A Bill of Rights issue for Oregon

Well this was certainly unexpected…

Another of many reasons that I continue to no longer be an Oregon resident.

How can any state feel that they are above the U.S. Constitution? Do inalienable rights mean so little to Oregon and her residents that they should be easily cast aside?

Do you know how many times God is mentioned in the Declaration of Independence? Once.

Just so nobody thinks that I am taking it out of context:
“When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the
political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the
earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle
them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes
which impel them to the separation. ”

Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God, that is much more than just God. That is is the equivilent to god, leaving all faiths open. IN fact Nature’s God coule be interpreted to be much closer to Pagans than Chistians. Funny thing isn’t it?

 

How many times does God appear in the Constitution? Zero.
How about the Bill of Rights, is he there? Nope.
How many times does God show up in the Articles of Confederation? Zero.

For a nation that someĀ feel was founded on God, the supporting documents just aren’t there.

Now a country founded on the belief that ALL should be able to practice the religion of their choosing, that is all over the place. The First Amendment does a good job if putting that out there for us.
