Shako:wi Cultural Center, Oneida, NY

Thursday, July 19, 2007

On the same day that we visited the Canal Town Museum in Canastota, we stopped by the Shako:wi Cultural Center in Oneida, NY. It is a beautiful museum about the Oneida Indians of Upstate New York.

There is no record of any Founding Father using the Great Law of Peace to write the Constitution. -- During the Convention when the Constitution was debated over and written, there were many documents, books, and papers distributed and read. George Washington distributed the Fundamental Orders of Connecticut, which is why Connecticut is called "The Constitution State" today. --

You are trying to replace one myth with another. It's the multiculturalist myth v. the Christian Nation myth. George Washington didn't distribute the Fundamental Orders of Connecticut at the CC. This is a myth peddled by Peter Marshall whose historiography is abominable.

Uh huh. So Connecticut's state motto is a myth, too, then, huh? Wow, I wonder if Connecticut knows this. You are so wonderful, perhaps you can enlighten them after all these years...

The whole premise of the Fundamental Orders (have you even read it) is that the individual has rights under God and governments are established to protect these rights. This concept wasn't exactly in the newspapers every day. This document was one of the "connect the dots" documents that helped shape and form our way of government.

How do you know GW didn't distribute it? Your main basis for "knowing" is that you despise Peter Marshall and the Christian nation claim. Hatred isn't a good enough reason for "proving" something a myth, sorry.

Actually no. I've read the FOC and it doesn't say that. That's what the Declaration of Independence says.

The state of Conn. might call itself "the Constitution State" but it doesn't peddle the myth that GW passed out that document that the CC.

As far as whether he did it or not, PROVE IT by showing me primary sources -- notes from the Constitutional Convention or whatnot -- that GW did this.

"Your main basis for 'knowing' is that you despise Peter Marshall and the Christian nation claim. Hatred isn't a good enough reason for 'proving' something a myth, sorry."

No my main basis for knowing is that I've read the primary sources and know what is and is not there.

And making ad hominem attacks isn't good enough to win arguments either.

Wrong, Jonathan. Please go take your hate elsewhere. I don't have the time nor the energy to dispute your errors one by one. Maybe one thing I can recommend-- if you are looking for a quickie, condensed review of America's documents and history-- is the 1892 Supreme Court case of the Holy Trinity Church vs. The United States. The Court's decision is very instructional... if a person is willing to overcome bigotry, of course.

P.S. About the Washington and the Fundamental Orders-- I did take the word of a historian for granted on that, but it wasn't your arch-enemy Rev. Peter Marshall's. I don't have time to research it right now, but the concept of individual rights and government's role in protecting them is clear as a bell in the Orders as well as the Declaration.
