Some quotes of interest.

While I still stand behind the point that the First Amendment prohibits the legal system from respecting any one religion over another, here are a few quotes I came across in doing some other time wasting... er... playing around on the internet. ""The government of the United States is not, in any sense, founded on the Christian religion." -John Adams, Second President of the United States, Treaty of Tripoli, June 10, 1797" Hmmmmm... So much for the Representative's claims. Here is one place that references the "seperation of church and state" that many believe was actually in the Constitution: "“I contemplate with sovereign reverence that act of the whole American people which declared that their legislature should make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibit the free exercise thereof, thus building a wall of separation between church and state.” -Thomas Jefferson, Third President of the United States, January 1, 1802" Prove or disprove "God"? Try this: ""We cannot, of course, disprove God, just as we can't disprove Thor, fairies, leprechauns, and the Flying Spaghetti Monster. But, like those other fantasies that we can't disprove, we can say that God is very, very improbable." -Professor Richard Dawkins, British evolutionary biologist" In regards to claiming that legal marriage and religious marriage are one and the same, in violation of the First Amendment, and arguing that legal marriage being defined to include homosexuals would result in a negative economic impact, I argue that defining law by religious terms will grant me the following: ""Every taxpayer can claim a personal constitutional right not to be taxed for the support of a religious institution." -U.S. Supreme Court Justice Stewart" Andrew
