Quote from: NancyP on April 06, 2015, 10:30:35 amThe federal RFRA concerned the interaction of the Federal Government with various religious minorities.Many state level RFRAs are close copies of the federal law and thus concern ONLY the interaction of the State Government with various religious minorities. The Indiana and Arkansas RFRAs covered not only state governments but also any interaction between two private parties, specifically including for-profit corporations.
Quote from: mezzoduomo on April 04, 2015, 09:50:24 pm"By the quotes, letters, and documents they left behind, it is clear that most of our founding fathers wished to see slavery ended, though they did not believe it possible for it to happen in their lifetimes. Some of them, most notably Benjamin Franklin, Alexander Hamilton, and John Jay, were very supportive of the rapidly growing abolitionist movement. Benjamin Franklin was President of the Pennsylvania society for Promoting the Abolition of Slavery, which included Jay and Hamilton. The year he died, he signed a petition for the abolition of all slavery. He died before he got to see it become a reality. Alexander Hamilton grew up with a deep rooted hatred of the slave trade that fueled his work as an avid supporter of the abolitionists his entire life."Source: Revolutionary-War.net
Quote from: mezzoduomo on April 04, 2015, 09:50:24 pmDo your homework, AlterEgo. The founding fathers were clearly hypocrites, since many owned slaves, but you're wrong in asserting that they did not consider blacks to be humans.
Quote from: mezzoduomo on April 04, 2015, 09:50:24 pm From its inception, 60% of the early United States did not allow slavery, and perhaps you've heard of the Civil War.

Quote from: mezzoduomo on April 06, 2015, 01:40:27 pmI was reacting to your blanket comment that the founding fathers considered blacks and women as non-human.
Quote from: mezzoduomo on April 06, 2015, 01:40:27 pmClearly some did, and some did not. In 1789, there were 5 free and 8 slave states
