Our biggest release of all time! Guerilla is getting ready to drop megaton heavy bass from the masters of the darkside Technical Itch & Dylan! Two original works from the masters themselves....
The most common irrational claims our society faces today are those offered by religion,Thomas Jefferson once said “Religion is a matter which lies solely between man and his god, I contemplate with sovereign reverence, that act of building a wall of separation between church and state", The United States constitution makes no mention of religion or Christianity, When it does mention religion it is restricted, such as “No religious test shall ever be required as a qualification to any office or public trust “ - in article 4.
The 1st amendment says “congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the pre exercise thereof, keeping government and religion isolated allows all of us to worship or not worship as we wish. I know at least ten churches that are all within ten minute drive from my apt, different denominations, different languages, presumable with different doctrines and different congregations. My family and I are free to attend, any, all or none of these as we see fit, freedom of religion also means freedom from religion. They are two sides of the same coin; you cannot have one without the other,
Yet all around us we see, arguably subtle but definite violations of dare I say this “sacred freedom"
The addition of " In God We Trust " on our coins in 1864, Our dollar bills in 1957, the insertion of Under God into the national pledge of allegiance in 1954, and our own state pledge this year, are direct, if minute infusion of religion into the public sphere, It is all too easy to dismiss this, as innocuous enough. What could be more all-encompassing, and inclusively vague, than in simply saying God, and leaving up to each individual to interpret what God means to them?
The belief in a single deity is a pendant of the great Abraham religions of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam, which does include the majority of Americans. However the idea does conflict with the belief of some religions, Buddhists don’t believe in a personal deity, Buddhists believe in many deities, Buddhist believe in a god & a goddess. Even if we acknowledge these inquisitions, it is easy to write it off as inconsequential, I cannot help but ask; How dubious would you feel if our pledge said "One Nation OVER God?, or our dollar bill said " In Atheism We Trust " ? We are all free to worship or not worship, as we please in our private lives. Yet we are free to do so precisely because we live in a secular nation. All of us, those who have faith as well as those without, should be opposed to any intersection of church & state no matter how small…
