    is it any wonder that the framers saw the failure of establishment as in need of being severed ?
    it proved no different in the new world in it's failures as it did on the old ? freedom OF religion was of paramount import but establishment was the only way to insure it.

    sure would be nice if people understood the nature of establishment as opposed to the myth that has been created.

    Freedom of religion is bullshit. Religion has but one principle, the indoctrination of the stupid. As such, all religion needs to be crushed under the banner of social order. All churches, synagogues, temples, etc., need to be burned to the ground, with the property being taken by the government. Religion should be banned, with people only allowed to worship in the privacy of their homes.

    Ahhh, you're an anarchist? A "Law-of-the-Jungle" kinda guy, are you? Perhaps religious folks should adopt your philosophy? They might say that bigotry against religions is "bs". They might conclude that bigotry against religion has but one objective.........., the elimination of societal norms of decent behavior by those too weak to control themselves. They might arouse their religious brethern to crush such bigotry under the banner of Christ, Buddha, Yaweh, or Mohammed. They might rightly claim that those who incite others to burn churches, synagogues, temples, and dare I say it..... "Mosques" (you didn't mention mosques I noticed) are criminals! They might also tell us that such bigots should have their homes burned, and should be imprisoned for life with those of their own kind. Nevertheless, they might allow those bigots to continue their HATE in the privacy of their prison cells.... until one of their law-of-the-jungle brothers offs them as a matter of "anarchist principle".

    Educate us further on the subject of "stupidity", won't you?

    The RCC tried that long ago, and it led to the Reformation.. And certain Muslim groups are doing so now. Then you have the Chinese with their war on Tibetan Buddhism. The you have the war going on in Mayanmar by Buddhists on the Rohingya Muslims, Christians, and others.

    Seems like religion does not bring peace as it promises.
