/but my premise of the puritans holds up.....this nation was settled by God-fearing believers..../
No, this nation was founded by the Founding Fathers, at least a hundred years after the Puritans arrived.
/If they had not come to America you'd be living in a tent and hunting deer for your supper./
Instead of polluting the water and skies, laying waste to forests, and hunting animals to extinction? If the Native Americans hadn't helped them, your precious Pilgrims would have starved to death and vanished off the face of the earth like the lost Roanoke colony.
/So wicca can scream for it's rights and muslims can build 20 million mosques in this nation.../
Which they can do, thanks to the First Amendment. Which was created by the FOUNDERS OF THIS COUNTRY, who were NOT the Pilgrims.
/at the end of the day it comes down to the Indians and the Pilgrims...../
May I ask, why?
/one group was already here worshipping the earth and gods of the earth and the other group came over worshipping the God of the Bible./
So? What's your point?
/So if it all goes back to worshipping the earth , sun, moon and stars or "a force" ,mohammed, or gaia or the worship of animals...we're gonna go right back to wearing buckskin and cooking over a fire..because this nation will not survive./
Here's some news for you, T.J., because it seems that you are sadly ignorant and are in need of a reality check. Native Americans today...wear jeans, drive cars, work in stores, much like the other ethnic groups in this country. Muslims and Wiccans do, too, it's called ADAPTING. How do you think the Native Americans learned to ride horses or shoot with guns? Horses and guns were not indigenous to this country; they were brought over by Europeans. And no one has called for a revision of the First Amendment or for Islam, Wicca, or Native American shamanism to become the primary religion in this country. So what the heck are you nattering about?
/It's one nation under ONE GOD..the Living God Most High.../
The First Amendment and Treaty of Tripoli beg to differ. You lose, moron.
