Kelly Walsh Lucy is 100% wrong. I don’t mean to be insulting but that’s pure ignorance. The comments referenced in that treaty is what’s known in diplomatic parlance as “diplomacy”. All that’s being stated in that treaty is an affirmation that the United States is NOT a theocratic kingdom, unlike the Barbary powers.
- Then as now, the issue was the islamic caliphate. The issue was piracy and the raiding of western ships by the Barbary nations, which was an islamic kingdom. It was important to Jefferson that they understand that it was not a war between islam and Christianity.
- It’s nothing more or less than that. I HATE it when people like you twist the verbiage of that treaty to mean something that it does NOT mean. Ignorant people twist it to mean that the US isn’t a Christian country, and that is historically, factually inaccurate. The US was always a Christian nation that was guided by it’s faith and it’s principles.
- You have that WRONG! There is NOTHING preventing Religion in politics! The ONLY thing, and embedded in the first amendment, is that CONGRESS shall make no law regarding religion! don’t know where you guys get the idea religion can’t be in politics. It’s found NO WHERE in our founders writings nor in the constitution!
Religion teaches morality (ie 10 commandments) and has a Being that sees and will judge people’s intentions and actions. people shouldn’t have to go against their core values and beliefs in order to conform to culture or government. I believe the Christian religion is the only consistent and morally good religion (human on the other hand fail to uphold this good).
Kelly Walsh Treaty of Tripoli has NO legal bearing on OUR freedoms! None what so ever!! Man that’s a crazy stretch! Why don’t you read Thomas Jefferson’s writings where he makes it ABUNDANTLY clear that we must have religion IN our government but that government cannot interfere with religion???
Religious freedom includes freedom from religion. religious freedom means you are free to believe whatever ridiculous bullshit you want about whatever fairytale God you choose… but it absolutely does not mean you get to point your beliefs at anyone else and say…’YOU can’t do that, because of MY beliefs ‘ beliefs are opinions, not facts
