Patrick Henry was a real melodramatic drama queen at the dinner table if I remember correctly.

Give me the potatoes or give me death!

Will you also be memorizing his speech opposing the Constitution? Or his legislation to use tax dollars to support churches?

Why limit it just to the speech at the Virginia Convention? Isn't that something of a disservice to students?

One would want students to learn this. However they can't even say the Pledge of Allegiance or a prayer without controversy.  We punish the majority to please the will of the minority.  Those that disagree with the pledge or the mention of God certainly can remain silent, yet we see the trend each and every day. 

It's called political correctness.


It's called the U.S. Constitution and you're welcome to leave should you find its contents too confining..

Show me where it's against saying the pledge.


Show me where it mandates a pledge.




Quote:
Better yet show me where it says that you have to say under God.  Anyone that doesn't want to say it is free not to.  No law against saying it and no law preventing you from not.


Yes.. Thanks to the Bill of Rights you are not allowed to enforce such on citizens.

If it weren't for your constitutionally protected freedom of speech we just might be able to throw your ignorant ass out of here but sadly the admins here protect morons like you..


Your disdain for the Bill of Rights is duly noted..

You whine quite well for a newb.. clearly you're a natural.
