The U.S. Government Explained in 5 Minutes by Jthunderflash

Religion for Company Owners
Here on American soil, the United States Government tells enterprise owners that as company owners they have no correct to express their religious convictions or to workout their rights to hold correct to their religious beliefs since undertaking so could potentially infringe on the rights of other folks. The United States Government fundamentally tells organization owners that religion are not able to be allowed to influence their business if they are a “for profit” organization. On the other hand, there are needs to permit individual religious practices by the staff.
The government rules that a enterprise cannot be excused from complying with specified laws because of the owner’s individual religious convictions. This can be noticed obviously in the argument Hobby Lobby presented to the courts against compliance with a portion of the Reasonably priced Care ACT. The stance from Pastime Lobby is that it is a Christian based organization and that the necessity beneath the Cost-effective Care ACT to give each birth manage and the morning after pill violates their religious beliefs. The government on the other hand says that (as I recognize it) Pastime Lobby will not be excused simply because they are a “for revenue” enterprise. To me, this implies that religious beliefs are not afforded to people who earn a residing by means of the operation of their own business.
Do As I Say Not As I Do
What about our government? Our own government looks to have partnered with and established an embassy at the Vatican in Rome, and each president of latest background has manufactured it a point to visit the Pope. At a single level a United States President even hosted a birthday party for the leader of the Catholic Church.
The United States has also designed laws beneath Equal Employment Opportunity that tells business owners they should accommodate most requests from their employees to practice or stick to their very own religious beliefs, whilst telling the organization proprietor that they are not able to do the very same.
Working with the Vatican
The Catholic Church, managed by the Pope and his group at the Vatican, has followers in practically each nation in the globe and can have an massive impact on world or nearby policy, both favorably and unfavorably. You can see why our government would like to preserve relations with the Vatican. It would seem that we have the office of the president and the State Division functioning closely with the Catholic Church leaders, whilst at the identical time telling our reduce branches of the government to get rid of all references to God from their offices.
While our government leaders are meeting with the most influential religious leaders in the world and praying with their private ministers, they are also telling our children that they have no correct to pray, even just before a college football game!
Separation of Church & State
I know that right now, running through the back of your thoughts is some thing that has been driven into your head as a Constitutional requirement for “Separation of Church and State”. I implore you to seem up the United States Constitution, and go to the 1st Amendment. There, you will not discover this necessity expressly written as many of you may possibly think. It reads, “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free of charge workout thereof or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press or the proper of the folks peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.”
Initially, the 1st Amendment utilized to laws made only by Congress, but a later on Supreme Court ruling applied it also to the states. Fundamentally, the state or federal government cannot market any distinct religion. The court, (Justice Hugo Black) chose to use the phrases of Jefferson, “government have to be neutral among religions and nonreligion: it can’t encourage, endorse, or fund religion or religious institutions.”
With this statement, one may possibly commence to understand that by removing “God” from government offices and public schools, the government is getting rid of the support of religion, but not to me. First off, just believing in, mentioning, or possessing a representation of God does not constitute a religion. In my thoughts, there is no specific religion supported or promoted by enabling “God” voluntarily into a public school or government workplace. I do however see that the government, by the act of forcing the elimination of any mention of God from these institutions is supporting and advertising the distinct religion of Atheism, or any other distinct religion that teaches against the existence of God.
Telling these who think in God that they are not allowed to express their religious beliefs, properly promotes the religions that are towards God. It looks pretty clear to me that this truly should not be a extremely complex problem. Any law that tells me I are not able to practice my religion is by definition a law that breaks with the 1st Amendment (Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free of charge workout thereof) and also breaks from Jefferson’s phrases (government need to be neutral amongst religions and nonreligion). In my view, by making a ruling towards religion, we are no longer neutral, and we are prohibiting free of charge workout.
