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.

Political ideology distorts reality

from The Gray Area:

It is well known that the left & right share a different perspective of reality. The attacks on AG Bill Barr is another example.

The target is on Barr's back from the left & the media. He has dedicated his life and his current term as Attorney General to the Constitution, the rule of law and justice for all. Justice, no matter the race, creed, sexual orientation, gender or political affiliation. The latter, political affiliation, has the left and the media over the top incensed at him. In their minds, to not give preferential justice to Democrats is unheard of and the man must be stopped. Thus, in the words of Saul Alinsky, with AG Barr as an enemy, "he must be targeted, frozen, personalized and polarized". The target is on his back. That is reality.

Max Boot, noted Never-Trumper and CNN analyst, in an article today in The Washington Post titled, Barr's America vs 2020 reality, joins in to take it to AG Barr about his speech at Notre Dame on October 12th.

It took him 4 months of work to drum up some irrelevant and manufactured data to support the secular relativist destruction of this country that Barr spoke about.

Read the speech or the article about the speech in The Wall Street Journal and ask yourself a question from your experience. Not what Max Boot says, not what William Barr says. Not what CNN or FoxNews says. Ask yourself what your experience tells you. Is Barr correct? Or, is Max Boot correct?

With his supposed fact based examples of how much better everyone is now than 60 years ago, Boot is another leftist who talks out of both sides of his mouth for convenience. He is part of the political party who constantly tell us HOW BAD IT IS IN THIS COUNTRY IN 2020, AND WHY WE NEED IMMEDIATE CHANGE, now wants you to believe that everything is fine and progress is being made everywhere. That is what William Barr and everyone on the political spectrum with him are constantly saying, everything in this country is great. The opposite of Democrat Presidential candidates and NY Governors who say, "America has never been great". And, The NY Times would tell you, "America is just okay". Or, America was founded in 1619!

The hypocrisy and double talk from Max Boot and his ilk is loud and clear.

And, devoid of reality.
