Pastorref's comment history

I wish just once someone would actually read the first amendment. It would put an end to all of this nonsense. The first amendment reads: "Congress shall make no law that establishes religion NOR PROHIBITS FREE EXCERCISE OF THE SAME."
What law did Congress pass establishing religion as a law? A federal agency (such as a school) allowing a Scriptural sign is not tantamount to establishing a law. The "no endorsement" interpretation is unconstitutional. It was never intended to give us freedom FROM religious expression. The irony of the whole situation is that the banning of Scriptural quotations is actually a greater violation of the beloved first amendment than allowing them is. I wish some of our leaders would grow a backbone and tell the overwhelming minority to just deal with it. Don't read the signs. No one has infringed on your first amendment rights by making a sign.
