    Nowhere in ANY of those actions is one particular religion established endorsed or stated as the "Official" religion of the United States.

    The Founding Fathers didn't want the establishment of another Church of England in the Colonies...hence the establishment clause.

    It was never intended to exterminate any hint of religion from the city steps the way you and the other non-believers have tried to do over the last 40 years.

    Which...would seem to violate the last part of that quoted text.

    To Achieve Ordered Liberty You Must Have Moral Order As Well

    The libs/dems of today are the Quislings of former years. The cowards who would vote a fraud into office in exchange for handouts from the devil.

    And in case anyone forgot, the Ten Commandments are etched into the SCOTUS building.
    Good men sleep peaceably in their beds at night because
    rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

    You've only scratched the surface, my friend.

    Using an employer's property to plan to extort money from him through the establishment of a labor cartel is not a legitimate workplace discussion, any more than plotting to steal industrial secrets or otherwise undermine your job is.

    Girl Scout Cookies, like all solicitation for charitable donations has no place in the workplace IMO. We are all adults and capable of choosing and supporting our charities outside the workplace. That goes for the employer as well; no employer should be trying to aggrandize himself by pressuring his employees to participate in his social climbing through charity or whatever it is he is pursuing in that regard.

    Trying to get your coworker to attend indoctrination centers for Jesus or Krishna with you is not an acceptable workplace activity, especially if you are other than equals in workplace status. Megacorp's policy on this, if I recall correctly is pretty much the same as it is for dating: you may ask once. After one refusal, it's harassment.
    First off, the military isn't the private sector, and the rules are different. For example, we do permit charitable solicitation, and there is even a list of approved charities under the Combined Federal Campaign which allow for Soldiers to set up automatic deductions from their pay. Second, the various service Bibles aren't an attempt at prosletyzing. They are sold at MCSS, but are not forced on anyone. The removal of the service emblems is simply spite on the part of militant atheists who cannot accept any doctrines but their own being permitted.

    Telling me I have to attend an indoctrination seminar to hear someone tell me that I shouldn't tell Janie Bigboobs she has big boobs or Johnny Handjob that it's OK that he gives dudes handjobs is not an acceptable workplace activity either.

    If I've done nothing to violate the Code of Conduct I have to sign for employment, I don't need to go sit in a meeting and listen to a bunch of nonsense I have no interest in hearing either.
    Be Not Afraid.
