Nullify Establishment Tyranny:
a.k.a. Establishment of Religion Clause Preservation Act.
I don't know how detailed this should
be but perhaps just a simple law defining "establishment" in the great
state is all that is needed. However this div is similar to
Jefferson's non establishment bill.
The First Amendment Preservation Act (Part 1):
- Whereas, The United States of America has a default culture
based in part on a default religion of which there are many sects and
denominations none of which have been established by Congress or any
state law since Thomas
Jefferson's Religious Freedom Act of 1777. ]  ,
- Whereas, the courts have methodically found
an "establishment of religion" around every "penumbra" and
then declaring any exercise of religion or faith, or any sect's
demonstration of tradition as an establishment of religion.
- Whereas, the courts have used a unconstitutional clause
i.e. "separation of church and state" to strike biased
decrees against America's unestablished default religion.
- Whereas, under the first amendment there is no
"establishment of religion" and references to it are void and
- Whereas, in all of the founding documents there
is no "separation of church and state" clause and references to it are
void and unenforceable.
- Therefore, it is necessary to liberate the church from the
"separation" clause and to define the requirements for an
"establishment of religion" in the great state of __(STATE)__ .
The "separation of church and state" clause is
not in the founding documents of __(STATE)__
federal and is therefore unenforceable, null and void.
Under the 1st and 10th Amendments of the Constitution of the United
States and The __(STATE)__
Constitution Article (?). SECTION (§
freedom" , the clause "establishment of religion",
whether state or federal, shall be interpreted to mean a
law that specifically identifies a named, legally incorporated
and state registered religious sect or denomination that (receives a majority of it's support
directly from the government)
directly government supported. Unless a specific law
can be cited where a religious corporation specifically meets these
criteria, there is no legal standing for establishment.
Under the 1st and 10th Amendments of the Constitution of the United
States and __STATE__ (Florida Constitution Article
SECTION 3."Religious freedom" ), the
"establishment of religion",
shall be interpreted to mean a law that specifically
identifies a certain named, legally incorporated and state
registered religious sect or denomination that is identified
established" by the state legislature as the
religion and where the staff and employees are "directly
i.e employed by and on the payroll of
the state. Unless a
specific duly enacted law of establishment can be cited there is no
establishment. (from 2015-01-eNL.ReligiousFreedomSchools.html

services with, for

natural rights of mankind, and that if any court decisions shall find
an establishment of religion that violates this act or if any act shall
be hereafter passed to repeal the present or to narrow its operation,
such actions will be an infringement of natural right; the authors of
such shall be subject to immediate investigation by a Special Grand
Jury of The People and be subject to the following penalties: (ref.

behalf of this state and violates the prohibitions of this act shall be

Governor and shall be retroactive on all __(STATE)__
districts and localities, and federal and state case

to nullify one of SCOTUS' many power grabs and religious biases in
case law. Send this to your state representatives and suggest
to them that this is overdue and ask them if they will act on it. For
