    From one of the reviews:

    My son’s middle school has an Oragami Club. Why aren’t you investigating the stealth Japanese attack on America’s children?

    Everyone knows you don’t fuck with ninjas.

    The whole phrase of “seperation of church and state” which is NOT in any founding document in American history, is laughable. Especially since God created man and is head over all government and is ultimate authority.

    God was the first government and the 10 commandments were the first written law. God and government cannot be seperated since God created laws and government and still rules the universe.

    Considering that it is well known that separation was the intent of the founders (note Jefferson’s letter), the only thing that is laughable is your understanding.

    Oh, and your ability to spell “separation”…

    The word “air force”, unlike the words army and navy, does not appear in the Constitution. Hence the air force is unconstitutional.

    I was introduced to the propaganda you are spreading in Christian school and Baptist church. Then I learned that the idea, if not the exact phrase, is present in the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution. Disestablishment and free practice ultimately means, in the words of Justice Hugo Black, is that “[...] neither [state nor federal government] can force nor influence a person to go to or to remain away from church against his will or force him to profess a belief or disbelief in any religion. No person can be punished for entertaining or professing religious beliefs or disbeliefs, for church attendance or non-attendance. [...] In the words of Jefferson, the clause against establishment of religion by law was intended to erect ‘a wall of separation between church and State.’” (cf., linked Establishment Clause article at Wikipedia)

    The religious and non-religious alike ought to defend and uphold church state separation as a cornerstone of a free society. The person who does not, in my opinion, is an enemy to religious freedom and to liberty in general.

    the 10 commandments were the first written law.

    Sorry dude, but the Code of Hammurabi was much earlier.
