills. He hoped that this concession to Southern Christianocrats would help heal the acrimony of the Civil War.

      The addition to the Pledge of Allegiance of the words “Under God” were rammed through Congress during the hyper-emotional years of the cold war. This small victory demonstrates that fundamentalist Christians will try to impose their will on the rest of us through legislation if they can. Only the barrier of the Constitution spares us from public Christian prayer, teaching creationism in schools, and the display of the 10 Commandments on every public wall.

      The Jerry Falwells and Pat Robertsons will do their best to destroy our Democracy as established by our wise Founding Fathers. We must always be vigilant to repel such attacks. The Church Of The Flying Spaghetti Monster serves that purpose.
