    Can't wait to see what the libs make of this one. Imagine if J Falwell was looking for a grant for a Christan community center.


    Esoecially since this guy is a slum landlord and tax cheat.

    Are you missing it? No. Separation of church and state has more to do with how people use to be forced into a particular religion favored or sponsored by the state or country. Separation of church and state merely means the government or ruling body can not tell you what religion you must subscribe to. It has nothing to do with government never interacting with religions or vice versa.

    That's quite the broad brush there. You're quite the antagonistic moderator, aren't you?

    I guess we can assume it was you that locked down the Darryl thread? On what grounds? Too much dissent?

    1) I expressed curiosity at the reaction of libs to their pet project getting taxpayer money.

    2) If I were worried about dissent it would have been closed a week ago.

    The Establishment Clause prevents the government from favoring one religion over another. It isn't a stretch to deduce that funding a religious builing for $5 million is favoring one religion over another ......

    divinity.wfu.edu/rpa/govfunding.html
    >>>>>>1947 decision in Everson v. Board of Education, the Court interpreted the Establishment Clause broadly to ban the flow of many types of governmental aid to religious institutions or for religious activities. The Court stated: The "establishment of religion" clause of the First Amendment means at least this: Neither a state nor the Federal Government can set up a church. Neither can pass laws which aid one religion, aid all religions, or prefer one religion over another>>>>>>

    OK I can see your point. But, if the money is made available to anyone building there I don't see how you can stop them from applying for it.

    LOL... he can if he likes... but pointing out one (1) mod's antagonizing and broad brush stereotyping makes it rather apples:eek:ranges.
