The President doesn't appear to incorporate Freedom FROM Religion in his Declaration. It is the FREEDOM, not the RELIGION that he's celebrating, isn't it? I'm thinking about whether he like his father wouldn't consider an Skeptic as an American subject. It would have been so natural for him to
incorporate the individuals who have no religious convictions in his flexibility of religion
day, however he has picked not to. That makes me exceptionally pitiful. I'm sitting at my work area today with tears in my eyes, as by and by, I have been made to feel avoided for my religious perspectives. It's segregation, plain and straightforward. On a last note, poor Thomas Jefferson, is moving over in his grave today, as this is precisely the kind of thing he said ought to never happen.
Mr Jefferson, who did not perceive the godlikeness of Jesus, and at the end of his days his thoughts were closer to that of an Atheist composed, "Accepting with you that religion is a matter which lies exclusively between man and his God, that he owes record to none other for his confidence or his
adore, that the authoritative forces of government achieve activities just, furthermore not conclusions, I think about with sovereign veneration that demonstration of the entire American individuals which proclaimed that their assembly ought to "make no law regarding a foundation of religion, or forbidding the free practice thereof," accordingly constructing a divider of division in the middle of chapel and State."
A Proclamation by the President of the United States of America On Religious Freedom Day, we honor the entry of the 1786 Virginia Statute for Religious Freedom, composed by Thomas Jefferson,
furthermore we praise the First Amendment's insurance of religious flexibility. Over the hundreds of years, individuals have come to America trying to love the Almighty unreservedly. Today, our residents pronounce numerous diverse beliefs, furthermore we respect each religion. Yet individuals in numerous nations live without the flexibility to love as they pick and some face mistreatment for
their convictions. My Administration is working with our companions and associates around the globe to development basic values and spread the gifts of freedom to each corner of the world. Flexibility is a blessing from the God-like, written in the complete self of each man, lady, and youngster, furthermore we must keep on promoing the essentialness of religious flexibility at
home and abroad.
Presently, THEREFORE, I, GEORGE W. Hedge, President of the United States of America, by ideals of the power vested in me by the Constitution and laws of the United States, do thusly announce January 16, 2007, as Religious Freedom Day. I approach all Americans to think about the extraordinary gift of religious freedom, attempt to safeguard this flexibility for future eras, and celebrate this day with proper occasions and exercises in their schools, spots of love, neighborhoods, and homes.
