Nice one.

"Is this current religious culture just the perfect storm of hypocrisy and bigotry in one delicious hate-filled sandwich? Are you guys even TRYING to mask your discrimination against anybody who does not believe the same thing that you do? Need more proof that there is still plenty of praying in schools? Have you ever looked at a classroom of scared 15 year old students right before an exam?

Just be consistent. Understand that if you want religion taught in schools, it can’t just be YOUR religion. If you are against the Muslim students being allowed to have a few minutes to meet and pray, you should also be outraged at the Christian prayer group that meets once a week after school.

But you aren’t, are you?
"

Amen.

I should rephrase the question to ask what percentage of the US population purports that the ACLU speaks for them?

Card carrying member for decades now, and proud to be one...


And I am a card carrying lifelong member of the NRA.

Which one will carry us to freedom? I don't suspect it shall be the ACLU.........
I'll take my chances with the NRA.

You best arm up there in CA.......

I praise God when and where I see fit. Which, as I see fit, is early and often , like the dems stole the election. My only comfort is, I am stealing my salvation...LOL.

They can have what's left, and it is NOT going to be much.

Look, make fun of me if you will.......
I give thanks to God every night if I get some sleep.
I give thanks to God ever single day whilst I am walking the parking lot to go to work.
I 'ask' God for his healing blessings for Lori, Squirrel, Jason, Mitch, and just about ever kitty on the planet that deserves a home and does not have one yet.\
I don't 'demand' anything of my God.......it is his to decide which wishes to grant or deny in this life.

So.......I ask you, what do you wish God would grant you?

I am not a zealot......I just thought it was time for somebody to take a stand on His behalf.

You may all believe what you want or do not want to believe.

Me? I'll cast my lot with God almighty.

You all have a nice day now, and forget about me and what I said, like most of this nation now has.

And Obama can kiss my christian ass.

A respite from the Atheist and DEM/Lib Zealots.

The only separation of Church and state is the one that forbids one Church to fit all at the federal level. As I have said here before Jefferson held Anglican Service in the Halls of congress. FULL SERVICE, not just prayer. State has state Faiths, Maryland is just one of many examples.

This is a Christian Nation. Allow me to repeat myself, a Christian Nation. As Christians we allow others to worship or NOT worship as they see fit. We all ALL Faiths and Creeds.

Most misquote and misunderstand Jefferson Wall of Separation letter. Not surprised here at all.

ID, Since you use the word socialist often in you posts I would like to be able to understand what you are talking about. I have asked you for your definition of the the word 4 times and have not seen a response from you except your stating that you have previously give your definition. I have reread your posts and was unable to verify your claim, so for the 5th time I ask what is your definition of a socialist?

Hi Robert.

If you watch the picture of God with a gun in his right arm on that web-page, my best guess is that freedom of expression or speech is not necessarily the same as freedom of "belief".

Meaning that such a picture may go well for some people who are supposed to believe, but not so well for others. The same may very likely happen to those of us here who are either agnostics or atheists. They may either like or dislike this picture.

My best guess is that religion is not anything better off when such ideas of creationism are being displayed or portrayed.

Thinking a little about it - I guess you may be right on this since it was me that mentioned the Devil. Still ...


We have the right to freedom of speech in this country. This is fully expressed in the allowance of Porn in print as well as on the web. Some places on the web are a little backward and don't FULLY understand such things as our Bill of Rights. Just a little fact I thought Id let you in on....{smile}


And all web sites have TOS. edit- {smile}

Why don't you share some of your favorite porn sites ID?
You seem like the type who'd have quite a list of online sources to compliment your print porn collection.
