Quotes from John Adams, Founding Father, Framer of the Constitution, co-author of the Federalist Papers, 1st Vice-President and 2nd President.
Statesmen, my dear Sir, may plan and speculate for Liberty, but it is Religion and Morality alone, which can establish the Principles upon which Freedom can securely stand. The only foundation of a free Constitution is pure Virtue, and if this cannot be inspired into our People in a greater Measure than they have it now, They may change their Rulers and the forms of Government, but they will not obtain a lasting Liberty. They will only exchange Tyrants and Tyrannies.
we have no government, armed with power, capable of contending with human passions, unbridled by morality and religion. Avarice, ambition, revenge and licentiousness would break the strongest cords of our Constitution, as a whale goes through a net. Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.

First I just want to point out that these scumbags are not POWs. They also do not receive protections from the Geneva Convention. To be protected by this, you need to 1) be a member of the military of a signatory nation, 2) be engaged in a declared war between 2 signatory nations, 3) be in the military uniform of your nation 4) be captured by the enemy while not violating other provisions of the Convention i.e. using an ambulance marked with a red cross to transport munitions. Or using civilians as sheilds, taking up positions in schools, hospitals or religious biuldings etc.etc. These scumbags meet none of the criteria needed to warrant these protections
The Liberty Amendments, by Mark Levin is a good start.
Now is the time to call your State Legislative bodies and demand that they pass a resolution calling for an Article V Convention of the States. Once 33 States demand such a convention, one must be held. And since the GOP controls 70% of the partisan houses, plus Nebraska, they will control the delegates and thus the agenda. They can reclaim their Constitutional powers which have been usurped by the Feds. Call your State Represenative and Senators today and demand it.

Misreading Jefferson on Church and State

Our Founders and Framers did not want a national church. The quote below from Madison is directed at a national church. . But any reading of our Founders show that they did indeed want religious expression in the public sector. The First Amendment left the matters of religion to the States. To answer the question below (from Madisonwannabe), it was John Adams who wrote, "Because we have no government, armed with power, capable of contending with human passions, unbridled by morality and religion. Avarice, ambition, revenge and licentiousness would break the strongest cords of our Constitution, as a whale goes through a net. Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other." George Washington also warned, "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."
The Catholic Church has always been a science oriented institution. Several of the priest who have added to our sceintific knowledge and advance the cause of sciene have been honor by having lunar craters named in thier honor. The 35 Lunar Craters Named to Honor Jesuit Scientists http://faculty.fairfield.edu/jmac/sj/scientists/lunacrat.htm The father of Geology was a Catholic Priest http://jloughnan.tripod.com/geolpriest.htm And since the conflict between Galileo and the Church is pretty much the only evidence offered by progresives condeming the Church as "anti-science" here is a quote from St. Robert Bellarmine who supported Galileo, "that the sun did not travel around the earth but the earth circled the sun, then it would be necessary to proceed with great caution in explaining the passages of Scripture that appear contrary. And we would rather have to say that we did not understand them than to say that something was false which has been established.” http://www.traditioninaction.org/History/A_003_Galileo.html
