In Utah A = B
What, you mean a large of the populous is part the same religion, which means that they will probably vote for people with the same ideals? Amazing! Democracy in action, right there. The majority wins.
don't kid yourself. democrats and republicans both play the church card.great work, nontheless! :)
Also acceptable- A+B=How America was founded.
Believing with you that religion is a matter which lies solely between man & his god, that he owes account to none other for his faith or his worship, that the legitimate powers of government reach actions only and not opinions, I contemplate with sovereign reverence that act of the whole American people which declared that their legislature should "make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof;" thus building a wall of eternal separation between Church & State. Congress thus inhibited from acts respecting religion, and the Executive authorised only to execute their acts, I have refrained from prescribing even those occasional performances of devotion, practiced indeed by the Executive of another nation as the legal head of its church, but subject here, as religious exercises only to the voluntary regulations and discipline of each respective sect.I reciprocate your kind prayers for the protection & blessing of the common father and creator of man, and tender you for yourselves & the Danbury Baptist [your religious] association assurances of my high respect & esteem.Thomas JeffersonJan. 1. 1802.Any other questions about how America was founded?
And no, I didn't get that from wikipedia. I got it from the Library of Congress website. Here's the link.http://www.loc.gov/loc/lcib/9806/danpost.html
