‘The Treaty of Tripoli’ has nothing to do with the constitution. Its was a Â diplomatic document to appease the savage Bey of Â Tripoli who’s pirates (“privateers”) Â used to raid our ships. Its patently absurd to allow atheist jerks to put their ignorant Â nonsense on an equal footing with the 1o commandments.
The treaty was a routine diplomatic agreement but has attracted later attention because the English version included a clause about religion in the United States.
Here it is, its known as clause 11, which does not appear in the Arabic version of the document. It is therefore irrelevant. Â It was invalid then and it is invalid now.
As the Government of the United States of America is not, in any sense, founded on the Christian religion,â€”as it has in itself no character of enmity against the laws, religion, or tranquility, of Mussulmen [Muslims],â€”and as the said States never entered into any war or act of hostility against any Mahometan [Mohammedan] nation, it is declared by the parties that no pretext arising from religious opinions shall ever produce an interruption of the harmony existing between the two countries.
These geniuses think that they’veÂ made a slur against Christianity by wayÂ of a nonsequitur, ancient Mosaic lawÂ as a proscription against Christianity. Brilliant. Â And by brilliant, I mean absolutely ignorant, of course.
Somehow, the irony of Islam escapes them.
‘The Treaty of Tripoli’ was not written by Adams, it was written by a diplomat and its purpose was the purpose of all diplomats: ‘Lie through your teeth until you get the other side to agree with what you want’……
What Adams actually said was this:
“Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.”
This Florida effort by the atheists is a mistake on their part. It does nothing more than proclaim that their entire agenda is one of spite, puerility, ignorance and hate.
As atheists push for chaplain positions within the military, Rep. Mike Conaway (R-TX) and others within the House of Representatives ask why the family of a solider KIA would want to be told their son or daughter is now “worm food”? (byÂ AWR HAWKINS)
