  • I actually do believe the US is a secular nation. I agree with libertarianism and the right for private businesses to deny service but the US doesn't really base laws off religion. The first amendment does give the right to freedom of religion but it also says Congress shall make no law respecting or the establishment of a religion. Treaty of Tripoli article 11 James Adams actually did say this country is not founded on a Christian God he even defends Islam's right to religious freedom. A Christian nation would imply that we made Christianity our official religion which that would be the establishment of a religion. Iceland is a country that has made Christianity it's official religion. A secular nation means we accept all forms of religion without promoting one over the other. So I think the first amendment is clear freedom of religion without the establishment of religion.

  • This is more than non-convincing. It must hurt if so many founders are known as Deists among most known, most important influential even crucial names. Certainly among those few that people can name. So now they are not even Deists? And one of them is secularist? The Age of reason is anti christian. Not secular. Vast majority of founders were christians and you have to make them all christian? When there are quotes and writings which clearly show what they believed. They were fond of their christian friends, family, so of course they loved tradition, community (going to church) events...the culture. Christian culture. With majority christian population the country is a nation of christians /christian nation. Culturally! Since majority of founders were christian, their personal beliefs are not a secret or surprise. What says in official document is (more) important. Even today, from courts to money, everywhere. Judging by the culture one would think US is a theocracy. Technically violating constitution in many ways. If the Wall is about state religion and if it is not a theocracy, in what sense it is christian then? Other than culturally? You say the wall is against state religion but at the same time you use ONE STATE constitution as example of state religion? By declaring -establishing the religion of the state of Pennsylvania ? Which goes against THE constitution. In case it is still on the books, federal law trumps state law. "Danbury Baptist church" You acknowledge that the Wal is about separation of church and state. But going to church the next day and inviting a preacher (with opposing views I presume) somehow violets everything he wrote? The wall protects your free expression. And the other denomination in power (in office) cannot make laws based on their denomination. You have freedom of and from religion. Secular doesn't mean anti christian. It's neutral. theocracy, beingculturally christian doesn't mean that the founding document is Not secular?

  • Posted this comment on another of Crowder's Barton videos: "So apparently David Barton is really not a credible historian. Other historians have disavowed his work and said he misrepresented facts. He got in trouble in like the 90s for making up quotes from the founding fathers (he came out and confirmed they weren’t real quotes), he got in a bit of trouble for citing second hand sources, and he wrote a book on Jefferson that was widely discredited. All this doesn’t mean everything he says is a lie, but I would still be wary of him and only accept that which cannot be refuted (i.e. direct excerpts from historical documents)" Also saw that in 2013 he claimed that climate change was caused because of abortion laws.

  • How stupid, if this was a christian nation it would be covered in the declaration of independence and the constitution, the treaty of Tripoli says we're not a christian nation, its funny this asshole doesn't talk about the Jefferson bible and lets forget to mention the only way religion survives is by indoctrinating atheist born children before they have the choice to choose for themselves, remove indoctrination and religion dies. Faith is not a virtue. “It is from the Bible that man has learned cruelty, rapine, and murder; for the belief of a cruel God makes a cruel man.” ― Thomas Paine, The Age of Reason. “Of all the systems of religion that ever were invented, there is no more derogatory to the Almighty, more unedifying to man, more repugnant to reason, and more contradictory to itself than this thing called Christianity― Thomas Paine

  • If people don't know America is secular nation they really need to reread their history. The Founding Fathers made it very clear America was secular. I don't understand why the looney Christian right want a Christian theocracy. Because that is what they are asking for when they want Christianity to rule everything in America. This is what's wrong with the Republican party they are far removed from their Right-wing Librarianism. This is why Barry Goldwater had a problem with the Religious Right. And warn us about them. There is a separation between Church and State and it says so right in the first clause of the First Admendment the Founding Fathers said so more than once. And Thomas Jefferson made this very clear as well. America is secular for a reason so everyone can have their right to religion. People really need to read European history and see the dangers of a theocracy of any kind. Bible is backwards. Stuck in ancient times of the Middle East. If we are such a Christian nation has many Christians would make you believe what sect of Christianity does the government force on the people? Many people don't even know what theocracy is. A government rule by a religion. As a Barry Goldwater Conservative I don't want any kind of religion in the government.

  • Deism didn't (and doesn't) mean being skeptical about Christ's divinity, it is a belief in God that is based on reason, not the Bible, so it rejects revelation and the idea that God interferes with His creation. The definition that you gave for deism is just Unitarianism. Also, Benjamin Franklin (in his autobiography) never said that deism was stupid or anything. Here is what he says in his autobiography: "But I was scarce fifteen, when, after doubting by turns of several points, as I found them disputed in the different books I read, I began to doubt of Revelation itself. Some books against Deism fell into my hands; they were said to be the substance of sermons preached at Boyle's Lectures. It happened that they wrought an effect on me quite contrary to what was intended by them; for the arguments of the Deists, which were quoted to be refuted, appeared to me much stronger than the refutations; in short, I soon became a thorough Deist. My arguments perverted some others, particularly Collins and Ralph; but, each of them having afterwards wrong'd me greatly without the least compunction, and recollecting Keith's conduct towards me (who was another freethinker), and my own towards Vernon and Miss Read, which at times gave me great trouble, I began to suspect that this doctrine, tho' it might be true, was not very useful. My London pamphlet, which had for its motto these lines of Dryden: "Whatever is, is right. Though purblind man Sees but a part o' the chain, the nearest link: His eyes not carrying to the equal beam, That poises all above;" and from the attributes of God, his infinite wisdom, goodness and power, concluded that nothing could possibly be wrong in the world, and that vice and virtue were empty distinctions, no such things existing, appear'd now not so clever a performance as I once thought it; and I doubted whether some error had not insinuated itself unperceiv'd into my argument, so as to infect all that follow'd, as is common in metaphysical reasonings. I grew convinc'd that truth, sincerity and integrity in dealings between man and man were of the utmost importance to the felicity of life; and I form'd written resolutions, which still remain in my journal book, to practice them ever while I lived. Revelation had indeed no weight with me, as such; but I entertain'd an opinion that, though certain actions might not be bad because they were forbidden by it, or good because it commanded them, yet probably these actions might be forbidden because they were bad for us, or commanded because they were beneficial to us, in their own natures, all the circumstances of things considered. And this persuasion, with the kind hand of Providence, or some guardian angel, or accidental favorable circumstances and situations, or all together, preserved me, thro' this dangerous time of youth, and the hazardous situations I was sometimes in among strangers, remote from the eye and advice of my father, without any willful gross immorality or injustice, that might have been expected from my want of religion. I say willful, because the instances I have mentioned had something of necessity in them, from my youth, inexperience, and the knavery of others. I had therefore a tolerable character to begin the world with; I valued it properly, and determin'd to preserve it."

    • @Reverend Veritas not what I meant at all... I think that religion could be offered in schools as an elective but not mandatory. I do not believe that the government should be advocating for our against religion but that has happened for decades from the secular left attacking anything to do with religion. They removed the right for a child to pray at school. They removed the pledge of allegiance, because the atheist didn't like the verse with God in it. Just as the DNC removed that verse at their convention. Nobody was ever forced in schools to pray or believe in Christianity, the only thing the government or school staff ever did was actively not interfere with students rights to pray or openly talk about God. It was the atheist who forced the government to remove any rights of Christians to pray at school etc...

NEVER is anything but a vague, deistic being referenced in official documents, and even when such a "god" arises it is never even alluded to as being the personal God of Abraham. Those Founders who were deists did not believe in a god that intervenes in the day-to-day affairs of mortal men, and others often openly criticized organized religion.

  • Only thing I disagree with is Barton's rabbi friend. He is completely miatranslating this. The word 'ger' in this verse appears twice. "Be kind to the ger, for you were once gerim(pl.) In Egypt. A ger is a sojourner, not a proselyte . A proselyte is a convert. The Israelites never converted to the Egyptian religion, but they did sojourn there. You would have to translate it "Be kind to the proselyte...for you were once proselyte in Egypt". Makes no sense. Every Jewish translation I've ever read translates it 'stranger' both times. Except one, the Artscroll. They translate it proselyte the first time and stranger the second, completely unjustifiable. It's a religious bias which is too lengthy to go into. Other than that, a great video.

  • This guy is not a historian. He has no credentials in history or law. His views are disavowed by real historians, even at conservative Christian universities like Grove City, Messiah, and Gordon. His book was disavowed and withdrawn from sale by a Christian publishing house because “basic truths just were not there”. It’s embarrassing that Crowder keeps having him on.

    • It's scary to think about you having only 2 upvotes. It's also scary how dishonest crowder sometimes can be - while other times completely transparent and compassionate.

  • Christianity is cucked and polytheistic, if you can't handle the truth, go cry in a corner. Crowder a mad Boi, can't seem to stop talking about Islam and slandering it. You mad Crowder? Ain't my fault your fake religion is based off of what some old dudes said at the council of nicea.

    • @RapidFireReaper When you're omnipotent the only jollies you can apparently get are found in screwing with the lives of mortals instead of helping them. It's more important to "not prove" you exist by appearing on a potato, a stain on a wall, or a grilled cheese sandwich rather than helping the poor directly because this would remove their "personal freedom to believe in Him or not".

  • Seriously? The “Dark Ages?” Wasn’t that when the great cathedrals were built? The rise of universities?

    Neil FrazierNeil FrazierVor 3 Monate
    • @KenjiDev You are giving plenty of false info, the so-called Dark Ages are considered by today's historians as an extraordinarily complex period. Calling the Middle Ages 'regressive' is just uneducated: regressive to what? Christianity was the new cultural paradigm. BTW, universities started being open from the late 11th century...

    • Look at the progress of the world in 400BC and the creation of Rome, and Greece, versus the progress of the world from 600 AD to 1400 AD. By far most change occurred in the "classical age" of Romans and Greece, due to the fact that religion wasn't as prevalent. IF you read anything about European History or took a class in it, you would know that in medieval times the majority of science was banned causing most of the technological progress to halt. ITs the reason why so many famous "scientist" or philosophers are either from the Classical Era or the Renaissance Era (after the dark ages).

    • Not the rise of universities, no. The dark ages were regressive. Most of old wisdoms - like roman/greek architecture, philosophy and art was discarded. "Wrong think" was burned - as in the object and the person. The romans were just as as open minded as - and comparable to the pre-civil-war USA:

  • And now you are not allowed to express your faith in school.

    Jojo Crazy CatJojo Crazy CatVor 3 Monate
    • Jojo, everyone is free to express and practice their respective faiths - You just can't have faculty and staff doing stuff like making the students pray to *THEIR* God. You can have a Bible in school, you can pray in school, you can even have a student-lead religious studies group, but you can't have teachers telling their students in class that the Bible and Creationism are accurate, scientific documents & theories.
