Our nation is in danger of the Court rubber-stamping any edict that Obama invents. We should all consider this as the beginning of the demise of the nation that our founders created.

Jeff, I usually like your work, but here you took an interesting theme off track with offensive name-calling. And if you want to quote founders on the role of religion in a democracy, you could have included Washington ("Reason and experience forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles") or Jefferson ("Can the liberties of a nation be thought secure when we have removed their only firm basis, a conviction in the minds of the people that their liberties are a gift from God?").
