    Put in a provision wherby we can shoot those who want God taken out of everything. After all isn't that what our country was founded on.
    Chuck in good old Montana where we proudly wave our flag!

      We were not founded on the basis of God being mandatorily involved in everyday affairs. We were founded on the right to individual freedoms and to escape taxation & religious persecution from Britain through our nation's independence. Thankfully, we have the individual right to involve God in all aspects of our life if we choose. Patriotism has nothing to do with God, rather it is the devoted love of one's country and the respect of it's authority. If the majority votes to limit the input of God into every aspect of everyone's life, then a patriot would back that act of democracy in action. The beauty of democracy is that even as a country makes such changes socially, you still retain the individual right to involve God in your life all you want, without persecution or prosecution. So love God AND love your country, but realize they are 2 different things, so people of all religions and other differences can co-exist equally.

    I would have told them: "Go back and take remove any vestige of slavery from the Constitution. No 3/5 rule, no compromises in order to pacify South Carolina and Georgia. The constitution must be emphatic that slavery is not to be part of this nation. If the two southern colonies balk and decide not to participate, don't worry the advantages of participation will soon overweigh the disadvantage of eliminating slavery and they will join. By not demanding freedom for all people, your ideals will appear empty to the rest of the world. By putting off resolution of this issue you will not see it diminish, but rather become larger and more intractable.
