The object then will be to make our independence a blessing. To do this we must secure our union on solid foundations; an herculean task and to effect which mountains of prejudice must be leveled! It requires all the virtue and all the abilities of the Country. ... We know each others sentiments, our views are the same: we have fought side by side to make America free, let us hand in hand struggle to make her happy.
~~Alexander Hamilton to John Laurens, August 15, 1782

The Intolerance of the Tolerant

It. Stinks.

I found this (semi-) hilarious parody of the atheistic movement, at the website of Gary DeMar's group, American Vision.

Think about that the next time someone reminds you of the Crusades or the Inquisition. Also remind them, that they need to brush up on their history.

    Thanks, Fida, for your kind words! It is a great honor to me to receive such kind words from you about my blog. I hope you find time and interest in continuing to visit.

    I have bookmarked your blog and will continue reading it. It is certainly worthy of Mrs. Mecomber's "Interesting Blog" award!

    Hello again,

    Thank you, your blog also has been added.

    I have visited your blogs one by one. They are interesting. This blog is most catching my eyes, he,he....

    By the way, if you have time, would you read my recent post and maybe you are interesting to fill the petition to support “Worldwide Vigil for Humanity.”

    Thank you,

  4. Hercules Mulligan said...

    Thanks for visiting, Fida. And thanks for linking to my blog on yours. It is a nice privilege.

    I left a comment on your post at your blog, and I signed the petition. Thanks for giving me that opportunity.

    I am glad that you like this blog. I hope to be adding more posts to it soon.

    God bless you and your family.

    I just finished Dawkings book, and I must say that I am in complete agreement with you. Excellent blog!

    Have you thought about joining us???

  6. Hercules Mulligan said...

    Hi Brad. Thanks for leaving your comment! Thanks also for your complement; I am honored.

    I haven't read through any of Dawkin's writings. But I have heard him on televised debates, heard him present his case, and read excerpts of his writings. Their brazenness is unpleasantly astounding. But I am glad that other people like you share my sentiments on this subject!

    As for joining the American Revolution Blog: I felt honored, and I apologize for my late response to your question; I had not totally forgotten it! It took me some time to consider what I should do, and as gracious as it is for you to offer me a place there, I think I should stay focused on my other activities at present. As I have pointed out before, I have many blogs, and obviously (because I have not been writing on them for a while) I have other activities that take higher priority.

    So I think I must decline. But I thank you for your generosity and your complement. I will return to the blog, and maybe leave my thoughts occasionally when I have some leisure. But right now, focus is my goal.

    First off, thanks for all of your wonderful comments to our blog. We've really enjoyed the discussion on Washington's faith, and hope to have many more. We hope you will continue to leave the kind of comments that you have previously made. They deeply enrich our discussions. I for one greatly appreciate your passion and insight!

    See you on the "blogosphere!"

  8. Hercules Mulligan said...

    Thanks Brad. I enjoy good discussion myself!

    I know we've met on a couple of blogs, but I should probably introduce myself formally. My name is Lindsey Shuman and I am a graduate student in early American history. I have enjoyed reading your various comments on one of the blogs I regularly write for (the American Revolution Blog). I've come to appreciate your perspective and insight on the religious nature of America's founding, a topic that I greatly enjoy discussing.

    Anyway, I was writing to ask you if you would like to join us in a new blogging venture. In light of some of the recent debates on religion and America's founding, a group of us has decided to start a new blog dedicated exclusively to the role of religion in early America. So far, we have a few people that have committed to the project, and they range from hard-core leftists to die-hard religious right supporters. We hope that the mix will inspire some good discussions on the topic.

    Anyway, if you would like to join us, we would LOVE to have your insight. Also, if you know of anyone that would like to join us (and who is well educated on the topic) we would love to have them as well.

    The website is:

    Hope to see you there!
    Lindsey Shuman

Thank You All for Reading!
