I believe this is the one best patriotic emails I've sent.

Please take the time to read the words and consider them.

It's really worth your time!

We all need to share this, ...especially the Ronald Reagan quote.

“Without God, there is no virtue, because there’s no prompting of the conscience. Without God, we’re mired in the material, that flat world that tells us only what the senses perceive.”
– Ronald Reagan

Said by a man who never once in his life cracked
a book on philosophy.

"Millions of innocent men, women and children, since the introduction of Christianity, have been burnt, tortured, fined and imprisoned; yet we have not advanced one inch towards uniformity."
-- Thomas Jefferson

"Every new and successful example, therefore, of a perfect separation between the ecclesiastical and civil matters, is of importance; and I have no doubt that every new example will succeed, as every past one has done, in showing that religion and Government will both exist in greater purity the less they are mixed together."
-- James Madison

"Let us all labor to add all needful guarantees for the more perfect security of free thought, free speech and free press, pure morals, unfettered religious sentiments, and of equal rights and privileges to all men, irrespective of nationality, color or religion. Encourage free schools, and resolve that not one dollar of money be appropriated to the support of any sectarian school. [...] Keep church and state forever separarate."
-- Ulysses S. Grant

"Every sectary, except the Quakers, has been a persecutor. Those who fled from persecution persecuted in their turn, and it is this confusion of creeds that has filled the world with persecution and deluged it with blood. [...]
The key of heaven is not in the keeping of any sect, nor ought the road to it be obstructed by any."
-- Thomas Paine

"They will beat their swords into plowshares and their spears into pruning hooks. Nation will not take up sword against nation, nor will they train for war anymore."
Isaiah 2:4 & Micah 4:3

I cannot teach you violence as I don't believe in it. I can only teach you not to bow your heads before anyone even at the cost of your life.
Mahatma Gandhi

It is necessary to help others, not only in our prayers, but in our daily lives. If we find we cannot help others, the least we can do is to desist from harming them.
Dalai Lama

All, too, will bear in mind this sacred principle, that though the will of the majority is in all cases to prevail, that will, to be rightful, must be reasonable; that the minority possess their equal rights, which equal laws must protect, and to violate which would be oppression.
Thomas Jefferson, 3/4/1801

Whilst we assert for ourselves a freedom to embrace, to profess and observe the Religion which we believe to be of divine origin, we cannot deny equal freedom to those whose minds have not yet yielded to the evidence which has convinced us. If this freedom be abused, it is an offense against God, not against man: To God, therefore, not to man, must an account of it be rendered.
James Madison

Government being, among other purposes, instituted to protect the consciences of men from oppression, it is certainly the duty of Rulers, not only to abstain from it themselves, but according to their stations, to prevent it in others.
George Washington, 9/28/1789

As to religion, I hold it to be the indispensable duty of government to protect all conscientious protesters thereof, and I know of no other business government has to do therewith.
Thomas Paine, Commonsense, 1776

"That's the phoniest argument there is... This whole nation was founded as one nation under God."

Sort of tangentially related....

If you want to have some fun with the dumber wingnuts, tell them you'll pay them a generous sum of money if they can find any mention of God in the Constitution, other than the "anno domini" of the date.

If they take you up on it, they'll actually have to read the Constitution - it's win-win!

Here's my question:

Who's funding Allegoria Productions?

What I like about this forward is the first line:

"I believe this is the one best patriotic emails I've sent."

Do you think he starts all his emails this way? "I believe this is one of the most sincere birthday wishes I've sent." "I believe this is one of the funniest lists of random facts I've sent."
Also, *how* many patriotic emails does this guy send? I'm imagining his friends and family logging in every morning and having to sludge through four or five pictures of bald eagles and USA's on flag backgrounds.
