The 1st Amendment to the Constitution of the United States of America grants freedom of worship, speech & press; the right to petition the government & to assemble peaceably. Specifically with regard to "religion" it states: Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof. Many on the left have tried for at least 50 years to re-write history with regard to "separation of church and state" and to downgrade the religious beliefs of the founding fathers. This quote should satisfy both questions: "Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports ... and let us with caution indulge the supposition that morality can be maintained without religion. Whatever may be conceded to the influence of refined education on minds of peculiar structure, reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principle." George Washington, Farewell Speech, 9/17/1796 (from "Being George Washington"). The Liberty Institute lists the many & varied current activities to attempt to eliminate Religious Freedom in America. A study in the American Journal of Epidemiology by researchers at the London School of Economics and Erasmus University Medical Center found that the secret to sustained happiness lies in participating in religion. “The church appears to play a very important social role in keeping depression at bay and also as a coping mechanism during periods of illness in later life,” an author of the study said.

Billionaires are bad, right?

from The Gray Area:

According to the news media and Democrat politicians, billionaires are bad (and it used to be millionaires too until they all became millionaires). So now, and since Presidential billionaire Donald Trump arrived, billionaires are the cause of everything bad in the world. Greedy, predatory, selfish, etc.

If that is true, why then is there an estimate of over $700M donated by Thursday to repair Notre Dame Cathedral?

Billionaires. Billionaire donations, that's why.

But, I thought they were awful people? Not so much. Just jealousy used as political bribery for votes. As a matter of fact, look around you on any given day and you will see the results of their philanthropy. Rockefeller Center, Carnegie Hall, National Parks, Vanderbilt University, Duke University, and even whole towns like Williamsburg, Va.

Keep all that and more in mind next time you hear Democrat politicians and media talking heads slamming billionaires.

How about current era billionaires? Bill & Melinda Gates are trying to do great things with their money, too. Oh, of course, we recognize that, because they are well known leftists.

Bull hockey!

Billionaires share what they have, and when they are not asked to do so, because that is the culture of America. Or, at least it used to be. Now there are people who think that billionaires should give their money to the government, they can spend it better than you can.

A bigger falsehood has never been uttered.
