When you're tired of the fight...

and you just want to get the dominionist propaganda and bad news out of your head, and let your mind be free... what do you do? What inspires you, reassures you, makes you laugh with its gleeful defiance of everything dominionism tries to impose?

The Tripoli Treaty: Establishment of the US as a Secular Country

LJ-SEC: (ORIGINALLY POSTED BY [info]guma_kawauso)

I was just reading around when I bumbled upon this:


I remember hearing about it, but I couldn't quite recall. But the document approved by John Adams, in Article XI says: "As the Government of the United States of America is not, in any sense, founded on the Christian religion ..."

Adams served as the nation's first Vice President, and the nation's second...

Just thought I'd give you some information if you get into a debate with somone who believes that this nation is Christian...

But I would like to present the whole context of Article XI:

"As the Government of the United States of America is not, in any sense, founded on the Christian religion; as it has in itself no character of enmity against the laws, religion, or tranquillity, of Mussulmen; and, as the said States never entered into any war, or act of hostility against any Mahometan nation, it is declared by the parties, that no pretext arising from religious opinions, shall ever produce an interruption of the harmony existing between the two countries." --Wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Treaty_of_Tripoli

Mussulmen apparently is an archaic term for adherents to Islam... so this outdated treaty sorta says that we will not go to war against Islam...

Officially, anyway.. *sigh*
