Definition of PURSUANCE: the act of pursuing; especially : a carrying out or into effect. Definition of THEREOF 1: of that or it 2: from that cause or particular. So, “This Constitution, and the Laws of the United States which shall be made in Pursuance thereof; and all Treaties made, or which shall be made, under the Authority of the United States, shall be the supreme Law of the Land..." Means this: “This Constitution, and the Laws of the United States which shall be made in [carrying out or into effect] [of it]; and all Treaties made, or which shall be made, under the Authority of the United States, shall be the supreme Law of the Land. Hope this helps.

It would people who want to misconstrue the document to mean that the Federal Government can do whatever it wants. If you believe there are no limits to Federal Power than I would call that totalitarianism.

The message is Serve the Lord God with all of your hart, and love your neighbor as you love yourself. It is not complicated.

You use the term tea-bagger, is that from your pastor? look at all of the comments, all the nasty stuff is coming from one side of the debate. A lot of insults, not a lot of substance. The author pointed out it was the Brittish Crown teaming up with a private company to oppress the people, thus "Corporatism" was born. I wont speak for all "tea-baggers" but I want the Government out of buisness, meaning no more picking winners and losers.

"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances."

The First Amendment recognizes the freedom of expression and religion. If these ideas are offensive to you, maybe you could find another hobby then reading anti religion websites. Here is a little fact for you, the very same congress that drafted what became the first Amendment asked President George Washington for a Proclimation of Thanksgiving. Your religion hating website missed this one http://colorado.tenthamendmentcenter.com/2010/11/...
maybe you could post it there, so we can get blasted for posting that too =)

No, but you will find these words, which I will repost again...
"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof;"

Christians active in politics do NOT violate the "establishment clause" and IS protected by the first amendment. I love how people how want to stop intolerance are often times the most intolerant people out there. You notice how all the vitriol is one sided on these comments. I ask, who is the real threat?

To your other point. here is the US Constitution on line. Nowhere in it will you find the words "seperation of Church and State". Those words came from a letter written by Jefferson to the Danburry Baptists, and they were taken out of context. The Constitution is the Supreme law of the land, and there are amendment procedings for changing it. There is the First Amendment which states...
"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances." Now no matter how hard you stretch the establishment clause, you cannot bar Christians from seeking to improve government, any more then you can stop any other group. The first amendment specifically protects Christians the same as it would any other group.

Dee,
On taxation without representation. Did you feel represented when Bush passed the Patriot Act? How about when Obama and the Dems voted to continue it in 09? I urge you to re read the last part of the article again, and set aside your, "I hate religion" feelings and discern for yourself what the author was trying to say. Then consider what inflation really is. it is a hidden tax. This tax is not imposed on us by the Congress, it is imposed on us by a bank, a bank where we have no representation. This tax hurts the middle class and poor the most, because it destroys the buying power of their money.

The economist John Maynard Keynes wrote this about inflation. "By a continuing process of inflation, governments can confiscate, secretly and unobserved, an important part of the wealth of their citizens. By this method they not only confiscate, but they confiscate arbitrarily; and, while the process impoverishes many, it actually enriches some."

Now, religion aside for just a moment. There is something wrong, and I think people know it. I noticed it when Bush was president, in fact the Patriot Act is the thing that "woke" me up. And it was pushed on us by a man who proclaimed himself a Christian. One of the best books I have read on what is going on in America today was written by a liberal called "Give me Liberty" by Naomi Wolfe, and I was given that book by the author of this article. Now, while I proclaim my politics as Christian Libertarianism, I think the biggest danger in America today is that we don't talk to each other anymore.

There is no debate, each side just starts throwing stones given to us by our "serve yourself" media. Where talking heads proscribe the best way to shut down the opposition setting up strawman arguments, and demonstrating how easy it is to knock it over.

Alfonso, have you been reading the responses? using Religion is the worst type of propaganda in politics. You will be shouted down and ridiculed in any open forum for attempting it. Lucky for us there are no thought crimes yet, right?

The teachings of Jesus come down to two very important rules. Serve God with all of your heart, and love your neighbor as you love yourself. That is the "spirit" of Philadelphia.

Alfonso,
I don't think you, or many of the detractors of this article understand the point Steve was making. I attribute it to a trained response to anything attached to Christianity.

The real taxation with out represtentation is the "inflation tax" meaning your money is being devalued by the Government, with help from its partner the Federal Reserve. That is a tax, and it impacts the poor more then anyone else. The system is propagated unger the "guise" of helping the poor. Meaning we need to borrow all this money to fund entitlement programs, money that doesn't exist, which will eliminate the middle class.

This is not a Republican vs Demacrat issue. because the message was delivered by a Pastor, the left seems to be up in arms, but we should all be on the same side on this.
