And this was supposed to be the party to keep the Church and State separate.

Was, being the key word I guess.

What a kick in the ass to their non-religious and not to mention arab/palestinian party members.

There isn't a facepalm big enough to describe my take on this.

totally political to get the Jewish votes.

I'm more disappointed in the the people/voters who complained about this, which lead to them changing it back. the stakes are too high. leaders should lead, but in a democracy, the voters have a say.

"The United States of America should have a foundation free from the influence of clergy."

-- President George Washington

"Is uniformity attainable? Millions of innocent men, women, and children, since the introduction of Christianity, have been burnt, tortured, fined, imprisoned; yet we have not advanced one inch towards uniformity. What has been the effect of coercion? To make one half the world fools, and the other half hypocrites."

-- Thomas Jefferson, from "Notes on Virginia"

“Religious bondage shackles and debilitates the mind and unfits it for every noble enterprise, every expanded prospect.”

-- President James Madison

“Let us with caution induIge the supposition that moraIity can be maintained without reIigion."

-- President Washington

"I wish it (Christianity) were more productive of good works ... I mean real good works ... not holy-day keeping, sermon-hearing ... or making long prayers, filled with flatteries and compliments despised by wise men, and much less capable of pleasing the Deity."

-- Benjamin Franklin, Works, Vol. VII, p. 75

“The purpose of separation of church and state is to keep forever from these shores the ceaseless strife that has soaked the soil of EUR0PE with BL00D for centuries.”

-- President James Madison


“As the government of the United States is not, in any sense, founded on the Christian religion.”

-- President John Adams in the treaty of Tripoli

“…that our civil rights have no dependence on our religious opinions.”

-- President Thomas Jefferson

“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion.”

-- First Amendment to US Constitution


"History, I believe, furnishes no example of a prlest-ridden people maintaining a free civil government. This marks the lowest grade of lgnorance, of which their political as well as religious leaders will always avail themselves for their own purpose."

-- President Thomas Jefferson 1813

“Let us with caution induIge the supposition that moraIity can be maintained without reIigion."

-- President Washington


Actually, this is a quote in favour of religion. Washington's point, if you read the entire speech, is that we should be very careful in even considering the possibility that morality without religion is possible. And I think history has shown him to be correct in advising caution on that front.

That said, what I really wanted to say was, as Canucks fans, how do we feel about this being a matchup between Chicago (Obama) and Boston (Romney). I mean, the only way it could be worse is if it was Calgary and Edmonton, am I right? Or maybe Calgary and Toronto (which incidentally is what our leadership here looks like right now, just saying). Seriously, how high up does the anti-Canucks conspiracy go? This sh** oughta been on X-Files.

Yes, religion can be used for individual moral conduct no problem, but it has no role in the state. Separation of church and state were the quotes he provided from the founding fathers - this quote supports that by not discussing the role of religion within the running of a state.

Anyways,

Clinton slayed it! Call it one sided all you want but he openly presented the other sides argument, and supplemented Obama's. In terms of polling right now, Obama loses in economy - hopefully this speech will help change that.

“When facism comes to America it will be wrapped in the flag and carrying a cross.”-Sinclair Lewis

A human being is a part of a whole, called by us _universe_, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest... a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty."-Albert Einstein
