Basic Math

The foundation of the United States of America rests upon the Ten Amendments, Bill of Rights not the Ten Commandments. Moses with Commandment tablets The purpose of government is to guard the liberty and freedom of its citizens. The purpose of faith is to provide moral principles for the conduct of life. These two purposes are neither coincident, congruent, nor necessarily compatible.

William's Whimsical Words:

Mixing government and faith serves neither and imperils both.
