Example of deliberate distortion of primary documents to push a false interpretation of the “establishment clause” by atheist secularists (a faith based religious world view)

Here is a quote by Adams talking about his opposition to the divine right of Kings, which is often taken out of context to perpetuate the false view of the establishment of religion clause in the Constitution. The part inside the parenthesis () is the part conveniently removed from the context in order to distort Adam’s meaning. Read and you’ll see why-

The quote used;

“Thirteen governments thus founded on the natural authority of the people alone, without a pretense of miracle or mystery”

The quote in full context;

“Thirteen governments thus founded on the natural authority of the people alone, without a pretence of miracle or mystery, (which are destined to spread over the northern part of that whole quarter of the globe, are a great point gained in favor of the rights of mankind. The experiment is made, and has completely succeeded; it can no longer be called in question, whether authority in magistrates and obedience of citizens can be grounded on reason, morality, and the Christian religion, without the monkery of priests, or the knavery of politicians. “)

John Adams again;

“The general principles on which the fathers achieved independence were the only principles in which that beautiful assembly of young gentlemen could unite, and these principles only could be intended by them in their address, or by me in my answer. And what were these general principles? I answer, the general principles of Christianity, in which all those sects were united; and the general principles of English and American liberty, in which all these young men united and which had united all parties in America in majorities sufficient to assert and maintain her independence. Now I will avow that I then believed and now believe that those general principles of Christianity are as eternal and immutable as the existence and attributes of God.”

The Thomas Jefferson Memorial Association, 1904), Vol. XIII, p. 293, from John Adams to Thomas Jefferson on June 28, 1813

Forest Services Founding Principles; Pinchot and Roosevelt

“The Forest Ranger is charged with overseeing and regulating the free use of timber by settlers and others who live in or near the National Forests. Last year, 1912, the forest service gave away without charge more than 196,000 worth of saw timber, house logs. Fencing, fuel, and material to men and women who needed it for their own use.”

A good way to begin to regulate corporations would be to stop them from regulating us.
Pinchot, Gifford (2012-05-17). The Fight for Conservation (p. 24). . Kindle Edition.

“The land within the National Forests may be put to a thousand uses, from a bee ranch on the Cleveland Forest in southern California to a whaling station on the Tongass National Forest in Alaska” (ha ha, the original multiple use)

Both quotes from Pinchot’s the making of a forester.

Pinchot always intended the land to be used first by the local settler, recognizing that this did not mean they could deplete the forest with bad logging practices or mine all the coal. If the woods continue to close off access the only people that will be hurt are the working poor; it won’t affect those with good jobs, it won’t affect Tim or Steve or Mitch Friedman, and it certainly won’t affect those working for the USFS.

The first principle of conservation is development, the use of the natural resources now existing on this continent for the benefit of the people who live here now. There may be just as much waste in neglecting the development and use of certain natural resources as there is in their destruction.

Pinchot, Gifford (2012-05-17). The Fight for Conservation (p. 15). . Kindle Edition.

“The first great fact about conservation is that it stands for development. There has been a fundamental misconception that conservation means nothing but the husbanding of resources for future generations. There could be no more serious mistake…the development of our natural resources and the fullest use of them for the present generation is the first duty of this generation.”

“The first principal of conservation is development, the use of the natural resources on this continent for the benefit of the people who live here now…Conservation demands the welfare of this generation first and afterward the welfare of those that follow.”

“It is the duty of the Forest Service to see to it that the timber, water-power, mines, and every other resource of the forest is used for the benefit of the people who live in the neighborhood or who may have a share in the welfare of each locality.”

Roosevelt said “One of these (principles) was to throw open all the resources of the national forests to regulated use.

We are coming to see that the simple things are the things to work for. More than that, we are coming to see that the plain American citizen is the man to work for. The imagination is staggered by the magnitude of the prize for which we work. If we succeed, there will exist upon this continent a sane, strong people, living through the centuries in a land subdued and controlled for the service of the people, its rightful masters, owned by the many and not by the few. If we fail, the great interests, increasing their control of our natural resources, will thereby control the country more and more, and the rights of the people will fade into the privileges of concentrated wealth.

Pinchot, Gifford (2012-05-17). The Fight for Conservation (p. 10). . Kindle Edition.

The Natural Forests are in the West. Headquarters of the Service have been established throughout the Western country, because its work cannot be done effectively and properly without the closest contact and the most hearty cooperation with the Western people. It is the duty of the Forest Service to see to it that the timber, water-powers, mines, and every other resource of the forests is used for the benefit of the people who live in the neighborhood or who may have a share in the welfare of each locality. It is equally its duty to cooperate with all our people in every section of our land to conserve a fundamental resource, without which this Nation cannot prosper. (meaning forest service land should be established in other parts of the country, not meaning that the people in Georgia have as much say about the USFS lands in Ferry County as the people in Ferry County.)

Pinchot, Gifford (2012-05-17). The Fight for Conservation (p. 18). . Kindle Edition.

The National Forest Service, one of the chief agencies of the conservation movement, is trying to be useful to the people of this nation. The Service recognizes, and recognizes it more and more strongly all the time, that whatever it has done or is doing has just one object, and that object is the welfare of the plain American citizen. Unless the Forest Service has served the people, and is able to contribute to their welfare it has failed in its work and should be abolished.

Pinchot, Gifford (2012-05-17). The Fight for Conservation (p. 18). . Kindle Edition.

After the transfer of the National Forests from the Interior Department to the Forest Service in 1905, some things were done that had never been done before, such as initiating Government control over water-power monopoly in the National Forests, giving preference to the public over commercial corporations in the use of the Forests, and trying to help the small man make a living rather than the big man make a profit (but always with the effort to be just to both). Always and everywhere we have set the public welfare above the advantage of the special interests.

Two Choices

In a letter to comrade Ferdinand Lassalle, on January 16, 1861, Marx wrote – “Darwin’s book is very important and serves me as a basis in natural science for the class struggle in history.”
Two Choices; (1) a government that is limited by the acknowledgement of a higher power, Or (2) a government which is the highest power and uses Darwinism to eliminate God-
(1) A government formed to recognize inalienable rights from a creator is a limited government; by acknowledging a self-existing, pre-existing supernatural Creator they admit they are under a higher authority than themselves, and one the people can appeal to and hold them accountable to.
(2) A Government based on socialist Marxist principles is unlimited in power or scope because it uses Darwin’s theory to eliminate or weaken the idea of God in a society; the result being that the government becomes the highest authority. The people have no higher power to refer to, they are mere subjects.
“Darwinism is the forerunner, a preparation for Marxism…Marxism is the application of Darwinism to human society.” Trotsky

Was the Constitution Written to fulfill the Declaration of Independence or is it unconnected

The democratic party is trying to remove God given rights from our conscience, and therefore even law schools place the constitution above the Declaration of Independence or act as if there was no connection; but the constitution is based on and written to fulfill the basic reason we formed this nation, to recognize and protect Creator given rights (as the Dec. clearly stated), and thus recognize that the Creator is over and above human government. In a speech long before he became president Lincoln said,  “If the negro is a man, why then my ancient faith teaches me that all men are created equal; and there can be no moral right in connection with one man making a slave of another.” Abraham Lincoln, speech in Peoria Illinois, October 16, 1854; and again in his famous Gettysburg Address he repeats and quotes the Declaration of Independence “four score and seven years ago, our father’s brought forth a new nation, conceived in liberty and dedicated to the principle that all men are created equal…” Those rights are not repeated in the constitution because as they noted, “We hold these truths to be self-evident…”. And the same men who wrote the constitution wrote the Declaration of Independence- After elected though, Lincoln was wavering on slavery, and unsure if it was worth fighting a war over; and he could not find clearly worded ground in the constitution to start a full out civil war to end it in all states- He was in a quagmire. However he then ordered a copy of the Dec, be delivered to him, and after much study realized what the fathers meant and how they felt it must be dealt with- he then and only then ordered troops into disputed territory, starting the war.

Lincoln clarified that he would never start a war except to protect the very reason our country was formed, and that is the supremacy of God over man’s government and the existence of those troublesome God given rights as stated in our Declaration of Independence-
“While he opened with a conciliatory tone, promising that he would never of his own volition “consent to the destruction of this Union,” he qualified his promise with “unless it were to be that thing for which the Union itself was made.” Two days later, speaking in Independence Hall in Philadelphia, he clarified what he meant by those portentous words. Moved by a keen awareness that he was speaking in the hall where the Declaration of Independence was adopted, he asserted that he had “never had a feeling politically that did not spring from the sentiments embodied in the Declaration… . It was not the mere matter of the separation of the colonies from the mother land; but something in that Declaration” that provided “hope to the world for all future time. It was that which gave promise that in due time the weights should be lifted from the shoulders of all men, and that all should have an equal chance.” If the Union could “be saved upon that basis,” he would be among “the happiest men in the world”; but if it “cannot be saved without giving up that principle,” he maintained, he “would rather be assassinated on this spot than to surrender it.”

George Washington to the Hebrew Congregation

From George Washington to the Hebrew Congregation in Newport, Rhode Island, 18 August 1790

Gentlemen.
While I receive, with much satisfaction, your Address replete with expressions of affection and esteem; I rejoice in the opportunity of assuring you, that I shall always retain a grateful remembrance of the cordial welcome I experienced in my visit to Newport,2 from all classes of Citizens.

The reflection on the days of difficulty and danger which are past is rendered the more sweet, from a consciousness that they are succeeded by days of uncommon prosperity and security. If we have wisdom to make the best use of the advantages with which we are now favored, we cannot fail, under the just administration of a good Government, to become a great and a happy people.

The Citizens of the United States of America have a right to applaud themselves for having given to mankind examples of an enlarged and liberal policy: a policy worthy of imitation. All possess alike liberty of conscience and immunities of citizenship It is now no more that toleration is spoken of, as if it was by the indulgence of one class of people, that another enjoyed the exercise of their inherent natural rights. For happily the Government of the United States, which gives to bigotry no sanction, to persecution no assistance requires only that they who live under its protection should demean themselves as good citizens, in giving it on all occasions their effectual support.

It would be inconsistent with the frankness of my character not to avow that I am pleased with your favorable opinion of my Administration, and fervent wishes for my felicity. May the Children of the Stock of Abraham, who dwell in this land, continue to merit and enjoy the good will of the other Inhabitants; while every one shall sit in safety under his own vine and figtree, and there shall be none to make him afraid. May the father of all mercies scatter light and not darkness in our paths, and make us all in our several vocations useful here, and in his own due time and way everlastingly happy.

Go: Washington

Lyell and Darwin’s return to Pagan theory

And since modern geologists admit Lyell made up stories and falsified data; and Darwin said Lyell devised his theory for the sole purpose of attacking the Bible. So much for objectivity…

“In England, It was (Lyell’s) geology and the theory of evolution that changed us from a Christian to a pagan nation.”
F. Sherwood Taylor, Curator, Museum of the History of Science, Oxford, England

Many Millennials actually think of themselves as enlightened, rather than realizing that we’ve just returned to paganism as a nation. And not only pagan, but a new viral form of paganism that was rare among the ancients. The old pagan pantheists served many gods, but almost always recognized that there was one creator god that existed above themselves and the other gods, and that this God had immutable moral laws and the last say in how we paid for our transgressions. Millennials think that the culture alone makes up the rules for good or bad, and that good or bad are relative to the culture. So, stripping the unborn or infants of any right to exist, infanticide, cannibalism, bigamy, pornography, human sacrifice, fornication, it’s all good, as the culture dictates; there really are no intrinsic rights or wrongs, just cultural differences.

“By offering evolution in place of God as a cause of history, Darwin removed the theological basis of the moral code of Christianity. And the moral code that has no fear of God is very shaky. That’s the condition we are in.”
Will Durant, prominent non- christian historian, in Chicago Tribune article, We are in the last stage of a pagan period, April 1980, shortly before his death
