Message #1884 - HolySmoke Date : 25-Apr-93 10:13 From : Bruce Baugh To : All Subject : Christianity and Government As long as we're slinging quotes about the relationship between Christianity and the US government, let's get the law of the land... As the United States of America is not in any sense founded upon the Christian religion, as it has in itself no enmity with the laws, religion, or tranquility of Islam, and as the said states have never entered into any war or act of hostility against any Mohammadean 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. That's from the Treaty of Tripoli, signed by John Adams on November 4, 1796. And it's the LAW.
