A God that knows his place...

By Diogenes (articles ) | Aug 02, 2003

Massachusetts senator John Kerry is incensed that Leviticus completely disregards the writings of Thomas Jefferson:

A fuming Kerry, taking on his own Catholic Church in the midst of a campaign for president, said Rome should have more respect for America's long-held separation of church and state. ... The Democrat said political concerns are secondary to his moral outrage over Thursday's Vatican statement on gay marriage. "Our founding fathers separated church and state in America. It is an important separation," he said. "It is part of what makes America different and special, and we need to honor that as we go forward and I'm going to fight to do that."

The Church's teaching on sexuality is universal and immutable, and addressed to citizens of all nations. Does Kerry think the Holy See, before issuing a statement on public order, should study the political and legal history of Albania, Uzbekistan, and Burkina Faso to make sure that their understanding of church-state relations is not offended by its teaching?

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:

    No where in the text of the Constitution or Declaration of Independence will Mr Kerry [aka CINO] find the phrase "Separation of church and state". Perhaps he could perform this act at a public press conference.

    Kerry's "idol," Jefferson, said to be the founder of the Demo Party, was NOT A CHRISTIAN, but a deist, who re-wrote the New Testament so that Jesus was no longer divine. Jefferson was so orgasm-crazed that he ABUSED [raped] his slave girls. Haven't you read about the Jefferson family reunions of Mulatto and Caucasian Jeffersons ? How about Kerry seriously reading the four Gospels at long last ? Poor numbskull ! [or does Kerry keep African slave girls ?] GIVE him to any Saudi sheik !

    GOD DOES NOT DESERVE THIS FROM AMERICA! Our Declaration of Independence declares "we answer to a higher power." Our laws are based on the Ten Commandements. Our motto is "In God we trust." All Americans should insist anti-God people be taken out of Governement because they refuse to answer to a higer power. Someday they will answer to this higher power but why should they be allowed to tear our Country down and take away God's blessings from us!!! A disgusted Democrat
