Episode Info: 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 of the right of the people peaceably to assemble and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.Perhaps, my fellow Americans, the most important political words ever written, EVER!These are the promises, the rights, unalienable rights of every person, all humankind, and especially, all Americans. These words should be memorized and drilled into the heads and hearts of every single American citizen.Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion. That means, House and Senate, don’t go near religion legislatively. Don’t make any law, direct or indirect, which in any way would favor, establish or support ANY RELIGION. For the most part, Congress has abided by that prohibition. In fact, the Congress of the United States at least at this point in time wants nothing to do with religion. In many ways, the Congress wants religion out of the public square, gone from the marketplace and out of public and certainly political life altogether.Which of course means that we the people should be concerned with Congress not establishing religion but:PROHIBITING THE FREE EXERCISE THEREOF.And they, the House and Senate with often a compliant judiciary are just beginning the legislative acts of PREVENTION which every American person of faith and in fact all Americans should understand and be concerned with.We live in a dramatic, aggressive even anti–religious day and age.

There were attacks on Catholic institutions from Boston to Florida, church property was vandalized including and especially statues of Jesus and the Virgin Mary so much so that one Catholic Archbishop said the following:“We have to be as vigilant as our Jewish brothers are vigilant against instances of anti–Semitism.”The vandals especially targeted statues of Jesus. That led the church to make yet another statement:“The underlying motive of these sacra religious attacks is clear: to intimidate and instill fear in the hearts of those who worship Christ.”That should not only send a message to the Catholic church, but to all churches, and synagogues, and even mosques. I wonder if these vandals, these terrorists would have the courage to attack the mosques and incur the ire of Muslims. Judeo – Christians by and large do not resort to violent retribution and of course right thinking Muslims the same. But if mosques were attacked by these fanatic, angry terrorists, I wonder how Islam would react. THE FIGHT OF FAITH IS ON, BIG TIME!First Preside...
