  6. We are no longer allowing posts or threads that deny the existence of Covid-19. Members have lost loved ones to this virus and are grieving. As a Christian site, we do not need to add to the pain of the loss by allowing posts that deny the existence of the virus that killed their loved one. Future post denying the Covid-19 existence, calling it a hoax, will be addressed via the warning system.

    The Barbary Treaties was a treaty signed between the United States and Algiers in 1796.

    I shall quote only a brief excerpt:

    • As the government of the United States of America is not in any sense founded on the Christian Religion,

      --as it has in itself no character of enmity against the laws, religion or tranquillity of Musselmen,

      --and as the said States never have entered into any war or act of hostility against any Mohammedan nation, it is declared by the parties that no pretext arising from religious opinions shall ever interrupt the harmony existing between the two countries.
    Historical context - always a good thing. :cool:


    PS. This is not about the war with Iraq, so please don't bother to mention it on this thread. This is about something else entirely.
     
    We teamed up with Faith Counseling. Can they help you today?
