You don't have to speak English if you don't want to. The Laws are in English. The Civil Codes are as well. Almost all financial transactions are in English. You don't have to learn English, but you will be a second class citizen, if that.

I'd probably say not to champion Christians and Catholics of those who saved knowledge as they did their fair share of destroying it as well.

She knew all the letters but never learned them like us and that little ABC song.
I deal with people all the time that only speak broken English. That's not enough for some of my pinhead co-workers though.

What, specifically, are you asserting is a fabrication?

I could hardly be considered liberal.

I'm just stating facts. There's no law saying anyone has to speak anything. There's also no law that you have to listen to another language. For example, if you own a business and someone comes in asking for something in Spanish, you're well within your rights to kick their ass out.

They don't have to speak English, and you don't have to listen to other languages if you don't want.

If you need a translator in court the cards are already stacked against you. It's like going in without a lawyer. I can't speak legalise but I do understand a little Latin, Common-law, and I know a little code. Someone who doesn't speak English will not be able to tell if his lawyer or translator is full of it. He has to go on faith. If that isn't a second class citizen, I don't know what is.

You sit judging and accusing that the fundamentalist religious right as ignoring history - yet then commit the same exact act.

Boethius - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Also:
"One of the great contributions of the monasteries was the preservation of
the learning of the classical world and that of the church. Learning did not
entirely die out in western Europe, of course. Seeing that the ability to read
Greek was quickly disappearing, the sixth-century Roman scholar Boethius, an administrator under the Ostrogothic king Theodoric, determined to preserve Greek learning by translating all of Plato and Aristotle into Latin. Only Aristotle's treatises on logic were translated, and these remained the sole works of that philosopher available in the West until the twelfth century.

Unjustly accused of treachery by Theodoric, Boethius was thrown into prison, where he wrote The Consolation of Philosophy while awaiting execution. This little work later became a medieval textbook on philosophy.

Cassiodorus, a contemporary of Boethius who had also served Theodoric,
devoted most of his life to the collection and preservation of classical
knowledge. By encouraging the monks to copy valuable manuscripts, he was instrumental in making the monasteries centers of learning. Following his example, many monasteries established scriptoria, departments concerned exclusively with copying manuscripts"
Christianity, The Church In The Early Middle Ages

Yes. organized religion in general has its flaws, some eggregious, as it is a human creation, but to ignore the benefits it has passed on to us through our history because of these flaws is just mind boggling .

No sir, I did not commit the same act at all. I'm not sure why you would accuse me of that.
