Philip Rivers, quarterback for the San Diego Chargers, has suffered one to many blows to the head as he has come out in favor of Republican presidential hopeful Rick Santorum. His warped reasoning for doing so were, “because of his stance on issues that attack vital Christian values our country was founded upon: no abortion, upholding traditional marriage, defending religious freedom, no euthanasia.”
There have been many of these narrow minded people who vote specifically because of the President’s values and not that the President will get us out of this horrid impoverished economy. To vote in that manner is country suicide and shows the lack of intelligence in some of the American people. In essence, they’re responsible for the long decline of the country. We’re seeing progress made and those people are losing in numbers. The statistics and polls over the last 20 years specifically are demonstrating this.
Also one of the bullet points that they seem to overuse is what Philip Rivers just did, “…vital Christian values our country was founded upon.”
Anyone who knows anything about history knows that the Founding Fathers WERE NOT founded upon Christian values. In fact, The founding fathers were against this nation being founded on religion… any religion, and view organized religious with mistrust. They found ‘faith’ to be not be a matter of the state, but the choice of the individual citizen to worship phony mysticism as they so choose.
The Founding fathers DID NOT allow any religion to have an influence or role in government. Period. They were both separate in the eyes of the state. No one seems to bother correcting these guys so I have to do it. They should not be allowed a voice in the media they so hate in order to spread their hate and lies. I and you also will continue to debunk all their myths from here to the grave and the other side and back. They all follow each other like cattle without investigating anything which is typical among bible thumping trailer trash.
Some of the actual quotes by our Founding Fathers who vehemently were against mixing religion with government and in fact WERE NOT religious:
“Religion and government will both exist in greater purity, the less they are mixed together.” – James Madison
“The appropriation of funds of the United States for the use and support of religious societies, [is] contrary to the article of the Constitution which declares that ‘Congress shall make no law respecting a religious establishment'” – James Madison
“The Christian god is a three headed monster, cruel, vengeful, and capricious. If one wishes to know more of this raging, three headed beast-like god, one only needs to look at the caliber of people who say they serve him. They are always of two classes: fools and hypocrites.” – Thomas Jefferson
“Among the sayings and discourses imputed to him [Jesus Christ} by his biographers, I find many passages of fine imagination, correct morality, and of the most lovely benevolence; and others, again, of so much ignorance, so much absurdity, so much untruth, charlatanism and imposture, as to pronounce it impossible that such contradictions should have proceeded from the same being.” – Thomas Jefferson
“I almost shudder at the thought of alluding to the most fatal example of the abuses of grief which the history of mankind has preserved–the Cross. Consider what calamities that engine of grief has produced!” – John Adams
“As to Jesus of Nazareth…I think the system of morals and his religion, as he left them to us, the best the world ever saw or is likely to see; but I apprehend it has received various corrupting changes, and I have, with most of the present dissenters in England, some doubts as to his divinity.” – Benjamin Franklin
