  •  Cromwell's New Model Army (6+ / 0-)

    I will have to look into that, that is very interesting. Thank you for posting and bringing this to light.

    post recommended especially for Cromwell reference

     I figured there were many good reasons for the Founder's to maintain a separation of church and state, and since many of them were well-educated as well as experiencing contemporary conflict, religious wars would be a 'teachable moment'. That also would explain a good bit about the reasoning of the 2nd Amendment. I figured it was because America was still young and if New York wanted more land from say Connecticut or Pennsylvania, the states would need the means to defend themselves from each other.

    I THINK it was Justice John Marshall who expressed his belief that laws typically arise from experience, and are not meant to badger the people.

    I figured it was something like the "Wars of Religion" that tore Europe asunder in the 16th and 17th centuries that would still be on people's minds like America's Civil War is to this day on ours, whether as academic pursuits or simple reenactments.

    Forget Occam's Razor, try hitting them with Darwin's Hammer!
